#WWW Wednesday – 17/2/21

Hey everyone! This is one of my favourite weekly tags, so many people do it that it’s really fun. WWW Wednesday is hosted over at Taking On A World Of Words, check out their site 🙂 If you’ve had a go at this tag, feel free to link your post in the comments. Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to this week!


What I Finished Recently

Recently, I’ve been talking quite a lot about the Simonverse – mainly because I just finished Love Creekwood and you can find my review of this adorable book here. I’ve also been rewatching the film and was inspired to make a cross-stitch of my OTP, which you can find here 😁.

This week, I also finished Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley which was a moving story about two girls who fall in love during the racial tension of 1960s America. I was also lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of Jane Austen Investigates which was as fun as it sounds, and a bit of light reading!

What I’m Currently Reading

Did you know that there’s a fifth Maze Runner book? I didn’t… so when I saw it and immediately bought it, I forgot that I couldn’t remember a thing about what happened in the series. So, I’m currently rereading them and I’d also forgot how good they are.

Literally, I could read this for hours. It’s been months since I read a book that actually had me ignoring other things that I should be doing (including sleeping. So I might be a bit tired. But it was worth it!). These books are the best dystopian premise I’ve ever read. It’s the sort of book where every chapter ends on a cliff hanger AND ITS SO HARD NOT TO LOOK AT IT! Has that ever happened to you?

However, I must admit that the whole killer virus wipes out half the population and leaves world in apocalypse felt a little bit close to home, so I might be waiting a little before I read the next book!

What I Want To Read Next

I don’t know whether to be excited for this. I am, but I don’t want to be let down? However, I’ve seen a lot of people say that it’s even better than From Blood And Ash, so I’m interested how!

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.

  1. Great now I’m going to have to reread The Maze Runner series so I can read the fifth book too. It’s been years since I first read them and I don’t remember all that much.

      1. House of Many Ways- if you want to read that, you need to read Howl’s Moving Caste first or nothing will make sense.

        Look for my overall review of the Howl’s series

  2. I didn’t know there was another Maze Runner book either. It’s been …wow…so many years since I read the others. It sounds like a fantastic read! I love it when a book stops me from doing things I need to do.

  3. I didn’t know there is a fifth Maze Runner book either. I love it when a book is so good, I can’t be bothered to do anything else but read. ❤️

  4. Maze Runner was a series I really enjoyed! I definitely need to revisit it sometime. Enjoy your reading!

  5. I still haven’t read Maze Runner but I think I really should, I’m glad you’re loving it so much! Have you read Loop by Ben Oliver?
    I’ve seen Jane Austen Investigates everywhere recently, another I might have to look into – do you need to know Jane Austen to enjoy it do you think?

    1. Not at all! To be honest, I thought it was a bit of unrelated detail that she was Jane Austen – literally the only reference to her growing up to be the great woman herself was that she enjoyed writing. And had the same name. I haven’t heard of loop – I’ll check it out though! Thanks for the recommendation 🙂

      1. I haven’t read Maze Runner like I say but based on what I know about it I think you’d like Loop. I loved it anyway, so hopefully you’ll enjoy it even if it’s nothing like MR!
        And that’s great to know about Jane Austen Investigates – I have no clue about Jane Austen but fo think it sounds fun so I’m going to try and squeeze it in now!

  6. I feel your hesitation on starting Kingdom of Flesh and Fire. After the amazingness of FBAA, I was also worried that I would be let down in AKOFAF. However, I really loved AKOFAF if it is any consolation. 😊 My sister was also shocked when she found out that there was a 5th Maze Runner book! (I don’t really follow that series so I didn’t think anything of it). I also totally get the whole waiting to start the next Maze Runner book.. I am reading The Stand (well I sort of put it on pause to read ACOSF) and it is also about a pandemic … it just hits too close to home so I sort of procrastinate on reading it😬

    Great post! Happy Wednesday. I hope you have a great rest of your week!!

    1. YES the procrastinating about reading a book about diseases!I know the pain – I know I’m being ridiculous but it does feel a bit too close to home? But I guess I’m not really trapped in a killer maze, so not that close to home 😂 Definitely worthy of ditching to read ACOSF…

    1. And I didn’t know that Julia Golding had written other things! Oops. I’ve had a google of her but I haven’t heard of any of her other books – does she mostly write for adults? I should really look into some of these authors haha. Hope you enjoy blood and ash, it’s really gooood.

      1. Lol, I’ve read some of her YA and juvenile fantasy, which is the only reason I know her 😂. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read of hers, though. Thank you! I’m really excited to read it. 😊
