What Are You Reading Wednesday

I’m starting a new book in a new series, The Iron Fey. Why? I don’t know, because I like killing myself slowly. Just kidding. I do have a lot of other series’ I need to read/finish but oh well.

I bought The Iron King (The Iron Fey #1) by Julie Kagawa back in the beginning of November, so it hasn’t been on the shelf long, but my friend read it and loved it so now its my turn to judge.

download (1)A QUOTE (one complete sentence) that stood out to me on page 34 is,

‘You mustn’t take revenge, no matter how you feel about the girl. Especially now. There are more worrisome things on the move.’

download (1)WOULD I want to live in this world? Why or why not?

So, I’m still not very sure what the setting is entirely. Right now I know we are in a rural area. Meghan’s family lives on a farm, a pig farm more specifically. I don’t know what state, country, or continent though. I may of overlooked that or it may never of been specified. I have no idea. I tried to google and ending up spoiling a huge part of the story line for myself.

Anyway, I wouldn’t mind living on a pig farm. I actually love pigs. They make good bacon, too.

First Lines Friday

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?  If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

Sometimes, you look back.

He was coming out. I was going in. We moved by each other, ships passing without fanfare the way hundreds of strangers pass every day. The moment didn’t last longer than it took to see a bush of dark, messy hair and a flash of dark eyes.

Summary: don’t think don’t question just do

The anonymous note wasn’t for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not in the habit of reading other people’s mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent, but decidedly—deliciously—it was not.

Before replacing the note—and the ones that followed—in its rightful slot, I devoured its contents: suggestions, instructions, commands. Each was more daring, more intricate and more arousing than the last…and I followed them all to the letter.

Before the notes, if a man had told me what to do, I’d have told him where to go. But submission is an art, and there’s something oddly freeing about doing someone’s bidding…especially when it feels so very, very good. But I find that the more I surrender, the more powerful I feel—so it’s time to switch up roles.

We play by my rules now.


I found this author while searching for new books after reading Meredith Wild’s Hacker series.

The first line is very interesting and by chapter three we have seen this mystery guy twice but have no idea who he is. So definitely intrigued and can’t wait to keep reading!

TBR Tuesday

This week I am going to try to pick up where I left off in a series I read earlier this month.

This week’s TBR TUESDAY is……

Iced (Fever #6) by Karen Marie Moning

Iced (Fever, #6)

Synopsis: From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning comes the first book in her hotly anticipated new urban paranormal trilogy, set in the world of her blockbuster Fever series.

The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.

Dani “Mega” O’Malley plays by her own set of rules—and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the rare humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

Dani’s ex–best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What’s more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux.

When Dublin’s most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club’s ruthless, immortal owner. He needs her quick wit and exceptional skill to figure out what’s freezing Fae and humans dead in their tracks—and Ryodan will do anything to ensure her compliance.

Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin—before everything and everyone in it gets iced.


Discussion: So, I wasn’t a fan of Dani in the first five books. When Dani narrated the story I wanted to flip through until we were back to Mac. I’m not sure how I’m going to like this novel. I also saw a lot of negative reviews about the last four novels in this story. I’m scared y’all.

Have any of y’all read this one?

What are your thoughts on this novel?

Do you think I should read it next or shelf it til a later date?

Can this novel be skipped?

What Are You Reading Wednesday?

I’m going to do this WAYRW a little different than usual. I finished Cinder and And I Darken yesterday and I haven’t had the opportunity to start a new book yet. I don’t have a favorite quote from page 34 and I have no idea what land I’m even about to read about.

I REALLY need to read the books I bought a long time ago before I read the new ones I am looking forward to, so I’m mixing a little of both to save myself from misery. I picked a random book from my TBR shelf that has been sitting there for probably ten years called Princess Ben. For newly purchased books I picked Scarlet, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles.

I don’t know how Princess Ben is going to go. I honestly haven’t even read the synopsis since I bought the book. I’m SUPER EXCITED for Scarlet though. I loved Cinder and I read in reviews from others that the series only gets better and better from here.

I’m going to pull a little TBR Tuesday into the mix and open up some discussion on this post, hopefully!

Have you read Princess Ben?

Did you enjoy it?

Should I try reading it or is it a dust collector/resell?

I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT SCARLET.

Did you love/hate it?

Without spoiling anything, what should I look forward to the most?

This week’s TBR TUESDAY is……

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)

Synopsis: Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.


Discussion: I just finished Cinder (I’m behind on review blogs so it won’t be up for awhile, sorry guys) and I am in love. I can’t believe it took me this long to read the Lunar Chronicles. I am super excited to read Scarlet. I have heard nothing but good things and, apparently, the books only get better from here!

This week’s TBR TUESDAY is……

City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare

City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)

Synopsis: Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who’s becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn’t ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City’s Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.


Discussion: I have a new found love for Cassandra Clare. I just finished City of Bones and I can’t wait to dive into the next installment. I’m current reading the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning so TMI is getting pushed back a little…

The formidable glass-and-steel structure rose from its position on Front Street like a glittering needle threading the sky. There were fifty-seven floors to the Metropole, Manhattan’s most expensive new downtown condominium tower. The topmost floor, the fifty-seventh, contained the most luxurious apartment of all: the Metropole penthouse, a masterpiece of sleek black-and-white design. Too new to have gathered dust yet, its bare marble floors reflected back the stars visible through the enormous floor-to-ceiling windows.

I finished City of Bones last night and I AM IN LOVE. Why have I never read these before? I was so excited I almost started City of Ashes last night, but bed because adult because work. Gross.

Anyway, can’t wait to read this next installment in The Mortal Instruments series!
