We Go Again
I've just finished reading We Go Again by Michael Cargill and my review will be up on Thursday.  I'm currently reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion.  Next, I think I'm going to read Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake.  However, I have a few Goodreads First Reads on the way so if any of them come then I will probably move on to them.

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What is your favorite lesson learned, or quote, from a recent book you’ve read?

My favourite quote that I have recently read is from Awaken (Abandon #3) by Meg Cabot:

"And this time, when the storm comes, instead of running from it, I'm going to face it head-on.  I hope it's ready for me."
A few of you might recognise this quote from last week's Teaser Tuesday but I think it's just a brilliant quote and it has stuck with me all week.  I think it's a great attitude to have when coping with challenging situations.  It makes me want to face my own challenges head on and I find it really motivating at the moment as I have a few job interviews and there is one that I really really want.

  1. Great quote. I feel the same way.

    I am jealous of anyone who can manage reading this much on a regular basis. Good for you. Hope you enjoy all your reads.

    1. Thanks. I'm just finding myself with a little extra time on my hands just now. I probably won't always be able to read as much.

  3. I like that quote, thanks for sharing it. I haven't read anything by Kendare Blake yet, but I do have a hardcover of Mortal Gods sitting on my shelf. If you read Anna Dressed in Blood, I hope you enjoy it. :)

    1. Just looked up Mortal Gods. It looks amazing - quite different to Anna Dressed in Blood. Might have to put it on the TBR!
