WWW Wednesday: 26th July 2017

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.

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?

Currently ReadingWe Were Liars

I started reading We Were Liars by e. lockhart yesterday and it’s so addictive I’m already around 70% of the way through. I feel like this is one of those books that everyone has read but me. I don’t know why I haven’t picked it up before now. It’s been sitting on my kindle for ages but I just don’t think I’ve been in the right mood. I am however going to see the author in Glasgow next week so I kind of felt like I should read at least one of her books 🙂

Recently Finished

It was a super busy week at work for me unfortunately (everyone bar me is on holiday) so only two books finished, This Savage Song  and Our Dark Duet by V.E. Schwab. Schwab also has an author event next week in Edinburgh so it gave me the excuse I needed to just sit and binge read both books in her Monsters of Verity Duology.

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and just read a whole series so it was great to be able to do that with these. I do kind of wish I’d picked them up a little bit sooner as I stumbled across some spoilers for the ending (why do people do this???) which put a bit of a dent in my enjoyment. I have to say therefore that while I do think Schwab has created a wonderful world and some memorable characters I preferred her Shades of Magic series.

Reading Next

As well as Victoria Schwab and E. Lockhart I’m also going to see Katherine Webber (she’s interviewing E. Lockhart) so I plan on reading Wing Jones over the weekend. I’ve heard some really great things about this book (mostly from one particular blogger) so I’m very excited to finally be reading it.

I suspect after that I’ll be totally YA’d out so I plan on flipping back to my NetGalley shelf and picking up either Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker or Yesterday by Felicia Yap. I do also have How to Stop Time by Matt Haig though and it’s proving very difficult to resist. I’m kind of hoping it’s an instruction manual so that I can actually make it through my TBR 🙂

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!

  1. We were liars has been on my TBR for a while now. Your comments about it have me intrigued. I am already tempted to move it up to my TBR. I like the vibe that Emma in the Night gives. I hope it will be an enjoyable read. Happy reading Ali 😉

    • I was reading it on the train this morning which was probably a huge mistake considering I’m nearing the end. I think I’ll finish it at home tonight.

      If you’re interested in Lockharts next book I did see it on Readers First.


  2. I haven’t read We Were Liars either. I’m not reading young adult at the moment. I go through phases with my genres and seem to be in mystery/police procedural and science fiction phases at the moment!

    I envy you going to Glasgow and meeting all the authors you’ve been reading. That will be fun! Have a great week.

  3. I remember reading We Were Liars years back and somehow not liking it that much. But I’m glad you’re liking it better! And Victoria Schwab doesn’t disappoint, right? Her books are just all amazing!

    Hope you enjoy meeting the authors next week. I’m yet to meet authors here in our country since, you know, they never go here! Haha 😀

    • I think it’s one of those books people either love or hate. I think I’m just finding it really different from the other books I’ve been reading.

      You’ll need to convince a few thousand people to read your favourite authors books and that should convince them to come 😀

  4. I personally wasn’t a fan of We Were Liars but it’s good to hear the experience was positive for you! And one of the reasons I want to read Our Dark Duet ASAP is that I haven’t been spoiled yet and that won’t last forever. 😉 I agree I prefer her Shades Of Magic books but I did love This Savage Song as well. I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading! Here’s my WWW.

    • I did get the feeling We Were Liars would be one of those books that people would love or hate. Thankfully it suited me.
      I was not happy about Our Dark Duet spoilers. Why can’t people review or tweet the author without giving the ending away. So annoying. I’m now wondering whether I need to rush off and read Vicious before someone ruins that.

      • We Were Liars is definitely a love or hate book… I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews out there. And I think you are relatively safe when it comes to Vicious since it isn’t her most popular book (although it’s still very good and love the superpower element!).


  5. I’ve never read We Were Liars before either, lol you’re not the only one! but I just checked it out! I’ll probably start it tonight! 🤗 my library doesn’t have Emma in the Night as an eBook but it sounds good enough I might actually check for a physical copy! Thanks for the awesome suggestions! 😊
