WWW & Wishlist Wednesday (20/08)

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!

 unbecoming1WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING? | At the moment, I am reading The Dead of Night by John Marsden. I would have finished it already, but I was too busy reading another book which I have now finished; so I can concentrate on TDON now!

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH? | Since last Wednesday, I finished two books; The Maze Runner by James Dashner, a reread, because the movie is coming out next month. I enjoyed it very much, just like the frist time! Can’t wait for the movie!

I also finished Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake, of which I will post a review tomorrow; but wow wow wow. I can tell you that I wasn’t really into it in the first half of the book, but after a while it just got exciting and nerve-wrecking (I was only thirty pages away from the end, and I started to feel so stressed!). But I liked it!

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT? | Hopefully, Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo will arrive this week, so I can start reading it immediately! Otherwise, I’ll probably start The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. I’ve had it on my shelf for a long time now, and I thought it might be a good idea to start reading it!

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.

foretold1Title: Foretold (Goodreads)
Series: Sisters of Fate #1
Author: Rinda Elliot
Release date: 1 April 2014

It is written that three Sisters of Fate have the power 
to change the world’s destiny. 
But only if they survive…

The Lockwood triplets have had the prophecy drummed into their heads since birth. Still, Raven, the eldest of the sisters, can’t believe it’s really happening. She’s the reincarnation of a Norse goddess? One of the sisters is destined to die? When it starts snowing in summer in Florida, the sisters fear the worst has come to pass. Ragnarok, the Norse end of the world, has begun.

Raven finds herself the secret protector of Vanir, a boy with two wolves, a knowledge of Norse magic and a sense of destiny he can’t quite explain. He’s intense, sexy and equally determined to save her when it becomes clear someone is endangering them. Raven doesn’t know if getting closer to him will make a difference in the coming battle, but her heart isn’t giving her a choice.

Ahead of the sisters is the possibility of death at the hand of a warrior, death by snow, death by water or death by fire.

Or even from something else…

Sisters of Fate
The prophecy doesn’t lie: one is doomed to die. 

You all might know how much I love Norse Mythology, and how often I complain (or well, not really complaining but just… mentioning) that there aren’t a lot of fictional books about this specific mythology. Sure there are a lot of books about Greek and perhaps Roman mythology, but I haven’t seen a lot of Norse Myth books. Until recently. Someone posted something about this book series that was about the Norse Mythology, and I immediately got excited! So I am going to get myself copies of this entire series as soon as possible!
