Happy New Year!! Not my first post of the year, but my first What Are You Reading? I'm going to try to be more consistent this year with this post. I missed quite a few Wednesdays last year. I hope you'll join me!
What are you Reading? Let me know what your current read is, what you recently finished reading, and what you plan on reading next!
I'm currently reading Sanditon* by Jane Austen and Kate Riordan. This book is based on Andrew Davies' TV adaptation of Jane's unfinished novel. I'm curious to see how closely Kate Riordan followed the show. I'm definitely going to watch it when it comes to the states. How about you?
Here's what I've read since Christmas.
I finished listening to Nefarious: A Pride and Prejudice Variation* by Nicole Clarkston. I love Nicole's stories, but to be honest, this wasn't one of my favorites. I didn't like how angry Darcy is, nor did I like the way he treats Jane. I also wasn't fond of Georgiana in this story. I know many people have loved it, but it just wasn't for me. - 3 stars
I also read H2O (The Rain, #1)* by Virginia Bergin. This is a fascinating premise. What if the rain was deadly? And what if that rain seeped in the ground and ruined the water supply? There would be nothing to drink!
Being a YA novel, the protagonist was more concerned about her social life and her phone. This annoyed me a little, but then reality hits her, and she learns what she needs to do to survive. I really enjoyed the story, and I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series! - 4 stars
I also read Black Autumn* by Jeff Kirkham & Jason Ross. This post-apocalyptic was more realistic. It's about a group of Special Forces vets and preppers who have a compound ready for if the world falls apart. And it does fall apart. I enjoyed this story. - 4 stars.
I'm going to re-read Lady Susan* by Jane Austen for my reading group. That's a short story, so I'll probably start The Storm (The Rain, #2)* by Virginia Bergin too. :)
