WWW Wednesday (May 31st, 2017)

I can’t believe that it’s the end of May already. Where did the month go? Anyway, let’s get into what I’ve been reading this week.

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s pretty simple, all you have to do is answer 3 (W) questions. Let’s get into it. 


What are you currently reading?thirteen reasons why

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher — Bella (@ Bella Blogs Because Books ), who I am buddy reading this with, and I have not gotten very far with this book. We’ve both been busy with stuff. Hopefully, we can make more of a dent this week. I’ve read only a chapter more from last week.

The Little Paris Bookshop
 
by Nina George — So Book Club is Friday and I’m only like 45 pages into this one. You can bet that I will be reading it like crazy over these next few days. I’m honestly liking it a lot more than I thought I would. Our main character, Monsieur Perdu, is interesting to say the least. He’s likable and mysterious in a cool way and I am interested to learn more about his past. It’s hard to say in which direction the plot is going to go, but I’m definitely interested to see where this book goes.

 

What did you recently finish reading?a court of mist and fury

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas — I’ve finally finished this bad boy and I must say that I can definitely see where all the love for Rhysand comes from. I’ve also definitely hopped on the Rhysand train myself. This is a weird thing to say, but this almost felt like a season of a TV show in book form. So much happened and the character arcs were very well developed. It was great and I have lots of thoughts that I will go into more detail on in my May Wrap-Up and review. I will say that I’m grateful that I read this after the release of ACOWAR, because I need to know what happens next.

kill the boy bandKill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky — I randomly stumbled upon this book and knew I needed to read it for two reasons. One, it was about fangirls and I have a soft spot in my heart for fangirls (because I am on). Two, the plot sounded absolutely ridiculous and I liked it. As a writer of ridiculous things, I wanted to see how this author handled it. This book was absolutely insane, but I kinda loved it at the same time. It is definitely a book that isn’t for everyone. The humor gets extremely dark at times, and I’m not sure how well certain aspects of it were handled. However, it succeeds at being a hilarious parody as I laughed out loud multiple times. I will eventually be posting a review (I’m still so behind on them!)

What do you think you’ll read next?

City of Heavenly Fire

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments #6) — I failed to get my hands on a copy of this book after I lost my loan. Now that Lord of Shadows is out, Clare’s books are back to being super popular. This will happen soon! Mark my words!

by your side

By Your Side by Kasie West — Since I’m not sure when I will get my hands on City of Heavenly Fire, I’ll probably pick this up next. It is light, fluffy, and hopefully will be a quick read which is exactly what I need. BookCon is this weekend and I know I will be getting a couple of books, so I don’t want to dive into a new series or anything. Also I love Kasie West’s books and can’t believe I have not read this yet.

 


I feel accomplished for finishing two books this week. According to GoodReads I’m officially back on track for my 2017 reading goals which is nice. I wasn’t stressing over it, but it’s still cool.

What are you reading? Have you read any of these? Love to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment and let’s chat.

  2. How are you liking Thirteen Reasons Why? I’ve been on the library waitlist for it for such a long time, but after the Netflix series came out I wasn’t quite as bothered about reading it. I would like to compare though! I’m very intrigued by A Court of Mist and Fury based on all the buzz I’ve heard about the books, but it doesn’t really call to me. Can’t decide whether to read it or not!

    • I am enjoying it so far. That being said I’m only like 60 pages into the book lol. I have yet to see the Netlfix series, but the reason I picked it up is to see how it compares/contrasts.

      Have you read any of Sarah J Maas’s other books? If you have, I think you will enjoy it. I must say that I dragged my feet through the first book, A Court of Thorns and Roses. Especially because it wasn’t something that called to me either, but picked it up because of the buzz. I think ACOMAF is worth a read if you like YA fantasy and/or Sarah J. Maas. It is sort of like a new adult book though (not sure if you care about that or not).

      Also thanks for the link. I’ll check it out!

      • I haven’t read any of hers yet (and couldn’t remember if this was the first or second!) so I’m still very undecided but the buzz has my interest piqued. I’m definitely curious how Thirteen Reasons compares!

      • I think the second book is really good, but you do sort of have to find your way through the first one. Which I was sort of meh on (the ending of the first book is exciting though). I’d say give it a try and see what happens. Same! I hear the show is super binge worthy, and plan to do a post comparing them.
