Hello! It’s late, and today has been a crazy day, so I’m going to go straight into my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words, and how it works is each week I answer three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading The Only Road, by Alexandra Diaz and The School for Good and Evil, by Soman Chainani. The School for Good and Evil is a really interesting book. When I read it for the first time, I loved it. I had the reaction of ‘that’s the best book I’ve read!’ I rated it 5 stars and could find no flaws. Now, my opinion has very much changed. After reading it quite a few times, there are a few little things that stick out to me, bother me, and make me like the book a little less. I think that this is maybe the third time I’ve read The Only Road, and I really like it. I reviewed it a while ago, but it’s a much shorter and less complete review, mostly made up of a summary, but it does show my opinions though!
What did you recently finish reading?
I recently finished reading Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus, by Dusti Bowling and The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill. I really love Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus, and I think that The Girl Who Drank the Moon is an incredible book, and that every one of you should go read it right now. I’m not kidding. It has magic, investigates what magic really is, and has a girl named Luna, a witch named Xan, a swamp monster named Glerk and a really sweet dragon named Fyrian, to name a few. So if your like fantasy, if you like adventure, if you’ve ever considered picking up a book to read, this books for you. And because this isn’t supposed to be my review of The Girl Who Drank the Moon, (although I want to have a review coming relatively soon), I’ll move on now. I guess. I will.
If you want to see all the books I’ve read so far this year, check out my Goodreads, where I (mostly) keep up with all the books I read.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Next, I’m going to continue to rerereread the OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books, a reading competition comprehension thing that I’m doing) books, and I think more specifically I’ll reread The Novice, by Taran Matharu, The First Rule of Punk, by Celia C. Perez and It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel, by Firoozeh Dumas!
