Borrowed on Kindle:

I know, I know. Why am I reading a sequel of a book I wasn’t crazy about to begin with? Because it was free. When I saw it was available via the new Kindle lending feature, I decided to give it a shot.

Borrowed from my local library:

I’m reading this with a few others in the Nothing But Reading Challenges group at Goodreads. I loved the first steampunk book from last week (The Alchemy of Stone) so I was excited to read another. I may have to up my participation level in the Steampunk challenge!

These two are for the YA Series Challenge. I keep reading too much about The Mortal Instruments series, so I figured I should get cracking on catching up, especially with City of Fallen Angels coming out soon. I’ve been eyeing the Uglies series for awhile now, so when I saw it was available I thought it would be a nice contrast to the other stuff I’m reading right now.

These three are for the YA Historical Fiction Challenge. It had been so long since I last read a historical fiction novel that when I read The Vespertine last week I realized how much I had been depriving myself. These should keep me occupied the next few weeks, and hopefully sate my hunger for a good, old-fashioned love story.


These two I bought because they were available for under $3 on for my Kindle. I’ve been meaning to read them anyway, and I’m a sucker for a good deal. πŸ™‚

  1. Nice haul! I think my sister read The Red Necklace and enjoyed it. I didn't like Shiver much either, so I'm curious to read your thoughts on Linger.

  2. Great load of books! There's a bunch on here I want to read, and some I haven't heard of…thanks for posting this. I love seeing what other people read.Nice to meet you and your blog, btw!

  3. Wait! What? Are you saying you didn't care for Shiver?*dies*I can't even function right now. *walks away with head hung low*

  4. Okay. I'm back. Sorry to be so full of drama. Thanks for the heads up on the good deals on Amazon. Love me some good deals for my Kindle.Also, I'm so crazy behind on TMI series. Heaven help me.

  5. @Small Review – I actually liked it a little more than Shiver. But barely. @Lydia – Thanks for stopping by! Glad the post was helpful. :)@Aylee – I feel like that about every series right now since I've read so few of them!@Missie – You crack me up. I'm in the minority on Shiver, and I really wanted to like it, but it just didn't do it for me. I am really enjoying TMI though!

  6. uuuuu…. you got a good TBR pile going on πŸ™‚ I just recently got my hands on Linger (loved your review)… I'll let you know how that goes.Diana

  7. The Red Necklace really made me want to read more historical fiction and led me Revolution, which I absolutely loved.My Christmas Kindle just arrived and this post made me want to go straight to amazon and load it up! Under $3?! I love living in the future.

  8. Love, love, love A Great and Terrible Beauty! It's totally historical fiction with a shot of paranormal – so great! I have to say – I read Uglies and it wasn't my favorite… But I am about to read The Dark Divine too! I bought the paperback for more than $3 tho! Dang it.

  9. @Diana – Looking forward to your review! @Carrie – Revolution is on my list as well. I love historical fiction so much.@Emma – I didn't know A Great and Terrible Beauty had a paranormal element (shows how much I pay attention). Glad to know you liked it so much. I hope I do too!
