I’ve seen a lot of bookish memes and list ideas here on the book-blogging circuit, and I wish I could do all of them! One of my favorites has been a trend of bloggers posting their current reads on Wednesdays!
This week I’ll be taking inspiration from Taking On a World of Words, and trying out their “WWW Wednesday!”
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
What I’m reading now:
Right now I’m reading two books that were recommended to me by friends who love them!
I’ve only just started Half Bad, but I’m already really enjoying it. The main characters nameless almost wordless first hand experiences are gritty and compelling. The lack of information so far, only circumstances and clues, makes me want to know exactly how he got into this mess and what this world and his captors are like. I can’t wait to read more!
And I Darken has been so good, and I am almost finished with it. I have loved reading a royal court story of intrigue that is set in the Ottoman Empire! I’ve never read anything quite like that, and I feel like it gives it such a unique twist, and all sorts of fresh pockets to explore. The MC is harsh and difficult but also determined and strong, and the complex relationship with her brother is fascinating to me. I look forward to letting you guys know what I think when I finish!
I know these two came out a few years ago, what did you think of them?
What I’ve recently finished:
A lot! Or at least it feels like a lot! May has been a great reading month so far.
I most recently finished On the Come Up by Angie Thomas and I was in love. Look for the review of this book appearing on my blog soon. I loved the MC Bri and watching her fight for her dreams, as well as struggle to know what to do with them when she found herself on that very road. I loved her songs, I loved her passion, I loved that she was difficult and unapologetic. Angie Thomas definitely has done it again with this wonder.
Truly Devious was so much fun to read! I buddy-read this one with fellow blogger and friend Elizabeth from This is Lit (check our their podcast! It’s great), and we had an excellent time. She’s already tweeted about her love for this book, but look forward to a review on my blog shortly! What a fun mystery, a great and competent MC, and an all-around good time. Can’t wait to read the sequel soon!
I waited so long for Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs! I’ve been reading her series (both set in the Mercy Thompson world) for almost ten years now. Briggs is one of those authors that I don’t even read the synopsis before buying, and I wasn’t disappointed. Her books have gotten a little shorter but no less entertaining over the years, and I’ll always love going back to visit Mercy and Adam and all of their pack. Will continue reading this series until I die, probably.
What I plan to read next:
I am SO EXCITED to read Kingsbane!
Claire Legrand dropped this sequel to Furyborn only a few days ago and my pre-order arrived this morning. I’ll be starting on this probably sometime tonight or tomorrow and I can’t wait to find out what’s in store next for Rielle, Eliana, and their colorful crew. Especially after that reveal near the end of Furyborn! Very much looking forward to enjoying and reviewing this book.
What are you reading this week? What are you excited about? Tell me in the comments and have a great reading week!
