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 was another really great week of reading. I finished The Dragon’s Promise, which was a fun, but erratic, conclusion to the Six Crimson Cranes duology (see review). I listened to Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. It was an enjoyable read, and I definitely didn’t expect the ending. It felt a bit bloated with info dumps at times, though, and the angst was a little overbearing and on the nose, which is weird for me to say because I love some angst. It just seemed a bit too contrived? I also read my ARC of Longshadow, which was an interesting murder mystery/regency romance with some really great fantasy elements related to death (see review). Finally, I pulled an all-nighter night before last to finish The Oleander Sword because I just could not put it down (see review). If you liked The Jasmine Throne or enjoy high fantasy with sapphic leads, you cannot miss this one!
What was my favorite of the week? My favorite was definitely The Oleander Sword. It provided a great payoff for all the setup of the first book while also putting the pieces in place for an epic final book.
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently listening to Storm Front by Jim Butcher. I’ve wanted to read The Dresden Files for a really long time, and I’m excited to finally dive in. I’m enjoying it so far, and it is a good mix of fantasy and detective elements. I’m also reading Second Spear by Kerstin Hall, but I haven’t made it far enough to really have an opinion yet.
What will you read next?
I’ve got several more ARCs to get through, including The Spear Cuts Through Water, This Is Why They Hate Us, and A Taste of Gold and Iron. I’m hoping I can get to them all, but I have a lot of appointments and other stuff happening over the next couple weeks. So, we’ll see…
I hope you’ve all had a great week! What have you been reading? Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think? Let me know in the comments!
