This is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. To join in, click on the image above, and answer these three questions:
What are you currently reading?
I started this one, but I am just not that into it. Don’t get me wrong, I want to be…but it’s just too outlandish. It wants to be real, but it’s a poser, a fake. I don’t like that. I don’t like that in people, I don’t like it in my books.
BUT I’m already past the quarter mark. I don’t want to not finish it, but one of my resolutions was to not force myself to continue reading a book I should DNF.
So…I am considering DNFing it. We are just not clicking.
What did you just finish reading?
I just finished the first book in The Lockwood Legacy, Langston’s Daughters. The title is very apt, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Despite the nature of the reason the daughters are called back home (and from the standpoint of someone who has had multiple relatives and friends commit suicide), Harper did a pretty good job of glossing over it. The other characters kind of dance around it, trail off, and leave it unsaid.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I will be jumping into children’s and middle grades literature for March. The rebellious Princess Madeline will be one of the first reviews for the month.
The Kingdom of Soron is known for many things: its rolling landscape, haunting history, fiery sunsets, and beautiful princess. Princess Madeline woke on her sixteenth birthday to realize that her future had been planned out, a life full of privilege, royalty, and boredom… a life with a husband and knight champion that she did not choose. Using her charm, strength, and stubbornness, she defies the King at every turn, determined to keep her freedom on her terms.
But freedom quickly turns to disaster as she finds herself seized by a group of wandering bandits. The kingdom is in turmoil over her capture—her Knight Champion eager to prove himself, a group of dedicated suitors determined to win her hand, and a group of exiled wizards joining forces in the hunt to rescue her. Follow Princess Madeline in this adventure to find freedom and love.
