WWW Wednesday: 11th December 2019

The WWW Wednesday meme is 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 ReadingDarkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicle, #3)

I’m still working my way steadily through Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff, the third and final book in the Nevernight Chronicles, and I’m absolutely loving it. I’ve been mostly listening to it on audio so that always takes a little longer than reading (especially when it’s 21 hours long) but while I do really want to know how it all ends I don’t want Mia’s story to be over. I think I have just over three hours (100 pages) to go so I expect I’ll be finished by the weekend, although with the end approaching I may need to limit my listening to in the house as there have already been some heavy losses and I suspect the ending may break me.

The Christmas Wish ListI was kind of missing reading an actual book so despite my plan to just stick to one book at a time I have started reading The Christmas Wish List by Heidi Swain. This was a bit of a random pick from the library (I liked the cover and wanted something light and festive) but I’m starting to think it was a mistake as it’s annoying me and I’ve been avoiding reading it as a result. I should know better than to read this type of book when I’m in the kind of mood I am at the moment. December is always a super busy (and stressful) time at work, so I’m pretty tired and grumpy and suffering from a lack of empathy with the MC’s “problems”.


Recently Finished

Nothing finished this week.


Reading NextThe Honey-Don't List

I should be finished both of my current reads in the next couple of days so assuming I survive the ending of Darkdawn I think I’m going to pick up something lighter and fluffier. I managed to get a copy of Christina Lauren’s new book The Honey-Don’t List from NetGalley (it’s Read Now everyone) so I’m kind of tempted to pick it up next. It sounds like a fun read and will hopefully provide a bit of a reading palate cleanse before my next fantasy read which I think may be Finale by Stephanie Garber.

Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below. With work as busy as it is I may be a little slow in responding but I promise I’ll get there.

Happy Reading ❤

  1. Nothing wrong with taking your time reading the last book in a series, it can definitely be very emotional ha-ha. I have no idea how the Nevernight Chronicles ends but I’m wishing you all the luck with what might come 😉 Hoping you’ll enjoy your next reads too!

    • I have a bad habit of racing to the end of the last book in a series but this time around I’m enjoying taking my time. There’s so much going on, and so much detail that I already know I’m going to want to reread it after I finish.

      Thank you.

  2. I really need to give Nevernight a second chance. I tried reading it, but couldn’t get into it. I read it as an eARC though, so I couldn’t read the footnotes because they would be at the end of a chapter instead of at the end of the page like in the physical book. It was kind of annoying trying to get to the end of a chapter and then finding my page again so I gave up. I do own a physical copy though, so we’ll see what happens! I’ve recently started reading Christina Lauren books, so that’s exciting see that their new one is “read now”!

    • I found the ebook version an absolute nightmare so I can understand that. It completely breaks the flow of the story when you’re jumping back and forward trying to find your place. The physical copy is easier as the footnotes are right at the bottom of the page but I’m really liking it on audio, it’s how I managed to get into Nevernight. The narrator just reads the footnotes at the relevant point, although it’s not always obvious what’s a footnote.

  3. Oh boy I’m definitely tempted by the Honey-Don’t List as I always love having a contemporary on hand for whenever I need a change of genres…
