WWW Wednesday | 02/12/2020


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 Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevado just this morning. This was really quick read, due mostly to the fact that's it's written in verse and it's written so beautifully as well. I really did enjoy this book so much, the two characters of Camino and Yahaira had really distinct voices and just watching them discover each other and develop their sisterly bond was lovely to read. There are so many quotable lines in here as well and it had great examples of strong women and sisterhood. 

What are you currently reading?

Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater is my current physical read. I've literally only read the prologue so I don't have many thoughts at the minute. I'm glad we're getting a new perspective in this one but I'm not sure if that means there's going to be 5+ POV's which could be a bit much. I'm glad I'm finishing this series off (well, other then the companion novel) and hopefully it will be a quick read. 

What do you think you'll read next?

The Girl in the Tower (Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden is what I'll be picking up physically after Forever. After reading The Bear and the Nightingale last month, I'm really excited to move onto the second book. The first one was a five star so I'm excited but apprehensive about this one. I'm also reading this book for mini polarthon which is being held this weekend so I'm going to try and smash it out in three days!
Orphaned and cast out as a witch by her village, Vasya’s options are few: resign herself to life in a convent, or allow her older sister to make her a match with a Moscovite prince. Both doom her to life in a tower, cut off from the vast world she longs to explore. So instead she chooses adventure, disguising herself as a boy and riding her horse into the woods. When a battle with some bandits who have been terrorizing the countryside earns her the admiration of the Grand Prince of Moscow, she must carefully guard the secret of her gender to remain in his good graces—even as she realizes his kingdom is under threat from mysterious forces only she will be able to stop.

Fox 8 by George Saunders will be my next ebook pick. This is super short, only around 50 pages, so I'll read it all in one go either today or tomorrow. This for the Reindeer Readathon to read a book with a fox on the cover and I thought it would be a quick one to get done early in the month.    
Fox 8 has always been known as the daydreamer in his pack, the one his fellow foxes regarded with a knowing snort and a roll of the eyes. That is, until Fox 8 develops a unique skill: He teaches himself to speak “Yuman” by hiding in the bushes outside a house and listening to children’s bedtime stories. The power of language fuels his abundant curiosity about people—even after “danjer” arrives in the form of a new shopping mall that cuts off his food supply, sending Fox 8 on a harrowing quest to help save his pack.
