Hello! How are you all today? Okay, so I think I should just name ALL my WWW Wednesday posts ‘too many books, too little time’?? That’s already what I say for my life, soooo… Oh well. I can never find enough time to read.. and there’s just so many books I want to read. (That is, allll of them. Which is proving to be more and more impossible.)
However, I did manage to get some reading done this past week! And I’m currently reading two books, that I hope to finish this week… that counts for something, right? Of course it does. So let’s just go onto the books!
WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words), where we answer the following questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
- Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
Yes, I finally started both A Darker Shade of Magic AND Wolf by Wolf! I wasn’t going to pick up Wolf by Wolf after I started A Darker Shade of Magic, but then I decided I might as well seeing as I can read A Darker Shade of Magic as an ebook (but I also have a physical copy for some reason??) and Wolf by Wolf only as a hardcover. So yay!
I started ADSOM on Monday, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to read it much! It really sucks but I hope to make more progress on it this week. It’s okay so far, I guess, though unfortunately I haven’t gotten much time to read it.
As for Wolf by Wolf—I just started it yesterday night! I think I’m on the 4th or 5th chapter?? I’m actually really liking it so far. Let’s just say it definitely didn’t waste any time in getting the action started!
I might also decide to put either WbW or ADSOM on pause while I finish the other, but I don’t know yet… should I? I mean, they’re both in different formats, so it’s easy to pick up one if I don’t have the other, or something… I dunno. I’m terrible at making decisions sometimes. I guess it might just happen naturally though if I start to favor one over the other lol.
- Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
- Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes
- More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
I finished Glass Sword! If you saw my Spotlight Saturday post, you know how I felt about it. I’d repeat it, but basically the gist of is; although it became a roller-coaster of emotions near the end, I was left indifferent for a majority of the book, sooo. Yeah. Not the reaction I was going for, but it was still good. (The book, not the reaction.)
Omg Gathering Darkness has me wanting to read the fourth book asap! So much drama in this one, as well as betrayal, romance, and just, it was totally entertaining!! I’m tempted to just continue with the fourth book even though I’m supposed to wait for March 4th?? I’m also trying to decide if I should do separate reviews for each of the books or just do a series review… thoughts?
Agh More Happy Than Not was amazing… it completely broke my heart?! But I honestly loved it. There were so many amazing themes and relationships between characters…and oh my god, the ending?! I hit the end and ahhhhhh my heart!! I couldn’t stop reading but my heart just got stomped on… but I loved it? I can totally see what the hype was about now!
- Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
- Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
- The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
Lola and the Boy Next Door is on my list again this week—I have a feeling reading it might be a good relief after the two more heavier reads I’m reading currently…
So many people have been urging me to read Aristotle and Dante! And so I’ve decided to add it to my read next this month, in hopes of being able to find the motivation to read it! Not sure what’s stopping me, but oh well.
Ahh, Illuminae. This book completely blew up in the book community, and I’m itching to see why! Though right now the sheer size of it intimidates me.. But I want to read this, I do!
I added The Accident Season to my monthly TBR plan for February, and I thought I might as well add it to the read next this week, though I have no idea when or if I’ll be picking it up this week. Doubt I’ll have the time, but who knows?
So that’s it for this week’s reading progress! How has your reading been going? Feel free to link your WWW down below if you have one. What books should I focus on next? Have any of you read any of the above books? Let me know in the comments! ❤

Wow! Some brilliant books!
I love ADSOM and i hope you have more time to read it. I’m currently on the sequel which is very very good so far.
Illuminae is fantastic. I hope you have a physical copy because I imagine some bits of it would be hard to read in e-book.

🙂 I hope so too! Right now I’m nearing the end of Wolf by Wolf, so I’m hoping I’ll get the chance to focus on ADSOM a bit more.
I’m so glad you enjoyed Illuminae Haha your words make me glad I paid the extra dollars for the physical copy of the book. XD I can’t wait to read it!
