“Lief, Barda and Jasmine walked through the crisp, bright morning.”First line in The Lake of Tears by Emily Rodda
Hi, guys. Wednesday means that my weekly update is coming right at you through WWW Wednesday. It’s 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 Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead. If you’ve been reading my latest WWW Wednesday posts, you know that this book hasn’t been a great reading experience. I ended up giving it 2 stars, because I never connected to the story or the writing style at all.
What are you currently reading?
All of 3 books! And I’m totally in love with two of them. First the one I’m not really into which is my current commute book: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo. I had an inkling that I wouldn’t like it and it has sadly proven true so far. I’m half way through at the moment, and it actually keeps reminding me of Six of Crows in the way that it’s organized. We get a lot of backstory on the characters while the rest of the story is still going on. However, my problem is that these characters and this world… aren’t very interesting.
I’m still reading The Fever King by Victoria Lee which I’m just loving more and more. I wish I had more time to read it but I have to prioritize library books.
The most important book is saved for last: I’M READING THE TOLL! I’ve waited for The Toll by Neal Shusterman for so long, and it’s surreal to actually be reading it. I’m 250 pages in and you shouldn’t doubt the fact that I’m loving it!
What do you think you’ll read next?
If I finish anything within the next week, I’m going to pick up The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson.
That’s it for the week. I haven’t been a very active blogger this week and I’m sorry but I’m totally blaming The Toll. It has taken over my life but I don’t mind. Have a great week!
