WWW Wednesday: 15th January 2020

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 ReadingBefore the Devil Breaks You (The Diviners, #3)

I’m having some trouble deciding on my next read so have been rereading bits of my fave books until I do.

On audio I’m still making steady progress on Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray, Think I listened to a good three or four hours. I do still have quite a way to go though and with the fourth book sitting waiting on my kindle I do feel like I need to get a shift on.


Recently Finished

Shades of Wicked (Night Rebel, #1)This Is How You Lose the Time WarThe Bromance Book Club (Bromance Book Club, #1)

Last week was my first week back at work after the Christmas break and wow, that was a shock to the system. I did however manage to finish three books, all from my backlist, the first of which was Shades of Wicked by Jeaniene Frost. I do love Jeaniene Frost’s books and her writing but I am a little on the fence about this new spinoff series. Main character Ian has never really been my favourite in the other books and it really took a while for me to warm up to him in this. It does have an absolutely stunning ending and I’m totally going to read on but I miss my Vlad.

Despite saying last week that I would have zero concentration for books and would probably be best sticking to romcoms I did for some reason decide to read This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone. It’s been sitting on my TBR for a while and I was very much looking forward to it but it was definitely not the right time to read it. It is a wonderful book, original, unique and if you can give it your full attention incredibly engaging and beautiful. But, as someone who was tired, stressed and whose brain was all over the place this was a difficult read. The language is flowery and if I’m honest difficult for me (I had to look up a few words) and the concept not the easiest to get your head around particularly as there’s little explanation and you have to just pick it up as you go. I did like it but I think I’m going to have to read it again at some point in the future when I can give it the attention it deserves.

As you can probably imagine after that book I needed something much, much easier so went for The Bromance Bookclub by Lyssa Kay Adams and boy this book was everything I needed. Funny, cute and very, very sweet. I loved the whole idea of this group of successful men reading regency romances to sort out the problems with the women in their lives.


Reading Next

I made the mistake of going to a bookstore on Saturday where I noticed that quite a few of the books sitting on my NetGalley shelf are actually out in the world already. I feel like I need to maybe make some progress with my ARCs over the next couple of weeks. I’m therefore hoping to pick up the following:-

The Night Country (The Hazel Wood, #2)Just As You AreInfinity Son (Infinity Cycle, #1)

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.

Happy Reading ❤

  1. I’m hoping to pick up Infinity Son some time soon as well! And I really have to continue the The Diviners series soon… I only read the first book and that was ages ago; I probably even need to reread the first as I don’t remember almost anything about it. xD I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading! xx

  2. I haven’t read anything by Libba Bray and I feel so left out at this point haha. I totally get that with it not being the right time to read This is How You Lose the Time War. I have that all the time, looking back at a book and thinking “I could have really enjoyed this if I read it at a different time”. Down side of being a mood reader iguess. 😋

    I hope you’ll feel less tired and stressed this week & read some more great books! 🙂

    • I know exactly what you mean. I felt like they could’ve kept the language simpler and less flowery and maybe given a little more detail. I kept finding my attention wandering and could never figure out what they were.
