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?

  1. Darkfever — 23%
  2. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone — REREAD — 35%
  3. A Curse So Dark and Lonely — 8%
  4. The Last Olympian — 56%
  5. If We Were Villains — 8%

    1. 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??

      1. 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.

      1. 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!

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

    1. 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 ?

    1. 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.

        1. 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]

    1. 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!

      1. 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

Say hello! ♥
