WWW Wednesday – November 15th, 2017

Welcome to WWW Wednesday which is currently being hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. It’s really just a place to do little update on what all you’ve been reading lately. Anyone is welcome to join, just leave a link to your post in the comments and be sure to give the appropriate credit to Sam!

The Three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

  • Goliath (Leviathan, #3) by Scott Westerfeld – audiobook
  • Ross Poldark (Poldark, #1) by Winston Graham – physical book

I’m powering through this finale of the Leviathan Trilogy. This is definitely an interesting series and I really wish more people would pick it up. I think we could all use a little more steampunk in our reading lives.

I just started Poldark last night and so I’m not too far into it. I already know that I’m going to love this series though, because I watch the tv show which is just finishing up its 3rd season. You could say that my mother and I are just a tad obsessed with it. IT’S SO SO SO GOOD.

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Behemoth (Leviathan, #2) by Scott Westerfeld – audiobook, 4/5 stars
  • Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2) by Marissa Meyer – physical book, 5/5 stars, Review
  • Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch – physical book, 5/5 stars, Review
  • Forest of a Thousand Lanterns (Rise of the Empress, #1) by Julie C. Dao – physical book, 3/5 stars
  • City of Saints & Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson – Hype or Like Friday BOTM, 4/5 stars

I had another pretty good reading week as I finished up buddy read, Love & Gelato with Britt @ Geronimo Reads. Such a cute contemporary! I also finished up listening to Behemoth, as evidenced by my currently listening to the finale, Goliath. I read Scarlet, which I loved even more than Cinder. I am so jumping on the Captain Thorne bandwagon. He kills me, haha!

Then I moved on to Forest of a Thousand Lanterns. I have very mixed feelings with this book, y’all. I loved the overall story but I HATEEEEE Xifeng as a main character. Now, I’m all for antiheroes and what not, but she’s not even an antihero, just a terrible person. I literally spent the whole book wanting to punch her in the face. I’m going to continue with the series, but only because I’m hoping the next book follows Jade as the MC. If it doesn’t, I’m going to be really freaking pissed.

I really enjoyed City of Saints & Thieves. I’ll have a full review posted up for that book on the last Friday of the month, so be on the look out!

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Dark Days Pact (Lady Helen, #2) by Alison Goodman

I was originally planning to participate in Tome Topple, but I’ve since changed my mind as I wasn’t really in the mood to pick up any of the TBR books over 500 pages that I have. So, instead I’m just going to focus on reading what I am in the mood for – namely diving back into this series that I’ve become obsessed with after finishing The Dark Days Club last month. So excited!!!


What have you read this week? What are you currently reading? What are you reading next on your TBR? Have you read any of the books on my list? If so, what did you think of them? Leave a link to your WWW Wednesday post in the comments below!

  1. I’ve seen quite a few negative reviews of Leviathan that have kind of put me off. I wonder if it maybe works better as an audio.

    I have a copy of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns which I haven’t gotten around to. What did you think of it? Will you be posting a review?

    1. Really? I hadn’t really heard anything about it before I grabbed it from Audible. I really like the audiobook because Alan Cumming does an awesome job narrating it.

      Ehhhhh, it didn’t really live up to the hype for me. My review is actually scheduled for tomorrow though so you’ll get all of my feelings for it. 😁

      1. I’ve heard a few people say they found it a struggle. Not necessarily that it was bad, they just couldn’t get into it. Oh, Alan Cumming would be brilliant.

        I maybe won’t rush to Forest, plenty more books on the shelf 🙂
