WWW Wednesday | My Bookish Week – April 15th

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

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

By some weird twist of fate – this week is the week of YA Fantasy. And, next week will be all Mysteries.

The week started off very well with The Wrongful Death and hopefully the next two books will be as amazing❤️

Book Description

Unwanted betrothals, assassination attempts, and a battle for the crown converge in Danielle L. Jensen’s Dark Skies, a new series starter set in the universe of the YA fantasy Sarah J. Maas called “everything I look for in a fantasy novel.”

Lydia is a scholar, but books are her downfall when she meddles in the plots of the most powerful man in the Celendor Empire. Her life in danger, she flees west to the far side of the Endless Seas and finds herself entangled in a foreign war where her burgeoning powers are sought by both sides.

Killian is Marked by the God of War, but his gifts fail him when the realm under the dominion of the Corrupter invades Mudamora. Disgraced, he swears his sword to the kingdom’s only hope: the crown princess. But the choice sees him caught up in a web of political intrigue that will put his oath – and his heart – to the test.

With Mudamora falling beneath the armies of the Corrupter, Lydia and Killian strike a bargain to save those they love most—but it is a bargain with unintended and disastrous consequences. Truths are revealed, birthrights claimed, and loyalties questioned—all while a menace deadlier and more far-reaching than they realize sweeps across the world.

My Thoughts

Even if you don’t like fantasy, you have to admit these covers are so beautiful. I don’t for the life of me remember requesting this from Tor Teen but I’m not complaining at all because it looks incredible.

Book Description

Book 3 of 5

An unfortunate chain of events makes Philip responsible for the untimely death of the school bully Sam – the Devil’s original choice for an heir.

Philip must return to Hell to find Sam and bring him back to life, so that fate can be restored. But trouble is stirring in Lucifer’s kingdom and not even Philip can imagine the strange and dark journey that awaits him.

A journey that will take him through ancient underworlds and all the way to Paradise.

My Thoughts

Wow! I can’t believe how it ended. The fact that the fourth one isn’t in this post is only because I have agreed to do way too many book reviews for the next few weeks.

Book Description

When you are a member of Britain’s first team of wizard spies, every mission might be your last. But as the dawning of the 20th century draws ever nearer, magic grows weak. Violectric Dampening, the clash of man-made electricity with the Gifts of magekind, threatens M.I.’s existence. And if that isn’t enough, they’ve now been discharged from their own government. Obsolete. Distrusted.

And now hunted by one of their own.

Myra Wetherby has always feared her so-called fits, strange visions of people and places that she cannot explain. It is the emotional manipulation, however, a strange empathic connection to those around her, which threatens her very sanity. A danger to her family, Myra runs away, falling straight into the hands of the newly ousted Magical Intelligence team. Who just so happen to need an ability like hers.

Which makes Myra one of them . . . whether she likes it or not.

My Thoughts

I think the concept is intriguing – I’m just curious how the delivery will be.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Your current read certainly looks and sounds intriguing. But it sounds also rather longish. Do you feel like it’s rather drawn out?
    Once again I don’t know any of your books but I hope you have fun. Happy reading! 🙂

    1. Page-wise – it is on the longer side but the chapters are short so it feels kind of quick. I’m just starting it, but I’ll see.

    1. That would be interesting. It has a classic Greek/Roman influence. I think I’d like to see that with a steampunk twist 😊
