WWW WEDNESDAY 4/8/2020

Hey everyone! Back again with another WWW Wednesday hosted by Taking on a World Of Words. WWW Wednesday is where you answer the following questions: What are you currently reading? What have you recently finished? What do you plan on reading next? Let’s get into it!

What are you currently reading?

Yes I’m still reading this. I’m using it for the OWL prompt of reading at night for Astronomy, but I work overnights. So it’s hard to read this then. So I may switch it with something else so I can get back into it.

My Care of Magical Creatures prompt of a beak on the cover. The reread that will once again have me feeling all of the things.

What have you recently finished?

What do you plan on reading next?

That’s the only concrete reading plan I have. I set a TBR for the OWLs and clearly have not followed it lol at this point it’s a read and figure out what goes where at the end of April.

My first book haul post revisited!

Hey everyone! Today I thought I would do something different. In two months I will be hitting one year of this blog!! So I was scrolling through my first few posts and came across this post that is my June Wrap Up and Book Haul. So I thought I would revisit that haul and see if I have read all (or most) of them or not. I don’t even remember most of that haul lol Let’s get started!!

2nd and Charles (used bookstore)

Illuminae 5 stars! I loved this entire series.

Carry On Again 5 stars! I had actually read this before I started my blog, but I didn’t have my own copy until then. I still have yet to read Wayward Son or Fangirl.

The Maze Runner 4 stars. I really enjoyed this. Granted I may have to do a reread when I go to continue the series because I have a vague recollection of what happened lol

Passenger is still unread. It’s been on so many TBRs and I have yet to pick it up even though I really want to read it.

Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda Another 5 stars! I absolutely loved this book and the movie as well. They both were so good imo.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe 4 stars. The feels with this one!! These two young gentlemen have my heart just like Simon & Blue and Simon & Baz 💚

Book Outlet (my first order!!)

Shatter Me 3 stars. This was a recent read and yeaaa y’all know I felt about it lol currently reading Unravel Me so this will decide if I continue on (probably will because I’m becoming slightly invested.)

And I Darken is still unread. I am trying to read my shelves this year and so I’m doing well. So it should be read this year.

Rebel of the Sands is also unread. Again I should get to it this year.

Four 4 stars. I actually enjoyed this. Nice to see what one of faves was thinking. Plus I needed it after Allegiant killed me.

The Caster Chronicles books 2-4 (already owned book 1) plus the spinoff books:

Beautiful Darkness 4 stars

Beautiful Chaos 5 stars

Beautiful Redemption is this month’s read and I can’t wait to read the conclusion. Even though I don’t want it to end 😫

Dangerous Creatures will be read month.

Dangerous Deception will conclude my read of this world and that will be June’s read.

So for this book haul, I’ve read 9/15. Not bad. I had fun revisiting this haul and I might do another at some point.

Happy reading 💚

A Court of Wings and Ruin book review

This thick book here gave me conflicting feelings. It’s broken into 3 parts. Part one I absolutely loved! Feyre in this part is the Feyre I love to see. I was invested and smiling and everything at things she would do or say. Especially to certain characters.

Part two, the longest part of this 699 page book, where was my conflicting thoughts come in. It had some highs and lows and felt like it was longer than it needed to be. I felt like some chapters didn’t need to be there because it didn’t really add much except to add more feelings for the characters. They didn’t add much plot wise. I know I’m a big character person and not plot person, but this is one series where both needs to done equally. I did love some of the character building parts we got in this section. Mainly why I pushed through and kept going because they would either say or do something that had me curious on how it would play out. Of course as this is the third book in a series, I’m not going to give major details or spoilers.

Part three started just like part one. I absolutely was invested and here for it. All the action and twists and just yessss! However, I did have two issues with it. One of an authors choice of how a side character was handled. It was nothing bad…I just wished something different was done with that character so just a me thing. The second was the rest after all was said and done. I felt like it carried on for longer than needed to after things were handled.

Overall, I gave this book a 4. ACOMAF is definitely my favorite is the series. Now on to reading ACOFAS and then who knows when the next one is coming out lol at least I will be caught up.

First Line Fridays 4/3/2020

Hey everyone! I’m back with another First Line Fridays, hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author, or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first!
  • Finally…..reveal the book.
  • My mother drove me to the airport with the windows rolled down. It was seventy-five degrees in Phoenix, the sky a perfect, cloudless blue.

    This book is…
