Friday Reading Update #9

What I read:

  • Out for Blood by Alyxandra Harvey: The third book in the Drake Chronicles; follows Quinn Drake and Hunter, a student from Helios-Ra. Quinn is charming, but somehow all Drake brothers narrative feel the same, they are just attracted to different girls. I really liked Hunter and the ins and outs of the vampire hunter school.
  • The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson (re-read): If there were soul-books, The Bermudez Triangle will definitely be one of mine.
  • Montana Sky by Nora Roberts: Review here.
  • Kiss & Blog by Alyson Noel: Review to come.

Currently reading:

  • Dance to the Piper by Nora Roberts
  • The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle: After watching the BBC 21st-century serialization, I read Sherlock Holmes books for the characters.

Put on hold:

  • Little Men at 51%
  • Pride and Prejudice at Chapter 33
  • 50 Literature Ideas You Really Need to Know at 57%
  • Work: A Story of Experience at 44%

What I got this week:

  • 1916: A Novel of the Irish Rebellion by Morgan Llywelyn: Since I name Ireland as one of my favorite countries, I thought I should educate myself about its culture and history.
  • Pavilion of Women by Pearl S. Buck: My first Kindle Deal des Tages purchase and I feel as content as a satisfied cat. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a few months now, but it was expensive, even at Kindle standard. Now I got it for 1.69 EUR :)

Reading Update

What I read:

  • Audrey,  Wait!  by Robin Benway
  • (added around 7 PM): Finished the first book in the Drake Chronicles. I got the bind-up for the first three books as ebook. I can’t keep the Drake brothers apart yet. Nicholas is the youngest (the sexy one) brother and next-to-youngest sibling. Logan is a year older. Sebastian is the eldest. The rest… ummm, there are Quinn, Duncan, Conner and one more boy.  [Edit: Marcus] I’m really, really interested in reading more of Lucy and Nicholas, but each Drake brother takes one book to play a major part in. (Nicholas’ is already gone without being a narrator ’cause Lucy already was.)

What I am waiting for to arrive on my doorstep:

  • The Rising by K. Armstrong, the one I’d pre-ordered months ago. This means that now I can start re-reading The Gathering to complete the trilogy.
  • Misguided Angel & Lost in Time by M. de la Cruz – I am also waiting for them so I can finish the series. I already have the final book, Gates of Paradise. I could have picked them up at the book store yesterday but then I ordered I Am Number Four and Beautiful Days, so I am picking them all up probably on Tuesday or Wednesday.

What I am going to read now:
Probably not The Gathering right away. Still not sure. I started reading Audrey, Wait! yesterday because it was on my eReader and I thought, why not?
