What am I currently reading?

I’m still working on reading the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Lost Souls, by Cassandra Clare. I’m about halfway done and will possibly be able to finish it up next week. We shall see. But it’s good so far. Lots of shit is going down. In a good way? xD

 

 

 


What did I recently finish reading?

Not really anything to put in this section. Nothing different from last week, anyway.


What do I think I’ll read next?

8755785White Witch, Black Curse (The Hollows, #7)And this section is the same as well. I’ll be continuing The Hollows series by Kim Harrison with the seventh book, White Witch, Black Curse. There’s only one copy of this one at the library and I’ve been waiting for it for a few weeks now, so I’m hoping whoever has it finishes up sooooon. And then, after I finish City of Lost Souls, I’ll be reading the sixth and final book in Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series, City of Heavenly Fire.

Teaser Tuesdays #40 – June 28th

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of A Daily RhythmTo play along just follow the rules below!

Rules:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (I usually do a bit more than two)
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Okay, so I’m still plugging away at the the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Lost Souls, by Cassandra Clare. Recently I’ve been trying to catch up on TV shows, as well as anime, plus I’m getting back into playing my Xbox. I get in weird moods where I’ll play a lot of video games, then not even touch them for months. But after watching E3 it got me in the mood. Anyway, that’s why my reading has been on the back burner for the past week. Plus, my online class. However, I finished that up this morning so yay!

My teaser:

“Alec!” Magnus came skidding into the living room and blew a kiss to his boyfriend across the room. Having discarded his slippers, he was barefoot now. His cat’s eyes shone as he looked at Alec.

WWW Wednesdays #39 – June 15th

Okay, so in my last Teaser Tuesday post I mentioned I was doing an online summer course. Between that and my two jobs, I have had pretty much no time to do anything, let alone blog. So once more I will apologize for my lack of posts and overall interactive-ness with the blogging community these past couple weeks. But I’ll be wrapping up with class in the next two weeks so hopefully after that I’ll be a bit more active.

What am I currently reading?

8755776 I have finally started reading the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Lost Souls, by Cassandra Clare. I was planning on reading this one much sooner, but I read a few books ahead of it instead. However, last night I got around to starting this one so I’m hoping to focus on it until I’m finished. I just happen to have a short attention span about certain things, so if I’m reading something else that interests me just a bit more at the time, I focus on that book instead. I’m only a couple chapters into this one, though, and I’m thinking it’ll hold my interest until the end.


What did I recently finish reading?

1745054928356624In my last TT post, I stated that I was reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Well, I finished that. Obviously. Since I’m talking about it in this section. Anyway, it was a really enjoyable book. I like Rowell’s writing style a lot and her characters are fun. I think the only complaint I have about it is that I felt like it dragged on. Not tons, but a bit. I felt the same about Rowell’s other novel, Carry On, which I read after finishing Fangirl. Loved the story and the characters, but once again, I thought there were a few things she could have left out. Maybe it’s just me though? But both books definitely made me a Simon x Baz fan.

I’m a10164126shamed to say that it took me two months to read, but I finally finished the sixth book in The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, The Outlaw Demon WailsNot because it wasn’t good, but because I was preoccupied with reading other books. Once I got back to reading this one, however, I finished it pretty quickly. It was just as good as the others in the series – even better than a few. As I’ve mentioned multiple times, I’m really enjoying this series and am planning on continuing it until the end. If you’re looking for an urban fantasy story with a kick-ass protagonist then definitely check this series out.


What do I think I’ll read next?

8755785White Witch, Black Curse (The Hollows, #7)Next up, I’ll be continuing The Hollows series by Kim Harrison with the seventh book, White Witch, Black Curse. And then, after I finish City of Lost Souls, I’ll be reading the sixth and final book in Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series, City of Heavenly Fire.
