First of all, my apologies for the hiatus in posting this week.  I’ve been suffering a miserable cold and eye infection so I’ve not really been feeling much like blogging.  On the other hand, audiobooks meant I was still able to enjoy my reading without hurting my eyes.  I was able to get through both The School for Good and Evil, a good vs evil fairytale by Soman Chainani and Cress, book three in the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.  Both of these are excellent books narrated by fantastic narrators and I will do full reviews once I get rid of this cold.

Added to my library this week

I had been hearing good things about The Maze Runner by James Dashner, but it was not one that grabbed me so much that I wanted to buy it.  I waited patiently to come to the head of my library’s ebook queue and downloaded it to my Kobo today.  

Cress, in both Kindle and Audible formats.  This is the week of release of the third book in the Lunar Chronicles and as I adored the earlier books in the series I had this on preorder.  I listened to it straight through and loved it – Meyer does it again.  A full review will be forthcoming.

The Guard – A Selection Novella by Keira Cass, which I picked up in Kindle format.  This also was released this week and I had it on preorder.  It was a fun, interesting story, told from Aspen’s viewpoint.  However, as I am not exactly Aspen’s biggest fan, I didn’t really warm to it.  I don’t care how much you claim to love your girl, if your actions are consistently putting her in danger for no good reason, that doesn’t sound like love to me.  I did enjoy the sneak peak chapter of The One that was included.  This series while not brilliant is a real guilty pleasure for me and I look forward to reading the rest of the book. 

So onto the main event.  The Vampire Academy audiobook giveaway!  The winner is… drumroll please….  Mindy Demars!  Congratulations!  Please drop me an email at evelynne@scottishereader.com so that I can send your codes to you.
