WWW Wednesday – December 13th, 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
  • Zodiac (Zodiac, #1) by Romina Russell – physical book, Hype or Like Friday BOTM

Still working my way through Goliath. I still haven’t really been listening to it lately but hope to get back into it and finish it up this week sometime.

Currently about 130 pages into Zodiac and am actually pleasantly surprised so far. I hadn’t really seen a many reviews on this series and so I was expecting it to be silly and superficial. However, that hasn’t been the case at all. The world-building in this book is FANTASTIC. Russell has done an amazing job creating this science fiction world and mythology around astrological signs. It was a little difficult keeping up with all of the new terminology at the beginning, but it’s much easier now. I’m really excited to see where the story goes from here.

What did you recently finish reading?

  • The Dark Days Pact (Lady Helen, #2) by Alison Goodman – 5/5 stars, Review
  • Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King, #1) – 4/5 stars

Both of these books were really fun. I absolutely loved The Dark Days Pact. I’m seriously trash for this series and I’m not ashamed to admit it. It’s soooo good and I need the next book immediately!!! Daughter of the Pirate King was really fun too. I loved how sassy Alosa was. I think my only complaint is that I had already figured out both “reveals” early on in the story.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh
  • Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1) by Morgan Rhodes

Since I’ve been reading a lot of science fiction and fantasy (typical, Larkin!) lately, I decided to mix it up with a contemporary psychological thriller. This is obviously not a normal genre for me but I’m pretty excited about it because that premise sounds so intriguing. Falling Kingdoms has been on my TBR for foreverrrrrr. It’s about time that I actually pick it up, especially since this series sounds so me.

What are you currently reading? What books have you finished this week? Have you read any of the books on my list? If so, what did you think of them? Do you ever get the itch to deviate from your typical genres? Leave a link to your WWW Wednesday post in the comments below!
