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?
I had a FANTASTIC reading week! Several of the books I read were shorter but it still helped a lot to add towards my 2016 Read My Books Challenge. I read 4 books that count towards that goal. And I listened to 3 audiobooks. I read The Winner’s Crime in anticipation of The Winner’s Kiss being released yesterday. It was really good. Then I added a couple Neil Gaiman titles under my belt. Both of them were pretty good. The illustrations in The Sleeper and the Spindle were gorgeous! Last night I stayed up an hour past my usual bed time to finish And Then There Were None. It was my first Agatha Christie novel and I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future! That book was awesome!
I did have one hiccup in the reading week and that was a DNF of Shatter Me. I was so excited to read this one because people rave about it. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get into the writing style. Too many metaphors and similes that completely took away from what was actually happening so it was just a confusing mess.
Currently I am on my 3rd reread of Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz. This time around I’ve been marking my favorite passages and important things to remember for book 2. I am currently listening to Sea of Stars by Amy A. Bartol. It is the second book in the Kricket series. I should be finished with it by the end of the work day. And this morning I started The Winner’s Kiss! I’m only 40 pages in so far but I am really enjoying it already. Very interested to see what is in store for Arin and Kestrel in this series conclusion.
Up next I will be starting The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. The Raven King (the series conclusion) will be released at the end of April so I need to prepare myself to be able to read that immediately. After The Dream Thieves I will be moving on to book 3 – Blue Lily, Lily Blue – but I didn’t include it in this list because I’m not sure if I will get to it before next week. My next audio re-read will be the conclusion to the Kricket series, Darken the Stars. I will be starting this one tomorrow at work.
