Feature & Follow: Current Reads

Today's question from Parajunkee and Alison is one I'm always ready to talk about!

What are you reading right now? How do you like it?

I'm usually a one-book person, but you caught me at a time when I'm reading a few! I'm almost finished with Libba Bray's The Diviners. I'm really enjoying it. Kind of has an epic feel. It's really long, but very entertaining. Look for my review next week!

I started Raven Boys, by Stiefvater, and decided to quit and read something else. I was having trouble getting through a slow start -- but I'm convinced a different attitude will allow me to enjoy it. I'm going back to it this weekend.

I've been reading King's 11/22/63 for a while now. It amazes me how King can write such a long, meandering book and still make it riveting. I love his story-telling. He's a master. I'm about 3/4 through, so I think I'll be picking up the pace for the finish soon!

I'm listening to Daughter of Smoke & Bone and enjoying it. But I usually like to listen to more long, meandering books on audio because it takes me so long. This is taking me too long, and it's too exciting. I can't wait to find out what happens, and might just have to pick up the print copy to finish. The hype is justified.

How about you? Leave me a link so I can see what you are reading (and add some more to my never-ending TBR!)  Have a great weekend!

  1. I have the print copy of The Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I only read one chapter though. I might continue it one day. New follower.

  2. I cannot wait to get to The Diviners! Raven Boys has been one of my favorite reads so far this year. I loved 11/22/63, and I recently listened to Daughter of Smoke and Bone on audio and I had the same problem, I came so close to buying a print copy so just so I could finish it quicker! I think you're right, longer, slower books are probably easier to listen to, or at least cheaper, so I'm not fighting the urge to finish the book too quickly!

  6. I listened to Daughter of Smoke and Bone too and it was awesome! I think reading it wouldn't have been the same, and though it was a painful wait it's well worth it! I hope you like it! :D

    1. I thought Raven Boys started out really slowly. I got about 100 pages in and lost patience. I'm going to try again, because most reviews rave about this, and I'm certainly a fan of Stiefvater.

  11. I just finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I CANNOT wait for November 9th when the second book comes out.

    And I absolutely agree about King's book... I'm reading the same one, but I didn't even list it because I've been reading it so long. -_-
