Hosted by LA LA in the Library
Last week, my bloggy friend Elizabeth over at So Long and Thanks for All the Fish posted this new feature that she got from LA LA in the Library and I coveted it. So now it is mine - mwah hah hah hah hah!! Ahem. Anyways, the point is to talk about what you are currently reading and what you have on deck.
WHAT I'M READING NOW
As I lick my wounds over the Seahawks' Super Bowl loss, I have been delving into Megan Shephard's The Madman's Daughter, which is based on H.G. Well's The Island of Doctor Moreau. I haven't read The Island of Doctor Moreau, but I have a general idea what it is about. The Madman's Daughter seems to follow it pretty well. I really like it. It's super creepy. But there is also a lot of disturbing animal parts that are not for the faint of heart. There is a horrifying scene in chapter 2 that almost resulted in a DNF for me. So, if you are sensitive to bad things happening to good animals in books, I would steer you away from this one.
For this week, I will likely start Her Dark Curiosity (the sequel to The Madman's Daughter).
I will also read The Conspiracy of Us with my blog partner, Julia. Joint reads are so much fun because we also text each other while reading and then write up a joint review.
I will probably also read Silence for the Dead by Simone St. James and Faking Normal by Courtney Stevens (both are review books). I'm doing this weird thing where I randomly drew letters of the alphabet and am working through my TBR (books in my possession at least) that way. I'm on letter "S". I just finished "K". I've got a long way to go. LOL.
