“Mr. and Mrs. Dursley of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.”First line in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
Hi, guys. It’s Wyrd and Wonder month which means that every book in this week’s WWW Wednesday is fantasy. WWW Wednesday 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?
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and even though it’s my least favorite book in the series, I still had a great time! I mean, Harry has his first sassy moment 3 pages after appearing for the first time, and I just appreciate that so much.
My commute book is Chosen Ones by Veronica Roth which I’m 80% into. Almost done and I’m kind of looking forward to that. Not that I hate it. It’s just… fine. Other than that there are a few aspects about this book that has made me realize that it’s just not “my kind of book”. For one, we have an unlikable main character which I find very rarely works for me. I will finish the book though and I hope to have a full review up by the end of the week.
I’m also listening to The Merciful Crow by Maragret Owen which I’m almost halfway through. I love it! I gotta say that YA fantasy just works for me at the moment. The Merciful Crow is exactly what I need right now. Fast-paced, high stakes, enemies-to-lovers-romance. The social commentary in this one is also so thought-provoking already.
My next commute book will be Edgedancer by Brandon Sanderson which is the short story you’re supposed to read after Words of Radiance. After taking a break from this series, I’m ready to get back into it.
If I manage to finish The Merciful Crow, I’ll also be starting Chainbreaker by Tara Sim, the sequel to Timekeeper, and hopefully continue my amazing YA fantasy streak.
