WWW Wednesday: 13th March 2019

The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.

WWW Wednesday

To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading

The MineArmada

I started The Mine by Antti Tuomainen yesterday and am already around 20% in and very much enjoying it. It is still early days and I’m not entirely sure where the story is going to go but I do like Tuomainen’s writing (or maybe it’s his translators).

On audio I’m still listening to Armada by Ernest Cline but have to confess I haven’t made as much progress with it as I thought I would. I am in the process of trying to train my feline overlord to use a catflap so I have to keep an ear out for his pathetic attempts to re enter our abode. I also haven’t really been driving so no listening in the car either.

Recently Finished

A bit more of a normal week for me with three books finished.

Hate NotesThe Hate U GiveLady Smoke (The Ash Princess Trilogy, #2)

  • Hate Notes – 3 stars – Honestly I only finished this a few days ago and I’m struggling to remember anything that happened in it. It was a quick read so obviously not bad but I don’t think there was anything particularly stand out about it. I do remember not really liking the MC (little bit too ditsy and upbeat for cynical me).
  • The Hate U Give – 4 stars –  Yep I finally read it. I was a little wary of all of the hype but it is a really great read. I’m probably not the target audience for it but while there were some references I didn’t get (and probably a few I missed altogether) it is incredibly relateable. Thomas can really write, it’s a powerful and emotional read and while it deals with serious issues it keeps the focus on the characters.
  • Lady Smoke – 4 stars – This is the second book in the Ash Princess trilogy and was so much better than I was expecting. I had some issues with the first book (too much violence and abuse) but this feels a little more even. It is still on the predictable side and pacing is a little off but I’m becoming a fan of this series.

Reading Next

I posted a Spring TBR at the weekend so I feel like I should try to stick with it for at least a little while 🙂 I have signed up for a group read/discussion of Empress of All Seasons which is starting on Saturday so I think it’ll probably be up next. I also want to finish off Close to the Edge by Toby Faber, which I’d previously started then put on hold and hopefully get to Two Can Keep a Secret.

Two Can Keep a SecretEmpress of All Seasons

Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.

Happy Reading ❤

  1. I’m waiting for my audio hold for Two Can Keep a Secret. I hope it’s good!! I loved her last book. I’m glad to see you enjoyed THUG. It’s definitely a unique read, but well worth reading.

  2. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed THUG! Two Can Keep A Secret is a great read as well, although I did prefer One Of Us Is Lying over that one. I hope you will enjoy it! Happy reading.
