WWW Wednesday – April 17th, 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?

 

  • Jade City (The Green Bone Saga, #1) by Fonda Lee – physical book
  • Scythe (Arc of a Scythe, #1) by Neal Shusterman – physical book, buddy read
  • The Lying Woods by Ashley Elston – audiobook

I’m only about 150 pages into Jade City but I’m enjoying it so far. It’s definitely one of those books that you can’t speed through, as the world is very immersive and detailed. I catch myself having to reread some paragraphs a few times until I really understand what was being said. It may take me a lot longer to finish this book than I originally planned.

I am loving Scythe. I meant to finish this past weekend but I ended being busier than I anticipated. I hope to finish it in the next couple of days though. I’m excited to see what’s going to happen next!

I just started The Lying Woods so it’s still a little early to form any opinions yet. I loved Elston’s previous novel so I have high hopes for this one as well!

What did you recently finish reading?

 

  • Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry – audiobook
  • Navigating the Stars (Sentinels of the Galaxy, #1) by Maria V. Snyder – audiobook

I absolutely loved Heretics Anonymous. It was really fun and I enjoyed the play of family dynamics amidst the issues going on at the Catholic school. I was surprised how well the religious discussion in the story was very nuanced, not swaying so far one way or the other. I appreciated that it wasn’t just one big hate fest, like I originally expected it to be.

I’m really surprised that no one is talking about Navigating the Stars. It’s such a unique concept, which is really appreciated since YA tends to rehash the same stories. I definitely recommend trying it out if you’re a fan of science fiction.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Rabbit & Robot by Andrew Smith – physical ARC
  • Tithe (Modern Faerie Tales, #1) by Holly Black – physical book
  • The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James – audiobook

What are you currently reading? What books did you finish this week? What are you planning 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 keep hearing so many great things about Scythe, I really must pick it up soon. Jade City was one that also appealed but based on how you’re finding it I suspect it may not be for me. I really struggle with books that are heavy on descriptions and world building. My brain just doesn’t take it in and I either have to keep re reading or just glide on over

    1. I definitely recommend Scythe! And yeah, Jade City is really interesting but it is one of those books that you have to take a little slower. I wasn’t really expecting that but I’m still enjoying it!
