WWW Wednesday – December 11th

“There was no warning.”

First line in The Toll by Neal Shusterman

Hi, guys. Wednesday means that my weekly update is coming right at you through 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 did you recently finish?

Since last Wednesday I finished 2 whole books. The first one was The Toll by Neal Shusterman. I didn’t have to think too long before giving that one 5 stars. It was such a nice experience to read it and I really loved that it was a long one. I’m going to miss these characters so much, especially Grayson, but it was really nice ending so I don’t mind it too much that the series is over.

I also finished The Fever King by Victoria Lee because I had so much time to read on the train to Copenhagen this weekend. Also a really great read although my rating ended on 4 stars. It had an interesting magic system and I liked that it had a more serious and darker tone than your average YA book. I will have a full review up for this one sometime this week so look out for that.

What are you currently reading?

My current commute book is The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson and I’m a little over halfway through. I’m not really loving it which also describe my general feelings towards the entire second era of Mistborn. The only things I’m really interested in are the developements in the magic system and the lore in general. Not getting much of that in this one as of yet.

I also started Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde which I’m 18% into. I picked this one because I’m participating in the Winter Magical Readathon which is hosted by G from the BookTube channel Book Roast. Each Sunday a chapter is unlocked and based on your choices you get 1-3 reading prompts. My first prompt was to read a contemporary and Queens of Geek was available as an ebook so here we are. So far I’m enjoying it. It’s very sweet and relatable.

What do you think you’ll read next?

That’s the big question. My next prompt in the Winter Magical Readathon is to read a book with an orange cover or the word orange in the title. I’ve asked the library for Dry by Neal Shusterman because that cover was actually made for this kind of prompt. Whether the library will let me have it is another question entirely. I also just want to mention that I’m doing this readathon very casually. I get the prompts every Sunday but then I just read the books whenever I can get my hands on them (which isn’t immediately).

Another week of December is already over but I’ve loved my reading this past week. I’d love to know what you’re reading and also if you’re also participating in the Winter Magical Readathon. Have a great week.

  1. Ahhh, The Toll! I’m still sad that series is over, but as you said, it was a good enough ending (though, I only really liked half the ending, honestly). Sorry to hear that you’re not really feeling this Mistborn novels. I haven’t started the series yet, but it comes highly recommended. By my husband. What I’m saying is if I don’t read it next year, I’ll probably have to get a divorce. xD So hopefully, I enjoy it a bit more than you do lol.

    Oooh, I have Dry! Because after Scythe, Shusterman is basically an auto-buy author for me. I … haven’t read it yet, though. Because I’m a horrible person. I hope you’re able to get a copy, though!

    Here’s my WWW post.

    1. I do agree with you that the ending was absolutely perfect. There were some bits of it that could have been a little better. I was just so relieved that the ending wasn’t horrible. That would have ruined so much of the trilogy for me.
      I really hope that you end up reading Mistborn soon then lol 😀 I think the first 3 are absolute masterpieces which I guess is what I expected of the next 3 as well. They just don’t reach that same standard and so I’m a bit dissapointed although the books aren’t terrible. But I hope you end up loving all of them.

      I’m also going to read every single book by that man from now on 😀
