Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard

If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

It is 1922, and London is tense. Ex-servicemen are disillusioned; the out-of-work and the hungry are demanding change. And in South London, in a genteel Camberwell villa—a large, silent house now bereft of brothers, husband, and even servants—life is about to be transformed, as impoverished widow Mrs. Wray and her spinster daughter, Frances, are obliged to take in lodgers.

With the arrival of Lilian and Leonard Barber, a modern young couple of the “clerk class,” the routines of the house will be shaken up in unexpected ways. Little do the Wrays know just how profoundly their new tenants will alter the course of Frances’s life—or, as passions mount and frustration gathers, how far-reaching, and how devastating, the disturbances will be.

I actually have more books that are currently on my Currently Reading list but these seems to top it all for now. I’m listening to The Paying Guests in audiobook because I am loving that medium right now and I have a copy of Glass Sword on my Scribd so I’m reading that as well. It hasn’t been that much when it comes to reading but I’m also super glad that I’m finally enjoying the heck out of it already.

Now– if only I can stop procrastinating and actually write posts more frequently.

Spark of Fire (The Phoenix Cycle #1) by Grace Anthony

Ember Moore, a Reaper, just wants to get through high school. She isn’t ready to save the world.

The Reapers are the police of the kindred races. They keep peace and law under the command of the Spirit Assembly. Until a dangerous cult, sworn to resurrect the last Phoenix, rises up to remove all opposition to their goal.

When a shocking betrayal rips Ember’s family apart, Ember, her brother Liam, and a mysterious girl named Billie must turn to their sworn enemy for protection. An unexpected alliance will be forged. And a dangerous path will chosen.

Will Ember and the people close to her survive the coming war?

Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #1) by Laurell K. Hamilton

Anita Blake is small, dark, and dangerous. Her turf is the city of St. Louis. Her job: re-animating the dead and killing the undead who take things too far. But when the city’s most powerful vampire asks her to solve a series of vicious slayings, Anita must confront her greatest fear—her undeniable attraction to master vampire Jean-Claude, one of the creatures she is sworn to destroy…

This is the amazing part. I’ve already finished two books in the last three days when I’ve never been in the mood to read in the last couple of months. Cause for celebration?

I’ve read Spark of Fire, as mentioned above, and it’s another one I can cross off of my ARCs that I have yet to slowly work on. It was a fun read, really short, albeit with its minor flaws, but overall, it was enjoyable 🙂 Guilty Pleasures on the other hand was an exciting surprise! I’ve heard of this series before, especially as a recommendation when it comes to horror/supernatural/romance stuff. Boyy was I glad that I read this, it was soo fun! It made me miss the good old days when I used to be obsessed with everything vampire. Now, about 80+ more books to go lol.

 

Next read:

intheshadeoftheblossomtree

In the high-stakes world of international gambling, where success is measured by the roll of a dice or the spin of a roulette wheel, the lives of two women will become entwined in ways neither could have imagined.

Privileged party-girl Savannah Hudson has everything she’s ever wanted – apart from the love of her cold and distant father, Michael. A self-made casino mogul in Las Vegas, he has little time for his daughter when competing with the other empires that line the famous strip.

Lois, a tough, ruthlessly ambitious ex-cop, runs the security business of Michael’s greatest rival. She’s fought hard for everything she has in life and no one has been able to halt her rise through the glamour and wealth of the casinos . . . not even her young daughter.

As the lines between their lives become ever more blurred, will the two women realize what truly matters before the morally corrupt world of gambling consumes them forever?

This is just something I saw on my Libby app before but I already started it and I was enjoying it anyways so I refuse to remove it from my Currently Reading pile until I actually finish reading it. Nothing bad can happen right? I’m crossing my fingers that this is at least decent 🙂


 

Not a lot right? Or maybe I’m just getting excited about reading again. I’m trying not to outdo myself and burn out because this is a good thing. Does anybody know of looooong book series that I can start on? Don’t really care what genre it is because I read almost everything. Please recommend some to me! Let’s chat 😛

 

Lots of love,
