Currently Reading/TBR - And I Darken, The Unexpected Everything (May 2016)

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni and today I'll be showing you the books I am currently reading this month.

As of right now I'm not really into any books. Just a couple minutes ago I finished Storm by Brigid Kemmer. I liked it, but I didn't love it and couldn't connect to any of the characters. The book was a three star read for me. It fell right down the middle and didn't leave a lasting impression.

I am about a tenth of the way through Kiersten White's upcoming YA release And I Darken. I'm liking it so far, but I'm waiting for the story to pick up. Hopefully I will become more interested in the book as the story progresses. And I Darken is a historical fiction where Vladamir is actually a girl. Lada, the main character (aka Vladamir) is a really interesting character. I can't wait to see her become the Vladamir everyone fears!

By the end of the month, I want to be finished with And I Darken and two other novels. I just got The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, and I am so excited! I've loved the two other books that I've read by Matson (Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, Since You've Been Gone), so I have high hopes for this one. I've read five pages or so, and I can't wait until I have more free time.

Last but not least, I want to read The Red Queen this month. I have had it on my shelf for a while, and it's about time that I picked it up. I'm excited to see what the hype is all about, and even though I might not love it, I'll be happy that I gave it a shot. The second book just came out, and I've been hearing better things about the second novel.

So that it was I am currently reading and my upcoming reads for May! What are you currently reading?

Thanks guys for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

Genni @ Ready, Set, Read!


  1. Okay, so I've got And I Darken as well! I have to get into it now, so we can discuss! Lada's not overly likeable but I kind of like that? Is it weird?

    1. It's not weird at all! I don't necessarily like her but I like reading from her perspective! She's so interesting. :D

  2. Ooooh, I've been itching to read And I Darken! I really enjoy the author's Paranormacy series, so I'm looking forward to reading her new one! And the cover itself is absolutely gorgeous too :D

    1. That's why I got so excited when I was able to get it early! I marathon-ed White's Paranormalcy trilogy and absolutely loved it because it was so fun. :D This is a much, much darker story but just as intriguing! It's really stunning!
