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 currently Scarlet by Marissa Meyer which so far I am really enjoying. I love that it introduces new characters to the series and telling their story while still expanding on the plot of the previous book telling their story.
I have recently finished Cinder and The Secrets of Drearcliff Grange School both of which I really enjoy and would recommend.
Planning to Read Next:
Next I plan on reading These Vicious Masks and Soundless and also hopefully Lady Midnight if Clare finishes it soon.
I feel like this is kind of an obvious one but Lady Midnight was released yesterday so of course I've started reading it. It's quite a chunky book so I haven't finished it yet but I hope to either today or tomorrow (because Ann is pestering me for it). So far I like it but not quite as much as I liked TMI or TID so we shall see what I think by the end!
The first book I finished this week was These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas which I flew through. It had everything I wanted it to and more and I am beyond excited for the sequel! I then went on to read The Dark Days Club which I really enjoyed but I found I wasn't fully immersed in the fantasy elements until near the end and Lady Helen's choice lacked some tension since I knew there were sequels. But overall this was a great read and I am very much looking forward to continuing the series. I really enjoyed Rebel Mechanics by Shanna Swendson, the world building could have done with some work as I didn't feel like the magic was as fleshed out as it could have been but I thought it was a fun read. I had almost the same problem with Curio in that, though I liked the characters I never really understood what was going on. I am not sure if I would want to read any sequels to Curio. Revenge and the Wild was very good. I really liked the characters and the plot was very gruesome at times which I didn't expect to like but I thought it worked.
Planning to Read Next:
Another book that was released yesterday was The Steep & Thorny Way which I am very excited for! And since it is a retelling (of Hamlet) I thought I'd read some more retellings from my TBR shelf so will be picking up Dorothy Must Die and Princess of Thorns. I've heard mixed things about the former but I am staying hopeful and I have really enjoyed Stacey Jay's other books so I'm sure I'll enjoy this as well!
