What am I reading:

Well, I have finished Override by Heather Anastasiu. I enjoyed that so much better. I am almost finished with World War Z, I will actually be finishing that up after I do some math problems. (Which I will get back to after finishing this post.) So this week's reads will be Shutdown by Heather Anastasiu, and Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon. I will be participating in the blog tour for Shutdown, and my stop will be Friday. I kind of stumbled upon this reading pattern, of reading a Kindle title and a print book for the week. it has also happened to be a review book and a fun book. I like this method so I will continue it. Finally, after how long of looking for an enjoyable reading system? 

What I will be reading:
Next week will be the first week of July, so my theme for that will be Anthologies. I have both print and electronic anthologies that I will be reading. I haven't narrowed the list, but I will do that this week. Though I haven't decided what I am going to partner with them. I know I want to finish some series, so it will either be the end of Kelley Armstrong adult Otherworld series, or Darby Karchut's Finn and Griffin Books (I have been dying to read these for so long). But since next week is the last week of classes, I may actually get through even more books without killing myself. 

What I wish I was reading right now:
I will probably go back to clearing my Goodreads shelf in August (if I don't get through them before then). I can't say that I am unhappy with what I'm ready, because I'm not. I can say that I have a lot of awesome books (Hunted by Kevin Hearne and the Escape from Furnace by Alexander Gordon Smith jumps to mind) lined up for this summer. So I am hoping that it doesn't fly by so I can enjoy all of the books that I want to. 

Well, that's all from my desk! Leave a link or mention in the comments on what you're reading this week!!

Always Shine,

  1. I am DYING for Hunted by Kevin Hearne. I adore Atticus and Oberon beyond reason!

    1. I am too, especially after Book 5! But there are a few books that I want to get to before revisiting Oberon and Atticus. A couple of books that I carry with me, and pine over. I'm getting back into the groove, I've recharged and ready for action.
