Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Top Ten Tuesday

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm and revived by Taking on a World of Words.

All you have to do is answer the following questions.

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

I’ve decided to take on this new tag! I think it’ll be pretty fun and easy, and be a really good of talking real-time about what I’m reading. So, let’s do this first one.

Currently reading!

Right now, I’m currently reading five books. I’m rereading American Gods for the umpteenth time, so that’s nothing to broadcast.

But these are the books I’m reading besides that:

The Reckless Oath We Made

This is an ARC that I snagged. I loved Greenwood’s debut and this one is just as good. It’s very different than her first book, but I love how she talks about Kansas related topics since she’s a native like I am.

An Enchantment of Ravens

Because I loved Sorcery of Thorns so much, I decided to jump on this one! It’s okay. I’m liking it but it’s just not as rich as I’d have liked it to be. Still good for a debut, but it’s not my favorite.

The Storm Crow (The Storm Crow, #1)

Another one I picked up after seeing some good reviews. And another one I’m finding quite average. It’s not bad, but I’m about 50% in and it hasn’t really captured me.

Darkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicle, #3)

And this one. I know, I know. Caidyn, how the fuck did you get it? I don’t know, but I did. And it’s kinda meh. That’s basically how I’ve felt about the whole series, though.

Just finished…

So, I’ve just finished quite a few books. But I’m picking three, two that I really enjoyed and one that I DNFed.

The Smoke Thieves (The Smoke Thieves, #1)

This is one I really enjoyed! I thought it was fun and very, very much like a YA Game of Thrones. I had my issues with it, but it was still good. My review will be posted on the 28th!

Nocturna (A Forgery of Magic, #1)

This is the one I DNFed. I called it quits at page 154. Taken from my review I did on Goodreads:

I could tell that this was going to be like my experience with A Darker Shade of Magic. Good premise, especially interesting since it’s a Spanish inspired world. Bland characters that did nothing but annoy me. A plot that felt all over the place. Weird pacing where action was happening but I was bored. Forced romance on the horizon. Things happening that I was supposed to care about but couldn’t be bothered with. Evil magic that was being released.

I put it down as soon as I realized it was going to be another Schwab book (without it being by Schwab). I read that whole damn series by her. I don’t need to read another.

With the Fire on High

I seriously didn’t expect to like this one as much as I did! It was so good! Again, I had things I didn’t love about it, but it blew me away. The review will be posted on here August 4th!

What’s next?

There are a few books that I have in mind that I want to dive into next!

Wicked Fox (Gumiho, #1)

I’m going to be buddy reading this with Sam @ Tinted Prose Reviews soon! We both got it for our affiliate boxes for Book of the Month’s new YA book box. If you want to subscribe to it — and if you already have the original BotM you have to make another account — you can use my affiliate link! I’ll get a bit of money back, which will help me get books to create more content for y’all!

Shadows of Self (Mistborn, #5)

I have this out from the library right now and I really want to read it. I read the fourth Mistborn book a couple weeks ago. Not as good as the original series and I desperately miss it, but I’m going to carry on for the time being.

The Girl the Sea Gave Back

I have an ARC of this one and I’m super excited to have it! I can’t wait to see what goes on next in this world, really.

Talk to me!
