What Are You Reading Wednesday

Is it really Wednesday? I’ve been off all week by one day. I even forgot trash day! Seriously I’m kind of losing my head this week. Any minute now the Red Queen will bark out orders to finish me off.
Well let’s jump right into thing shall we?

What I’m Reading:

34215534.jpgThis week I’ve picked up another ARC I received by indie author L.A. Shine. He kindly sent me a copy of his debut novel, Shadow.

“Ethan West had it all, great parents, a younger sister who he adored, an amazing girlfriend, best friend, and a college football scholarship. 

That was until his entire world turned upside down when his family was brutally murdered.

Fast forward five years and Ethan is the best demon hunter alive, he will stop at nothing to find the demon that killed his parents even if it kills him.”

A book about a badass demon hunter? Uhm, yeees! When I first read this blurb I thought “whoa. That got dark quick.” Already I’m really liking the story. Even though it’s short, there’s a mystery that grips your attention and holds it, keeping you on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait to reach the end and at the same time, I wish there was more to it!

Excerpt

Everyone turned their attention from me to Joshua, everyone except that one guy, so I took my chance grabbing a piece of chalk and began writing on the board as my old best friend spoke, “Mr. Caboloki won’t be teaching us this year,” he began the silence quickly escalated into nervous chatter while he tried to finish but before he could the guy next to him, the one watching me tapped Joshua on the shoulder even pulling on his shirt a bit desperately trying to get his attention. “what is it Erin?” Joshua asked seemingly annoyed at his friend for interrupting him. But all Erin did was point to the board with “Mr. Ethan West” written on it.

I heard a few snickers before the man jumped over the desk, yup i made him angry, “Damian Kologe,” he screamed as he got closer and closer to my face, “my family’s demon hunting blood dates back as far as the Marie’s and if your so sure your Ethan West, prove it, princess!”

Well great, I’m not even a student and the first day of school I start a fight. Just my luck.

They all seemed too scared to answer so I continued making a little show of putting my arms up in a what motion, “Oh come on, this is fighting class, what is it without a little practice? Don’t just stand there like pansies.”

What I’m Watching:

HPI don’t think I really need to explain why I’m watching this. Sometimes you just need a little Harry Potter in your day ❤ am I right?

 

 What I’m Listening To:

Since I’ve been quite the busy bee lately, juggling from one wedding to the other, I’ve decided I need music that has a good beat to it. Which means I of course called on my old friend………

And that’s what I’m to this crazy, busy, not slowing down anytime soon week!

    Reading: With You Always by Jody Hedlund.

    A Riveting Look at the Orphan Train from Historical Novelist Jody Hedlund

    When a financial crisis in 1850s New York leaves three orphaned sisters nearly destitute, the oldest, Elise Neumann, knows she must take action. She’s had experience as a seamstress, and the New York Children’s Aid Society has established a special service: placing out seamstresses and trade girls. Even though Elise doesn’t want to leave her sisters for a job in Illinois, she realizes this may be their last chance.

    The son of one of New York City’s wealthiest entrepreneurs, Thornton Quincy faces a dilemma. His father is dying, and in order to decide which of his sons will inherit everything, he is requiring them to do two things in six months: build a sustainable town along the Illinois Central Railroad, and get married. Thornton is tired of standing in his twin brother’s shadow and is determined to win his father’s challenge. He doesn’t plan on meeting a feisty young woman on his way west, though.
