The three Ws are:

DorothyMustDie

“No matter how tough you think you are, there are certain things that just get to you, and they’re usually the little things. The ones you don’t expect.”

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. I picked Dorothy Must die up last week and, I admit, I have only read about three chapters of it. It really does seem like a good book but I’ve hit a slump and just don’t think anything will pull me in right now. Maybe I’ll put this one down for a while and try again another time. I don’t want to read it and dislike it just because I’m in funk, you know?

What did you recently finish reading?

“In the darkness, two shadows, reaching through the hopeless, heavy dusk. Their hands meet, and light spills in a flood like a hundred golden urns pouring out of the sun.”

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. This book is the reason for my reading slump. I picked it up expecting epic battles, the clashing of swords, and a noble and heroic death. What I got was a love story. If you are into love stories it would be a wonderful book, I think, but I’m not. With the name “Achilles” in the title I just expected something very different than the book I got and it was such a disappointment.

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

AndIDarken

“On our wedding night,” she said, “I will cut out your tongue and swallow it. Then both tongues that spoke our marriage vows will belong to me, and I will be wed only to myself. You will most likely choke to death on your own blood, which will be unfortunate, but I will be both husband and wife and therefore not a widow to be pitied.”

And I Darken by Kiersten White . Look at that quote. Look at it. How can I resist? Even Emily May liked it and if you’ve spent any time at all on Goodreads you’ve seen Emily’s reviews and know she is a bit picky. I’ll be picking this book up from the library later today and am really looking forward to getting started on it. Hopefully it gets me out of my reading funk because, at this rate, I’m not going to have a review to put up this week. Yikes!

That is it for WWW Wednesday! Feel free to leave a link to your own WWW posts in the comments and have a fabulous day.

    1. I decided to shelve Dorothy Must Die for a while. I know when I’m in the mood it will appeal but right now I’m Ms. Cranky Pants and don’t want to ruin a perfectly good book with my black cloud. I need a book where people are brutally murdered or something. Hah.
