WWW Wednesdays #11: Weekly Reading Update

Currently Reading
Slayer by Kiersten White

I’m currently reading The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen and I’m loving it so far!

Finished Reading

                        Beasts of the Frozen SunBrazen and the Beast

Beasts of the Frozen Sun by Jill Criswell was the last book I finished and it was a beautifully written fantasy inspired by Celtic mythology. I’ll share my thoughts soon. I also finished reading Brazen and the Beast by Sarah MacLean and it was so amazing!!

Reading Next

                        The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren How the Light Gets In by Katy Upperman

Christina Lauren are one of my favourite authors and The Unhoneymooners has been on the list of my most anticipated books of 2019, but it appears that I completely forgot to read it pre-publication….. SO, my next read will be The Unhoneymooners and after that it’ll be How the Light Gets In by Katy Upperman.

Thank you for reading

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag | 2019 edition

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag (2019)

We bookworms( like every other people) are always freaking out: about books we haven’t read, about books we read.. I can’t believe that half of 2019 has gone by..How? Anyhow, here I am with my first Mid Year Freak Out Tag, thanks to Nandini @ Unputdownable Books !!!

Click here to find the original Tag questions 1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2019
2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2019
3. New release you haven’t read yet, but want to
4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year
5. Biggest disappointment

1. How many books have you read so far in 2019?

I’ve managed to read about 72 books according to Goodreads, which also tells me I’m 17 books ahead of schedule! I’ve set my goal to 100 books but I think I’ll pass that goal soon enough. I don’t always update my reading progress on Goodreads so I’ve already missed adding a couple of books. I’ve participated in two readathons so far and that’s exactly why I managed to read more than I usually would’ve.

2. Which is the best book you’ve read so far in 2019?

              

This is a difficult question as I’ve got many books in mind: Where The Crawdads Sing, A Curse so Dark and Lonely, Serpent & Dove and The Kingdom, The Merciful Crow and The Storm Crow

3. Which is the best sequel you’ve read so far in 2019?

Soul of the Sword is the best sequel I’ve read so far this year. Also, I want to mention The Winter of the Witch -which is a sequel of sorts(I guess- which I LOVED so much and bawled because I realized that the Winternight trilogy is over.

4. Which new release you haven’t read yet, but want to?

Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer

As a newly minted Brigid Kemmerer fan, I want to read more of her books and this newly released YA contemporary sounds like something I’d tremendously enjoy 😀

5. Which is your most anticipated release for the second half of the year?


    

I’ve written a separate post about some of my most anticipated books of the second half of 2019 and they’re listed here

6. Which book has been the biggest disappointment so far in 2019?

Outfox by Sandra Brown

*Sighs* I’ve dnf’d many books, gave some one stars, but what hurts is giving one star to a book I genuinely thought I’d love because it was by one of my favourite authors. Also, included in this list would be The Beholder.

7. Which book has been the biggest surprise so far in 2019?

Emily Eternal

Emily Eternal by M.G. Wheaton is one of the best books I’ve read this year. It surprised me because I don’t usually find sci-fi books enjoyable but I HIGHLY recommend you read this one! It’s about Emily who’s an Artifical Consciousness( not an A.I.), designed to save humanity from extinction.

8. Who is your new favourite author (debut or new to you)?

The Flatshare

Beth O’Leary, author of The Flatshare, is my new favourite author. There’s also Danielle Jensen, who wrote Dark Shores, Delia Owen of Where the Crawdads Sing, Brigid Kemmerer and Joan He (Descendant of the Crane)

9. Who is your newest favorite character(and literary crush)?

Harper and Mia from A Curse so Dark and Lonely and Where the Crawdads Sing respectively! One of my favourite literary crushes is Reid Diggory from Serpent and Dove 😍😍

10. Which book made you cry so far in 2019?

The Song of Achilles

Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

11. Which book made you happy so far in 2019?

Serious Moonlight

There are many books that made me laugh- sometimes so violently that everyone would stare at me- but I can only remember Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett which brought a smile to my face at almost every chapter.

12. Which is the most beautiful book you’ve bought so far in 2019 (or received)?

Sorcery of Thorns

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson is one of the beautiful books I’ve received this year. Enchantment of Ravens by the author had a gorgeous cover too! I also received The Storm Crow, Beasts of the Frozen Sun and The Girl the Sea Gave back, all of which had gorgeous covers.

14. What books you you need to read by the end of the year?

                                           

Along with some other books in my ever-increasing TBR pile, I need to finish reading these two which I’ve been putting off for two long.

I tag:

Anyone who’s reading this and hasn’t done this tag yet!

                                     Slayer by Kiersten White   Slayer by Kiersten White

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Armentrout’s books and when I was offered an ARC of this novella The King , I had to start reading it immediately! I’m also listening to The Bookish Life of Nina Hill, which I’ve been seeing on bookstagram a lot.

WWW Wednesday #5 : Weekly Reading update
                                       Nocturna by Maya Motayne  Nocturna by Maya Motayne

Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim was the last book I finished. It was on the list of my most anticipated books for the first half of 2019 and it wasn’t spectacular nor was it disappointing. I’ll share my thoughts soon. I also finished reading Patron Saints of Nothing, another anticipated read of mine, and I loved it so much.

Some of my Bookish Confessions: “I Should Have Read That” Book Tag

Some of my Bookish Confessions: "I Should Have Read That" Book Tag

I’m naming this post as Some of my Bookish Confessions because it feels like I’m confessing my bookish sins..so yeah. Thank you so much Simant @ Flipping Through the Pages and one another blogger whom I can’t remember (sorry) for tagging me!

  3. Answer the questions below.
  4. Tag 10 others to take part.
  5. ENJOY!

A book that a certain friend always tells you to read

Six of Crows

Six of Crows and its sequel have been recommended to me about a million times *slight exaggeration* now. I even have the collector’s edition on my shelf but I still can’t take the time to read it.

A book that has been on your TBR forever, and yet you still haven’t picked it up

Muse of Nightmares

Well, not forever, but I admit I have two editions of Muse of Nightmares sitting on my bookshelf for – what it seems like- eternity. I loved Strange the Dreamer so much that I can’t believe I haven’t read its sequel!

A book in a series you have started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing

The Winter of the Witch

I’ve read and LOVED the first two books in the Winternight trilogy but I have yet to read the third and final book, The Winter of the Witch.

A classic you have always liked the sound of, but never actually read

Dorian Gray

I read one page of this classic in high school and loved it. However, I forgot all about it later.

A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet

Harry Potter

..and never will I find the time to read this. Maybe, I’ll listen to the audiobook. Is there an audiobook for this? I REALLY f-ing hope so.

A book you see all over Instagram, but haven’t picked up yet

the Sun is also a Star

The Sun is Also a Star was so popular on bookstagram a few months ago. Get Underlined was doing a massive promotion but I still didn’t get the urge to pick it up. Again, looking at my TBR, I don’t think I will pick it up…however, we shall see.
