WWW Wednesday – October 23rd

“The Fourth Crown Princess of the Blue Crescent Islands had sixteen rituals to observe from the moment of waking to when she broke her fast.”

First line in Dragonfly by Julia Golding

Hi, guys and welcome to another WWW Wednesday. It’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and it’s meant to give you all a little insight into my reading this week. I’ll answer the 3 questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading 2 books and they are repeats from last week’s post. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, which I have about 210 pages left of. I’m also still reading The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O’Neill, which I have about 190 pages left of. A part of me is hoping to finish this one today actually. I’m on vacation from work this week, which means I’m able to spend 3 hours on a train to visit a friend. Will I be able to read 190 pages in 3 hours? Stay tuned for next week’s post to see how this cliffhanger turns out.

What did you recently finish?

I finish 2 books within the last two days and my enjoyment of them is at each end of the spectrum. Bad one first: Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski. Last week I talked about how I wanted to DNF it but I managed to pull through. Not that that made it any better though. 1 star.

The perfect one: Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell. That feeling when one of your most anticipated releases turns out to be just as good as you expected it to be. I read it in 2 days and that was me trying to read it slowly. I’ll have a review up for it soon so that you can all see me gush about this book. My rating of it is 4.5 stars (rounded up to 5).

What do you think you’ll read next?

I just picked up The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden at the library so probably that.

That was my weekly update. I’m so happy to have time off from work. I’m definitely using it to catch up on some reading. How is your reading going this week? If you have a WWW Wednesday post yourself, feel free to link it in the comments so that I can check it out.
