Happy Wednesday! If you’re unfamiliar with WWW Wednesday, it’s a weekly blog meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s are simple:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Nothing! I finished a book late last night and haven’t picked up another one yet.
I totally forgot to write a post last week so this is for two weeks and I finished 3 books!
First, I read Furysong by Rosaria Munda, this is the third and final book in the Aurelian Cycle. I absolutely loved this series and I’m so sad it’s done but I couldn’t help but binge read it. 5 stars for sure and one I think I’ll definitely reread in the future.
Then I read Middlegame by Seanan McGuire. I have had this book on so many TBRs and finally picked it up only to be disappointed. I am not a fan of books that are vague and mysterious just for the sake of vibes and never give any explanation. I would throw this in with The Starless Sea, it is trying to evoke a feeling with no concrete story. Not my thing and I didn’t enjoy it. I gave it 2 stars. I wrote a full review earlier this week on my blog.
Then last night I finished Arrows of the Queen by Mercedes Lackey. I’m glad I picked up this classic fantasy, it was interesting to see how this has impacted some more recent books I’ve read. However, after being pretty invested in the beginning, I wasn’t super invested by the end. There are some really big time jumps in here which just didn’t work for me in this story. It’s only 320 pages and covers over 2 years. This is a strange case where I wish a book was longer. I’m definitely glad I picked it up but don’t really feel the need to continue with the series. I haven’t run CAWPILE yet, it will be a high 3-star or low 4-star, I’m actually torn.
I’m hoping to fit in one more book in March. I think it will be this novella which is actually my team book for the Trope-ical Readathon, The Mimicking of Known Successes by Malka Older.
