WWW Wednesday – February 26th 2020

“Raisa ana’Marianna huddled in her usual dark corner at the Purple Heron, picking at her meat pie.”

First line in The Gray Wolf Throne by Cinda Williams Chima

Hi, guys. It’s Wednesday! Here you have my weekly update on my reading 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?

The Gray Wolf Throne by Cinda Williams Chima and I might hate it. At least I couldn’t find any reason to give it more than 1 star. My review of it will be up on Friday but the short version is that I don’t think this book should have existed.

What are you currently reading?

I’m not working this week (yay!) so I don’t exactly have a commute book. However, that doesn’t mean that I’m not reading two books anyway. I’m slowly making my way through Infinity Son by Adam Silvera and I’m currently at 26%. It’s alright, I guess. I’m not sure I understand everything because important world building aspects are sort of just mentioned in passing. So it hasn’t exactly hooked me yet but I’m not hating it by any means. 

I’m also 20% into The Library of the Unwritten by A. J. Hackwith and oh have I been looking forward to this one! A library in Hell with characters coming to life to look for their authors? Um.. Yes please! I’m really liking it so far. A little confusing beginning because the world is quite complex so there was a lot to learn. However, this is definitely the book I’m prioritizing this week. 

What do you think you’ll read next?

Last week I put The Crimson Crown here which is the next book in the Seven Realms series but I haven’t actually gotten it yet. Which I don’t mind… I’ll still read it but I think I need something in between. So if I start anything within the next week it’ll be A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden.

  1. What a shame that you didn’t like The Gray Wolf Throne! That cover is absolutely stunning, and I love it. I really struggled with the world-building in Infinity Son, too. It seems to be a pretty common theme among the reviews. I really enjoyed The Library of the Unwritten, and I hope you do, too! Happy reading.

    Here’s my WWW post.

    1. Yeah I’m so bummed about that but agree about the cover! The UK covers for this series is general are so gorgeous. And I had read that about the world building in Infinity Son in other reviews too so I was kind of prepared for it. It is his first fantasy book so maybe it’s to be expected but still a bit confusing.

      1. Yeah, I had a little trouble with the world-building in They Both Die at the End, too, and fantasy requires even more of it, so it wasn’t really surprising. Plus, fantasy and contemporary are just … different, so it’s almost like debuting again, in a way.

      2. The world building in They Both Die at the End was pretty vague at times, too. I agree with that. It just didn’t bother me very much because it was more of a contemporary anyway so the world wasn’t that important. It seemed more like a conscious choice if that makes sense.
        However, as an author you can’t make that choice when it comes to fantasy. Definitely agree with you that they are very different genres but that gives me hope that he’ll improve.
