This meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. I discovered it through Larkin @ Wonderfilled Reads. The purpose of WWW Wednesday is to update each other on what we’re reading. Just answer the three questions below and link your post at Sam’s. No blog, no problem! Just answer the questions in the comments. 🙂

Oh, hey there!

Welcome, once again, to WWW Wednesday. I haven’t read as many books in the last few weeks as I was able to document in my last WWW Wednesday post. That’s because I’ve been participating in the Tome Topple Readathon – a readathon all about tackling those BIG books (read: books with a lot of pages that take a lot of time to read).

The Three W’s 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?

I’m still reading this one…albeit slowly. It’s chilling on my bedside table while I tackle some big books for Tome Topple. So far, I’m really enjoying it. It’s very different from the fantasy I’ve been reading a lot of lately. It’s much more subtle. More calm. And yet, also more emotional.

Speaking of big books, I’m nearing the end of this 624 page beast. This is the second time I’ve read it, and I’m still loving it. The intensity, and the emotional rollercoasters of these characters is really fun. I like the layers in Rhysand. I like this inner circle’s perspective. I like how Feyre is starting to get interesting and less whiny (spoiler: I really didn’t like her in ACOTAR).

 

What did you recently finish reading?

Novel (in print): A Court of Thorns and Roses  by Sarah J. Maas

I blasted through this one this time. I caught on to a lot of foreshadowing that I didn’t see last year when I read it for the first time. And, once again, I noticed some repeat phrases that Sarah likes to use. They got a little annoying, but overall, I think this is a really interesting Beauty and the Beast reimagining. And Tamlin just gets beastier and beastier as the series goes on.

 


the night circusAudio: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

This was another reread. I was in need of a good audiobook to keep me company on some lonely commutes and this one was available and fit the bill. It is… splendid. The language of this novel is intricately woven into possibly the most beautiful book I have ever read. As a story about magic, it is magic. Gorgeous and exciting and heart-wrenching. It’s just…wonderful. If you haven’t read it. Go read it right now.

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

the luminaries by eleanor cattonNovel (in print): The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton

The Luminaries  is another tome on my Tome Topple TBR. It grabbed my attention years ago. The cover is lovely. The title is magical-sounding. And, the synopsis is intriguing. I  love books with strange casts of characters, and historical bents. Here’s hoping I can get to and topple this 800+ page tome this month.

  1. Hey! I’m actually reading something. I finished Uncharted by Graeme Connell on the weekend. It is by a local Calgary Author who I know from my writing group. I loved his book. A man has been working on cataloging wildflowers in Fish Creek with his wife. She is killed in a traffic accident. His grief is profound, and well written. Through working to make her dream of publishing the catalog a reality, Brewster learns to live in the grief, instead of letting it kill him. Look for Graeme’s presentation at the When Words Collide Conference this summer!
    I’m also reading Captives, by Jill Williamson. I’m reading this one for market research. It has a similar premise to my story, two worlds that have been separated, but are now finding they can’t live without each other. The story is good, but there are too many characters, and the emotional depth isn’t there. It is part of a series so maybe the subsequent books are more engaging.
    I just listened to some videos from Adam Dreece, who was at the WWC last summer. My student is a big fan and put me on his trail. Maybe I’ll read his Yellow Hoods….
