Current Reads: Poison Study

This week I am hurrying to finish some library books before the Wednesday return date… Gulp!

I am currently reading

Poison Study
Poison Study

(Study #1)
By: Maria V. Snyder
Genre: YA High Fantasy
From: The library

Choose: A quick death… Or slow poison… About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She’ll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.

First things first, I really don’t like this cover! There are so many better versions, and the character on this one is white washed… Anyway, I’m right about at the halfway point, and I’m liking it so far. It is an enjoyable fantasy romp, but nothing too unique. So many reviews of this book have been so positive – many people loved this book – that I was expecting it to be super awesome. Perhaps I’ve just read too many fantasy books, so this kinda blends in? It might still surprise me, though!

The Drowning Girl
The Drowning Girl

By:
Caitlín R. Kiernan
Genre: Horror
From: The library

India Morgan Phelps — Imp to her friends — is schizophrenic. She can no longer trust her own mind, because she is convinced that her memories have somehow betrayed her, forcing her to question her own identity.

Struggling with her perception of reality, Imp must uncover the truth about an encounter with a vicious siren, or a helpless wolf that came to her as a feral girl, or neither of these things but something far, far stranger…
