WWW tackles 3 questions:
What are you reading?
What have you finished?
What will you read next?
I apologize if I say this every week, but oh my goodness.. Is it really Wednesday already? Time is flying by.
My main book right now is Hidden Bodies (You, #2) by Caroline Kepnes. It’s about an antihero and, in short, I now understand the concept of not being able to look away from a train wreck. I enjoy the author and how she writes the story, but I don’t understand or like the main character at all. Is that the point of having an antihero?

I am listening to Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies, #1) by Isaac Marion at work. I watched the movie when it came out, but, thankfully, I can only remember the beginning of the movie. I’m at a point in the book where I don’t fully understand or connect with the main character and hope that he doesn’t get himself killed, but am looking forward to seeing how this book continues. I can’t believe I let myself get distracted and stopped where I did. (52%)
I finished The Girl In The Ice (DCI Erika Foster, #1) by Robert Bryndza. My initial impression of the main character was proven incorrect, which I appreciate. My disconnect with the story is with people who are so stubborn to get their way that they screw themselves over in the process. Overall, it’s interesting and I did not guess the killer beforehand. I will admit a bias with the guess as I read reviews from readers stating that were wrong in their guesses so I chose not to guess the obvious people.

I finished America: The Book (The Audiobook) and, quite frankly, was not impressed. This is one of those instances where the book does not translate well into an audiobook. Reading the physical book would likely raise my rating for a couple of reasons: the audiobook only comes in abridged form and the physical book is set up like a mock textbook.
Say HELLO to a four-day weekend without kids.
Sequels galore. I plan to read Killer Instincts (The Naturals, #2) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Demon Glass (Hex Hall, #2) by Rachel Hawkins, and (hopefully) Spell Bound (Hex Hall, #3) by Rachel Hawkins. These three have the first in the series to blame. The Naturals is essentially the Criminal Minds of teenagers. Hex Hall is your typical girl is a witch, never knew, gets sent to magic boarding school, type of deal. I adored them both.
Constantine: The Hellblazer Vol. 1: Going Down (Constantine: The Hellblazer, #1) by Ming Doyle, Illustrated by Riley Rossmo is a relaunch of John Constatine’s solo series. ARC to be released 16 Feb 2016 (Received via Edelweiss)
