TELL ME TUESDAY is a feature that oozed from the fried brains of myself and my best blogging buddy, after a mind twisting Armchair BEA Twitter party. It is a weekly, or bi-weekly feature (depending on your reading style), where you tell us what you are reading now, and why, and what you will be reading in the future from your tbr pile, and why. I am oh so curious why people read what they read. So tell us!

Have a peek at what they are reading, too!
As per my last TMT you all know that I am not reading the steampunk story right now (but I will finish it). I started reading Seraphina, so I could get Shadow Scale read and reviewed by the publishing date, but although I do adore the book and the writing style, I started getting bogged down for some reason, so I took a break. I ended up starting a side story, In the Shadow of the Mountains, to an Adult vampire novel, The Medium, I received from Goodreads First Reads last year.
It is free as an ebook. The author let me know about it because I had given The Medium, five stars. The Medium was the first vamp story I had read and liked since reading the original trio of Anne Rice books many, many years ago.
I don't reccomend reading In the Shadow of the Mountains first, even if it is considered a stand alone because if you don't already know the characters, the first 20% of the book would be boring; boring enough to dnf, actually.
These books are collectively known as The Books of Lost Knowledge. I purchased an enovella The Wailing for $1.99. I found out it is about one of the characters common to the other two stories, but set before both of those books. I also downdloaded two free short stories from Amazon. I have no idea if they have anything to do with the Lost Knowledge books. Plus, The Medium and the new book coming out, The Mora, are their own thing as the Luminosity books. CONFUSING! After I read them all, I should be able to figure things out. Ha!
I don't know if I will read The Wailing after this, or go back to Seraphina.
