#WWW Wednesday – 20 April, 2016

First of all, how is it April 20 already?! I mean, really.

Second, it is Wednesday, and that means WWW Wednesday! Yaaaay! WWW Wednesday is a blog hop in which we answer questions about what we’ve been reading this past week. This is hosted by Sam over at A World of Words. You can join in by commenting on today’s post over on her blog.

  • What are you currently reading?

Currently reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. Blue and Gansey are quite likely to be the death of me. I’ve got way more invested in them and their non-relationship than I ever expected.

  • What did you recently finish reading?

I finished A Stolen Kiss by Kelsey Keating. It was cute, but nothing mind-blowing, and read quite young given the characters were supposed to be in their late teens. My review is here.

After that I read The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, which is the second book in the Raven Cycle, and the one before Blue Lily, Lily Blue. It made me conclude that I was simply not in the right mood for The Raven Boys when I read it over Christmas. I didn’t really have the opportunity to absorb the writing properly. Funnily enough, even though Ronan is the focal character in this book, the majority of my favourite moments in it did not involve him. I will try not to gush too much here; my review is going up either Friday or Monday, depending when I have time to finish writing it.

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

I want to read the Edge of Darkness by K. L. Schwengel, which is the last book in her Darkness & Light trilogy.

I also plan on reading The Raven King, the fourth Raven Cycle book, when it comes out next week. I hadn’t actually deliberately started reading the other books just in time for this one’s release, but the timing was fortuitous. I knew it was coming out at the end of April, but in my head, the end of April was still months away. I am currently torn between not wanting to Gansey to die because I’ve gotten attached to him, and feeling like after three books of set-up, it would feel like a cop-out if they find a way around him dying.

Funny story before I go: a couple of days ago I discovered that the author of Greythorne, a book I’ve had on my TBR since November last year, is the wife of a guy I met last year when I was in My Fair Lady. I had no idea that this book was even Australian, let alone that I had played board games at the author’s house just a few weeks ago. So I’m probably going to bump that one a bit further up my TBR, but it’ll probably be a May read at this point.

I should probably get a move on because I need to do a decent chunk of uni work tonight, so I’ll catch you all later!

    Don’t. It won’t be long until my mum starts saying, “Not long til Christmas”!!! 🙂
    I am completely torn on the Gansey issue too. I’m just hoping there’s a way he can die (after all, Blue’s seen his ghost, she can’t get out of that one) and then they can bring him back (they can ask the King for anything, right?). We’ll see!

    Oh The Dream Thieves; I have been wanting to continue The Raven Cycle for ages! So many unfinished series and so little time… Good to hear you are enjoying them though! 🙂

      Haha, I know what you mean! I actually had to look up The Raven Boys on wikipedia and read the synopsis because I’d forgotten most of what happened, so it’s probably a good thing that I’ll be reading the rest in quick succession.

        I think I read The Raven Boys back in December, but I will probably have to reread at least the review as well… I’m definitely going to try and get a copy of the fourth book and read the sequels together.
