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:
- What did you read last?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you read next?
Although I have actually been *reading things* over the past week, I’ve only managed to finish two books. One of which I’m already confident in saying will be my favourite read this month!
Jade War (The Greenbone Saga #2) by Fonda Lee ★★★★★
Friends, I honestly have nothing bad to say about this series. My level of investment in No Peak and the Kaul family is
almost at an unhealthy level but y’know what? I don’t care because these characters, this story, this world deserves everything. Although Fonda Lee continues to mercilessly hack away at what little feelings I have left, I can honestly say that I’d let her do it every single time cos that’s how much I love this book/series. This was another buddy read with Jess and we already have future plans to buddy read (or maybe even group read, if anyone’s interested?) Jade Legacy when it comes out in December. I just… I love this so much 😭 If you’re going to read this series I’d highly recommend the audiobooks! RTC.
The Lore of Prometheus by Graham Austin-King ★★★¾
I can count on one finger how many military urban fantasies I’ve read and although this was quite a step outside of my comfort zone (it’s a very dark read!) I still really enjoyed it. Austin-King makes it easy to visualise the real world setting while still managing to seamlessly introduce fantastical elements without making it seem out of place. The characters were realistic and so easy to root for and the humour woven into the story brought great and much needed comedic relief that balanced the story out well. I can definitely see why this book won the BBNYA 2020. Check out my blog tour review!
I was speeding through Not My Romeo when I wrote last week’s post but the minute I finished writing, I lost the drive to pick it up again? I still haven’t until now but I will finish it since I’m already just over 50%! I also haven’t picked up Aurora Burning since hitting the half-way mark but I’m planning to finish it tomorrow (most likely) cos Sammie is almost finished with it. I’m also (finally) on a roll with Exit Strategy, my buddy read with Leslie which I’m super behind on cos my moods have been wild and it’s made me fall behind on basically everything? 🙈 But it’s Murderbot and my stance on them has not changed—which is to say I freaking LOVE Murderbot❤️, k. I’ve also started Bloodlines, which is a supernatural urban fantasy/detective mystery and though I had no expectations going in, I’m pleased to say I’m really enjoying it so far. It’s still early days and I want to focus on finishing my buddy reads first before picking it back up but it’s for a blog tour next week but at this rate I’m predicting it’ll at least 4 stars!
Some more blog tours and buddy reads coming up! I recently also got approved for an ARC for She Who Became the Sun and I’m so happy? 😭
What’re you currently reading? Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR? Happy reading! 😍
