WWW Wednesday [5]

WWW Wednesdays are hosted by Should Be Reading. To play along, just answer the following three questions: (As always, all titles are linked to their corresponding Goodreads pages)

  • What are you currently reading?Afterworlds

I’m currently reading Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld. It’s pretty great so far. I haven’t gotten that far into it yet as I’ve been a little busy (or relaxing with arts and crafts like yesterday), but I hope to read more of it today. I really like the alternating chapters between real life and Darcy’s fantasy world in her novel. So cool.

  • What did you recently finish reading?

The Young ElitesI finished reading Marie Lu’s The Young Elites a few days ago and reviewed it on Monday. I thought it was absolutely incredible. I was super impressed by my first Lu book. Her world building was amazing and I cannot wait for the next book. The Young Elites is one of my favorite books I’ve read this year. I gave it a 9.5, which should tell you how much I loved it.

  • What do you think you’ll read next?IMG_20141101_104327

I’m not sure. I had this awesome haul last week, and I’m not sure what I want to read next from it. What do you guys think? Want to recommend something to me? Let me know in the comments! 🙂 Here are the titles I want to choose from: My True Love Gave to Me, Black Ice, Belzharor Messenger of Fear.

 

Stacking the Shelves: New YA Library Books!

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

I only do this meme sporadically when I have something I’m really excited about, and this week I do. Pretty much all of the YA books I ordered for my library for the month of October came in this past week, and of course, I checked most of them out.

I already read Marie Lu’s The Young Elites (review soon), but these are three more I checked out. I also bought My True Love Gave to Me, which is a collection of holiday themed short stories by some awesome authors (Stephanie Perkins, Jenny Han, David Levithan, etc.). I was going to wait until closer to the holidays, but after seeing some glowing reviews of the stories, I decided that I couldn’t wait, so I headed to Target and bought it. I’m looking forward to starting it soon.
