Hello! Today I wanted to do another WWW Wednesday – the first one of 2022! I currently have a bunch of posts in the drafting stage, and the one that I thought would be ready to go isn’t quite reading yet. So, I thought I would quickly put together a WWW Wednesday and let you all know how my reading has been going. I always seem to have a strong start to the year, although this year has been my slowest start for quite a few years, but that is okay. I have already read three books (one book and two short stories) and I am really excited about my reading year! As always, WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.
There are just three questions to answer:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
As always, I am currently reading multiple books! The first one is Restless Slumber by K.J. Sutton which is the second books in the Fortuna Sworn series. I am really enjoying this one. I am listening to it on audiobook, and I really like the narrator – I feel like there are times where the narrator of an audiobook either makes or breaks the book, and this one is definitely making it for me. I also really like being in a new fantasy setting. It is quite a wild story but I am really enjoying it so far. I am not too far into the second book, but the first book left me with so many questions that I need to read the second one now.
I am also rereading House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas. It is the first book in the Crescent City series, and the second instalment is coming out next year. The first time I read this book, I listened to the audiobook and followed along with the book at the same time. For my reread, however, I wanted to read it physically. If you’ve seen my Reading Goals for 2022 post, you might remember that it is my goal to read more books physically this year than I did last year. I thought I would start with a book that I already know I love, and a story that I am already familiar with, but cannot remember everything. I am also trying my hand at annotating with post it notes. I have never really tried doing this – well aside from the books I had to for university. I am really enjoying it so far. I have just finished part one, and I have already tabbed so many aspects of the book. I cannot wait for book two. I need it now.
What did you recently finish reading?
As you can probably guess from the first question, I just finished reading Fortuna Sworn by K.J. Sutton – it was actually my first read of 2022! I always like to think of my first read as how it is going to set the year for me, so I think it is a good sign that my first read of 2022 was a five star read. As I said before, I am so excited for the rest of the series. I think book 4 just came out, and I am in a Discord group where they discuss many books, and one of those is the Fortuna Sworn series and I am terrified of seeing a spoiler. I have to read it quickly if I am going to keep avoiding the spoilers!
What do you think you’ll read next?
Aside from continuing the Fortuna Sworn series, I will hopefully be reading some books that I have requested from NetGalley. Again, part of my reading goals for 2022 was to read more books physically or by e-book, and to review more books, so I went on a little, wild requesting books adventure that I may or may not be regretting. Regretting only because I will have to review all of these and my NetGalley percentage is already really bad. But some of the ones that I have just been approved for are:
- Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May
- The Final Srtife by Saara El-Arifi
- Silver to the Heart by Brien Feathers
- Lockdown on London Lane by Beth Reekles
- The Heart of the Deal by Lindsay MacMillan
I am so excited about all of these books and can’t wait to read these. Some I am hoping to get my review up by next month; the other ones I will work with the release date for them.
So, if you can’t tell, I am very excited about this fresh new reading year and I just want to devour all of the books all at once. Let me know in the comments what you are currently reading, and how is your reading year so far?
