►What am I currently reading?◄
Currently I am reading The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This is my book club’s February read. I’m only a couple chapters in, so I need to get my butt in gear and read some more since our meeting is next week. I’m enjoying it so far and am really interested to see where it goes, since quite a bit has happened already. I’m also debating about watching the movie after reading it to see how they did.
►What did I recently finish reading?◄
I finished reading Red Rising by Pierce Brown and quickly jumped into the second book in the series, Golden Son. Red Rising was a fantastic beginning to this series. I admit I personally had to get through the first part to start really getting into the book, and it took me a bit to get used to Brown’s writing style, but once I did I couldn’t put it down. We had a great discussion about the book during our meeting last month and I couldn’t wait to continue this series. I ended reading Golden Son fairly quickly as well. I enjoyed both books immensely. I was leaning toward the first one a little more, but once I got to the end of the second it completely blew my mind. I’m still processing it and it’s been two weeks. I cannot wait to see what happens in the third book. And I also heard that they’re in the very early stages of making this series into a TV show. I always have mixed feelings about this – I think how it turns out really depends on who is going to produce it. I also ended up reading Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost, the first book in the Night Huntress series. I put this book on the Books I’d Like to Read in 2019 post I did last month. It’s one that has been on my TBR list for quite some time now. I ended up giving it 3.5 stars. I enjoyed it for the most part, but I found this main character, Cat, just a bit too…meh, I guess. I think it was because she was still fairly young and that influenced her way of thinking quite a bit. And I know her upbringing in the book had influence on her as well, so I tried to be understanding, but it still was annoying at times. I still liked her, but I wanted to like her more. I’m hoping she’ll develop nicely throughout the series. I really liked Bones, and the ending to the first book peaked my interest to where I am looking forward to reading the second book. But I have a few other series I’m interested before returning to this one.
►What do I think I’ll read next?◄
Next up I plan on reading Morning Star by Pierce Brown, the third book in the Red Rising Saga. Although I’m still processing the second book, I NEED TO KNOW what happens in the third. I almost jumped into it right after Golden Son, but I knew I should try to get my book club book read first. I can’t wait! I also still plan on reading the fourth and final book in the Tales From Verania series by T.J. Klune, A Wish Upon the Stars. I’ll probably read it once I finish up Morning Star. I’m hoping to get to Crooked Kingdom in the near future as well.
