WWW Wednesday is a weekly event where you share (1) What you’re currently reading, (2) What you recently finished reading, and (3) What you think you’ll read next. Originally hosted Taking On A World Of Words.
What’s up, guys? I know, I know. I skipped out on last Wednesday, but I’m willing to make that up to y’all with a LOADED WWW Wednesday post.
What are you currently reading?
Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?
Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.
The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?
Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.
FINALLY. I have finally got to the book that readers (especially South Indian ones) have been talking about for ages. I’m a South Indian myself, and currently I’m about a 1/4 through, and while it’s pretty entertaining, cute, and easy to read… I do have a few things to complain about. I let you know my full thoughts soon after I finish it!
What have you recently finished reading?
The queen has returned.
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…
She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.
The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.
AHHHH I’m LOVING this series. The character development just keeps building and building, the plot is constantly thickening, and the events that take place in this book are just… incredibly unpredictable and shocking. The writing has improved immensely since Throne Of Glass, and the relationships between the characters (Aelin x Rowan, Lysandra x Aelin, Aedion!!!) are so realistic and intriguing because you truly feel like you know these people. Besides a few complaints (which mostly have to do with everyone being up Aelin’s ass, but what else is new?), I hereby declare that Sarah J. Mass has officially got her hold on me. Empire Of Storms, where you at?
They come first.
My vision was growing dimmer, the blackness and ghosts closing in. I swore it was like I could hear Robert whispering in my ear: The world of the dead won’t give you up a second time. Just before the light completely vanished, I saw Dimitri’s face join Lissa’s. I wanted to smile. I decided then that if the two people I loved most were safe, I could leave this world.
The dead could finally have me.
Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules. She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir’s Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardians to come.
Now the law has finally caught up with Rose – for a crime she didn’t even commit. She’s in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She’ll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.
But the clock on Rose’s life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back…and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your whole life is about saving others, who will save you?
Join Rose, Dimitri, Adrian, and Lissa in Last Sacrifice, the epic, unforgettable finale to Richelle Mead’s international #1 bestselling Vampire Academy series.
It’s the FINALE guys!! I have to say though, as conclusions go, this one was kind of underwhelming. I enjoyed Rose’s dynamics with the rest of the characters and it was fairly mysterious and entertaining enough. I definitely liked Lissa and Sydney’s characters better (especially because their character development always felt stunted to me), and Adrian certainly improved too. However, the plot progressed at the pace of a snail and the crescendo and buildup I was waiting for… never really came. It didn’t have the epic feel I wanted it to have, but I’m still interested in this world. Since I’m liking Sydney a lot more now, I’ll definitely check out the Bloodlines series soon.
What will you be reading next?
The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius as war looms on the horizon. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t.
With her heart sworn to the warrior-prince by her side, and her fealty pledged to the people she is determined to save, Aelin will delve into the depths of her power to protect those she loves. But as monsters emerge from the horrors of the past, and dark forces become poised to claim her world, the only chance for salvation will lie in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
In this breathtaking fifth installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, Aelin will have to choose what—and who—to sacrifice if she’s to keep the world of Erilea from breaking apart.
I don’t care if it’s too soon, I will get my hands on this book or I will die trying. It’s only been about a week since Queen Of Shadows, but I’m already facing withdrawals from being apart from my babies for so long. And when I do get my hands on it, it better not disappoint!
Thanks for viewing, guys! What are you guys currently reading and what do you plan on reading next? Leave me a comment below! 🙂
