WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking On a World of Words. It’s a meme that takes place every Wednesday, where the posters discuss 3 Ws:

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

    A Curse so Dark and Lonely is on my TBR! Not sure how much priority I should put on it though, do you like it so far??

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:33 pm

      I really like it so far! I will say that my first impression has been that it’s pretty dark for YA fantasy, so if that bothers you, maybe be aware of that beforehand — the opening scene is literally talking about a mass murder, basically.

    Great post, I hope you enjoy A Curse so Dark and Lonely 🙂

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:33 pm

      Thank you, friend! ♥ It’s been good so far, but I keep forgetting to make progress in it because I’m just not reading much right now. I’m still hoping I can knock out the rest of it by the next WWW post!

    i’m really interested in your thoughts on the Fever series!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:36 pm

      Right now, I’m a little over half through Darkfever, and I have SUPER mixed thoughts. On one hand, the plot is so interesting and I love that the fae are actually scary and gruesome and wicked? But on the other hand, Mac annoys the everloving hell out of me every time she opens her mouth and I want to scream over what a “Mary Sue” she is. 😂 But I’ve heard she gets MUCH better around book 3 or so, and I’m invested enough (plus it moves quickly enough) that I definitely think I’ll continue the series.

      • Reply Erin Eliza January 22, 2019 at 8:20 pm

        I only made it through book 5 but I think I want to go back and reread and then push through the rest of the series. I also had mixed feelings often and I DEF wanted to shake Mac a few handful of times but there are so many other parts of the world and story that make you stick around. I’m gonna keep my peepers open for your review haha.

    I finally picked up HP today!!! (Woohoo!!) I’m also considering joining the group read for A Girl Like Her in Feb and you’re just enabling me clicking that “buy” button 😂

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:37 pm

      Haha yaaaaay! A Girl Like Her is so good. ♥

      • Reply ✩ Ashley ✩ January 19, 2019 at 11:50 pm

        It’s good I still have a stack to get thru in the next 10 days or I would have started it I’m immediately 😂

    You read 11 books in one week, that’s awesome

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:37 pm

      Thank you! I had to knock out those graphic novels so I could return them to the library. 🙂

  • Reply lafemmelivresque January 16, 2019 at 11:54 pm

    I really badly want to read A Curse So Dark And Lonely! 😍 Also, Orange is amazing! Heartbreaking but SO good!! 💖 It was my first time ever trying manga/graphic novels.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:37 pm

      Curse has been so good so far! And omg, Orange. I seriously was so emotional while reading it, but in the BEST way. Just… wow. ♥ What a great intro to manga for you!!

    i finished if we were villains in the last days of 2018 and it was amazing! i hope you’ll love it as much as i did 🙂

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:38 pm

      Awesome! I feel so bad for my buddy read partner, Ellyn, because we were supposed to finish it today and I’m only 30 pages in. 😂 But I love it so far!

  • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches January 17, 2019 at 5:44 am

    WOULD YOU PLEASE FINISH A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY ALREADY.
    I’m, like, eagerly awaiting your opinion on that one and it’s driving me a bit insane. Q.Q

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:39 pm

      😂😂 I’m just so bad at reading this month! I’m still hoping to finish Curse by the end of my 3-day weekend, so hopefully I’ll have a review going up this week?

      • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches January 22, 2019 at 4:11 am

        I wish I could haunt you. Seriously. Here I am, waiting impatiently for the thing to arrive in my mailbox while you can read it and DON’T. [Sorry, the frustration is real on this one xD]

  • Reply Tiffany G. January 17, 2019 at 8:50 am

    It baffles me how much you read! I definitely wish I could read like you!!!

    How do you read so much at the same time?! I can just about keep track of one book lol I did finish two books this week though which is pretty good going for me!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:41 pm

      I dunno, the older I get, I think it’s just the best way for my ADHD to function as a reader? I have a really hard time sitting down and reading a big chunk of the same book in one sitting. I used to be able to just binge read one book at a time and I really miss that but I can’t focus that well anymore! And congrats <3

    I cannot wait for your thoughts on a curse so dark and lonely! 🙂

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:42 pm

      So far, so good! 😀 I’m really hoping to finish it and get a review posted in the next few days.
