Welcome to another WWW Wednesday! I hope you all had an amazing reading week! Now, you’re probably wondering why I’ve posted another WWW Wednesday #18. Well, it seems that I clearly can’t count as last week’s WWW Wednesday was supposed to be #17. So, here were are with the official WWW Wednesday #18! (don’t worry, I’ve checked it this time… I think). Once again, this meme was originally hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and all you have to do is answer these questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
So without further ado, let’s get started!
What are you currently reading?
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Slow start so far… but my interest is peaked. Since I haven’t seen the movie, I really don’t know what to expect with this book. I really hope that the pacing picks up in the next couple of chapter as I really want to know what happens in the story.
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
I’m reading this book with my book club, which started at the beginning of February so I’m a bit behind. Oops. Not really my fault though, since my library took so long to get it. However, I am steadily catching up with the story and I’m actually surprisingly liking it so far. It is a bit slow as it mainly goes on about the character’s day to day life but I’m mostly staying for the author’s writing style. Benjamin Alire Saenz has a really interesting way of describing the settings through the perspective of the main character.
What did you recently finish reading?
Legend by Marie Lu
I think I’m going to be reading more from Ms Lu from now on. The world she created in this book was so well written that I could actually picture myself being in there with the characters. I mean, I don’t think I want to since it was set in a dystopian world and I don’t think I’d military officers banging on my door every so often to check if I have the plague.
The pacing was well done as well as the amount of action going on. I did, however, have a few issues about some plot holes as well as some awkward love scenes. I don’t know what it is about YA romance. Maybe, I’m just being too harsh when it comes to teenage love.
The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
After the disaster of the first two books, I told myself that I wouldn’t read another book from this series. However, since the last book ended in such a cliff-hanger my hunger to satisfy my curiosity ate away at me until I succumbed to its constant nagging. So, I picked up a copy at my local library as I wasn’t going to purchase a copy (like I did with the first two books in the series) just in case I ended up hating it.
To be honest with you, it wasn’t as mind numbingly boring as the first two books. It definitely had more going on and it wrapped up the story nicely. However, I still felt a bit ‘meh‘ about the whole thing. There were some things that didn’t make any sense and I felt that some things were just put there because Holly Black needed something to wrap up that character’s story or a measly explanation of why certain things happened in the second book.
Yes, it left me what a some-what satisfied ending to this story but after all the hype it got… it just was just very lukewarm and bland.
