WWW Wednesdays #66 – November 25th

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



I’ve started Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes yesterday evening and it’s still too early to tell if I’m going to enjoy this story… I’ve heard mixed things about it, so fingers crossed it’s not too bad. I’m also reading Melophobia by James Morris, a very interesting ARC and story so far.



Three books finished this week and that’s mostly thanks to the last two being super quick reads, because it took me ages to finish Winter.
* The first is Winter by Marissa Meyer. Although I’m sad the series has ended, I really enjoyed reading this fourth book My heart almost stopped at some points in the story though; damn you plot twists!
* I decided to read my TBR jar pick Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple afterwards, which turned out to be a quick although not outstanding read. More about my complaints in my upcoming review…
* The last book I finished yesterday evening: Between Shades Of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. A very hardbreaking story, although I wasn’t fully convinced by the prose itself (it sounded too childish, and not in a The Boy In The Striped Pajamas good way.)



To be honest, I’m not sure what I’m going to read next… But at least these four covers color match! 😉 I might read The Death Code by Lindsay Cummings so I can cross off another series or start a new one with The Young Elites by Marie Lu. But to be honest, I’m not sure if I’m in the mood to read fantasy right now. I also want to try and read Paperweight by Meg Haston soon even though it sounds like a sad story… And I have a new TBR jar pick: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I have been wanting to read another Gaiman novel for ages so this is the perfect excuse to do just so!

    • I loved Winter, but I’m sad that the series is over… I hope Marissa Meyer will write a novella about Thorne after finishing The Princess And The Guard. 😉 The Ocean At The End Of The Lane is my favorite Gaiman so far, although I really enjoyed both American Gods and The Graveyard Book as well. I’m looking forward to find out if Neverwhere is just as good!

    • I’ve just finished writing my full review, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s mostly the characters and cliche descriptions that bothered me… I did like the general plot and loved their journey to Antarctica.

    • I ended up being in the mood for a ‘lighter’ read so I’m putting Liars, Inc on hold until tomorrow… It’s not bad so far, but like you I have seen mixed reviews so I don’t want to set my expectations too high. I’ve heard nothing but great things about Paperweight though.

  1. I’ve heard good things about the Lunar Chronicles and about Winter in particular! I think I’m going to add the series to my TBR 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my post earlier. Happy reading! 🙂

    • I think the first book Cinder is still my absolute favorite, but I enjoyed all four books. The novellas are entertaining as well, although not as good as the main series… Happy reading! 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing about ‘Between Shades of Grey.’ Maybe going into it knowing the prose is a bit young will help me like it. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

  3. I just got Liars, Inc a couple days ago 🙂 I really want to read the Young Elites soon! I’ve had it since the beginning of the year and haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. So many good books in your post! 🙂

    • I have been wanting to read The Young Elites for ages as well! I’m not in the mood for fantasy right now, but hopefully I will be able to read it soon. I’m not too far into Liars, Inc. yet, but hopefully I will end up belonging to the group that did like it. 😉

    • The review of Where’d You Go, Bernadette is scheduled for tomorrow. 😉 And if Neverwhere is as good as his other books, I’m sure I will enjoy it. Happy reading!
