It’s time for another WWW Wednesday! This is a bookish meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words where bloggers answer the 3 Ws:

If you’d like to learn more about any of these books, click on the cover to be taken to the Goodreads page.
- Son of Shadow by John Lenahan: I’m reading this because I’m participating in a blog tour hosted by The Write Reads. So far, it’s quite the interesting story! This book follows after the events of a completed trilogy that I definitely haven’t read and I feel so far behind because of that. I do appreciate the writer having a synopsis of the events of the first trilogy at the beginning of the book, though! I’m still feeling a little lost, but I’m loving the characters and the plot is engaging. Check back tomorrow for my full review!
- The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov: I’m reading this book for a reading challenge I’m doing on Goodreads. I had heard nothing about this before it was picked as a book of the month! So far, I am both thoroughly amused and thoroughly confused. More so confused because WTF is happening in this book, Mikhail?! Still, it is quite funny and satirical, so I’m having a good time. No thoughts, just vibes right now 😂
- The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James: So I finally read a Simone St. James and it was… okay? It was a fast read and I had a good time with it, for the most part. But I also figured out the twists maybe halfway through the book and then I was bored. This book jumps between POVs and timelines and, when it went back to when the murders occurred, I found myself not caring at all. Which is probably not a good thing since, ya know, the whole book centers around said murders. Overall, it was a good thriller, but it didn’t wow me.
- Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan: This fantasy was absolutely incredible! The prose was lyrical and evocative. It made it so easy to imagine all the beautiful and mythical things the main character, Xingyin, experiences throughout the story. I loved Xingyin as a character, as well, and it was a delightful following her trials and growth. She kicks so much ass and I can’t wait to read more about her in the sequel! I will say, this book wrapped up very nicely, so you could read it as a standalone. I, however, am very glad there will be more to Xingyin’s story.
- Murder in Mesopotamia by Agatha Christie: The Poirot reading continues! I’m not sure what to expect from this one… I always get a little nervous when Christie novels are set anywhere with a lot of brown people. You just know a slur is gonna slip in there somewhere. It appears that the main narrator in this one, though, is a woman and I do love when that happens in Poirot novels.
- The Witch’s Heart by Genevieve Gornichec: This is yet another reading challenge read for a Goodreads group that I’m in. I will say, though, that I’ve been intrigued by this book for awhile. I mean, it has Loki in it, my favorite trickster god! I’ve heard mixed things about it, but I’m excited to give it a go.
