#WWW Wednesday – 17/3/21

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!


What are you reading? Have you tried any of these? Let me know in the comments!

Published by Hundreds&Thousands

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. I am a bit wary actually because of all the hype. I have no idea what to expect. Plus I didn’t enjoy Jennifer’s other series…which I tried reading. I feel like they all have this similar kinda pattern 😅🙁

      2. I haven’t tried her other books but I could see how they would be quite similar – I think she definitely has a formula that works for some people and not for others! I was going to say that I’d recommend it as light reading, but they’re some LONG books so it’s a bit of a commitment 😬

  1. I really enjoyed The Great Gatsby when I read it in college. The crazy thing is, Fitzgerald is so much easier to understand than most of his contemporaries- if you can believe it. I’m glad you are tackling it. Hope you enjoy it ❤️

  2. I really want to read From Blood and Ash! I have the first two books on my shelf but so far haven’t picked them up. I know I’ll love them but I just don’t have enough hours in the day sometimes. I hope all goes to plan with your next read!

  3. The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite classics! I honestly started it by hating it but the more I thought about everything and the characters I ended up loving it.

  4. While I read “The Great Gatsby” in high school, I still enjoyed it. I think it was my favorite “classic” that I read while in high school. Well, I did also enjoy quite a bit of Kurt Vonnegut… 😂 Anyway! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

  5. Ooh, sorry to hear The Kingdom of Flesh and Fire wasn’t great for you. How brave to check out Great Gatsby! Hope you finish it in time for your King of Scars re-read lol. Happy reading and great post!
