Wednesday Memes: Giveaway, What I’m Reading, What’s Coming Out

It’s that time again where I give you the three Ws of Wednesday

What I’m reading: Redshirts by John Scalzi. It’s hilarious, a satire on Star Trek the original series (with Shatner and Leondard Nimoy. Unfortunately, as funny as it is, it’s not keeping my interest. I am determined to finish it, though! Let’s see if I follow through…


What I just finished reading: Taken by Erin Bowman. It was pretty darn good. An action-packed story that started out strong and stayed strong (unlike Matched, a book I also just recently read).

What I think I’ll read next: This one is hard. I have so many books that I want to read right now. But, alas, I cannot read more than two or three books at a time (and they have to be alternating fiction and non-fiction) so it’s going to be hard to choose. But, I’m going to sort of make up my mind. I’ll try to be reading Scintillate because I was sent the second book, Deviate, to review. I didn’t realize it was the second book in the series when I accepted the offer. Fortunately, Book Outlet had the first in the series so I pounced on that and included it in my birthday gift.

“Waiting On” Wednesday
Yesterday the book The Sin Eater’s Daughter was released. As soon as I saw the cover in Barnes and Noble I raced around petting it and wishing that I’d be able to read it very soon. Because my birthday was yesterday I have a little extra cash for books–though I’m buying a bow so I can keep up archery so le birthday money probs won’t go far. This book, however, is one I must read so I will make sure I do that.

Winning Wednesday
This is super cool. It’s a meme where we highlight book giveaways that we’re doing. Even though it has its own post I want to make sure that you have every opportunity you can to win these three books:
