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:
A lot of Sci-fi and Fantasy this week! And a lot of sequels!
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I LOVE this series! I don’t want it to be over, but I’m almost done with this book and it’s the last in the Illuminae trilogy. To anyone who likes Science Fiction, action-packed and movie-like writing, or are interesting in an extremely creative format in both written and audio form, I recommend this series with all of my heart. I wish I could read it again for the first time, but I’ll just have to settle for reading it again.
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
Another sequel! I read Mistborn, the first in this triology, last month and I loved it so much. A good friend recommended it and then went on to gush about how good the series was, so I have to read the rest of it and find out. This world is so original and complex! I’ve read a lot of Fantasy in my lifetime and this isn’t really like anything else I’ve read before, in the greatest way. I’m enjoying the second installment in this series a lot so far, even though I’ve only just started it.
Kingsbane by Claire Legrand
I don’t know why this book is taking me so long! I’m enjoying it a lot, to be honest, but there are so many books on my radar right now that I’m excited about and currently enjoying that I’m having a little trouble concentrating. I wonder why! I loved Furyborn, the book that precedes this one in its trilogy, and I’ve been waiting patiently for Kingsbane to release! So far its great, and look for a review on my blog soon.
What I’ve recently finished:
With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
I haven’t read as much this week because I’ve been traveling! But I did finish this gem, and I loved it. With the Fire on High was musical, poetic, colorful, and delicious. I was highly anticipating this sophomore novel by Acevedo and she did not disappoint. Look for this review on my blog this week!
What I think I’ll read next:
I can’t decide! There are too many options and I’m excited about all of them. Here are a few of my choices:
The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson
This is the sequel to Truly Devious, which I reviewed last week. I’m really excited to jump into this one, I want to know more about solving these murders! This being the second one in the series, I’m looking forward to a deepening of the story that was begun in Truly Devious and I can’t wait to see what Johnson has to offer.
The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay
This looks sooo interesting! I’m so eager to start this one. I loved A Head Full of Ghosts, another adult horror novel by Paul Tremblay, and if this is half as good I expect to be happy. Plus, I haven’t read a horror novel in a long time! It’ll be fun to jump back into that world for a while, and I’ll review it here when I’m done!
Splinters are Children of Wood by Leia Penina Wilson
This is a DRC I’m reading voluntarily for its publisher. It’s a short, delightful collection of poems and I haven’t read a lot of poetry lately, so I’m excited to pick it back up.
What are you reading this week? What are you excited about? What should I read next?!
