After yearS, I paid my local library a visit and those are my loot! Sigh, I missed the smell and feel of my church. I'll make it a point to support it more. Meanwhile, below are my mini-reviews for my borrows.
Night Broken by Patricia Briggs | Mercedes Thompson 8
Urban Fantasy | March 11, 2014 | Ace
Goodreads | Amazon
Finally I'm caught up with Mercy and all the happenings in the Columbia Basin Pack! Goddamn, Night Broken, sucked me in 100%. Thanks to all your reviews, I was forewarned about The Christy situation, but even with advance notice. Adam's ex-wife still got under my skin. There's nothing like ex-drama to rile us up, right?
Totally LOVED Night Broken to pieces. I was just wondering if Christy has fae blood because she has Adam and the pack wrapped in her itsy bitsy finger. Also, Patricia Briggs is way better than me if Mercy is channeling her during the more difficult moments with Christy. If it were me, I'd totally go ballistic, rip Christy's face and make her eat it. Aside from the emotionally affecting parts, Night Broken is packed with fantastic action, go Mercy! Also, How gooey is her and Adam's moments? Oh lawd! You don't need a good sex scene (although I wouldn't mind) to appreciate how much these two love each other. #mustread
Half A King by Joe Abercrombie | Joe Abercrombie
High Fantasy | July 15, 2014 | Del Rey
Going against the grain here because Half A King didn't captivate or pull me in from the get-go. It took me DAYS to read 23 pages, I read all my Goodreads friends' reviews just to motivate me that Half A King is worth my time. I gave it another try and it took e 12 hours to read 3 pages. That's when I gave up and realized the book isn't for me. I know it's not a slump because I breezed through Menagerie by Rachel Vincent without a hitch.
That said, I'm not ready to give up yet. Maybe the timing is off, I'm determined to get to know Prince Yarvi and his reign better. I'll revisit Joe Abercrombie's book at a later time.
The Diviners by Libba Bray | The Diviners 1
YA Historical-Supernatural | September 18, 2012 | Little Brown Books
Currently reading The Diviners. I'm interested so far, the book is very pretty, and it's a chunky book (578 pages!) so I'm guessing I'll be reading it throughout the weekend. I have high hopes for The Diviners, it does seem like the kind of fantasy, albeit YA, that I can get lost in. I love the occult and I'm feeling Libba Bray's writing voice so far. Fingers crossed I'll love it.
How about you, what's on your weekend shelf?
