Let's talk about what books we are currently reading please include, title and author, genre, quote, and if you like it so far. So whatcha readin'?"If her kindness killed, than she was better off dead than living a cold, unfeeling life where she misered up all her feeling and possessions."
Paranormal Romance
I like the mix of Greek mythology and the paranormal elements but I don't like the couple's chemistry.
"What would you say if I told you I did it for you?" She smiles, and it fills me with wariness and lust. "I would say do it again, my Grim Reaper."
The Arcana Chronicles a Fantasy Dystopia YA series. This one is a collection of short stories that tells the events before the apocalypse from different character's perspectives. Its pretty neat because the story is normally told from the main character Evie's perspective. It was initially put together for the screenplay of the T. V. series.
“I held up my Gray’s Anatomy by way of answering. She huffed. "Why don’t you just watch the TV show instead of reading that big fat book?”
I dont read Contemporary Romance often but I HAD to make an exception this time. The hero is a CEO of an online gaming company. The heroine is a medical student and game blogger she auctions off her virginity online it rubs me the wrong way but I'm not as annoyed by it as I thought I would be and the geeky references! I may even read the rest of the series its called, Gaming the System. This combines my love of video games and romance novels!
"But back at the start, when she'd still been hopeful of winning a small piece of his heart... Abe had held her, teased her, made her believe she, too, could have her own happy ending. That such endings weren't just for beautiful people with perfect lives, but for the broken and scarred too."
Romance
I love Nalini her writing style is beautiful. This couple divorced once the way I see it if it didn't work out the first time it shouldn't work out a second but this book is great. The characters are scarred by their pasts yet are just more beautiful and stronger for it. I want it to work out they love each other so much they deserve to be together.

  • I just finished The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
    “As honest as you can expect a man to be in a world where its going out of style.”
    ― Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep
    “Being a copper I like to see the law win. I'd like to see the flashy well-dressed mugs like Eddie Mars spoiling their manicures in the rock quarry at Folsom, alongside of the poor little slum-bred guys that got knocked over on their first caper amd never had a break since. That's what I'd like. You and me both lived too long to think I'm likely to see it happen. Not in this town, not in any town half this size, in any part of this wide, green and beautiful U. S. A. We just don't run our country that way.”
    ― Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep
    “I looked down at the chessboard. The move with the knight was wrong. I put it back where I had moved it from. Knights had no meaning in this game. It wasn't a game for knights.”

  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business", by Charles Duhigg.

    Genre: Nonfiction, Science, Psychology, Personal Development, Business

    "This is the real power of habit: the insight that your habits are what you choose them to be."

    "Willpower isn’t just a skill. It’s a muscle, like the muscles in your arms or legs, and it gets tired as it works harder, so there’s less power left over for other things."

    This book's about the science behind habits - how and why they're developed, and the ways they can be changed. I really love it so far; it's actually changing the way I view my life. While reading it, I've been more self-aware than ever about the collection of habits I've acquired over the years, both good and bad. I want to start applying what I've learned to make some positive changes, and make my life easier on top of that. If you can trick yourself into changing a bad habit into a good one, and don't have to rely solely on will power to keep it going, that's a great advantage.

    It's also written very well, and is research and evidence-based, which is important to me, while not being dry or boring. It's a fascinating book so far, and not difficult to read through.

    --------------

    "Lead", by Kylie Scott.

    Genre: Romance

    "That smile could move mountains. It could also break hearts."

    This one's purely a guilty pleasure read, lol. It's about
    a rockstar, lead singer Jimmy Ferris, who's battling addiction and unexpectedly gets a new assistant, a girl named Lena, who's supposed to keep him out of trouble. He's had 5-6 others try to deal with him and quit, but his band thinks she could be up to the task.

    I only just started reading it, but I really like her smart-ass attitude and sass, along with her clearly caring and empathetic personality. Plus, he has that "bad boy", surly attitude and sexiness thing going on. They clash, and so far she wants to help and is trying to keep it professional, but his antics are making her seriously consider quitting.

    We'll see how the rest goes!

    Its a science fiction about a survivalist trying to get back to his family, when an emp goes off while he is on a road trip.
    Kindle tells me im only 30% through but so far my favorite quote is when a girl is freaking out over some dead bodies and says she was prepared to not eat, sleep outside, & go to the bathroom out side, but she wasn't prepared for mad max
    And his response is "Listen to me. Do I look like Mad Max"... pause..."I've already killed three people since this thing started."

My adventures have all taken place outside the book... like travelling to weird locations... serving in the military... becoming an engineer... spent time as a fireman... and many many other things.

  • I'm currently on book two of Charlie Higson's The Enemy series. It's a dystopian zombie apocalypse-esque novel that takes place in London where the illness only affects people 16 years of age and older. So it's young kids fighting to survive. It reminds me of a hybrid between the Hunger Games, the Maze Runner, and the Walking Dead. Very good read and well written, even though it is considered a teen novel.
    "There was a reason these boys were still alive, though. Something made them stronger than the other kids, the ones who had died in the early days, who had simply lain down and given up, unable to cope with the terrible things that were happening in the world. These boys were survivors. The will to live was stronger than any other feelings.”

  • Wow you're reading a lot of books simultaneously :o

    I'm currently on "Hollow City" by Ransom Riggs which is the second sequel to the Miss Peregrine series and I like it a lot - it's a very exciting & creatively written read but overall there's other fantasy series I've enjoyed more like the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare - probably my favourite author in the fantasy genre.

    My favourite quote however is "I never remember nice dreams; only the bad ones stick." - it's a very simple line but so relatable for me, somehow it just stayed in my memory.

    I've also started "A Little Life" by Hanya Yanagihara a while ago which I must admit I've mainly bought because of the many positive reviews it's cover is plastered with but I can't say it's that "astonishing" or "addictive" so far but quite possibly I just haven't read enough of it yet.

      If you want another series similar to Mortal Instruments you should look for books in the Urban Fantasy sub-genre. Honestly I stop after book 1 in the Mortal Instruments series back in High School the whole my boyfriends my brother thing freak me out immensely. That was probably because the story suck me in so much I felt her panic. I will have to try again someday.
      So this book blurs genre lines a bit (Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance are kissing cousins after all) but you could try Angel's Blood by Nalini Singh. It has mystery, supernatural elements (both angels and vampires are in it), and a kick ass heroine.

    • 3mo

      Yeah I read a lot. I had a hard time meeting the word limit when writing the question I kept exceeding it.

    • 3mo

      I'll look into that, thank you for the suggestion!
      & yeah I feel you, I tend to get really excited when talking about good books, too :D

  • I just finished The Girls, a fictionalization take on how a young girl couldve gotten caught up in a Mansonesque cult. Pretty good!

    I'm also listening to the second book of The Magicians series by Lev Grossman on audiobook.

    I think the next book I am going to start reading is American Prometheus about J. Robert Oppenheimer, who is considered the "father of the atomic bomb."
