What are you currently reading?
Nothing at the moment. Oh wait, no, I did start something, but only got a few pages in. It's a book I got from BookMooch a few weeks ago, The Sweeter the Juice, which I feel I must have put on my wishlist years ago after seeing someone post about it on 50books_poc or something. It seems interesting, but as a physical book rather than ebook, it's probably going to take longer to get through.

What did you recently finish reading?
I finished reading a book. A whole other book. In like four days! Whaaaat?

The book I finished reading is the one I mentioned in my last reading post as something I was considering next, Francis Hardinge's Cuckoo Song. It was so good! I got totally sucked in and it was really hard to put down. I don't think I've been this into a book in a long time.

I'm really glad I went into it unspoiled because the beginning was just so intriguing and I was right there with Triss trying to figure out what the hell was going on. I was at first a little disappointed with the answer, but soon got caught up in the rest of the book.

Non-spoilery summary: It's set in England after World War I. Eleven-year-old Triss falls into the river while on holiday with her parents and younger sister Pen, and when they pull her out she can't remember anything and strange things start happening. Her parents reassure her she's fine, but her sister now seems to hate her. Triss doesn't know what's wrong with her and fears she's sick and/or going crazy.

More spoilery summary! But really I think it's best read without knowing anything. )

My (spoilery) impressions ) Anyway, it's really good!!

I also read vol. 10 of Ore Monogatari!!

What do you think you'll read next?
I downloaded vol. 11 of Ore Monogatari!! today and since I'm still in the mood, that will probably be my nighttime reading tonight. I also found that 7 Seeds 31 is out, which I may read right away or not. I love that series so much sometimes I hold off on reading new volumes because I know I'll be left wanting more once I finish it. Oh, and there was a new volume of Shimura Takako's Musume no Iede as well, so there's that.
