WWW Wednesday: 13/03

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves answering three WWW questions about reading.

I decided not to post a WWW Wednesday last week based on having posts going up on Thursday and Friday, but it turns out you didn’t miss much as I didn’t have anything to bring to the table. However this week is a little different because I read 2 books. Yep, you read that right. I read and finished two books this week!

It may seem like a low number to some, but I am pretty proud of that. I just wish I could read 2 books a week every week!

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading City of Glass by Cassandra Clare but I’m hoping to finally finish it over the next week. I first picked it up a month ago exactly today to read on the plane to and from Poland ready for the Cassie Clare signing a week later, but I haven’t read any of since then. I just want to finish it now!

What did you recently finish reading?

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas and it was fantastic. I started reading it on the train to her signing in Birmingham last Tuesday and finished it just under a week later. I also read The Near Witch on Saturday on my train to and from London for V. E. Schwab’s Forbidden Planet signing. I managed to read the book in 4 hours which I was pretty happy with as I haven’t read a book in a day in a little while. (Picture from my train down to London featuring The Near Witch – isn’t under the dust jacket pretty?)

What do you think you’ll read next?

I am planning to read The Devouring GrayTruly, Devious and A Study in Charlotte in March so my next read will be one of those, I’m just not sure which one yet.

What are you guys currently reading?

Finally, I can bring you guys a WWW Wednesday that isn’t the same as the last few weeks because I finally finished one of my most anticipated reads of the year. I can’t wait to read some smaller books and hopefully have a successful reading week.

What are you currently reading?

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. I started this two weeks ago on the plane to and from Poland but after we landed home, I focused solely on reading The Priory of the Orange Tree. I will be looking to finish this one this week as I am just under half way through it.

What did you recently finish reading?

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetI finished reading The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon yesterday. After reading it for just under a month, I finally tackled the beast and I won! I think it’s probably the longest book I’ve ever read so I’m glad that I’ve finally read a book that long.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I want to read some shorter books now as Priory was so large that it took pretty much all my reading focus in February. I’m leaning towards either Clockwork Angel or Truly Devious.

What are you guys currently reading?

WWW Wednesday: 20/2

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves me answering three WWW questions about my reads.

This past week has been slightly disastrous in terms of reading however, I do have a reason for why I haven’t finished anything and that’s because I was in Krakow, Poland for a long weekend away with my boyfriend! The only opportunities I had to read was on the plane there and back as we were out and about every day.

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading Priory. I can’t wait to finally get this one off my TBR/currently reading as I’ve been reading it for almost a month now. Work and life has got in the way of me reading this one but hopefully I’ll be able to read the majority of it or even finish it by its release date next week. I’m also reading City it Glass which I started on the plane last Wednesday so I’m just under half way through that too.

What did you recently finish reading?

….nothing. I’m so sad I don’t have an answer for this question this week!

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m not sure to be honest. I’m focusing on finishing both my current reads at the moment but I’d like to read another Cassie Clare book, Truly Devious and/or Muse of Nightmares.

What’re you reading this week?

WWW Wednesday: 13th February

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves me answering three WWW questions about my reads.

I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday for a few weeks as after my great month of reading in January, I’ve definitely slipped in February. I blame Priory of the Orange Tree to be honest..

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. I finally reached part 2 of it but I’m still in the first half of the book. I really need to get a move on with this one before it’s release at the end of February! Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

What did you recently finish reading?

I have actually managed to finish one book in February so far, despite the fact I’ve been trying to get through the beast that is Priory. I read Heartstopper by Alice Oseman and absolutely flew through it.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m going away today for a long weekend to Poland so I’m taking City of Glass by Cassandra Clare as it’s much shorter than Priory so it’s easier to take on the plane but also because I’m meeting Cassie on the 22nd February at a signing. I do want to finish Priory but it’s so big, I know it’ll take me until the end of the month to finish it!

WWW Wednesday: 30th January

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves answering three WWW questions about reading.

My first WWW Wednesday of 2019 is here! I’ve been having a fairly decent month of reading so far but I’m a little worried that my streak is going to run out soon. I had a fairly bad second half of the year in regards to my reading so I’m really hoping I can avoid slumps this year. I’ve definitely had enough of them!

What are you currently reading?

I’ve finally made a start on The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. I was super lucky to be sent a copy of this book, thanks to Bloomsbury. I still can’t quite believe I was sent it, if I’m honest. It’s quite a large book, but thanks to there being several sections, I’ve tabbed them all to make Priory look more manageable! It definitely doesn’t look as intimidating once all the sections are separated!

What did you recently finish reading?

Since I last did a WWW Wednesday, I’ve finished quite a few books. I’ll only mention my most recent finished book though and that is Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus. It’s a sequel-not-sequel following her popular debut, One of Us is Lying.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I think this is the first WWW Wednesday in ages I haven’t said Priory because I’m finally picking it up. Priory is a rather large book so I doubt I’ll have much to update you on next week, but I also don’t know what I want to read alongside it/after. I am thinking of reading Circle of Shadows whilst I read Priory though!

WWW Wednesday: 14th November

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves answering three WWW questions about reading.

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading the same three books I have been for the last week. However, after Friday that is due to change seeing as I will (hopefully) have no more exams for the rest of the year. I really want to finish two of the three books I’m currently reading which are:

  1. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
  2. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I am definitely looking to finish Gentleman’s Guide over the weekend and hopefully I’ll make a good dent in Strange the Dreamer!

What did you recently finish reading?

Just like last week, I haven’t finished anything this week but I am really hoping to have two books in this section next week to make up for this week!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Well I definitely want to make a proper start on The Priory of the Orange Tree. It’s my aim to have that book finished by the end of the year so we shall see. I feel like it’s a book you can’t really take out the house because it’s honestly the size of a brick!

As well as reading that, I’d really like to start a book I took out the library which is The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. I’ve seen a hell of a lot about this book over the internet and it sounds like the perfect book to satisfy my murder mystery craving. I’m especially interested to see how I react to an adult murder mystery. As you all can see, I really love YA and rarely read adult fiction so this will be a change for me.

Let’s hope next week I have a proper update for you all on what I’m reading! Have a great reading week!

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading the books I mentioned last week but I haven’t actually really even touched them this week. You know, exams and stuff…

Just in case you can’t remember what I was reading last week:

  1. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
  2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
  3. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

What did you recently finish reading?

I still haven’t finished anything this week, my bad.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I will definitely be plodding through my current reads still over the next week but hoping to have a more productive week after my exam which is in about a weeks time.
