WWW Wednesday – 6th May 2020

April was better… just saying

Welcome to my WWW Wednesday meme post, originally hosted by Taking in a World of Words. All I need to do is answer the three questions below which all start with a W.

The three W’s are
  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll be reading next?

Rebel (Legend #4) by Marie Lu – I didn’t know this was out!!!It popped up on my library e-audiobook service. I was shocked! and reserved it straight away! Just getting back into it. The end of Champion (Legend #3) has always stuck with me and I feel is a very open ending though I never expected another book in the series. Yay!

The Girl and The Stars by Mark Lawrence – This is my first Mark Lawrence book and I’m loving this ice cold world! It’s so different and so well done (evidence of years of writing experience of the author). It’s YA and female lead written by a man which normally makes me stop in my tracks and rewind. But Lawrence has already had a very successful female lead series out so I feel its a safe jump. However, my first issue (in relation to male author with female MC) is how is the MC having her periods if she is sown into a second skin and needs a knife to get out…?!? I’m genuinely curious about this, maybe I can do the same.

Jordmor pa Jorda by Edvind Hoem – I’m back reading this one though no progress since last time. I’m on about 120 pages. This is a slow read but very interesting. A mix between non-fiction and historical fiction. Very original.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – This was OK. I understand why people love it and it is a good book, but I struggle with the first half of the book. In the star you are promised a competition and then the book spend 250 pages describing the circus which introducing characters and not about the competition. I know it goes on in the background but I just wanted more from the main plot line during those first 250 pages. It was a beautiful book though.

According to my May TBR there is plenty to jump on to, but TomeTopple starts on Saturday 9th May so whatever I start will be on that TBR. Unless I manage to squeeze another book in before Saturday morning…


until next time
