“It was the middle of an autumn downpour when Tobias first met Henry Silver.”First line in Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh
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?
I picked up Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh as something to read during the weekend. That plan was completely ruined when I had already finished it Saturday morning. It was just so incredible that I couldn’t pace myself. It’s truly a beautiful and heartwarming story, even though it’s short. Of course, I would have loved for it to be even longer, but I really think it works as a novella. Also, really just a must-read if you love nature themes in your fantasy stories.
Side note: the author just liked and retweeted my tweet about the book. That’s never happened to me before so I’m kinda freaking out!
I also finished A History of Madness by Rebecca Crunden which I gave 3 stars. It is book 2 in the Outlands Pentalogy. I still think the writing is great but about halfway through, I realized that I didn’t like the main POV character. Something about being in his head the entire time made me find him quite annoying. There was a short change in POV towards the end and that was definitely my favorite part of the book.
What are you currently reading?
I’ve started my reread of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I’m about 25% through but I’m putting it down for now. You see, I finally got Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson from my library so for the next few weeks, I’m devoting all my attention to getting through those 1,200 pages. So far I’m 8% into it so don’t really have an opinion yet other that it’s great to read about Kaladin again. I’ve missed him.
What do you think you’ll read next?
It’ll be a long while before I start something again, but the next one in line is Firestarter by Tara Sim. I really want to finish that Timekeeper trilogy. But not until I’ve caught up with The Stormlight Archive. I probably won’t be doing these WWW Wednesdays until I’ve finished Oathbringer. Not much to update you on until then. So happy reading!
