The three Ws are:

What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

Serpent & Dove (Serpent & Dove #1) by Shelby Mahurin – People have been raving about this book nonstop since it came out. Witches, witch. hunters, dark and grim cover…how could I resist? Currently I am just over 100 pages in and the story certainly isn’t what I expected. I don’t really like any of the characters and all of the male characters have done little more than infuriate me.

Uprooted by Naomi Novik – I read Spinning Silver by Novik earlier this year and absolutely loved it! So, of course, I picked up Uprooted because most reviews gushed that Uprooted was even better than Spinning Silver. So far, I do not agree. I love Novik’s writing style, it really gets its teeth in me, but the actual story isn’t doing anything for me.

What did you recently finish reading?

House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig – Look, I know a lot of people love this book but it was just a massive disappointment for me. So many useless scenes, useless characters, pointless themes, and a very poorly done story flow.

Capturing the Devil (Stalking Jack the Ripper #4) by Kerri Maniscalco – And here is another book that was huge let down. I only sort of enjoyed the first three books in this series but I had such hope for one supposed to be based around H. H. Holmes because he is fascinating in a morbid, violent kind of way. Of course, the story was actually only about Audrey and Thomas’s romance and I wish that I had just skipped this entire series.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Beautiful (The Beautiful #1) by Renee Ahdieh – This book was delivered to me yesterday and it is sitting on my shelf calling to me. Some of my earliest reads in the adult genre were Anne Rice’s Lestat novels and I long for more vampires in New Orleans. I absolutely cannot wait to dive into this story!

I have had a lot of trouble lately with WordPress freezing, crashing, and not saving my posts. I’m not sure what the problem is because I haven’t heard anyone else talking about this issues so hopefully I can get it worked out soon to share more bookish content with you all.

I hope everyone has a lovely day and happy reading.

    1. Honest opinion? The fourth book is not worth it. The third book was the high point in the series. Some people have loved it and more power to them but you better be in it for the romance aspect if you move on to Capturing the Devil.
