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?
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas – 4.5 ⭐ – I finished up my buddy read of this one with Celeste, and I loved it. This book was so good. I totally get the hype now. I am now 100% in love with Rhysand and think Tamlin deserves to rot in hell. lol. I loved all of the suggestive banter between Rhys and Feyre, and the found family of the Night Court was the absolute best.
The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso – 3.75⭐ – This was a fascinating fantasy filled with conspiracies, political intrigue, and a cool magic system. I liked the two main characters a lot and enjoyed seeing their dynamic shift as their relationship grew. I could have done without the romance subplot, though, and the story did tend to drag a bit in certain places. Nonetheless, it was a great introduction to this fantasy world, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the series goes next.
The Foxglove King by Hannah Whitten – 4⭐ – I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I liked the court drama, the death magic, and the way the author described it all. It really sucked me into this world. See all my thoughts in my review.
DNF – I did finally DNF Prince of the Sorrows by Kellen Graves. I just couldn’t take any more of the writing even though the story was fun. It just wasn’t really my thing.
What was my favorite of the week? My favorite this week was A Court of Mist and Fury. I’m honestly a bit surprised by this, but I really did love this book. It also completely changed the way I think about the first book and is one of the rare times that a sequel elevated my opinion of the series opener. I’m looking forward to jumping into book three next month. 🙂
What are you currently reading?
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon (9%) – I don’t know why I’ve been so intimidated by this book. I’m really enjoying it so far. I like the split perspective between the two different empires, and I’m curious to see how they will intersect. The world-building is insanely good, and I’m having such a great time getting to know the world.
Him by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy (48%) – This book is HOT AF. That’s all I have to say. lol.
Chain of Thorns by Cassandra Clare (20%) – akjdfjklajkdjfkdjakjfkajsdkfjlkdjakjdfkjdkfjajdkjfnvlknginvkdnveiwnegvkdnv!!!!!! I have so much to say, and it’s mostly expletives. It roughly translates to… Neither of those fuckers deserves Cordelia, and the first 20% of the book basically resolves most of the drama from the end of the last book and brings everyone back to London. So, all the contrivance felt a bit pointless. Also, this plan to reintroduce Jesse as a different Blackthorn is dumb AF. His body just went missing and now a new Blackthorn magically pops up? Are the rest of the Shadowhunters really dumb enough to fall for that? I guess we’ll see. All that being said, I’m eating it up, as usual. lol.
What will you read next?
I’m not really sure. It will probably be one of these, though.
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!
