'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

WWW Wednesday #8/ Waiting on Wednesday #6
Wednesday's meme is hosted over at Should Be Reading, a meme which I'm actively taking part in in which we show off the books we've read, we're reading and going to read :).
The rules are simple. All that has to be done is to answer the following three questions:
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
I'm reading 13 by Kelley Armstrong. The finale of the Otherworld series *sob*. I finally made myself read it - I just wasn't ready to accept that this was the end of the series. I didn't really enjoy Spellbound so I thought maybe it would be easy to let go, but so far this book is amazing! Come on Kelley, one more?
What did you recently finish reading?
I recently finished reading Two and Twenty Dark Tales. It is a book which I received for review from the ever faithful Net Galley and I absolutely loved it! Some of the stories were a bit eehhh, they just didn't go anywhere, but the majority were incredibly inventive and gave me the spooks! Review to come soon :).
What do you think you'll read next?
Conspiracy in Death by J. D. Robb. Me and my Nan made a trip to the fantastic shop; The Works and they now have four books for £5! Heaven! They can move shop more often if they're going to up their bargains haha. My Nan grabbed this book (as well as two other crimes and a Dystopian novel; Maze Runner for me) and gave me this bad boy. It's the 8th in the series so I'm hoping this isn't going to be a 'must-have-read-the-others' kinda book!
"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine , which allows us to show off the books we cannot wait to get our hands on :). My choice this week is:
Theresa Romain - Season for Surrender
Honor Among Rogues Alexander Edgeware, Lord Xavier, has quite a reputation—for daring, wagering, and wickedness in all its delightful forms. But the wager before him is hardly his preferred sport: Xavier must persuade a proper young lady to attend his famously naughty Christmas house party—and stay the full, ruinous two weeks. Worse, the lady is Louisa Oliver, a doe-eyed bookworm Xavier finds quite charming. Yet to refuse the challenge is impossible—he will simply have to appoint himself Miss Oliver’s protector…
Mischief Among Misses Louisa knows her chance for a husband has passed. But she has no desire to retire into spinsterhood without enjoying a few grand adventures first. When Lord Xavier’s invitation arrives, Louisa is more intrigued than insulted. And once inside the rogues’ gallery, she just may have a thing or two to teach her gentlemen friends about daring…
I requested this awhile back on Net Galley and I'm reeeaallly hoping to be accepted! It sounds so good so fingers crossed for this one!
