Happy Hump Day Bookworms!
We’ve made it halfway through the week already, can you believe it?
That being said, let’s take a moment to share what we’re reading in another round of WWW Wednesday.
In case you haven’t participated before, this meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
This meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Philip is a good boy, a really good boy, who accidentally gets sent to Hell to become the Devil’s heir. The Devil, Lucifer, is dying and desperately in need of a successor, but there’s been a mistake and Philip is the wrong boy. Philip is terrible at being bad, but Lucifer has no other choice than to begin the difficult task of training him in the ways of evil. Philip gets both friends and enemies in this odd, gloomy underworld—but who can he trust, when he discovers an evil-minded plot against the dark throne?
The Devil’s Apprentice is volume 1 in The Great Devil War-series.
Opinion so far:
I’m just over halfway done with this book, and I love it!
Since I am involved in the blog tour and will be posting on Thursday, I’m not going to tell you any more than that.
Sorry, you’ll just have to be mad at me!
Meet Roger. Skilled with words, languages come easily to him. He instinctively understands how the world works through the power of story.
Meet Dodger, his twin. Numbers are her world, her obsession, her everything. All she understands, she does so through the power of math.
Roger and Dodger aren’t exactly human, though they don’t realise it. They aren’t exactly gods, either. Not entirely. Not yet.
Meet Reed, skilled in the alchemical arts like his progenitor before him. Reed created Dodger and her brother. He’s not their father. Not quite. But he has a plan: to raise the twins to the highest power, to ascend with them and claim their authority as his own.
Godhood is attainable. Pray it isn’t attained.
Overall I was conflicted with this book. While it had some strong pros, it was almost overshadowed by the cons I experienced.
I can’t recommend this book, and I can’t say not to read it either, but who knows? Maybe it’s for you.

My Thoughts Up Front:
I think reading The Devil’s Apprentice this week has allowed me to get a tad bit back on schedule, so I’m looking forward to continuing down the list on my TBR.
The books above are the last on my TBR that aren’t specifically in line with my Halloween celebration (more to come in another post, I promise!).
I’m giving myself until 9/15/19 to finish these books, and I think I can do it! Hopefully I can sneak another Animorphs read or two in there too. I’m beginning to get homesick (Animorphs is home to me).
That’s a Wrap!
All righty then, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.
