WWW Wednesday, May 8

I’m so glad it’s Wednesday. It’s been a good week, but I’m glad it’s halfway done. This weekend, I get to go see The Lightning Thief musical, which I didn’t think I was going to get to do (I’m still not sure because I’m having trouble with my ticket; I’ll need to follow up on that). I’m super excited because I’ve heard good things about it. And I love going to see musicals in general. So, yeah, I’m halfway to that!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Each week, you answer three questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you just finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

King of Fools by Amanda Foody follows the further misadventures of Enne Salta and Levi Glaisyer, whom we met in Ace of Shades. Levi and Enne are plunged into the world of political intrigue. They must work together to help influence the fate of New Reynes. So far, it’s pretty good. I still prefer to read about Enne over Levi, but he’s not completely uninteresting. It’s just that I find her more interesting.

Aru Shah and the Song of Death by Roshani Chokshi. I really liked this book. The new characters were well written and interesting, if a little frustrating at times. The quest Aru and Mini were sent on was fun, and the villain, once again, had intriguing hidden depths. I like that they bad guys aren’t one dimensional in these books, but have inner lives and histories of their own. It makes them much more compelling.

I’m also listening to The Power of Vulnerability by Brene Brown. This isn’t really a book. It’s actually a recording of a series of lectures she gave at a conference on vulnerability and shame. It goes over a lot of the same information that The Gifts of Imperfection did, but it’s really interesting and she’s a great speaker. I almost don’t want to stop listening.

Next, I’m either going to read Once and Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy or Treacherous is the Night by Ana Lee Huber. I’ve been wanting to read them both. Maybe I will read them both!
