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

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

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!

You’re probably all sick of seeing Jay Kristoff on every WWW Wednesday I post but here he is again. (lol) So far I’m enjoying Godsgrave, I love Mia as a character and I can’t wait to see where the story goes!

I’m also reading Teenage Writings by Jane Austen.
This is for a class I’m taking this semester, which hasn’t started yet, but I thought I’d get ahead with my required reading.

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.

Recently Finished:
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.

WWW-Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!
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

Currently Reading + Mid-April TBR

 

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!

 

Currently Reading:

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!

Current Reads + March TBR 2019

Hey Guys!
Thought I’d update on my reading. I don’t usually do posts like this but I definitely think I should do more! I never do TBR posts usually, due to the fact I feel pressured into reading those books and I’m a huge mood reader. I usually don’t pick my book until I need it.
However, this month I have a few I definitely want to pick up!

I’m currently reading/listening to three books!

Currently listening to:

City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

Image result for city of ghosts victoria schwab audio

Cress by Marissa Meyer

Image result for cress audiobook

Currently Reading:

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
(This is for a class at uni)

867638


Onto what else I want (+have) to read this month!

For uni I have to read:

  • Mrs Warren’s Profession by Bernard Shaw (play) 
  • A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Wolf
  • A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry (play)
  • The Bloody Chamber and other stories by Angela Carter
  • The Zoo Story by Edward Albee (play)

Yikes! Wish me luck…

Books for pleasure:

  • The Near Witch by V.E Schwab – I going to V.E Schwab’s book signing on Monday (SO EXCITED) So, I’m trying to read as many as her books as I can. (Plus, I was sent The Near Witch for review so I need to get on that asap!)
  • Winter by Marissa Meyer  (audiobook)- Once I finish Cress I know I’ll want to pick this up straight away. I am LOVING this series. Hopefully, the audiobook will be available when I’m done with Cress. (Fingers crossed!) This last audiobook is pretty damn long, so I don’t know if it’ll be in my March wrap up.

 

Considering I’ve been in a slump for months now, this TBR is quite ambitious.  Hopefully, I won’t struggle too much! Audiobooks have been my saviour, I am loving them at the moment. So convenient for me when travelling/doing uni work.

 


Let me know what you’re reading/planning to read, I’d love to know!
