WWW Wednesday – February 20th, 2019

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?

  • Whiskey When We’re Dry by John Larison – audiobook
  • Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3) by Susan Dennard – physical book

I’m still in the first chapter of Whiskey When We’re Dry so I don’t have an opinion on this one yet. It’s a literary fiction Western which I expect will may it more of a slower listen than my usual historical fiction audiobooks.

Okay, I’m 100 pages into Bloodwitch and it’s making me realize that I should’ve reread the first two books in the series before picking this one up. Two years is a long time between releases and I remember absolutely NOTHING from the previous books. I mean I vaguely remember bits an pieces, but that’s about it. I do remember that I love Aeduan so I can’t complain that he has such a big part in this one.

What did you recently finish reading?

  • A Curse So Dark and Lonely (A Curse Do Dark and Lonely, #1) by Brigid Kemmerer – physical book, review scheduled
  • Reign of Mist (The Oremere Chronicles, #2) by Helen Scheuerer – audiobook

I super enjoyed A Curse So Dark and Lonely. It was a really unique spin on the original fairytale, with some pretty kickass characters. I’m really glad that we’re getting a sequel to the story because there is so much more to explore in this world. I can’t wait to see what will happen next!

Reign of Mist was a really good follow up to the first book. I loved seeing all of the characters come together in different ways, each bringing a new perspective to the war that is brewing. Bleak is still my fave character and Swinton is growing on me as well. I really have no idea what will happen in the next book!

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Immortal Reign (Falling Kingdoms, #6) by Morgan Rhodes – physical book
  • Pride by Ibi Zoboi – physical ARC
  • Rabbit & Robot by Andrew Smith – physical ARC

Still trying to work my way through all of my BookCon 2018 ARCs. If I can knock out two more this month, I will feel a whole lot better about myself. And of course it’s time for me to finish the Falling Kingdoms series. I’ve been putting it off because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to these characters but I think it’s finally time. I just really want a happily ever after for Magnus…

  1. I really wish that when it’s a sequel authors would put a little recap of all the important stuff that happened in previous books at the start. I can never remember everything (and really don’t have the time to re read) and it saves them from having to sneak it into the text.

    I won a copy of Truthwitch year’s ago in a Goodreads giveaway and still haven’t read it. I’m now thinking that decision may have been wise if it’s two years between books 🙂 I’ll just wait and binge read the whole series.

    1. Yesssss! Just give me like a 1-2 page summary before the first chapter and I would be so happy… I highly recommend reading it but it’s probably best to wait until the series is finished at this point. I wish I had done that, haha.

  2. I need to get to A Curse so Dark and Lonely. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it. I want to read Pride aswell, though I think I might go for the audiobook with that one.

    1. Yes, you definitely need to read it! I loved it so much and my review is going up tomorrow if you’re interested in some more in-depth thoughts on it… I’m excited for Pride. I love a good retelling and don’t read many contemporary ones.
