WWW Wednesday – January 10th, 2018

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 Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis – audiobook
  • Ash and Quill (The Great Library, #3) by Rachel Caine
  • Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang

Slowly making my way through Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance. I’m really enjoying the sweet story, I just think that I’ve been into more action driven plots lately which has me putting this one aside more. However, I plan to finish this one this week!

I just started listening to The Female of the Species yesterday and am enjoying it so far. I was a little confused at first by what was going on but it’s starting to come together more now. I just don’t really like how Alex’s chapters are the shortest.

I picked up Ash and Quill last night and even though I’m only a couple of chapters into it, I’m already back in love with this world. I swear that this series doesn’t get enough recognition and I really wish more people picked it up. It’s awesome, y’all!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • The Jane Austen Project by Kathleen A. Flynn – audiobook, 3/5 stars
  • The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury – 4/5 stars, review to come
  • This Is Our Story by Ashley Elston – audiobook, 5/5 stars

I really enjoyed The Forbidden Wish and This Is Our Story. They were both so different from any of the other books I had read recently, with This Is Our Story becoming one of my favorite reads of 2017. The Forbidden Wish was such a beautiful retelling. The writing was just gorgeous and now I’m really interested in picking up another book from the author. I had really high hopes for The Jane Austen Project, but it just didn’t really meet my expectations. I enjoyed it but feel like there was just something missing. Maybe I should’ve read the actual book instead of just listening to the audiobook version?

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Into the Bright Unknown (Gold Seer Trilogy, #3) by Rae Carson
  • The School for Good and Evil (The School for Good and Evil, #1) by Soman Chainani
  • Wandering Star (Zodiac, #2) by Romina Russell

I’m both sad and excited to pick up the final book in the Gold Seer Trilogy. I’ve fallen head over heels for these characters that Carson has created and I’m not really ready to let them go yet. I’ve got my fingers crossed for a happy ending though!

I’m going to be buddy reading The School for Good and Evil with Britt from Geronimo Reads and am so excited to start it. I know it’s one of Reagan from PeruseProject’s favorite middle grade series and like we have the exact same reading tastes so I’m looking forward to diving into this one.

Then I plan on continuing the Zodiac series by picking up the sequel. I really enjoyed the first book when I read it last month for Hype or Like Friday. It ended on such a great cliffhanger that I cannot wait to see what happens to the characters next… probably a bunch of awful shit if it’s anything like the first novel.


What books have you read this past week? What are you currently reading? What do you plan on reading next? 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 got an extended excerpt of Forbidden Wish from NetGalley ages ago but while I really liked it I’ve never managed to get my hands on the whole book. It’s one on my too expensive right now but might get eventually list. Very happy to hear you enjoyed. Maybe I should just splurge.
