WWW Wednesday – May 16th, 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?

  • Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys – audiobook
  • War Storm (Red Queen, #4) by Victoria Aveyard – physical book

Still working my way through Out of the Easy. It’s been crazy at work this past week which has cut into my listening time. Hopefully I can get back into it soon, as I’m really enjoying this story and I can’t wait to dive more into this mystery!

I actually haven’t started War Storm yet. I finished up Furyborn right before I went to sleep last night and so I didn’t have any time to pick it up. I’m super excited and also a little nervous to see how this series is going to end. Maven has become the new Darkling for me and I’m almost sad to find out what happens to him. Because I stand by the fact that the Darkling should’ve had redemption! #stillbitter #justiceforMaven 😉

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4) by Marissa Meyer – physical book
  • Furyborn (Empirium, #1) by Claire Legrand – physical ARC

I have to say that I had a very enjoyable reading week. I finished up Winter, which was a really good ending to the Lunar Chronicles series. I do think there was some parts that could’ve been cut out of the story but other than that it was a fun read.

I also binged Furyborn in just a few days. Y’all, I went into this book thinking that it was going to be crap and unoriginal. I WAS WRONG! This book was exciting from start to finish and I am so obsessed now. The hype is real with this one and I don’t think I’m going to survive a full year until the second book is released. I will definitely be purchasing the final copy of this one! Also, please note that I would consider this to be more NA than YA. So if you don’t prefer cursing and sexual content in your books, just know that both are prevalent in this one.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas – physical book
  • Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali – physical book

It’s probably time to mix in some contemporary with my reading. While it’s not a genre that I normally gravitate towards, I’ve heard really good things about this book! I’m also kind of obsessed with this cover. The girl just looks so chic!

ACOFAS is going to be my first novella… EVER! I actually purchased Sightwitch when it was released as well but I haven’t picked it up yet. However, it’s on my TBR for this month as well, so I guess you could say that I’m about to crash into the world of novellas. Hopefully both of these live up to my expectations!


What books have you read this 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? Please leave a link to your WWW Wednesday post in the comments below!

  1. I’ve been so on the fence with continuing with the Red Queen series. I loved Red Queen so much, but Glass Sword was so bad, in my opinion. I kind of what to see how it ends, but then I’m not in any rush to read the last two books. I enjoyed Winter and thought it was a good way to end the series. I wasn’t a huge fan of the series as a whole though. I actually only really enjoyed Cinder and Winter. The other books weren’t really the greatest.

    1. Thank you!! Girl, I am obsessed with Furyborn now! I went ahead and preordered the hardcover of it yesterday. I need the sequel PRONTO!!! I was really expecting it to be mediocre at best, but it just blew me away.

  2. Great post! I am also worried about how things will end for Maven in War Storm. I am hoping he doesn’t do the predictable thing and sacrafice himself in a rushed redemption arc – but then I don’t want to see him end up like The Darkling either! I’m not sure how I would like things to end for Maven.

    I am also a little nervous about ‘A Court of Frost and Starlight’, I love how ACOWAR wrapped everything up and I’m not sure I want to read beyond that.

      1. That would be original and awesome. Not sure when I will get a chance to read it as I have just been given a lot of ebooks from a relative (free), so I am hesitant to spend the money. Probably at some stage over the next few months.
        Hope you enjoy it!
