I did damn well in my opinion considering that I read all of the books I had planned to read.

And some..

This is my read- list for the last ten days. I had planned to read 6 of them, and just finished the last one on me TBR list.

I am in the middle of making a new list. But thought I would make sense to post what I read, with a short comment on each book. 

 

Apparently I like doing lists and accounts on books... well I do like lists of anything really, I am that much of a nerd apparently, which still surprises me. I was supposed to be the rebel, you know. Guess my undercover geek might not be as undercover as I hoped.

 

Back to my shelved list

 

  •   Joni, Underway - Jonathan Harrow,Kelly Oram 
  • This is the absolute favourite of the bunch. In fact it's on my favourites of all times list. Joni, Underway resonated with something deep within me. Incredibly beautiful book. 4.5Stars

  Playing with Fire (Hot In Chicago series Book 2) - Kate Meader  

Sizzling and cute romance about the hottest men in town and the fiercest firefighter, ever. 

 

  His Pretend Girl (An Emerald City Novella) - Sofia Grey  

I stumbled over this on kindleunlimted. It's quite well written, but the storyline is more or less a string of cliches. 2.5Stars

 

  Seduction's Kiss (The Allure Chronicles) - Alyssa Rose Ivy  

I liked the world building, the character building is done quite well in this short span but I felt like this might be too much of the usual PNR dramas. So I am not sure if I will read more of the series. 3Stars

 

  Here All Along (The Kelly Brothers Book 7) - Crista McHugh  

A wonderful end to a great series. Story of besties becoming more. McHugh absolutely shines with the character building.I just wish there would be more to come in the series! 4Stars

 

  Center Ice (Entangled Crush) (Corrigan Falls Raiders) - Cate Cameron  

I am not sure how or why, but I am kinda hooked by Entangled Crush. The first book in the Corrigan Falls Raiders series gave me exactly what I expected. A cute and fluffy fix. Though there were bits that dug deeper, I wish that somehow there would have been more of that. It's rather predictable but a fun read. 3.5Stars

 

  Magic Shifts (Kate Daniels) - Ilona Andrews  

Well written as always. But sadly the action scenes did overshadow every other aspect of this book.

I listened to the audio of this and in my opinion Renee Raudman can't do any wrong. It's the best way to enjoy an Ilona Andrews novel, seriously. Except for a tad little problem, there was no whispersync available for this instalment. Besides the fact, that I do get a discount on buying both the ebook and the audiobook with that feature, I love it for that fact that I can switch between the audio and ebook seamlessly. Since I didn't get that option I decided to only get the audiobook, which meant it took me several days to finish this.

  Aimee and the Heartthrob (Entangled Crush) (Backstage Pass) - Ophelia London  

Cute and all, but also a lot of been there done that. Very well written mind you! I already got the next book in the series.. so my Entangled Crush obsession's still going strong.

3.5 Stars

 

  A History of Glitter and Blood - Hannah Moskowitz  

This is a book one is either going to love to bits or not. I wish I would be in the former group, because I think it's quite clever. But I really struggled through this one, mainly because I didn't like the writing style at all. Sadly just not for me. 1.5 Stars

 

  The Undying Legion: Crown & Key - Clay and Susan Griffith  

Extremely well written: Great action, good character building & fab steampunk gadgets but it does sadly have second book syndrome. It did build up my expectations for the next book and I shall be reading it very soon. 3.5Stars

 

I shall post my TBR for the coming week this evening..

And that's it for my mememe this week.

 

Any books you read this week that you feel are the bomb?

What to read next?

Trying to be good, I made a Reading List for this week... 

And I even read 2 books out of it, already. Yeay! *pats herself on the back*

I should really finished those two book I am "currently"(not really) reading...buuuuuuuuut.. well.. I don't see it happening right now.

 

So the big question is what do I read next?

Maybe this list thing isn't working after all?

*Frowns*

On my Reading List for this Week
Swimming to Tokyo - Brenda St. John Brown
Talon - Julie Kagawa
The Clockwork Dagger - Beth Cato
Servants of the Storm - Delilah S. Dawson
Brutal Precious - Sara Wolf

I got finally a little more time to read!! *queue happy dance* 

I also got quite a few ARCs for September and October lined up, loads of Books on my TBR that I can't wait to read, am totally behind with writing reviews and honestly feel out of touch with my review/book blog/ book friends. 

So being me- the list-making scientist- I decided to make one of those beloved lists, calculated if I read two ARCs a week and review four books (included the two ARCs) I should be totally and utterly up to date by September. Well, that's the theory, let's hope I can put it into praxis. 

So here is my Reading List for Week 33. 

 

BTW can you believe its Week 33 already?! Where has 2014 gone?! 

*scrambles to take advantage of some reading time*
