WWW Wednesday | 17-March-21

Welcome! I’ve decided today is meme day! I know last week I did Waiting on Wednesday but decided that I will do the two, because I have more to say bi-monthly than every week.

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted over at Taking on a World of Words by Sam. To join, you just have to answer three simple questions…

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

So, without further ado, let’s talk about books!

What are you currently reading?

Sun-Daughters, Sea-Daughters is a short novella (that I’ll probably finish today) with an amazing sci-fi setting where humans have been genetically modified to adapt to living in other planets. I picked this up because I saw it announced as a Little Mermaid Space Opera retelling on someone’s anticipated books list and I couldn’t let that pass. While the worldbuilding is really captivating, I’m sad to say I’m not really into the story. I do like its approach to gender fluidity.

The kingdom of Copper is the second book in The daevabad trilogy, an arabic-inspired political fantasy set in the Middle East and Central Asia with a lot of djinn mythology. If the first book introduced us to the amazing worldbuilding, the characters and the stakes, the second one drops us in the middle of a Daveabad’s city that’s not flaring well, with the five-years time jump being a decision I applaud because the characters feel more mature and sure than in the first one, but with a lot of plots still in development from the results of the (show-stopping) ending of the previous book. I’m halfway into it so I’ll probably finish it before next week.

The atlas six it’s an urban fantasy book that’s been all the rage on Twitter this past weeks and I can understand why. This is what one would call a hidden gem. In a world where a relatively small percentage of the population can do magic, medeian are powerful magic users, ranging from a variety of powers, who have capitalized from it and receive magic education at college. Every year, six of them are chosen to be initialized into the secrets of The Alexandrian Society, the caretakers of ancient knowledge and holders of the most important positions in society. I’ve just finished reading the introductions of the characters, and let me tell you, other than gripping, the pace and the prose make it a really easy read.

What did you recently finish reading?

Ah, yes. I am a reader who reads and as thus I do read books. Like this one, which is the only one I’ve read this month yet. Let’s pray this changes today.

Act your age, Eve Brown is the last book from Talia Hibbert’s Brown sisters books and I am really sad to say goodbye to this family. I think this one was my favorite for a lot of reasons, but I also adored the other two so it’s hard to pick. I won’t say a lot because the review is coming soon, but Eve is a character I’ve loved getting to know, that’s for sure.

PD: Dear brain, please stop singing Act my age.

What do you think you’ll read next?

My priority is finishing the An ember in the ashes series but I also wanted to finish The daevabad trilogy and read The rage of dragons. Only one of these three things is happening this month I guess.
