WWW Wednesday #42

Hey friends! I hope you are having a fantastic day! It is time for my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

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

Let’s get started!

All covers are from Goodreads

What I Just Finished:

Heir of Fire was really great. It was amazing seeing Celaena become the person that she is meant to be. And I absolutely loved the witches!! I can’t wait to see what happens to them in the later books! I didn’t really enjoy Chaol/Aedion’s point of view nor did I really care about what was happening in Rifthold until the end.

The Turn of the Key was also great. I enjoyed the suspense and the atmosphere created by all the weird things going on. I was honestly anxious enough that I stopped reading when night fell lol. But the more I think about the ending, the more it doesn’t make sense, and I wish it had been explained better.

I picked up This Is Where It Ends on a whim, and I kind of enjoyed it. The horrors of what was going on was so heartbreaking, and to know that it happens in real life rather frequently is so sad and outrageous. However, the characters were really flat and both Autumn and Claire annoyed me. Tomas, Sylv, and Matt were the only ones that I liked. I also didn’t really like how Tyler was portrayed. Overall, it was meh.

What I’m Currently Reading:

Queen of Shadows (11%): I’m seriously upset with Chaol right now. And I used to love him. His confrontation with Aelin went so badly, and I honestly wished she’d punched him maybe once, because obviously his ears are not working right.

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next up is either Ink and Bone, Empire of Storms, or Memory Man.

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read Ink and Bone? What did you think? Am I the only one who was seriously upset with Chaol in Queen of Shadows? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

Monthly TBR: January 2020

Good morning amigos! I hope you’re having a great day! Today, I’ll be sharing with you my reading plans for this month.

Originally, my goal was to read 12 books, but to be honest, I think I’m going to bring that down to 8. Classes just started today, and with my probably harder college classes starting next week, I think I’m going to go easy on myself.

My reading goal for 2020 is 110 books, which means roughly 9.12666… books per month. So yeah, 8 isn’t too bad a start for the year.

Let’s get started!

Already Read:

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas:

This was really good, and I’m super happy with the way the series is going. It was interesting to see Celaena become the person she is meant to be, and Rowan was a wonderful friend and teacher. Emrys and Luca were so precious, and I loved them so much.

Also, the witches!!!!!! The witches were phenomenal and I loved their story-line so much! I can’t wait to see the rest and what happens to them!!


To Be Read:

I’ve already started The Turn of the Key, and it is creepily deliciously good! I feel like I’m in the story with Rowan, so it’s actually creeping out more than I’d like to admit lol

  • The Chain by Adrian McKinty. Available soon, E-book

Chat with me

I might not read all of these, and I may read more. It all depends on how the month goes. Last month, I read a lot more thrillers and mystery, but this month, I think I have a healthy mix of the two.

What are you reading this month? Do you have any books that you are excited for this year? What book did you start off the year with? What’s your favorite YA spy book? Chat with me in the comments below!

WWW Wednesday #41

Hey friends! I hope you are having a fantastic day! It is time for my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

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

Note: I’ve been rather MIA lately. I’m behind on blog posts, comments, and blog hopping. All my amazing plans to write so many posts and be productive over the Winter break have flown right out the window. And well, I’m disappointed about that, but I ended up having a great time with my family, and I hope you all did too!

I’m going to work on catching up on all the posts and comments that I’ve missed, hopefully starting today. And I can’t wait to tell you guys about something amazing that happened this past December, and my plans for January and 2020 as a whole (coming in my wrap-up post)!! I’m equally nervous and excited.

So, basically I apologize for disappearing, and I am work on catching up on everything 💚


Since I missed last week’s WWW (and the last of the year and decade!!!!), I’m going to be talking about all the books I’ve read since my last WWW post on the 18th of December.

Now, let’s get started!

All covers are from Goodreads

What I Just Finished:

I managed to finish 98 books last year. Didn’t get to 100, but that’s alright, because I read 98 and that’s still an awesome number.

Capturing the Devil: This book was a disaster. Not a complete disaster, but still a disaster. The ridiculous twists, and the reveal at the end made no sense at all, and I was so frustrated with Audrey Rose. Being in her head is painful, because she thinks the exact same thing a hundred different ways. I’m just so glad that this series is over, and I honestly can’t see why I liked it in the first place. There were some good parts too (Liza, Daci, and Illeana met and their friendship is YESSS!!!), but overall, this was still a disappointing finale to this series.

The Late Show: Pretty good. I liked Renée and the mystery of who did it, as well as the rogue cop aspect. However, it just wasn’t a five star, and I wished that Renée had a partner to help her with the investigation.

I Hate Weddings: This was short, a little sweet, but also rather annoying. I don’t think MG books are for me.

Our House: This was great. I liked the alternating storylines, and the ending was super satisfactory. I didn’t like Fi much, but I understood her passion to protect her kids. Bram was the one I sympathized with the most, and I really hoped that he would be saved. It was really sad reading the story from his POV.

The Lincoln Lawyer: It was great. Not really memorable, but I enjoyed the legal drama, and liked some of the characters.

Ayesha At Last: This had pretty good representation. I liked the drama, and Khalid’s awkwardness. However, some of the characters annoyed me to no end, mainly Hafsa, and I didn’t like how everything was handled at the end. It was cute at times, annoying at others, and that ending wasn’t really good.

The Queen of Nothing: In two words: I’m disappointed. What. Happened. To. This. Book? Where is the plot?? All the snake drama happened, yes, but where did the amazing back-stabby political landmine plot go?? This book was so short, and it was so tame compared to The Wicked King, and I’ve been so hyped for this disappointment. I’m just really disappointed.

Standstill: I got this book for review from Reedsy, and I didn’t like it much at all. The idea was great, but the execution just wasn’t good.

What I’m Currently Reading:

Just started Heir of Fire. Hopefully this will be great!

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next up is The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware and Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine.
