Random Ramblings: Currently Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Neyra @ Darkest Addictions Book Reviews every Monday. It's where you talk about the book(s) you are currently reading for the week and whether or not you're enjoying it, how you heard of it, and who recommended it to you.
This week I am reading Duty & Desire by Anju Gattani, Wake by Abria Mattina and Heaven Should Fall by Rebecca Coleman. I know, I know. So many books at once lol. Bare with me :p
Duty & Desire: I am currently 42% done with this book. Gosh *gathers thoughts* I didn't think I was going to like this book and don't ask me why, cause I have no idea lol. Maybe it's the title.. or maybe it's the cover -___- I received this book for review from Holly over @ FMB Blog Tours. So far, I like it. It's about a girl, Sheetal, who was set up to marry a man she didn't want to marry by her parents. So, she left the guy she did love to marry this douche bag (seriously, he's a douche...so far, anyway), just to please her parents. Sheetal is now living with said douche and his weird family and is pretty much forced to abide by their rules and do what they say at all times. How F****'d up is that? It's both frustrating and understandable at the same time. I want Sheetal to rebel and leave his sorry-sack-of-shit ass, but on another level, I totally get that the decisions you make don't only stem from what you want, but what you believe is right based on how you were raised and the cultural background you come from. And I can totally relate to that.
Heaven Should Fall: I am currently 37% into this book. I was given this book for review by Alissa Letkowski over @ BookTrib. Again, I'm not too big a fan of the cover, though the little girl is adorable. I just think the cover could have been a lot better. Anywho, I really like this book. It's pretty much realistic fiction. So far, from what I can gather, it's about three different people, Jill, Cade and Elias. Jill is Cade's fiance and is pregnant. Jill dropped out of college and moved into her fiance's family's home (which is total chaos) and sacrificing her education to to go through this pregnancy. While Jill is pregnant, she is also trying to reach out to Cade's brother, Elias, who returned home from the war 3 years ago and is a total monotone state. I can't say too much on that because the story's just now getting deeper into that but, I can tell you that it's good. I can't help but wait to see what Elias is going to do, is he going to snap? What? The only person he's opened up to is Jill. So I'm looking forward to seeing how everything plays out.
Wake: I am currently 10% into this book. This book is about 650+ pages long. I thought I read so much more then 10% lol. >.< I received this book from Holly over @ FMB Blog Tours for review. This book is really good. Seriously, I loved it when I stopped at 2% xD It's about about a boy named Jem who is in remission from cancer (though, he wont say what kind of cancer he has) and a girl named *checks book* ahh, her name is Willa. Geez, you would think I could remember everyone's name if I like it so much >.< Anywho, Willa is a bit of a mystery still. Shes pretty much the only person who talks to Jem like he's a normal person and doesn't look away from him or avoid eye contact with him. Her story still isn't clear, but I gather she's trying to change or running from her past? I honestly don't know at this point. This book has plenty of banter to go around and it just has me laughing my ass off.
Well, that's what I'm currently reading :) What are you reading? Do you love it/hate it?
