#WWW Wednesday – 2/3/22

This one of my favourite weekly tags, I love how many people do it – and it’s always nice to rant about how excited I am for my next read. WWW Wednesday is hosted over at Taking On A World Of Words, go and 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

Booktok should be proud of me, I finally read The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid… but I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. While the characters were brilliant, there were a few things that didn’t sit well with me – find out why in my review here.

You don’t know how honoured I felt to discover that there was more books in the world of the Raven Boys and Call Down The Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater was one of the most immersive books I’ve read in a long time. As always, the characterisation was gorgeous and the plot was trippy and wonderful. While I was too busy scribbling in the margins about how much I loved it to write a review, I’ll definitely review the next book – Mister Impossible – because I can’t wait to see how these new characters develop!

What I’m Currently Reading

Another book that’s sort of letting me down – The Gilded Ones by Namina Forma. I love the whole concept of female demons discovering their powers, the training montages are great and the representation is even better… so I don’t know why I’m not really enjoying it? I’m only about half way through, so maybe it will pick up, but the three stars I’m putting it at now is much lower than I thought it would be.

I’m so excited to return once more to the Dreamer’s world with Mister Impossible… and maybe finally understand why they’re calling down a hawk?

I also think I’ll finally get round to reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. That gorgeous cover has sat on my shelf for months and I think I’m finally in the right head space to read it. Have you tried it? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!

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 enjoyed The Bell Jar, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had been a bit younger when I read it.
    I have both Seven Husbands and Calling Down The Hawk waiting to be read. I will get around to them eventually! I love the cover for The Gilded Ones.


    1. Ahhh I’m so glad I found someone else who didn’t love the gilded ones – it just fell a bit flat for me? YES I ALSO LOVE THE RAVEN CYCLE SO MUCH! I discovered it last year and I’m making my way through everything she’s written, I love her style so much.
