“WWW” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Taking On A World of Words.
Hi everybody, and welcome to a new weekly meme! I was kind of juggling two memes on Wednesdays: Can’t Wait Wednesday (hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings) and Quote It Wednesday (my own topic), but I thought “Why not add a third one to the rotation?”. Because my inspiration for quotes especially is running a bit dry at the moment, so I don’t have enough quotes left to have one ready every second week. And honestly, I also don’t ALWAYS have that many books I can’t wait for either (I’ve gotten quite picky in my *ahem* old age). So once in a while I’ll be switching it up with a WWW Wednesday post from now on. And we’ll see which rotation between the posts will occur as I go along and pick between the three each week.
For this post, we’ll be answering three questions (the 3 Ws):
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What are you currently reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I just finished reading The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy by Megan Bannen and highly enjoyed this one!
I’m not even sure how I can begin to describe it though. It’s a romance. It’s a fantasy with zombie-like creatures. It is super sweet. It is kinda macabre. It’s cozy and whimsical and yet also gory at times. It’s feel-good but also may have you bawling a bit. Not many stories could pull of this many different vibes and yet still make so much sense. Basically, it’s one of a kind. I adored it!
I am currently listening to A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness on audiobook. Honestly, this book is so long, I’ve been listening to it for over a month already (to be fair, this is also taking so long because I mostly listen on my commute to work and had a few weeks off so didn’t listen as much).
I know this is a much-loved story so I’m sorry to anyone who adores this series, but I have been struggling a bit with it. It’s just so slow. I’ve been wanting to DNF for a bit, but I pushed through and now I’m enjoying the second half a lot more already, so hopefully this continues as I really want to like this story.
I just started Blade and Rose by Miranda Honfleur on ebook. This is the first book in the Blade and Rose series and I got this because there was a promotion in which the first 4 books in the series were free for a limited time.
I’m only on like chapter 5 by now, so I can’t say much about it yet, but it seems like a fun fantasy romance series. I’m not hooked yet, but I’m hoping that’ll happen soon.
I’m a huge mood reader, so by the time I finished my current reads I could be in the mood for something else entirely, but a few possibilities are:
- Something Wilder by Christina Lauren, a backlist book I still need to read.
- Written in Red by Anne Bishop – I read the first book on paperback years ago, but I never continued the serie, and I’m thinking of trying the entire series on audio.
- The American Roommate Experiment by Elena Armas, a new release I’m excited about.
- The Unbreakable Bladesong Druid by Annette Marie, an upcoming release and finale to a beloved series I’m super excited about.
