  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…
 As well as the random question of the week:
THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Do you read more than one book at once? Why, or why not?


I'm currently reading...

Clockwork Prince, by Cassandra Clare
It's hard for me to say what I think about it so far. I'm about 350 pages through, if I'm remembering correctly, and I still have mixed feelings. I think it was a bad idea to try to read The Infernal Devices coming off of a Mortal Instruments hangover, because now I can't focus on any of these new characters. I just want to know what happens in City of Heavenly Fire! I think it might be more well-written than The Mortal Instruments, but I just cared more about the characters in The Mortal Instruments. I could change my mind though, in Clockwork Princess! (I'm Team Will by the way!)
Do you read more than one book at once? Why, or why not?
I am only able to read more than one book at a time if it's for school purposes. If I have one book to read on my free time/a book I enjoy, and then one book that's for required reading, I generally find I have to read two at a time to keep myself sane!
Under normal circumstances, I have difficulty fully investing myself in a world if I'm reading two books at once! I'm jealous of people who can do this with no problem. And I also wish I could be able to keep all of the details from the books straight in my head, but I guess it just isn't meant to be.
I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day, and if you are in the U.S., I hope you enjoyed the day off today. Have a great week, and let me know what you're currently reading, if you want to!


  1. I'm really liking the Infernal Devices so far. I'm about 100 pages into Clockwork Princess! I'm the opposite. I've only read City of Bones so I'm liking Infernal Devices better. I find Clary very whiny. I've been told it gets much better over the next couple of books. I might give it a go later.

    1. I didn't really like the first couple of books very much, of the Mortal Instruments. Hopefully if you do give the next ones a go, you like them better! It's great you're liking the Infernal Devices. I really enjoyed the ending of Clockwork Prince, and I just started Clockwork Princess today. Happy reading!

  2. It's all a matter of what works for oneself: happy reading:)

    1. Indeed it is! Thank you, you as well!
