WWW Wednesday 12/23/15
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?
Girl of Myth and Legend by Giselle Simlett
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In-Between by Jennifer E. Smith
I’m still working my way through Girl of Myth and Legend and To Kill a Mockingbird. I’m enjoying Girl of Myth and Legend. It’s interesting, so far. We’re almost done with To Kill A Mockingbird in class, and we’ll be moving on to poetry after that. I’m almost done with Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In-Between.
What did you recently finish reading?
Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch
My full review is here. I could tell that Sara Raasch is really using this book to set up for the third book, so this book was rather political making it a little slow m
oving. That being said, I still really liked it, but it did take a bit longer to read.
What do you think you’ll read next?

Still looking forward to reading these:
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.
Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.
Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.
A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.
This book has been on my TBR and sitting on my bookshelf for awhile. Since Ten Thousand Skies Above You, the sequel, came out in November this year, I thought I’d read this one.
Blood and Salt by Kim Liggett
Romeo and Juliet meets Children of the Corn in this one-of-a-kind romantic horror.
“When you fall in love, you will carve out your heart and throw it into the deepest ocean. You will be all in—blood and salt.”
These are the last words Ash Larkin hears before her mother returns to the spiritual commune she escaped long ago. But when Ash follows her to Quivira, Kansas, something sinister and ancient waits among the rustling cornstalks of this village lost to time.
Ash is plagued by memories of her ancestor, Katia, which harken back to the town’s history of unrequited love and murder, alchemy and immortality. Charming traditions soon give way to a string of gruesome deaths, and Ash feels drawn to Dane, a forbidden boy with secrets of his own.
As the community prepares for a ceremony five hundred years in the making, Ash must fight not only to save her mother, but herself—and discover the truth about Quivira before it’s too late. Before she’s all in—blood and salt.
I can’t wait to hear what the rest of you are reading!! Let me know in the comments.
