WWW wednesday #3 in 2018


happy wednesday my lovelies! ❤ how are you all doing? i pinched a nerv in my lower back yesterday, while i wanted to get my cat. so stupid! sitting is impossible, standing is bearable. i hate when that happens, because it takes me days to get out of it. oh well, what can you do? 😀 how was your week so far? hope you’re healthy and happy!


www wednesday is hosted by sam on Taking on a World of Words. everyone can participate in answering the three questions below and posting a link on sams website or just answer the questions on her post, if you do not have a blog.

the three questions are:

1.) What are you currently reading?
2.) What did you recently finish reading?
3.) What do you think you’ll read next?




title: the assassin’s blade
author: sarah j. maas
progress: 98/437 pages
status: my wonderful friend adrienne from @darque dreamer reads and i finally picked up another book in the “throne of glass” series. we decided to go for the novellas, before continuing with “queen of shadows”. i liked the first story, but i was surprised that celeana was already 16. i thought this book would start with her being younger. i also think, that it’s not really information heavy. i mean, if you read this before the series, i think it can get confused. i have the background of the first three books in the series, so it makes more sense. but we’ll see what happens in the upcoming novellas.



title: miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children
author: ransom riggs
progress: 100/382 pages
status: i haven’t continued much in this book, because i wasn’t in the biggest reading mood the last week. but i am sure, i’ll get back to it soon.



title: voyager
author: diana gabaldon
progress: 72%
status: i made huge progess in this very, very big book 😀 i’ve been walking a lot on the weekend, so i listened to it all the time. i still really enjoy it 🙂




title: the inexplicable logic of my life
author: benjamin alire sáenz
rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
status: this book just crushed me. it was so heavy and the topics in that book really made me think so much. it was though provoking at all times and very, very emotional. i don’t think that this book is for everybody. it has to do with grief a lot. but it’s also beautiful because there are amazing characters, vicente being my favorite. i wrote down a lot of quotes again, but in the end i didn’t love it as much as i did “aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe”.



title: hard times
author: charles dickens
rating: ⭐⭐
thoughts: this dickens novel was nothing for me. i didn’t like the characters at all. i couldn’t connect with a single one of them. i thought the story was boring and nothing really happened. it was just not for me. i loved the writing though, charles dickens is awesome! and i kept going which made me give this book two stars. but very generous two stars.




i’m at a point where i have absolutely no idea what i will pick up next. i told you, that this could happen this year. i’ll finish my other books and then we’ll see where the mood goes haha 😀


what are your three www? let me know in the comments! 🙂

  1. Pinched nerve? Not fun. I’m sorry. Here’s hoping it’s all better quickly!
    I’m currently reading a book called “Fender” and listening to “Napoleon Bonaparte: A Life.” They’re both good so far! I anticipate each getting a high final rating.
    Ah, Dickens… his writing is wonderful, but I too sometimes would struggle with connecting to characters. Been meaning to give “A Tale of Two Cities” another try, since my first pass at it I was perhaps too young to appreciate it. 😛

      • Ah, don’t be scared. I’ve heard it’s great. I was supposed to read it the summer between 8th and 9th grade, and there are few things I hate more than homework that is assigned outside of the school year. SO….that really, REALLY soured me towards the book. I got a chapter or two in, and just had such a crummy attitude about the whole thing that I /may/ have just sparknoted the rest of it. 😛
        It’s one I want to read now. Don’t be discouraged by my adolescent ire.

      • It’s one I really do need to try again. I just sometimes feel bad when I didn’t like something that was good. That was my experience with The Hobbit. I read it twice without liking it at all (kinda weird, I know). The third time, I liked it a lot.

      • It was! I think that the big difference was the Peter Jackson movies, which is odd because it seems like most people really don’t like them. But for me, they finally gave a face and character to each of the dwarves in Thorin’s Company, something that Tolkien didn’t bother to do at all (and perhaps couldn’t do in so few pages).
        Plus, once you have Martin Freeman in mind as Bilbo Baggins…. say what you will about those movies, but Martin Freeman did an absolutely outstanding job.


  2. i’m currently reading a buuuunch of books (need to break that habit), have just finished a couple sarah dessen books for my reread extravaganzaaaaa, and will probably just be doing school reading this weekend 😦
