What I’m Reading: October 19, 2014

Weekly What I'm Reading

I really deviated from what I posted last week. WHICH IS WHY I don’t commit myself to a weekly TBR. I read what I feel like reading or else it becomes something other than fun.

Anyway, I said that I was going to start reading Z by Therese Anne Fowler but I nixed that in favor of starting Gail Carriger’s YA series, Finishing School. Book #1 is Etiquette & Espionage. I am so far, loving this book. It is so much fun and the way that Carriger immerses the reader in a steampunk world is fabulous. The reason for the switch was because Netgalley sent me a notification about book #2, Curtsies & Conspiracies being available to the first 500 as a “read now” so I jumped on it and got it! Woo!! I have book #1 from Netgalley as well, but I had bought a hard copy of the book several months ago. I figured I had better get to reading them so that I can do reviews for both books. Plus, having read the first three Parasol Protectorate books, I knew I’d love these YA and I do!

Ally Condie MatchedI did finish reading the entire Matched trilogy by Ally Condie last week. I definitely enjoyed reading all three books. I loved the dystopian world that Condie created and I really loved her protagonist, Cassia. I especially liked how the third book was told from three different points of view. I know that some readers don’t having the perspective changed, but I really feel it gives a book more depth when you get to see the story from several points of view. Also, first person pov is unreliable. When you have two other 1st person povs to back up the other, the reader can more easily see what is fact and be able to interpret the emotions of the characters based on how the other characters interpret the same events. Know what I mean? I also love these covers, lol. I definitely want to read more of Ally Condie’s work.

To conclude, my plan for this week is to finish the 1st Finishing School book and start/finish the second. After that, I’m going to say that I’ll finally get to Z but we shall see.
