This 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, go check out their site 🙂 If you’ve had a go at this tag, feel free to link your post in the comments. And here’s what I’ve been up to this week!
What I Finished Recently
I feel like I needed/deserved to treat myself with something… lighter after finishing ‘A Kingdom Of Flesh And Fire’. It wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy it, more that I had too many problems that overwhelmed the better sections. Seriously, it had more plot holes than a sieve and it meant that all the best bits fell out. Find my review here 🙂
So, I tried ‘You Should See Me In A Crown’ by Leah Johnson. It was a very cute sapphic read that’s been on my WTR forever about a girl who needs to win prom queen to get scholarship money and I was so glad to finally get round to it. Keep an eye out for my review later this week 🙂
What I’m Currently Reading
I’m currently reading ‘The Great Gatsby’… voluntarily! And the reason for this is definitely because I feel I should try this famous piece of literature, not because I can then tell people that I’ve read it…
The language is kind of hard work so far, and I feel like I should be highlighting and analysing every other word. But other than that I’m enjoying it!
What I Want To Read Next
My next stop is a very strategic reading of ‘King of Scars’ by Leigh Bardugo. The sequel, ‘Rule Of Wolves’ comes out in less than two weeks and I want to go straight into that from ‘King Of Scars’ (so read it as late as possible) but also not get any spoilers by reading it too late (ie. read close enough to release date so meme pages can’t get to work). If my calculations are correct, I should fit inone book before ‘King Of Scars’ reread… but I picked the seemingly very complicated ‘The Great Gatsby’ so my fool-proof plan may not have been as fool-proof as I thought. It’s very complicated!
