I still have a lot of pending ARCs, but I’ve decided to just read Jodi Picoult‘s Small Great Things first. I had already started it (finally!) last week, but I didn’t make much progress until yesterday. I had forgotten what the story was going to be about exactly, so I was pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of race problematics and racism as a topic. Very strong start so far!

My teaser (4%):

“For a moment, I honestly don’t understand. And then it hits me with the force of a blow: they don’t have a problem with what I’ve done. Just with who I am.”

Another Netgalley ARC this week and without doubt a title I’ve been looking forward to: The Red Hunter by Lisa Unger. Not only is the cover breathtakingly gorgeous, but the story itself sounds really promising so far. I will definitely be looking forward to continue reading this one today!

My teaser (9%):

“To see myself like that; it was odd. An out-of-body experience. And, yes, very, very careless. I’d done my recon. How could I have missed that camera?”

I’ve just started another of my thriller ARCs: What Doesn’t Kill You by Ed James. It’s actually the third book in the DI Fenchurch series and one I’ve been looking forward to, especially since the first two books have been such solid thriller reads. It’s still early days, but I’m having a feeling this is going to be another winner as well as a fast read!

My teaser (8%):

“The door shuddered open with a groan and a man blinked out into the summer night, blond hair framing his Anglo-Saxon face, almost a perfect rectangle. His face was lined with anger as well as laughter.”

I’m probably the last person on earth to read this (modern) classic, but somehow I never had the chance to actually pick it up. Both the Beat The Backlist challenge and Reading Through The Centuries challenge are a great excuse to finally read The Color Purple by Alice Walker. I’ve only just started it, but I’ll be looking forward to be finding out why so many people seem to love this story.

My teaser (6%):

“I spend my wedding day running from the oldest boy. He twelve. His mama died in his arms and he don’t want to hear nothing bout no new one.”

Another pending ARC before I finally pick up one of my own again… I’m currently reading a travel memoir: The Yellow Envelope by Kim Dinan. I enjoy reading non fiction and I love anything that has to do with travel, so I just had to request a copy as soon as I saw it mentioned. I’m not to far into the story yet, but I’ll be looking forward to continue it today.

My teaser (10%):

“At the end of the day, the money itself is just paper. What gives the whole experience meaning are the thoughts, emotions, and feelings that come with giving the money away in ways that make you smile and make your hearts sing.”

YESSSS!! I’m finally reading A Conjuring Of Light by V.E. Schwab… I’ve been wanting to read this third and final book ever since I finished AGOS last year and it was my nr. 1 most anticipated release this year. My ARC mountain prevented me from picking it up straight away, but I decided to let myself give in as a birthday present. And what a wonderful present it was! I’m loving every single minute of this book so far, although I’m kind of fearing it will break my heart more than once and I don’t want it to be over… Shades Of Magic is probably one of my all time favorite series.

My teaser (16%):

“God be with you,” said Bard dryly.

“What?” he asked, confused.

“Nothing,” she muttered. “Just try to stay alive.”

I added Jeff Zentner to my list of new favorite authors as soon as I finished The Serpent King, and Goodbye Days has been one of my most anticipated releases this year. I couldn’t believe my Netgalley request for this title was actually approved! This version is due next month and I was going to read other ARCs first, but I just couldn’t resist temptation any longer. I’m literally flying through the pages and the writing style is just as good as his debut!

My teaser (6%):

“I squint against the dazzling light while I rummage for my keys and consider how blithely bright the day is. The spinning world and the burning sun don’t care much whether we stay or go. It’s nothing personal.”
