Currently Reading & To Be Read

I have been ill again so my reading progress has been slow.  However I am still ahead of my goal for 2015 and hope to keep ahead of it!

Currently Listening to :

No, this is not the same book I was listening to the last time I posted my Currently Reading list.  This is the second book in the Rose Gardner series and I downloaded it before I was even halfway through the first book.  Actually I would have downloaded them all if I had the credits/money but it seems Audible only have the first three!  I will rant about that more in my review.

This second book is not as addictive as the first installment but it is still an enjoyable listen.  At first the narrator sounded different....slower?  I went straight from listening to the first book to this second one and there was a change.  I just wasn't sure what.  However now I am deep into the story the difference, whatever it was, isn't bothering me.

As plots go this is an interesting one and there are some funny parts that have me giggling.  Although this time around Rose is being a bit more 'does he really love me' and not as carefree.  Slightly annoying but still in an acceptable level.   Turning out to be a good series but the supernatural aspect is too low key for my liking.

Currently Reading :

My previous experience with this author was a good one so I decided to try the debut for this new series out when I saw it up for grabs.  It is exactly what I expected in terms of cursing, wildness and craziness but only slightly toned down because this is of course Young Adult.  On saying that if this was a film it would definitely have a more adult film rating.

While I am enjoying this strange and dangerous adventure Atlanta Burns is on I have been fighting off a pretty horrible head cold and haven't managed to finish this yet.  I planned on getting it read this weekend but a fever didn't help my plans.

I am going to be grabbing this one as often as possible and will hopefully get it finished within the next couple of days.  I need to know what happens.  I have to see where it is all leading to.  There has to be a bigger picture or a twist coming and I can't wait to find out what!

The Dreaded 'To Be Read' Pile :

There are a few books on this list that are ARC's I try and read these before the release date but sometimes I don't mange it!

I have quite a few books that are just not making it to the top of the pile!

Some of these books are ones I intend on reading asap but new releases or reviews keep taking over.

You have "Beautiful Creatures" listed as TBR. I listened to it on audio and it was an awesome, awesome listen. The reader was very outstanding and they did just a few sound effects that made this one so worth listening to. I don't know if you have the physical or the audio, but I definitely recommend a listen.

Hi Kathy!

I actually have the physical copy. This is the reason I still haven't gotten around to reading it! I read everything on my Kindle or via Audible.

Thanks for letting me know that the audio version is worth listening to. I have added it to my Audible wishlist. Hopefully I will get to it quicker that way!
