The WWW Wednesday 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.
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?
Here’s this weeks WWW.
I just started King’s Cage, the third book in Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen series, yesterday. I was planning to buy this but it popped up on NetGalley and I couldn’t resist requesting on the off chance I was approved and luckily I was. Thank you Orion Publishing 🙂
I read the first two books in the series towards the end of last year and absolutely loved them and, as Glass Sword finished with a big cliffhanger, I’ve been anxiously awaiting this book. Early days but so far so good.
I’ve kind of parked The Ninth Rain by Jen Williams for the moment as I just couldn’t get into it. I am around 40% in but I’ve been so busy at work I just didn’t have the concentration needed to follow what’s going on and really appreciate it. I will go back to it but will probably wait till later in the month when I’m on holiday.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins is also on hold for the moment as it returned itself to the library and someone else has borrowed it. It’s looking like it might be a good few weeks before I get it back. In the meantime, I’ve started Storm Siren by Mary Weber on audio. I’ve listened to a couple of hours so far and quite enjoying it.
The first book finished this week was Mystery at Maplemead Castle by Kitty French. It’s the second book in the Chapelwick Mysteries series which is about Melody Bittersweet who runs the Girl’s Ghostbusting Agency. This time Melody and the gang are called in to get rid of some ghosts causing trouble in a castle.
I love Kitty French books and couldn’t resist requesting this from NetGalley. I liked it a lot. It’s quirky, funny and also had me a bit teary at times. It’s out at the beginning of March so I’ll post a review closer to then.
The second book read was Sleeping Beauty by K.M. Shea. It’s the 8th book in her Timeless Fairy Tales series and like the others is a really enjoyable and easy read. What I love about Shea’s books is that they always have feisty and independent heroines who don’t wait around for Prince Charming to save them (although Sleeping Beauty kind of has to).
The third and final book finished was Sunbolt by Intisar Khanani. This was a novella I bought from Amazon a while back but hadn’t gotten around to reading. It did however fit a challenge this week and was a quick read so I managed to sneak it in.
It is short but it’s a great story and I really want to read more by this author (edit: I’ve just bought the sequel).
I’m doing a team challenge again so it seems likely that I will be wandering from my reading plan again to find some books that fit. I do still plan on reading NetGalley ARCs Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse and The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion but I think I’m also going to try and fit in The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. This will be my first Gaiman book so I’m really looking forward to it.
Have you read any of the books above or have any other book you’d recommend? Leave comments and links below and I’ll respond when I can.
Happy Wednesday everyone.
