WWW & Wishlist Wednesday (08/10)
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!
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING? | At the moment, I am re-reading Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. I am going to buy the last book in the series soon and I want to refresh my memories by rereading the first three books. I am very excited, because I really love this series!
I am also going to start The Elite by Kiera Cass tonight; I just finished reading the Selection and it ended a bit with a cliff-hanger, or an open ending at least, and I really want to know how the story goes on even though I wasn’t really impressed by the Selection.
WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH? | I finished re-reading Cress by Marissa Meyer, and I am just really excited for Fairest coming out in January. And Winter in November next year (so far away *sigh*). I also finished Virgin River, which I didn’t enjoy very much. I’ll post my review on the 11th of this month. And I read another Grimm Diaries Prequel, number six; Blood Apples which I found as strange as the previous five. I am not sure why I am still reading these prequels, maybe just because I am waiting for that one prequel that is amazing.
And I started and finished the Selection by Kiera Cass. I bought the entire series as ebooks because it was cheaper, but I didn’t really enjoy it a lot. It felt very Hunger Games-y to me, and I was annoyed by the main character sometimes. I’ll write my review as soon as I can, and post it on my blog!
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT? | After I finish the Elite, I’m most likely going to read the One by Kiera Cass, and perhaps the novella’s she’s written for this series as well. I am also looking forward to reading The Body Electric by Beth Revis, I loved her Across the Universe series so much!
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.
Title: Snow Like Ashes (Goodreads)
Series: Snow Like Ashes #1
Author: Sara Raasch
Release date: 14 October 2014
A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.
Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.
Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.
So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.
I’ve heard a lot about this series lately, and a lot of people loved it, so I am very curious. Someone already called it the next ‘Throne of Glass’ which made me really excited because I LOVE Throne of Glass! I hope to get my hands on this book soon so I can devour it!
