WWW Wednesday [6] – Floating Boys, comics, and indecision

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?Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly

I am currently reading Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn’t Fly by Stephen Graham Jones and Paul Tremblay. It’s an interesting book so far. I’m intrigued by the idea of a boy who floats and a girl who can’t. I do want to know what’s going to happen. I’m about 55% of the way through, and I plan to finish it today/tomorrow.

  • Superior Iron ManWhat did you recently finish reading?

Yesterday I read a bunch of new comics. Here’s what I read: Wytches #2, Annihilator #1, Saga #24, Gotham Academy #2, Superior Iron Man #1, The Walking Dead #134, Wild’s End #3, and Memetic #1. I enjoyed all of them. Superior Iron Man was my first Iron Man comic and I can’t wait to read more. I love how British Wild’s End is. Wytches is weird and creepy and awesome. Annihilator was…interesting. It’s Grant Morrison so you know it’s weird. The Walking Dead was great. Duh. Memetic is about a killer meme. A meme that kills, so yeah. Cool.

  • What do you think you’ll read next?Black Ice

I can’t decide if I’m going to start Becca Fitzpatrick’s new book Black Ice or Michael Grant’s new book Messenger of Fear. Both are due back at the library on the same day… um, today. So yeah. Which would you recommend I read first??

What did you read in the past week? What are you going to read next?

  • 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.
