What are you currently reading?
- The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh – physical book
- Goliath (Leviathan, #3) by Scott Westerfeld – audiobook
I’m finally almost done with Goliath. I’ve only got about an hour left to listen to and I can’t wait to see how this series ends.
I’ve only barely begun The Blinds but I’m enjoying it so far. I really like the writing style and the characters. This seems like it’s going to be a really interesting read. The setting is what really sets it apart from other books that I’ve read.
What did you recently finish reading?
- Zodiac (Zodiac, #1) by Romina Russell – 4/5 stars, Hype or Like Friday BOTM
- Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1) by Morgan Rhodes – 3/5 stars
I really enjoyed Zodiac! The world building in this book is truly phenomenal. I haven’t heard a whole lot people talk about this series so I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, the story is fast-paced, the writing is good, and as I mentioned, the world building is awesome. I definitely plan to continue with this series and pick up the sequel next month.
Falling Kingdoms was a bit of a letdown. I think it was about 50 pages longer than what it needed to be and could use a bit of editing. I think the overall story was really interesting and enjoyed the different points of view. However, the romance seemed a bit forced and all of the male characters just come across as terrible people. I do plan to continue with this series, if only to see if it gets better with the next book.
What do you think you’ll read next?
- Ash and Quill (The Great Library, #3) by Rachel Caine
- Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang
I’m just really excited to get to both of these books. I want to kick myself for putting off picking up Ash and Quill for so long because that cliffhanger in the previous book has left me dying to see what happens next!
