That’s What HE Said Thursday #12 (July 02)

Hi there! I’m back from my day outside yesterday celebrating Canada Day with a That’s What He Said Thursday post, a meme hosted by Chapter Break. Today I’ll be featuring Gideon de Villiers, from Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier!

Ruby Red_bookcover“You have a mother?” Only when I said it did I realize what a silly question it was! For heaven’s sake!
Gideon raised one eyebrow. “What did you expect?” he asked, amused. “You thought I was an android put together by Uncle Falk and Mr. George?”

This isn’t a romantic quote or anything, it just kind of shows Gideon’s sense of humour and an interaction between Gideon and Gwyneth. 🙂

 

So that’s it for this very brief That’s What He Said Thursday post! Have a great Thursday!

Teaser Tuesday #12 (June 30): Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

It’s Teaser Tuesday time, (a meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm)! To play along, simply open to the page you’re on in the book you’re currently reading and share a ‘teaser’ from it.
Today I have a teaser from Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. This book is a re-read for me, and I’m really enjoying it. 🙂

Ruby Red_bookcover“How can she expect us to believe a word of what she says anyway?” asked the man by the mantelpiece. I thought his way of acting as if Mum and I weren’t even in the room was very arrogant. “I have the clearest recollections of the lies Grace told to protect Lucy and Paul at that time. It was her fault they got away from us. If it hadn’t been for her, we might have been able to avert the disaster.

-Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

WWW Wednesday #10 (June 10)

Hey! Time for another WWW Wednesday (what a coincidence it’s my tenth one, on the tenth of this month!) A meme formerly hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading, WWW Wednesday is now hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.

All you have to do to play along is answer the following questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading?

I’ve been reading Deception So Deadly by Clara Kensie since last Wednesday (check out a teaser on it here) and today I just started Unleashed by Liz Coley. Unfortunately I’m not that far into either of them, but so far they’re both enjoyable.

Recently Finished?

The immediate book that comes to mind is Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer. Other books I’ve finished include A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas & Zaria Fierce and the Secret of Gloomswood Forest by Keira Gillett. (Reviews to come for all, hopefully soon!) I also finished reading the play script of Romeo & Juliet on a spontaneous decision, for my Popsugar challenge. I’m still deciding whether or not I should do a review on it or not. What do you guys say?

Read Next?

There are still the books I was planning to read this week (for the Popsugar challenge) which include:

  • The Lying Game by Sara Shepard
  • Anna & the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (No longer being used for the challenge. Will get to it another time)
  • Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilber

And I’m also thinking of re-reading (for the challenge):

Apart from these books, I also have a couple of review copies:

  • Wash Me Away by Wendy Owens
  • Unknown Sender by Ryan Lanz

So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! What have you been reading then, now and next? Let me know in the comments below or link your post! 🙂

Happy Wednesday!
