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!)

WWW Wednesday #37

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.

What I Just Finished:

Assassin’s Masque was a good ending to the series, and I liked it. It’s like one of those series that you just read, not because you really like the book, but because it’s fun to read.

*spoilers for The Book Thief. You can skip over to An Unwanted Guest’s update if you don’t want to see the spoilers*

Guys. The ending of The Book Thief broke my heart. It left me crying. For over an hour. It hurt so much, and why? Why did that have to happen? Why did Death take them away? Rudy. Mama. Papa. Everybody. That beautiful and lively Himmel Street. And the fact that Death spoiled it ahead of time did nothing to prepare me, though I thought I was prepared. Even now, it still stings to think about it.

The original book that I was going to read by Lapena, was Someone We Know, but my library didn’t have that, so I picked up An Unwanted Guest instead. The suspense, the atmosphere, the characters, everything was done amazingly, and I did not guess who the murderer was at all. Also, the twist at the very end was pretty good.

What I’m Currently Reading:

I’m pretty excited to read The Scorpio Races (recommended by the lovely Meeghan). I’m only a few chapters in, but so far so good. I’m super interested in the water horses and how the races work.

I keep saying that I’m going to start Beartown, but I haven’t yet, and again, today, hopefully I’m going to start it. It’s been on my currently reading now for a few days, so hopefully I will actually start reading it.

What I Plan To Read Next:

I’ve got 5 books to read, and they are all from the library, and I’m trying to read them in order of when they are due, but that’s not working out well. I’m definitely going to pick up one of these 5 next, but I’m not sure which one (probably CK lol).

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read any of these? What did you think? Any suggestions for what I should read next? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

WWW Wednesday #36

What I Just Finished:

I finished The Lovely and the Lost over the weekend, and it was a good book. I was a bit disappointed, because I was expecting more (JLB is one of my favorite authors) of a mystery, but this was more like a search and rescue book. It was still pretty good nonetheless.

What I’m Currently Reading:

I’m on page 334/416 of Assassin’s Masque, and this is definitely the most thrilling book out of the trilogy. The twists, the politics, everything is very delicate right now and it’s kind of like waiting for the timer to tick down to the moment of doom.

I am 12% into The Book Thief, and I love Papa and his relationship with Liesel. It’s definitely so sweet, and Rudy is hilarious, Rose is terrifying but also funny at times, and I’m so excited to continue!

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next up is Beartown by Fredrik Backman or The Lines We Cross by Randa Abdel-Fattah.

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

What I Just Finished:

Escaping From Houdini was the worst book in this series. Well, I haven’t read the last one yet, but I’m hoping that it’s so much better than this mess. Ugh. Here’s my mini unofficial review.

Throne of Glass was 3 stars for me. I’m a bit nervous about this possible love-triangle-that-maybe-is-not-going-to-be-a-love-triangle. I kind of liked Celaena, but not that much, but I really hope that Dorian and Chaol stay friends. I really love Chaol so much.

Vengeful was awesome. I loved it, just as much as Vicious, and I’m pretty upset that some people died, and I still don’t know who June is, and Marcella creeped me out, while still being super awesome. I just loved this book.

What I’m Currently Reading:

I’m currently reading The Book Thief, and I’m loving Death as the narrator.

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next up, is probably The Lovely and the Lost and The Assassin’s Masque.

What I Just Finished:

I finished three books which is pretty good! So far, I’ve read 8 books this month, and I’m now only behind by 6 books on my reading challenge.

Before We Were Strangers is more of a romantic mystery novel that is heavy on the family drama/romance and pretty light on the mystery. Nothing really happened mystery-wise until the last half of the book, and that was kind of annoying. It all got wrapped up pretty quickly, and there wasn’t really any slow buildup to a shocking reveal.

The Wrath and The Dawn was a really sweet, really cute fantasy romance and I really liked it. The ending was pretty cliffhanger, and I dived into The Rose and the Dagger right away.

Guys. I cried. The Rose and the Dagger managed to make tears spill down my cheeks. A part of it was really heartbreaking, but the book in general was more amazing than the first. I really loved the politics, the wars, how the drama between Khalid and Tariq was resolved, and the epilogue was just darling.

What I’m Currently Reading:

I’m reading way too many books at the same time lol

Vengeful (55%): I finally got Vengeful!! I’m 264 pages in, and I’m really liking it! I also kind of like how the storyline is flipping back and forth, but it’s a bit hard to keep straight.

Escaping from Houdini (18%): I also started Escaping From Houdini, and so far so good.

Throne of Glass (10%): I started this yesterday and I am a bit annoyed at the excessive mention of Celaena being an assassin, but I will be patient and continue on.

Assassin’s Masque (7%): I started this one a few days ago, and I’m not super intrigued by it at the moment. So it’s been pushed to the back burner for now.

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next, I’m probably going to start The Book Thief and The Lovely and the Lost.

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read any of the books that I’m reading? What did you think? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)
