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 reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m currently reading Dark Side of the Moon by Sherrilyn Kenyon, which is the 9th novel in her Dark-Hunter series. I’ve only ever read one Dark-Hunter book before, but I thought I’d give it another chance because I wanted a quick, easy read before my trip next week. The book is okay, but the writing style doesn’t quite flow easily. I’m struggling through some of the scenes, especially when she switches POVs between paragraphs with no warning.
Because I’m struggling so much, I decided to start Jack of Thorns by Amelia Faulkner, which is an eARC I got from NetGalley. It’s about a drug addict Laurence who has future sight and during an overdose has a vision about a man. Fast forward three years and he runs into that man, an Earl from England. There’s also a stalker ex-boyfriend thrown into the mix. Once again, the writing style isn’t quite gelling with me, but that may have been because I was exhausted last night when I started reading. It’s interesting and I look forward to seeing how it’ll unfold.
I’m also listening to Heart of Iron by Ashely Poston, which I’m really enjoying. I can’t listen to it as much as I’d like, since I’m totally fried after therapy all day and can’t concentrate on my drive home, but I’m liking all the characters and the plot and the little romance that’s going on.
A Case of Possession by KJ Charles was a bit of a struggle to read. I really love the characters, but there are giant, murderous rats in this and I was a little squicked. But it did have a couple of very romantic scenes and what may be my favorite line ever, so it was worth it.
Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann was utterly charming. The main character, Alice, is just a delight and so joyful. I would love to be more like her.
On my trip, I plan to read Flight of Magpies by KJ Charles and Fledgling by Molly Harper. I just realized that Fledgling is the second in the series (it didn’t say that on NetGalley, and I wish it had… or maybe it did and I just missed it), so I might buy the first and read that. We’ll see. I’m also going to read All The Better Parts of Me by Molly Ringle, which is also an ARC. I was actually declined for that one, but the publisher contacted me and said it was an accident and sent it to me personally, which is just so cool! I guess it pays to have a good rating on NetGalley. Can you review a book you haven’t been approved for on NetGalley?
That’s my reading week. What are you reading this week? Drop a comment below and let me know!
