WWW: May 8

Time to play . . .

Thanks to MizB at Should Be Reading for hosting. As usual she asks three questions:

1. What have you finished reading?
2. What are you currently reading?
3. What are you planning on reading?

1. What have you finished reading?

Sanditon (Goodreads
This is an uncompleted work by Jane Austen that was added to by "Another Lady". I loved it. The story is charming, the romance wonderful and the cast of characters replete Jane Austen's usual irony, silliness and depth. A magical read.

 Trail of Bones (Goodreads)
I read this for a blog tour I'm part of. To be honest, I feel a little bit "Hunger Games-ish" about it. The book is brilliant, but so cruel and violent that I struggle to say that I actually like it. My review will be coming on 18th of May

2. What are you currently reading?

Insignia (Goodreads)
I started off so well with this, but the book ran out of steam for me. I'm half way through it, but I don't see where it's going. I've put it down in favour of books I need to read for review purposes. Hopefully I will come back to it.

Shadow of the Realm (Goodreads)
I was lucky enough to get this one from the publisher from Netgalley. Thank you very much. I have just started it and am really intrigued to see where it goes because - as you all probably know by know - I LOVE dragons. Hope to post a review next week.

3. What are you planning on reading?

Ender's World
I saw this on Netgalley and almost jumped out my skin! As an Ender junkie, I just had to have it. The book consist of essays by Orson Scott Card and other Sci-Fi writers on the evolution and deeper meanings behind Ender's Game (Goodreads) and Ender as a character. I started reading it and was totally captivated. Then self-discipline kicked in and I put it aside to deal with my other commitments. But it is definitely up next!

Perception (Goodreads) 
I was kindly given this by the publisher, All Nigh Reads, for review. It's a SF/mystery/romance set in the near future against a dystopian background of genetic engineering. Sounds so cool and I can't wait to get my claws into it. (I just hope I'm not a wuss like I was with Unwind (Review). But even if it's not for me, I know Erin will love it. Expect a review soon.

So that's me. As usual, leave a link and I'll visit you.
