I’m getting through Crown of Midnight slowly but surely and I’m really enjoying it. I’m loving the dynamic between Celaena, Chaol and Dorian and their love triangle that’s not much of a love triangle, it’s kind of unclear what’s going to happen.
I’m also still reading Circus of the Damned by Laurell K. Hamilton but old books are taking a back burner to new books.
I read a grand total of eight books in the past week.
I’ve recently finished loads of books – the bank holiday weekend was a weekend of relaxing and blitzing through several books. First up was Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson, I wasn’t planning on reading this first but my partner read it and I wanted us to have a book both of us could talk about. You can find my review for Steelheart here, it’s a mash-up kind of book but very good regardless.
Second was Priest by Sierra Simone – finally! It was superb and took me about 3 hours to blitz through. What I loved most about this book was that it was told primarily from Tyler Bell’s point of view which is rare in a romance book – predominantly they’re told from the female point of view with the occasional chapter or two from the males. This book being what it is – it wouldn’t have made sense at all to have told it from Poppy’s POV and you can find my review for Priest here.
I also read a book by the guys from the TV show QI – 1,227 QI Facts That Will Blow Your Socks Off. I wouldn’t say it blew my socks off but some of those facts were amazing and were things I didn’t know about at all, it was good to read it. It only took me about an hour maybe an hour and a half to finish.
I also finished Shuttergirl by C. D. Reiss which I thought was amazing, again it contained some taboo subject matter much like Priest but it was written and explained well and I wasn’t overly put off by it – I thought that the writing style was perfect for the setting and you can find my review here.
I also blitzed through the Markham Hall Series bundle – though I bought them all individually and then realised that there was a bundle of the whole series. It includes The Awakening of Ivy Leavold, The Education of Ivy Leavold, The Punishment of Ivy Leavold and The Reclaiming of Ivy leavold. I enjoyed it but I was thrown off by the modernised phraseology and words that were used as this was supposed to be a Regency romance series – there were lots of modern terms that just didn’t sit right with the surrounding storylines.
Provided I finish Crown of Midnight I’ll be reading Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas in preparation for the release of Queen of Shadows next week.
I might read The Bourbon Kings but I don’t wanna – if I read it now, I’ll have to wait at least a year for the next book and that is just depressing. I hate waiting, but on the flip side I love the suspense of having to wait for a prolonged period of time to read the next installment.
