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? You can click any of the images to go to the Goodreads page for that book!
I'm actually going out today and I refuse to take this book out of the house (it's too pretty) so I may wind up reading something else as well on kindle. But I am super excited to read Strange the Dreamer I feel like I've been waiting ages for this book. I just realised I don't even know what it's about - weird that I am this excited to start a book I don't know anything about? I mean - it's Laini Taylor what else do I really need to know?
Proof of Lies was an incredible start to my reading week! I loved the characters, the plot was exciting and Diana Rodriguez Wallach's writing was wonderful! I liked the ending - sort of complete but with a hint of mystery to come and I am excited for the next book! Blood Rose Rebellion however was a bit of a disappointment. There were a few inaccuracies and generalisations regarding Europe. When I started getting super nitpicky (I got real mad because storks are a good omen not a bad omen!) I realised I was just not enjoying it - I get really fussy when I already don't like a book. The last quarter of the book did pick up and was more exciting but Anna never grew to be a character I could like unfortunately. Defy the Stars was underwhelming for me. My review for this will be up tomorrow but to summarise - I didn't really connect with any of the characters and whilst I liked the world building and the potential for a good story was there it didn't quite follow through for me. The Beast of London was one I thought would be good but somehow it exceeded that expectation - it was great! I really loved Mina and the atmosphere and just! Ugh so good. My full review will be up on Saturday. And I promise I wrote more than - ugh so good. I swear.
Planning to Read Next:
I am kind of excited to read A Crown of Wishes? I wasn't in love with the first book but everything I've seen about this suggests its better than The Star-Touched Queen. And I pulled it out of my TBR jar so it's up! And then Origin and Vitro - I adored The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury so I can't wait to read these!
