WWW Wednesdays #71 – December 30th

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

  • WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

neverwhere

I have finally started reading my last TBR jar pick: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I’m still not too far into the story, but so far I’m really enjoying it… Hopefully I will magically find time to finish this read before the year is over!

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

Three books finished this week, and only because I managed to finish the last two yesterday…
* The first book is Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. I ended up quite enjoying the first story, but things went downhill from there…
* I then finished My True Love Gave To Me by Stephanie Perkins and a bunch of other authors yesterday. I loved some stories while I didn’t really like others… But overall it was an entertaining bundle of short stories.
* Last up is The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. I really like her prose and the story, although I could have done without the love triangle. It’s quite a sad read for the Holiday season though!

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

Now I have a copy of Illuminae by Amie Kaufman, I want to start reading it ASAP! Although I might wait until after Bout Of Books 15.0 because it’s quite a long read… I also want to read The Death Code by Lindsay Cummings so I can cross of another series from my to-finish list. The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury looks like a quick read, so I might pick that one up for the read-a-thon… And Serafina And The Black Cloak by Robert Beatty is my new TBR jar pick.

    • I never force myself to read a TBR jar pick straight away, and I guess that helps a lot if I’m not in the mood for a certain genre or book… Plus I like the idea of reading something I normally wouldn’t have picked up for a long time. 🙂

    • So far Neverwhere is really good, very magical realism and very Gaiman! Hopefully it will stay this way. I am so excited to be reading Illuminae soon! I have heard so many great things about it that I’m sure I will love it as well.

  1. Illuminae seems like a long read, but it is so easy to fly through it! I loved that book, as well as The Sin Eater’s Daughter! That was really good as well. And the sequel is supposed to come out in 2016! Here’s my post for the week. Happy reading!

    • Good to know Illuminae is still a fast read! I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve actually started reading The Sin Eater’s Daughter and I really enjoyed the first part until yet another cliche love triangle was introduced… Sigh. I’m keeping my fingers crossed the second half won’t have too much focus on the love triangle. Happy reading!

    • I can imagine Illuminae being a popular read at the library! I guess getting a copy is probably the easiest way, especially since it’s most likely really good anyway. I really like Neverwhere so far! Marquis de Carabas is definitely an interesting character.
