What Are You Currently Reading? (2)

Hi, friends! I enjoyed writing this post so much last time I think I might want to do it once or twice a month--depending on how much I'm reading and whatnot. I never got around to making a new graphic, but oh well. 

If you're new, let me explain the concept of this post a little (though it's kind of self explanatory):
I'm going to talk about what I'm currently reading. Where I'm at in the book(s), what I think so far, etc. Why? Because I love talking about books! And it's especially fun to talk about books I'm excited for. So this is like a double whammy opportunity. :)

Now, for what I'm reading this weekend...

Sworn to the Shadow God by Ruby Dixon

Sworn to the Shadow God (Aspect and Anchor #2)Adventure.

It's what my boring life is missing, so when I fall through a portal into another world, I'm excited. Here, I'm important. Here, I'm special.

I find out just *how* special when I meet Death.

Yup. That guy. He's been exiled to the mortal realm to work through his flaws, and he's just as spoiled and awful as you'd think. Rhagos, the Shadow Lord, is arrogant and rude and controlling and demands to get his way. He's selfish. He's impossible.

He's also utterly gorgeous. Magnetic. Lonely. And strangely protective of me.

Thanks to a magic bond, I now serve him as his anchor to the mortal realm. It means that I'm his conscience, his guide...and the target for any assassin or glory-seeker. After a few days of this, I'd rather go home than continue on this 'adventure'. I need a way back to Earth, and fast.

As the world falls down around us and we're hunted simply for existing, I find myself wondering what it'd be like to serve the lonely god of all ways. To kiss him. To touch him. To bed him.

Except...I'm supposed to be finding a way home, not trying to kiss Rhagos. No matter how tempting he is. No matter how much he stares at my lips.

No matter how much I want it.

How much I've read: 3 pages

Thoughts: I am so bummed that I haven't gotten to read much of this book yet. Y'all remember how excited I was to read this, right? How book 1 was my favorite book of 2019? BUT. Right after it released I got sick (just a cold--I'm fine now), then I spent most of a weekend with my nephews, then I work full time during the week and tend to be too tired after getting home lately to read much and bam! Now it's like three weeks later and I haven't even made a dent in this book. I'm hoping to get a good chunk read this weekend, however. I'm in a reading mood! And I love Ruby Dixon's books!

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1)Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life—working hard all day and partying all night—until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.

Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose—to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.

As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion—one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.

With unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and page-turning suspense, this richly inventive new fantasy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom—and the power of love.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas launches her brand-new CRESCENT CITY series with House of Earth and Blood: the story of half-Fae and half-human Bryce Quinlan as she seeks revenge in a contemporary fantasy world of magic, danger, and searing romance.

How much I've read: 0 pages

Thoughts: This one is kind of a cheat because I'm not TECHNICALLY reading it yet. I'm just peeking at it. Because I'm excited! It's finally here! And it's BEAUTIFUL. And I've had a couple of friends who have been tiptoeing their way through it for like weeks if not months now and I'm so damn curious. So yeah. Maaaaybe I'll actually, officially read this one after I finish Sworn to the Shadow God? We shall see ;)

So that's it. That's what I'm reading...and kind-of-but-not-really reading this weekend! Now, please! Tell me what you've been reading lately! What are you reading this weekend??
