Every Wednesday we are linking up with WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is hosted at Taking on a World of Words and asks 3 questions: What are you currently reading?, What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you'll read next?
I am nearly finished reading Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and I'm not sure how I feel about it so far. There is a lot of girls hating other girls which I always dislike but I am hoping I end up enjoying it. I am also now on page 190 of The Warden by Anthony Trollope which I am definitely enjoying. It's a very light and easy read and it's introduced a neighbourhood that I am sure I am going to enjoy as the series continues.
I am very glad I finally read Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. I had been worried I'd hyped it up too much and I had a tiny bit but I really enjoyed this story and I even almost cried in a few places. The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger so I am very excited for the next book in the series. I then read A Tyranny of Petticoats which is a short story collection edited by Jessica Spotswood. The stories are ordered chronologically which I really liked because it showed how attitudes towards and of women - and the issues they faced - changed over the years. I thought the last half of the book was my personal favourite but there are stories to appeal to anyone and I do recommend it. The Steep & Thorny Way was every bit as amazing as I had expected it to be. There is no way to over hype a Cat Winters book, they always seem to exceed expectations. I can't even talk about this book rationally but I loved the characters and the historical elements broke my heart even as Cat Winters put it back together again. Dorothy Must Die was, I'll admit, a bit disappointing. The action was there but I didn't feel emotionally connected to the characters and the first two thirds didn't really hold my attention. If the library has the sequels then I will probably read them, but I don't think they're a priority for me. Princess of Thorns was a great fairy-tale sequel with an original twist on the origin story which I liked and it also melded two fairy tales into one in a very good way. I always enjoy Stacey Jay's writing and I think this may be my favourite of hers so far. I then read The Shadow Queen which I actually really enjoyed - I will have a full review up for this tomorrow.
Planning to Read Next:
I am probably going to read Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard next and then I am thinking of reading The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury and then The Young Elites by Marie Lu - I enjoyed the Legend trilogy and from what I've heard this series is even better.
