Happy Hump Day World!
I’m running a bit low on time this week, so I’m going to get straight to the post. And awayyy we go!
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?
Behind the Veil, the hordes gather, eager to savage the world. But Kalann il Drakk, First of Chaos, is untroubled by the shimmering wall that holds his beasts at bay. For if he cannot cleanse the land of life, the races will do it for him. All he needs is a spark to light the fire.
Three unlikely allies stand in his way.
A misfit elf plagued by failure—
When Elanalue Windthorn abandons her soldiers to hunt a goblin, she strays into forbidden territory.
A changeling who betrays his home—
Talin Raska is a talented liar, thief, and spy. He makes a fatal mistake—he falls for his mark.
A halfbreed goblin with deadly secrets—
Naj’ar is a loner with a talent he doesn’t understand and cannot control, one that threatens all he holds dear.
When the spark of Chaos ignites, miners go missing. But they won’t be the last to vanish. As the cycles of blame whirl through the Borderland, old animosities flare, accusations break bonds, and war looms.
Three outcasts, thrust into an alliance by fate, by oaths, and the churning gears of calamity, must learn the truth. For they hold the future of their world in their hands.
Opinion so far:
I’m just over halfway through with this read, and I have to say, I’m very impressed! Though I did have a little struggle getting into things (I haven’t read high fantasy in years), it’s really fun and engaging. Talin’s my fave so far! Look out for my review later on in the week. Hoping to finish by Saturday.
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.
What a fun read! Overall this was a great continuation of the series with characters with depth, a fun plot, and great universe building.
Check out my full review if you’d like to take a peek. I definitely recommend!
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
Up next on the ole TBR is my buddy read of Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson. I’ll be reading this with Gigi aka The Beachy Reader, and we’ve both got some high hopes for this one. I mean, look at that cover! Fingers crossed this one doesn’t disappoint!
After that I’ll be delving into Frank by Ece Gurler. I mentioned this before, but this was a Christmas gift from a good friend, and I’m ready to read something aimed at a younger audience for a change.
Last but certainly not least is The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I’ve been delaying starting this series for over a year, and a used copy is sitting on my bookshelf all sad and neglected, so why not? I loved the movie and the concept, so I’m excited to see how this shapes up. If I like this enough I’ll probably binge my way through.
Wish my luck on my reading journey, and best of luck on yours!
That’s a Wrap!
Okay folks, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.
