  1. Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, book 1) by Laini Taylor
  2. And so it was that the golden godson swore his oath on a blacksmith’s anvil instead of the angel’s emerald.
  3. Um… Maybe if I could live in Weep instead of Zosma because I don’t fancy living in a place that doesn’t let girls being librarians or scholars or pretty much anything else! The universe as a whole appeals to me, however.

  1. The Impostor Queen (The Impostor Queen, book 1) by Sarah Fine
  2. The Valtia raises her arm, and the crowd parts to allow the men through. They stumble up the steps and throw themselves at her feet, their chests heaving.
  3. I honestly can’t even say. I’m 5 chapters in and I feel like I still know absolutely nothing about this world! It’s either really poor writing (re: world-building) or really quality writing (re: putting me in the main character’s mindset). Only time will tell I suppose!

  1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
  2. His pleasure in music, though it amounted not to that extatic delight which alone could sympathize with her own, was estimable when contrasted against the horrible insensibility of the others; and she was reasonable enough to allow that a man of five and thirty might well have outlived all acuteness of feeling and every exquisite power of enjoyment. She was perfectly disposed to make every allowance for the colonel’s advanced state of life which humanity required.
  3. Only in theory. And if I could leave whenever I chose!

  1. Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, book 3) by Maggie Stiefvater
  2. Even thinking about the pit made long-ago venom hum and burn in his throat; effortlessly he conjured the image of warning-striped insects prowling the thin skin between his fingers. He had nearly forgotten how horrifying and compelling it was to relive the moment.
  3. Oh, of course. Who could resist a world with modern conveniences and magic and masterful sass? Not me!

  1. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle, book 2)
  2. Though he had been dead for quite a while and by all rights should appear more ghostly, he was always rather living-looking when standing on the ley line.
  3. Um, hell yes. Who wouldn’t? Admittedly I’m not a boy or rich, so my life wouldn’t be as exciting as any Raven Boy’s, maybe I could get in with Blue’s psychic family or something.

Just a note before I do the WAYRW prompts: I know my WWW Wednesday post from earlier said I was currently reading the second book in the Cold Awakening Trilogy, but I just happened to check my account at the public library shortly after making that post and discovered that Frostblood is due back tomorrow with a couple people already having it reserved. So, if I want a chance to read it without having to wait at least a month, I have to read it now. I’m about 35% in so far according to Goodreads and if I’m lucky I can get it all done in time for the husband to return it for me tomorrow. Then, back to Crashed and the Mech-heads!

  1. Frostblood by Elly Blake (Frostblood Saga, book 1)
  2. His palsied hand trembled as he tried each key, until one of them opened my ankle cuff with a decisive snick.
  3. I’m a little less than halfway through at this point and I still haven’t decided… I like the fantasy aspect and would enjoy living in a world with that, but it doesn’t seem like a world it’s own inhabitants would choose at this point. Not to mention, knowing myself and my husband as I do, I’d be a Frostblood in love with a Fireblood and I don’t see that going well for the two of us in the current state of upheaval! (Also I’d be forced to kill anyone who tried to turn him in for being a Fireblood, and I’m not sure I’d even feel guilty about it. So best that we stay out of that world for now, huh?)

  1. Skinned by Robin Wasserman (has been republished as ‘Frozen’)
  2. The doctor’s voice was cold. “There’s nothing to put back. There’s no body to go back to. The body of Lia Kahn is dead. Be grateful you didn’t die with it.”
  3. I’m only about halfway in. I wouldn’t mind living in that world, as long as I didn’t have to associate with Lia’s friends and family… I’d love to chill with Quinn. And I’d probably be one of the people who volunteered for the download.

  1. Psych Major Syndrome by Alicia Thompson
  2. Andrew was right. We probably wouldn’t have any problems if I didn’t go out of my way to create them.
  3. No. I do not want to live in Leigh’s little world… Any of her little worlds. Also I do not want to live anywhere Andrew lives. I almost didn’t do WAYRW this week because I was still on page 19 of the book, but now I’m glad I did because I can point out that I was COMPLETELY RIGHT TO HATE THE BOYFRIEND ALREADY!

  1. The Tale of Elske by Cynthia Voigt (Tales of the Kingdom, book 4)
    Also published as Elske
  2. On this road they saw some other men, fishers and farmers Elske was told; some of the men were accompanied by women whose hair was wrapped around with colored cloths. These men and women stared at Elske, in her fur boots and wolfskin cloak, but when she stared back and them they looked away.
  3. Yes! But no. But yes, but no, but yes. God I love the Kingdom so much, and I love the characters, but everything south of the Kingdom is so brutal and I find it fascinating, but I would totally not survive because I cannot control my mouth!

  1. Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
  2. There is no ladylike way to tell him to push all he wants, that his mouth and body on mine are the only things keeping me from losing my hold on a reality I never questioned until these past days.
  3. I mean, at this point it seems nice enough even with the weird mystery, so sure… But only if I can be one of the girls with powers!
