TELL ME TUESDAY is a feature that oozed from a post Twitter Party fried-brains stupor I suffered a while ago. 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 me!

Go have a peek at their newest book grabs and tell them yours.


Remember the book I was going to start after A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC (ADSOM was magnificent btw)? 


Too bad the writing was awful because I was looking forward to reading about twin succubi. Oh well.

Right now I am reading SERAFINA AND THE BLACK CLOAK.

It is a Middle Grade about a girl living secretly in the Biltmore Estate in 1899. There is a paranormal aspect to it, and I would only recommend it for the oldest ages of the MG crowd because it is extremely SCARY! I love the historical inclusions, and what a terrific cover.


I am also going to start THE SIREN, today. I had it pre-ordered and it popped up on my Kindle Fire carousel at midnight.

It is by my tied for favorite vampire author MR Graham (Anne Rice is the other). This is not about vampires in the traditional sense. It has an emotion sucking alien! At only 182 pages is it consideted a novella? Anyway, I am excited to read it because my love of all things extraterrestrial is extreme. This ebook is only 99¢ if you want to get to know this author's writing.


The ebook of VICIOUS by V.E. Schwab (it is V.E. not Victoria, so it is Adult Fiction) was $2.99 yesterday and I snapped it up!

After reading and twirling about ADSOM, I think this will be my next read. I thought it was a standalone, but it is book one in a series.

Or maybe...

I just received the Red Death duology in a trade last week. I read the first book MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH ages ago, and this book has been out since 2013. I Ravenously ate up every word of MotRD, but was having trouble getting into DANCE OF THE RED DEATH when I borrowed it from the lbrary last year. I hope having the time for a leisurely read will remedy that problem.

What are you reading? Tell me!


  1. Sorry to see that you had one big DNF! Thankfully, the cover doesn't reel me in anyway so I don't feel too bad :P And Vicious is awesome! One of the best adult works from Schwab I've ever read and so incredibly complex too! Hope you like it (I have no doubt you will)

    1. I am thinking I will love it too! Her writing style fits my tastes to a tee. I was hoping it was a standalone so that I wasn't starting another series, but it's Schwab so I will suck it up. :D

  2. It's funny. I'm not sure Vicious is actually a series? I know Goodreads makes it look like it (but I think that's because of the prequel). But I really hope it is a standalone. It makes it a much better book that way. You'll see what I mean. :)

    1. There is a prequel? Should I read it first? I will be happier if it is a standalone!


Thank-you for dropping by! I love to chat, so comments get a lot of love.
