“Pa was taking too long to cut the boys’ throats.”First line in The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen
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?
I managed to finish 3 whole books this past week. The first one was Chosen Ones by Veronica Roth which I already have a review up for. I had some problems with the book that meant that I was incredibly bored while reading. I’m not sure I’ll be reading the sequel.
I also finished The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen which I gave 4 stars. I’m such a sucker for fantasy that has a clear message about real life social injustice, and The Merciful Crow did it in such a cool way. I’ve never read a fantasy book with such a clear-cut caste system and I really liked how that was explored.
Finally, I also just finished Edgedancer by Brandon Sanderson. I rated it 4 stars although I always find it difficult to rate novellas. That number is purely based on my enjoyment. I appreciated that it’s important to read. That it actually has a purpose. It includes both character development but also some “lore-info” which I really enjoyed. I often find that novellas are either/or and rarely contain both elements.
(Apparently, I had a thing for blue books this week)
What are you currently reading?
I’m only reading one book at the moment and that is Chainbreaker by Tara Sim. Currently at 21%. It’s great to be reading this series again. It has this certain vibe to it that’s kind of cozy even when it’s serious. I’m also really liking where the plot is going. I’m so intrigued.
(and the blue love story continues)
What do you think you’ll read next?
The only book I have left from my May TBR is The Last Sun by K. D. Edwards, the first book in The Tarot Sequence series.
(I’m going to cheat on blue with red lol)
