WWW Wednesday – IT’S A SNOW DAY!

WWW Wednesday was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm, and was taken over by Taking on a World of Words.

So the title of this blog gave it away, but it snowed a ton last night and during the day over here in the UK. There was that much that my boss told everyone to stay home and work from the comfort of our houses. So while I didn’t get to go out and enjoy the snow (it was -4 so it’s not that much fun) I was busy working away and managed to not get too distracted by the white stuff falling from the sky.

I did manage to read a little bit before I started my work for the day, so I guess it’s time to talk about books.

I have seen everyone reading this book lately, gearing up for its release in just over a weeks time. I have read nearly half of this book already and I am really enjoying it. Like I’ve said before, I haven’t read a book about sirens and pirates in a very long time and it’s a refreshing take on them. Hopefully I can finish this book before the weekend arrives.

between the blade and the heart

Between the Blade and the Heart was a fun and entertaining read that I enjoyed, even if it wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read. The characters were fairly likeable, there were action sequences and some Norse mythology thrown in with a cool urban fantasy setting. This book was definitely different to what I am used to reading, but it was refreshing. I gave this 3 stars and you can check out my review here.

What Do You Think You’ll Read Next?

Zenith

Ugh, so I suppose I should finish reading Zenith but I just can’t bring myself to do it, and I don’t know why. I was beginning to really like this book and then I just stopped reading it and now I can’t get back into it. I don’t really want to force it (because then I know I won’t enjoy it) but at the same time I hate leaving books unfinished. Maybe I’ll give this another try at the weekend and hope for the best.

We are one step closer to the weekend now and I can’t wait to relax (and for it to get warmer as well). I hope you’ve all been having a good week and are reading some great books.

WWW Wednesday – Creepy Fairy Tales

WWW Wednesday was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm, and was taken over by Taking on a World of Words.

This week has been flying by (probably because I had Monday off from work) but I am so glad we are getting closer to the weekend. I plan on getting a lot of reading done and I cannot wait to dig into the next book I want to read.

the hazel wood

By the end of today I will no longer be reading The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert because I have read 83% of it already. Plus, it also comes out tomorrow so I am going to try and get a review up tonight. So far I’ve been enjoying it and once we finally got to the Hazel Wood it really picked up. I’m going to be honest, I thought that the majority of this book would be set within the fairy tale world of Hinterland, when it actual fact our characters spent more time trying to get there. Fortunately, I am loving this book and cannot wait to see what happens in the last section.

What Did You Recently Finish Reading?

keeper of the watch

Unfortunately, Keeper of the Watch was my least favourite read of the year so far and you can see why in more detail within my review here. I know I said I would try and read some more Sci-Fi this year but I kind of regretted reading this book a little as it wasn’t what I expected. There were some good parts though, such as the action and fast pace.

What Do You Think You’ll Read Next?

reign of the fallen

As soon as I received this book in the post I knew I would be picking it up straight away. Not to mention the fact that the Hardback and cover is absolutely beautiful. If you haven’t heard of Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh then you need to check it out. It’s about Necromancers and honestly it just sounds so dark that I know I’m going to love it (or at least I hope I do).

I don’t have another NetGalley approval to read just yet, so I am looking forward to reading a hardback again. What books are you looking to read this week?
