WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I have not been reading much the last few days as I just have not had the time, but from what I have read of The Jasmine Throne I know I am going to love it. I was immediately drawn into Tasha Suri’s writing style and I cannot wait until I can finally take the time to sink into the story itself.
I am listening to My Contrary Mary on audio for a buddy read on Instagram and I am having so much fun with it. I have only read the first book in the Lady Janies series but I had so much fun with that one and I am definitely getting the same feeling from the first book in Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadow’s new series that follows famous Marys! I have always been fascinated by Mary Queen of Scots (Did anyone else love Reign!?), so I am excited to see what the authors do with her story.
Claire Fuller is one of my favourite authors! I have yet to be disappointed by any of her work. While I think Bitter Orange will always be my favourite of hers, I think Unsettled Ground is a close second. I appreciated that we are following older protagonists and I am always drawn to stories about siblings. This was definitely a difficult read in terms of subject matter, but Claire Fuller is brilliant at what she does! I would be thrilled if this won The Women’s Prize.
Falling is one of my most anticipated July releases, so I was thrilled to be sent an ALC from Libro.fm. It is not often that I am this excited for a thriller, but the premise of a pilot having to choose between saving his family or a flight full of people is so intense and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out. I have been hearing good things!
I am not sure what book I will read next physically, because I think The Jasmine Throne will take me awhile, but I am thinking either Ace of Spades or Accidentally Engaged!

My Contrary Mary is one of my anticipated releases and gosh why am I on a book buying ban and going to focus on the books I already own! Enjoy it for me too please 😀
Haha I should be doing that too! I let you know how it is in the end but it’s living up to my expectations so far!
Happy to hear that! 😀
Good luck with Falling. I’ve heard so many great things about that one.
Enjoy your reading! The Jasmine Throne sounds so good!
I am loving it!
glad to know you’re enjoying my contrary mary! i’ve only read my lady jane also, and don’t really care for the other two janes. mary, however, has fascinated me since i studied her in school many years ago. i can’t wait to read it
I think you may like this one. It is interesting and fun so far!
there’s no requirements to finish the jane series? (should probably check first haha)
I’ve heard loads of great things about ‘Falling’ – I look forward to seeing what you think of it. My WWW post is here: https://wordywitterings.com/2021/07/07/www-wednesday-wednesday-7th-july-2021/
I read the prologue of the jasmine throne and despite the short length I was really drawn into it
The prologue really is compelling. I was instantly drawn to the writing style!
Ahhh I really want to read the Jasmine Throne! It sounds so fantastic, and can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it 😍
Claire Fuller’s other books are on my TBR after reading Unsettled Ground, so promising to see she’s a fave! I also really enjoyed that book.
I never read thrillers but I’m seeing Falling on blogs everywhere, so I might have to check it out!
Currently reading North by Shakespeare, by Michael Blanding. Excellent reporting. True story about a “rogue scholar” who’s discoveries rattle the cages of Shakespeare historians and literary experts.
