WWW Wednesday #12

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted over @shouldbereading. To join in all you have to do is answer the three following questions:
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish?
  • What do you think you'll read next?


 Here are my answers for the week! Please live a comment below with a link to your WWW Wednesday posts :) I love to see what you're all doing reading wise this week!

  • What are you currently reading?
I'm reading what I call a bit of "fluff" before reading something a little more serious. I love Sparks' books despite not really being into contemporary books and preferring books set in ancient times, another world etc. He just writes such good books, not brilliant but quick and easy reads that I enjoy reading. I know exactly what I'm getting when I pick up a Nicholas Sparks book. This will be a nice little read before starting a new fantasy series.



  •  What did you recently finish?
I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. Completely different from a lot of fantasy books, its protagonist is no honourable person but a damaged, twisted and ruthless individual. I don't know exactly what I didn't like about this book. It wasn't the graphic violence or the characters. I felt that the story didn't flow well maybe but then I also think there's a reason for the disjointed story and narrative. I don't know, I'll try and get all my thoughts and ideas down in a review soon. I'd still recommend it though. Such a different fantasy book from the traditional ones, a completely different perspective. (3.5/5 Stars)

  • What do you think you'll read next?
I think I'll probably start Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn books as soon as I finish read Sparks' novel. I think by the time that I've finished that it'll be the beginning of August which means: Review Copy Cleanup August Challenge. I think I'm mostly going to aim at reading a few of my netgalley books and Shadow of Night will be the first. I'm really looking forward to reading this book, I surprisingly loved the first book despite not liking paranormal books.

  1. I love the idea of a different sort of fantasy book so think that I might have to check out Prince of Thorns...plus...that cover really grabs my eye.

  6. Your description of the main character of Prince of Thorns kind of makes me want to read it. And my wife's a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, too.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  9. I'm a fan of Sparks, too! I just loved A Walk to Remember and Dear John. I've read several books from him but paused for a while. I found new genres to read--which I'm enjoying--and I'm not sure when to come back. I haven't read Best of Me yet.

    So, you like fantasy? Same here. Have you read Iron Fey series? It's really good! :)

    Btw, thanks for droppin by my WWW! And oh, I'm a new follower! :))

  11. I am incredibly jealous you get to read 'Shadow of Night' - NetGalley shot me down with that one! :( sniffff haha.
    So far I would definitely recommend 'Daughter of Smoke and Bone'!

  12. Oh, I totally get what you're saying about Nicholas Sparks' books. I do the same thing with his stuff - either as a light read after something really heavy or in preparation for the total mindblowing plotline I'm about to read!

    All of them look really great!

    Thanks for stopping by my WWW!
