WWW Wednesday – December 20th, 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?

  • The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh – physical book
  • Goliath (Leviathan, #3) by Scott Westerfeld – audiobook

I’m finally almost done with Goliath. I’ve only got about an hour left to listen to and I can’t wait to see how this series ends.

I’ve only barely begun The Blinds but I’m enjoying it so far. I really like the writing style and the characters. This seems like it’s going to be a really interesting read. The setting is what really sets it apart from other books that I’ve read.

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Zodiac (Zodiac, #1) by Romina Russell – 4/5 stars, Hype or Like Friday BOTM
  • Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1) by Morgan Rhodes – 3/5 stars

I really enjoyed Zodiac! The world building in this book is truly phenomenal. I haven’t heard a whole lot people talk about this series so I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, the story is fast-paced, the writing is good, and as I mentioned, the world building is awesome. I definitely plan to continue with this series and pick up the sequel next month.

Falling Kingdoms was a bit of a letdown. I think it was about 50 pages longer than what it needed to be and could use a bit of editing. I think the overall story was really interesting and enjoyed the different points of view. However, the romance seemed a bit forced and all of the male characters just come across as terrible people. I do plan to continue with this series, if only to see if it gets better with the next book.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Ash and Quill (The Great Library, #3) by Rachel Caine
  • Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang

I’m just really excited to get to both of these books. I want to kick myself for putting off picking up Ash and Quill for so long because that cliffhanger in the previous book has left me dying to see what happens next!


What books are you currently reading? Have you finished any good books this week? What do you have coming up 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 been trying to decide whether to pick up Ash and Quill or not. I was going to get it and then saw a review from someone who I tend to have similar opinions to and it made me doubt. Sometimes I think Caine’s series start strong and get weaker, certainly that seemed to be the case with the Morganville Vampires.

    I will definitely be interested to hear what you think of it once you read it.

      1. Hmm was just checking back and they do seem to be mostly positive. The review I was thinking of, the main criticism seems to be that they thought it was the final book but in fact there are now 5 in the series so it’s not the big finale they were hoping for and goes over old ground a bit.

        Caines writing is always good though so I’m sure it’ll be fine.

  2. Zodiac is one that I’ve also been dyinnnnng to get to, it really doesn’t make any sense that I haven’t yet read it seeing as astrology fascinates me. Def at the top of my Beat the Backlist in 2018, glad you enjoyed it. Bummed out over Falling Kingdoms though, I have yet to start this one also although I do own the first 3 books.Hope the sequel is stronger and fares better for you *fingers crossed* SUPER curious to hear your thoughts on The Blinds, will keep an eye out lol. I am failing at WWW but plan on returning to it in the New Year, i feel like I’ve let you down! *sobs* lol 😉

    1. Oh, I think you’ll really enjoy Zodiac once you get to it. It definitely surprised me by how much I enjoyed it!.. Yeah, I’ve got the next 2 books in the Falling Kingdoms series too. Haha! I’ve heard the series gets better with each book so I hope that’s the case… And you’re not failing me! I’m only judging a little bit that you haven’t been keeping up with it… Hahahaha!

      1. Baha!!! @ my epic failure lol, I’ll def be back at it after the holidays. I’ve heard that after the first book in The Falling Kingdoms series, it does improve but the last two have seen it get worse and worse again 😦 *sigh* I’ll be following your progress with the series before venturing in myself lol.
