WWW Wednesdays #70 – February 3rd

WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly bookish meme formally hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm, and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words. This meme consists of answering the following three questions:

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

For now I will be participating monthly instead of weekly.


What am I currently reading?

37173847. sy475

I am currently reading Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett, the first book in The Founders Trilogy. I’m buddy reading this one with my good friend Emily @embuhleeliest. We’re a bit over halfway done with this one and IT’S SO GOOD. I’ve been wanting to read this one for awhile now and I’m glad I finally started it. Making it a buddy read is only making the experience better! The characters, the world building, the humor, the plot. So far I’m digging ALL OF IT. And the pace. So much happens each week I’m reading it (we’re currently reading six chapters a week) that it’s hard to put it down! It’s quickly becoming one of my favorites. Maybe I’ll actually make a review on it when we’re done. If you haven’t read this one yet, so far I highly recommend it! I am also currently reading Dark Around the Edges by Cari Z. This is a M/M paranormal romance that revolves around a private security firm agent, Devon, who is a human/incubus hybrid and his sometimes partner (in both the field and the bed), Rio. The book focuses on their hunt for a dangerous summoner, which then leads them to the demon behind a number of antagonistic events. I’m about 70% finished and have been thoroughly enjoying it!


What did I recently finish reading?

Coming Up for Air

I recently finished reading Coming Up for Air by Amanda Meuwissen, a M/M fantasy romance involving mermaids. Overall I haven’t’ read many books that focus on mermaids but, after reading the synopsis, this one intrigued me! At first I got sort of a The Little Mermaid vibe, but there were so many unique things about the characters and storyline that the comparisons quickly fell away. In a good way though. The lore surrounding mermaids in this book was different and more interesting than anything else I’ve read about them and I liked the fact that the main character had ties to the mafia – it made the plot more interesting than just your typical romance. Recently I also finished reading One Bite With a Vampire by Louisa Masters, the second book in the Hidden Species series. This is another M/M paranormal romance series with some fun characters and a different take on certain titles and species. Check out the first book, Demons Do It Better, if you’re interested!


What do I think I’ll read next?

After Foundryside, Emily and I are going to start the first book in the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire. We’ve both had this book on our TBR list for years now and are excited to experience reading it together! I’m not too sure about Emily, but this will be my first time reading something from Brandon Sanderson and I’ve only heard good things so my expectations may be slightly biased. Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint! After I finish up Dark Around the Edges, I’ll probably read The Wolf at Bay by Charlie Adhara, the second book in the Big Bad Wolf series, another M/M paranormal romance. I read the first book awhile ago and the rest of the series recently became available through my local library. I’ve also been slowly rereading The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. He released TWO books last year and I bought them both immediately, so I had decided to reread the series in order to prepare. It’s been a bit slow going but I’ll get there eventually.
