Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings. The aim of the post is to select a book, usually upcoming, that you can’t wait to read and discuss it.

This week, I cannot wait for One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake to be released. I have been waiting ever since the first book in the series came out and finished it quickly.

CWW

When I read the first book, I felt like I was reading a prequel for the series. I really missed out on the action and I just know that this book as everything that we been missing. Based on early reviews of some people, it does seem to have everything we want and may even be better than the first, so I am hoping for the best. I just really want this to have all the fights and action that we wanted.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? – August 14th

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Date. The post is used for discussion based on what you are reading, finished reading, or what you’re planning to read.

I am reading Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson. The story is about a girl who has allegedly killed a 3-Month old on the night her mother was babysitting when she was 9. Now 6 years later, Mary needs the truth to come out, but what is the truth? This is the question that lasts in the story. Through the POV of Mary, you keep getting two different stories. Her’s allegedly story, and the story she makes us thinks it true. Which side is true? We truly don’t know and I am guessing we will not know until the very end. However, I do know that something is up. It gets interesting, but I am still waiting for that moment that catches the attention.

Thursday Quotables – August 10th

TQ

Thursday Quotables is a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. You pick a book you’re currently reading a share a quote that you would like to share and share why.

I am currently reading Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan and have almost completed it as well. The quote from this book I’ll share is:

“He forced his fists to unclench. “Look, lady, we’re not going to go all Hunger Games on each other. Isn’t going to happen.”

This quote was spoken by a character, Leo Valdez. If you have read the series, you know the Leo Valdez is usually the one that comes up with these random, funny sayings. I came across this one earlier today and I just thought it was funny that the Hunger Games series was referenced. I just did not expect for the reference to happen at all. I just figured that with everything that was going on for the characters, how would they know about the book, or even have time to read the book? They got plenty of other things to worry about, like Mother Gaea!

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings. The aim of the post is to select a book, usually upcoming, that you can’t wait to read and discuss it.

I have a huge list of books under my “Upcoming Releases” shelf on GoodReads and it always has a “Can’t Wait” scenario with some of the books. The first book I’ve selected is Renegades by Marissa Meyer.

CWW

I have read most books by Marissa Meyer, namely The Lunar Chronicles, and Heartless. When I read Heartless, I quickly became a huge fan. Meyer had a unique way of writing retellings and I actually enjoyed them. When it was announced that Meyer was taking on a super hero/villians and powers type of novel, I couldn’t be more happier. I love novels and stories that involves superheroes and powers. If Meyer was going to write one, I knew it was going to be good. You can be sure that I’ll be pre-ordering this book and waiting for it by the mailbox.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Date. The post is used for discussion based on what you are reading, finished reading, or what you’re planning to read.

Currently, I am reading Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. I have been reading the other books in the series and I needed to something good to read after reading a couple of books that didn’t interest me much. I’ve only just started it and it is already much better than recent books I have read. Before that, I have DNF’d A Court of Thorns and Roses. The book was just not made for me and I had to end it before it got worse for me. I am not sure what to start next after Blood of Olympus, but it might be a mystery, thriller type of a story. I can’t wait to get into it.
