So apparently I've been in one of my I'm-just-going-to-watch-TV-instead-of-reading-a-book moods, because up until a few days ago, I hadn't touched a book all week. I blame this on a few things: Number one, I was busy and using my brain to read felt like a huge deal and I wasn't into the idea of it, and Two: I'd been plowing through a lot of books and I think I burned out a little. Either way, I've made a nice recovery the last few days and this was helped by really good books.
Honestly? I completely imagine you all groaning and clicking the red X every time I mention the Vampire Academy series because it's all I talk about, but I can't help it this time! I finally gave in and read Bloodlines by Richelle Mead this week, which is a companion book to the VA series. I'd put off reading it because, while every book in the VA series was out when I started reading them, this book is brand spanking new and I knew I'd have to wait for the next one. And I also knew what the last line of this book was and understood that I would be in physical pain if I read it now and had to wait until summer 2012 to read the next book. But I'm a masochist, so I read it anyway.
Fantastic. Just fantastic. I was worried that I wouldn't enjoy this book as much because I was never a huge fan of Adrian in the original series and thought I'd be bored with him, but not so! I mean, sure every time I saw the name Belikov, I giggled and Adrian isn't giggleworthy for me, but it's still very, very good. Can't wait until The Golden Lily comes out next summer.
Last night I sat down to read the first few chapters of Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick just to see what it was about and whether I should be excited to read it. I. Read. The. Whole. Thing. Granted, I got very little sleep last night, but still. I'm pretty interested in the whole nephilim/angels thing being a big fan of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare but I haven't actually read that many books about them. This was good. Yes, it's very Twlight-esque, and some things the main character's best friend did made me want to slap her very hard, but in the end, I read the whole damn thing in one sitting. That says something. Also, this book probably has one of the most kick ass covers I've seen in a along time. And of course the next book in the series, Cresendo, doesn't come out for another year. *forehead slap*
Soooo, what are you reading?
