WWW Wednesday: 27/02

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.

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.

WWW Wednesday: 13th February

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.

WWW Wednesday: 31st October

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 currently making my way through a few different things having picked up another book that I don’t really have the time for but oh well. I usually pick up a load of books when I’m in a reading slump but that’s not really the case this time round. I mean, I am in a little reading slump but I’m picking up books left, right and centre because I really do want to read my books at the moment but I can’t because I have one more exam to do in November and so I’m putting all my efforts into that.

That being said, here are the books I am (slowly) reading:

  1. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee – Featured for the last few WWW Wednesday’s, I will get this off my list eventually. I’m actually really enjoying it and love Monty’s voice but basically, exams.
  2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor – I went to the Laini Taylor signing on Friday in Birmingham so knew that I had to get a wriggle on and at least start Strange before I went to the signing.
  3. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – I was supposed to be reading a chapter a day to get through this, but I read one chapter and haven’t read any since. Again, I have had exams and that has stopped me reading basically everything.

What did you recently finish reading?

Um, so I haven’t actually finished reading anything this week. Oops…

What do you think you’ll read next?

Right now, I’m just focussing on finishing the books I’m actually reading at the moment, except for Priory because I have already planned to read that over a longer period of time. I definitely will not be picking up any more books over the next week unless I’ve finished both Gentleman’s Guide and Strange the Dreamer.
