“The sun’s relentless heat had been overwhelming all summer, but it was particularly taxing that morning.”First line in A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden
Hi, guys. I hope you’re all managing despite everything that’s going on. I’m lucky enough to still be able to go to work but it’s difficult here in Denmark. I just listened to our Queen give a “speech to the nation”. Fun fact: she’s been our Queen since 1972 but she has never given a speech before (besides the one she gives on New Year’s Eve). I think that made me realize that’s it’s quite serious. But moving on to happier things: books!
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?
Just before writing this, I finished A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden. A gripping dystopian with high stakes that I quite enjoyed. However, I had a few issues with the characterizations throughout the book so I think my rating is going to be 3 stars. I’ll have a full review up for this one soon.
What are you currently reading?
I’m very close to finishing The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima as I only have 80 pages left. My enjoyment-level is currently at 100%! This book is giving me everything I wanted when I started the series with The Demon King. I have to know the ending before I make my final judgement, but I believe this one is my favorite in the series.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Last week I said I was going to start The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan. Sadly that won’t happen as the libraries shut down so I’m not able to actually get the book. Instead I’ll read The Electric Heir by Victoria Lee. It’s the sequel to The Fever King and one of my most anticipated releases. I can’t wait to read it!
