On the Night Table [#8]: Space and the Japanese Circus.

THIS SHATTERED WORLD by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
OWL AND THE JAPANESE CIRCUS by Kristi Charish


Hell’s bells. I’m feeling under the pressure here. I wanted to train myself into being a more disciplined reader, so I decided to plan the books I’ll be reading at the start of the week. Unfortunately, I’ve not been successful in clearing my reading queue before I start a new one.  I’m probably going to try and finish these books first before I post another OTNT. I don’t want to get too backlogged.

This week, I’m adding a couple ARCs that have slipped my notice. This Shattered World was published back in December, and Owl will hit the bookstores tomorrow.

I know a bit about the Starbound series, but very little about Owl and the Japanese Circus. I know it’s Urban Fantasy, which, if you’re familiar with the books that I read, is a rarity.  I’ve read a  recent review on Talk Supe, and Braine gave it high praises.  I’m hoping my being unfamiliar with the genre will not be a deterrence.

I only managed to finish one book from my pile last week. I knew going in that it was a bit ambitious. Especially when I’m the type of reader who gets easily distracted. I finished A Constellation of Vital Phenomena. It is such a wonderful read! I swear I laughed as hard as I cried. What an evocative, brilliant, unassuming novel.

I’m in the midst of Dark Triumph at the moment. I’m having a tough go at it because it’s been a long time since I read the first book. I need some sort of refresher.

Andrew Pyper’s The Damned is pretty freaking creepy. I just need to hunker down and try not to let my imagination run too wild.

What’s in your reading rotation this week?
