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 reading The Silvered Heart by Katherine Clements which I received for review from the publisher and I am very excited about it. I love the idea of a highwaywoman and I am hoping to finish this today or tomorrow so will have a review posted soon.
The first book that I read this week was The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. I thought it was a good read and I liked the characters but I didn't love them and I felt a bit detached from the plot. The description was lovely but there was so much of it that it detracted from my involvement with the characters.
Planning to Read Next:
I am not quite sure what I am in the mood for at the moment so I decided to just read some review books and see how it goes. First up is Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld. I am always up for a good retelling and I have heard great things about this one. Then I plan to read Way Down Dark which is the first in the Australia trilogy by JP Smythe. This has been likened to Divergent and The Hunger Games so I am intrigued. I then want to read Eden Gardens by Louise Brown. I have been drawn to this one for a while but for some reason kept putting it off. The cover is gorgeous and the blurb intrigues me.
I like the idea of modern retellings of P&P too. I'll be interested to see what you think of Eligible.ReplyDelete
And the idea of a highwaywoman is brilliant :-) I hope you enjoy The Silvered Heart too.
Thanks for visiting my WWW (https://clairehuston.wordpress.com/2016/08/17/www-wednesday-17th-august-2016/) and happy reading!
I've heard very mixed things about Eligible! The Silvered Heart was a good read, loved the highwaywoman angle!Delete
I am curious about Eligible....and I, too, think the cover on Eden Gardens is gorgeous. I hope you enjoy them all.ReplyDelete
Here's MY WWW POST
Hopefully Eden Gardens will be as good on the inside as it is outside!Delete
The silvered Heart does sound good! We know more stories with highwaywomen! Eden Gardens does have a nice cover.ReplyDelete
Yes! Definitely need more highwaywomen! This is even based on a real woman which I love!Delete
I bought The Star-Touched Queen back in May, but still haven't read it. I've seen a lot of people with the same opinion as you - the writing is wonderful, but the characters and plot could be better. Hopefully I'll like it whenever I get around to reading it!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my WWW!
I hope you do enjoy it! If the characters and plot had been as good as the writing then this would have been an amazing book!Delete
I've heard similar things about the description of Star Touched Queen. I think I would like the book, but I think I'd be distracted as well. I love the cover for Way Down Dark! Great picks this week. :DReplyDelete
If you liked The Wrath and the Dawn you will probably like Star Touched Queen although I would say its not as compelling, similar writing styles but I think TW&TD was better developed.Delete
I've heard great things about Eligible, hope you like it.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting Haphazard Bookshelves.
I have heard some great things and some less positive things but it seems to be the most well liked of the Austen series so I have high hopes!Delete
The Silver Heart has such a pretty cover! I think I'm in a grey-white-red mood recently <3 I haven't read any of these, but I'll look up The Silver Heart and The Star-Touched Queen on Goodreads.ReplyDelete
Happy reading! :)
Eden Gardens looks really good to me, too. The cover is beautiful. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!ReplyDelete
