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?
Currently Reading: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle, book 2)
This is only my second time reading the Raven Cycle so I’m noticing a lot of little things I didn’t get to enjoy the first time around and that’s always fun.
My favorite thing about The Dream Thieves is how much more we get to learn about Ronan. Despite his proximity to Kavinsky, Ronan is definitely my favorite Raven Boy.
I’m also still technically reading Crashed by Robin Wasserman. And by technically reading I mean, sitting with the book near me, but not actually reading it because I hit a slump and I just want to read things I already know I like.
Recently Finished: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle, book 1)
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the way Maggie writes dialogue! I consider myself a pretty snarky person (I’d say other people in my life would agree), but I’ll never achieve the perfect sass so easily tossed around between characters in this series. The only drawback is that as good at Maggie is at writing characters I love, she’s also very good at writing characters I can’t do anything but hate! (Looking at you, Barrington Whelk, you massive creep!)
I read The Raven Boys directly on the heels of Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Wings and Ruin, which was so good it left me in a good enough mood that I was able to start crawling out of my most recent reading slump!
Reading Next: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle, book 3)
One of the things that happens when I read a series is that everything not in the first book and the last book tends to blend a little bit, so I’m actually not 100% sure of every detail even though I’ve read this once before. So I get the experience of rereading a book I know I liked, but also some surprise, which I’m looking forward to in this case especially.
