I’ve recently started another of my Netgalley ARCs: A Gentleman In Moscow by Amor Towles. This book has been on my radar for a while now and was actually a Goodreads Choice Awards nominee last year, so I was stoked to find this version being offered at Netgalley. I enjoy reading historical fiction and it’s been too long since I last read a book set in Russia… I’m not far at all, but the beginning is interesting although a bit unusual.

My teaser (1%):

“Though the Count had greeted them in this manner a hundred times before, both responded with a wide-eyed stare. It was the sort of reception one might have expected when arriving for a dinner party having forgotten to don one’s pants.”

I’m still kicking myself for not picking up Rebel Of The Sands sooner, but at least it does mean I can read the sequel straight away… I was honestly a bit shocked my request for Traitor To The Throne was approved, but I’m not complaining. 😉 Especially since I LOVED the first book. I’ve heard mixed things about it, but I’ve fallen in love with the worldbuilding, magic, main characters and Alwyn Hamilton‘s writing style. I’m not too far into the sequel yet, mostly because I still have to write a review of the first book and don’t want the two books to be mixed up. But I can’t wait to continue this one as soon as I’ve finished my review! 😀

My teaser (10%):

“He chose the second one. But I was faster than his stupid brain could work. I dropped to my knees a second before the gun went off, the bullet burying itself harmlessly in the wall behind me.”

I’ve been away for the last couple of days and somehow thought I had posts scheduled until today… But apparently I was wrong. Oops?! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend… I personally didn’t read much while I was away, but I have a great excuse: one of my best friends got married last Saturday! :D

I picked up my ARC of Little Girl Lost by Carol Wyer on the drive over, and while I didn’t have time to finish it yet, I’m really enjoying this psychological thriller so far. Lots and lots of messed up characters and twists, and I will be looking forward to find out exactly what is going on.

My teaser (38%):

“They are clearly talking about me. One of them is right. I don’t want to be pretty. I don’t want to look nice. I know what happens to pretty girls.”

One of the books I’m currently reading is The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. I have been wanting to read another of his books for a while now, and the Beat The Backlist challenge is the perfect excuse to pick up my title. I’m not really that far into the story yet and I won’t finish it before the end of today… Hopefully before the weekend though!

My teaser (54%):

“In this moment, he’s never been more right. I’m the one here who’s least wanted. Without another word, I put the car in gear and drive off down the road.”

I’ve just started reading one of my latest pending Netgalley ARCs, Blink by K.L. Slater. It’s coming out next month and it’s definitely a title I have been looking out for… It’s still early days but I’m looking forward to be reading more of this story later today! It sure sounds promising so far and I’ve heard great things about it.

“Then suddenly I find myself back again, staring at the ceiling an trying to make sense of what has happened to me and when it might go away. When I might move and speak once more.”

I’m currently reading one of my pending Netgalley ARCs, Those Who Lie by Diane Jeffrey, which is coming out the end of this month. It’s turning out to be a very enjoyable psychological thriller with an interesting amnesia angle and lots and lots of twists! The main character is not that likeable, but the whole story is without doubt intriguing.

I’ve actually already finished Mosquitoland over the weekend, but I enjoyed it so much I couldn’t resist sharing a quote. This title has been on my TBR pile for way too long now, and the Beat The Backlist challenge was the perfect excuse to finally pick it up. I was more than pleasantly surprised by it and I will be picking up David Arnold‘s other novel ASAP.

My teaser (10%):

“No sooner was it gone than a mightly army of mosquitos took its place. Millions and millions of them, buzzing aimlessly, digesting hot blood, suspended in midair over the salty water.”
