{Aside} W.W.W. Wednesday – April 18th, 2018

In an effort to produce more regular content on my blog between reviews, I’ve decided I’m going to participate in WWW Wednesday! For those of you who might not be aware, this is a weekly book blogging meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

The purpose of this post is just to update those who follow the blog as to what I’m currently in the midst of reading, and have also just finished. I’m also hoping that it helps provide me a necessary boost of motivation in the middle of the week to power on through to the weekend!

Without further ado, lets dive in!

What are you currently reading?

At the moment, I’m reading The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton. This is a high fantasy retelling of Shakespeare’s King Lear. I’m about 85% through it now, with hopes to finish it up tomorrow. This will be a really interesting one to review, and one I am very glad I stuck with to see it through!

What did you recently finish reading?

The last book I finished was Circe by Madeline Miller, and The Terror by Dan Simmons! So far this year I’ve tackled some pretty hefty tomes. I’m actually sort of proud!

What do you think you’ll read next? 

I have got to catch up on some ARCs! Next up on the docket are some approvals through Netgalley:

388398

In the Eye of Heaven by David Keck is an epic fantasy published by Tor that I requested off Netgalley before I realized the book has a 3% rating on goodreads. I’m hoping it’s just really high fantasy that people are rating unfairly. I’m going to stay positive and dive into this next!

 

After that I’ve just been approved for Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton.

This book has been all over my feed in recent weeks. I’m really eager to jump into it!


What are you reading this week? Anything good on your docket for planned reads? Let me know below!

  1. Nice! I haven’t read any of the ones you mentioned here. Right now, I’m reading a NetGalley ARC, too, called Murder on the Flying Scotsman. It’s quite like Agatha Christie but idk if the murder plot will live up to her works yet.

    Do you ever feel like you’ve ‘over-read’ what with all the ARCs and your own purchases?

    1. I hope your netgalley read does live up to the murder mystery goddess Ms. Agatha Christie’s name. Wouldn’t that be great?

      I definitely experience buyer’s remorse about some of the arcs I request from netgalley… I just get to clicking and usually end up requesting way more than I should!

  2. Have you read any of the novels in the Hogarth Shakespeare collection. The publisher has tasked well-known authors with reimagining Shakespeare’s classics. They are worth checking out if you enjoy Gratton’s book.

  3. Let me know how the high fantasy is!! I enjoyed reading those when I am not reviewing. As for me, my up and coming is: Everything She Lost, Bashert (which I am on the fence about), Be Careful What You Joust For and The Blue Unicorn’s Journey to OSM (not a children’s book….lol)
