Read this Week:

Yayay, some reading actually happened this week. So I read Harmony Nice’s book in practically a day, I LOVED it. 5/5 for sure.  I decided to pick up The Gilded Wolves on audio, I really didn’t like it you guys, I gave it 2/5 stars. I enjoyed the characters and their relationships to each other but I didn’t like the plot, setting or magic system.

Currently Reading:

I swear I am finishing this book tonight okay??

Read this Week:

Monument 14 (Monument 14, #1) Searching for Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles, #2) Check, Please!: #Hockey, Vol. 1 Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle #2)

The Fourth Horseman The Simple Art of Flying The Chaos of Stars A Fierce and Subtle Poison A Reaper at the Gates (An Ember in the Ashes, #3)

Wow, between my week off and Dewey’s readathon, I really read! 10 books wow! Monument 14 was an interesting apocalyptic reader that ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I’ll be looking into the next book soon. Searching for Dragons was a cute second book in a series I’ve been meaning to read forever – because dragons! Check Please! was so darn cute so I’ll be looking forward to the next one. Mother Knows Best was such a great back story to Mother Gothel, I loved how it tied into the previous books as well. Godsgrave was so long, but very good and bloody… so much blood… The Fourth Horsemen literally prevented an apocalypse and I really enjoyed the story. The Chaos of Stars is Egyptian mythology in modern times and I like how everything played out. A Fierce and Subtle Poison was an amazing mystery with some paranormal elements added in. I’ll have to look into the next book by the author. Reaper at the Gates I thought would be a conclusion to the series, but boy was I wrong… definitely more fodder for this crazy bloody world that Tahir has built.

Currently Reading:

Caterpillar Summer A Perfect Blood (The Hollows, #10)
