“It was the largest gathering of the Spirit clans Raisa had ever seen.”First line in The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima
Hi, guys. I hope you’re all doing okay and getting some reading done. 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 Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima, and I’m so stoked to have finished this series just 2 months after I started it. And what an ending! I ended up giving it 5 stars. I finally saw the full potential of the world and this story be realized, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself while reading. This series is quality YA fantasy. I know about the companion series, Shattered Realms, which I will definitely be reading. Just maybe not for a couple of months at least. I think a break will be good. If you’ve read both series, I’d love to know which one you preferred.
What are you currently reading?
My commute book is Master of Sorrows by Justin Call, which is a book I started in January but decided to take a break from. The lack of books from the library has forced me to pick it up again, so I’m now 55% through. Reaching that halfway mark felt like a serious achievement because this book is soooo slow. There’s so much unneccesary detail and prolonged scences and conversations. I’ve been very bored. However, I think I finally reached the point were the book actually starts (after 260 pages), so I still have hopes of finishing this book.
I’m also reading The Electric Heir by Victoria Lee, which I’m 79% into. I’m liking it although it is kind of slow. I’m more accepting of that in this than in Master of Sorrows because the characters are so compelling. The themes explored are also very captivating to me and I really want to see how Lee ends it all.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m kind of hoping that those 2 books will last me until next Wednesday when the O.W.L.s starts. However, if they don’t, I have Sky In the Deep by Adrienne Young on my shelves from an old Owlcrate box. Again, our current situation forcing me to pick up a book I’d have otherwise put off. We’ll see whether it’s a good thing or not.
