Booking Through Thursday asks:
What are you reading right now? What made you choose it? Are you enjoying it? Would you recommend it?
I am a poly-reader, I read more than one book at a time, at all times. I don't understand how people can read just one book LOL I just finished reading Rachel Vincent's My Soul To Take and am currently reading Christine Warren's The Demon You Know and Terry Brook's Amageddon's Children, amongst others. I was given Amageddon's Children by a friend's housemate and started reading it because I liked the blurb and the cover. I wouldn't have bought it, but I am really enjoying it's dystopian story. I am only recently remembering how much I love dystopian fiction, so I think I will be getting back into that in the future. I would definately recommend it, from what I have read so far. My Soul To Take was quite enjoyable and I will be looking for the sequal. It is YA fiction, and rather than copying everyone else's love of vampires and werewolves (has anyone else noticed how UF and PNR for teens rarely has other shifter species?) Rachel Vincent has used celtic mythology for the basis of her story. I won't go into the details, because I think my cluelessness as to the species added to the suspense, but it was really refreshing! I had read of those supernatural creatures in celtic mythology and fairy tales, but I can honestly say I have never read of them in fiction as a main character, or even more than a passing reference! I will be reading the sequal, and it has also reminded me why I like Rachel Vincent, so I may go back to her UF series soon. I do recommend this book to others who enjoy YA fiction. I can't really comment on Chrisitne Warren's The Demon You Know, because I only started it last night, and I, it is embarrising to say, fell asleep whilst reading it. I woke up to realise there was a book on my pillow, my radio was still on, and I had eyeshadow smeared over my face. So I really can't comment on the merit of The Demon You Know ;-p
