Happy Wednesday, everyone!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over on Taking on a World of Words! Its purpose is to share what you’re currently reading, what you’ve just finished reading, and what you’re going to read next.
I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday post in quite some time, so I’m super thrilled to update you all on what I’ve been reading recently!
A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas (33% through)
I’ve been waiting for this book for YEARS, and I can’t believe it’s finally here! I’m nearly a third of the way through, and while the first chunk of it was rather slow and underwhelming, it’s been smooth sailing since I hit the 150 page mark! Nesta is a very flawed character, and I’m incredibly excited to see her go through some fantastic character development in this novel! Sarah J. Maas never fails to amaze me with her astonishing writing, and I know that A Court of Silver Flames will not make an exception! I can tell I’m in for a real treat! Let’s just hope I manage to make it through the next 500 pages without stumbling across any spoilers.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (30% through)
Like ACOSF, Outlander is a very long book. While I was intimidated by its size going into it, I’m happy to report that I’m enjoying it quite a lot so far! The atmosphere is rich with historical detail and imagery, and Diana Gabaldon’s writing is some of the best I’ve ever read! I’m really looking forward to continuing on with this series, and knowing that it’s over nine books long, I can tell that I’m in for many wild adventures!
Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout (25% through)
Opal is the third book in the Lux series, and reading it has been a lot of fun! It’s such a fluffy, lighthearted book, and while it can be extremely juvenile at times, that’s what makes it so entertaining! Paranormal fantasy/romance has never been my go-to genre (that’s probably why I never had a Twilight phase), but the Lux series has definitely been a welcome change in my normal reading material! Jennifer L. Armentrout is a truly skilled author!
The Duke and I by Julia Quinn (Rating: 3/5)
The Duke and I was a light, entertaining read! It certainly didn’t knock my socks off, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I mainly read it in anticipation of its TV show adaptation, Bridgerton, which has been getting nothing but praise these past few months! I wonder if I’ll like it more (or less) than the book!
The Traitor Queen by Danielle L. Jensen (Rating: 5/5)
The Traitor Queen was nothing short of a MASTERPIECE! I loved its predecessor, The Bridge Kingdom, but somehow The Traitor Queen managed to be even better! The world, characters, and relationships in it are simply breathtaking, and its plot is driven by endless twists, turns, and surprises! Danielle L. Jensen has definitely made it to my list of favorite authors, and I highly recommend everything she’s written! In short, the Bridge Kingdom series is a must-read for all fantasy lovers!
A Trial of Sorcerers by Elise Kova
I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book as an ARC, and I can’t wait to dive into it! It’ll be my first Elise Kova novel, which is very exciting. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Kova’s writing, so I have a really good feeling about A Trial of Sorcerers! My plan is to start reading it right after I finish ACOSF, which will hopefully be soon!
Lore by Alexandra Bracken
I am a MASSIVE Greek Mythology fan, so you can imagine how excited I am to read Lore, Alexandra Bracken’s standalone Medusa-inspired novel! I haven’t gotten the chance to read any reviews for this one, so I honestly have no idea what to expect. But that, in a sense, is a blessing, since I’ll be going into the story with a completely open mind!
