Currently Reading – May 8, 2019


I’ve mentioned once or twice before that I am a self-proclaimed, serial book starter.  I start books and if they don’t interest me enough to finish them in one sitting, I usually abandon them.  This leads to many problems, as you can imagine:

  • Lost bookmarks – so many bookmarks left behind in the pages of books I don’t plan on finishing.
  • Naked books – I usually take the dust jacket off of books I’m working on so I can tell that they’re “in progress” and so I don’t crinkle the jackets.  This leads to a problem when I have 5 random jackets lying around and also, 5 naked books.  My inner perfectionist/neat freak doesn’t like that.
  • No reviews!  I can’t review books that I don’t finish.  However, this problem did give me a good idea for a post.

Here’s where you, my lovely readers, are going to hold me accountable for finishing books.  I’m going to tell you everything I’m currently working on.  I strongly encourage calling me out if you see that I’m not finishing books.  This is week one of my new start.  I will finish every book that I start!

Currently Reading:

  • Dark Shores by Danielle L. Jensen (43/368 pages 12%)
  • Thief of Cahraman by Lucy Tempest (42%)
  • Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian (101/432 pages 23%)

  • Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody (59/411 pages 14%)
  • The Cursed Sea by Lauren DeStefano (51/400 pages 13%)

Tell me why I should finish these (some of them have been one here for a while 😏).

  1. I loved Ash Princess when I read it last year (I think, but don’t quote me on that!) as an ARC but I recently reread it in preparation for lady smoke & it just wasn’t as good. I don’t know if it was because I was in a book slump (most probably), if it’s very based on plot twists & so doesn’t lend itself to rereading or if I’ve just read more YA now & know more about books. But I’m currently reading Lady Smoke, so we’ll see how that goes! I know I’m super late to this post so tell me what you thought of it or if you DNFed it! ❤

    1. It’s still a work in progress for me but I really want to finish it. I think the story is a bit slow burning for my usual preference but I want to see it all the way through!
