I think I’m in a reading rut right now. I’ve been reading Winterspell by Claire Legrand for about a week and a half now and it just isn’t holding any interest for me. But I look at my friends’ reviews on Goodreads and all the people I have similar tastes to in regards to YA paranormals loved this book. So what is my problem?!?! I decided to start Burying Water by K.A. Tucker to see if that would “move” me. Nope, only a tiny shiver. So then I started Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones and that one had me dancing right through to 16% in one sitting. Now we’re getting somewhere. I just don’t know what to do about Winterspell!!! I’m at 69% right now. Any suggestions? I was thinking of taking detailed notes and setting aside the book for now.
Soooo, we received a box of ARCs from Baker & Taylor this week at work 🙂 Actually, the bottom three books are the ones I snagged this week. The top one is an older one I finally decided on reading. And I already have the digital of A Thousand Pieces of You but I kind of wanted the physical to read and no one wanted it so I let the greedy hag out to play. There were quite a few really great books in the box and I found some books I hadn’t heard of yet. I’m especially looking forward to reading Winter Falls.
The Wonder of All Things by Jason Mott
A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1) by Claudia Gray
Winter Falls (Twin Willows Trilogy #1) by Nicole Maggi

If you ignore some of the other crap on my kitchen table/second school desk, you’ll see I’ve displayed my recent purchase of Beth Revis’ The Body Electric w/ accompanying swag plus the bookstore’s t-shirt that I couldn’t resist purchasing.
This is a little indie series favorite of mine. It’s a YA paranormal with a ton of action and the writing is pretty good. I’ve been waiting a year or two for this sequel so I was happy to stumble on it!
