I realized I haven’t shared with you any of the books I’ve been reading lately.
As a matter of fact, I can’t remember the last time I told you what books I’ve read. (let me check, hang on)
End of March. I’ve done a lot of reading since then. Especially on my trip. Lots of time to read on those airplanes…
I guess I’ll pick a couple and share with you…
This is the first one I’ll share. It’s totally a Young Adult-type book, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was another Friday Freebie on Barnes & Noble (love that!) and I was only too happy to download it and give it a try.
The premise is around a young (18ish) girl whose aunt dies and leaves her a “legacy” of 13 envelopes. Each envelope contains a “mission” and she can’t open an envelope until she has finished the mission in the previous envelope.
It’s all about learning to experience life, live in the moment, go with the flow, etc.
As a mom, I couldn't help reading it and thinking what mother in their right mind would let her child go traipsing around Europe without adult supervision. But the story was charming and I enjoyed the escapism of reading it every night.
There is a second one out:
But I haven’t read it (yet) May be poolside reading for this summer.
Once I finished that one, I dove into another YA book that was (yet another) Friday Freebie (or discounted offering, can’t remember)
And all I can say is oh.my.goodness.
This was a really good book. Really good series, as a matter of fact.
(there are three books so far in the series)
If you liked the Twilight books, you’d love this. I liked them, although I got a little tired of the sighing and drama of them by the time I got to the last book. Enough already, Bella. Really!
This series is even more well-written.
The story is about a young girl who finds out (through the appearance of some rather interesting appendages) that she is a Faerie. The story is a mix of fantasy, Arthurian-type legend, teenage romance, and adventure.
I was hooked from the beginning and have read all three in the series and can’t wait for the next one to come out.
I would highly recommend it and even though it is technically classified as Young Adult, it’s really, really good.
So, what are you reading these days?
