Lady Midnight has been released and I still don’t have it! *Cries* | WWW Wednesday #44 (March 9th)

Okay, sooo firstly, let me just freak out over the fact that Lady Midnight came out yesterday!! *Dies* Ahhhh I’m heading over to buy it soon, definitely. I’d have pre-ordered it but eh. For some reason I’m not a big fan of pre-ordering? Call me crazy, but yeah. I can’t wait to buy it, omg. I still don’t have it though.. SOB.

BUT that’s not the point of this post, ah yes. Apart from Lady Midnight news, I started A Gathering of Shadows! I posted my review of the first book on Monday and I started the second book now, I’m so excited!! But let me share the rest of my bookish on-goings…

Currently Reading

I started Illuminae several days ago.. but I haven’t made much progress with it? I know, I know, I really have to get going with it but in between I started Frozen Tides and I finished that and then so I unintentionally went on a pause from Illuminae, and then.. well, point is, I still have a lot to go on this, agh. But it’s not bad so far!

After writing up my review on A Darker Shade of Magic, I didn’t waste any time starting A Gathering of Shadows! In hindsight it might’ve been better to have finished Illuminae first, but… temptation bit hard. So far it’s really good–and I can’t wait to read more of it!

Recently Finished

The Accident Season was SO GOOD! It was so entertaining to read, not to mention I loved the writing and the characters were very well-written. Ahhh. And there were so many little things that I loved! The whole magical realism thing going on was super cool too. Definitely recommend for those who don’t mind a little creepiness and are looking for a contemporary/magical realism crossover-type book!

I started Frozen Tides while in the midst of reading Illuminae, as it was the last book to read for the Falling Kingdoms read-along (the next books in the series haven’t been published yet) and it was amazing. I could not put it down and it was absolutely addicting! I found myself loving the characters and everything a lot more (although critically, it wasn’t as good as how much I enjoyed it.)

Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy and The Lost Herondale are both books part of the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy series, and *gasp* I hadn’t read them yet, so with the release of Lady Midnight, I decided to read them! I absolutely can’t wait to read Lady Midnight, but I’m hoping to finish the 10 novellas in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy first. (Apparently there are characters in it that will appear in Lady Midnight too?)

Read Next

I ended up taking off Lola and the Boy Next Door, which was on my list last week, to add again another time. Right now I’m too much in a fantasy and action-type mood to pick up anything else, though I might change my mind.

So, after The Lost Herondale comes The Whitechapel Fiend followed by Nothing But Shadows! I’m hoping to get at least those two read, and maybe even more so I can start Lady Midnight as soon as possible. 😉

Red Rising has been on my TBR for quite some time, and although I doubt I will be getting to it this week, I’m adding it to the list, just to make sure I remember to read it at least some time soon. Hopefully. I can’t wait!

And of course, Lady Midnight is on my list once again. I know I mentioned I’d read the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy before I read LM, and I’m hoping to do that, but I might just give in to the temptation and read this as soon as I get it. Lol. Do I even need to say I’m excited? It would be an understatement anyway.

Alright, so that’s it for this week! I’m still crying over the fact that I still don’t have Lady Midnight, but I’m calmed (like, by 0.000000001%) because I started A Gathering of Shadows—which I’m so excited to read!! I’m hoping to complete Illuminae as well, I’ve heard so much about it and I feel bad for kind of neglecting it in favour of other books, haha.

How has your week gone? What books on here have you read? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ❤

Until the Next Meal, Analee

  1. I hope you keep enjoying AGOS. I thought it was terrific. Not quite as good as ADSOM, but still brilliant.
    Illuminae does take a while to get into. At first it takes ages and some flicking back and forth to work out who is emailing who etc, but after a while you get into it and it’s easier to read.
    I hope you get your hands on Lady Midnight soon 🙂

    Here’s my WWW:

  2. Yes yes YES, I am SO happy you liked The Accident Season! I can’t wait to read anything that author writes next. I’m sure even her grocery list is amazing to read, haha :p I want to read Illuminae, too, mainly because I’m too curious, ahah. Can’t wait to know if you liked it 🙂

  3. I was dying yesterday because the mail was taking so long to deliver Lady Midnight. I took off work for the release and it didn’t get delivered until 745pm! So yea sometimes pre-ordering is not the best idea.

    • Omg the wait must’ve been terrible! It sucks when these things happen. Pre-ordering is great in theory and all, but sometimes in reality it doesn’t always turn out to be 100% reliable or a perfect method. 😉


  4. I’m kind of waiting to see how the reviews come out before rushing to get Lady Midnight. I really loved Mortal Instruments but have been struggling with Infernal Devices for months (still haven’t read the last one). Think I’m in the minority though so hope it lives up to expectations 🙂

    • I can understand that! Haha I think I actually ended up liking the Infernal Devices a bit more than the Mortal Instruments. 😂 I hope you enjoy the last book in the series if you ever get around to it though!
      From the few reviews I’ve read on Lady Midnight, it seems amazing, but I guess I’ll have to read it to find out! 😍 Can’t wait.

  5. I’ve read the first two novellas from Tale as well but I dont want to keep buying them individually ,I’d rather buy the entire thing in physical form but I did here about the appearances in LM too but oh well I’ll just wait like I did with The Bane Chronicles
