I thought I would do something different today and try the WWW Wednesday post, originally hosted by Taking in a World of Words. All you need to do is answer the three W questions below.
The three W’s are:
Right now I am just about half way through Wilder Girls by Rory Power. I have seen this book EVERYWHERE and I just had a need to read it so I picked it up and I am definitely intrigued and curious about what is about to happen in the second half of this book! Stay tuned for a review soon!
I just recently finished Ruckus by L.J. Shen which is the second book in the Sinners of Saint series. I’ve just been in a bit of a smutty reading mood of late and I had seen this series come up a lot on my recommended so I figured why not give them a try! I have been really enjoying the series so far, I gave the first two book 4/5 stars and I am definitely excited to continue on!
So I am currently participating in the NEWTS Readathon and I have been a little slacking in picking up the books from my TBR, so I was thinking for my next read going with Finale by Stephanie Garber which will get me my Acceptable for Defense Against the Dark Arts. I have been highly anticipating this read for a while now and I have just been putting it off, for no particular reason. I think I am finally ready to pick this book up and finish the series and see what Stephanie Garber has in store for me!
I’ve started to cut down a little on how many books I loan out at any one time. From my last update I had around 5/6 books loaned out and by the time they expired I had only prioritised and read 2. I feel a little guilty borrowing these books for weeks and weeks at a time and then renewing them for another couple of weeks because they had run out and I still hadn’t read them. Borrowing them and having them sit in my room staring at me while I read other books was making me a little anxious, so I’ve made a limit for myself to only borrow 2-3 books at a time now! Currently have two relatively new books that I have seen around everywhere but wasn’t invested enough to actually buy them, Recursion by Blake Crouch and The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary. I did manage to finish The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers but it wasn’t a favourite of mine unfortunately, so I am hoping I end up loving these two when I get around to picking them up!
During the Reading Rush last week I managed to reach and surpass my Goodreads Reading Goal for 2019!!! Last year I gave myself a goal of 70 books and if I remember correctly I completed that around October and just finished shy of 100 books by the end of 2018 with 99 books read. So I decided for 2019 to have a goal of 100 books because I got so close last year and because I don’t think I have ever read 100 books before in a year. To have completed and surpassed that goal by late July is amazing! I am super proud of myself and I’ve just been having a really great reading year so far and I look forward to continuing on the next 5 months and seeing how many I manage to get through by the new year!
I read Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief today for the Reading Rush completing the challenge to pick a book that has five or more words in the title and I was having the same nostalgic feels that I was having during my reread of the Harry Potter Series. It’s really helped to pull me out of the little reading funk I’ve been having of late, so I decided I am going to do a reread of the whole series like I did with Harry Potter. I am going to try and get through at least one of the books a month and then if I am still enjoying myself at the end of it I may also continue on with the Heroes of Olympus series as well! It’s been at least 3-4 years since I picked up the books so I am very excited to dive back into this world!
I’m struggling…. I am currently in the middle of two books at the moment which is unheard of for me. I’m still trying to make my through the long way to a small angry planet by Becky Chambers and I am just about halfway through Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston and to be honest they are both dragging! All of the political jargon and sub plot is really boring me and Alex is kind of getting on my nerves. And there’s a lot of mathematical, quantum physics talk happening in the long way to a small angry planet and I’m loosing focus. I’ve started skimming through most what I’m reading at this point and nothing is sinking in. I think I have to put both books back down and pick up something new and different and maybe a little fantastical! I don’t know whether or not I am going to finish Red, White and Royal Blue because as of right now its feeling like just a 3 star read for me which is getting me down, but there is still a whole second half of the book left so maybe things will pick up, I’m not quite sure what I am going to do yet! I will try and finish the long way to a small angry planet though as its intriguing me, I’m just not in the right space (lol) at the moment to get into the storyline!
