Musing Mondays (18)

Musing Mondays is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

What are you currently reading? Would you recommend it to others? Is it part of a series (if so, which one)? What are you thinking about it? What book(s) would you compare it to, if any?

Right now I'm reading The Awakening, which is the second book in Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers series. It's not the best thing I've ever read, but it's keeping me entertained and not frustrating me with horrendous grammar and purple prose (so it gets bonus points!). I would definitely recommend it to people who are fans of paranormal fiction, although fans of Twilight might bemoan the lack of sexy male characters.

I'm not sure if I can really compare it to any other books... but some aspects of the story do remind me a little of The X-Men.


  1. Luved that book! I've read the first two and am waiting for The Reckoning (it's all out from the library will have to wait) I love the series it's really good. Hope you enjoy it :)

  2. I have wondered about starting that series??
    I am reading Shanghai Girls by Lisa See for my book club right now, it is a little slow but I will finish it for sure.
    BTW, I wanted to direct your attention to this post on my blog. I really think you would be a great host for this and wanted to make sure you that you saw it. Email me if you are interested -

  3. Love that book too! I have the third on lying here on my bookshelf and I cant wait to start reading it. :P

  4. I have never read anything by Kelley Armstrong, but have read several recommendations of her books recently.
