Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses. Please, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. So, let’s get to it!”
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I was fortunate enough to be given an ARC of Chain of Iron. I cried when I opened the package and out tumbled the book. I’ve been reading Clare for over ten years now, so it’s an absolute privilege and honour to be entrusted with an advance copy.
As of writing this, I’m more than 50% through and am LOVING it. Everything about Chain of Iron works: the characters, the plot, the ANGST!! I cannot get enough.
Where the Crawdads Sing is disappointing. I’m certainly in the minority when it comes to this novel considering the 4.47 rating on Goodreads based on over a million reviews. Where the Crawdads Sing is an overhyped coming of age story full of clichés and tropes.
One of the only positive aspects about Where the Crawdads Sing is Owens’ writing. It’s beautiful and poetic and clearly describes the beauty of the marsh and surrounding areas. I could showcase quote after quote to illustrate the beauty of Owens’ writing easily.
What about you? What are your three Ws this Wednesday? Have you read any of the books mentioned above?
