Alrighty then, I have finally hopped on the Rainbow Rowell train and began reading her novel, Fangirl, yesterday. So far I’m really diggin’ it and I can’t wait to read some more tonight at one of my slower-going jobs. I would have probably read more today but I began a summer online class and that’s definitely going to be keep me busy for the next month. Oh joy.

If Wren knew how upset Cath was right now, she wouldn’t be a bitch about it. She’d understand. She’d tug Cath back from the edge – Wren was really good at that.
If Wren were here… Cath laughed. It came out like a sob. (
What the eff, she thought, why is everything coming out like a sob?)
If Wren were here, she’d call an Emergency Kanye Party.

WWW Wednesdays #38 – May 25th

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?

1016412625810368For those of you who read my TT posts yesterday, you’re already aware that I am still slowly plugging away at the sixth book in The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, The Outlaw Demon Wails. I’m ashamed to say I’ve been working on this book for almost two months now, however, that is due to the fact that I keep finding myself occupied with reading other things. Doesn’t everyone get those times where you’re just feeling one book over another? So that’s been me recently. Also, I started reading the Captive Prince trilogy and am now almost done with the third book, Kings Risingby C. S. Pacat. I’ll most likely finish it this week. I’ll talk a bit more about this series in the next section.


What did I recently finish reading?

120000206752378So I finally got my hands on Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz and finished it in less than a day, if I remember correctly. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were entertaining and where some may have found the pace on the slow side, I thought it went together nicely with the story. I also enjoyed the author’s writing style. I will definitely read another book about Aristotle and Dante if there happens to be one. I also finished the fourth book in the The Mortal Instruments series, City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. As I mentioned in my last WWW post, this book focused a lot more on Clary’s best friend Simon and I was glad. I really enjoy Simon as a character. Overall, it was a good installment and I’m looking forward to reading the next two.

23398894Recently I also finished reading Captive Prince and Prince’s Gambit, book one and two of the Captive Prince trilogy by C. S. Pacat. I’ve really been enjoying this series and am sad that I’ll be finishing up the third one so soon. I’ve had Captive Prince on my TBR list for awhile, but what prompted me to read it at this current time was actually a fellow bloggers review. So thanks a bunch Erika @ Rickus Bookshelf! Here’s a link to her review of the first book. For those who are unaware, this series is M x M, or male x male, so for people that don’t tend to read books in that genre, I wouldn’t recommend it. For those that are curious, maybe start with some YA novels instead? This is an adult fiction series and there are many themes in this trilogy, as Erika warned about in her review, that certain readers may not be comfortable with. But honestly, most of that was in the first book. If you’re fine after reading that one then the next two won’t be a problem. I may do a review of this series once I’m finished, but I’m known to say that and…well, not do one. So we’ll see.


What do I think I’ll read next?

8755776Next up I’ll be reading the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Lost Souls, by Cassandra Clare. I’m hoping the last two installments in this series don’t disappoint. I will be very sad if they do….

 

 

Happy reading! :)

Since the Turn – the nightmarish three years following the supernatural species coming out of the closet – the holiday [Halloween] had been gaining strength until now it was celebrated for an entire week, becoming the unofficial celebration for the Turn itself.

So yeah…

I just wanted to make a quick post to apologize for being rather non-existent these past couple of weeks. I was actually enjoying an amazing vacation in Hawaii. I was planning on making a post before leaving, but yeah…procrastination! This is my second day back and I’m still trying to adjust to the time zone again and honestly I’m still in vacation-mode. Which will suck tomorrow when I return to work. But I wanted to give everyone a heads-up. Also, I’ve never really done a super personal post before, but I think I may do one about my trip. Just for fun!

Happy reading! :) And mahalo (thanks) for listening to me ramble, as usual~!
