Wednesday Catch-Up 25th May 2016

Every Wednesday we are linking up with WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is hosted at Taking on a World of Words and asks 3 questions: What are you currently reading?, What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you'll read next?

Clare:

MischiefMistressRavishedRendezvous
I enjoyed Every Other Day I thought it was a fun and exciting read. I was less immersed in Demon Road which I think was just not for me, it was promising but I never really liked the characters. I then read The Angel Experiment which was my first James Patterson and I was definitely pleased with it. I do want to continue the series but since I am saving for a new laptop book buying may be on hold for a while! I found Zeroes to be an odd one - I liked the concept but I did not like the characters so I am still unsure about it as a whole. I then finally read The Hidden Oracle which I have been excited for. It was just as funny and engaging as I expected and I look forward to the series  continuing. I then re-read both Regency Buck and The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer which are two of my favourites! And then, since I was in a lazy reading mood I re-read the Regency series by Stephanie Laurens which only took me a couple of days. I also re-read some of my Amanda Quick novels which were fun.

Planning to Read Next:
A School for Unusual Girls (Stranje House, #1)Struck (Struck, #1)Shaken (Struck, #3)
I am planning to read A School for Unusual Girls next. I haven't heard much about this book but the premise intrigues me. I will then read Struck and Shaken by Joss Stirling who is one of my favourite authors when it comes to light reading.

I see you and I had a similar experience with Zeroes! I just felt like the book didn't start in the right place. It was like there was a prologue missing which would have introduced me to each of the characters and made me care about them :-(

That's exactly it. The characters needed more of an introduction, by the time I actually started to care about them it was the end of the book!

I hope you enjoyed 'Maximum Ride.' I've only heard about these books but never read one. From what I can see, they have a huge following! Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

I did enjoy it, I've heard mixed things about the end of the series but I am definitely interested enough to continue!
