What I’m Reading Wednesday

I may as well admit defeat now on my Summer Break Reading Challenge. I’m never going to read everything in the 6 days that are left, not being able to read more than a page without being sick seriously set me back! But never mind, I’m sure there’ll be another I can take up now that I can read again.

So, I’ll be honest, there aren’t any ‘What I Finished’ books for this week. But there are two ‘What I’m Reading’ books and they are:

Dark Space by Marianne De Pierres

I will admit that I am struggling with this one, which is a shame because I was really looking forward to it. I’m about 100 pages in and feel worryingly close to giving up unless it picks up soon. I’m confused with the characters, confused with the worlds, utterly baffled by all the different species that are not in the slightest described or explained and I find the written language quite clunky and hard to follow. I’m reading it in small doses (a chapter or two at a time) purely because any more than that hurts my head.

I will persevere as I have heard great things about it and I would hate to miss out just because I couldn’t hack the beginning.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

I’m almost half way through this YA werewolf romance novel and loving every page. It’s fast-paced and a little bit different from most werewolf stories. I think part of the reason I am enjoying it so much is the real ‘wolfy-ness’ of the wolves, which is a bonus for me and my not-so-secret wolf obsession. (Seriously, you should see my house…)

Aside from the furry side of things I love the characterisation and I want to live in Grace’s house, the story moves swiftly but without becoming too predictable or dull.

What I’m Starting

Once I’ve finished Shiver I will read the second instalment Linger and, if I have time, I will start to read Wolfsangel by M.D.Lachlan – another book I have been really looking forward to reading.
