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?
I finished White Night by Ellie Marney and totally loved it (I am two for two with 5 star reads from this author now). I used to say “Oh, I don’t read much contemporary YA” but I realised I actually read a lot of it, and this one gave such a good sense of growing up in a country town and trying to work out your place in life as you finish school and it was also so Australian. Review will be up Friday.
I only ended up reading maybe six of the stories in Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy edited by Amerie. It wasn’t really doing it for me.
I also posted two reviews this week: Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel and Blackwing by Ed McDonald.
What are you currently reading?
I finally put Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel onto my phone this morning, so I’m actually starting to get into it properly. Vincent is definitely my favourite character of this series, giving me all the feels. I am a bit annoyed that they appear to have changed some of the voice actors, though? Eva now just has an American accent, where she had a Puerto Rican one in Book 2. I could understand her losing her accent in the time between the events of the two books, but there are flashbacks, dammit!
I have also started Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend today and I’m only 57 pages in but if it stays this delightful the whole way through, then the hype is totally justified. The cover describes it as Harry Potter meets Alice in Wonderland and it basically is that. It’s not nonsensical like Alice in Wonderland but it is whimsical. Also there’s a character I suspect is based at least in part on David Tennant’s Doctor.
What do you think you will read next?
It was going to be Terra Nullius by Claire G. Coleman, but after Nevermoor, I don’t know if I’ll be in quite the right mood for hard-hitting dystopia. I picked up Caraval by Stephanie Garber from the library this morning, and I might read it instead. It has mixed reviews among my GoodReads friends but I am still in a circus mood so hopefully that will help.
What are you reading this week? 🙂
P.S. If you’re interested, head on over to my writing blog to read an excerpt from my current WIP.

Vincent was my favorite character also – loved his snark. Hope you enjoy the last book in the series! https://teripolen.com/2018/09/12/www-wednesday-what-am-i-reading-amreading-14/
Can’t wait to read your review of “White Night”. If I was in denial regarding my love of YA (and I was), “The Hate U Give” changed all that for me last year. Here is my WWW post if interested: https://greatmorrisonmigration.wordpress.com/2018/09/12/www-wednesdays-september-12-2018/
White Knight looks tempting. Enjoy your week, and here’s MY WWW POST
I listened to Caraval and ended up enjoying it. It wasn’t a 5 star, but it did make me want to read the next book. Good luck with it!
I’m really curious about White Night now! And I have been meaning to read Caraval for ages now. I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading!
I keep hearing about Nevermoor! I want to read it now 🙂
I liked Caraval but didn’t love it. It is worth reading in my opinion just so you can read sequel Legendary (I loved Legendary).
Sorry you didn’t finish Because You Love to Hate Me but at least it sounds like it got you out of your slump.
Yeah, I’m back and forth on reading Caraval. I started out listening to it on audio and could not seem to follow the story, so, I got it in physical form! Hopefully, actually reading it will help! Happy reading!
