“Unlike others who claim to be well-informed, I am an eyewitness to the events I describe, and I write this history so that future scholars will not have to rely, as do so many staring into the past in my day, on secondhand memories passed down over the years, details worn away by time and retelling. “First line in Return of the Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
Hi, guys. Hope you’re all doing well. 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 finished Return of the Thief by Megan Whalen Turner, and I gave it 4 stars. I’m kind of sad because this was the last book in the The Queen’s Thief series, but I also think it was a very satisfying conclusion. There were only a few questions still left unanswered but I think the author did that intentionally to have to reader think up their own answers. Other than that it’s a book where we spend a lot of time waiting. That’s very normal for books in this series but we’ve also been taught that there’s a payoff worth waiting for in the end. This was no exception. And Turner continues to be an expert in writing characters I would die for.
What are you currently reading?
I’ve picked up The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss again, and I’m 57% in. Do I have thoughts about this? Other than I’m so bored, no, not really.
I’m almost done with my reread of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I have about 100 pages left, so I hope to have my Lost in Translation post for it up this weekend.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Guys, it’s time. I’m going to start The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab. This book has gotten so much hype already that I’m honestly a little afraid to read it, but crossing my fingers I actually share the popular opinion this time.
