Another week of planning and prepping for NaNoWriMo which is going really well, but also the week I finally broke my reading slump! I have been really struggling to get through books in the last few weeks and haven’t read more than a couple of pages up until this weekend when I finally managed to sit down and read. I am now making my way through my backlog of review books.
Its that time of the Week again! WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme that was revived by Taking on a World of Words. I like it cause it is fairly simple but allows me to check in with my reading but also with you!
WWW Wednesday asks just three questions:
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
WHAT BOOK HAVE YOU RECENTLY FINISHED?
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WILL READ NEXT?
Kingdom of the Wicked
One of the ARCs I fell behind on due to my reading slump this book came out on Tuesday. I am just a few chapters away from finishing it and should have my review up for it tomorrow. So far this book is ok. Its pacing is a little odd and there are real lull moments. However the descriptions of food are amazing and really have me craving home cooked Italian food!
Even if We Break
I am still in two minds about this book. It is the book that broke my reading slump so I enjoyed it enough to keep reading but I also found it lacking in a lot of ways. It is a really diverse read which is a huge positive but I can’t speak to how good that representation is and occasionally it did feel a little shoehorned in or just surface level while I was reading it. I have a full review discussing what kept me reading vs what left me disappointed here
The Burning God

I can’t wait any longer and I need to start this eARC even though I know it is going to stomp all over my heart. I am somewhat tempted to re-read the first two books over audio just so I can go straight into this one. I also never actually published my review of the Dragon Republic as it was mostly me rambling incoherently so I will be re-working that into something readable and publishing both around release date. I am really looking forward to seeing how this all plays out as I have really enjoyed this series so far.
So that is my WWW post for this week. I will see you next Wednesday to update you. What are you reading this week? Have you finished anything lately you loved?
