WWW Wednesday #14

WWW Wednesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. In this post I will answer the following questions:

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

I’m really happy with myself because I’ve been consistent with these posts. It helps me keep a good eye on my TBR. 🙂

  • What are you currently reading?

 

I’ve at DotC as an eARC on my e-reader for a while, and I finally got around to it sometime last week. I’m about 11 or 12 chapters into it, and while I like it, I’m struggling to follow some of the scenarios. I will say that I wasn’t sure about Hesina at first, but I’m starting to like her.

Nyxia seems like one of those under-hyped sci-fi series. I saw the author a few weeks ago and got the entire series signed, but have only now decided to pick it up on audiobook. I enjoy the narrator and I like the dynamics. I’m excited to see where the rest of the book goes, and I hope I like it enough to continue the series.

  • What did you recently finish reading?

 

I was super excited to read We Hunt the Flame, and while I enjoyed it, I over-hyped it in my mind. I’m not saying it wasn’t good though. The book released yesterday, and I’m excited to meet the author on Friday to get my book signed. 🙂

My review for War Storm will go up tomorrow, and let me just say… this series is not for me. I don’t like using that phrase because I’m not a teen anymore, so I feel like reading YA as an adult means the books aren’t for me anyway, but I think this series started out well but really fell flat.

Aurora Rising has become one of my favorite reads of the year. I mean, I knew it was going to be good, but I just loved it so much. So many emotions! And there’s a biracial (half-white, half-East Asian) main character? Yep. Sign me up!! (You can check out my review here.)

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve got a few more ARCs to read before I feel like I’m caught up with things. With May being Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage month, I want to stick with books with Asian characters written by Asian authors.

 

I’ve got an ARC of Somewhere Only We Know sitting on my nightstand at the moment, and Spin the Dawn as an eARC on my e-reader. I have a feeling I’m going to love both, so I hope my feelings are right. 😛

As a bonus, here are books I checked out from the library but couldn’t dedicate enough time to even start them so… 😦 Maybe another time.

 

With Renegades, I wanted an audiobook to be a filler while I was waiting for all Escaping from Houdini. Yet somehow everything fell apart when I checked it all out at once after I already had Nyxia checked out. So yeah… Unfortunately, those two audiobooks were returned and I haven’t put myself back on the wait list for them. I should stop assuming I have all this time to read and listen to audiobooks while I’m drowning in my other, actual TBR.

Priory is such a large book, I decided to check it out as as an e-book. However, I had to put it on hold and have been waiting a decent amount of weeks to get it since the local library only has one copy. Well, I received it earlier than I thought I would but had to return it because I just don’t have the time. 😦

Let me know what you’re currently reading, and if we are any similarities! 🙂 I love hearing from you all and try my best to reply to all of your comments.

    I really didn’t enjoy King’s Cage, so have been putting off War Storm for a while (like, since it came out). I know what you mean about reading YA as an adult, but I’m mid-thirties, and if it’s well written I think anyone can enjoy it.
