2015 Reading Challenge {Week Four}

Happy Reading Challenge Check In Day, everyone!  Tuesday might now be my most favorite day of the week because I love sharing all of my books with you.  I finished up Gail Carriger’s Etiquette and Espionage last Friday, and despite my initial meh reaction, I did end up enjoying the story.  Did I enjoy it enough to pick up the next book in the series?  Ehhhhhhhh.  I’m thinking about it.  🙂  BUT, it was a fun, fast paced story, with a strong and young female lead.  This is definitely a book I will recommend to my teenage patrons at the library. 

Not only do I post my reading check in here, but I also do a Tuesday check in with my mom group on Facebook.  It was during one of those check ins that I was told about Anne Bishop’s Daughter of the Blood in the Black Jewels trilogy.

{You probably can’t tell, but there is snow outside.  This is me being clever and showing you what I’m doing on this snowy day.}

This book is… interesting.  I love Fantasy and Science Fiction, but this book is dark and the characters are so majorly flawed it hurts… and yet I CANNOT put it down.  Go figure.  I haven’t decided where I’m going to put this book on my list of 50 yet. {Maybe trilogy? Maybe magic?}  I’ll figure it out after I finish.

It was fabulous.  Great discussion, Swedish meatballs, and some new books in my “to read” queue.  Curious what we talked about in our meeting?  Here’s a list of the books, authors, and series that were mentioned:

– I Work in a Public Library
– Twilight/50 Shades
– His Fair Assassin Trilogy
– Fever series
– JR Ward
– And Then There were None (not 100 years old)
– Shadowlands series (?)
– Cruel Beauty
– a Rumpelstiltskin book that has yet to be published
– Etiquette and Espionage
– Vampire Academy/Bloodlines
– Poison Study/ Study trilogy

What did you read this past week?  Leave me a comment and tell me all about it.
