WWW Wednesdays #54 – August 26th

wwwwednesdaysWWW WEDNESDAYS is hosted by Sam at Taking On A World Of Words and is all about answering the three questions below.

  • WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

wwwaug26th2015currently
I’ve started reading The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins the other day and so far I’m really enjoying it. Fingers crossed that it will live up to the hype! I’ve also decided that I want to finish The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt before the end of the month, so I will try to dedicate more time to it. Hopefully I will be able to finish it before my next WWW post!

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

Partly thanks to the Bout Of Books read-a-thon last week I was able to finish no less than NINE books. I guess this month is going to be a new record! I’m seriously behind on my reviews though, so I will have to start writing them soon before I start mixing up the different plots and characters…
wwwaug26th2015finished
The first one on the list is Fairest by Marissa Meyer. Not as good as the main series, but it was interesting to learn more about how Levana became the person she is in the series. The prose was solid as always.
I continued with My Heart And Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga, and it was just as good as I was hoping for. Interesting characters, prose, plot… And the author described depression really well.
I read The Death Cure by James Dashner next and wasn’t impressed. I felt it lacked a proper plot and I wasn’t a fan of the ending… Definitely my least favorite book of the series so far.
Joyland by Stephen King was good: I loved the 1973 carnival setting and the prose was interesting as always. I didn’t see the ending coming for sure!
The Geography Of You And Me by Jennifer E. Smith was my TBR jar pick last week and unfortunately not as good as I thought it would be… Some of  the scenes just were too cheesy for me.

Next up is Me And Earl And The Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. I’m still not sure what to think of it; it’s highly original, but I’m not sure the humor didn’t go too far at points or if I actually liked some of the main characters.
I then couldn’t wait any longer and read Never Never Part Two by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher.  This part was even better than the first and unfortunately ended with a big cliffhanger as well.
Anatomy Of A Misfit by Andrea Portes wasn’t that great. I didn’t like most characters or the fact that it has a love triangle and the ending felt forced.
Last up is All Fall Down by Ally Carter, a read I have been looking forward to and even though it wasn’t what I was expecting, I ended up really enjoying it! The ending is a mayor cliffhanger though; I need the sequel!!!

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

wwwaug26th2015next
I will probably try to read The Kill Order by James Dashner so I can finish the series…Hopefully I will like it better than The Death Cure. I have been wanting to read Legend by Marie Lu for ages, so hopefully I will be able to finally start that series… And I have been wanting to read None Of The Above by I.W. Gregorio for a long time as well. The last one on this list is my newest TBR jar pick: I Was Here by Gayle Forman. This one was already on my Bout Of Books TBR, so I will probably get to it soon.

    • Unfortunately it’s yet another series that has a weak ending… But at least I’ve finished it now. 😉 The Girl On The Train is good so far, although I’m not too far into the story yet.

    • I’m keeping my fingers crossed I will be able to finish The Goldfinch by next week, but I still have about 60% to go… I will have to force myself not to start any new reads until I do. 😉 I love my TBR jar, although I’m not always reading the titles straight away… Mostly because I’m not in the mood for a specific title or genre.

      • It took me two months to read one of my last TBR jar picks, so I can totally understand that. Hopefully I won’t be waiting to long with my current pick! (I Was Here by Gayle Forman…)

  1. Good luck finishing The Goldfinch! And I hope TGOTT ends up meeting your expectations. I will be very interested to hear what you think when you finish it! 🙂

    I have heard that Legend is really good!

    • Thanks! I’m keeping my fingers crossed I will be able to finish it on time, but I still have a long way to go. 😉 The Girl On The Train is pretty good so far, although I’m still not sure if it’s actually worth the hype… And I have been wanting to read Legend for ages now; hopefully it’s just as good as people say.

    • So far it’s interesting; I hope to get more reading done tonight so I can find out if it stays good. I want to finish it so I can continue with The Goldfinch…

  2. As always, amazing book choices and so many that I really want to read!
    I hope you love None of the Above! I thought it was such a great book and one of my favorites this year. I pretty much finished it all in one day (besides the last 50 pages, which I finished right away the next day).
    I Was Here was a pretty good read as well.
    I am dying to read Legend and I’m still angry at myself that I didn’t buy the series when it was on sale for Kindle. 😦
    Here is my post:

    • Yay! 😀 I’m really looking forward to None Of The Above, although I will probably end up reading it next month because I really want to finish The Goldfinch first (after like two months lol). Good to know I Was Here is worth reading! The plot is pretty similar to some of the books I’ve been reading recently, so I might squeeze in some fantasy reads before picking up that one…

  3. I’m reading ‘The Scorch Trials’ right now and I’m hoping I like it more than ‘The Maze Runner’ which I found frustrating. Fingers crossed! Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    • I hope you will enjoy it better than I did! I wasn’t really a fan of The Maze Runner either, and while The Scorch Trials has a slightly better plot I still wasn’t blown away by it. The Death Cure is probably the worst of the three though. Happy reading! 🙂

    • Yay! I’m ashamed to admit I actually started The Goldfinch back in July… Almost two months ago! Oops! That’s probably one of the reasons I really want to finish it ASAP. It’s not that I don’t enjoy reading it, but the pace is very slow and I guess I have been ignoring this poor read.
