What Are You Currently Reading? (5)

It's been a few weeks since I last made a post like this. Last time, I shared four books I was considering picking up next. Since then, I've read three of those four books! So now I feel like it's time to share what's next for me as we head into the weekend!

But first, my most recent read...

Crave by Tracy Wolff

Crave (Crave, #1)My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.

Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.

Which could spell death for us all.

Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.

How much I've read: 592 pages (the entire book)

Thoughts: THIS BOOK MADE ME SO HAPPY. I started it the day after the Midnight Sun announcement, and it did exactly what I wanted it to do--soothed the Twilight-shaped hole in my heart. It's definitely its own thing, but with enough nods to the series I love that I was on cloud 9. Plus. Man. That ending. I cannot wait for book 2!!

Now, next for me...

Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin

Blood & Honey (Serpent & Dove, #2)The hotly anticipated sequel to the New York Times and IndieBound bestseller Serpent & Dove—packed with even steamier romance and darker magic—is perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas.

After narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Dames Blanches, Lou, Reid, Coco, and Ansel are on the run from coven, kingdom, and church—fugitives with nowhere to hide.

To elude the scores of witches and throngs of chasseurs at their heels, Lou and Reid need allies. Strong ones. But protection comes at a price, and the group is forced to embark on separate quests to build their forces. As Lou and Reid try to close the widening rift between them, the dastardly Morgane baits them in a lethal game of cat and mouse that threatens to destroy something worth more than any coven.

How many pages I've read: 0

Thoughts: I haven't officially started this yet, but I AM starting it this weekend. A few of my best friends who also were lucky enough to land e-ARCs and I are going to buddy read it, and I'm so excited! Serpent & Dove was one of my top favorite reads of last year (and also of all time, tbh), so I'm kind of bouncing off the walls looking forward to diving into this one and spending time with Reid and Lou and all the characters I love. Will it hurt me? Probably. BUT IT'LL BE SO WORTH IT I KNOW IT.

Now I want to know! What are you reading this weekend? What do you think of what I'll be picking up?? :)
