I read Lady Midnight… and it was AMAZING. | WWW Wednesday #45 (March 16th)

Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday once again, which of course means, a WWW Wednesday post! The biggest news I have really is the fact that I read both Lady Midnight and A Gathering of Shadows, both of which I absolutely loved! Though agh, I’m still reading Illuminae. Oops.

Alright, let’s get to the actual books!

Currently Reading

Okay, yes, I realize I have been reading this for almost over a week now, and yes, I realize that I have been giving priority to other books instead of this one BUT I swear, I’m actually going to focus on this now. (Well, I’ll try. And that counts for something, right?) I really do want to finish this book!

Recently Finished

I (shockingly) managed to find time to finish the rest of the Tales from Shadowhunter Academy ebooks! I couldn’t help it; I really wanted to move on to Lady Midnight, but I wanted to finish the tales first. And I’m glad I did–I really enjoyed them!

A Gathering of Shadows was so, so, SO good. But that cliffhanger! Aghhhhh it’s too painful. My emotions were all over for this book, my heart got stomped on, I had some near-screeching moments where characters made unintelligent moves, my heart got stomped on–you know, the usual. It was such a great sequel to the already fantastic ADSOM–It was amazing!

Okay, so my last read for this week was the hugely anticipated Lady Midnight! *Cue fangirling shrieks* Once I finished the Tales from Shadowhunter Academy, I decided I couldn’t wait and dived right into Lady Midnight. And oh. my. god. I cannot even express my feelings of love right now since they’re so intense. I literally devoured this whole book and it was so amazing, just simply fantastic. If you’re hesitating about reading this, I’m telling you, READ ITTTTT. NOWW.

Read Next

Red Rising is on my list once again this week–and I’m hoping to get to it soon after finishing Illuminae! I’ve been looking forward to jumping on the Pierce Brown bandwagon for a while now. 🙂

The Rest of Us Just Live Here has been one of those books I kept telling myself I’d read, yet never got around to. I’ve put off putting it on my Read Next list for some reason? But now I’m finally going to try and read it. It’s not that I don’t want to.. it’s just I’m scared of my expectations? So.

I’ve been meaning to read The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender (woo, that’s a mouthful) for a while now, due to its intriguing synopsis and the things I’ve heard about it. I doubt I’ll actually be able to read this, but I do plan on reading it sometime!

Unlike the rest of the above books I mentioned, Vicious isn’t technically part of my March TBR, but I’ve decided that I most definitely want to read it this month! It’s been on my TBR FOREVER and now, having read ADSOM and AGOS, I’m craving for another novel by V.E. Schwab.

Alright so that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! It’s been a busy week, though not as much as usual, but I’m still quite shocked I managed to get through so much! Lady Midnight and A Gathering of Shadows both were quite long novels, haha. Though totally worth it!

What books have you been reading recently? What do you think of the books this week? Anyone else out there who’s read Lady Midnight or A Gathering of Shadows? I’d love to chat, so leave all and any of your thoughts in the comments! ❤ Hope you’re enjoying your day!

Until the Next Meal, Analee

  1. I’m eager to know how you feel about The Rest of Us Just Live here, I really liked that book, but I know some people found it not to be Patrick Ness’ best work. Hopefully you’ll love it! 🙂
    I really want to read The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, as well, it sounds like a weird book, kind of with the same vibe from The Accident Season,s o I’m excited! 😀

  2. The Rest of Us Just Live Here was pretty good but in my opinion nowhere near as amazing as some of Ness’s other books. I hope you love it though and can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

    • It’s what I keep hearing so I’m trying to keep my expectations low, haha. 🙂 I really hope to read it soon! (I keep saying that I’m gonna read it, yet I never do… though to be fair I haven’t been reading many books lately!)

      • It’s a good one to pick up when you’ve got nothing else to read in my opinion, I hope you like t though!


  3. I’m so glad Lady Midnight wasn’t a disappointment!:-)
    I’m also really pleased you loved AGOS – I thought it was great, but you’re right about THAT cliffhanger!!!
    I’ve read 3 of your “read next” books. I think my favourite was Vicious, followed by The Rest of Us and then Ava Lavender (which is good, but sadder than I’d expected). I’ve been meaning to put Red Rising on my TBR for ages, so I’ll look forward to hearing what you think.

    • Me too! I loved reading it.
      Aha I know right??! It was so good but now I’m dying for the next book omg.
      I’m jealous :P–I still have to pick up even one of them aghhhh reading slumps are the worst. I can’t wait to read them all!
      I really hope it turns out to be good, I keep hearing so much about it!

  4. Vicious is a phenomenal book. Schwab has a gift for writing anti-heroes, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it if you enjoyed ADSoM as much as you did. Speaking of which, I NEED TO READ THE SEQUEL. I hear nothing but amazing things.
    I’m a little ways into Lady Midnight, and I’m very much enjoying it, which is surprising because I had expected to hate it. Really loving the details we’re getting about the fae!

    • Ahhhhhh I really can’t wait to read it, omg. I’m *slightly* (read:enormously) frustrated for not having picked it up already. It seems so good, eep! ❤
      Omg yessss you must read the sequel! I shall give you chocolate if you do. (Of course that is the perfect incentive, yes?)
      Yayyy I'm so happy to hear that! I kind of adored it so I can't wait to see what you think of it. 😀 I loved the fae aspects of it too!


  5. OMG Yes!! How good was Lady Midnight?? I ship Jemma so so much! I loved Tales of Shadowhunter Academy! For me, it was ten times better than The Bane Chronicles! I have A Darker Shade of Magic on my TBR! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Illuminae! I hope you enjoy Red Rising, it has been on my TBR for ages!

    • I know right?!!! The book literally took my heart and crushed it while laughing at me. XD Eeeee Jemma was so fabulous! The Tales of Shadowhunter Academy were definitely really good. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on ADSOM-I loved it so much omg. I hope so too!

  6. Heard so many good things on Lady Midnight – hope it lives up to the hype! I haven’t even brought it yet. I hope you like The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender! I read it last year and I liked it, it was very unusual and different from the traditional YA 😉
