Currently reading

Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes, Michelle RowenRebel Spring (Falling Kingdoms #2) by Morgan Rhodes, Michelle Rowen

Continuing this book and series with the (really awesome) Falling Kingdoms Fantasy League group. This week we covered chapters 16 – 20. Looking forward to more fun predictions and discussions over the course of the next few weeks!


The Black Witch by Laurie ForestThe Black Witch (The Black Witch #1) by Laurie Forest

I was able to get a few more chapters read in The Black Witch this week. This story is well written and developing nicely! I am really excited to focus more on this book this week. There has been a lot of recent controversy over this book, and so far from my own experience and research, this controversy has been completely misrepresented and unwarranted.


The Copper Promise by Jen WilliamsThe Copper Promise (The Copper Cat #1) by Jen Williams

I continued reading The Copper Promise with a fellow GR friend and reviewer (Follow her Instagram @haileesbooksandstuff). I was really only able to get maybe 2 more chapter through this because Lord of Shadows monopolized my reading time this week. But still a lot of snark, a lot of brutal stuff, and I’m getting major Indiana Jones vibes … so basically ALL GREAT THINGS! I am very much looking forward to reading more of this story over the following week.


Finished Reading

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra ClareLord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices #2) by Cassandra Clare

NO BIG DEAL … ONLY MY MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2017 and honestly absolutely worth the hype – although me and Cassandra Clare need to have words about that ending!

One thing I know I am going to get when reading A CC book is dynamic easy to love characters, awesome action scenes, and heart wrenching moments! Boy did this book deliver … especially on the “heart-wrenching” bit. From the very beginning, this book was one of the most beautifully painful reads of the year and I loved it! I mean the first 8 words on the inner cover just about killed me …

“Would you trade your soulmate for your soul?”

I mean crap! tears already! This book was a part of my soul from the very beginning! Here are a few of my Goodreads updates on this book so you can see what I mean:

2.36% “I’ve already teared up 3 times … this is not a good sign.”

 8.75% “I have already experienced every emotion there is and I’m only on chapter 4!”

 16.53% “OMG MY HEART”

27.78% “The tension in my chest … the one that feels like my heart is being ripped from it … has not relaxed at all since I started this book!

31.94% “Im going to need to lay on the floor for a week and contemplate the meaning of life after this book NO LIE”

64.58% “I think that makes 10 times I have shed tears reading this book ….keep in mind I am an emotional wreck so it’s not that surprising.”

Yep … you get the idea! Total emotional destruction and 100% worth the pain! I am a little irked that this book ended on a MAJOR CLIFFHANGER and Clare will not be releasing the conclusion of this story until 2019 … but it will most likely take me that long to pick up the broken pieces of my soul and put them back together just in time to be destroyed again I’m sure.

I have not yet gotten around to writing a review for this book – I feel like the books that are closest to my soul are the hardest ones to write about – but it is an overwhelming 5/5 stars!


Weekly Outlook

I feel like over the past month my weeks have been crazy unproductive! I usually read so many more books than I have of late. I feel like week after week I’m just posting the same post here because I have made no progress. Ugh sorry.

This next week I will be finishing up a few things on my Currently Reading list and hopefully getting some more reviews written and posted!

I’m heading to the lake for a family camping trip this weekend! I would like to think I will have tons of time to relax and read … but unfortunately it never seems to work out that way. Maybe this time?

As always, I wish everyone a happy and enjoyable week!
