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.
- A Snake Falls to Earth by Darcie Little Badger: I’m reading this for one of my Goodreads groups and, so far, I’m really enjoying it! It has an interesting structure and I love both Nina and Oli. I might be a little partial to Oli, but that’s probably because I find the concept of animal people fascinating! Also, Oli is adorably sweet and I feel like I must protect him at all costs. I’m looking forward to getting more into this one.
- The Hawthorne Legacy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: I’ve finally started the second book in the The Inheritance Games series! Not gonna lie, I may have forgotten quite a few details from the end of the first book. Thankfully, the author does a great job of weaving a mini-recap into the narrative of this story. I’m enjoying getting to know Avery and the Hawthorne boys again and, though I’ve just started, there are already riddles on top of riddles. I will say that the audiobook narrator’s Texan accents are… not great, but I’m not gonna hold it against her 😂
- Winterset Hollow by Jonathan Edward Durham: I was sent a copy of this novel for review an embarrassingly long time ago. It sounded like something that I would love, what with it’s bookish themes and the hint of a dark underbelly. I read the first chapter a bit ago and was feeling a little lackluster about it, but I knew I had to read it because I had promised a review! I’m so glad I stuck it on my various TBRs for this month because, though it has a bit of a slow start, this book was INCREDIBLE! It was exactly my brand of weird, with a perfect dark and lyrical vibe. It was intense and somber and a great time all around. Now I just have to coral my thoughts so I can write a proper review!
- An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson: This was such a quick, fun read! I’ve now read two Margaret Rogerson books and I find that I get on very well with her writing style. I’m not a huge fan of fae stories, but this one was fast-paced and I loved the author’s take on the fair folk. I also loved that the main character was a painter because it made the descriptions of everything through her eyes so vivid! I’m definitely going to have to pick up more books from this author because there’s a distinct possibility she could become a favorite.
- The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart: I’m steadily working through my various TBRs and I think this fantasy will be next up from my lists! I’ve been eager to pick this up since it started getting hyped and, since learning there is an animal companion involved, I’m even more excited. I’m hoping to love this one so I can continue on with the series.
- Spy x Family by Tatsuya Endo: Look. Is this manga on any of my rather long TBRs? No. Am I fully obsessed with this series after reading the first volume and binging the first season of the anime? Yes. So I may or may not have already checked out the next three volumes from the library and will be binging those, as well. I can’t help it! I need more of the Forger family, dangit.
