What are you currently reading?
I started Shiver today and while I’m only a few chapters in I’m totally hooked on this isolated mystery. The setting is perfect and I’m eagerly anticipating all the twists and turns that lay ahead of me.
I’m 40% through with No One Knows You’re Here but I put it down to focus on my Polarthon reads this week. This is a gruesome serial killer crime novel but it does lack focus. The majority of the story is all about our main character, a crime writer, and her personal life but there are a few interesting chapters from the killers perspective. I am intrigued and I can’t wait to see how this book continues and wraps up.
The time I spend every day picking up my kids from school I have been reading Last Duke Standing. This is my last blog tour review book this month and I should have it done this week or early next week. So far it’s not my favorite historical fiction but I do really love our hero and heroine together and their chemistry and interactions are delightful to read.
What have you recently finished reading?
Through the Woods is a really fun horror short story graphic novel with incredible art. I really loved this one and it was an easy five stars.
The Lightening Thief was my first read for Polarthon. I loved the Greek mythology aspect but I didn’t love certain parts of the story. I gave it four stars.
Once Upon a Broken Heart was incredible. I think I previously called it a fairytale retelling but I don’t know if that is technically what this is. It is more like it is set in the world of fairytales and it was so much fun spotting different fairytales. The whole story blew me away and I actually gasped out loud at one part. The ending was fantastic and I love how it set up future books. I will probably be rereading this right before the sequel comes out at the end of the year because I loved it so much. This was obviously five stars and will definitely be in my top books of the year.
I was surprised by how much I loved Tokyo Ghoul vol. 1. The fact that the main character is such a ferocious reader and Kafka’s metamorphosis was continuously referenced was not what I was expecting. This is a horror manga so it was pretty grisly at times. Five stars.
What do you think you will read next?
This is my next book for Polarthon and one that I’m excited to get to since everyone raves about it so much.
Way out in the furthest part of the known world, a tiny stronghold exists all on its own, cut off from the rest of human-kin by monsters that lurk beneath the Snow Sea.
There, a little boy called Ash waits for the return of his parents, singing a forbidden lullaby to remind him of them… and doing his best to avoid his very, VERY grumpy yeti guardian, Tobu.
But life is about to get a whole lot more crazy-adventurous for Ash.
When a brave rescue attempt reveals he has amazing magical powers, he’s whisked aboard the Frostheart, a sleigh packed full of daring explorers who could use his help. But can they help him find his family . . . ?
