Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere, He’s used to people judging him for his rough background, his intimidating size, and now, his orphan status. He’s always been on the outside, looking in, and he’s fine with that. Until he moves to New Wurzburg and meets Friederike Burkhart.

Freddie isn’t like normal teen girls, though. And someone wants her dead for it. Freddie warns he’d better stay far away if he wants to stay alive, but Rain’s never been good at running from trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for.

Hey guys! It’s Monday once again and I’m hitting you with a late post. My Monday was pretty great and to help end yours on a good note, here’s another “It’s Monday! What Are You Readings” post! This feature is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date with the YA version being hosted by Kellee of Unleashing Readers and Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts. This feature is a great way to share what you’ve read, plan out your reading week, and to take a peek at what great books other people reading !

JUST FINISHED READING

Throne of Glass

So, I’ve been hearing a lot about Sarah J. Mass and I’ve been a tad ashamed to admit that I’ve never read one of her books. So I said, everyone gushes about her writing, it couldn’t hurt to buy one of her books. And oh-em-gee: loved it. But more on that later.

CURRENTLY READING

Firebolt

Still reading this. This is definitely one of the books I’ll be reviewing in the future so I don’t want to give too much away but I will say this: if you experience strong feelings of embarssment on behalf of characters or get strong second hand embarrassment then #beware. #thatisall

Sense and Sensibility

I’ve always prided myself as a big Jane Austen fan, I mean have you read Pride and Prejudice? But I realized I kind of need to experience her other books and somehow previous attempts have failed. So I decided to start with Sense and Sensibility. I have four words thus far: “Marianne, please just stop”.

Still really eager to read this, I guess the difficulty is the fact it’s a physical book as opposed to a kindle book and it just means more weight everyday.

So as guessed, my reading really has slowed down since my return to work but I;ve still managed to read some really good books. How was your Monday and what are you guy reading?

In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or “glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.

As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.

Hey guys! It’s October 30th, 2017!!! The official return date of Words That Fly. While I’ve been out of the blogging and book review life for a few years, I’m back now and ready to go and I have some amazing books to review for you guys in the coming months.

To start us off, I’ve decided to stick with the winning feature: “It’s Monday! What Are You Readings” hosted by Kathryn at Book Date with the YA version being hosted by Kellee of Unleashing Readers and Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts. This feature is a great way to share what you’ve read, plan out your reading week, and to take a peek at what great books other people reading !

Any Way You Slice It

I finished this yesterday morning at about 5am; it was really just so engrossing that I had to forego sleep and see how things turned out. I’m glad to say it did not disappoint and I look forward to sharing my review with you guys.

So, I’ve literally just started this book and I’ve got high hopes. Fingers crossed it’s as good as I hope it will be!

So interesting-ish story, before last week I’d never read a book by P. C. Cast. Then I walked into this cute little artisan type café/ restaurant/ whatever it was and realized that had two bookshelves just full of books. I asked: “Oh, are these books here so patrons can eat and read?” The guy behind the desk cheerfully told me people can just walk in and take the books should any of them interest them. He added that we didn’t even have to bring them back. Needless to say I was intrigued (I have every intention of taking back the books and donating a few more)! I devoured Goddess of Love, book 5 in her Goddess Summoning series, and decided I needed to give her House of Night series a try. Has anyone else read this book?

That’s pretty much it for what’s on my reading list this week guys. Firebolt is pretty long and I’ve just returned to work after a pretty awesome two week vacation, so I definitely have to slow down on the reading and get back into the flow of my 9 to 5. Here’s to hoping every one of you has an awesome Monday! And be sure to let me know what you’re reading this week or have read recently.
