WWW Wednesday – April 8th 2020 (O.W.L.s Week 1)

“Night fell as death rode into the Great Library of Summershall.”

First line in Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Hi, guys. I hope you’re all doing okay or as okay as can be expected at the moment. Today I’m giving you an update on my progress in the O.W.L.s Magical Readathon, and I’m doing it 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?

I passed my exam in Transfiguration by reading Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson, and that was a great start to the readathon. This book actually wasn’t on my TBR even though I’d been eyeing for a while, but I needed a book that included shapeshifting. Lots of that in this book. I think I learned that my favorite kind of shapeshifting is people turning into cats (or maybe it was just this particular person). Overall, I gave the book 4 stars, and I already miss spending time with those charcters. Why are demons so often the most appealing characters?

What are you currently reading?

I’ve started my exam for Ancient Runes which has a focus on the heart rune. That means I’m reading The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne (58% in). A quite well-known author that I’ve never read from before but I think I’m in love. Apparently, I either love or hate literary fiction. Here I really love how Boyne writes the world from the MC’s perspective and how events clearly are filtered through his gaze. It’s quite inspiring.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Next up is Charms, and my pick is Lord of Secrets by Breanna Teintze which is probably the book I’m most excited to read for this readathon. I love it already because it’s so much shorter than first two books I decided to read, lol. As an unexperienced readathon-participant, I chose to read tomes, of course.
