The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I finished – sort of – The Ever After yesterday. There are so many cool things about it but there are also so many things that I didn’t like at all. I’m not really sure what to do with this book review-wise. I’m in a quandary over it, for sure.
I’m starting Bone Canyon today which is completely switching genres, as it is a mystery/thriller. The first book in the series was my Prime First Reads pick a while back and I thought, hmmm…when I saw book 2 on NetGalley. I had hoped to read book 1 and 2 together but I may just end up reading book 2 for now. Luckily, with mysteries, you don’t usually need to read book 1 first of even at all. I’m really curious if I will like it but I think there is definitely a good chance.
And, what I am most looking forward to this week is the third book in The Vine Witch trilogy entitled, The Conjurer. All three of those books have such beautiful covers and I have loved the story to date.
The week of Christmas and the week of New Year’s, I will just be posting the reviews I have scheduled, so my next WWW post will not be until 1/6/2021. That is going to be one full post 😊
So, that’s my reading week. What does yours look like?

A beguiling novel of revenge, deliverance, and a powerful sisterhood of magic by the Washington Post bestselling author of The Vine Witch and The Glamourist.
Sidra didn’t murder her husband. Yet even a jinni can’t wish away a wrongful imprisonment. Determined to prove her innocence, she returns to her adopted home—a French village renowned for its perfume witches—with her friends Elena and Yvette by her side. Here is where Sidra’s true destiny awaits, but danger also lurks in the village’s narrow lanes.
On her trail is Jamra, another jinni, who’s after more than revenge for the murder of his brother. He also seeks vengeance for the indignities inflicted on jinn by mortals over the centuries. When he learns of an ancient relic capable of unleashing chaos on the world, and that the weapon is in the hands of his murderous sister-in-law, he vows to destroy Sidra to get it.
Relying on a sisterhood of magic, a mysteriously faithful dog, and a second-rate sorcerer, Sidra defends herself using the village’s greatest asset: its perfume. It’s as beguiling a lure as it is a formidable shield. But is it enough for Sidra to protect herself and those she loves from powers yet to be released?

Amanda Hocking, the New York Times bestselling author of The Kanin Chronicles, returns to the magical world of the Trylle Trilogy with The Ever After, the final novel in The Omte Origins arc.
Ulla Tulin has lost a month of her life. Her journey to learn who her parents are has brought her to the attention of the Älvolk sect―and a man claiming to be her father. But instead of a long lost family reunion, Ulla has forgotten her time there, and fears something terrible happened.
The Älvolk released Ulla alive for one reason only, to exchange her for a rare flower with mystical properties. Determined to break her amnesia, Ulla risks her life against a dark enchantment capable of killing her to remember the Älvolk’s secrets―to use the flower as part of an incantation that will open the bridge to Alfheim, the First City.
But opening the bridge will unleash a menagerie of monstrous creatures upon Earth that will consume everything in their path. Knowing she may lose Pan Soriano, the love of her life, Ulla nevertheless gathers an army of Trylle to stand with her and defend humanity as well as her own kind. And it is Ulla’s very heritage that holds the key to victory.
