WWW #2: December 05, 2018

December 5, 2018

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?

www2cr.jpgMy 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!

  1. The Faithful — 46%
  2. Kingdom of Ash — 13%
  3. The Shadow of What Was Lost — 10%
  4. Dear Heartbreak — 8%
  5. Hark! The Herald Angels Scream — 40%
  6. The Truth About Forever — 16%
  7. NOS4A2 — 4%
  8. 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!
I finished:

  1. The Language of Thorns ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  2. The Sorrows ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  3. Kingdom of Needle and Bone ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  4. The Battle of the Labyrinth ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  5. Goth ⭐⭐⭐
  6. The Gilded Wolves ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  7. Merry Inkmas ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  8. The Lights ⭐⭐⭐⭐

www2rn.jpgI 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:

  1. Vengeful
  2. Snow in Love
  3. The Scorpio Races
  4. Children of the Dark

Have you read any of the titles I mentioned in this post, or are any on your TBR? Let me know in the comments!

    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 ).

      • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches December 6, 2018 at 4:16 am

        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

        • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 6, 2018 at 11:40 pm

          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.

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches December 7, 2018 at 2:34 am

            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.

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 8, 2018 at 12:03 am

            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. :’)

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches December 10, 2018 at 2:56 am

            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. :’)

  • Reply Sofia @ BookishWanderess December 5, 2018 at 9:25 am

    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! ?

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 6, 2018 at 1:11 am

      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!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 6, 2018 at 1:11 am

      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!

  • Reply thecritiquesofafangirl December 5, 2018 at 9:56 am

    Wow, you read 8 books within a week, that’s amazing

  • Reply mistysbookspace December 5, 2018 at 10:12 am

    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.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 6, 2018 at 1:11 am

      I’m glad you’re enjoying it!! I love Talia’s writing so much and never get tired of it!

      • Reply mistysbookspace December 6, 2018 at 7:49 am

        I finished it last night and it was so good. I’ve never read anything by her before.

  • Reply fictionnochaser December 5, 2018 at 10:21 am

    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.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 6, 2018 at 1:12 am

      Awesome haha! Merry Inkmas is amazing, as is everything else I’ve read by Talia. 🙂 Oooh, I bet! Happy reading and safe travels!

  • Reply noreadstoogreat December 5, 2018 at 10:22 am

    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/

    Girl your reading is epic 🙂 I can’t wait to read your review on The Gilded Wolves!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 6, 2018 at 1:13 am

      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!

  • Reply Mandy R December 5, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    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.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 6, 2018 at 1:14 am

      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! 🙂

  • Reply Ellyn December 5, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    Hark! The Herald Angels Scream looks so good, are you enjoying it so far?

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 6, 2018 at 1:14 am

      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.

      • Reply Ellyn December 6, 2018 at 8:43 pm

        I think I’ll definitey have to pick it up Next Christmas, it sounds so good!
