WWW & Waiting On Wednesday (19/11)

It’s Wednesday 19 November, the day Mockingjay part one is released in my country. The day my favourite bass-player celebrates his twenty-first birthday, and of course time for another WWW and Wishing On Wednesday post! WWW Wednesday is a weekly bloghop organised by MizB from Should Be Reading, and it has you answering three simple questions: What are you reading right now, What did you recently finish, and What do you think you’ll read next? You can click here to see all the previous posts in this bloghop!

infinitesea1What are you currently reading? At the moment, I am reading The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey; I started it a couple of days ago but I was a slightly bit confused by all the names, because it’s been a while since I’ve read The 5th Wave. But I remembered not long after that and now I am just enjoying the book, even though I am still a slightly bit annoyed at the changing POV’s and all the flashbacks.

I am also re-reading Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, which I decided to do before the movie came out. I stopped around halfway through the book at a spot where I thought the first movie would end, and I was almost right (no spoilers though). I will finish the rest of the book as well, just because I can’t stand not finishing it now, and I’ll write a review of the movie asap!

What did you recently finish? I finished Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas which was asdhaskdlhawioehiowegroahsoidwe. I just loved the last couple of chapters, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the fourth book, though that might take a while… *sad face*. I posted my review here, by the way.

I also started and finished another Grimm Diary Prequel story by Cameron Jace, titled Rumpelstein. Unfortunately, it was just as ‘good’ as the previous stories, the only one I liked a bit better was Moon and Madly but that’s about it. I am still going to finish this series because I am just curious.

What do you think you’ll read next? When I’m finished with Mockingjay, I’ll re-read The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien because I am going to a Hobbit Marathon on 9 December, and I just really want to re-read the book. Then, I think I’ll start Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly bloghop organised by Jill of Breaking the Spine and it has you talking about books that you are excited for that haven’t been released yet (or just books that you really want to read but haven’t bought yet).

thecageTitle: The Cage (Goodreads)
Series:
Author: Megan Shepherd
Released date: 26 May 2015

When Cora Mason wakes in a desert, she doesn’t know where she is or who put her there. As she explores, she finds an impossible mix of environments–tundra next to desert, farm next to jungle–and a strangely empty town cobbled together from different cultures and time periods, all watched over by eerie black windows. And she isn’t alone.

Four other teenagers have also been taken: a beautiful model, a tattooed smuggler, a secretive genius, and an army brat who seems to know too much about Cora’s past. None of them have a clue as to what happened, and all of them have secrets. As the unlikely group struggles for leadership, they slowly start to trust each other. But when their mysterious jailer appears–a handsome young guard named Cassian–they realize that their captivity is more terrifying than they could ever imagine: their captors aren’t from Earth. And they have taken they five teenagers to an otherworldly zoo–where the exhibits are humans.

When a forbidden attraction develops between Cora and Cassian, she realizes that her best chance of escape might be in the arms of her own jailer–though that would mean leaving the others behind. Can Cora manage to save herself and her companions? And if so…what world lies beyond the walls of their cage?

Why I am waiting on this book: Aliens, basically. I love science fiction, and I love stories about aliens, and this one just made me really curious. I can’t wait for it to come out, and then I’ll just try to read it asap!
