2015 Reading Challenge {Week Seven}

Happy Tuesday everyone!  If you’re on the east coast, I hope you’re surviving all of the snow.  I swear I am so over the winter.  How much longer til Spring??

I sat down and finished Anne Bishop’s Heir to the Shadows this past week.  I actually really enjoyed it and am excited to finish the trilogy.  However, before I begin Queen of the Darkness, I had to start Richelle Mead’s The Ruby Circle.  

Last week I wrote about The Arcana Chronicles being my second favorite YA series.  Well, Vampire Academy is my all time favorite!  I loved Rose and her kick ass personality.  She is a strong female character that knows how to fight and also how to show love, both great qualities for teens {and adults} to read about.  The Ruby Circle is book 6 in the Bloodlines series, a spinoff of Vampire Academy.  I have really enjoyed reading about Sydney and Adrian, about how much they have grown as characters, ad well as the love they share for each other.  If you are a fan of non sparkly vampires, these are two series that shouldn’t be missed.


My IKEA book club with no name met at Starbucks this past Sunday.  {Yeah. I know.}  I legit love this book club.  We just sit and chill for a couple of hours and discuss books.  There were three of us in attendance and we all sort of read the same stuff {although I read more romance and the other ladies read more YA}.  Here’s a quick rundown of the books/topics that were discussed over lattes:

  1. I wish I was in a book club, I am SO SO jealous!! I am reading Wild, Requiem (3rd in a series) and Hourglass Squared (my fun read)! I am loving having more than 1 book going at a time, this is the first time I have done this and it keeps things fresh! I’m over the Winter with you as well–have a great week lady and let’s dream of the Spring!!
