Howdy dowdy readers!
How’s the week going? I’m doing well, just making a ton of changes here and there that I decided to make after reading How to Market a Book. Here’s hoping it makes a difference!
Before I get off topic, back to the post!
Every Wednesday I participate in a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is: a monster.
When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn’t recognize her.
As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?
Opinion so far:
I’m not quite a quarter of the way through, but so far it’s a good read.
I will say, things are very different from the first book, and I’m not 100% sure how I feel about that so far. There are good takeaways but I’m also feeling slightly underwhelmed also.
Only time will tell! Hoping to get through this read sometime over the weekend if possible.
Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. Home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all…
Love, love, LOVED it!
This first graphic novel in the series became an instant favorite of mine. I loved the characters and the depth they had, the grim portrayal of things, and of course, magic keys! What’s not to love? Highly recommend this one!
Graphic Novel Review: Locke & Key Vol 1: Welcome to Lovecraft
Buddy Read & Rant: Locke & Key Vol 1: Welcome to Lovecraft
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
Up next on my immediate TBR is The Uncanny Raven Winston, book two in the Cassie Black trilogy by Tammie Painter. I adored the first book, and am so grateful to have received an ARC copy from the author. I just know it’s gonna be great!
After that is the next volume in the Locke & Key series! Misty and I had such a great time reading the first one that we’re in it for the long haul! I’ll be prioritizing these as much as possible going forward because that’s how much I’m loving it so far.
Last but certainly not least is *gasp* another buddy read! Gigi and I will be reading The Good House by Tananarive Due. I’ve read her short story Patient Zero and loved it, and we both wanted to read something that was adult horror, so this seems just perfect. If my prior experience with Due carries on the same way, this is going to be quite the thriller!
Wish me luck on my reading journey, and best of luck on yours!
That’s a Wrap!

Maybe the “slightly underwhelmed” feeling will go away the further you get into Never Fade. I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Good House; I’m sure you and Gigi will like it!
Yeah, that’s what I’m hoping for at least. I’m still debating on whether or not I’ll finish the series.
Me too! Fingers crossed it doesnt disappoint!
