Tell Me Tuesdays is a meme/feature created by the awesome ladies of Please Feed The Bookworm and La La In The Library where we can share how we choose the book we are currently reading from our TBR pile!
I'm always curious about that, cause as much as I tend to make myself a rough schedule for books to read and the like, I'm quite a mood reader and sometimes I just HAVE to ignore my schedule and read something else!
Between by Megan Whitmer
"When a supernatural freak of nature forces her family to separate, seventeen-year-old Charlie Page must turn to her frustrating (yet gorgeous) neighbor, Seth, to help reunite them. Seth whisks Charlie to Ellauria--a magical world filled with the creatures of myths and legends--and tells her of the Fellowship, the group charged with protecting mystical beings from human discovery. (All except Bigfoot: that attention whore is a total lost cause.) But when Charlie learns that she's under the Fellowship's protection herself, well, ""stressed"" is an understatement. Ellauria should be the safest place for Charlie while the Fellowship works to find her family, but things in the mystical realm aren't what they seem. Magic is failing, creatures are dying, and the Fellowship insists Charlie holds the key to saving everyone. With her family still missing and the danger in Ellauria growing, Charlie doesn't know who she can trust. She's dealing with a power she never asked for, falling for a guy she can't have, and being forced to choose between her destiny and her heart. And if she chooses wrong, she could destroy magic forever. Charlie may be in over her head."
I had preordered this one cause it sounded like a great paranormal/fantasy mix and also requested it on NetGalley and I got approved for it after release day, so now I'm reading my finished copy but it will also count for ARC August and improve my ratio on NG!
So what are you all guys reading and how and why did you decide to pick up that book? Shiny new ARC? Comfort read? Scheduled for review? Must have new release? Tell me!!
It do seem pretty great :D Awesome post Pili. <3 I really hope you enjoy this one. *Fingers crossed* :D I'm reading Beware the Wild right now; as I adore the cover and it's via Edelweiss :) Not far in, but liking it.. no love yet. Sobs. Happy reading sweetie. <3ReplyDelete

Two in a row MEH for ARC August; Zac and Mia and now Nest. However, I get a reward after finishing Nest (my 4th ARC August book) because a blogger sent me her ARC of Dash!! I have been waiting to read this since I read the blurb on Netgalley a couple of months ago. My request for it on NetG is still sitting there like a lump.ReplyDelete
YAY for reward reads! I hope you'll love Dash!Delete
Right now I'm reading... What the heck *am* I reading?? Oh! Ha, I'm reading Darkness Watching by Emma L. Adams which I got for review :) bad memory, lolReplyDelete
LOL! Bad memory and maybe not too memorable book? ;)Delete
Ha! Funny you say that... I *just* finished this book and I think you may be right... It didn't wow me =/Delete
What a bummer! =/Delete
I do like that cover :D Ellauria is an interesting name! I like it. Fantasy is great! I hope you love this one, Pili!ReplyDelete
Speaking of NetGalley ratios... I'm at 79.8%. UGH UGH UGH. I can't ever seem to stay above 80%, whenever I reach 80%. I keep requesting books LOL
Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!
I'm still over 70% but nowhere close to 80% myself!Delete
Sounds interesting, Pili! I'm reading a couple of different things . . . Book 2 in both The Dresden Files and Jane Yellowrock. I need to pick a YA too, but I have no idea what I'm going to go with, LOL.ReplyDelete
Hmmm, I'm quite curious about the Dresden Files books, I'll have to keep an eye on your upcoming review for it, Jessica!Delete
I'm reading too many all at the same time haha, but I'm currently finishing the Locking Skull? Was that its name? LOL I forgot, but it's an MG horror read that's very endearing, and I picked it up because it's the sequel to one of the best MGs I read last year (The Screaming Staircase) YOU HAFTA READ IT, PILI!ReplyDelete
