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:

Teaser Tuesday

Ensign Davis thought, Screw this, I want to live, and swerved to avoid the land worms. But then he tripped and one of the land worms ate his face and he died anyway.

This book is hilarious. I grew up watching Star Trek TOS so as soon as I saw this book I knew that it was something I had to read. A friend bought me this book for my birthday and I’m very happy to finally read it!



We all know what happens here…
 


 

Friday Memes (On a Saturday)

Friday Favorites
I’m currently reading Heir of Fire, the third book in The Throne of Glass series. I absolutely love the covers! I think they’re beautiful and def fit the fantasy genre. It’s a bit of foreshadowing, too, I think, after having read the first two books.


Book Beginnings on Fridays

Hail and welcome to all whose paths have led to the pages of this book! If you’re here, you’re probably a magickal practitioner of some sort. You might be eclectic or you might follow an established tradition; you might honor four elements, seven, or none; you might worship the sun or the moon; you might be seer, lorekeeper, or spellcaster; you might be solitary or a member of a robust and thriving circle. Regardless of tradition, what connects all magickal practitioners is the practice of magick itself.
