WWW & Wishlist Wednesday (13/08)

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme organized by MizB from Should Be Reading. It has you answering the following three questions: What are you currently reading; What did you recently finish and What do you think you’ll read next? To see my previous WWW Wednesday posts, just click this link and it’ll take you to the right page!

girlnightmares1WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING? | At the moment, I am re-reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner. I was actually planning on re-reading it a bit closer to the movie release, but then I just decided to go for it. Like the first time, I got past the first couple of chapters with difficulty, but I still enjoy it as much as I did the first time I read it.

I have also started Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake. I wasn’t a huge fan of the first book, Anna Dressed in Blood, but I just wanted to know what was going to happen in the second book, so I ordered it and it sat on my shelf for quite a while. Until today, because I just decided I wanted to read it. Or well, I actually decided this last night, which was probably not such a good idea.

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH? | I finished Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, which I both liked and disliked. I read the book because of the movie coming out soon (September? October? I don’t know), but I think I wouldn’t have minded if I only saw the movie. My review can be found here. And I read the short story The Tailor by Leigh Bardugo. It’s a story about Genya, in the Grisha trilogy, which I liked because I really liked Genya as a character. I liked this short story so much, I gave it four stars, which I normally don’t do with short stories (usually 3 stars, unless they’re really bad).

I also started and finished Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden. I had ordered an English copy of the book and decided to re-read the entire series when it arrived. I only still need to get the last five books in the series, but I am working on that.

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT? | Hopefully, I’ll be able to read Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo next. I am going to order it as soon as I got my salary and I will definitely start reading it as soon as it arrives. I don’t care which book I am reading at that point, when it arrives, I will start reading it. And I want to re-read The Dead of Night by John Marsden, the second book in the Tomorrow series.

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Pen to Paper, where I’ll post about one book per week that has been on my wishlist for some time, or just added, that I can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto my shelves.

killingfrostTitle: A Killing Frost (Goodreads)
Series: Tomorrow #3
Author: John Marsden
Release date: 1995

Life in the war zone enters its sixth month of heart-stopping tension in the latest installment of the internationally bestselling Tomorrow series.

In the third installment of the Tomorrow saga, the anything-to-survive existence of Ellie and her friends has sharpened their senses and emboldened their plans. They aren’t merely on the defensive anymore; they’re also striking back. Their strategy? Attack the enemy not just on land, but also on water. If they have any hope of sabotaging the formidable container ship at Cobbler’s Bay, then stealth is a must, but so, too, is one very big explosion.
And if they fail, they may face a whole new kind of terror — imprisonment.

Two years ago, I found my copy of Tomorrow When the War Began and started reading it. I then decided to look it up on Goodreads, and found out there was an entire series! I could read more about these awesome Australian teenagers who are fighting for their country. I got all seven books in English as ebooks and started reading them, and I fell in love more and more. So naturally, I had to own physical copies of the books. Right now, I own the first two books, and the third is in my shopping basket at the Book Depository. Not sure if I’m going to order it with Ruin & Rising, but I probably will.
