#WWWWednesday: 01 April

Hello, hello and welcome back to another episode of WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words, which means I’ll be answering these questions:

  1. What did you read last?
  2. What are you currently reading?
  3. What will you read next?

Since last Wednesday I’ve managed to read… three books!

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor #1) by Jessica Townsend ★★★★★
This was such a wonderful, fast-paced and heartwarming adventure! There may be a lot of elements that are similar to and remind me of Harry Potter but to me, this was just as enjoyable. The characters were all funny, charming and very quirky. The pacing was also fast and I couldn’t recommend this more if you’re looking for a simple, well-written fantasy/adventure to take your mind off current world news. Review coming soon!

Warcross (Warcross #1) by Marie Lu ★★★★☆
The ending of this book should be illegal! What a bleeding cliffhanger–if Wildcard didn’t already exist I would be pissed (and I absolutely mean this in the best way)! 🤣 This book was a helluva journey and I was here for every minute of it! The Warcross world gave me strong Ready Player One vibes but a simplified and easier to understand version that made reading it a breeze. I was sucked in from chapter one and I became fully invested in all our characters! Really keen to see what happens next… Review coming soon!

The Sunday Potluck Club (The Sunday Potluck Club #1) by Melissa Storm ★★¾
It took me several tries to actually get into this book but once I did it was a fast and fairly easy read. That said, it left me feeling pretty “meh” and was very different to what I expected. I thought there would be chats shared during the Sunday Potluck Club but what I got was insta-love, a lot of romance angst, and not particularly likeable characters… I really didn’t feel for any of them! Review coming soon!

I’ve been saying it everywhere and to everyone: I haven’t picked up a book since last Friday! Since I got Animal Crossing (and Spyro) last week I haven’t been able to put down my Switch for very long. I’m just a little obsessed and when I get sucked into these gaming modes, the only thing I know that will help is to play it out of my system! Hopefully it happens soon…

Technically though I am still reading Jade City. It’s enjoyable but not sucking me in very quickly and it’s taking me much longer to read than I expected… Tonight I’m also starting my buddy read of Ruthless Gods with Sammie @ The Writerly Way! It’s happening… I swear I’m putting down my Switch!

I have so many freaking blog tour reads that I needed to basically start this past weekend if I wanted to stay on top of things BUT LIFE??? (so this Elmo gif is still really valid)

How is your reading week going and what are you currently reading?

    1. AC is SO addictive! Do you want to be island friends?! 😀 You can add me if you want: SW-4593-0344-8127 (no pressure if you don’t want to though)! Haha yeah… I think gaming is the only time it becomes hard to pick up a book 🤣

    1. It was SO good! I decided to get the physical copy of Wilcard and that’s going to take a looong time to arrive because the e-book was quite $! I’m looking forward to reading it when it eventually arrives though 😂 Jade City IS pretty intense and detailed! Lol I don’t know why I wasn’t expecting that… I think I might put it on hold until my brain gives the OK for more intricate reads 🤣

    1. Hahaha I’m sure you’ve seen loads of animal crossing posts 😂 It kinda swept wildly through the book community and caused the abandonment of many a book, I think 🙃 Be glad that you don’t know what it is because it’s addictive as heck!

    1. I know a lot of people enjoyed it though… I just wasn’t a fan of the romance (it was a little insta-lovey) and since that ended up being a big part of the story it just didn’t work for me! 😔 It started off well though! Lol

  2. I finished Jade City yesterday. I thought it was okay but it didn’t blow me away like it did a lot of other people. I feel kind of bad for being in the minority with that one but seeing your thoughts on it makes me feel better.

    1. I have a feeling if I keep reading it now I will feel the same as you (actually I have a feeling either way I will feel the same as you) 🤪 But I’m just really not able to focus on it right now so I’m going to come back to it again once my brain has given me the go for more intricate details 😅 Well done on finishing it though! Haha

      1. Totally understandable! I might skim read a print version at some point to see if I can pick up on anything I might have missed, but I’m glad that I finished it for now. 🙂
