What did you recently finish reading?

I completed two trilogies this week! I am beyond happy about that.

Frost Like Night
by Sarah Raasch

I was so ready for this to be over, I found the characters to be so annoying and there were spots where obvious answers were just staring them in the face and they refused to acknowledge it. Super frustrating to deal with.

In the Afterlight
by Alexandra Bracken

Not a bad ending to the trilogy, everything wrapped up nicely, what frustrated me a lot was the arrogance that Ruby and Cole held themselves in. Like they were the only ones ever capable of doing anything. They had massive control issues that were acknowledged by other characters but never dealt with, that was a tad annoying to see.

The Two Towers
by J.R.R Tolkien

I think I’m going to take a break from this for a while, my reading is starting to slow down and I find myself trying to push through the story a little, which doesn’t make sense because I am loving reading this, it’s just so dense. I’m currently 1/3 of the way through and my goal is to get to the halfway point and then take a break.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Since I have a feeling that Two Towers may put me in a bit of slump, I want to get to some recent releases that I’ve been excited to get my hands on.

Catwoman Soulstealer

Two Dark Reigns

WWW Wednesday 9/12 but on Thursday

WWW Wednesdays

I don’t know why I’m a day late with this. It’s not one of those instances where I thought I was a day off. I knew yesterday was Wednesday, it’s just that Wednesday and blog post was not lining up in my head at all.

On a separate note, Middle Earth is consuming my soul! I have been reading the books, playing Shadow of War on Xbox, and watching the movies!

That is a lot of Middle Earth! I can’t get enough right now and I don’t want to stop.

City of Ghosts
by Victoria Schwab

This was so fun! I loved the Edinburgh setting, Cassidy as a character was one of my faves, maybe I’m biased…I loved the photography and Schwab went into how the film is developed.

The Fellowship of the Ring
by J.R.R. Tolkien

I am so happy that I finally read this! This read has been a long time coming, I have owned copies of these books for years. In fact, I own multiple copies; I have these editions pictured, I own a set that’s a bit more vintage looking that I love, and I own an e-copy. It was high time that I read this, and I did, and I loved it.

All The Light We Cannot See
by Anothny Doerr

I’m happy I finally read this, the writing was beautiful and I loved how the stories wove together. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator did a fantastic job. I did leave the book feeling a little anti-climatic.

The Two Towers
by J.R.R Tolkien

Continuing on. Like I said, consuming my soul!

Frost like Night
by Sarah Raasch

I am currently listening to this on audio and I can’t wait for it to be over. These characters are just so frustrating!


What do you think you’ll read next?

Return of the King
by J.R.R. Tolkien

What am I going to do after I finish this? That’s going to be sad for me.

In The Afterlight
by Alexandra Bracken

My next audiobook after Frost Like Night. Excited to finally finish the original trilogy so I can catch up to the Darkest Legacy

Catwoman Soulstealer
by Sarah J Maas

I’m surprised I haven’t read this yet but the timing never felt right.


Thanks for reading this day late WWW Wednesday.

WWW Wednesday 9/5

WWW Wednesdays

I think Mistborn put me into a bit of a reading slump. That always sucks. I’m also feeling really overwhelmed by the number of things that I want to read, so this is a really weird slump. I want to read everything but nothing is quite working for me.

From Twinkle With Love
by Sandhya Menon

This was so fun and fast paced. I just wish there had been more detail about the filming process and also some more of some the side characters.

Van Life
by Sarah Leamy

This was a very interesting read and I really enjoyed it. I have a post coming soon where I’ll talk about the subject of van life more and talk a bit more about this book then.

This Adventure Ends
by Emma Mills

I wasnt a big fan of Emma Mill’s first book First and Then, but I really enjoyed this one. I loved the search for the painting and to see the main character really learn to open up to everyone around her.

Heartless
by Marissa Meyer

I am so heartbroken because of this book! It was one of those times where you know its coming, you know that this character is not allowed to be happy at all, I was in this higher state of anxiety caught between reading as fast as I could because I need to know what happens next and yet I don’t want to arrive at the sad part.

What I Thought Was True
by Huntley Fitzpatrick

I was really bored throughout this story. There wasn’t much to keep you hooked and there was a long time setting up rich vs poor setting, which is ridiculous since its such a common and well known theme.

What Happened to Goodbye
by Sarah Dessen

Again I was a little bored through this, it was another instance where I enjoyed the side characters more then the main characters.

Wanderlost
by Jen Malone

You would think reading about someone touring Europe and seeing all these amazing sights would be fun and interesting, but the main character is so mopey ABOUT BEING IN EUROPE, like what? I would love being this tour guide Aubree you ungrateful thing! Also theres a lot of details and Aubrees thoughts that are really slow down the story

Ice Like Fire
by Sarah Raasch

I ended up liking this a bit more than I thought I would. I enjoyed the traveling to the other kingdoms and seeing their cultures, I do love that all of them have a theme. I also really enjoy the way Meera is learning political diplomacy and in a way is teaching the reader how to read between the lines. That said, a lot of the story dragged at many points. All of the characters were very dislikable, but their grief and PTSD were portrayed really well.

The Inexplicable Logic of My Life
by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

This was a great coming of age story that deals wonderfully with grief and picking yourself back up when you feel crushed and lost from the death of a loved one.

Dreamland
by Sarah Dessen

I have conflicting thoughts on this, on one hand, the topic of domestic abuse is very important for everyone to read about and to see how it affects everyone, how people get sucked into them, the way it affects mental health, and how people are afraid to leave. The only thing I didn’t like about this was most of the characters didn’t feel real to me, like Rina and her boyfriends didn’t feel like real people. I also wish that this had been a dual POV between Caitlyn and Cassandra. I would have really liked to see something from Cass.

The Queen of the Tearling 
by Erika Johansen

I am so glad that I finally read this, there was just something about picking it up this time, that just felt like the right time. I believe the last time I read it, I only read to page 85 or something like that and before that to page 50. I was not a fan of the beginning and how perfect the main character is and I’m still bothered by her because of that. Once I got used to the time period it was a little easier, and Kelsea’s passion and care for her people very quickly won me other. I’ve heard amazing things about book 2 so I am going to be reading that sometime soon.

What I Thought Was True
by Huntley Fitzpatrick 

I am reading this so much more slowly then I thought that I would. She’s taken a long time and a lot of pages to set up and emphasize rich vs poor and separation of classes when that is a trope that we are all so familiar that it doesn’t need much set up. There’s also a lot of references and talk about Gwen’s past but instead of building intrigue, its almost weighing me down and kind of making me stall, but I’m almost halfway through so I will be finishing.

What Happened to Goodbye
by Sarah Dessen

My last Sarah Dessen book!

Mistborn
I will be finishing this over the weekend. I am bound and determined to.
