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!
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
Her throne awaits . . . if she can live long enough to take it.
It was on her nineteenth birthday that the soldiers came for Kelsea Glynn. They’d come to escort her back to the place of her birth – and to ensure she survives long enough to be able to take possession of what is rightfully hers.
But like many nineteen-year-olds, Kelsea is unruly, has high principles and believes she knows better than her elders. Unlike many nineteen-year-olds, she is about to inherit a kingdom that is on its knees – corrupt, debauched and dangerous.
Kelsea will either become the most fearsome ruler the kingdom has ever known . . . or be dead within the week.
Combining thrilling adventure and action, dark magic, mystery and romance, The Queen of the Tearling is the debut of a born storyteller blessed with a startling imagination.
Ensnared by A.G. Howard
After surviving a disastrous battle at prom, Alyssa has embraced her madness and gained perspective. She’s determined to rescue her two worlds and the people and netherlings she loves. Even if it means challenging Queen Red to a final battle of wills and wiles . . . and even if the only way to Wonderland, now that the rabbit hole is closed, is through the looking-glass world—-a parallel dimension filled with mutated and sadistic netherling outcasts.
In the final installment of the Splintered trilogy, Alyssa and her dad journey into the heart of magic and mayhem in search of her mom and to set right all that’s gone wrong. Together with Jeb and Morpheus, they must salvage Wonderland from the decay and destruction that has ensnared it. But even if everyone succeeds and comes out alive, can they all truly have their happily ever after?
This week I'm taking a lil breather from reading ARCs and enjoying the feel of reading some physical books! I'm finally reading Ensnared, the highly awaited finaly book in the Splintered trilogy, and I'm doing a buddy read with Britt from Please Feed the Bookworm! And I'm also finally reading my Alyssa Recommends book for January: The Queen of the Tearling! After not only having Alyssa recommend it, but also Wendy and Layla from The Midnight Garden highly recommend it, I had to read it already!
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!!
I like that cover for Queen SO much more than the original! Super creepy and compelling:) Can't wait to see what you think of both of these. I've read a number of reviews of Ensnared and they've all been really varied, so I'm curious as to your thoughts:)ReplyDelete
I was partial to the swirls of the original cover BUT this illustrated version is SO awesome it's totally won me over!Delete
I'm so nervous about Ensnared because it's the final book!!
The best reading week ever for you!! I worship The Queen of the Tearling! Go request Invasion of the Tearling on EW!!!! And, ahhhhhhh!!!! You guys are finally reading Ensnared! I get to finally dicuss it! *happy dance* I am putting up my TMT in a few minutes, I just have to put my links in. I drafted it during lunchtime and I am trying to get it posted now during my break. *wuzzies*ReplyDelete
YES!! So far I'm already in love with both, I've only started them! And then I also got in the mail This Shattered World and that's what I'm reading now!Delete
YAY to Ensnared!! Its so good! Did you get to the mountain scene yet?!? We must have a dm session soon! xoxoReplyDelete
I'm a bit behind because I got distracted with This Shattered World yesterday, but I hope to catch up today!Delete
Oh my gosh!! I NEED to finish the Splintered series!! I'll have to get that book soon to complete my collection!ReplyDelete
Right now I'm re-reading Clarity by Kim Harrington before I start on the sequel, Perception :)
YES! You do need to read Ensnared ASAP Lili!!Delete
I haven't read The Splintered series yet. Is it good?ReplyDelete
It is!! It's a fantastic reimagining of Alice in Wonderland, very visual and with a Burtonian touch of craziness and creepiness to it!Delete
I HOPE YOU LOVE THE FIRST ONE!! Ensnared, well, meh. I'm already upset about the romance. But I think you'll be more okay with it than me :oReplyDelete
Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!
I'm sorry that you're upset about the romance in Ensnared sweetie! I still haven't progressed all that much yet!Delete
But I'm really enjoying Queen of the Tearling!
Man, I wish I could make up my mind about the Queen of the Tarling. On one hand so many people abhor it, on the other hand, so many people love it @_@ I ish so confused!!! I'll have to read what Wendy has to say :DReplyDelete
Faye at The Social Potato
Faye, I say give it a try yourself! I was also torn given how extreme the reactions were, but so far? I'm really liking it!!Delete
Aw, best of luck with these books sweetie. <3 I hope you love them :) (Fine, I kind of hope you hate them, lol, but hating books is pretty depressing.) I hated Tearling, as you know, hih, and I won't ever read Ensnared. Sigh. Stupid love triangle :( I'm not pleased. Anyway. Happy reading sweetie :D I just finished All the Rage. <3 SO MUCH LOVE. Will read The Fire Sermon next :)ReplyDelete
YAY for All The Rage! I requested it on NetGalley, so I hope to be approved soon!Delete
