WWW Wednesday | 19/06/2019

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words that highlights three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished The Life and Death Parade by Eliza Wass which despite having no expectations towards this book - it just ended up being a massive disappointment. I picked this up in the library cause I liked the sound of the brief synopsis and it was also quite short, around 250 pages, so thought it would be a quick read. It follows Kitty who is attempting to find ways to communicate with her dead boyfriend and she meets a psychic who says he can help. I didn't end up liking any of the characters, the plot just didn't interest me at all and yeah, wasn't a big fan of this one.

What are you currently reading?

Stolen by Lucy Christopher, which I have actually read before but it was like nine years ago and so I wanted to re-read it and see how I felt about it now.
This was actually one of my random picks from my TBR box for the month and so I was pretty happy that I picked this one out. If you don't know, it's about a young girl who is kidnapped and taken to the Australian outback and it's basically written in the form of a letter to her captor detailing what happened. Although I know how the book ends already, I am really enjoying revisiting this book.

What do you think you'll read next?

I'm planning on picking up The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth which is the second book in the Carve the Mark duology. I didn't completely love the first book, I think I gave it 3 stars, but I spotted this in the library and the first book intrigued me enough to pick it up. I know these books have divided a lot of readers but I'm just happy that I'm gonna actually finish a fantasy series for once!

The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.

Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.

As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may—or may not—be her father. For Akos, it could mean giving his own. In a stunning twist, the two will discover how fate defines their lives in ways most unexpected.
