It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #1
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme to share what you recently finished reading, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan on reading next. It’s an awesome way to connect over books and to find out about new books for your TBR! This weekly post is hosted by the wonderful Bookdate.
Hopefully I will be doing this every week and I really hope you all join in the comments. I would really love to hear from you all!
What I Read Last Week!
Vassa in the Night – Sarah Porter
This was the book that was included in the October 2016 Owl Crate (yes, I have only just got around to reading it!). The theme for Octobers box was Once Upon A Dream and this book definitely fit the theme very well!
The whole book felt like a dream! It was inspired by the Russian folktale Vassilissa the Beautiful and it was extraordinarily weird, in a rather wonderful way. If you like a bit of weird in your life, I would definitely recommend Vassa in the Night!
Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1) – Cassandra Clare
With Lord of Shadows coming out tomorrow I am on a mission to finish my reread of Lady Midnight before my preorder arrives on my doorstep! I have half the book to finish and not a lot of time, but I accept the challenge!
I only read this book once previously back when it was released and even though I really really enjoyed it then, I am enjoying it even more now. There are so many things I looked over the first time that I am noticing now. The amazing depth of certain characters is something I am appreciating more this time around, and the way that this world keeps building and building is fantastic.
Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices #2) – Cassandra Clare
This is probably my most anticipated release of the year! I feel like I have been waiting the longest time for the next installment of this series. The way Lady Midnight ended made me so excited to continue with this story, and the wait has only amplified that excitement.
I am hoping to get through this slow and steady, and savor ever moment. However I know myself well enough to know that I will probably have it finished in no time at all!
What are you reading this week? Anyone else super excited for Lord of Shadows too?
