WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Books to do a little reading plan update.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Hey look, I missed a week again. I suppose that’s a good thing, as I usually write my blog posts at while I’m at work because I have nothing to do. Last week I did. It was great.
Now that I’ve got it back from the library, I’ve been making some good progress with It. And it has gotten to the point where it is no longer just creepy and is definitely becoming grosser and scarier. I can’t read it at night anymore haha.
Recently Finished: (this is two weeks worth, I don’t have that much free time)
The Bean Trees was pretty good, except for Taylor. She really didn’t have much of a personality other than “Kentucky.” And why didn’t she like, immediately go to the police when some random person dumped their child in her car?
I finally got through The Girls in the Picture. I really loved reading about these women making their own way in the world, but that ending was a bit depressing. I realize it’s based of real people, but I really wish Mary wasn’t so… sad I guess. Review coming soon.
Tracing Shadows was really hard to put down, so I didn’t. I love stories that include girls posing as boys, and Kali does a really good job of it. Full review coming next Tuesday!
The Throne of Fire is another Rick Riordan book, so of course it was amazing. I always learn a lot about mythology reading his books, while also giggling about the silliness the characters often find themselves in, and this one did not disappoint.
Iced was surprisingly not nearly as annoying as I thought it would be. I had read some reviews saying that Dani’s style of speech made them give the book a really low rating, but it didn’t bother me – but I was extremely creeped out by all the older guys lusting after a 14 year old girl. Like, gross.
The Getaway God was the accumulation of pretty much everything that had happened in the last five Sandman Slim novels, and it closed with a big bang (lolz. You have to read it to get it).
Sky in the Deep was really good. I (also) love stories about kick-ass girls, and Eelyn is about as kick-ass as you can get. This book did a really good job of building tension – there were a lot of moments when I knew something was coming, but not what or when, and when something did happen, I couldn’t always guess the outcome. Review coming soon!
The Traitor’s Game was included in February’s Dreamers & Fairies book box (my review of that is coming Saturday!), and as soon as I opened the box I had to stop myself from starting this book. It does live up to it’s name. People betray each other left and right. Also that ending! I thought that’s what was coming, but then there was a twist and it shouldn’t have been able to happen, and I kind of need an explanation. I might do a full review of this one too, we’ll see.
And with 16th Seduction out of the way, I am completely caught up with The Women’s Murder Club (for like, a month)! Which is good, because I think I might be done with it? I don’t know, it just feels a bit repetitive at this point. The cases in this one were pretty complex, which was great and there was different personal drama, also great, but I think I just don’t like the writing anymore.
Four to Score was very funny, as usual. Stephanie still hasn’t quite mastered the art of bounty hunting, but she’s teamed up with a drag queen in this one, so there’s that. Finally some Morelli action, but somehow there’s still a “will they, won’t they?” going on.
The next physical book I’ll read is The Young Elites. I actually was going to start it over the weekend, but decided to read more of It. I’ll probably get to it tonight or tomorrow. Ash Princess is my next NetGalley read, and I’ll start it after The Young Elites. Vicious is my next Overdrive read, and I’ll probably start reading right after I get this posted haha.
