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 the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon – audiobook
- Radiance by Catherynne M. Valente – physical book
- Valiant (Modern Faerie Tale, #2) by Holly Black – physical book
I have been participating in #laidbackreadathon since Saturday and have been killing it with my reading. I just started listening to What the Wind Knows on Monday and should finish it today. It’s almost a 13 hour audiobook, too! It’s a really great story. I love learning more about the Irish Revolution.
I’ve read about 75 pages into Radiance and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. Valente’s writing style can be a bit much and that’s really obvious in this novel. So I’ve set it aside for a little bit to see if I want to revisit it after Valiant. I’m only 50 pages into Valiant but I’m liking it so far. Black is definitely queen of the faerie stories and I am here for it!
What did you recently finish reading?
- The Vine Witch (Vine Witch, #1) by Luanne G. Smith – audiobook
- The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough – physical book
- Reign of the Fallen (Reign of the Fallen, #1) by Sarah Glenn Marsh – physical book, buddy read
I really enjoyed The Vine Witch and Reign of the Fallen. I was surprised by how engrossing those two books were. I sped through them really quickly. However, I wasn’t as impressed with The Thorn Birds as most people seem to be. None of the characters were really nice nor did I care much about them. They made stupid decisions constantly and I never could figure out how they would come to them. The story was interesting but the characters were not.
What do you think you’ll read next?
- Before the Devil Breaks You (The Diviners, #3) by Libba Bray – physical book
- The Devil’s Thief (The Last Magician, #2) by Lisa Maxwell – physical book
- Winter of the World (Century Trilogy, #2) by Ken Follett – physical book
