Hey guys! We’re halfway through the first week of May. I’ve been trying to break out of a reading slump, so here’s what is going on in my reading life.
WWW Wednesday is a weekly reading update hosted by Taking on a World of Words.
The Three Ws are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
This has been on my TBR forever, and I’ve seen posts about the crossover potential for Crescent City, so I switched books, and I’m going finish House of Sky and Breath after I’m done with Kingdom of Ash.
What did you recently finish reading?
A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas
I got this book as a birthday present last year. I didn’t like it as much as the other A Court of Thorns and Roses books at first. I thought Nesta was an ungrateful, selfish brat who just liked how Cassian was nice to her. I appreciate her growth throughout the book and think it’s an important book in the series .
What do you think you’ll read next?
House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas
I mentioned earlier that I switched books to avoid spoilers. I’m about 40% of the way through, and I’m fully prepared for emotional devastation. I love these characters.
What are you reading? Have you read any of these? What was the last book that emotionally devastated you? Let me know in the comments!
“I’m fully prepared for emotional devastation.” – this made me laugh out loud! That is a hard head space to get into! Good luck.
I just finished – “Meta: Game On” by author Xander Black (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09TPR2M3Q). At first glance, the plot seems similar to ready player one, but that really is only a surface level comparison. The references are fresh, the commentary is topical, and the world is believable. With “Meta” becoming a hot topic in our real world, reading this felt like a glimpse into a very possible future. The author clearly has done his homework and writes in a way that had me occasionally white knuckling the book, laughing out loud, or legitimately awed at his use of topical trends woven into his “fantasy” story. At its core, this book is a murder mystery set in a virtual world where two friends need to clear their name after being accused of murdering several high-profile gamers (and their avatars).
I am currently reading – “Station Eleven” by Emily St. John Mandel – I LOVED the limited HBO series so I am hoping the book is better…. So far it’s starting a little slow… (fingers crossed it picks up)
Next on my list is – “A Beginning at the End” by Mike Chen
Looks like I’m into reading about the bleak future for us all…. lol… Happy Reading!
