WWW Wednesday (catch up post!)

Wow it has been the longest time since my last post – and I am so, so sorry for disappearing! I want to dive straight back into blogging with a WWW!

What I’m currently reading:

City of Heavenly Fire, by Cassandra Clare

The last chapter of the Mortal Instruments Series! I am 100 pages in, and I love the fast paced nature of this book. There have already been new characters introduced, as well as lots of links to previous events and people. I am hooked onto the story, though some of Clare’s writing quirks kind of annoy me. I will write more on this in my spoiler-free review, after I finish the book!

A Clash of Kings, by George R. R. Martin

A Game of Thrones, the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire series, and the prequel to this book, was pretty amazing. It took me a very long time to read, as my interest faltered and spiked randomly, but the last 200-300 pages had me reading well into the night. I can see a similar thing happening with this book – I have been stuck on the first 50 pages for about a month now, even though I am very interested in the story. George R. R. Martin writes very well, but the slow paced nature isn’t working for me at the moment.

Let It Snow, by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

Exactly what it looks like: a cutesy romantic teen novel! Three different cute stories written by three different authors – but they all intervene and seeing the end result of this is really, here it is again: cute! It’s a light, quick read – but nothing special, in my opinion. I do thank this book for gifting me with the knowledge of teacup pigs! 🙂

What I think I’ll read next:

Life Without Limits, by Nick Vujicic

This book was given to me by a friend, and as I’ve heard of Nick Vujicic and his motivational work, I was quite excited to read his autobiography. I started it, and quickly realised this book is written with a heavy bias for the Christian religion and God. It gets quite overwhelming when nearly every single page mentions God, His plan and blessings. I will finish this novel, though, as I am truly fascinated with Vujicic’s optimism in life.

Again, sorry for the disappearance – hopefully I’ll be posting regularly now!

Happy reading,

Insurgent, by Veronica Roth 

Loved, loved, loved the first book in the series, Divergent, as you can tell in my review of it! I can tell this will be a good sequel; hopefully it doesn’t disappoint!

The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James 

I am reading this for the next school year. I like reading my school novels a few times, so first I’ll read it for myself, then once or twice for school. Sounds like a good psychological thriller!

Evan Burl and the Falling, by Justin Blaney

This book was alright. It had quite a few things that I didn’t like, but also a couple of aspects which I enjoyed. Look out for my review, which will be up soon!

Allegiant, by Veronica Roth

The last instalment in the Divergent trilogy! I’m sure once I finish Insurgent, I won’t be able to wait to start this one!

I’d love to know what you’re reading this fine spring/summer! Link your WWW Wednesday post in the comments section!

Happy reading,
