Paper and Fire (The Great Library, #2) by Rachel Caine

This series is so unique and fun. It really tackles some interesting topics that I wasn’t really expecting when I first picked up Ink and Bone. I had never imagined what life would be like if the government was basically controlled by a library, THE library if we’re really nitpicking. Usually in dystopian novels, the government has completely eradicated or kept books and knowledge away from the masses, whereas in this series, its the complete opposite. It really makes you think, is there really any difference between the two?

What did you recently finish reading?

The Midnight Star (The Young Elites, #3) by Marie Lu

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2) & Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas

I’m highly entertained by my experiences with the Throne of Glass series so far. I’ve only read the first 3 books in the series, so this could certainly change as I continue on with the next 2 books. However, while I was expecting to hate it, they’re actually a pretty fun read. Are they riddled with problems? Hell yes! But I made the comparison recently in that I view this series along the lines of Percy Jackson and The Mortal Instruments – these books are pure entertainment. You can read my review for Crown of Midnight HERE.

As for The Midnight Star…. WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING, LU?! This book was entirely too short for it to rap up such an intriguing and engrossing trilogy. I just feel extremely let down by how this story ended. Maybe it’s my fault for having such high hopes and pent up anticipation, or maybe Lu just really dropped the ball on this one. I’m going to go with the latter.

What do you think you’ll read next?

How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather

I’m going to start this one next – just in time for Halloween. I’m pretty intrigued by the premise for this book and cannot wait to see how it turns out. I’m also purposefully staying trying to stay away from too many reviews about it so I can go into as blind as possible.

Like a River Glorious (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #2) by Rae Carson

I was pleasantly surprised by the first book in this series, as I was afraid it was going to be slow and boring. SO WRONG. I’ve been itching to read this sequel ever since and now I finally have my hands on it! And y’all, just look at that gorgeous over.

A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes, #2) by Sabaa Tahir

I was less impressed with An Ember in the Ashes than most people were. However, I did think it ended on a strong note so I figured I’ll stick with this series to see where it leads. I’m not as excited about reading this book as I am the other two on my TBR, but hopefully it surprises me. Fingers crossed!


What does your WWW Wednesday look like? Have you read any of the books on my list? What are your thoughts on them?

  1. I read the first two books in The Great Library for review this year and they’re awesome! I’m glad to see someone else enjoying them because not a lot of people have read them.
    I’m currently reading A Girl of Fire and Thorns but I really want to read WOEAS soon, was it good?

    1. Yes! I’ve been trying to convince some friends of mine to read them because they’re so good!
      And I think so! It was definitely better than what I thought it was going to be. I was afraid it’d be a bit boring but it never was. I’m really excited about LARG!

    1. I definitely recommend it! It’s a really interesting series that’s part steampunk, alternate history, and dystopian… And yeah, I can totally understand with ToG. I think that’s a big issue when it comes to series that get really long like that. Just takes too long and you can lose interest.
