#FridayReads

For those of you not down with the vlogs so much, I'm writing to you, too. But you can skip the reading and go straight to the video or you can skip the video and read this. Or you can go in for double torture and do both. Pick your bookish poison.

 I'm reading some great stuff right now and into the weekend. Of course I'm plugging away at Jane Eyre for #SeptembEyre and RIPVIII, and I'm ahead of the schedule right now.


Since I'm ahead, I picked up the second in the Chaos Walking trilogy, The Ask and the Answer, and it's going super fast. I should be done with it by the end of the weekend!

What are your #FridayReads?

  1. I read The Knife of Never Letting Go and wasn't sure how I'd feel about how I'd feel about continuing on with the series. I think I liked the dog best and his death triggered a rebellion in my book loving and dog loving soul.

    1. I love finding other people who have totally chagned their opinions on books based on what happens to a dog in it. It makes me feel less crazy :) I can handle the death of a dog, it just has to be very carefully done.

  2. Oh my gosh, pink eye stinks! I'm glad you're better. I'm reading Lowcountry Bombshell by Susan Boyer, a local author for me.

    1. I really should read more Atwood. She's one of those authors that I have to really be in the mood for.

  4. I think I would have a similar experience with Jane Eyre if I read it now because the last time I read it was way back in college. I think it would be like reading it for the first time all over again!
    I'm glad you're feeling better - have a great weekend.

    1. That's usually when I do re-read is when I've forgotten so much of the plot that I need a refresher. lol And I usually start remembering as I go along and I notice so much more with each rereading.

  6. Andi, those two books are beautiful! They look like they are related, like siblings.

    1. They do look like siblings! And they're awesome. I finished The Ask and the Answer and it blew my socks off. Still working through Jane and loving every bit of it.

  7. I tried to like the first Ness book but just didn't. Maybe it was too hyped at the time? Didn't have any interest in continuing. :( I do remember loving Jane Eyre years ago though.

    I keep meaning to pick up Mockingjay but Breakinf Bad on Netflix keeps happening instead. Oops!

    1. Awwww, maybe so. It was breakneck intense. It hurt my heart. But I was totally addicted. When all is said and done, I did like this second book much better though.

      I need to watch Breaking Bad. And I need to read the last TWO Hunger Games books. lol

  9. I can't wait to start on the Chaos Walking trilogy -- A Monster Calls was amazing. Reading Jane Eyre as a group read is tempting, I didn't like Jane Eyre at all when I had to read it, but people love it so much I feel like I need to give it another try.

    1. I hope you love it as much as I have! I adored A Monster Calls even though it ripped my heart out and stepped on it.

      I hope you decide to give Jane another try! And if you do, I hope you like it more this time 'round. :D
