JudeA character who would probably kill you in your sleep.

*Since I’ve been reading the Anita Blake,Vampire Hunter (series) by Laurell K. Hamilton lately I’m going to say either Raina or Gabriel. *

The Killing Dance (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #6)

Cardan: A character who seems like a Bad Guy™ but is ultimately more complex than you thought.

The only character that comes to mind is Nova from Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Renegades (Renegades, #1)

 

netflix and books-47

Locke: A character (or plot twist) that made you want to throw the book.

I think the only one I can think of is The Cerulean by Amy Ewing? IDK. It’s been a pretty quiet reading year for me.

The Cerulean  (Untitled Duology #1)

Taryn: A character who deceived you.

Kaname from Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino

Vampire Knight, Vol. 1 (Vampire Knight, #1)

Vivi: A book that was significantly different from the others in its series.

Lake Silence by Anne Bishop. I know it’s technically a different series anyway but it was a lot more mystery and thriller than the other books in the same world.

Lake Silence (The world of the Others #1; The Others #6)

Valerian: A character who just needs to die (or, you know, stabbed).

Again Raina or Gabriel work well for me right now.

The Lunatic Cafe (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #4)

 

17

Oak: A smol™ character you would protect at all costs.

Definitely Nathaniel from the Anita Blake Series. Sorry I have that book on my mind. lol. Doing a re-read.

Narcissus in Chains (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #10)

State of the ARC January 2019 and a look ahead into February 2019

So I have already kind of covered my February 2019 ARCs but I didn’t do it properly and neglected to mention anything about January. So here it is.

 

I did badly. I only got 2 arcs done total and I needed to get like 15 done.

 

Here is the pie chart thing:

meta-chart

As you can see more than half my pie is to read total. Another large chunk is Netgalley to Read and the other one is Edelweiss to read. No large portion for read. 😦

 

For Feb. I have many more ARCS that are due. Let’s see how I’ll do next month. Wish me luck!
