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've just started The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury and I am so excited! I've heard some great things about it and I love retellings so I can't wait to get stuck in to this one. I am also continuing on with Displaced by Stephan Abarbanell. I really like it - it's just taking me a while to get through. But I'll get there!
The first book I finished this week was Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt - much as I enjoyed her first book, The Last Summer of Us, I have to say this was a huge improvement. The characters felt very real as did all their interactions and I loved the friendships and the romance. I want to read Piecekeepers - we get an extract from it at the end and I am kinda hoping Maggie Harcourt does the whole Rainbow Rowell thing and writes the book within her book. I then read Inferno and Mafiosa by Catherine Doyle. Inferno was just a quick re-read to refamiliarise myself with the story and then Mafiosa was an excellent ending. Tiny bit of a cliffhanger at the end and I would definitely love to see more of these characters! But I will be excited for whatever Catherine Doyle writes next! Caraval was well-written and I liked the world but I wanted more from the story and there were some problematic elements that threw me off. I am definitely still going to pick up the sequel. Freeks was such a pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting to be as completely engrossed in the story as I was but it was exciting and dangerous and the characters were all so, so compelling. I need to read more by Amanda Hocking!
Planning to Read Next:
Next up is Frost Blood by Elly Blake. I was a little nervous about this one because it sounds like a very typical YA and I haven't had much luck with those lately - but I've heard some great things and the romance at least sounds like something I will love. So I am keen to try it. Then I will be reading Starfall by Melissa Landers which is the sequel/companion to Starflight which I read and loved last year so I have high hopes for this. And then, finally perhaps my most anticipated of my upcoming reads; Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza. It just looks incredible and I cannot wait to read it!!
