Book Blast

Happy hump day! With today arrives the weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words, WWW Wednesday! The meme has a simple format, asking the three W’s:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently

Today I started reading the second installment of Cameron Jace’s Insanity series, Figment. Thus far I’ve only read a few pages and I’m hopeful I’ll love it as much as I did the first in the series, Insanity.

In addition, I’m listening to Caraval by Stephanie Garber on Audible. I’m an hour or so into the book, and it’s just okay so far – I’m still waiting for excitement. I’ve seen mixed reviews of this one, with some citing offensive topics and others absolutely loving it. I wanted to read Caraval before the controversy, but it definitely made me curious enough to go ahead and pick it up!

Just Finished

This morning I finished my first ever book by Kasie West, The Fill-In Boyfriend. I absolutely LOVED this book and gave it a five-star rating on Goodreads! I’m so excited to write the review – so many emotions were stirred within me as I read – and that doesn’t happen to me often.

Long story short – I cannot wait to read the rest of West’s work. The Fill-In Boyfriend is a book I typically wouldn’t just pick up, but I was haunted by it and kept seeing rave reviews. I’m so tickled with myself for branching out of my genre comfort zone and discovering a new favorite author!

The other day, I finally finished The Throne of Fire, the second in Rick Riordan’s Kane Chronicles series. I took nearly three weeks to read it – I apparently had a hard time finding freedom to read, as I really enjoyed this tale and could’ve finished it quicker.

Next

I have a bunch of galleys I need to get through and write up reviews for before they’re archived. Luckily, I’m looking forward to testing out the books for which I’ve been approved. I still can’t get over the fact that I was auto-approved by Udon Entertainment, which produces Manga Classics! 😀

That’s it for me this week! How about you?

Love, Maggie

    Sounds like your TBR list is as large as mine ha. I don’t typically pick up ARCs as I don’t have an ereader. While Ic an use my phone, I prefer a bigger screen, and I’m just not on my computer enough to read books. Unless it’s a kindle file, but I have had nothing but issues with obtaining ARCs in kindle format. They either don’t work, or they are misformated and it annoys me lol

    Sorry for the long speal. Your future picks look fun!!

      LOL! My TBR list is literally endless! I shockingly got approved for a bunch of ARCs and I kind of feel pressure to knock them out! Like you, I prefer a bigger screen and read a lot on my computer and my Kindle. Thanks so much for stopping by! 😀

    I am really looking forward to A Crown of Wishes but I have to wait for the release date!! Hope you enjoy it!

    I’m such a stickler for only reading certain books. I have to force myself to read something different, and I’m usually suprised by how good they are! I’ve got a copy of Caraval but I haven’t read it yet. I didn’t realise that it had mixed reviews but I’ve seen a few WWW posts that have said similar things. I hope it picks up for you!

      Me too! I always wonder why I didn’t give a book I’ve been staying away from a try sooner! LOL! Thank you, hopefully, Caraval will get exciting soon! 😀
