WWW Wednesday: 16th March 2016

It’s WWW Wednesday time.

The WWW Wednesdays meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.

WWW Wednesday

To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

So here’s my W’s for the week.

Fool Me OnceCurrently Reading

I’m continuing in my mission to reduce my ARCs at the moment so I’m currently reading Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben which I received from NetGalley. It’s quite early days (I’ve only read the first chapter) but what I have read I’m liking. I have read a few of his books in the past and enjoyed them so looking forward to it. If nothing else it makes a nice change from my usual YA sci fi and fantasy.

Recently Finished

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)I was on holiday from work last week so I had a bit of a reading binge and finished five books. First up was The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. It’s a young adult dystopian with vampires but despite my initial doubts I have to admit I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately it is the first in a trilogy, so I’m fighting hard to resist buying the rest of the series. I really need to finish some of the books I already have before buying more.

The second book I finished was Gone Astray by Michelle Davies. It was another pleasant surprise as I’ve been a little disappointed with the thriller/crime books I’ve been reading recently. It’s the first book in a new series where the main character is a police family liaison officer. Ink and Bone (The Great Library, #1)It definitely gives it a unique and interesting twist. You can read my full review here.

The next book finished was  Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine (yes for once I actually read something from my reading next list). It was a book of the month read in one of my GoodReads groups and the discussion is still going so I’m waiting to post a review. I would definitely recommend it though as it’s a very good read. I’m just not sure I can wait for the next one.

Coco Pinchard's Must-Have Toy Story (Coco Pinchard, #4)Book number four of the week was the short novel, Coco Pinchard’s Must Have Toy Story by Robert Bryndza. I do love Coco Pinchard books as they always make me laugh. This time it was back to the 90’s and the hunt for that must have Christmas Toy, Tracy Island.

The final book of the week was a re read of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling.  It’s been many years since I’ve read it (I estimate at least 10) so it was a little strange but definitely enjoyable re reading it now.

Reading NextA Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic, #2)

Drum roll please…..at long, long last I can finally start A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab. It’s been sitting on my kindle for a few weeks but the Group read starts next week so I can finally start. I’m completely stunned I managed to hold out. I just hope I haven’t built it up too much 🙂

Other than that I’m not too sure so have decided not to even try to guess. I should probably be slowing my reading anyway and trying to get some reviews up instead.

So that’s my week in books, what have you been reading? Do you have any recommendations? All comments or links welcome below 🙂

  1. I’ve had my eye on The Immortal Rules for a while. Glad to hear you liked it! Ink and Bone sounded pretty good too. I’ve read some of Rachel Caine’s other books and liked them. Harry Potter rereads are always fantastic! I wish I had the kind of free time to finish five books in one week. Yay so excited to hear you’re going to read AGOS. It’s on my tbr list too, though I’ve still got to read the first book…

    • It’s a rare occurence for me to finish five and was mostly due to being off work and in the house 🙂

      I really wasn’t sure about Immortal Rules going in, and it is a little bit disjointed, but enjoyed it a lot. I definitely want to read the rest in the series so I must have liked it.

      • That’s great. I love it when a book grabs you enough to want to read the next one. There’s a lot of series I’ve only read the first book to.

    • Ink and Bone is definitely worth a read. I thought it was going to be similar to the Invisible Library which I liked but found a little slow but there’s a lot more going on. Some have said it’s a little weak on world building and description but that suits me. My biggest criticism was the main male protaganist was called Jess which threw me off. I always think of Jess as a girl’s name so had to keep reminding myself it was a boy 🙂


    • My Dad is actually the big Harlan Coben fan in my family so most of the books I’ve read have been from his bookshelf. I’ve found them enjoyable enough but not necessarily fantastically great. I was just in the mood for a bit of murder mystery 🙂

  2. Fool Me Once sounds really good and I have been wanting to get a copy of Ink And Bone for ages! Same goes for A Gathering Of Shadows; I still have to read the first book, but I want to get a copy of the sequel first so I can read them together. I hope you’ll enjoy your books this week!
