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 am a few chapters into The Ballerinas, which is one of my five-star predictions. I want to make my way through that list and this one was calling out to me! I love anything that shows the dark side of ballet and I am loving the pace of this one so far. I have a feeling I will fly through it! I have heard that it is more of a character study than it is a mystery, so I am glad that I am going into it with the right expectations.
I read The Tropic of Serpents, the second book in the Memoirs of Lady Trent series, and very much enjoyed it. It is much more political than the first one, which I actually appreciate. I love the memoir-style that these books are written in and it is certainly a unique take on dragons! If you want to hear more about my thoughts, check out our discord. I will also be sharing live stream details soon!
Wow. Blood Scion is one of the most intense books I have ever read. It is truly brutal but so incredible. Deborah Falaye doesn’t let you breathe for even a second. I was not prepared for it to make me so emotional. I have never needed a sequel so badly in my entire life. I keep checking Goodreads to see if it has been announced, even though Blood Scion just came out! I have read many interviews with Deborah Falaye at this point and she did a lot of research into child soldiers, so keep in mind that that is the kind of content to expect in this book.
After reading Blood Scion, I needed something joyful, so I decided to listen to A Walk in the Park and it was perfect. It is a quick audiobook and an adorable romance between two people who were both promised the same dog at the shelter and decide to split custody. Obviously, they end up having a ton of chemistry! Because this is so quick, it doesn’t have a lot of the classic tropes we see in romance, like miscommunication or the third act breakup, so it was refreshing. If you have Audible Plus, you can listen to this for free!
I have very much been mood reading lately, so who knows what I will feel once I finish The Ballerinas, but something is telling me that now is the time to finally read Salt to the Sea. I have read Pachinko and Blood Scion this month, so why not add another heartbreaker to the list.

Can’t wait to read Blood Scion now!!
I can’t stop thinking about it!
I’ve just purchased the first of the Lady Trent’s memoirs series – would love to hear your thoughts on the series during the livestream 🙂
Yay! I will definitely share all of the details with you! I thought the first book was really good. I love the way the story is told- so unique!
Enjoy your reading!
I´m currently reading The Call of the Bone Ships!
Ohh how are you enjoying the series so far?
Mm for me it is a bit of a middle of the road series. I liked it, I do want to know what will happen, but I don´t like the writing, and not a huge fan of the MC
I loved Salt to the Sea!! I read it when it came out and it still sticks with me. Have some tissues ready!!
I’m preparing myself for it!!
I read The Ballerina’s a while ago, and you’re right, it’s certainly a character driven story, and very good.
I’m now 30 chapters in and so enjoying it. I think marketing it as a thriller does it disservice because people go into it with the wrong expectations!
I tried to get the Ballerinas book but the link on Edelweiss just died out. It sounds good. I hope it lives up to your expectations.
I finished it this morning!! It was an interesting character study for sure. I would recommend it but it’s definitely not a thriller. Thinking about writing a full review!
I didn’t think it was a thriller, but I look forward to hearing more about what you think of it.
Definitely not a thriller at all!
Looking forward to your review of Ballerinas! Dark ballet stories are always entertaining. Enjoy!
I finished this morning and think I will post a full review. A lot to unpacked but I really did enjoy it!
