The Reward Challenge Update #219, November 27th

Waiting on Wednesday #237, November 25th

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

Iniquity by Amy A. Bartol
Expected Publication: December 8th, 2015
From Goodreads:
I gasp as my body curls toward Brennus like a flower to the sun, for the pleasure of it. He holds me close to him. His nose grazes the length of my neck. He breathes me in. I feel the roar and rush of my heartbeat. I’m his toy; his energy streams into me. He winds the invisible key in my back and the euphoria ratchets and coils inside of me: tick…tick…tick…

Another wicked surge of energy flows from him into me. Pain. Pleasure. Bliss. My jaw unclenches as my lips part. I make a small, breathy sound as we dance. Brennus responds with something close to a growl. “Ye're killing me, mo chroĆ­,” he murmurs. His hand moves down my back infusing me with a golden glow of power. My wings punch violently from me, tearing a hole in my day dress. They spread wide, like a red stain beyond my pale skin. I'm dancing now for the thrill of it. I follow his lead.

As the song comes to an end, Brennus kisses my throat. He whispers in my ear, “When ye get back, come find me, mo chroĆ­. I've healed ye…now wake up and banjax whoever banished ye here…” 

Yeah! This book is finally coming out! I think it's been like 2 years since the last book came out, and yeah, so excited for this book! I want to read it, it looks so great! Though I'm going to have to reread the rest of the series, it's been so long since I read them! What about you guys? Happy reading!

WWW Wednesday #241, November 25th

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?

Thanks to MizB of Should Be Writing now A Daily Rhythm for starting this meme!

I'm currently reading The Harder You Fall, and yeah, it's just a fantastic ending to this series that's so great!
I'm also reading Sacred Evil, and it's really awesome!
I read Heart of Evil, and it was a really great part of the series, really enjoyed the mystery!
I'm going to be reading The Jock and the Fat Chick, and I can't wait, it sounds really funny!

What about you guys? Happy reading!

What I'm Trying to Do

So I've pretty much caught up on by blogging slump from school, besides my reviews. So yesterday while I binge watched Jessica Jones, I was working on the ARC's I've received, making things all uniform and where I want them, as well as creating my review posts when it would be good to review them.

And since I also have 2 more shows on Netflix to binge, that once I'm done with ARC's, that I'm going to try to do meme books, like WTC, RR, and LLFL. So that means that I'll be more likely to read them, yeah!

Also, I'm changing how I do my schedule. Instead of having what day I'm going to read, I'm going to have a list of books that I'm going to try that week, so it's a little less structured, but it's more structured then what I've been doing right now.

So I'm working on December, and onward. And hopefully this'll mean that I'm reading and reviewing ARC's around a month before the book comes out, which is good for everybody!

What about you guys? Happy reading!

Teaser Tuesday #241, November 24th

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!
Today's teaser comes from Sacred Evil by Heather Graham, page 15.

"He'd seen a lot as a homicide detective in New York City. Dead drunks, prostitutes, drug addicts, mob hits and victims of domestic abuse."

Which makes me think that the current body is even worse! Hard to imagine what man can do to their fellow man! What about you guys? Happy reading!
