Hello, My Lovely Bookworms!

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is now hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

It consists of answering these three questions:

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

I am currently reading Plot Twist by Bethany Turner. It is an arc I have from Netgalley and honestly, I’m not feeling it. It’s too dramatic and not enough romance although it tries to be a rom-com but without the two only meeting once so far.

I am listening to The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson. I wouldn’t say it’s bad but I’m also not loving it either. I am still going to continue on as I am not very far into it.

Today I am also going to be starting The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon. I am doing it as a buddy read and looking forward to it!

  • Bone Crier’s Dawn (Bone Grace #2) by Kathryn Purdie 3 stars
  • My Epic Spring Break (Up) by Kristin Rockaway (audiobook) 3.5 stars

If I continue on with my feelings for The Kiss of Deception then I will pick up The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) by Mary E. Pearson.

I will read another arc and it’s called Faking Reality by Sara Fujimura.

I am reading The Roommate by Rosie Danan as a buddy read with a friend from bookstagram. I am only 24% into it but it’s definitely that I can tell isn’t for me. I’ll have a review for this one within the week when I finish it.

I am still listening to The Dragon Republic (The Poppy War #2) by R.F. Kuang. I am 73% of the way through it and should finish it today while I clean my house.

I am also working on Gilded Serpent (Dark Shores #3) by Danielle L. Jensen. I haven’t got very far since Sunday as the last two days have been quite busy.

None since my Weekly Update

My next read will be Bone Crier’s Dawn by Kathryn Purdie which I have in from the library. Since this is just a duology I will be able to write another series off my list!

The audiobook I will listen to next is My Epic Spring Break (Up) by Kristin Rockaway.

Hello, My Lovely Bookworms!

It consists of answering these three questions:

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

I am listening to The Dragon Republic (The Poppy War #2) by R.F. Kuang. I am trying to listen to at least 18% a day so I can finish in the next 5 days since it is so long!

My current ebook is an arc called The Return of the Sorceress by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. I haven’t started it yet but it shouldn’t take long to get through because I believe it is a novella.

The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang (audiobook) 5 stars

Tarnished Empire (Dark Shores #0.5) by Danielle L. Jensen 5 stars

Bridge of Souls (Cassidy Blake #3) by Victoria Schwab 4 stars

I haven’t decided if I want to read or listen to The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R.F. Kuang. I may read it just to be able to jot down things since I haven’t read it before.

My next read will be Gilded Serpent (Dark Shores #3) by Danielle L. Jensen. I am really excited to start it after the cliffhanger of the prequel!

I am doing a buddy read with someone on bookstagram for Shipped by Angie Hockman. I am about 30% through and its good so far but I do have a few complaints, ha. I will be having a review up sometime after I finish!

The audiobook for The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang is in from the library and they had the others available so I will be binging the trilogy in 21 days! Haha, wish me luck!

I will be starting Tarnished Empire by Danielle L. Jensen today. I am reading it before I dive into Gilded Serpent. Looking forward to continuing this series!

These Hollow Vows by Lexi Ryan (arc): 1 Star

Son of the Storm by Suyi Davies Okungbowa (arc): 4 Stars

Nyxia Uprising (The Nyxia Triad #3) by Scott Reintgen (audiobook): 3 Stars

I will continue on with the audiobook for The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang.

I will most likely be reading Bridge of Souls by Victoria Schwab since I have the ebook in from the library.

Hello, My Lovely Bookworms!

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is now hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

It consists of answering these three questions:

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

I am halfway through my current arc which is Heart and Seoul by Jen Frederick. It is pretty fast-paced and there are characters I like more than others but I am enjoying it. It deals with a lot of topics that have come up recently about being Asian in America and also what it’s like to be adopted to a white family as well.

I will be starting to listen to Nyxia Uprising (The Nyxia Triad #3) by Scott Reintgen today. It is the last in the trilogy so it will be one more series off my list!

My next audiobook will be The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. I have read this one as well as the second book before but would like a refresher before going on to the final book. I loved the books the first time around and I am sure I will like them again.

The next book I will read is Fae Hunter by Sarah K.L. Wilson. It is another series I have yet to finish but will restart from the beginning.

Once I finish both of the “reading next” series I will only have three more series to get through and then I will be caught up with the ones that are completed!

I am listening to Nyxia Unleashed (Nyxia Triad #2) by Scott Reintgen. It hasn’t fully grasped my attention yet but I am curious about the planet and the people that inhabit it.

I am not too far into my next arc which is Southern Sun, Northern Star (Glass Alliance #3) by Joanna Hathaway. This is the last book in the trilogy and I am not looking forward to letting these characters go!

I am slowly still working my way through Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

I will be continuing on listening to Nyxia Uprising (Nyxia Triad #3) by Scott Reintgen. I guess we will see how the ending goes!

The next book I will be reading is an arc called Heart and Seoul by Jen Frederick. I am looking forward to it. After this one, I only have one more arc for May and one for April.

I am slowly still working my way through Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

I and still listening to Nyxia by Scott Reintgen. I am 62% through it. The plot is finally picking up but at times it also feels like other ya sci-fi books I have read. It’s not bad but I don’t love it. 🤷‍♀️

I am going to be starting The Hollow Inside by Brooke Lauren Davis. It’s an earc I have which I featured yesterday in Goodreads Monday.

If I like Nyxia enough, I will continue on to book two otherwise I will find something else to listen to.

I will be reading these two arcs. I have a couple left for April but they are longer and I am trying to get shorter ones done since I have 22 to get through, haha.

  • Heart and Seoul by Jen Frederick (arc/ebook)
  • The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He (arc/ebook)

Currently Reading:

I am slowly still working my way through Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Classics are just so hard and this one doesn’t make sense at time so I have had to google things, haha.

I will be starting to listen to Nyxia by Scott Reintgen. I haven’t read/listen to anything in the sci-fi genre recently so I am looking forward to the change. I have only read a MG by this specific author and liked it so we will see!

I will be reading We are the Fire by Sam Taylor. I have seen some mixed reviews about it so I am worried about starting it. Hopefully it will turn out okay!

Recently Finished:

Reading Next:

If I like Nyxia I will continue on to book two otherwise I will find something else to listen to.

My next book will be another arc called The Prison Healer by Lynette Noni. I am really looking forward to this one and I’m crossing my fingers I will love it!

After that, I am eyeing Hello, Cruel Heart by Maureen Johnson. I love the author and Disney so hopefully it will be a win-win.

Currently Reading:

I just started listening to Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. It’s okay so far but the way they talk about young women is pretty bleh, heh. I don’t know if it will be my thing.

I am reading A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas. I kind of stopped reading A Pho Love Story by Loan Le for now because I felt like I was going to miss out if I didn’t start Acosf, ha. I’ll go back to the other when I am done.

Recently Finished:

Reading Next:

I am not sure what I will be reading next. All of my library books will be finished and I guess I will go to arcs but I may pick up a book from KU I have been eyeing. Who knows!

Currently Reading:

I am going to be starting Just the Two of Us #2 by Ryu Hyang (arc). I enjoyed the first book and gave it 4 stars although it’s rating on Goodreads is on the low side. 🤷‍♀️

I am still listening to Night Spinner by Addie Thorley. I have been watching anime while doing stuff on my computer (blogging and gaming) because I have a second screen!

I am still reading Pirates Past Noon (Magic Tree House #3) by Mary Pop Osborne to my daughter!

Recently Finished:

Reading Next:

I didn’t get to this yet so I will be reading Sky Breaker (Night Spinner #2) by Addie Thorley next.

I am still not sure what my next audiobook will be but it will probably be something on my “Books I own TBR” which is my list of all audiobooks I can rent from the library of books I own, haha.
