WWW Wednesday | 17/03/2021

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

What are you currently reading?

What do you think you'll read next?

What did you recently finish reading?

I ended up really quite enjoying The One by John Marrs, more then I probably thought I would. I wihizzed through it in two days as I hadn't realised that the new Netflix series was based on it but I found it so gripping and twisty. It wasn't perfect but still a creative thriller/sci-fi/romance mash up. My full review is going up tomorrow if you want to know more.

What are you currently reading?

Continuing on with the Grishaverse readalong with the second book, Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. Ashamedly, I've fallen quite a bit behind over the last couple of days so I'm going to have to try and make sure I finish it by the end of the week. I'm not too far in but I'm already liking it and suprised at how quickly things have already happened.

I'm also a couple of pages in to Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid which is a library book that I need to get read before I have to return it. It's been pretty interesting so far and i'm intrigued to see how the events foretold in the synopsis unfold. 

What do you think you'll read next?

I'd like to try and squeeze in Among the Beasts and Briars by Ashley Poston in before the end of the month. I was thrilled when this was the November Owlcrate book and I've been looking forward to it ever since. I always mention how I love fairytale-esque books so I have high hopes, I mean there's a talking fox so major bonus points already!
Cerys is safe in the kingdom of Aloriya.

Here there are no droughts, disease, or famine, and peace is everlasting. It has been this way for hundreds of years, since the first king made a bargain with the Lady who ruled the forest that borders the kingdom. But as Aloriya prospered, the woods grew dark, cursed, and forbidden. Cerys knows this all too well: when she was young, she barely escaped as the woods killed her friends and her mother. Now Cerys carries a small bit of the curse—the magic—in her blood, a reminder of the day she lost everything. The most danger she faces now, as a gardener’s daughter, is the annoying fox who stalks the royal gardens and won’t leave her alone.

As a new queen is crowned, however, things long hidden in the woods descend on the kingdom itself. Cerys is forced on the run, her only companions the small fox from the garden, a strange and powerful bear, and the magic in her veins. It’s up to her to find the legendary Lady of the Wilds and beg for a way to save her home. But the road is darker and more dangerous than she knows, and as secrets from the past are uncovered amid the teeth and roots of the forest, it’s going to take everything she has just to survive.
