#WWW Wednesday – 14 June 2017

It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This blog hop is hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for this week, and just answer the three questions.

Sorry I wasn’t around last week! Life was too crazy for blogging, and I had barely been reading anyway. Life is back to normal now, though, so I should be around regularly for a while.

What have you recently finished reading?

I finished Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder, which I felt was about on par with the first book in the series. My review will go up on Friday.

Before that, I finished reading The Dalai Lama’s Cat by David Michie and reviewed it here. It was very cute and I recommend it.

Last but not least, I read The Betrayal of Bindy MacKenzie by Jaclyn Moriarty. This is the 4th book by her that I have read this year and it was a strange one… Bindy Mackenzie read like a Jane Austen heroine, but the book is a YA Contemporary… so it took some getting used to but in the end, I was hooked enough to see it through. It was still weird, though.

What are you currently reading?

Dracula by Bram Stoker and Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice on audio  are still ongoing. I have knocked off another couple of hours of Interview, but haven’t had an opportunity to continue with Dracula.

While I was sure that I had until December to read it, it turns out that Ensnared by Rita Stradling was published at the end of May, so I have started my ARC today. It’s a futuristic Beauty and the Beast retelling so I have high hopes, though the reviews are mixed.

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

I will probably start Fire Study, the third book in the Study series by Maria V. Snyder. General consensus seems to be that the quality goes down as the series goes on, so we’ll see how it goes.

What are you reading this week? 🙂

    I have had my ARC dates mixed up in the past. Read books too early or way past publication date. However, May isn’t late and as someone once told me, what counts is the review in the end. I hope that you will enjoy Ensnared and all your other books. Happy reading.

      No, I guess I’m not doing too badly with that one. I should have it reviewed by next week, so that’s all right. And what you say is true, the review is the important thing.

      I’ve found the world-building and magic system really cool, though the characters aren’t my most favuorite. The first two books have both been 3.5*s for me. I don’t feel especially compelled to pull the next one down, though. It’s more because I’ve got it on my June TBR and want to tick it off.

      She is, though as far as I can tell, her books are fairly differet to Liane’s. Bindy MacKenzie was a bit strange; I think I would recommend the Colours of Madeleine series first.

    Good to hear the Study books are good so far! It’s a series I’ve had on my radar for a while now… Enjoy your books this week and happy reading!
