WWW Wednesday #38

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:

A Darker Shade of Magic was a pleasant surprise. I really liked Kell, would have loved more of Rhy, and Lila was an interesting character. There was a bit of info dumping and it was kind of slow in the beginning, but I liked knowing how everything worked. I’m wondering how it’s a series, when there was no cliffhanger or something at the end, but I wouldn’t mind seeing more of Rhy and Kell.

I just finished my re-read of The Fixer, and it is still just as amazing. I loved the characters, and the plot twists, and I noticed some new things this time around. Asher is the best, Vivvie is the sweetest, and Henry and Tess are fighting for the title of the deadliest. I loved the odd friendship between them all. (BR with Amelia)

What I’m Currently Reading:

I’m going to start The Long Game today!

I’m 67% into Crooked Kingdom and the banter is everything. I missed this team so so much, and I’m loving how this has a lot more heists going on. And I forgot how absolutely ruthless Kaz is. And this scheme that they’re plotting, I really hope it goes right. It has to.

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next up is The Bookish Life of Nina Hill, or Hungry Hearts, or Crown of Midnight.

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read any of the books above? What did you think? Am I the only one who’s dying with worry and hoping that Kaz’s latest crazy scheme goes right? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

Monthly TBR: November 2019

Good morning or afternoon or evening! Welcome to my To-Be-Read list for November 2019!

Last month, I had a TBR post, and I managed to read 13 books, which I’m super proud of. And so hopefully, maybe if I have a TBR for each month, I’ll be able to continue reading more, and catch up on my GR reading challenge. And maybe I’ll end up not reading anything at all, but I’m still pretty hopeful that this TBR will work.

Anyways, let’s get started!

In my last TBR post, I just dumped a bunch of books that I wanted to read, and their summaries together, but this time, I’m going to split them between the book that I’ve Already Read, Books that I’m going to Buddy Read, and Library Borrows/Holds. That should give this some semblance of order.


Already Read

  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. (Read: Nov. 2) This was a really great book and the end shattered me. It was a little slow, but Liesel’s adventures, her friendship with Rudy, Mama and Papa, Max, book stealing, and all the mismatched characters on Himmel Street were amazing and that ending hurt. so. much.
  • An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena. (Read: Nov. 4) A very good thriller that left me on the edge of my seat. I didn’t guess who the killer was at all, and the two twists at the end were really good.
  • The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. (Read: Nov. 10) It was really heartwarming, and I loved the characters, their struggles, the theme of finding where you belong, and the magic of the water horses. Finn is adorable and a real gem, and I loved Puck and Sean’s relationship, and how it didn’t overpower the plot or consume each of their lives. Their bonds with their horses was beautiful and that ending was so peaceful, and perfect, and I’m so happy that I read this. (I also have a recipe for November Cakes and I’m so excited!!)
