Today we’re asked to share three books: one we’ve just read, one we’re currently reading, and one we want to read. I usually have one physical book and an ebook on the go at the same time (I’m on public transport a lot, so I read ebooks on the go!) but for the purposes of this post I’m going to stick to the physical books on my TBR.

I finished reading City of Bones last weekend. It’s the first time I’ve read a Cassandra Clare book (despite having read her fan fiction way back when). I know The Mortal Instruments series, of which this is the first, is very popular among Booktubers. I found it to be an okay book – it was a little slow, but overall it was fairly entertaining. I’m a big fantasy reader, and I love when it’s incorporated into a contemporary world. I’ll probably keep reading the series eventually because now I’m curious.

This book seems to be everywhere at the moment, especially with the film coming out in a few weeks. I want to read it before I hear too much about the film, and this one comes highly recommended by many people. I’m only a few chapters in at the moment and I’m really enjoying it. It’s not a super fast-paced read, so it’s taking me a while. The old photographs really add something to this book. Also, I just love the feel of this book. The quality of the paper is amazing and smooth and the book is heavy. It’s such an interesting and appealing aesthetic for a book.

I received this book last month from OwlCrate and I can’t wait to dive into it. I’ve heard some mixed reviews, but it’s book one in a duology, and it’s a world filled with monsters (and the people who created them). I’m purposely not trying to find out too much about the book in advance of reading – that’s just how I like to read books – but I haven’t read any of Victoria Schwab’s books yet and I’m looking forward to jumping in to this one soon.
If you’re new to my blog, I do write book reviews and also chat about books on my youtube channel (amongst other things). If you’re interested in checking out the other books I’ve read/want to read this month, you can check out my Books to Read page, which has a month-by-month reading list, plus a record of all the books I read each month.
What book/s are you loving at the moment?

I feel like I should learn more about owl crate?! Sounds like a great idea!
My sister LOVED City of Bones… I might be convinced to read it now.
I have heard great things about Miss Peregrine's … and the movie trailer looks fascinating!
Ok, I have several more to add to my list now, love your blog! Have a happy Monday!
I really enjoyed Miss Peregrines. I haven't read the other 2 in the series yet, but I definitely want to. I had mixed feelings about the Mortal Instruments series. I think it could have and should have stopped with the third one.
I haven't read City of Bones before! Sounds interesting, I definitely need to add it into my to-read list!
