WWW Wednesday – March 31, 2021

WWW Wednesday is a bookish meme run by Sam@Taking on a World of Words.

It asks:

What are you currently reading?

The Light of the Midnight Stars by Rena Rossner

The Light of the Midnight Stars by Rena Rossner. This is a Jewish-inspired fantasy that takes place in the 14th century. I’ve just started it and already feeling a little overwhelmed because I’m not exactly familiar with the Jewish religion or the history, but I am loving the writing. It’s about three sisters who each have a different magical ability, so I’m really excited to read more.

Finding Home by Kate Field

Finding Home by Kate Field. Another one I’ve just started, but it’s really flying by. This is one of those quick romantic reads, but, after what I’ve been reading lately, it’s most welcome! So far it’s about a woman down on her luck unexpectedly encountering a wealthy family who so sweetly take her into their fold.


What did you recently finish reading?

The Bookstore on the Beach by Brenda Novak

The Bookstore on the Beach by Brenda Novak. This one made me feel so hot and cold that I don’t even really know what to think of it. I do wish I had read this one before I did Top 5 Saturday: Love Triangles because this one has not 1 but 2! I actually found the romance part of this book to be uninteresting. Sweet, but just not my cup of tea. I loved the main character’s mother and daughter, though. They had some incredible stories and I wish the book had focused more on them.

Malice by Heather Walter

Malice by Heather Walter. This is another one I feel a little hot and cold about. A retelling of Sleeping Beauty, it uses Disney’s version as a template. I loved that it was a villain story, but I also felt it went a little too far and felt far too constricted by Disney’s template. As a strict retelling, it’s an incredible LGBTQ one and I really adored the romance. I just wanted more. I wanted it to test the boundaries more, to break out a little. But I think that’s just me.

The Book of Revelations by Idelle Kursman

The Book of Revelations by Idelle Kursman. Last year, Idelle was lovely enough to do a guest post while I was closed to requests, so I’m very happy to be able to do a review this year. I must admit it’s a little rough around the edges, and the beginning leaves a little to be desired, but, the further I read, the more involved I felt in it. It’s a lovely story about family, secrets, and setting things right. Honestly, though, if it weren’t for the blackmail twist, I’m afraid this would be on the cusp of being just an okay book with a not exactly interesting story.


What do you think you’ll read next?

The Queen of Izmoroz by Jon Skovron

The Queen of Izmoroz by Jon Skovron. I read the first book in the series last year and loved it, so now I’m really eager to get into the next book. This one is about two siblings who are taking different approaches to life, approaches that lead them in complete opposite directions. I’m dying to know what happens to them because the first book left off with them being pretty solidly on their different sides.


What about you?

  1. I wish you would have loved Malice more! I am still excited for that one. Sometimes they don’t really take it a bit further and that could leave you wanting! Have a great week!

    1. Me, too, but it still is an incredible read. There are so many good things in it that it helps make up for all the things I wasn’t fan of, and I can’t wait to see how it wraps up and concludes in the next book.
