WWW Wednesday #30

WWW Wednesday

Whew, sorry there weren’t many posts last week, between moving apartments and then traveling for the holidays, there was literally NO time to line up posts for the week, so sad! However, my boyfriend likes the drive, which means that I got to just sit and read for our entire holiday driving adventure. I think all told we drove about 22 hours on the long parts, ie not counting around town and to the country for the grandparents and aunts and uncles etc. However, this meant lots of reading for me in addition to a sore butt, haha!

What did you recently finish reading?

Graceling Starflower Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines

Yey, I finished Graceling last week, actually, while driving boxes to my new apartment! Then I finished Starflower and Libriomancer  on the “Great Minnesota Adventure.” I actually started and finished Libriomancer, which was pretty fun ;-) since I had been wanting to read it for a long time :D.

What are you currently reading?

Veil by Aaron Overfield Eye of the World Seraphina by Rachel Hartman Red Madrassa

So now that I’ve made progress on library books that were due, it’s time to get back to some review books! Veil is a behemoth of a review book, as I’ve said before, and I’ve been making slow progress on it due to getting side-tracked. However, now I’m buckling down and determined to get it finished! In addition, I’m still reading the weekly 7-ish chapters of The Eye of the World for our read along (which you’re still welcome to join :D). I also was super excited to get a copy of Seraphina on audio from the library while I’m waiting for my physical copy to arrive since Amazon messed up the order *sigh*. Finally, Red Madrassa is the next tour book (due in February) so I’ve gotten started on the Kindle version of that, though that’ll go faster once I actually join a gym in my new neighborhood and start working out again!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Days of Blood and Starlight Entangled by Nikki Jefford

 

I’m super pumped to inform you all that my library did decide to follow my recommendation and purchase an audio copy of Days of Blood and Starlight and since I requested the purchase, I get first dibs :D. I’m going to be picking that up as soon as I get back into town and that is definitely the next audiobook on the list! Finally, Entangled is in the Netgalley que of review books, so it’s up next for Kindle :D.

What are you reading this week? Have you read any of these books?

  1. This week I’m reading The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress and also Scoundrels by Timothy Zahn. Enjoying them both.

  2. Can’t wait to read what you think of Days of Blood and Starlight and Seraphina! Maybe I’ll suggest a new book, like Seraphina or Days of S & B to my library– having first dibs sounds well-worth it. Happy reading. :)

    • Exactly, and they are all shiny and new then too :D Even though I can’t keep them, it’s still exciting to hold a new book in your hands ;-) And it does the library a favor if you are pretty sure it is a popular book that they should have!

  3. I really need to read Graceling. I liked the cover of Starflower, looks like it might be pretty interesting! Here’s my WWW: http://meganm922.blogspot.com/2013/01/www-wednesdays.html

    • yes you do :D Starflower does have a gorgeous cover, I wish I could have gotten a print version just to look at, haha! Thanks for stopping by, off to check out your post :D

  4. Great books here! Loved Graceling and still need to get to the Laini Taylor books (I am so far behind!) The Eye of the World read a long eh? Maybe that is how I start that monster book… My WWW is here:

    • I completely understand feeling behind, I still haven’t read so many of the big 2011 and 2012 books and I really want to! Yes, join our read along! We are about 200 pages in now, but you can totally still catch up or go at your own pace and respond to the previous week’s questions, I’ll go back and discuss with you whenever you get to them :D

    • Definitely interesting ;-) And impressive since it’s so huge haha! Thanks for stopping by! off to check out your books this week :D

  5. So happy that you got Seraphina! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it. I hope you love it, I know I did. xD

    • I’m pumped! Though now I have to find time to read it D: Just need to get through another two review books and I’ll feel better and take a break for fun books ;-)

  6. Looking forward to your Days of Blood review :)

  7. I’m so envious about your ability to be able to read in a moving car! I get motion sick so I can never maximize that time. Luckily though I can do audiobooks for when I am alone in the car so that is something.

    I also loved beyond loved the audio of Days of Blood and Starlight so I think that you are in for a real treat there. I was shattered by this one and am DYING for the next book. I need to know what happens next!

    My WWW Wednesday can be found here.

    • I know, I feel so lucky! I think it’s because my parents trained me from an early age ;-) Haha, I totally don’t turn off my audiobooks when my boyfriend is in the car, gotta maximize my audiobook time! And then we end up talking about the book anyway which is fun because normally he doesn’t ask about the books I’m reading :D

  8. Fantastic books. Love the cover of Veil, it looks really interesting. I really want to read the Laini Taylor books, but haven’t picked up book 1 yet. Soon hopefully. Happy reading!
