WWW Wednesday

Current Reads

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme created by A Daily Rhythm and currently hosted by Taking on the World of Words.

It’s time for another WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is super easy, it’s just about answering 3 questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading:

Legacy of Ash (Legacy Trilogy, #1)

I’m currently reading Legacy of Ash by Matthew Ward. I’m only about 100 pages in so far, but I’m really enjoying it. It’s fast-paced and the writing is very accessible.

This is the first installment of an epic fantasy series set in the Tressian Republic and centered around its conflict with the Southshires and the threat of invasion by the Hadari Empire.

Viktor Akadra is the Republic’s Champion, a fierce warrior. But, he also harbors secret magic that would see him burned if it was ever found out. Josiri Trelan is the son of a failed revolutionary (who just happens to have been killed by Viktor) who is living as a political prisoner though he hopes to eventually succeeded where his mother failed. But, his sister Calenne only dreams to escape their family name.

But as war threats the Republic, it may be up to this unlikely trio to save it.

“We either die young and foolish, or old and stubborn. It’s the order of things.

Pride and Prejudice

Recently Finished:

I recently finished Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I wanted the first book of the year be a good one, so I figured rereading an old favorite was my best bet.

I doubt you need me to tell you what Pride and Prejudice is about – it’s one of the most popular novels of all time. So instead I’ll just say that I adore this book. Elizabeth is headstrong and independent. And, I love her relationship with Jane. Mr. Darcy is the socially awkward introvert of my dreams. And Austen has a way of writing biting social commentary and humor that just draws you into the story.

“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I HAD begun.”

Reading Next:

The Kingdom of Copper (The Daevabad Trilogy, #2)

I’m hoping that my next read with be The Kingdom of Copper by SA Chakraborty. I loved The City of Brass so I’m very excited to continue on with this series.

The Daevabad trilogy is an #ownvioces Muslim fantasy series. Nahri is a street thief and con woman who works the streets of Cairo using slight of hand, healings, and Zars to ease the burden of wealth from the Ottoman nobles. However, during a Zar, Nahri accidentally summons a warrior djinn named Dara who tells her that she is connected to an ancient sect of djinn healers. And that to escape the ifrits that have vowed to wipe out her entire line, she must travel to Deavabad, home of the djinn. And things only get more complicated from there.

The third and final book in this trilogy comes out in June, and I really want to to be caught up in time for it.

What about you? Are you currently reading anything fantastic that I just have to add to my TBR?

Happy Reading ♥

    1. Oh, I love the Kiera Knightly and Matthew MacFayden adaption. IMO that’s the most accurate version of Darcy. He’s delightfully awkward. 🤣🤣

      City of Brass is so good! You’re gonna love it!

      I’ve never read anything by him, but I hear such wonderful things! Gonna have to pick up one of his books soon!
