Reading Right Now! (299)

 Another week pretty much over and it's already June!! I can't believe it.
So, what I'm Reading Right Now! is...

Bitten (The Otherworld #1) by Kelley Armstrong -- I've been eyeing this series forever and finally decided to start it. This first book is about Elena who is a werewolf. She was bitten (that whole situation is complicated) and she's the only female werewolf that exists. She's kind of struggling with where she wants to be, she's away from her pack by choice at the beginning of this, and then called back when a problem arises.
This does give me some Mercy Thompson Series feels, but Elena is a harder character and not as carefree as Mercy. I am enjoying it. It's 500+ pages, which I can't say I was expecting.
One thing that makes me excited about this series is that eventually we'll get to visit different creatures. The first two books are about Elena, but then we'll go to a new character that is a witch. I'm really intrigued by that. It kind of reminds me of The Nightworld Series by L.J. Smith, which I loved reading when I was younger. I need to go back and catch up with that series.
So, in conclusion, I have started yet another series.

Mirka Andolfo's Mercy: The Fair Lady, The Frost, and the Fiend (#1) by Mirka Andolfo -- This is a comic that I'm reading through Hoopla. I read Andolfo's other comic series, which I can't remember the name of, but it had a pig as the main character. When I saw another comic series by Andolfo, I wanted to check it out. This one is weird, very weird. It's got a Victorian feel to it. This new genteel lady comes to town, she's mysterious, but could she be dangerous? This feels very Lovecraftian to me. Andolfo's artwork is so good, so pretty. This story is pretty gory, but I'm enjoying it.

And that's what I'm Reading Right Now! What are you reading for the weekend?
