WWW (7) and Waiting on Wednesday (June 15th, 2011) Double Feature

W. W. W. Wednesday is hosted by Should Be Reading a great YA blog that I subscribe to. Here's how it works... Each Wednesday I will answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you'll read next?


I've been a little slack on my weekly memes, but I'm trying. I actually wrote a WWW/WoW last week, but it was Saturday by the time I finished it, so i just scrapped it.... Going to see Phish tonight, so this one will be short and sweet.

What are you currently reading?

Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter~ I just started this morning and I can already tell that it's going to be amazing. Don't you love it when a book grabs you from page one?


Entwined by Heather Dixon~ I'm having a hard time getting into this one. It's gotten great reviews on Goodreads, so I'm sticking with it, but I'm on page 96 and not liking it at all...



What did you recently finish reading?

Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky~ SOOOOO good! A total must read. One of my favorites of 2011. Read my review HERE.


The Black (Morpheus Road, #2) by D.J. MacHale~ Even better than the first book (The Light). From Cooper's point of view this time. If you like creepy stories, this series is a great one. Review coming soon.



Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl~ Both were fabulous. Read my reviews HERE.



Wake by Lisa McMann~ I liked it, didn't love it. I thought Cryer's Cross was better. Review coming soon.



Stay by Deb Caletti~ Great book. Scary premise. Review to come.






What do you think you'll read next?

Bumped by Megan McCafferty~ This has been on my TBR for ages. It's finally out and I have it on my nightstand...



Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic~ This is an ARC that looks pretty good. Look for my review soon...


Beauty Queens by Libba Bray~ One of my most anticipated titles of 2011. So excited!






"Waiting On" Wednesday is another fun blog event. Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, this event gives us a chance to talk about the books we anxiously await the release of. Since there is ALWAYS a looooooong list of books I'm waiting on (I actually keep a spreadsheet), I figured this is one that I MUST do.

Having just fallen in love with the Caster Chronicles, I have to put the next book on my WoW because I am antsy for it!




Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl


Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena's Claiming. Even Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals is affected - and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What - or who - will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin? 

For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He's being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn't by Lena - and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself - forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn't know why, and most days he's too afraid to ask. 

Sometimes there isn't just one answer or one choice. Sometimes there's no going back. And this time there won't be a happy ending.

If you read my review of the first two books, you know that I think the writing and plotline of this series are flawless. I am so invested now that I can't help but be anxious to know what happens next! Come on October and get here...

Thanks for visiting my blog! I adore comments since they make me feel special and loved, just please don't spam me. I'm not interested in vacation offers, millions of dollars from Nigeria, or anything not book related!

Also, this is an award-free blog. As flattered as I am, I just don't have time. I'm happy if I have time to post all of my reviews on time, and am a momma of three to boot, but I appreciate the thoughts! XO
