“Lucie Herondale was ten years old when she first met the boy in the forest.”First line in Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare
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?
2 entire books! I finally made my way all the way through The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins. It ended up with a 3.5 rating. I did find it interesting following Snow and his thought processes. I don’t remember reading from a character like him before so I guess that was part of the appeal. However, the book didn’t need to be that long. I already have a full review up for this one if you’re interested in more of my thoughts.
Just before writing this, I finished Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare, which I rated 4 stars. However, if I were to rate it based on my enjoyment alone, it would be a 5 star. I think it might be the time for me to realize that I’ve fallen back in love with the Shadowhunter world. I mean, I know these books aren’t perfect, but following these characters and their romantic troubles just does something for me. I need the next book immediately.
What are you currently reading?
Well, since I just finished the book I was reading (Chain of Gold), I have nothing for this section today.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Finishing Chain of Gold that fast kind of screwed with my planning. I’m first in line at my library for the e-book of Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson so really hoping to get that one within the following week. Will be starting it immediately.
In the meantime, I figured I would pick up something short that I hope to finish before Oathbringer arrives. So I’ll be reading A History of Madness by Rebecca Crunden which is book 2 in The Outlands Pentalogy. I should probably continue with the series before I forget everything from book 1.
