This will be the second year where I have challenged my self to read more. It all started when my husband suggested I should read more after I picked on him for being such a slow reader (a chapter a week). So I took the challenge.
For 2014 I have set the same goal as last year: 52 books – a book a week.
This year I am joining Toni’s 2014 Reading Challenge to help me be accountable of this challenge (I almost threw the challenge last year), to share my reading material, as well to help me keep better track of what I have already read.
Reading Challenge 2014: January
Prodigy and Crown of Midnight are definite must reads.
Prodigy is the second book in the Legend series about a dystopian world where the Republic’s prodigy girl, June, meets the nation’s most wanted criminal. In Prodigy June and Day are on the run, trying to figure out who they can trust.
Wicked Lovely is a quick read where the normal world intertwines with the faery world. The story evolves around Aislinn who can see the faeries which is dangerous if they find out. Now she is being stalked by Keenan, the Summer King. I really like books about faeries but this one was just Ok. 3 out of 5 stars from me. At first: promising. Ending: blah, uneventful.
Elixir is a novella in the Covenant Series which preludes Apollyon. It is not a necessary read, but gives you extra insight on what is happening on book 4 in the series.
Crown of Midnight is the second book in the Throne of Glass Series. In this sequel we follow the story of Celaena Sardothien after she becomes the royal assassin. Death. Betrayal. Love. Misery. Epic-ness.
Midnighters received 2 stars from me. I was just not able to connect to any of the characters who call themselves The Midnighters. The premise of the book is that there are actually 25 hrs in the day. During that hour almost everyone is frozen. Only the Midnighters and dark creatures than haunt the shadows can experience this extra hour. Just didn’t do it for me.
Apollyon is the 4th book in The Covenant Series that follows Aiden, a pure-blood, and Alex, a half-breed, as they try to safe their race from the Apollyon. Alex is now the second Apollyon and the lives of every living person, hematoi or human, rely on her ability of to keeping Seth from becoming the God Killer. If you like Greek Mythology this is a must read!
The Obsidian Blade was a promising read about time traveling. It was alright until the time travelers stole Jesus’s body and healed him and returned him 3 days later. It was definitely not what I was expecting. At the end it felt like it was more propaganda against technology than anything else.
Black City is going to be an epic series! This story takes place in Black City were humans and Darklings co-exist. Yup, this is a book about vampires. Prohibited love. Conspiracies. Cults. This book has it all. Truly recommend it. Even though I tried my best to not read vampire books I think this is a must read!
