WWW Wednesdays #40 – May 20th

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?

treasureislandcityofashesI’m currently reading the second book of The Mortal Instruments series: City Of Ashes. I mainly started reading it because it was my TBR jar pick, because I wasn’t planning on continuing the series any time soon… So far it’s ok, but I still prefer The Infernal Devices. I’ve also started Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson the other day, a classic I’m not really enjoying so far.

  • What did you recently finish reading?

fallingintoplacethewickedwillriseLast week was Bout Of Books week and I was able to finish no less than six books! Woot! The last two were Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang and The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige. The first I didn’t end up enjoying as much as I initially thought, which is mostly because of the annoying characters. The Wicked Will Rise was actually better than the first book in the series, or at least it had more action in it.

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

I need this one for my Bookish Bingo challenge and it sounds like an interesting read.

  1. I gave up on the Mortal Instruments series after the third book. I think the long stretches between releasing the books did me in. And since then I’ve really had no desire to pick them up. Too many books and not enough time! Enjoy your reads this week! I’ve heard good things about Libba Bray books but have never tried one.

    • I can understand why; having to wait so long for a sequel when the story isn’t THAT special definitely doesn’t help… I have a copy of the third and fourth book on my shelves but even so I’m not sure if I will continue this series any time soon after finishing City Of Ashes. There are so many other series I want to continue first…
      I have heard great things about Libba Bray as well, so I’m curious to find out if I enjoy her work as well.

  2. I listened to the audio for ‘The Diviners’ earlier this year and really enjoyed it. I hope you like it as well! Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    • Thanks! I need a break from the fantasy genre, so this realistic fiction book about bullying sounds like the perfect read. Happy reading! 🙂

  3. Glad to hear you enjoyed The Wicked Will Rise more than the first book! 🙂 Tease seems like an interesting read, and so does The Diviners. 😉 I agree, TID was better than TMI, but I like both series. ❤ Happy reading!

  4. TMI was not my favorite. I only read the first 3 books, and wasn’t interested in finishing the series. I’m sorry to hear you don’t really like Treasure Island so far; it’s one of my favorites, and I’ve read it several times. Though I’ve also read Swiss Family Robinson like 5 times, and that can be a little dry at times, lol.

    The Wicked Will Rise is on my TBR list, as I just finished the first book! Great list! 😀

    Thanks for stopping by my WWW.

    • I’m not sure if I will end up continuing TMI until the end either; I have the first four books, but I will probably end up abandoning it before… I guess I was expecting a different story when I started Treasure Island. I’m only 28% into the story so far though, so things can change… 😉

    • I guess that’s part of my problem as well; a lot of people seem to love this classic, but so far it hasn’t convinced me yet. The second half might though, who knows?!
