“Pedron Niall’s aged gaze wandered about his private audience chamber, but his dark eyes hazed with thought saw nothing.”First line in The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan
Hi, guys. I hope you’re all doing great. Today I’m using WWW Wednesday as usual to give you a reading update. 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?
The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan. I just finished it before writing this, and I’m realizing that I can’t possibly give it more than 2 stars. What was the point? I read 674 pages, and I’m not sure why I needed to read so many pages to get the important events of this book. There were so few of them! I dislike the book even more because it’s making me make the choice of whether to continue with the series or not.
What are you currently reading?
Now that I’ve finished The Dragon Reborn, my next commute book will be Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin. I was also currently reading this one last week, but I actually decided to take a break from it shortly after I wrote last week’s post. I wasn’t really feeling it which meant that I was reading two books I didn’t really like. I needed a break from one of them. It means that my progress is the same as last week: 32%.
Instead of reading Serpent and Dove, I needed something I knew I would love so I picked up The Hanged Man by K. D. Edwards, the sequel to The Last Sun. And thank you, K. D. Edwards, for preventing a reading slump. This one is even better than the first because it very early on fixed some of the issues I had with the world-building. The characters are still great. I find myself thinking about them even when I’m not reading. I’m 64% in and dreading reaching the end.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Last week, I said I would start A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins… which didn’t happen obviously. I finally got my copy so I might start it even though I don’t exactly have the time for it. You see, I also need to start The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers because that is a library book.
