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?

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.

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!

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.

Between The Blade And The Heart by Amanda Hocking36404186

I’m just over halfway through this book right now and I am enjoying this book so much. I’ve had the ARC for this book sitting on my desk for months now and I’m honestly kicking myself that I didn’t pick it up sooner. I’ll speak more about this book in a review once I have finished it entirely (perhaps, I’ll do a series review as I received the sequel as an ARC last week) but if you haven’t picked up this series yet, you will enjoy yourself!

Legendary by Stephenie Garber

As I mentioned last week, this is a sequel I have been super excited for, from a series that holds a special place in my heart as Caraval was the first book review I ever made on this blog. Legendary did not disappoint at all! A more detailed review is coming – hopefully up by the end of the week/beginning of next – but just know, if you enjoyed reading Caraval, you will enjoy this book.

I still have books from last week, such as The Poppy War and White Rabbit, Red Wolf but here are two others that have been added to my TBR that I hope I get through soon!

1. From The Earth To The Shadows by Amanda Hocking

This is the sequel to Between The Heart And The Blade, a book I’ve already said that I adore. I received this on June 9th – my birthday in fact! – and since I have started the first book and I have been loving it, I have no doubt that I will want to start this book as soon as possible!

2. Ruthless Magic by Meghan Crewe

This is a book I have received through NetGalley. I adore magic and urban fantasy – this book seems to hit all those checkpoints that would make me pick up this book. I’m interested in giving this new book – and new author – a shot!

Legendary by Stephanie Garber

The first book in this series Caraval was not only Stephanie Garber’s debut novel, but also the first book I ever reviewed on this site. So when I found out there was a sequel coming out, I have been anticipating finally getting my hands on it. It took a while but that time has arrived. I started my ARC copy this morning and I am 34% of the way through it. So far, I am loving it!

1. The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

This was a book I received as an ARC and loved every moment of reading. I don’t want to say too much as a review will be up soon once I have managed to gather together enough words to accurately describe how much I enjoyed this book.

2. Honeybee by Trista Mateer

This is a recent finish and a review has been posted that collects all my thoughts about this poetry collection. I will say that I read the whole thing in less than two hours and I found the whole thing a beautiful piece of work.

1. Between The Blade And The Heart by Amanda Hocking

Pan Macmillian sent me this book and its sequel, From The Earth To The Shadows, for review and, considering all the positive praise and stellar comparisons in the press release I received, I am excited to give this duology a try and soon!

2. The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang

This is a book I know very little about, except that Aentee @ readatmidnight has been raving about it on her blog. She has some fantastic content up already and I just really want to see what all the hype is about.

3. White Rabbit, Red Wolf by Tom Pollock

I received this from Walker Books as an ARC a few months back, and I fell behind. It is officially coming out in June and I want to get this read and reviewed as soon as. It’s a thrill full of mystery and murder and I am excited to delve into this new world with a new writer.
