WWW Wednesday: October 4, 2017

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at Should be Reading and revived on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three W’s!

The Three Ws are:

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


13260225Currently Reading:  Sons from Afar (The Tillerman Cycle, book 6) by Cynthia Voigt
I didn’t actually intend to do more on the Tillerman Cycle books before finishing the Lynburn Legacy, but I got like borderline slumpy, so I figured going for books I know I enjoy would be better. We’ll see if it actually helps.

Sons from Afar was actually one of my least favorite in the seven book series, but since I haven’t read it in a while, I’m wondering if my opinion will change any.

That being said, it’s still just as amazing as the rest of The Tillerman Cycle.

Unmade (The Lynburn Legacy, book 3) by Sarah Rees Brennan
I’m not very far into this one yet, but I anticipate enjoying it just as much as the other two. This book isn’t the reason for my current slump-ish-ness.

So far I’ve spent the beginning of this book worrying about Jared and annoyed at Kami’s mother. Like if I stop and really consider things, I can understand why she’s reacting the way she is to everything, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating to read about. I think maybe I just don’t like her at all…

And as usual, I’m still working my way through Persuasion by Jane Austen, and I’m ahead of schedule so that’s nice.

13260124Recently Finished:  Come A Stranger (The Tillerman Cycle, book 5) by Cynthia Voigt
Like I mentioned earlier, I took a little break from Unmade to read on the Tillerman Cycle because I was slumpy. I think it might have been a book hangover from Dreams of Gods & Monsters.

This book is really special to me. I mean I love all the Tillerman books, but this one was one of those perfect storm sort of books. It dealt with some things pretty personal to me at exactly the right time in my life. I don’t think I’d have dealt with some things nearly as well without Mina’s perspective in my mind from reading this book. If someone were to ask me for coming-of-age recommendations, this would be a top one for sure.

13260222Reading Next:  Seventeen Against the Dealer (The Tillerman Cycle, book 7) by Cynthia Voigt
I love how synchronistic it is that the series begins and ends with Dicey.

I look forward to reading this one again with the change in perspective that being older gives; I haven’t read it since I was a teenager.

After this one I’ve got literally no idea what I’m going to read so if anyone has a suggestion I’d love it.
