On the Night Table [24]:

DSC00341


Hello.

One of these days, I’m going to look back at these posts and figure out how many books fell on the way side as the weeks go along. Last week, I tried to tackle four books and failed to read all four. I didn’t get to The Other Son, because like I mentioned before, it was a second book to a series and I didn’t have the first book. I’ll postpone it for now in the meantime.

This week, while I have four books on the pile, I technically only have to read two. I finished Becoming Rain last weekend, and I only have about a quarter left of Everything, Everything. Let’s hope The Lightning Thief will be an easy read as Villa America looks like the kind of book that needs my entire attention.

Read
  • Burying Water by K.A. Tucker
  • The House of the Four Winds by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory
  • One Thing Stolen by Beth Kephart
  • Night Fever Books 1-4 by Jessica Hawkins

As expected, Burying Water was fantastic. The House of the Four Winds didn’t really blow my sails; One Thing Stolen was not for me and the Night Fever Books sizzled.

Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments!

 

  • I’m looking forward to reading your review of Everything Everything, Joy! SUCH A PRETTY COVER. I’m interested in reading your thoughts- will you be posting a review? And even from the side Villa America looks kind of amazing; I’ve never heard of it, but I hope it’s a successful read. xx

  • I have Burying Water on my Kindle! Because I’ve always wanted to start the series and I ended up buying it πŸ˜€ Glad to see you loved Becoming Rain!

  • Yay for reading lots of books. <3 You are awesome Joy πŸ˜€ And YAAAAY for trying Percy Jackson shortly πŸ˜€ Let me know how it goes? <3 I very much want you to love it. Fingers crossed πŸ™‚ Happy reading sweet girl. <3

  • Planning to read series by K.A. Tucker this year. Everything, Everything sounds good too. Waiting to hear your thoughts about it. πŸ™‚

  • I actually really enjoyed Burying Water. However, I must admit that I wanted to burn Becoming Rain with fire. …..

  • At the very least, at least these posts can show us your awesome photography πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to your review on Becoming Rain, I hope you enjoyed it!

  • I think I already told you that I loved Burying Water. That’s the only one I am familiar with. Enjoy the ones you have left πŸ™‚

  • I haven’t heard of any of these books except for Everything, Everything, which, to me, was EVERYTHING. I loved this book and i hope you will too!

  • Melliane

    happy reading girl!

  • I’ve heard great things about all of these, and I really enjoyed the Lightning Thief even though I only read it for the first time about a year ago. Enjoy!

  • Life happens Joy! You will get there! I have faith!

  • Happy reading this week! πŸ™‚

  • Not read any of them but liking the look of Villa America, will check it out. Happy reading!

  • I haven’t had the glorious opportunity to read any of these books. It sounds like you’re kind of in a book slump. That’s what I’m kind of going through it too so I hope you get out of it soon because that’s never fun. I hope you get back to zipping through your books again real soon!

  • Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

    I really need to read a book by Tucker as soon as possible! I keep hearing such wonderful things and your opinion just confirms it. I’m not sure what I’ve been waiting for, but I’m off to buy something right now.

  • Jenny @ Supernatural Snark

    Heh. You sound like me Joy! I had a list of books to read last week and I didn’t get to any of them either. Oh well. Sounds like you’re already making good progress on this stack though, so go you!!!! Looking forward to your reviews:)

  • I’ll be reading Everything, Everything next and I’m looking forward to it. Everyone has been raving about it. How is it going for you so far?
    And I want to know what you thought of Becoming Rain as well! πŸ™‚
    Happy reading, Joy!

    Ohhh! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Villa America. Love the Lightning Thief!

  • I just recently finished Everything, Everything. I absolutely loved it until the twist at the end. I was disappointed in the author’s decision to take it there. I still really enjoyed it, though.

  • I guess The Lightning Theif is a good story although I haven’t read it yet! :p

  • kindlemom1

    Oh the Lightning Thief, how fun! I really hope you enjoy all of these!

  • PERCY JACKSON! I love the Percy series, I know they’re classed as middle grade, but they’re just so lovely and a real joy to read. Pardon the pun. I’m looking forward to starting his spin off series soon too, recently bought the set. I can’t wait to see what you think of it Joy, hopefully it picks you up out of the bit of a reading slump you’re in <3

  • You finished Becoming Rain? I gotta know what you think about it. Hurry and post a review, then start Chasing River. Chop chop! πŸ˜›
