Happy Wednesday everyone!
Are you surprised we’re already in the middle of the week? I sure am. Being cooped up at home I just feel like I’m on autopilot, so to avoid getting some serious cabin fever (I’ve been feeling more and more restless with time) I made some small plans this weekend to get out into the world (safely of course).
Anyways, back to the post!
Every Wednesday I participate in a meme called WWW Wednesday.
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.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply 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?
Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.
Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.
At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.
Until one day, he does…
As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?
Opinion so far:
This is my buddy read with Misty’s Book Space this month. Buddy reads have been a bit delayed this month, which is totally my fault because I keep trying to sneak reads in constantly. I really need to get better about that!
Anywho, we will be starting this read tomorrow or Friday and I’m looking forward to it!
On a cold Sunday evening in early 1957, Sarah Dewhurst waited with her father in the parking lot of the Chevron gas station for the dragon he’d hired to help on the farm…
Sarah Dewhurst and her father, outcasts in their little town of Frome, Washington, are forced to hire a dragon to work their farm, something only the poorest of the poor ever have to resort to.
The dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye, though. Sarah can’t help but be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesn’t have a soul, but who is seemingly intent on keeping her safe.
Because the dragon knows something she doesn’t. He has arrived at the farm with a prophecy on his mind. A prophecy that involves a deadly assassin, a cult of dragon worshippers, two FBI agents in hot pursuit—and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.
Opinion so far:
I finished this late last night, and although this was an entertaining read, I did have some mixed feelings about some elements, primarily character actions and progression. Still worth a look though!
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
Up next on the chopping block is another Animorphs book, yay! I like the idea of Rachel in charge or at least competing to be, so here’s hoping this is better than the last book.
After that it’s short story time! Of course I’m going to continue my reads of Travis Liebert, how could I not?
Following that is my buddy read with Gigi aka The Beachy Reader. Okay, so I’m not 100% sure we’re reading Scythe (I can’t remember for the life of me), but we’re definitely going to read something fun and spooky together. Looking forward to it!
Last but not least is A Wicked Magic. This is one of my library loans that I better hurry up and finish before the library comes hunting me down. I’m only across the street from them, so I’ll be looking over my shoulder until I return this bad boy.
Wish me luck on my reads!
That’s a Wrap!
Okay folks, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.
