WWW Wednesdays (14) & Waiting on Wednesday (3)

First, a bit of shameless self-promotion! This week, I'm participating in Novel Publicity's Social Media Whirlwind Tour to advertise Terri Giuliano Long's book In Leah's Wake. Monday's post was a Twitterview with the author, today's post is an excerpt from the book, and tomorrow post is an interview with the author. Very interesting stuff, be sure to check it out! The self-promo part: if you go to Terri's blog, you can vote for the bloggers participating in the tour, and I'd be ever-so-grateful if you'd go and vote for Ramblings of a Daydreamer. It would only take a second, and it would mean a lot to me. As incentive, I've been thinking of holding a 200 follower giveaway (I'm getting so close!) and if I win the Amazon gift certificate, that would help fund the giveaway. So please, please go vote for me!

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.  All you have to do is answer these 3 questions:

1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you'll read next?

Simple right?  I love to read and love to know what other people are reading!

What are you currently reading?
I'm on page 39 of Brightwing by Sullivan Lee, an ebook I'm reading for review, and I just finished a paperback, so I'm about to start Dead Over Heels by MaryJanice Davidson.
What did you recently finish reading?
Tonight, I finished Falling in Love With English Boys by Melissa Jensen. I should have the review up Saturday, I think. Before that was That Day in September by Artie Van Why (review will be up next week, along with a guest post from Artie), Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber and Rules of the Road by Joan Bauer. Since I'm such a slow reader, I've been picking shorter books lately, so I've been getting more read!

What do you think you'll read next?
I have a few to choose from: Until the End of Forever by Shannon Hart, and Love at Absolute Zero by Christopher Meeks are paperbacks I received as part of blog tours happening September and October. I also finally got Paranormalcy from the library and I'm anxious to find out what all the fuss is about. And, if all that wasn't enough, I have 4 or 5 ebooks for review and a couple of review books coming in the mail. With all that, I'm not 100% sure what's next, but I love having all these books!

What have you read lately?

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to showcase upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.   This week I'm waiting on...
The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton
Publication Date: September 27th, 2011

Synopsis: Debut novelist Kiki Hamilton takes readers from the gritty slums and glittering ballrooms of Victorian London to the beguiling but menacing Otherworld of the Fey in this spellbinding tale of romance, suspense, and danger.  The year is 1871, and Tiki has been making a home for herself and her family of orphans in a deserted hideaway adjoining Charing Cross Station in central London. Their only means of survival is by picking pockets. One December night, Tiki steals a ring, and sets off a chain of events that could lead to all-out war with the Fey. For the ring belongs to Queen Victoria, and it binds the rulers of England and the realm of Faerie to peace. With the ring missing, a rebel group of faeries hopes to break the treaty with dark magic and blood—Tiki’s blood.
Unbeknownst to Tiki, she is being watched—and protected—by Rieker, a fellow thief who suspects she is involved in the disappearance of the ring. Rieker has secrets of his own, and Tiki is not all that she appears to be. Her very existence haunts Prince Leopold, the Queen’s son, who is driven to know more about the mysterious mark that encircles her wrist.
Prince, pauper, and thief—all must work together to secure the treaty…



I love, love, LOVE faerie books and this sounds so good! I really like the concept, and like many others, I can't wait to read this book!

  1. Well, huh. I'd seen the countdown for this book in several places, but lazy me hadn't looked at what it was about yet. I'm definitely going to put it on the TBR now. :)

  2. I've seen this one around but haven't decided on if I want to read it yet. have you read Clare Dunkle's The Hallow Kingdom series? It's fantastic. More on the side of goblins, but almost the same diff...sometimes. Good choice!

    Here’s my WOW!
