Hey guys! Before I get into this post I just want to celebrate my blog being a year old today! On 24th May 2016 I created this blog and published my first post and my first review which was Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare! Looking back that review is really terrible and my reviews have vastly improved since then as I’ve grown more confident sharing my writing online. When I first started this blog I only thought I’d last a few months before I quit but I can happily say I am still here and don’t plan on going anywhere! I love blogging so much! It’s so fun and I love talking to other bloggers who are passionate about reading! Thank you so much for sticking with me and I hope you continue to do so!
Today I am sharing with you all another WWW Wednesday post! WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.
To take part, all you have to do is answer the following questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher: I recently finished the TV show and I was surprised to find that I actually really liked it. The acting was superb and it was a very addicting show to watch. It gripped me from start to finish and it was heartbreaking watching it all unfold. I wasn’t planning on reading the book mainly because I heard it romanticises and glorifies suicide. But then NetGalley had ebooks for request so I thought why not give it a try and if I don’t like it, it doesn’t really matter since I didn’t pay for it. So far it’s good but not very gripping, everything is going by really fast but the characters, especially Clay, aren’t as interesting as they are in the TV show. I definitely prefer the TV show but I will finish this book because it’s really easy to read and isn’t very long.
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare: I finally have this beautiful and glorious book in my hands! Make that THREE copies in my hand! I pre-ordered the Waterstone’s paperback and hardback and then popped into WHSmith yesterday and purchased their edition! So three copies of Lady Midnight and three copies of Lord of Shadows. No regrets! Guys, this book is so BEAUTIFUL! It’s just mind-blowingly gorgeous. The spine is so pretty, spine beauty right there. I’m not very far in yet because I’m trying to finish Thirteen Reasons Why first but I’m so excited to get fully invested in the story! How have we waited over a year for this?! Its been torture at times.
