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’ve been wanting to read these two books for a while now! Not only are the covers so pretty and colourful but the books have quietly received so many glowing reviews.
All the Bad Apples is captivating so far and I can’t seem to put it down. We Set the Dark on Fire had a very interesting start but has seemed to plateau a bit in pace. I’m hoping it will pick up more toward the end!
Overall, this was a decent week of reading. I enjoyed One of Us is Lying however it did not seem to hold up to the hype others had placed on it. My review goes in to more depth about the reasons that it fell flat for me.
A Thousand Perfect Notes was a dark, gritty YA that was short, simple and by no means sweet. I still don’t know exactly how I feel about this book yet. It was equally heart-wrenching, emotional and overly simple with a lack of exploration in some areas where it felt desperately needed. The review will be up later today.
Next up this week will be a combo of YA fantasy (my love, my life) with Ghosts of the Shadow Market and Legend. I love Clare’s characters and have been wanting to give this one a try for a few months. Legend made my TBR list from Emer’s ( A Little Haze Book Blog) obsession and recommendation of it.
I’m also taking a small break from the usual with a mystery/crime novel The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. I was recommended this book by a friend and hope that it meets expectations. I’m always a bit wary when reading outside of my usual genres.
