WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly bookish meme formally hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm, and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words. This meme consists of answering the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What am I currently reading?

7171771I still haven’t gMy Soul to Save (Soul Screamers, #2)otten any further into the first book in The Monstrumologist series by Rick Yancey, The Monstrumologist. That’s because I am STILL waiting for it from the library. Did I mention it was going to take awhile for me to finish this one? Because it is. I am also still working on the second book in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent, My Soul to SaveAlmost done with it though! Maybe I’ll be able to finish it this weekend, if not sooner.


What did I recently finish reading?

3777732Last night I finished up the third book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, City of GlassI forgot how much I enjoyed this installment. I liked it a bit better than the second, but not quite as mush as the first. I can’t wait to read the next three books for the first time (since these past three were a reread for me).

 


What do I think I’ll read next?

10644236Next up I’ll be reading the first book in The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel. For those who do not know, this series is actually a prequel series to the TMI series above. Because TMI was originally supposed to be just a trilogy, this book came out before the fourth TMI book. I actually read Clockwork Angel when it first came out, but then decided to wait to finish the series when it was complete. And because this series was created right alongside the rest of the TMI books, I’ve decided to read this series first…or switch between the two. I haven’t decided yet. So yeah.

Happy reading! :)

“What’s wrong with her soul?” Emma asked Tod, having obviously come to the conclusion that he was her best source of information.
The reaper shrugged. “Nothing. She’s just not actually in possession of it. At the moment.”

30 Days of Music: 10, 11, & 12

10 – A song that makes you feel better when you’re down

Umm, I don’t usually listen to specific music when I’m down…which isn’t often in the first place. But I’ll go with a song that I heard for the first time not too long ago and I find it very soothing, I guess? xD Blinded by the Moonlight by The Amplifetes.

11 – Your favorite instrumental song

I don’t really listen to instrumental songs either…heh ^^; So, I’m going to pick a song from The Legend of Zelda because a lot of that is instrumental. This is the song that plays when you visit the Great Fairy’s Fountain.

12 – A song you’re ashamed you like

Okay, so I’ve never been a Bieber fan…ever, but one of his new songs is frickin’ catchy, damn it. So I choose Love Yourself by Justin Bieber.

What am I currently reading?

71717713777732So, this section is going to look exactly the same as last week. I still haven’t gotten further into the first book in The Monstrumologist series by Rick Yancey, The Monstrumologist.  That would be because I am still waiting to get it back from the library. I’m at least the second person waiting for it now, instead of the third. Yay? And, same as before, I started the third book in My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers, #2)The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, City of Glass. I’m a bit further into it than I was last week and am enjoying it, as I did the first time I read it. I am also still working on the second book in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent, My Soul to SaveI’m about halfway done I believe…? The plot for this one is quite interesting so I’m excited to see how this one wraps up.


What did I recently finish reading?

13611440Last week I mentioned that I was also working on the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics. Well, I finished up the first arc, The Promise, and am waiting for the next arc to come in the mail. I had to buy a few things off Amazon and it’s hard for me to not buy more things to get free shipping…so I bought more comics! xD I definitely recommend these to fans of the show. My friend said they’re also possibly making The Legend of Korra comics as well. I’d be interested in those too, although personally I enjoyed the original show more.


What do I think I’ll read next?

Next up I’ll be continuing all three of the series in the first section, as well as the Avatar comics once they come in the mail!

Happy reading! :)

Sebastian!” Isabelle called. “Don’t let her go upstairs!”
The boy looked up, startled – and a moment later was in front of Clary, blocking her path to the stairs. Clary skidded to a halt – she’d never seen anyone move that fast, except Jace. The boy wasn’t even out of breath; in fact, he was smiling at her.
“So this is the famous Clary.” His smile lit of his face, and Clary felt her breath catch.

What am I currently reading?

71717713777732I am still plugging away at the first book in The Monstrumologist series by Rick Yancey, The Monstrumologist.  Well, that’s kind of a lie because I am still third in line to get it back from the library. Curse people who are reading the same book as me! xD So while I’m waiting, I started the third book in My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers, #2)The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, City of Glass. However, I didn’t get very far. I read a few pages earlier in the day yesterday and I was going to continue reading at work last night. One of my jobs is fairly slow-going so I have plenty of reading time. BUT, apparently my boss’s  boss’s boss was roaming around and my boss didn’t want me reading like I normally do. I was so sad… T_T Also, I am finally getting back to the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. I started the second book in the series,  My Soul to Saveyesterday.


What did I recently finish reading?

I2572997 finished up reading Night Shift by Lilith Saintcrow, the first book in the Jill Kismet series, on Monday night. As I mentioned last week, I wasn’t a huge fan of Saintcrow’s Dante Valentine series, but I did like this one better so far. I enjoyed the characters, but maybe there’s something about the author’s writing style I just don’t care for? Cause I was still kinda ‘eh’ about it for some reason. But I still plan on continuing the series.

 


What do I think I’ll read next?

13611440Next up I’ll just keep plugging away at all the series I’ve mentioned above. I have also been zooming through the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics. For those of you who don’t know, they created comics centering on what took place after the show ended. I love love love this show and so far the comics have been great – it helps that they’re actually written by the shows creators. I’m about to start the last book in the first arc, The Promise, Part 3.

 

Happy reading! :)

I am not reading anything at the moment, having finished up a book last night, so I’ll just do a teaser from the book I plan on starting next, the third book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, City of Glass.

My teaser:

The cold snap of the previous week was over; the sun was shining brightly as Clary hurried across Luke’s dusty front yard, the hood of her jacket up to keep her hair from blowing across her face. The weather might have warmed up, but the wind off the East River could still be brutal. It carried with it a faint chemical smell, mixed with the Brooklyn smell of asphalt, gasoline, and burned sugar from the abandoned factory down the street.
