Currently Reading/ April TBR

Hello everyone!
Thought I’d do a little reading update today, I don’t usually set tbrs but there are some books I really want to get to this month. Plus I thought I’d talk about what I’m currently reading etc…

Currently reading:

 Goddess of the Hunt by Shelby EileenGoddess of The Hunt eBook: Shelby Eileen: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle StoreThis is a poetry collection, I’ve seen it around Instagram and since I love Greek Myth I thought I’d give it ago. I’m not usually a poetry person but I’ve been wanting to try it more and read out of my comfort zone. So far, it’s okay, I’m not hugely in love with it but it’s an enjoyable read.


TBR

Knock Three Times by Cressida Cowell
The Wizards of Once: Knock Three Times Audiobook by Cressida ...

I have been waiting SO long for this to come into my library’s catalogue, I listened to the first two on audio and wanted to continue in the format.
The narrator is David Tennant. Need I say more?
He is INCREDIBLE. These books are so much fun, I cannot wait to finally listen to this!

The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg

The Kingdom: Amazon.co.uk: Rothenberg, Jess: 9781509899388: Books

Someone from twitter kindly sent me this from my Amazon wishlist back in December and I have been dying to read it ever since. I will finally be reading it this month!

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City): Amazon.co.uk: Maas ...
This is maybe… I really, really want to read this but I know it will take over my life and I have essays to write. I also want to enjoy it as much as possible and don’t want my essay stress to hinder my enjoyment. I hope to at least start this, this month.

A Very Austen WWW Wednesday | 9/10/2019

WWW-Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

This week’s post is very Austen centred. I have been mainly Jay Kristoff focused in the last god knows how many WWW Wednesday’s I’m glad to be featuring something else!
I started my second year of university last week and this semester I’m doing a whole module on Jane Austen. There’s going to be an abundance of her appearing over the next month as I read most of her books.

If you didn’t know already, WWW Wednesday is hosted on Taking on a World of Words. It’s a super simple meme, you just answered the three W questions.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading
What do you think you’ll read next?
Recently Finished:

Teenage Writings by Jane Austen

Image result for teenage writings jane austen

This was odd. It was quite a drag to read but it was for uni so I had to read it to be able to study it. It’s not something I ever would’ve picked up for fun.


Currently Reading:

Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff (still)

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen


Reading Next:

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

This will be a reread for me, I read this last year, I think. I’m excited to revist this book and study it in detail!


I am also want to pick up: Saga Vol 3 by Brian K. Vaughan + Fiona Staples

Image result for saga vol 3
I have a loooot of reading for class, hence why I haven’t finished Darkdawn yet, so I thought a graphic novel would be a good idea to pick up next. It’s quick and easy to read and I have been dying to continue this series: It’s incredible!
The first two are on *Kindle Unlimited, worth signing up for a trial purely for them!

Happy Wednesday!
Sorry I’ve been SO inactive. Having no wifi is horrendous in general but especially as a blogger! I’m going to try and schedule as many posts as I can as I start uni soon.
But I’m back with another WWW Wednesday!

This tag/meme is hosted on Taking on a World of Words. It’s a super simple meme, you just answered the three W questions.

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

Image result for godsgrave uk paperback

I finally finished Godsgrave! I can get to the final book at last and complete the series!!
I am in such a bad reading slump. These books are taking me ages to get through but I’m enjoying them regardless. Godsgrave was better than Nevernight – which started too slow for my liking. This book was faster paced and more exciting. I LOVED the setting so much, it was so cool to experience.
Full review coming soon!


Currently Reading:

Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff

Image result for darkdawn

The cliffhanger Godsgrave ended on was BRUTAL. I am so glad this book was waiting next to me. I IMMEDIATELY picked up this book after Godsgrave. I HAD to know what happened next. I am hoping my reading slump has finally gone since I’m actually excited about reading again. Will Darkdawn beat Godsgrave?! I’m dying to find out how it all ends. Hopefully, I won’t be disappointed.


Reading Next:

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

Image result for sense and sensibility arcturus

Uni starts next week so I need to get a move on with my required reading!
I’m doing a whole lot of Jane Austen this semester so she will be appearing in a lot of WWW Wednesdays/Wrap up and potentially reviews!
I’ll probably be switching between audiobook and physical book for this.
PS. How beautiful is this edition of S&S?! All my JA books are the Arcturus editions – they are seriously beautiful.

I FINALLY FINISHED!
Man, I’ve been in such a slump since late August, I almost DNF’d Nevernight but I am glad I didn’t! I’m glad I pushed through because I ended up really enjoying it. It took me a long time to get into and a long time to read (because of the slump) but it was worth it.
Will post a full review soon.

Currently Reading:

Nothing. I am about to start: The Good Luck by Charlotte Nicole Davis as I impatiently wait for Godsgrave.

I have been meaning to read this for ages, it’s appeared on many WWW Wednesday’s – I am finally reading it now I’ve seemed to break my slump.


Reading Next:

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff (DUH)

Obviously, I will be reading Darkdawn after, I hear Godsgrave ends on quite the cliffhanger. So glad all the books are now out!

Happy Wednesday!

Sorry, for the lack of posts/replies to comments.
I moved to uni on Sunday and my place still doesn’t have Wifi 😦 It’s been such a pain.
I’ve currently gone back home just to use wifi, luckily, my mum’s isn’t super far from my uni flat.

Nothing 😦
I’ve been super busy packing for uni and moving into my new place that I haven’t been reading at all. My insomnia has been really bad lately, too. I can’t read as much when my insomnia is playing up as my concentration isn’t good.
Reading Next:
I’ll probably read Godsgrave then Darkdawn next. I am actually getting into Nevernight and enjoying it now, it took me a while but I’m getting there! I’m sure after I’m done I’ll want to pick up the next two and binge the series.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I’m not far into this yet; I’ve been reading it for a few days and have barely made a dent, it’s just not gripping me so far. I’m intrigued to see what everyone loves though, so I keep going. I NEED to know what the hype is about but so far: Meh.
Recently Finished:

The Humans by Matt Haig (audiobook)

Image result for the humans matt haig audiobook

I finished this yesterday – it was a good listen! It was funny and entertaining, I didn’t like the ending much but overall it was very enjoyable.
I gave it 3.5 Stars!

What I might read next:

Once I finish Nevernight I want to pick up Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff, obviously.
Then a repeat from my last WWW:
The Good Luck Girls because I haven’t managed to read that yet.

I also have been loving graphic novels lately and I requested a few on NetGalley so I’ll be reading those soon too! Aion looks and sounds so cool and interesting, hopefully, it is as good as it looks/sounds.

I’m currently listening to the audiobook of The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher. I’ve already read this book, back when it first came out, but I saw it available at my library and I had to get it! It’s so much nicer listening to Carrie narrate this herself. Loving it!

Recently Finished:
I finished two books recently, the first being: The Handbook For Highly Sensitive People by Mel Collins

The second being: Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

After reading the Shadow and Bone trilogy I wanted to reread Six of Crows and it has just become available at my library! It’s a full cast audiobook, which I’ve never experienced before, hopefully, I’ll enjoy this.

Welcome to my first ever WWW Wednesday!

This tag/meme is hosted on Taking on a World of Words. It’s a super simple meme, you just answered the three W questions.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

What I am currently reading:
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

2019-05-18 03.20.44 1.jpg

Finally, getting around to reading this!! It has been sitting on my shelf for far too long. I’ve been in a huge sci-fi mood lately, so it’s perfect timing.

What I Recently Finished:

Nyxia by Scott Reintgen (audiobook)

Image result for nyxia audiobook
This was my audiobook for my holiday, I listened to it while travelling and it was really interesting. I think it was a solid start to a series and will definitely be continuing!
Review coming soon!

No Big Deal by Bethany Rutter*

20190618_155241.jpg

Despite being in a sci-fi mood, I decided to take a contemporary on holiday with me too.
This was such a nice, quick read – perfect for my holiday! I flew through it.
It was a good read, though I had a few problems. Will discuss more in my review, which will be coming soon.


What I Might Read Next:

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli (audiobook)

Image result for the upside of unrequited audiobook
This has become available at my library so I will definitely be listening to this next!
I loved Simon Vs but have never read anything else by Becky Albertalli – which I clearly need to fix. It’s not a super long audiobook, hoping to get through it pretty quick.

As for non-audiobooks, I have no idea what I’m going to be in the mood for after Skyward.
But potentially it could be:

Limited Wish by Mark Lawerence

Hey guys!
Haven’t posted in a bit thought I’d put out a quick post today and let you know I’m not gone! It was the last week of the semester last week, so I was pretty busy. (and forgot to prewrite and schedule posts)
Hopefully, I can post consistently now uni is over! I do have finals to do but I will have more free time since I get to pick my study schedule and I don’t have to travel to uni 5 days a week, woo!

I am currently reading One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence. The premise is really interesting and it’s pretty short. Super quick and easy to read so far! Will have a review up for this when I finish it!


I feel like I might be going into a slump. So who knows if I’ll read any of these. Keeping my hopes up that I can stop the slump! Make sure to check out my wrap up at the end of the month to see whether I make it through any of these (haha).

Other Words For Smoke by Sarah Marie Griffin

I am intrigued by this book, the cover is beautiful and the premise is interesting. Hopefully, it won’t disappoint!

 



The Seven Husband’s of Evelyn Hugo

33289074

I finally bought a copy! (Kindle 99p!) So, I am finally going to read this book. I have heard non-stop amazing things about this book, if it doesn’t blow my mind I will be seriously disappointed.

I’m waiting for this to become available from my library. I currently don’t have an audiobook and I’m desperate for one! Lately, I am mostly consuming books via audio as it is much more convenient!
