Happy Monday ya'll! Here is a current round-up of what I am reading RIGHT NOW:
This is book 2 in the Firebird Series. I read (inhaled) the first book and then took an unexplicable break from the series. I found book 2 through Overdrive on Friday and was happily reading away this weekend. I am just getting started, but this book does a good job of refreshing where we left off. I was grateful for this, but could see how some readers might not appreciate it.
Short synopsis: the Firebird allows for travel between dimensions, where alternate versions of you and the people you know live. Margueritte has to travel to find Paul and stop Triad from exploiting the technology.
I found this book based on a recommendation from folks on Twitter. It is a MG novel that was given as a suggestion when I asked for mysteries. I'm only a chapter in, but so far so good. I haven't been reading much MG lately, and hope this will help to break me out of my slump. I wasn't expecting it to be set so far in the past, but am curious to see how it goes. The MC works in an apothecary and seems to be setting up for some great adventure.
I picked up this book after seeing it on a list of books to read after Thirteen Reasons Why. I found the audio version through Overdrive and it has been a good pick so far, but as I've noticed with other serious/sad pieces, listening to them makes for a much more in depth experience. You can't gloss over the sadness or the hurt like you can when you are physically reading; when you are listening to it, the narrator has total control over your experience. And this one has had some TOUGH moments, and I'm only about a 1/3 of the way through it. Overall, I'd recommend, but with some warnings.
So, there you have it. My current reads. Happy Monday everyone!
