WWW Wednesday – February 5th, 2020

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?

  • The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough – physical book
  • Dark Age (Red Rising, #5) by Pierce Brown – physical book
  • Suggested Reading by David Connis – audiobook

I did make some more progress in The Thorn Birds over the weekend. But man, that book was upsetting me so much that I decided to start on Dark Age to help break it up some. Except ever since then, I can’t put Dark Age down. This book has got hook line and sinker. Which I should have known would happen since this series is probably my all-time favorite, right up next to Harry Potter… Yes, you read that right. Seriously people, if you haven’t read it, DO IT.

I also started listening to Suggested Reading, which you can definitely tell is written by someone who loves books. It’s a really interesting story so far, though I do find the dialogue to be a little much. I think Connis is writing like he thinks high school students talk and not how they actually do. Though to be fair, that’s super normal in YA books and reminds me of another writer *cough* John Green *cough*.

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly – physical book, buddy read
  • Furyborn (Emipirium Trilogy, #1) by Claire Legrand – audiobook, reread

I really enjoyed both of these books. I had previously read the physical book of Furyborn and really enjoyed it. It was a much different experience listening to the audio version and not sure I really liked it that way. The narrator kind of annoyed me. However, I’m super excited I decided to revisit the story so I can finally pick up the sequel this month.

I loved Lilac Girls. It was a very different kind of WWII novel and I loved that it visited it from a different perspective than the usual.  It was definitely a heavy read in some places and every chapter ends in a cliffhanger so you’re on the edge of your seat the entire time. Definitely worth the read if you enjoy historical fiction novels!

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Kingsbane (Emipirium Trilogy, #2) by Claire Legrand – physical book
  • The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White – audiobook
  • Radiance by Catherynne M. Valente – physical book
