Weekend Reminisces #12

Hey, it's Friday, the start of the weekend.

So... lets focus on what's new for me.

I seem to have these sporadic times of super busyness and then short periods of lull. Currently, I'm in a lull. That is to say, that for the moment I'm on top of all my work and able to take a short break.

So what did I add to my shelf recently?

Sad to say... nothing.
I've had little time to browse ebooks on Kindle and even less to browse the book stores. I seriously need to amend this situation.

What did I finish reading?

Empire of Storms
(Throne of Glass #5)
Sarah J. Maas

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

A little long but a great read and so, so much action.
My rating: 5 out of 5

A storm is brewing. Is Stella really safe in Thunder Basin? And will Chet be her shelter, or her downfall ...?

What music am I listening to?

Waiting on Wednesday # 98 ~ A Million Worlds with You (Firebird #3) by Claudia Gray

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I'm waiting on:

A Million Worlds with You
(Firebird #3)
Claudia Gray 

Expected publication: November 1st 2016
(Yes, the wait is not very long... only a few days)

A million universes. A million dangers. One destiny.

The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite Caine’s hands. Marguerite has been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud since she first traveled to another universe using her parents’ invention, the Firebird. Only now has she learned the true plans of the evil Triad Corporation—and that those plans could spell doom for dozens or hundreds of universes, each facing total annihilation.

Paul Markov has always been at Marguerite’s side, but Triad’s last attack has left him a changed man—angry and shadowed by tragedy. He struggles to overcome the damage done to him, but despite Marguerite’s efforts to help, Paul may never be the same again.

So it’s up to Marguerite alone to stop the destruction of the multiverse. Billions of lives are at stake. The risks have never been higher. And Triad has unleashed its ultimate weapon: another dimension’s Marguerite—wicked, psychologically twisted, and always one step ahead.

In the epic conclusion to Claudia Gray’s Firebird trilogy, fate and family will be questioned, loves will be won and lost, and the multiverse will be forever changed. It’s a battle of the Marguerites . . . and only one can win.

I have the first two books in this series and have still not read them because I was waiting on this, the final book in the trilogy. So glad I can start the adventure real soon.

So, what are you waiting for?
