It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This meme was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm but was revived by Sam from Taking on a World of Words. It’s a place to talk about the books you’ve been reading, plan to read and have read. I don’t usually keep track of my reading, except for my Goodreads Challenge, but I’ve found this meme to be really helpful with keeping me on track.
To take part all you have to do is answer the following questions:
What are you currently reading?
What have you recently finished reading?
What are you going to read next?
I’m currently ONLY SLIGHTLY obsessed with the Chronicles of Nick series. This is one that I have been putting off for years and that very nearly made it on to my Top Ten Books I’m Avoiding List except for the fact that I was FINALLY reading it while making the list, ironically. As a hardcore fan of the Dark Hunters series I wasn’t immediately convinced in giving a YA version a try (hence the LONG wait) but I’m so glad that I finally caved! I have a feeling I’m going to devour this entire series in less than a week.
As for The Poet X, this is part of my Hogwarts House Battle Readathon as my Alchemy Class as it was recommended to me by the lovely Hannah over at Alpha-Beta-Hannah. I’m also giving Talon a try because I’ve been meaning to try Kagawa for a long time now (seriously my TBR is like a never-ending pit) and DRAGONS. Who could resist??
This has been a pretty average week of reading for me. There were some highs (Illuminae, Infinity and Aurora Rising) and some that weren’t all I had hoped they’d be (Catwoman and Ellie and the Harp Maker). I did manage to finish an ARC this week though, so that’s always a tick in the pro column. Plus, I finished Illuminae which counted towards my Hogwarts House Battle Readathon for Muggle Studies (a hyped book). Reviews on these to come soon!
So if you hadn’t read the first para and rather just skimmed the pics (I’m guilty of this occasionally!) you should know that I’m currently addicted to The Chronicles of Nick. I’ve also been slowly dipping my toes in to the water of graphic novels (see my review of Mooncakes) and I couldn’t resist picking up Heartstopper when I saw it at the library this week. It looks so cute!
Lastly, I’m keen to give The Cactus a try. Partially because it’s a Reese’s Book Club choice and also because the premise and cover look so interesting. I mean it’s a romance/contemporary called CACTUS. That screams of angsty goodness. I can’t wait!
