I haven’t done a “Currently Reading” update in awhile! Right now I am a bit overwhelmed by the fact that I am in the middle of 5 books, but I think I’ve got it covered. A 4 day weekend is a great time to spend reading (except I wasted yesterday by spending 5 hours watching season 2 of The Wire and 5 hours of HGTV’s Flip or Flop. Hey, sometimes you just need to take a break!)
The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

I’m actually listening to this one. It is the second time I tried to read it. The first time was a year ago and it was with a physical book, but I put it down and never went back to it. Now, I really only listen when I’m in the car or doing stuff around the house. The MC, Meghan is really annoying in this book, so it’s making it hard for me to really enjoy it.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

This is my January pick for the classics challenge I am participating in. This month’s theme is “A classic you’ve always wanted to read” and while I can’t say it was at the top of my list, it was a book that I’ve always had interest in. Mainly I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I’m switching between the new audiobook and actually reading, but I find it much easier to listen. If I have to read it I get so bored. It’s finally getting towards the end so I’m happy about that.
Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan
I’m super sad to report that this is taking me a very long time to read. The plot is very slow moving and I think a lot of relationship drama is also keeping me from enjoying it as much as I did the first two books. We’ll see.
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
This is my “Series to Start” pick for January. Again, I tried reading this book a few years ago, got pretty far and put it down. I didn’t “DNF” it but I never went back to it. So here I am, trying again. I know it’s about to get interesting, but right now Elisa is pretty annoying.
Rebel Bully Geek Pariah by Erin Jade Lange
This is an ARC I have. I haven’t really been interested in reading any of my assigned ARCs this month, but this one is ok. The characters make a lot of stupid choices, but apparently there is a twist coming up, so I’m going to keep on reading. Hopefully it gets better.
What are you guys reading this weekend?
