WWW Wednesday – 24 February 2021

Hello Fellow Readers,

I decided to trial this meme on a weekly basis, as many of you do. I thought it would be a great way for me to provide more contents on my blog and also, I wanted to join the fun. I love reading your WWW posts and I wanted to give it a try as well.

How it works:

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and the purpose is to share what I have been reading recently.

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?

Currently reading:

A Court of Silver Flames – Sarah J. Maas

Nesta Archeron has always been prickly-proud, swift to anger, and slow to forgive. And ever since being forced into the Cauldron and becoming High Fae against her will, she’s struggled to find a place for herself within the strange, deadly world she inhabits. Worse, she can’t seem to move past the horrors of the war with Hybern and all she lost in it.

The one person who ignites her temper more than any other is Cassian, the battle-scarred warrior whose position in Rhysand and Feyre’s Night Court keeps him constantly in Nesta’s orbit. But her temper isn’t the only thing Cassian ignites. The fire between them is undeniable, and only burns hotter as they are forced into close quarters with each other.

Meanwhile, the treacherous human queens who returned to the Continent during the last war have forged a dangerous new alliance, threatening the fragile peace that has settled over the realms. And the key to halting them might very well rely on Cassian and Nesta facing their haunting pasts.

Against the sweeping backdrop of a world seared by war and plagued with uncertainty, Nesta and Cassian battle monsters from within and without as they search for acceptance-and healing-in each other’s arms.

Recently finished:

The Stolen Kingdom – Jillian Boehme

For a hundred years, the once-prosperous kingdom of Perin Faye has suffered under the rule of the greedy and power-hungry Thungrave kings.

Maralyth Graylaern, a cacao farmer’s daughter, has no idea her hidden magical power is proof of a secret bloodline and claim to the throne.

Alac Thungrave, the king’s second son, has always been uncomfortable with his position as the spare heir—and the dark, stolen magic that comes with ruling.

When Maralyth becomes embroiled in a plot to murder the royal family and seize the throne, a cat-and-mouse chase ensues in an adventure of dark magic, court intrigue, and forbidden love.

Next Read:

Threadneedle – Cari Thomas

Within the boroughs of London, nestled among its streets, hides another city, filled with magic.

Magic is the first sin. It must be bound.

Ever since Anna can remember, her aunt has warned her of the dangers of magic. She has taught her to fear how it twists and knots and turns into something dark and deadly.

It was, after all, magic that killed her parents and left her in her aunt’s care. It’s why she has been protected from the magical world and, in one year’s time, what little magic she has will be bound. She will join her aunt alongside the other Binders who believe magic is a sin not to be used, but denied. Only one more year and she will be free of the curse of magic, her aunt’s teachings and the disappointment of the little she is capable of.


Nothing – and no one – could change her mind before then. Could it? 

You know I am a sucker for Sarah J. Maas the queen. I told myself I would read A Court of Silver Flames only when it was out on paperback. That’s because I simply didn’t love Nesta, I thought I could wait. I also hated the new covers, so I swore an oath before my pile of TBR that I would wait to read it… and I failed. After all the reviews around in the blogosphere, I bought the ebook version and I am going through this beast. 750+ pages! WOW! I hate work so much now!! Last weekend I read The Stolen Kingdom, which was quite good and I will post the review tomorrow. My next read will be Threadneedle! I got this e-arc ages ago and it’s time to give it a go.

What are you reading this week? I can’t wait to read your WWW Wednesday posts!

  2. I am so torn on whether to reread the series before getting to A Court of Silver Flames. I read the physical copies the first time and have the audio books now. I saw that they narrator of the audio books changes halfway through the series, so not sure how that will go.

      1. Oh just slicing my thumb open and ending up going to hospital! Not been able to type so much because my thumbs been bandaged up but I’ve swapped it for a plaster now! Nightmare haha! So glad you are loving it. I genuinely wasn’t sure when I started it if I could get on board with a book about Nesta… I was excited but unsure. Now I am her biggest fan! I swear I loved her story and her journey. It was amazing! x
