WWW Wednesday (8/31)

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading? • What did you recently finish reading? • What do you think you’ll read next?

 My answers:

What are you currently reading? I am still reading “Sapphique” by Catherine Fisher.

Finn has escaped from the terrible living Prison of Incarceron, but its memory torments him, because his brother Keiro is still inside. Outside, Claudia insists he must be king, but Finn doubts even his own identity. Is he the lost prince Giles? Or are his memories no more than another construct of his imprisonment?

What did you recently finish reading? I finished reading “Bloodlines.” Love Adrian! OMG.  When’s the next one coming out again?!

What do you think you’ll read next? After I finish “Sapphique“, I’m planning to dive into “Exit!” I won this one.  It’s interesting yet disturbing from the back over.  Should be different :)!

Tour: Author Interview

I recently had the pleasure of ‘meeting’ T. L. Haddix, the author of the Leroy’s Sins Series.  Today she has honoured me over at her site with an interview.  Check it out!  She asked me new questions and features the cover of the next book in the House Millar series, Blood Bound.

Tease:

Who is your favorite character and why?

That’s easy.  Declán.  He is so laid back, loving, loyal, and driven that you, or at least I, can’t help but love him.  He takes everything as it comes, not worrying about the consequences even when others are begging him to protect himself.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a problem with a friend, family member, or his loves… he is always there for them.  I would love to have him as a friend or boyfriend (if he was real and older, lol).

Teaser Tuesdays (8/30)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers 

Nicholas grinned as he looked around and caught sight of Kayla and Declán moving towards the fridge.  “Ah, is it feeding time?”

Kayla reached back and smacked Nicholas’s shoulder, though she was smiling. 

~p. 4, “Blood Bound” by Áine P Massie [ARC]

   

Note: Nicholas is a vampire, Kayla and Declán are human.

Tour: Blood’s Voice Excerpt

Check out the excerpt from Blood’s Voice over at Speak Without Interruption.  They have posted a nice sized excerpt for all you book fans to nibble upon.

 

Blood’s Voice Info:

Anya Millar had no memory of her life or an instruction manual on how to navigate the insane world of humans, biting, and reality. Instead, Anya has had to learn to navigate the world of love, life, and sanity while avoiding those that would see her dead or enslaved.

This is the ongoing journey of Anya and Nicholas, human loving vampires and the human they love, Declán. What makes it all more complicated is that they are abominations in their own world and Declán is a natural born vampire hunter called a Guardian.

Anya must come to terms with who she is and her missing past, Nicholas must win back the object of his eternal love while dealing with new cravings in his silent heart, and Declán must learn to destroy the very creatures that he has unequivocally given his heart and blood.

Wild Weekend Hop Week

 Welcome to the Wild Weekend Blog and Facebook Hop!

You have both Saturday and Sunday to participate.

BTT – History

Sometimes I feel like the only person I know who finds reading history fascinating. It’s so full of amazing-yet-true stories of people driven to the edge and how they reacted to it. I keep telling friends that a good history book (as opposed to some of those textbooks in school that are all lists and dates) does everything a good novel does–it grips you with real characters doing amazing things.

Am I REALLY the only person who feels this way? When is the last time you read a history book? Historical biography? You know, something that took place in the past but was REAL.

Not all history is boring but I’ve not ready any lately that wasn’t boring.  Now, a good historical romance might be nice! Smile But it’s hard to find, or at least I find it hard to find good, engaging true-history.  I used to though, being history was my other main passion in school… If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears. Winking smile

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
