WWW Wednesday (August 7)

WWW Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading. To participate, answer the following three questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Here are my answers:

Currently Reading:
I’m just about to start reading The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle. I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews for it, so hopefully I’ll be counted among those who enjoyed it.

 

 

Recently Finished:

I recently finished reading SYLO by D.J. MacHale and What Really Happened in Peru (The Bane Chronicles, #1) by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan. They were both okay reads, and reviews will hopefully be posted within the next few days.

What I Think I’ll Read Next:

Next, I plan on reading either The Demon Rolmar by A.V. Griffin or Rory by Ciye Cho. Both of these are review requests, so I should probably read them before I start on my huge pile of library books.

2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Here are my answers:

Recently Finished:
I recently finished reading Grasping at Eternity by Karen Amanda Hooper, which I really enjoyed. The concept behind it was so different from any other YA books I’ve read and it was beautifully written. My review can be found here.

 

 

What I Think I’ll Read Next:

Next, I plan on reading either The Resurrectionist by Matthew Guinn or I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga. Both sound creepy yet intriguing, so we’ll see how well I sleep after I finish reading them.

1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Here are my answers:

I just started reading Sorta Like a Rock Star by Matthew Quick. I really enjoyed reading Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, so I’m hoping that this book is just as good!

 

 

 

 

Recently Finished:
I recently finished reading Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson. It was the first Bluebeard retelling that I’ve read, and made for an okay read. My review can be found here.

 

 

 

What I Think I’ll Read Next:

After finishing Shadow and Bone a few days ago and absolutely loving it, I just couldn’t wait for my hold on Siege and Storm to come in – I had to read it right away! Last night, I decided – in the middle of a thunderstorm, no less – to go out and purchase Siege and Storm and, after looking through all of my local bookstores, I finally found a copy! Needless to say, it will definitely be my next read.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading. To participate, answer the following three questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Here are my answers:

Currently Reading:

1I’m about halfway through Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, which I had put off reading for quite a while because all of the mixed reviews scared me. Now that I’ve finally gotten used to to the flowery language, strikethroughs, repetition, and awkward-sounding metaphors, it’s turning into a decent read.

 

 

Recently Finished:

4I recently finished reading Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson, and I absolutely loved it! I highly recommend giving it a go. My review can be found here.

 

 

 

 

What I Think I’ll Read Next:

1 2 3

The first two are ARCs from Netgalley that I really need to read and review at some point soon. I only have five books left before I’m all caught up and free to request more, since every time I go on, I have to request something; it’s like an addiction. Inferno is a one week loan that I’ve been waiting on for ages, so I guess I should really start reading it before I start to rack up some nasty library fines (you’d think they’d cut a former library page some slack, but nope).

WWW Wednesday (July 10)

WWW Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading. To participate, answer the following three questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Here are my answers:

Currently Reading:
1I’m currently reading Gone by Michael Grant. It’s been on my to-read list for ages since I’ve heard good things about this series. I’m only about 100 pages in but so far I like it, even though the pace is kind of slow.

 

 

 

Recently Finished:

1I recently finished reading Eve by Anna Carey, which I unfortunately didn’t enjoy as much as I would have liked to. My review for it can be found here.

 

 

 

 

What I Think I’ll Read Next:

210

When it comes to choosing a book to read next, I’m the worst at making a decision. I always have about 2980427384 books lying around at home that I’ve borrowed from the library or bought and haven’t read yet. I also have a bad habit of requesting a ton of books on Netgalley at a time, downloading them, and then forgetting about them – though I’ve told myself that I’m not allowed to request anything else until I’m completely caught up, so we’ll see how well I can stick to that.

That being said, I think that my next read will either be You Are Mine by Janeal Falor (which was a review request, so it should really be my first priority) or The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (which is due back at the library soon).

WWW Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading. To participate, answer the following three questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading:
1I received an ARC of Mrs. Poe from a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. It’s really interesting so far – aside from knowing that he married his cousin, I knew next to nothing about Poe’s married life.

 

 

 

 
Recent Reads:

2This book was strange but good. The biology major part of me was intrigued by the idea that there could be a biological explanation for vampirism and was fascinated by all of the detailed descriptions of parasites (many of which I learned about in zoology class).

 

 

 

To Read:
5 6I was finally able to pick these up from the library, and I can’t wait to start them. The Shadow of the Wind was one of the best books that I’ve read, so I can’t wait to see what further adventures take place at the Cemetery of Forgotten Books.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading. To participate, answer the following three questions:

2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m currently reading Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh (or, I will be by the end of today). I’m so excited to finally start reading this, since I loved Nevermore and may have reserved a special place for Varen on my list of book boyfriends.

I recently finished reading The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen. Although one of the major plot twists was predictable, it made for an enjoyable read filled with action and a loveable, snarky narrator. I’ll definitely be reading the rest of the series.

Next, I plan on reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, since it’s finally available for me at the library and I’ve been looking forward to reading it for months.

1. What are you currently reading?

3. What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m currently reading Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. I really like this book so far – it has dark supernatural elements inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, interesting characters, and a pretty cute, believable romance. If it weren’t for the fact that its sequel is currently on order at my library, I wouldn’t have been able to put it down.

I recently finished reading This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel. I had no idea what to expect from it, aside from knowing that it was a prequel of sorts to Frankenstein, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

Next, I plan on reading either The New Normal by Ashley Little or The Ghosting of Gods by Cricket Baker, since they’re both books that I borrowed from my library’s ebook download center and are due back before next week.

2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve finally gotten around to reading Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes. It’s marketed as “Game of Thrones for young adults” and so far, I can see why – there’s political unrest, conflict between kingdoms, magic, some romance, alternating character POVs, and (of course) death and deception.

I recently finished reading Across the Universe by Beth Revis, which had a really interesting premise. Despite the predictable ending, I can’t wait to read the sequel.

Next, I plan on reading either Arclight by Josin L. McQuein, The Elite by Kiera Cass or Legacy by Molly Cochran.
