Random Reads

Random Reads is a meme where we pick a random book from our shelf to read within the month.

Weeeee! This meme sounds like a lot of fun and is something I think I really need! My TBR mountain is out of control!! I had a lot of fun with this meme last month so I decided to join in again.

Bookish Discussion: Reading One Book vs. Multiple Books at a Time


As bookworms, we basically breathe books and probably don't go a day without reading, right?

She reads books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live. Good record :D

But, what type of reader are you? I mean, do you just read one book at a time, or do you find yourself reading multiple books at once?

Blurb:

In this humorous version of Greek mythology, Hades, King of the Underworld, tells the true story of Odysseus and his ten-year journey home from Troy...

You might think you know all about The Odyssey, but until you read Get Lost, Odysseus!, you don't know the truth. With Kate McMullan's trademark blend of humor and details from the original tale, Get Lost, Odysseus! tells the Greek classic in a brand-new way. The Trojan War is over, but now Odysseus has to find his way home to Ithaca...and in typical fashion, he's angered Poseidon enough that the sea-god has decided to make his journey miserable (if not impossible). But Hades has a soft spot for the long-gone warrior, so even if he's sworn to Poseidon he won't help Odysseus directly, he might be able to pull a few strings...

My Rating:

This book was a lot of fun, as always. Get Lost, Odysseus! tells the story of Odysseus on his way back home to Ithaca after the Trojan War, a retelling of The Odyssey, if you will. The story is narrated by the Greek god Hades, and he just give it a really fun twist! There a lot of great characters including gods and monsters like Polyphemus... HA! Idjit ;) And Cerberus! Totally adorable!

Blurb:

The hunter becomes the hunted. . . .

West Grayer is done killing. She defeated her Alternate, a twin raised by another family, and proved she’s worthy of a future. She’s ready to move on with her life.

The Board has other plans. They want her to kill one last time, and offer her a deal worth killing for. But when West recognizes her target as a ghost from her past, she realizes she’s in over her head. The Board is lying, and West will have to uncover the truth of the past to secure her future.

How far will the Board go to keep their secrets safe? And how far will West go to save those she loves? With nonstop action and surprising twists, Elsie Chapman’s intoxicating sequel to Dualed reveals everything.

My Rating:

You know, when I first read Dualed I didn't think there would be a sequel because the first book wrapped up SO nicely! But when I found out about Divided I was very curious to see what it was all about, seeing as how West had already defeated her Alt. But oh my gods, this book was SO good! I was really pleasantly surprised.
