It's time for another entry in my "Currently..." segment, in which I let you know what I'm currently up to on a number of highly important topics.


Insomnia (The Night Walkers, #1)Indelible (The Twixt, #1)Reboot (Reboot, #1)

Currently reading: Indelible by Dawn Metcalf. While the voice is a little too "unique" for my usual tastes, the story is highly original and the world extremely engrossing, so I'm devouring it and mourn when I cannot be reading.
Just finished: Insomnia by J.R. Johansson. Another highly engrossing and chilling story that I definitely recommend. I will be part of the blog tour for it, so be sure to watch for my post in early June! (here will be a giveaway. :)
Reading next: I normally don't know what I'll be reading next, but this time I do - Reboot by Amy Tintera! I've been dying to read this book. If Indelible wasn't so good, I would've stopped to read Reboot.

Manga: I actually haven't been reading much manga - I know, who am I and what have I done with Skye. I think I've discovered that I read manga when I'm sick, and as my health seems to have improved quite a bit as of late I'm not reading it as much. Actual books seem to take more brain power for me, whereas manga is more of a brainless activity. Still, I did hit a reading slump last week and re-read the Nightschool: The Weirn Books series. Svetlana is a genius - highly recommended.


TV: Recently discovered the Australian Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries series! OMG I have fallen in love with it - it's classic PI stories but with a wildly independent and playful female detective and her lovable cast of assistants. If you adore classic PI stories and the roaring 20s, this is definitely worth trying. I'm also revisiting Batman Beyond, probably my favorite cartoon from when I used to spend every Saturday morning in front of the television. Took a little doing but I got my hands on Seasons 2 & 3 and now I seriously can't get enough.
Movies: I've been re-watching a lot of favorite movies in lieu of nothing better. In Time was my last one - such an interesting concept and so very well done.


Project P: Since my health has been better I've been doing more around the house and neglecting my writing. I know, bad Skye - believe me, I beat myself up about it every single day. But I do try to work on it when I can, and it is slowly but surely coming along.


Life: As mentioned above, for some unknown reason I have been having some really good weeks health-wise (could I be recovering...? Nah), so I'm being sure to not waste them! I've been spring cleaning my bedroom like crazy, spending time with newish friends (and authors - love you Katie West! ;) and I'm even volunteering at a school library next week! It'll be fun working in a library again. So for once in a long while, I'm keeping myself busy - and quite enjoying it.

Blogging: To fill the Friday void I have right now, I'm going to be starting up a regular Friday Review segment, where I go over what I'm reading and what happened on the blog that week. Keep an eye out for it!

Bookshelf: Of course I have added quite a bit, but I am also proud to announce that I got rid of a whole bag last weekend! My shelves were literally overflowing, so it was nice to make a little room for the new ones coming in. I've had a really good past few weeks though, so that extra space is all but gone now. ;}

That's it for me! What are you "currently" up to?


  1. First off, let me say that not only do I LOVE your blog (I hit myself over the head that I don't comment more...which I'll be fixing soon!), but I also love this feature. Indelible has received high praise and I can't wait to read that as well as Insomnia! The shows look great and get on that writing ;) I've been trying to write more...but am always loaded down with reviews! Can't wait to see future posts, Skye!

  2. I really liked In Time too. Though I have to admit that every single time JT tried to cry I wanted to laugh and I thought he was in love with his mom, which creeped me out. I like it though!
