WWW Wednesday – January 20, 2016

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words.
Each week we answer the following three questions:
-What have you recently finished reading?
-What are you currently reading?
-What are you reading next?

Despite the number of books that I finished in the past week, I was disappointed with half of them so it wasn’t as great of a week as it may look.  November 9 by Colleen Hoover was AMAZING!  It literally blew my mind and I can’t wait to do the Maybe Someday readalong with the Bibliophile Gathering Goodreads group next month!  My audiobook reads were also great.  The Fellowship of the Ring was a reread for me and the only part I didn’t like about the narration was the narrator’s singing voice haha.  The Return of the Native I have never read before but I started it the day that Alan Rickman passed away because he narrated it and I needed to hear his voice.

Onto the disappointments…  Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics was a book that I had been looking forward to reading since October.  I won it in a giveaway, which is good because I ended up not liking it at all.  Even though it is a really short book, it was torture trying to get through it.  Same thing with Nirvana.  It was just a weird, confusing book.  I didn’t like it.  And Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict… not so good.

Currently I have some great reads going on!  I just started the audio reread of The Two Towers (which is my personal favorite of the trilogy).  I also started The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness.  It is my second book written by Ness.  So far I’m a little confused by the setting but I’m barely into the book yet.  The Passenger by Lisa Lutz is my current eARC read via NetGalley.  So far it’s promising.  *Last week I said I was going to start Betrayed by Lynn Carthage as my eARC but for whatever reason it doesn’t display every other page on my Kindle Fire so I started The Passenger.  It does display properly on my phone app so I will still be able to read it.*  And I have made a little progress on Under The Dome by Stephen King.  Erica and I aren’t making this book a priority since it is so big.  Taking it slow and steady.

And up next I have a few review copies to catch up on since I will have completed my January TBR with The Knife of Never Letting Go.  I won Never Tear Us Apart and The Symbolism and Sources of Outlander through LibraryThing for review.  And I won Perfect Days through Shelf Awareness for review.  I’m excited to read all of these.

What have you been reading lately?

  1. I’m sorry Daughters Unto Devils didn’t work for you! That’s a bummer. But I’m so glad you liked November 9 and are going to read Maybe Someday!! Can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

    I look forward to hearing what you think of The Passenger. I had considered it, but wasn’t sure I’d like it.

    Happy reading!!

    • Yeah, I was pretty bummed about Daughters Unto Devils. Might have been because I had a mega book hangover from November 9. I can’t wait to get to my next CoHo read.
      I’m not very far in The Passenger but so far it is intriguing.

  2. I loved November 9 as well! And a shame you didn’t like Daughers Unto Devils; I was really looking forward to it as well. Chaos Walking is one of those series I HAVE to finish this year; I loved the first book despite the painful cliffhanger ending. And I have been doubting whether to pick up Under The Dome myself, but I think I’m going to tackle some other big reads first. (Outlander, A Dance Of Dragons)
