Sharing my thoughts on this weeks’ reads

heartdivider1

Whew!  Yesterday was a craaazy day for me.  What with the rain and me traipsing around USC for the LA Times Festival of Books – it was pouring people!  Anyway, I’m still alive which means I am not a witch! XD

The last couple of weeks has been pretty okay, reading wise.  I did really well in finishing a few books that were disappointments, but I had have a hard time following through on the books I listed on my TBR for a certain challenge!  Now, it’s almost mid-month and I am still, STILL not able to finish at least 1 of the 6 books I planned to read! BAAAAHHH. #epicfailureasareader

ihrya-currently-reading-listcrowns-game-evelyn-skyeTHE CROWNS GAME by Evelyn Skye (Young Adult Fantasy) – I’m only a few pages in since a few days ago because I can’t seem to keep my eyes open.  And it’s not because the book is boring, but I’m just really exhausted!  Plus, it’s my birthday week, so…. am I forgiven?

THE ASSASSIN’S BLADE by Sarah J. Maas (Young Adult Fantasy) – Eeeep I KNOW!  I just finished reading novella #1 and I love Sam and Celaena’s relationship!  I mean, I am a sucker for the love at first hate type of trope so I’m excited to read more!

girl-from-everywhere-heidi-heiligTHE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE by Heidi Heilig (Young Adult Fantasy) – This was a surprise for me because I have not heard any buzz about this book.  However, the title really called to me so I purchased this from audible.  It was surprisingly good and I enjoyed reading it.  Looking forward to book number 2!

scandal-takes-the-stage-eva-leighSCANDAL TAKES THE STAGE by Eva Leigh (Historical Romance) – I finally finished this book!  It has been on my on-hold shelf for almost a year now!  Eeeep!  This time, I picked the audiobook version and I was able to finish it!  Unfortunately, this was a disappointing read for me.

FORTUNE FAVORS THE WICKEDfortune-favors-wicked-theresa-romain by Theresa Romain (Historical Romance) – Finished my first ever Theresa Romain book…WHAT?!  Yep, I haven’t read a single Theresa Romain book ever!  I enjoyed this book but it didn’t wow me as much as I hoped I would!

winner's-kiss-marie-rutkoskiTHE WINNER’S KISS by Marie Rutkoski (Young Adult Fantasy) – OMG DISAPPOINTED!  I just finished this book today and I am just….AAAAHHH I don’t know what to say because I LOVE the first 2 books of the series!!

name-of-wind-patrick-rothfussTHE NAME OF THE WIND by Patrick Rothfuss (Young Adult Fantasy) – At the recommendation of Annika @ Hiding Books, I borrowed the audiobook from the library.  Unfortunately, I could not follow the story at all.  I’m planning to check out the physical book so I can read it instead.

STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff (Young Adult Steampunk Fantasy) – At this moment, I have other pressing books that I need to read ASAP so I am putting this book on hold for now.

ihrya-linelady-midnight-cassandra-clareLADY MIDNIGHT by Cassandra Clare (Young Adult Urban Fantasy) – I believe I’m in Chapter 15-ish (?) and I’m not feeling it!  Plus, this book is a MONSTER!  I mean, it’s HUGE!  And I just can’t… I don’t know… umphhfftt.  I had it signed yesterday, though.

art-of-taming-a-rake-nicole-jordanTHE ART OF TAMING A RAKE by Nicole Jordan (Historical Romance) – This is another book I am putting on hold for now due to the amount of books that I have to read ASAP.  Eeep!  I’m getting buried alive BY BOOKS!!

ihrya-lets-discuss

How has your week been?  Any new books I should know about?  Any book from the on-hold pile I should read ASAP?  Are you like me who can’t seem to follow a list?!  Any tips? Tricks? Suggestions?  Honestly, I’d take any suggestion right now!
