Unexpected Readathon!

This weekend I am excited to announce that I will be participating in my first readathon! Thats right, years in this community and a lifetime of book loving and I’ve never participated in an organized readathon.

I always love reading other people’s posts about the ones they have participated in but taking part in one myself seemed daunting. The one I have chosen is Unexpected Readathon hosted by Destiny at Howling Libraries.

WWW Wednesday – November 6

WWWWednesday

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words and was formerly hosted by A Daily Rhythm. It is open for anyone to participate, even without a blog you can comment on Sam’s post with your own answers. It is a great way to share what you’ve been reading! All you have to do is answer three questions and share a link to your blog in the comments section of Sam’s blog.

The three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

Once upon a time, in a land long since burned to ash, there lived a young princess who loved her kingdom …

Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass #7) by Sarah J. MaasI’m nearly done with this book and, honestly, I don’t want it to end. This has easily been the best of the Throne of Glass franchise by a large margin. It is like Maas noticed our complaints about A Court of Wings and Ruin and actually listened because this is not crap at all. I love it.

What did you recently finish reading?

There comes a certain point with a hope or a dream, when you either give it up or give up everything else. And if you choose the dream, if you keep on going, then you can never quit, because it’s all you are.

Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer #2) by Laini TaylorI will be the first to admit that this book was disappointing. Maybe I just had high expectations because Strange the Dreamer was so fantastic but Muse let me down hard. It was…okay. Heck, it was good. But to be the followup for the masterpiece that was Strange, I expected, even needed, more.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Mortal Word (The Invisible Library #5) by Genevieve CogmanI got an eARC of this book just before Kingdom of Ash came out and am very much looking forward to reading it. Cogman is a fantastic writer and I have enjoyed every book of her Invisible Library series. I can’t wait to jump back in with Irene and company and see what mischief and mayhem they get into this time.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope you all have a glorious day and that you pick up a book that you love today.

June Wrap Up

JUNEWRAPUP

With the year half over, I’m feeling a little melancholy. I started the year with a list of goals and aspirations and just don’t feel like I’m making enough progress. Here is to the second half of the year and greater productivity and positivity.

In the meantime, I have read far more books this year so far than I had expected to. Initially, my Goodreads goal was set at 35 which I surpassed so I bumped it up to 45. Currently, I am at 40 books completed and will most likely bump up my Goodreads goals again. Either way, this is what Literary Weaponry was up to in June!
