WWW Wednesday


WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words and to participate all you have to do is answer the three W’s listed below. Once you’ve posted your WWW, drop a link to your post in Sam’s comments <3’s!

The questions are:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

I am currently at the 50% mark in The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King & enjoying Kalinda’s strong character. However, I will say that this one reads more like an adult Fantasy than YA. Which to me makes sense given the nature of this story. You have a tyrant who is in search of his 100th wife; a tyrant who also keeps courtesans. Then we have Kalinda who doesn’t really fit the mold of the women the Tyrant has “claimed” but somehow manages to be chosen as the 100th Rani aka wife which puts her in a high position = only to that of his 1st wife. With a target on her back, Kalinda has to fight for her thrown as per tradition, one that she never wanted in the 1st place. My main interest is Kalinda & her forbidden power as well as the others like her outside the palace walls that share her powers. We shall see how I feel about this one soon…

I recently finished reading Eliza And Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia & I can’t stop thinking about it! so good! I thought it would be a cute story to read in prep for the Summer days but it turned out to be so much more than that. I was lucky to be approved for an eGalley but when I saw it arrive in my Owlcrate box this month I couldn’t stop hugging it lol. Full review to post tomorrow Thursday. Before that I read New Boy by Tracy Chevalier (review here) which is part of the Shakespeare Hogarth collection. New boy was short but powerful. A inside look to the effects of racism passed down to children. The setting is a playground in a all white school during the 70’s Nixon administration. This book rattled me & left me deep in thought.

Gahhhhh! 2 reads I am so excited to get to & thankful to have been approved for. Saints and Misfits is one that I was highly anticipating ever since I laid eyes on the cover & S.K. Ali is just an overall sweetheart who is very interactive & reachable to her readers (LOVE THAT!). I recently received a Owlcrate box that had a promo card for Song Of The Current (Song Of The Current #1) which led me straight to Goodreads. I love my fantasy, it’s what I read & review most on LairOfBooks so it came as no surprise that a river God, pirates, and magic would call my name. Really looking forward to these two 😉

What are you all currently reading? planning to read next? any good ones? & if you’re reading any of the ones I mentioned, let me know down in the comments what your 1st impressions were <3’s!

  1. I’ve been seeing a lot of The Hundredth Queen lately. I’m still a little on the fence about picking it up, because that cover reminds me of a typical medieval romance cover. Haha! I think I’ll wait and see what you think about it before I add it to my TBR.

    1. I recently caught wind of the book twitter drama (try to steer clear) but I already had a copy so I decided to see for myself. I can honestly say that I don’t see what the few who are already bashing it, see in this book. As a diverse reader, I aim to keep it honest on my blog with regards to bad representation but as much as i’m digging, I’m just not seeing it. Regardless, as I read I often check to see if anyone has shed some light on the “problematic” aspects but haven’t seen anyone do so yet. However, it’s def NOT a medieval romance BAHAAAA! 😉

      1. I didn’t even realize there was book twitter drama over this one!!! I’ve just been seeing a lot of people mentioning that they’re reading it and stuff. I’m so out of the loop on drama as I tend to not get involved with all that Twitter mess lol. I’ll have to look into it now that you’ve mentioned it, haha… Hahahaha I didn’t think it was, but that cover just gives me that vibe. 😂

  2. I think I have been living on an abandoned island because somehow I had never heard about Eliza And Her Monsters before! I LOVED Made You Up so this one is going straight to my wishlist. Great to hear you love it that much!

  3. Oh man, I really need to Eliza and her Monsters. I haven’t seen any reviews for it so far but hearing how much you loved it means I need to add it to my summer contemporary TBR list! Also Song of the Current is at the top of my to-read list as well. I have been so excited for that book since I first heard of it at the end of last year (I think). I can’t believe its release date is nearly here, but oh I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
    Great picks for this feature Lilly, these all sound like amazing books! 😀

    1. Really? I’m finding that a few bloggers haven’t heard of it but those who have, fell in love with it. I’m actually on my way to writing that review lol, Song of the Current just sounds like I’m going to enjoy it so can’t wait to get started after Saints & Misfits. Thank you Beth! 😉

      1. In that case I’m hoping I’ll be one of the bloggers who falls in love with it as well! 😀
        Same here, I’ve been waiting on that book for what feels like forever now but I am so so so excited to finally be able to get started on it.
        That’s all right! 😀
