WWW: November 29th

Hi Munchworms!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words where you answer three fixed questions.

What are you currently reading?

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #2)

What did you recently finish reading?

Songlines (The Sentinels of Eden, #1)This Heart of MineDaughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)Poets, Artists, Lovers: A NovelA Match Made By Chloe

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

Okay, I DNF’d The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August. I started reading this months ago and I simply can’t get into it anymore. Conversations are often too scientific for my liking with all the discussions towards time travelling going on. Sentences are ridiculously long at times and… I just can’t get into it, okay? This is my second DNF this year, so I think I’m still good on that front, haha.

What are you reading next?

I’m STILL trying to… focus on the eARC’s and author requests, but Sunday I’ll be starting a buddyread for Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas and, of course, Diverse December is almost upon us!

These are the eARC’s that I still have to get to…

Sweet Dreams Baby (Love at the Chocolate Shop #12)Paris AdriftIf Only for a Time
Swan SongThe Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1)Almost Invincible (The White Knight & Black Valentine Series Book 3)
The Fragile Thread of HopeJames: Witch-HunterContainment (Winter Solstice, #2)

So, how’s your week been? Done a lot of reading, or rather took some time to celebrate Thanksgiving elaborately? With way too much munches, I reckon?

  1. Well, I read 8 books today according to Goodreads. To be fair, 2 of them were comics and 6 of them were children’s books, but still. lol. I feel super productive at the moment.

    Hmm…my most finished book was Avatar: the Last Airbender: The Lost Adventures by Bryan Konietzko. My current reads are My Hero Academia, Vol 2 by Kohei Horikoshi, and The Runaways by Brian K Vaughan. And my next read is probably Dear Martin by Nic Stone.

    1. Haha, I can imagine you feeling productive that way! It’s the same when you only read one book, but it was a monster like IT from Stephen King. I probably wouldn’t feel very productive seeing the one book, on the other hand.. The page count would have the opposite effect!

      I’m sooo jealous! Still haven’t gotten my hands on a copy of Dear Martin. *sigh*


    2. One day, I’ll read it.. One day, haha. Maybe during April when I’ll be focusing on King-books…

      Right now I just want to finish the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, but I keep getting distracted by fluffy romances..


    3. Pretty sure Under the Dome is on my shelf. The Colorado Kid isn’t, but I think I’m going to wait until I read my current King-books before buying more, haha.
      I really do want to read Under the Dome at some point. I’ve been hiding from the series just because I want to read the book first.

    4. The Colorado Kid is a novella, and it is really interesting because it is just two characters telling the third character about an unsolved murder. So by the time they’ve told the story, you’re left in the same position as the characters, unsure of what actually happened.

    5. Oh my goodness. I was addicted to that show. That’s based on a King-novel?! I had no clue!! On the other hand, that was back when I barely had time to read so I’m using that as an excuse not to feel guilty about it, haha.
      Okay, now I want to read this novel after all.

    1. Haha, I know right?! I do set myself a DNF-rule though. I have to be at least 100 pages in before I can decide to DNF it. That way I feel like I really gave it a decent shot and, honestly, a lot of books have picked up by then as well.
      Just a matter of staying honest with myself. I’d rather be reading books I actually enjoy than struggle and fight with one just for the sake of finishing it.

    2. Honestly, if you feel like you’ve given it a fair shot, you won’t even feel guilty about it. Especially if the next book you pick up is so amazing that you’re secretly even more happy that you decided to DNF the previous one, haha.
      There are barely enough reading hours in a week as it is! No need to waste them on fighting books.

    3. *Nodding* That’d be fair, right? I also have this friend from Bookstagram who keeps on telling me “Lili, Life is too short. Spend it on better books.” hahaha… His reasoning is almost like yours. 🙂

  2. I did read a lot, I think! I finished Jane Austen last Sunday and then I picked up two books and almost done with one book. Wow, you only DNFed two books??That’s pretty commendable!

    1. Then you definitely did a good job at reading as well! I ordered Mansfield Park on Monday so I think I might be heading towards reading my first ever classic voluntarily, haha.
      Now that I think about it, I DNF’d three! But the third one was so bad that I didn’t even want it on my Goodreads-shelf?

    2. Hahahaha! So bad that you didn’t even want it on your GR shelf… yep, that happens sometimes. I have to admit I did it several times!!
