Good Morning Blogosphere,
Wow, it’s already Wednesday! Can you believe it? Fingers crossed this work week passes without a hitch. I need another weekend with lots of reading and writing time! Anywho, 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?
All Nimue wants is a peaceful life, but her past won’t leave her alone. And when her friend Iseult brings news that her old rival Morgawse has been abducted, an impending catastrophe lands on her doorstep. And worse, the wizard responsible is Nimue’s ex, Nostradamus.
Dragged into another adventure, Nimue confronts her former flame as he wages a desperate quest, only to be thrust deeper into an escalating crisis. As Nimue struggles to unravel what is happening, she discovers dark secrets that threaten the heart of magical energy. Now it’s her fate to rescue magic for every witch and wizard, including her friends. Trouble is, she wants no part of being magic’s saviour.
Will Nimue step up as a champion? Or will she let the magical world die?
Opinion so far:
I’m just over halfway through this novel, and I’m having fun! I will say that I wish there was a bit more character progression, but the action in this book is really great! Hoping to finish this sometime tomorrow or Friday if I get held up on things.
All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she’s a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing.
Spensa is sure there’s more to the story. And she’s sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars–and it was terrifying. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie.
But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself–and she’ll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.
This was my first Brandon Sanderson read (it’s about time!), and I had a great time! All the characters had personality and felt real, and the plot was a winner too!
Glad I read this with my reading buddy Gigi (you can check out our rant here)!
I highly recommend checking this out whether you’re new to Sanderson or not.
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
First off, I just wanna say that my TBR is shaping up a bit ahead of schedule, which I’m really grateful for. I didn’t think I would catch up on my immediate list this quickly, so I’ve got some serious thinking to do soon!
Next up on my TBR is 7 Weeks in Hell, Iseult Murphy’s follow up to 7 Days in Hell, which I thought was fabulous. Excited to dig in!
After that, I’m involved in an ARC for Tammie Painter’s The Undead Mr. Tenpenny, the first in the Cassie Black series. Having read the majority of Painter’s other works, I’ve gotta say I’m really stoked about this! I know she’s put a ton of hard work into making this an exceptional series.
Last on the immediate list is Starsight, the second in the Skyward series by Brandon Sanderson. I really enjoyed the first Skyward book (my review’s right here), and since my new habit for the year is to try and finish all series as consecutively as possible, I’m putting this before other reads that are beckoning me. There’s a third book in this series coming out this year, but at least I’ll be caught up once I get through this one.
Wish me luck, and good luck to you as well on your reading journey!
That’s a Wrap!
Okay folks, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.
