WWW Wednesdays [9/7/16]

Hello everyone and welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Taking on a Wolrd of Words! šŸ™‚

The three W’s are:Ā 

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

ooooo

Currently:

I mentioned in my post yesterdayĀ that I was readingĀ Emperor’s BladesĀ by Brian Stavely. I started it this weekend, after much urging from the Mister (who is a big fan of the series), and am really enjoying it. I also have been reading through theĀ FablesĀ series for the last year or so, and while I’m not always in love with what they do, I think it’s a very interesting and entertaining series. I love fairy tales and am a real sucker for anything involving them!

Finished:

I just finished upĀ Bands of MourningĀ ignoring it for way too long! It was a good read and I liked it better than the previous Mistborn book (Shadows of Self). I’m a huge Sanderson fan so I’m always happy diving into the worlds he creates.

Up Next:

I’m not the best at planning on what to read next. It’s usually just me staring at a shelf and picking something out at random, but I’ve been wanting to read these two pretty bad, so I think they’re a safe bet. I’ve hadĀ The Queen of the TearlingĀ on my shelf for a very long time and I’ve always thought it was such a pretty looking book! As far as theĀ Last Wish, the Mister and I have been playing through the Witcher games (starting with the first one) and it’s a pretty in-depth world. I’ve heard good things about the novels, which came out first!

What are you reading? If you’re doing WWW Wednesday, too, please leave me a link to yours in the comments. šŸ˜€

The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Friday Memes

Happy Friday everyone! I bet you are all as happy as I am that Friday is finally here. To start off this day, I’m participating in two different blog memes. They complement each other so well, it just had to happen!

The first is The Friday 56Ā from Freda’s Voice! The rules are:

1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda’s most recent Friday 56 post.

The second is Book Beginnings from Rose City Reader!Ā The rules are:

Share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the authorā€™s name.
The book I selected for this Friday isĀ Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I’ve been wanting to read this book for ages (I feel like I’m the only one who hasn’t šŸ˜› ). So, I’m starting it today!
Book Beginning:

After a year of slavery in the Salt Mines of Endovier, Celaena Sardothien was accustomed to being escorted everywhere in shackles and at sword-point.

56:

Instead of reading, she could perhaps use the pianoforte, but… well, it had been a while, and she wasn’t sure she could endure the sounds of her own clumsy playing. She traced a finger over a splotch of fuchsia silk on her dress. All those books, with no one to read them.

These sentences definitely want to make me read the book right away—mission accomplished! šŸ˜€ What do you guys think? Do you have a 56 or book beginning?
