What I am currently reading and my progress:
1. The Obsidian Blade by Pete Hautman- Pete describes this as part sci-fi, part adventure, part historical, part futuristic. The reviews are coming in as this is a good one. I hope I will concur. I've barely started it, I'm only on around page 35.
2. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa-This is the first book in the Iron Fey series which is hot, hot, hot in my library. I am reading it to evaluate if I want to include it in my Nifty Fifty cart of special books. So far so good but I'm only on the 2nd chapter.
What I am listening to:
-The Shanghai Girls by Lisa See, read by Janet Song. I am mesmerized.
What I've recently finished:
1. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzgerald I half listened, half read this book at break neck speed. A paranormal romance that had me on the edge of my seat.
2. Soldier Bear by Bib Tak. Translated from Dutch, this book won the 2012 Batchelor Award for translated works. It is a Junior book and it really wasn't a favorite.
3. Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay. Written in verse, this coming-of-age story has a lot going for it.
What I hope to read next:
I have three library books piled up next to my bed and i want to read them before I have to return them:
-The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour. I read a not-so-great review after reading a few good ones which has caused me to pause. Hmm.m.m.
-Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. "When Aria, a sheltered and fragile Dweller, is exiled from her home in Reverie, she must face The Death Shop, a land filled with cannibals and dangerous energy storms, and her only hope for staying alive depends on Outsider Perry, a savage hunter" Sounds ominous, doesn't it?
-The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen. This is my next audiobook.
-The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. This is my next book club selection and I must pick it up from Margaret G-F as I am only 31st in line at the public library. Ha!
