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? We didn't take part in WWW Wednesday last week because of Bout of Books so this is a two week catch-up post!
The first book I read this week was The Silvered Heart by Katherine Clements. It is the possibly true story of a highwaywoman. It takes place just after the Civil War and the descriptions of life under Cromwell were wonderful. The plot was exciting and the characters compelling. The main character, Kate, was not always likable but she felt real. I have a full review up for this here. I then read Way Down Dark which is a dystopian novel, I found it to be very action-packed and it was definitely a chilling world but I never felt a connection to the characters. I will also have a review of this up soon. Next up I read Eden Gardens which was chilling in a whole different way - as a reminder of the realities of British colonialism. I didn't love the main character and the romance felt weak to me but I really enjoyed the historical details. Again, a review is coming soon! Every Exquisite Thing was a bit of a disappointment to me. The main character annoyed me a lot and I wasn't invested in the plot. And then finally I read the first two books in The Raven Boys series which I am loving so far.
Planning to Read Next:
Next I plan to finish off the Raven Boys series with The Raven King which I am sure will be great. Then I want to read This Savage Song which I have been hearing some good things about so I got it from the library. And then I want to read another review book The Rumour which looks like a good summer read and I am definitely running out of Summer to read it in!
