WWW Wednesdays #26 – February 11th

wwwwednesdaysOriginally featured at Should Be Reading and now hosted by Sam at Taking On A World Of Words, WWW WEDNESDAYS is still about answering the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?

harrypotterandtheorderofphoenixbeautifulruinsI’ve decided to continue my HP series reread and I’m currently reading the fifth book: Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix. This is probably my least favorite of the bunch, mostly caused by Umbridge, but I’m enjoying travelling back to the magical world of Harry Potter anyway. I’ve also started to rad Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter, a historical fiction/romance novel that will be perfect to get in the mood for Valentine’s day. Or so I hope; I’m keeping my fingers crossed it’s not too cheesy…

  • What did you recently finish reading?

beautifulcreaturesthecatcherintheryeI’ve finished Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia the other day, and I must say I absolutely loved it! A magical Caster family with a curse, a teenage girl trying to escape her fate… The dose of romance was just right, and this is one of my favorite YA fantasy reads so far. Review coming soon! I also finished The Catcher In The Rye, a classic I unfortunately wasn’t able to enjoy the way I thought I would… This novel by J.D. Salinger just didn’t convince me.

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Again, I’m still not sure what to read next… I will probably read something romance related for Valentine’s day depending on how long I take to finish my current reads, but other than that I don’t have a clue what to pick.

  1. I’ve never read the Harry Potter series (well I did last month read the first book). Hopefully by the end of this year I’ll have them all read. I’ve been kind of wanting to read Beautiful Creatures. I always see it in recommended books and always go back and forth with wanting to and not.

    • It’s never too late to start reading them! 😉 I personally loved Beautiful Creatures, mostly because the references to the Civil War and the magical elements… If you like reading YA fantasy, you will probably enjoy Beautiful Creatures as well.

  3. “The Order of the Phoenix” is also my last favorite book of the series. I think it is pretty dark and gloomy. Nevertheless, I also think it is very important for the whole story because it marks a turning point. Harry looses his innocence and understands for the very first time that he will probably die in the fight with Voldemort. This awareness is essential for the following developments. 🙂

    Best wishes,

  4. I think Order of the Phoenix is most people’s least favorite of the HP books! But I love them all, so it’s all relative. I really loved Beautiful Ruins, although I don’t think of it as particularly romantic. I hope you enjoy it!

    • I agree, while it is probably my least favorite one of the bunch, the Harry Potter books are still my favorite childhood series. Good to know Beautiful Ruins is not that romantic! I’ve only just started it and I haven’t got a good impression of the book yet, but the low romance factor is definitely good news.

  5. I’m glad you’re still rereading Harry Potter. The fifth book wasn’t my least favorite, that was seven, but five and six weren’t as good as four and earlier.

    I saw the Beautiful Creatures movie and it was pretty horrible, but I’m told it’s nothing like the books. I’m glad you liked it.

    I debated reading something romantic for Valentines. (for about five seconds and then picked a super powers book)

    • I don’t remember all the details of the last books, so this reread will help me decide which books I liked better… I do agree that the later books are different/darker than the first few and maybe not as good.

      I’m glad I didn’t see the movie haha, it would have stopped me from reading the book for sure… Beautiful Creatures was a great read though, definitely worth it!

      And I still haven’t properly started my romance read haha, I prefer finishing my HP reread first. 😉

  6. I love Harry Potter and did a reread last year and loved it. Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire is my favorite book. I have the whole Beautiful Creatures series on my shelf and happy to hear that you though it was great. Looking forward to reading your review. I am mainly reading Romance this month in honor of Valentine’s Day. But I usually don’t read a book if it doesn’t have a least a hint of romance.

    • The Goblet Of Fire is one of my favorite books of the series as well… The first book of the Caster Chronicles was great and I’m looking forward to be reading the rest of the series as well!
