It’s time for this week’s WWW Wednesdays, hosted by Should Be Reading blog (head over and check them out!).

This link up asks three questions:

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

This week may be just a little bit boring… because I’ve fallen down a Veronica Roth rabbit hole. Yep, that’s right:

What am I currently reading?

So here’s a tragic story. Sunday. The day of rest. The day when any normal book nerd is curled up somewhere cosy with a cuppa, a blanket and a lovely novel. But there’s me, sprawled nearly upside down, bright light in my eyes, mouth wedged uncomfortably open, drill whining into my teeth. For two. And. A. Half. Hours. Obviously after that kind of tortuous ordeal, a girl needs a new book. This was my choice. I love Maggie on Twitter, and I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about the Shiver series. But I decided to start here. Excellent so far.

What did I recently finish reading?

Oh boy. I polished off the first two books in this series in a matter of a few days. Then I got stuck. I liked these books, but I’m scared of Allegiant. Also, tbh, I felt kind of exhausted after the first two!

What do I think I’ll be reading next? 

So far I’m really liking The Raven Boys. If it keeps up I’ll definitely want to read the second book right away! Anyone know if this is going to be a series or trilogy? I’m really hoping there will be at least three books. Great premise and writing so far!

What’re your WWWs this week? //<![CDATA[ var sc_project=10144299; var sc_invisible=1; var sc_security="82f610c9"; var scJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://secure." : "http://www."); document.write("”); //]]>

    They're both very good (so far, I'm only about a third of the way through The Raven Boys) but quite different. Divergent is very fast paced, lots of action and suspense and a dystopian setting. Raven Boys is so far pretty slow, but not in a bad way. I find that Maggie's writing is quite beautiful – I've found myself highlighting phrases that I loved, which I don't do often. The characters are a bit more complex and more time is spent on developing them. So I think it depends if you're in the mood for fast-paced action or a more introspective story!
