Jaime Loves Stuff : It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Sheila from Book Journey is the brains behind the "It's Monday, What Are You Reading?" linkup. 

 

 Last night, I finally finished A Storm of Swords and yep, in true GRRM style- we have death.  One thing I love about this series is that even though you KNOW (i.e, have read the spoilers) what will happen, it still takes you by surprise.  This installment? Two thumbs up.  I am not sure when I will read A Feast for Crows.  I tend to space out books in a series.  Well, I do when the book is extremely intense and the first three in this series are very, very intense and I needed recuperation time.  No lies! 











As for this week, I will continue with Simon R. Green's "Something From the Nightside"
Now, I haven't accepted any ARCs in awhile just because I don't want to commit to anything but I did accept three from Sourcebooks.  The one I will start working on this week is from James Whitfield Thomson called "Lies You Wanted to Hear".  It will be released next month and I am pretty excited. 












 Here's the synopsis from Sourcebooks:
Alone in an empty house, Lucy tries to imagine the lives of her two young children. They have been gone for seven years, and she is tormented by the role she played in that heartbreaking loss. You can hardly see a glimpse of the sexy, edgy woman she used to be. Back then, she was a magnet for men like Matt, who loved her beyond reason, and Griffin, who wouldn't let go but always left her wanting more. With shattering, unthinkable turns that will wrench every mother’s heart, this suspenseful story probes the issue of how well you know the person you married. How much can you trust them with your heart— and with your future? -

  4. I learned while reading the GOT series, not to get too attached to a character! I know what you mean about the recuperation time needed. Have a great reading week.

    1. You are so right! As soon as you get attached, you are signing their death warrant. The crazy thing about his books- out of nowhere, the character that was utterly despicable becomes less despicable (i.e., Jaime Lannister). However, I am so glad my favorites have survived so far: Dany, Tyrion, and Jon. Good grief, I feel like I am forgetting some! Who are some of your favorites?
