WWW Wednesday 7/20/16
This is my weekly WWW Wednesday post in which I answer three simple questions. It is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Go check her out, her blog is great! Each week I will answer the following three questions about what is happening in my book world.
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you are going to read next?
So, here we go.
What are you currently reading?
**A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin
I’m excited to jump back into this series now that I’m having some Game of Thrones withdrawal with the latest season of it having ended a few weeks ago.
**The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa Rose Ivy
I decided to pick up an NA romance to balance out all the heaviness of A Clash of Kings, so we’ll see how I like it. I don’t typically read a lot of NA, but I thought I’d try.
What did you recently finish reading?
**The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
I ended up really liking this book in the end. I still didn’t like it as much as the first one. The Wrath and the Dawn pulled you in so quickly. Check out what I thought about it in my review.
**Wrecked by Maria Padian
I could not put this one down. While it is about some heavy content, a rape case on a college campus, it was very good. This one comes out Oct. 4, so my review for it will be up just before it’s release date. Keep on the lookout for it.
What do you think you’ll read next?

**Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.
The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass–and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.
**Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.
Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.
Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena’s world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie… and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.
