Hello, everyone! It’s Wednesday! That means it is time for another WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. I’ll be answering the following questions:
- What did you read last?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you read next?
What did you read last?
This week’s reading has been mostly meh. I started with finishing off Rise of the Renegade Child, which was the bright spot of the week. Then I moved on to The Blood Traitor by Lynette Noni, and it was super disappointing. This trilogy has been really hit or miss for me, and this final book was definitely a miss. The plot just felt all over the place with a pointless quest that dragged on and on, and the main character was insufferable for most of it. Then I started Shadow of the Sith by Adam Christopher. This was not the Star Wars book I was looking for, and it was a bit of a disappointment too. There were some things I really liked and others that just came across as completely nonsensical. Look out for my review (hopefully tomorrow) for all my thoughts. Finally, I binged the audiobook of The Name of All Things hoping to find something to enjoy. Nope. That didn’t happen. I really liked the first book in the series, but this one didn’t really work for me. The overall story didn’t progress much until the very end and it mostly threw aside all the established characters that I liked, which was really frustrating. I also found the weird asides about horses and gender to be off-putting and incredibly repetitive. So, overall this hasn’t been the best week, and I just hope it doesn’t send me into a reading slump.
What was my favorite of the week? The only book that made it to four stars this week was Rise of the Renegade Child by Robert Roth. It was a fun sci-fi sequel with great world-building, tons of conspiracy, and lots of action.
What are you currently reading?
I’m finally starting Daughter of Redwinter today. I’ve seen lots of great things about it from other reviewers, and I’m hoping it will break my streak of disappointments. No pressure Ed McDonald. lol.
What will you read next?
I’m not entirely sure what I’ll read next. I have a couple ARCs that I need to get to, and I just downloaded the audiobook of Juniper & Thorn. So, one of them will probably be up next.
I hope you’ve all had better luck with your reading this week than me! What have you been reading? Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think? Let me know in the comments!
