Hello Hello! How are you?
I’m having a bit of a bad week as I kind of worked myself to exhaustion these last weeks and now I need a big rest, so I’m spending a few days this week completely resting and reading as much as I can, because apparently, from the 25th of January, I have to go back to some face-to-face learning at university. Needless to say, I’m very angry.
Anyway, I’ve not been doing as much reading as I would like as I’m so tired and end up sleeping most of the day, but today, after my class, I am hoping to get through some books! What are you reading right now?
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking On A World of Words.
WWW Wednesday is based on 3 questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Rivers of London (#1) by Ben Aaronovitch
I started this book at the weekend and I’ve only gotten one chapter in because I kept falling asleep, but so far I’m liking it. This was a recommendation from Fiona from Fi’s Bibliofiles and Erika from And On She Reads and I’m glad they recommend this one to me as I think it’s going to be one I enjoy, as soon as I can read some more of it!
A Pinch of Magic (#1) by Michelle Harrison
I’m reading this book with the Middle Grade Marvels book club as the January BOTM and this is a LOT darker than the cover would first make you believe. I struggled with the first couple of chapters, but then the action started to happen and it’s getting so interesting. I think I’m going to love it and I am so lucky to have the second book already, so I can jump right in after finishing the first book!
The Binding by Bridget Collins
I’m buddy reading this with Candyce from The Book Dutchesses, and we are just about half-way through. This was also one that I wasn’t expecting to be as dark, but the writing style is so beautiful, it has me completely immersed every time I read and I think I’m going to adore it overall. Emmett is a really interesting character, this is definitely plot-driven I would say, and I hate some of the side characters, but I’m loving seeing Emmett grow and evolve. We read three chapters of this a day and I can’t wait for tonights!
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
I’m reading this book as part of the TWR Gang book club. I haven’t received my copy yet, so I listened to the first half on Scribd and for someone who has only ever read 2 other audiobooks, I’m really enjoying it and not struggling to keep up, which is strange because my eyes need words to follow for nearly everything. This one is fun, we suspect everyone and we have a lot of mad theories! I might finish this one tonight or tomorrow night after my class!
Clockwork Princess (#3) by Cassandra Clare
I only just started this and it is part of the Shadowhunter Saturday mission that I’m doing with Fiona! This one gets going fast, I’ve only read the prologue and the first chapter, so I can’t say much, but it has been months since I read Clockwork Prince, and I’m not struggling to remember characters. It feels like I’ve picked this one up right after finishing the one before, so that’s good! Looking forward to more!
The Unadjusteds (#1) by Marisa Noelle
This is the first book that I have finished in 2021 and also the first blog tour organised by Dave from @The_WriteReads! I loved it, I have to get all my thoughts in order to write my review today for my post going up tomorrow, but I really did enjoy this. I love dystopias anyway, and this one was just really good, I found the characters to be believable despite the fact you would think they wouldn’t be (you’ll know what I mean if you read the blurb) and the plot and setting were really well set up, even though I did guess one or two little twists. I bought the second one on Kindle already and I’m hoping to pick it up soon!
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
This weekend we are discussing our other Christie book and then we are jumping into the next one, so I thought I would start it early, or maybe I can try to hold out until my copy gets here! I already know the story of this one, but can’t really remember whodunnit, why and how, so I’m sure I’m going to have a lot of fun reading this book.
The Da Vinci Code (#2) by Dan Brown
I feel like starting this book next although I should probably wait until I finish some of the other ones, but I’m trying to cram in as many books as I can before I go back to university. I read the first book a few years ago but I still remember it vividly and I really enjoyed it. I’ve been told that this one is the best book of the series and I’m excited for it, so will definitely be starting it soon!
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus
Tonight I’m going to be starting the next buddy read with Stephen from Stephen Writes. We read the One of Us is Lying duology together a few months ago and really enjoyed it, so we knew we wanted to pick up her other book too. This one is more of a thriller I would say and closer to The Cousins by the same author, but I have an open mind and hoping to enjoy it!
That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed this post, tell me all about your current reads in the comments! See you soon, stay safe,
