#WWW Wednesday – November 22, 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.

What have you recently finished reading?

This week I finished Nyxia by Scott Reintgen and I really enjoyed it. Some of the world-building annoyed me, but the characters and decent writing made up for it. I think that’s a series I will continue to follow. I posted a review here.

What are you currently reading?

I started reading Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine last night, and I am now at work feeling tired because I stayed up past my bedtime. I’m about a third of the way through it at the moment and I’m really enjoying the themes it’s bringing up about trying to stay on the down-low in the age of social media and how being on the run can affect a family.

I’m also reading Not Your Villain by C. B. Lee but I’m not really into it. A lot of the reviews do say it starts off slow because it covers the events of the previous book from another character’s POV, but that it picks up once it gets into its own story. I want to signal boost this series because of the diversity, but while I read an entire third of Stillhouse Lake last night, it’s taken me a week to read a quarter of this one. :\

What do you think you’ll read next?

 I’m not sure yet. Maybe another thriller? The Game You Played by Anni Taylor is on my until-the-end-of-the-year TBR along with Stillhouse Lake. I haven’t read many books from that list in November, so if I can power through a few easy and/or gripping ones before the end of the month, I’ll be pleased.

What are you reading this week?

    Stillhouse Lake took me by surprise with just how good and how addictive it is. Glad you’re enjoying it as much. It’s worth losing sleep over.

    I was kind of mixed on Nyxia too. Liked the concept and diversity but just too long spent training, not enough science and a little too similar to other books.

      I got to the point last night where I knew I wouldn’t sleep if I didn’t finish it, so I figured losing sleep again to finish it would be the better option. It was definitely addictive!

      Yeah, it was very similar to other stuff when I thought about it. The other thing, and I realise I completely forgot to mention it in the review, was how convenient the Nyxia was. It literally does anything you need it to. And if a small amount can be manipulated in such amazing ways, why do they actually need large amounts of it?

      That’s fair, I often end up having to have periods where I prioritise review books. It definitely was an addictive one, though!
