Good morning bookworms and welcome to another WWW Wednesday post!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.
For those who don’t know, the three W’s are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you finish reading recently?
What do you think you’ll read next?
It’s been a few weeks since I did my last WWW post but overall it’s been a pretty good reading week for me. I basically binged the entire Poppy War series and didn’t do a heck of a lot else. It was so nice to have the long Easter weekend as that allowed me to power through these books. It did leave me with a massive book hangover though and I am still thinking about it even though I am reading other books.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern; I just started reading this yesterday and it’s a book that has been on my tbr for a really long time. So far I am 200 pages in and I have been really enjoying visiting the circus and experiencing the magic. In terms of plot I am not totally sold and honestly I’m not even sure what’s going on but this book is enchanting and I am having fun reading it.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling; Yes I am still working my way through my reread (listen) of the Harry Potter series. I started this one about a week ago now but I have been so tired that I am only managing to listen to about 10-15 minutes before falling asleep so I am making very slow progress with this one so far and am only about 12% of the way through it. Oops!
The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett; I have just started my buddy read of this with Lynn. We are reading 1/3 per week (so approx. 100 pages) and discussing it over the weekend. We will post our final thoughts/review in the final week of April.
The Poppy War by R.F Kuang (series); I have said this on other posts and on my socials as I was reading this and ill say it again now for good measure. This series shattered me. It was everything. It was both the best and the worst thing I have ever read. Honestly, it was just perfect.
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig; I don’t know what made me pick this up after finishing The Poppy War, I really don’t. I suppose I just needed something completely different in order to deal with the massive book hangover that I was dealing with. I think it was a good choice though and I did really enjoy it. It was a tough read at times and touches a lot on mental health issues and regret. It is magical and quite unputdownable. It’s a short book and I read it in a few hours.
Mirrorland by Carole Johnstone; I am really excited to be participating in the blog tour for this book. I’ve been looking forward to reading it for weeks and now the date is coming up it’s time to take it off the pile and see what it’s all about. I’ve seen a lot of people talking about this lately and opinions are split. You can read my thoughts on my tour date (17th April)
The Prison Healer by Lynette Noni; I received this eARC from Netgalley quite a few weeks ago and noticed it is actually releasing this month! I am hoping to read this before release and share some love for this exciting new YA Fantasy!
