Welcome to WWW Wednesday, a weekly bookish meme host by Sam @ Taking On The World Of Words, where I will speak about my reading plans for this week!
I haven’t done one of these in a long time but the new year is the best time to start fresh 🙂
The Three W’s are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
I’ve set myself a goal for the new year to try and read as many Brandon Sanderson books as I can manage, and I’m starting strong with The Way of Kings. I’m only a handful of pages with a long way to go but I already enjoy how Sanderson writes. I can see why people enjoy his books and fantasy worlds so much. I’m super excited to see exactly where this book goes as I know very little.
What did you recently finish reading?
The Twisted Tree by Rachel Burges
So The Twisted Tree was a super short novella I received as an ARC from Netgalley. It’s a mixture of Nordic mythology mixed with a supernatural thriller so expect suspense and drama and violence and a lot of Odin. There will be a review by the end of the week (fingers crossed I keep to my own schedule…) but as a preview – I did enjoy it but it was a bit of a mixed bag.
Nothing But The Truth by Dick Lehr
I received this as an ARC from Walker Books and it was definitely an enjoyable read. Super easy, I sped right through it. Dick Lehr’s writing style was somewhat basic, however, take that as you will. My review of Nothing But The Truth is already up!
What do you think you’ll read next?
Outside by Sarah Ann Juckes
A friend at work gave this book to read after she’d finished. I had never heard of it until she handed it over, but reading the synopsis I’m honestly really intrigued. I want to know so many things!!! This is quite a short book too (less than 300 pages) so it will be a fast read as well.
The Girl King by Mimi Yu
I received this book as an ARC through Netgalley and, despite the mixed reviews I’ve read, I am super interested in giving it a try. Hopefully, it’s a book I’ll enjoy because I do like Asian inspired stories and I want to read more diverse reads this year.
What book are you reading now? What do you plan on reading next?
