background

WWW Wednesday is a weekly MEME hosted by Taking on a World of Words. I got the idea from Socially Awkward Bookworm. The three W’s are these:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

Recently Finished:

I’ve been reading lots of great YA Fantasy, lately! Last week, I posted my review of Keira Drake’s lyrical debut, The Continenta YA Alternative History that will be published in early January 2017.

I also recently finished an awesome YA Japanese Urban Fantasy, A Mortal Song by Megan Crewe. The Fantastic Flying Book Club’s book tour of A Mortal Song will be stopping here, at Christy Luis Reviews: Speculative Fiction (Mostly) tomorrow morning, September 22nd. Currently, the FFBC is hosting a ~* GIVEAWAY *~ of Asian swag, here on my blog’s “Current Giveaways” tab. Stop by tomorrow to read my review and enter the giveway! [Review now available!]

I resisted The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer for a long time, but my library teens finally convinced me to give it a try. I just finished the audiobook of Cinder and will be posting my review next week. Cinder is a futuristic YA SF/F retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale wherein “Cinder” is a cyborg.

Currently Reading:

I’m 40% of the way through Lian Hearn’s Emperor of the Eight Islands, which was published in April by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. The next three books in the series were also published this year, as the publisher tries out the book binge model on this new Asian adult fantasy series. I should be posting the review either next week or the week after.

I’m also listening to the audiobook of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer and reading Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn #4, The Alloy of Law, for my bedtime reading. (Don’t you just love the cover for The Alloy of Law? Except that Wayne doesn’t carry guns, of course. Still. Pure awesomeness.) Those reviews should be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

TBR Next:

Forsaken Skies by D. Nolan Clark, published on September 6th by Orbit, will be my next read. Orbit puts out some good stuff, so I though I’d given this adult sci-fi a shot.

Remade by Andrea Phillips, the second installment in a serial YA Dystopia published today, Sept 21st, 2016, by Serial Box Publishing. I loved the first installment, so I’m looking forward to reading #2!

The Eterna Files by Leanna Renee Hieber. Tor did a giveaway on their blog for The Eterna Files, Eterna and Omega (The Eterna Files #2), & Hieber’s earlier book, The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Mercy Parker, and somehow I won! I’m pretty excited to review all three of these because they sound awesome.

So, anything strike your fancy? What have you been reading? What’s on your TBR? Share links to your WWW or bookshelf roundup in the comments; I’d love to check them out!

  1. Forsaken Skies is on my TBR next too! I have the audio edition though. I’ve heard it’s a pretty fun and easy read, which is good because it looks like a long one!

      Ooh, the audio, cool! I can’t wait to read your review 😀 Yes, it does look rather long, doesn’t it? Now I’m really curious about it. Good thing it’s up next!
