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:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
My goal for this week was to get down to 5 current reads. While I didn’t manage that, I definitely lowered my number from last week’s post!
- The Faithful — 46%
- Kingdom of Ash — 13%
- The Shadow of What Was Lost — 10%
- Dear Heartbreak — 8%
- Hark! The Herald Angels Scream — 40%
- The Truth About Forever — 16%
- NOS4A2 — 4%
- Kin — 18%
My “big” goal for this upcoming week is to finish almost everything but NOS4A2. Ambitious, I know! 😛 My slightly more “realistic” goal is to finish The Faithful, Dear Heartbreak, Hark! The Herald Angels Scream, The Truth About Forever, and Kin.
Even if I didn’t get as many of my pre-existing reads completed as I’d hoped to, I’m REALLY proud of my reading progress over the last week!
- The Language of Thorns ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Sorrows ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Kingdom of Needle and Bone ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Battle of the Labyrinth ⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Goth ⭐⭐⭐
- The Gilded Wolves ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Merry Inkmas ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Lights ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I have a few buddy and/or group reads I’m about to start (or running behind on…oops).
I also have another two books I’d like to start this week so I can finish them in time to count them for my fall TBR catch-up:
- Snow in Love
- The Scorpio Races
- Children of the Dark
Some people think my “Finished reads” are insane, but they’re in for a surprise should they venture on your blog, haha!
Even though you haven’t finished as many of your current reads as you wanted, you definitely read a whole lot so yay to that! Now on to actually tackling those current reads instead of adding to them and you’re good. 😛
*Eagerly awaiting a Merry Inkmas review*
Haha! I told you I was proud of myself this week! 😀 😀 I still gotta look at yours, I’ve done zero blog hopping so far this week and my inbox for blog updates has 95 unread posts just from this week that I’m holding on to so I can prioritize them while blog hopping (hopefully tomorrow :’D ).
You should be!
Haha, I feel like I’m not following nearly as many blogs as I should? I don’t know. It’s like I’m way too picky about what blogs to follow or something. Not to mention all the blogs that’ve died a slow death these past couple of months. :’)
I should actually blog hop outside of the blogs I follow for once but I always feel like I get lost in the enormity of the book community if I do? xD
Oof, yeah, quite a few of the blogs I follow have died lately, too. 🙁 I’m always so hesitant to unfollow dead blogs because sometimes it’s people who have gone on very long hiatuses and I know they *might* never come back, but if they do, I want to know? Sigh. 😛 But I’m on the opposite end of the spectrum, I am following waaaaay too much ? I think I’m about to clean out my subs again. I usually do a deep-cleaning once every 6 months or so.
Well, when it comes to hiatuses I always check if they actually announced one – if on the blog or on their social media. If they have, they can stick around in my followed blogs but.. If they’ve simply disappeared? I’m pretty tempted to unfollow them. :’)
I unfollowed some blogs a couple of weeks ago that I started following when I just started out and I just don’t.. feel those blogs anymore, haha. It’s a weird thing to do because I once loved them and now it seems like I’ve outgrown them? SO WEIRD.
It is a super weird feeling to feel like you’ve outgrown a blog, but I 100% know what you mean. While I don’t feel that way about too many blogs, I definitely feel that way about a LOT of booktubers. I follow almost no channels that I started out following. :’)
I’m not that big on booktube anyway, haha. The only one I sometimes check out is Book Roast and that’s more for the magical readathons than anything else really. :’)
Your last WWW post and this one have shocked me because I’m terrible at reading multiple books at the same time and I don’t know how you manage. It’s amazing and I wish I could do it!
I’m glad you enjoyed Kingdom of Needle and Bone! I can’t wait to read another Mira Grant book,since I loved Into the Dorwning Deep, which I read recently. Good luck with all your goals! ?
Haha thank you! I really do want to prioritize reading fewer books at a time because even though I’m able to do it without losing track of what I’m reading, it makes me take a much longer time to finish some of my reads and it also makes me much more likely to DNF books for some reason! I’m not sure why, but I’ve noticed a trend and I want to stop, lol!
It was soooo good! I still need to read Drowning Deep. Thank you!
Always amaze of how many books you can read at one time Destiny!! Wow 5 star for The Gilded Wolves, can’t wait to read it!
Thank you love! The Gilded Wolves was really fun and the cast of characters made it for me, it’s very character-driven and they are all so lovable!
Wow, you read 8 books within a week, that’s amazing
I am currently reading Merry Inkmas and I’m loving it. I’m almost halfway through it and I only started it last night. I will most likely be finishing it today.
I’m glad you’re enjoying it!! I love Talia’s writing so much and never get tired of it!
I finished it last night and it was so good. I’ve never read anything by her before.
This is the second time I have seen a great review for Merry Inkmas… now my December pile is growing more!
Awesome goals though. I had to cut down on my simultaneous reads because I’m traveling and books are heavy lol.
Awesome haha! Merry Inkmas is amazing, as is everything else I’ve read by Talia. 🙂 Oooh, I bet! Happy reading and safe travels!
Ah what an amazing collection of books! I really want to get my hands on a copy of Language of Thorns, I am dying to read it. Here’s my post! https://noreadstoogreat.wordpress.com/2018/12/05/www-wednesday-december-2018/
Thank you! The Language of Thorns was AMAZING. I hope you get a chance to pick it up soon!
you read so much it astounds me
Thank you thank youuuuu ♥
Your reading always impresses me! Enjoy this week’s reads!
Thank you, love! ♥ You’re so sweet! Happy reading! 😀
Girl your reading is epic 🙂 I can’t wait to read your review on The Gilded Wolves!
Haha thank you!! 😀 I hope to get it posted before the week is out but I seem to be in a bit of a review block right now – what a pain!
I enjoyed the Scorpio Races. I thought it was something different. I also just bought Merry Inkmas. I may have to read that one soon.
I usually only have 3 books going at once (audiobook, print, and ebook). I don’t think I could manage any more than that. That’s amazing.
I ended up picking up the audiobook for Scorpio Races today and am really enjoying it so far! It’s such an intriguing story and Maggie’s writing style is as gorgeous as ever. I hope you get the chance to read Merry Inkmas soon, it’s a very quick read and so precious and perfect for the season! 🙂
Hark! The Herald Angels Scream looks so good, are you enjoying it so far?
It has been a BLAST so far! Some of the stories have been super creepy while others have been weirdly hilarious? I honestly will be shocked if I don’t give it at least 4 stars by the time it’s over.
I think I’ll definitey have to pick it up Next Christmas, it sounds so good!
I just finished Wicked Saints yesterday, and I think I’m going to read Language of Thorns and Vengeful sometime this month!
Nice, enjoy them both!! I can’t wait to read Wicked Saints 😀
Awesome post! I really want to read the Gilded Wolves!
Thank you! It was so good. I’m hoping to post a review tomorrow or one day next week!
good luck with all your reading! i’m so looking forward to the gilded wolves and the new mira grant so i’m glad to see you loved them
Thank youuuu! OMG I seriously need to write that TGW review lmao.
no pressure,, but like pls do lol! i need to know your thoughts. it sounds so up my alley
