WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: April 24, 2019

It is 9:30 p.m. here and I have gone through nearly the whole day believing it was Tuesday. This is what happens when you take a Monday off! Since it is Wednesday (for a few more hours) it is also time for WWW Wednesday. Make sure and head over to Sam’s site, Taking on a World of Words, where you can see what is on everyone else’s list for this week. Please feel free to leave any links below. My TBR won’t continue to be brimming without your help!


What Did I Recently Finish Reading?

It may not look like much but this week I experienced an enormous feeling of accomplishment when I finished not one but two books off of my huge physical TBR.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan is the second in this delightful Norse Mythology series. I am already 35% into the third book and I am loving it. Expect a review of the trilogy shortly!

I also read the first graphic novel / comic book I have enjoyed in quite some time. The Star Wars by JW Rinzler is based on the original screenplay itself. The art is fantastic and, for the epic storyline it is attempting to cover, it is a really well done book.

I also finished Last of the Summer Moet by Wendy Holden. Holden is a long-time favorite author of mine and I love her style. I had a little trouble getting into this story. This made sense when I went to log it on Goodreads and discovered I was reading #2 in the series. Ah-Hah! It was still great fun and I am already several chapters into the third book. I will probably circle back and read books 1 and 1.5 at some point because I love Holden just that much.

I also finished Eon by Alison Goodman. Eon has been on my physical TBR for so long and I am proud to have finally read it. It wasn’t a hard read or a complicated story but for some reason it just kept getting passed over for other books. I enjoyed the story of Eona who is disguised as a boy in order to wield Dragon magic but I am not sure I will continue with the series only because I have so many (honestly, so many) series on my shelf that I need to finish first.


What am I Currently Reading?

Jeesh. I know. This looks bad. But, I am re-reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Illustrated over breakfast. I listen to Magnus Chase, The Ship of the Dead as an audiobook and A View to a Kilt is on my Kindle for those night insomnia comes a-callin’. All three of them are sequels to books I just finished!

Meanwhile, the poor dear Wonderling is a buddy read I am doing and neither my buddy nor I are prioritizing this truly sweet story. I hope to finish it this week!

I am zipping through Hamlet which is good because it is for my OWL read-a-thon and, with only a week left, it is one of the few categories I am not sure I would be able to easily fill.

Finally, Blue Lily, Lily Blue is going strong. As the third book in The Raven Cycle I only regret waiting so long to finally crack into it. In fact, all I plan to do this evening is read more of this book!


What Will I Read Next?

RoseBlood

The only subject I know I haven’t covered for my OWLs is Defense Against the Dark Arts which requires me to read a book that starts with the letter “R.” I have had this particular book on my physical TBR for quite some time so I hope to finish it before the end of April.


Tell me, please!

What is on your WWW?

  1. I’ve been wanting to check out The Star Wars too, but I’m going to wait to get it in the Infinities book, which is an “Epic Collection” volume that also contains “What If?” interpretations of each of the original trilogy films.

  2. I feel you on needing to finish series! The fact that I actually started a trilogy at the end of March and actually proceeded to read the other two books in April is a total surprise to me. XD

    I downloaded the Eon sample after seeing it in your post last week, but I haven’t had a chance to look at it yet.

    I’ll be keen to see what you think of Roseblood. I love Phantom of the Opera but I really disliked Howard’s Splintered series, so I have a feeling I’d end up rage-reading it, which isn’t really fair.

    1. I don’t want to read Roseblood very much (at all) but I need to take my OWLs! If I can find another book that starts with “R” I might swap it out for the same reasons you sited.

      I want to hear your thoughts on Eon if you get a chance. I really enjoyed it – a little warning, it starts a bit slow!
