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.
What I Want To Read Next
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!
