Over the past week or so, I've finished The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (okay), What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang (enjoyed it) and Fifty Shades Darker (enjoyed it...I keep expecting to hate each book in this trilogy and am surprised to enjoy them!)
 

Now starting 34 Pieces of You by Carmen Rodrigues

The next Soul Screamers book, If I Die, that I was waiting for came in the mail so I read that yesterday. The following book, Before I Wake, also came so I guess The Maze Runner is on the back burner for another day or so! I didn't really care for this series when I started it but it grew on me!

Val,

I have the second book I will try to get it read and put in for the next round

I am reading

 
I am about half done. It is okay, not calling to me a lot. Not really into the character. I love the cover, I am pretty cover fan I get sucked right in.

Alice..I agree with you about Carnival of Souls!

 

I just finished Let the Sky Fall and enjoyed it!  I really liked both characters, and I usually find myself disliking or not caring about stories told from a male character's point of view

Now starting A Fractured Light by Jocelyn Davies

I started  Girl Of Nightmares :: Kendare Blake last night. Does a good job picking up after Anna Dressed in Blood. Val I did put in the YA VB.

I also finished this weekend 

 
Nicely done, My 17 year old daughter  likes the series a lot too. I just ordered book 3 and 4.  Book 5 comes out in the spring it is suppose to be the last book in the series.

Finished Monstrous Beauty on audio yesterday.  Actually quite liked it and flow between 1873 and the present was easy enough to follow.  Started Time Between Us now in the car..
