What did I finish reading?
Boundless (Unearthly #3) by Cynthia Hand 5/5 (review)
The finale in the Unearthly series, Boundless wonderfully ties things up for us. Clara's growing and learning the true extent of her abilities, as well as how to be a better person for the people in her life.
The Guardian (Home to Hickory Hollow #3) by Beverly Lewis 4/5 (review)
The third in the Home to Hickory Hollow series, The Guardian is a tale about rediscovering love in God and ourselves.
What am I currently reading?
I'm currently at the beginning of chapter six (10% through.) Well, what can I say without people jumping down my throat? I can truly see how people can seriously love this series, but perhaps it's not for me? Currently I'm moving at a slow pace on the book because it seems that I can only take it in one chapter at a time. Perhaps I feel like the author is trying too hard to be descriptive, but it can be a bit much for me. Some things that only need to be said in one sentence, takes up an entire page (I don't want to get into the constant repetition of words) and it's taking forever to get a point across. I also find Juliette very weak and depressing, currently, and her love of Adam is getting on my nerves. I DO, however, love Kenji :) I wish this book were about him. Maybe it's because of the Young Adult genre (although there are TOOOOONS of YA books I absolutely love) but with this book I feel like saying, "I'm too old for this s#!*" I'm considering stopping the book altogether and giving it back to the library so whoever's in line next can enjoy it. Unless someone (aka YOU) can persuade me otherwise and assure me that the book gets better as it goes on... I might consider finishing it since it isn't due until the 8th.
I LOVE this series, which is saying something because I've only read the first book of the series so far (when I got my first kindle last year and first discovered my library's online book lending system.) I'm currently 6% through this galley that is expected to be published on March 5th, and I love it! I'm looking forward of getting through this book because I'm certainly going to seek out #2-4 of the series. Each book is a new mystery, so I feel that it's okay to read out of sequence a bit. I've never really been into archaeology, but this series definitely piques my interest!
What am I planning on reading next?
I CAN'T WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIT!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
Hikikomori and the Rental Sister by Jeff Backhaus
I was looking at my bookcase and found this, remembering that I received the galley a while ago and forgot all about it (woops!!!) I still want to read it, despite it already being published last month.
I have this galley all set to read on my Kindle :D I like mythology, and I've been wanting to read some of this authors work (The Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series are still on my to-read list.) This should be fun!
Murder, She Wrote: Domestic Malice (Murder She Wrote #38) by Donald Baine
I've read and loved a few of the other Murder She Wrote book in the series, so when I found this on the "New" shelf in my library, I snatched it up. I'm on my last renewal for this, so I have to read it within the month, lol!
