WWW Wednesday: What Am I Reading? #amreading

WWW Wednesday is a meme from Sam at Taking On A World Of Words

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve had this ARC for months, but was just now able to get to it.  I’ve missed these characters so much!  If you enjoy heists, found family, and characters that worm their way into your hearts, I highly recommend this series.

They are each other’s fiercest love, greatest danger, and only hope.

Séverin and his team members might have successfully thwarted the Fallen House, but victory came at a terrible cost ― one that still haunts all of them. Desperate to make amends, Séverin pursues a dangerous lead to find a long lost artifact rumoured to grant its possessor the power of God.

Their hunt lures them far from Paris, and into icy heart of Russia where crystalline ice animals stalk forgotten mansions, broken goddesses carry deadly secrets, and a string of unsolved murders makes the crew question whether an ancient myth is a myth after all.

As hidden secrets come to the light and the ghosts of the past catch up to them, the crew will discover new dimensions of themselves. But what they find out may lead them down paths they never imagined.

A tale of love and betrayal as the crew risks their lives for one last job.

The first book in this series was an easy 5 stars for me, and I was saving the second to read on vacation.  Another easy 5 stars.  But with the perilous situations these authors left some of my favorite characters in,  I don’t know how my heart will survive waiting another year for the next book!

Our heroes are back… kind of. From the bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in the epic series about a squad of misfits, losers, and discipline cases who just might be the galaxy’s best hope for survival.

First, the bad news: an ancient evil—you know, your standard consume-all-life-in-the-galaxy deal—is about to be unleashed. The good news? Squad 312 is standing by to save the day. They’ve just got to take care of a few small distractions first.

Like the clan of gremps who’d like to rearrange their favorite faces.

And the cadre of illegit GIA agents with creepy flowers where their eyes used to be, who’ll stop at nothing to get their hands on Auri.

Then there’s Kal’s long-lost sister, who’s not exactly happy to see her baby brother, and has a Syldrathi army at her back. With half the known galaxy on their tails, Squad 312 has never felt so wanted.

When they learn the Hadfield has been found, it’s time to come out of hiding. Two centuries ago, the colony ship vanished, leaving Auri as its sole survivor. Now, its black box might be what saves them. But time is short, and if Auri can’t learn to master her powers as a Trigger, the squad and all their admirers are going to be deader than the Great Ultrasaur of Abraaxis IV.

Shocking revelations, bank heists, mysterious gifts, inappropriately tight bodysuits, and an epic firefight will determine the fate of the Aurora Legion’s most unforgettable heroes—and maybe the rest of the galaxy as well.

It Came From the Sky has some awesome reviews, and I’m interested to see how these brothers pull off the hoax.

From the author of The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett and As You Wish comes the unforgettable story of the one small town’s biggest hoax and the two brothers who started it all.

This is the absolutely true account of how Lansburg, Pennsylvania was invaded by aliens and the weeks of chaos that followed. There were sightings of UFOs, close encounters, and even abductions. There were believers, Truth Seekers, and, above all, people who looked to the sky and hoped for more.

Only…there were no aliens.

Gideon Hofstadt knows what really happened. When one of his science experiments went wrong, he and his older brother blamed the resulting explosion on extraterrestrial activity. And their lie was not only believed by their town―it was embraced. As the brothers go to increasingly greater lengths to keep up the ruse and avoid getting caught, the hoax flourishes. But Gideon’s obsession with their tale threatened his whole world. Can he find a way to banish the aliens before Lansburg, and his life, are changed forever?

Told in a report format and comprised of interviews, blog posts, text conversations, found documents, and so much more, It Came from the Sky is a hysterical and resonant novel about what it means to be human in the face of the unknown.

  2. I’m glad to hear that Aurora Burning was a 5-star. I liked the first one in the series quite a bit (I think I picked it up after reading your review). It’s fun to see what you’re reading, Teri. Have a great day and stay safe.

  3. Oh, darn. I was hoping none of these would end up on my ever-growing TBR pile, but instead, ALL THREE of them sound like stories I’d love! Tsk. Nothing to do but bite the bullet and add them to the list.

    I love this feature of yours, anyway, regardless of whether I need the extra additions or not, Teri. Always interesting to see what you’re reading. 🙂 Thanks!

    1. I know what you mean, Marcia. Every day I get an email from Bookbub and I hope there’s nothing I’m interested in. Obviously, I could just delete the email without opening it, but that’s impossible – for me, anyway. Be warned, the first two listed are second books in a series.

  4. ‘I don’t know how my heart will survive waiting another year for the next book!’ – I know exactly what you mean, sometimes I can’t bare to sleep and not get to the next chapter, let alone wait a year!! Hopefully they’ll be other books to distract you during your wait! Take care and happy reading! 😃

  5. I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying The Silvered Serpents! I’ve got the ARC, too, and I’m looking forward to digging into it. 😀 I’m so glad you loved Aurora Burning, too! I can’t wait to start the series. I held off on the first one, because the second one was coming out so soon, and now I need to get my hands on it so I can read them both already, darn it! I’ve got an ARC of It Came From the Sky, too, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing what you think of it!

    1. Sounds like we have similar tastes, Sammie! I’ve seen several on your blog that I’ve read or want to read also. You’ll love the Aurora series – those characters are something. But waiting for the third book will be painful.
