Wednesday Memes, WWW: Sea of Shadows and The Sin Eater’s Daughter

I always look at this meme on Wednesdays and feel unprepared. There are so many books already out that I want to read that I disregard ones that will soon be coming out soon. I also don’t want to get too excited, because there’s no guaranteeing that I’ll get a copy to review and I don’t want to get my hopes down. But, this time, I actually have two books that I’m looking forward to.

I just read Sea of Shadows, a fantasy/zombie hybrid novel that features two sisters who go on a quest to find each other (to put it very simply). Along the way they encounter many, many obstacles that nearly destroy them. As soon as I finished this book I wanted more. It took a day and a half to read (as did the next book I’m going to mention) and didn’t leave me satisfied at all. The second book in Kelley Armstrong’s series Age of Legends, will be coming out sometime this year. Now, if only I can get an ARC copy…. *hint hint Harper Collins hint*


The second book I’m dying to read the next one of is The Sin Eaters Daughter. This I found out about the month it was released and I jumped at a chance to review it. I read it shortly after reading Throne of Glass so the fantasy element, and the fact it took place in a castle, is something I’ve been craving as of late. It fulfilled my desire and left me wanting more. It’s funny, I have absolutely no clue if there will be a second. Melinda Salisbury left me wanting more and I’d better flipping get more, she can’t just leave me hanging like this!

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:
