WWW Wednesday – 21 August 2019

Good morning bookworms!

Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday! What is this, you ask? Well, it’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the three following questions:

  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

So, without further ado, let’s get started!

ARC August might continue, but I’ve been taking a mini hiatus from it to reread The Nevernight Chronicle as Darkdawn came out in Australia on Monday. However, because I was so sick last week it’s taken me since last Wednesday to read the first 250 pages of Nevernight, and as we all know, it’s a 427 page book, so I’m still a ways off… (fingers crossed for a finish by tonight!)
Which ultimately means, I didn’t finish anything this week.

It also means that I am basically only reading Nevernight of the below list!!
However, I did run a poll on my Insta stories on Monday/Tuesday to see if everyone thought I should continue with the reread, or ditch it and jump straight to Darkdawn… and the results were a dead even 50:50. Literally, every time I got a vote to swing it one way, the next person swung it back. (Basically telling me that my Instagram friends are evil and want me to suffer.)

Key: 📖 physical book | 📱 ebook | 🎧 audiobook | 💥 webcomic | 📚 ARC August

  • Nevernight – Jay Kristoff (reread) 📖
  • 📚 StepSister – Jennifer Donnelly (thanks Hotkey) 📖 – 22%
  • 📚 DEV1AT3 – Jay Kristoff (thanks Jay) 📖 – 32%
  • Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine – Gail Honeyman 📖 – 2%
  • Siege and Storm – Leigh Bardugo 📖 – 13%
  • The Falconer – Elizabeth May 📖 – 7%
  • Ace of Shades – Amanda Foody 📖 – 11%
  • Stormdancer – Jay Kristoff 📖 – 21%

However, something that has just struck me as mildly concerning, is that I now have THREE currently reading books by Jay Kristoff. Hypotheses:

  • Having experienced Nevernight and Godsgrave (and knowing the final outcome for Mia in Darkdawn), I am now hesitant to finish anything as I know I will be subject to pain.
  • The stories are too good for me to finish (also why I am holding off on reading Darkdawn?).
  • I hate finishing books, and this is a huge coincidence.
  • Ooooh, something shiny!

I admit that I do now have 16 (there was a new one added) ARCs to read, and I AM getting to them, I promise. However, I want to finish this reread, and then despair while reading Darkdawn, so this will be my ACTUAL reading next list.
