The Three W’s are:

What are you currently reading?

  • Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen – audiobook
  • Lion Heart (Scarlet, #3) by A.C. Gaughen – audiobook
  • Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik – physical ARC

I haven’t listened to either of my audiobooks this past week… Oops.

I’m enjoying Spinning Silver so far. It’s definitely an interesting take on the original tale and I like how Novik has remade it into her own. I’m not too far into the book right now and so it’ll be interesting to see where the story goes from here. So far there hasn’t been a sign of any romance, but I wouldn’t mind if some shows up further in the novel. I always like at least a little bit in the background. Guess I’m a romantic at heart..

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Sightwitch (The Witchlands, #0.5) by Susan Dennard
  • Smoke and Iron (The Great Library, #4) by Rachel Caine – REVIEW
  • Brunette Ambition by Lea Michele

I’m absolutely in love with The Great Library series, so I don’t think it’s any surprise that the latest book blew me away. It was fast paced from start to finish and you could really feel the intensity of the situation our characters were in. I was on the edge of my seat the entire book! I also loved how we got points of views from almost all of the main characters at one point or another. It really brought a new facet to this series. I highly recommend it!

Sightwitch is only my second novella, but OH. MY. GOSH. It was soooo good, y’all. I loved how engrossing the story was. It really brought me back into this world and made me realize how much I had missed it. I definitely see a reread of the previous two books in my near future before Bloodwitch comes out early next year.

While Brunette Ambition wasn’t the Glee behind-the-scenes book that I was hoping for, I still enjoyed it. Michele started from the beginning as she grew up on Broadway and all of the life lessons she learned there. I also loved that she included some of her favorite recipes and skincare regimen. While I was hoping for a more in-depth look into her time on Glee, I can’t say that I was disappointed by the direction she took. This book was released less than a year after Cory Monteith’s death, and I believed was actually delayed due to that tragedy. I think it was easier for her to focus on things other than what would bring up memories of him.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Renegades (Renegades, #1) by Marissa Meyer – physical book
  • Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, #6) by Sarah J. Maas – physical book
  • Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch – physical book
