This is just a week of new organization and blog posts for me! Today’s is “Watcha Reading Wednesday!”
I currently have three reads going on (not usually my style but here we are).
The first is a reread of JLA’s fourth Lux book, Origin. I may or may not have just finished it last week, but I finished Oblivion yesterday, the first three books in Daemon’s perspective, and just had to keep going. I’m also majorly in love with Daemon, so I’m happy to keep reading!
In case you don’t know, the Lux series is a YA fantasy that deals with an alien species called the Luxen. Katy, the MC, moves to WV and meets a peppy and loving Dee and her hot, and not so friendly brother Daemon. The longer Katy is in WV, the more weird things she notices and the closer she becomes to Dee (and Daemon despite his many protests). Katy learns some life changing information and then shit hits the fan over and over again. But, Daemon is doing his best to protect his family and Katy, even though the rest of his family doesn’t want him to help Katy. These books made me cry, laugh, rage, and I may or may not have gotten jealous a few times…I like to dive right in as if I’m the MC…what can I say? Anyway, highly recommend this series!
The second book I’m reading is an adult standalone and spinoff of the Lux series and it’s called Obsession (which perfectly describes how I feel about these books).
This book follows Hunter, whom we meet in Origin briefly and again in Oblivion. He’s an Arum (another alien) and works for the DOD. He doesn’t follow what the other Arum want and is extremely alluring and may be my new favorite. This book is VERY adult in the best ways possible and I am going to be sad when I finish it (probably today). The Lux series talks so much shit about the Arum, they are enemies after all, but it’s been interesting to see it from a different perspective. JLA’s writing is something that sucks me in and I can’t stop reading her books. I don’t know what’s going to happen when I finally read all of her current books and have to wait for more!
My third current read is the Prison Healer by Lynette Noni.
I have the beautiful Fairyloot edition of this book, but I’ve been listening to the audiobook while I work on my Etsy shop. I can’t say that I’ve grasped every detail because I am multi-tasking, but I am enjoying the premise so far. I’m only about 100 pages in and I love the plot and characters. I enjoy the magic aspect that was slowly woven into the storyline. I also am obsessed with the cover and purple sprayed edges…just saying! Since I am only doing audiobook with this one, it is taking me longer, but I plan on listening to more of it today!
That’s all for now! I’m hoping to finish at least one of these tonight, to finish June with 18 books read! That may be my biggest month yet!
What books are you currently reading? I’d love to chat!
