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?

Currently Reading

  • The Oracle Year by Charles Soule – physical book
  • Now Entering Addamsville by Francesca Zappia – audiobook

I’m currently in the middle of both of these books and enjoying them. I will say that I had no idea that Now Entering Addamsville was a paranormal mystery but I am so into it. I feel like maybe I should read more of those now. Also, The Oracle Year is really interesting. I’m loving seeing how all different sides are viewing these predictions and the man behind them. It seems very real on what it would be like if it truly happened in real life.

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia – audiobook
  • The Devil’s Thief (The Last Magician, #2) by Lisa Maxwell – physical book
  • Artemis by Andy Weir – physical book

I absolutely loved The Devil’s Thief, enjoyed Tuesday Mooney, and truly disliked Artemis. I enjoyed the plot, but felt the characters were very flat and Weir’s writing style is truly pedantic. That man has very high opinions of his scientific knowledge and loves showing it off… It makes me want to hurl.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy, #1) by S.A. Chakraborty – audiobook, reread
  • Aurora Burning (Aurora Cycle, #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – physical book
  • The Philosopher’s Flight (The Philosophers Series, #1) by Tom Miller – physical book

Currently Reading

  • Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia – audiobook
  • The Devil’s Thief (The Last Magician, #2) by Lisa Maxwell – physical book
  • Artemis by Andy Weir – physical book

I’m a little over halfway through Artemis. And while I’m enjoying it, I hate the extensive science lessons that Weir thinks we need to have every other paragraph. There’s a reason I didn’t read The Martian, dude. Please save your need to sound really intelligent for someone else.

I’m also a 1/4 of the way through The Devil’s Thief and loving it so far. I like how the different POVs are giving us insight into what’s happening from completely different perspectives. There’s a lot going on but I’m enjoying every second of it.

I hope to finish Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by tomorrow. It’s a fun story and has turned into something a little different than what I was expecting. I think this is actually about grief and that was something I had no idea was even going to be a topic when I first picked it up. I like that but I much prefer the game and mystery aspect more… Sorry!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Descendant of the Crane by Joan He – physical book
  • Things in Jars by Jess Kidd – audiobook

Things in Jars was such a good book. It was entertaining and interesting and I never knew what was going to happen next. I highly recommend the audiobook version for it as well. The narrator did such an awesome job with all of the voices and accents. You won’t regret it!

Descendant of the Crane was a little bit of a letdown. It was an interesting story and I loved the actual plot, but I think the world-building could have used a bit more exploration. It didn’t feel complete to me and there wasn’t enough information given to understand it. The ending left a strong possibility for a sequel and so I’m hoping that those issues could be remedied with the second book.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • The Last Equation of Isaac Severy by Nova Jacobs – physical book
  • The Oracle Year by Charles Soule – physical book
  • The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy, #1) by S.A. Chakraborty – audiobook, reread

Currently Reading

  • Descendant of the Crane by Joan He – physical book
  • Things in Jars by Jess Kidd – audiobook

I actually should finish both of these books up today. I’m enjoying both, though I think I prefer Things in Jars overall. I’m still making my mind up on how I feel about Descendant of the Crane. There are just some things about the world-building that don’t quite make sense to me and I find myself getting a little confused at times. Hopefully things will all make sense in the end! But Things in Jars is truly delightful – a little creepy, unique, and full of interesting characters.

  • The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee – audiobook
  • Dance of Thieves (Dance of Thieves, #1) by Mary E. Pearson – physical book
  • House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1) by Sarah J. Maas – physical book

Words cannot describe how much I loved all three of these books. Crescent City ended up being everything I had hoped it would and more. Maas knocked it out of the park with her first adult fantasy. Dance of Thieves was sooo good. I literally cannot wait to pick up the sequel to find out what will happen next! And The Downstairs Girl was very unique for a historical fiction. It showed us a time that’s hardly shown in novels, as well as painting it from a different perspective. I definitely recommend it!

  • Dance of Thieves (Dance of Thieves, #1) by Mary E. Pearson – physical book

I finally decided to DNF Oona Out of Order for now, as I just wasn’t really feeling it. I think it was the best decision I could have made because after listening to two chapters of The Downstairs Girl last night, I am hooked. I think this book could easily become a new favorite of mine! Shout out to my #talkinglit girls for helping pick it out for me!

I am super excited to start reading Dance of Thieves today. I’ve heard some awesome things about this book. I LOVED the prequel trilogy to it and so I’m pretty sure I’m going to love this one as well. I am ready to dive back into this world!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Straight On Till Morning (Disney Twisted Tales) by Liz Braswell – physical book
  • Starsight (Skyward, #2) by Brandon Sanderson – physical book

Holy guacamole… STARSIGHT IS AMAZING!!! I wasn’t sure how Sanderson was going to be able to match the awesomeness of Skyward. But have no fear, he freaking surpassed it! This book was everything I want in a science fiction novel. It was full of action, sass, and all of the aliens. I am dying for the next installment.

I really enjoyed Straight On Till Morning as well. It ended up being a feminist retelling that focused more on friendship than anything else. I loved Wendy’s personality and her relationship with Tinker Bell. My one regret was that there wasn’t enough Peter Pan. He played a very small part in this book which was kind of a bummer.

  • Oona Out of Order by Margarita Montimore – audiobook
  • Straight On Till Morning (Disney Twisted Tales) by Liz Braswell – physical book

I think I have officially decided to DNF Oona Out of Order. The story isn’t grabbing me like I had hoped it would and I have felt no need to want to listen to it in a few weeks now. Might as well cut my losses for the moment and maybe try again in the future.

I am really enjoying Straight On Till Morning. It’s fun and I love that some of the directions the author has taken in the “twisted” aspect. I think the only issue I am having is that I want more Peter Pan. He’s barely been in one scene the entire book and no offense to Wendy (who is really funny), but Peter is the one that we’re all interested in.

  • Shadow Run (Kaitan Chronicles, #1) by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller

I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and and really engaging from start to finish. I’m not sure how it has flown under the radar but I’m glad I was able to come across it in the bookstore. I definitely plan to read the sequel to find out what will happen to the crew next.

  • Shadow Run (Kaitan Chronicles, #1) by Adrianna Strickland & Michael Miller

I plan to finish Shadow Run today and am really enjoying it. It’s been full of action and is actually a little darker in tone than what I was expecting and I really like that aspect to it. I am really looking forward to seeing how this book ends and I definitely plan to pick up the sequel.

I am about a third of the way through Oona Out of Order and so far, I don’t see what the hype is all about. It’s kind of slow and not much has happened, nor is Oona a very interesting character. I’ve heard it should be getting better soon, but I haven’t listened to it recently as I’ve put it aside for the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast. I’ll probably listen to it again soon though.

  • Serpent & Dove (Serpent & Dove, #1) by Shelby Mahurin – physical book

  • Before the Devil Breaks You (The Diviners, #3) by Libba Bray – physical book
  • Oona Out of Order by Margarita Montimore – audiobook

I’m really enjoying Before the Devil Breaks You. I love how creepy this series can be and this book is no exception so far. I’m about halfway through this series and hope to get a lot of reading done by the end of the week.

I’m starting Oona Out of Order today and really excited for it. Everyone I know has really enjoyed it and you know I love a good time traveling novel. I mean, I literally just listened to What the Wind Knows, haha!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon – audiobook
  • Valiant (Modern Faerie Tale, #2) by Holly Black – physical book
  • The Rejected Writers’ Book Club (Southlea Bay, #1) by Suzanne Kelman – audiobook

I enjoyed What the Wind Knows, but it didn’t quite reach a 5 star read for me. I think I was actually less invested in the love story part than I was of the actual political issues going on in Ireland. Ireland is my favorite place and I loved getting to learn a little more about the revolution that was going on during this time. It’s both fascinating and extremely tragic.

I also really loved Valiant. Holly Black just gets my twisted little soul so much. Apparently, this book is most people’s least favorite of the trilogy but I don’t quite agree. This was a very different type of story from Kaye and Roiben’s, but I enjoyed that change of view. It was really dark and the murder mystery was a nice addition to the plot. I just wish we would have gotten more of the faerie scenes, rather than so much of the runaways just laying around.

The Rejected Writers’ Book Club was a cute book but nothing special. I liked the characters more than the actual plot. I think I’ve just realized that chick-lit just isn’t my type of genre. I think probably because of the contemporary setting.

Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia

Release Date: October 8th, 2019

A dying billionaire sends one woman and a cast of dreamers and rivals on a citywide treasure hunt in this irresistible novel by the author of Bellweather Rhapsody.

Tuesday Mooney is a loner. She keeps to herself, begrudgingly socializes, and spends much of her time watching old Twin Peaks and X-Files DVDs. But when Vincent Pryce, Boston’s most eccentric billionaire, dies—leaving behind an epic treasure hunt through the city, with clues inspired by his hero, Edgar Allan Poe—Tuesday’s adventure finally begins.

Puzzle-loving Tuesday searches for clue after clue, joined by a ragtag crew: a wisecracking friend, an adoring teen neighbor, and a handsome, cagey young heir. The hunt tests their mettle, and with other teams from around the city also vying for the promised prize—a share of Pryce’s immense wealth—they must move quickly. Pryce’s clues can’t be cracked with sharp wit alone; the searchers must summon the courage to face painful ghosts from their pasts (some more vivid than others) and discover their most guarded desires and dreams.

A deliciously funny ode to imagination, overflowing with love letters to art, from The Westing Game to Madonna to the Knights of the Round Table, Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts is the perfect read for thrill seekers, wanderers, word lovers, and anyone looking for an escape to the extraordinary.

INTO_THE_CROOKED_PLACE6

Into the Crooked Place (Into the Crooked Place, #1) by Alexandra Christo

Release Date: October 8th, 2019

The streets of Creije are for the deadly and the dreamers, and four crooks in particular know just how much magic they need up their sleeve to survive.

Tavia, a busker ready to pack up her dark-magic wares and turn her back on Creije for good. She’ll do anything to put her crimes behind her.

Wesley, the closest thing Creije has to a gangster. After growing up on streets hungry enough to swallow the weak whole, he won’t stop until he has brought the entire realm to kneel before him.

Karam, a warrior who spends her days watching over the city’s worst criminals and her nights in the fighting rings, making a deadly name for herself.

And Saxony, a resistance fighter hiding from the very people who destroyed her family, and willing to do whatever it takes to get her revenge.

Everything in their lives is going to plan, until Tavia makes a crucial mistake: she delivers a vial of dark magic—a weapon she didn’t know she had—to someone she cares about, sparking the greatest conflict in decades. Now these four magical outsiders must come together to save their home and the world, before it’s too late. But with enemies at all sides, they can trust nobody. Least of all each other.

The Twelve by Cindy Lin

Release Date: July 2nd, 2019

The Zodiac Legacy meets Spirit Animals in this epic, own-voices middle grade fantasy duology.

Usagi can hear a squirrel’s heartbeat from a mile away and soar over treetops in one giant leap. She was born in the year of the wood rabbit, and it’s given her extraordinary zodiac gifts. But ever since the mysterious, vicious Dragonlord hunted down her parents and all those with zodiac powers, Usagi has been very careful to keep hers—and those of her rambunctious little sister, Uma—a secret.

But when Uma grows too bold with her powers, she is captured by the Dragonguard. Usagi barely escapes, and does so only with the help of the mysterious Heirs of the Twelve, a mystical group of skilled warriors who once protected the land.

As new mysteries unfold, Usagi must decide who she stands with and who she trusts, as she takes on deadly foes on her path to the elusive, dangerous Dragonlord himself.

Blackberry & Wild Rose by Sonia Velton

Release Date: Available

When Esther Thorel, the wife of a Huguenot silk-weaver, rescues Sara Kemp from a brothel she thinks she is doing God’s will. Sara is not convinced being a maid is better than being a whore, but the chance to escape her grasping ‘madam’ is too good to refuse.

Inside the Thorels’ tall house in Spitalfields, where the strange cadence of the looms fills the attic, the two women forge an uneasy relationship. The physical intimacies of washing and dressing belie the reality: Sara despises her mistress’s blindness to the hypocrisy of her household, while Esther is too wrapped up in her own secrets to see Sara as anything more than another charitable cause.

It is silk that has Esther so distracted. For years she has painted her own designs, dreaming that one day her husband will weave them into reality. When he laughs at her ambition, she strikes up a relationship with one of the journeyman weavers in her attic who teaches her to weave and unwittingly sets in motion events that will change the fate of the whole Thorel household.

A book that carries the scent of other worlds in its pages, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure, and danger.

There Will Come a Darkness (There Will Come a Darkness, #1) by Katy Rose Pool

Release Date: September 3rd, 2019

For generations, the Seven Prophets guided humanity. Using their visions of the future, they ended wars and united nations―until the day, one hundred years ago, when the Prophets disappeared.

All they left behind was one final, secret prophecy, foretelling an Age of Darkness and the birth of a new Prophet who could be the world’s salvation . . . or the cause of its destruction. As chaos takes hold, five souls are set on a collision course:

A prince exiled from his kingdom.
A ruthless killer known as the Pale Hand.
A once-faithful leader torn between his duty and his heart.
A reckless gambler with the power to find anything or anyone.
And a dying girl on the verge of giving up.

One of them―or all of them―could break the world. Will they be savior or destroyer? Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Children of Blood and Bone, and An Ember in the Ashes.

The Guinevere Deception (Camelot Rising, #1) by Kiersten White

Release Date: November 5th, 2019

There was nothing in the world as magical and terrifying as a girl.

Princess Guinevere has come to Camelot to wed a stranger: the charismatic King Arthur. With magic clawing at the kingdom’s borders, the great wizard Merlin conjured a solution–send in Guinevere to be Arthur’s wife . . . and his protector from those who want to see the young king’s idyllic city fail. The catch? Guinevere’s real name–and her true identity–is a secret. She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot.

To keep Arthur safe, Guinevere must navigate a court in which the old–including Arthur’s own family–demand things continue as they have been, and the new–those drawn by the dream of Camelot–fight for a better way to live. And always, in the green hearts of forests and the black depths of lakes, magic lies in wait to reclaim the land. Arthur’s knights believe they are strong enough to face any threat, but Guinevere knows it will take more than swords to keep Camelot free.

Deadly jousts, duplicitous knights, and forbidden romances are nothing compared to the greatest threat of all: the girl with the long black hair, riding on horseback through the dark woods toward Arthur. Because when your whole existence is a lie, how can you trust even yourself?

The Stationary Shop by Marjan Kamali

Release Date: June 18th, 2019

Roya is a dreamy, idealistic teenager living in 1953 Tehran who, amidst the political upheaval of the time, finds a literary oasis in kindly Mr. Fakhri’s neighborhood book and stationery shop. She always feels safe in his dusty store, overflowing with fountain pens, shiny ink bottles, and thick pads of soft writing paper.

When Mr. Fakhri, with a keen instinct for a budding romance, introduces Roya to his other favorite customer—handsome Bahman, who has a burning passion for justice and a love for Rumi’s poetry—she loses her heart at once. And, as their romance blossoms, the modest little stationery shop remains their favorite place in all of Tehran.

A few short months later, on the eve of their marriage, Roya agrees to meet Bahman at the town square, but suddenly, violence erupts—a result of the coup d’etat that forever changes their country’s future. In the chaos, Bahman never shows. For weeks, Roya tries desperately to contact him, but her efforts are fruitless. With a sorrowful heart, she resigns herself to never seeing him again.

Until, more than sixty years later, an accident of fate leads her back to Bahman and offers her a chance to ask him the questions that have haunted her for more than half a century: Why did he leave? Where did he go? How was he able to forget her?

Time After Time by Lisa Grunwald

Release Date: June 11th, 2019

On a clear December morning in 1937, at the famous gold clock in Grand Central Terminal, Joe Reynolds, a hardworking railroad man from Queens, meets a vibrant young woman who seems mysteriously out of place. Nora Lansing is a Manhattan socialite whose flapper clothing, pearl earrings, and talk of the Roaring Twenties don’t seem to match the bleak mood of Depression-era New York. Captivated by Nora from her first electric touch, Joe despairs when he tries to walk her home and she disappears. Finding her again—and again—will become the focus of his love and his life.

Nora, an aspiring artist and fiercely independent, is shocked to find she’s somehow been trapped, her presence in the terminal governed by rules she cannot fathom. It isn’t until she meets Joe that she begins to understand the effect that time is having on her, and the possible connections to the workings of Grand Central and the solar phenomenon known as Manhattanhenge, when the sun rises or sets between the city’s skyscrapers, aligned perfectly with the streets below.

As thousands of visitors pass under the famous celestial blue ceiling each day, Joe and Nora create a life unlike any they could have imagined. With infinite love in a finite space, they take full advantage of the “Terminal City” within a city, dining at the Oyster Bar, visiting the Whispering Gallery, and making a home at the Biltmore Hotel. But when the construction of another landmark threatens their future, Nora and Joe are forced to test the limits of freedom and love.

Delving into Grand Central Terminal’s rich past, Lisa Grunwald crafts a masterful historical novel about a love affair that defies age, class, place, and even time.
