WWW Wednesday – February 28th, 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?

  • Wandering Star (Zodiac, #2) by Romina Russell – physical book
  • Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View by Ben Acker – physical book
  • The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy – audiobook

I have 2 hours left to listen to on The Disappearances. My goal is to try and finish it today but we’ll see how that goes.

I haven’t made any progress on From a Certain Point of View as I ended up going out of town this past weekend. However, I have no plans this coming weekend and hope to get through more of it then. I just wish I felt more invested in these stories but I think my connection is with our beloved characters and less than 15 pages isn’t enough time for me to really connect with all of these new ones. I’m thinking that short stories just aren’t really my thing.

Oh man, I’m so glad I decided to jump back into the world of Zodiac with Wandering Star. There have been so many twists and turns in this second book that I’m just blow away. The world-building continues to be even more spectacular as well. I really wish more people would pick up this series and give it a try. It’s one hell of a ride!

  • The Belles (The Belles, #1) by Dhonielle Clayton – physical book, REVIEW

I really enjoyed this one! I was worried that all of the hype was going to build it up to much, but luckily the hype was all true! The story is incredibly engrossing and the world-building is just beautiful. However, I think the characters were a little too one dimensional but I think there’s room for growth as the series progresses.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Honor Among Thieves (The Honors, #1) by Rachel Caine & Ann Aguirre – physical ARC
  • Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms, #3) by Morgan Rhodes – physical book
  • The Shadow Hour (The Girl at Midnight, #2) by Melissa Grey – physical book

Other than picking up Honor Among Thieves, I still want to stick with my plan to catch up on series that I’ve already started. With the final book in the Falling Kingdoms series having just been released, I can finally check another series off as soon I catch up (YAYYYYYY!). The Girl at Midnight trilogy is also fully released so make that two series that I can complete really soon. I’ll feel so accomplished when that happens, hahaha!

  1. I have really got to write up my review of the Belles but I’m struggling, particularly given the author’s recent tweets. I did enjoy it but it took me a while to get into it and never really took to any of the characters. I do think it has potential as a series though.

    1. I guess I missed those tweets? I haven’t really been very active on Twitter lately. But I agree, the characters were probably the biggest letdown of the book. I did really enjoy the overall premise and story though.
