A Week in Review, #18, WWW #14

WWW hosted by Taking on a World of Words is a weekly meme with a great community of bloggers participating.

WWW tackles 3 questions:

What are you reading?
What have you finished?
What will you read next?


What-I-Am-Reading-(PINK)

No progress this week on these two. Between being sick, helping the boyfriend with his online college courses, and leaving for travel (work, not pleasure), I haven’t made these a priority this week. With my homework schedule (travel is for work, but it’s a training), I’m not sure I will progress very far at all this month…

BUT…

I listened to a good portion of Divergent on my drive towards my class. I wasn’t reading books or around people that read books when Divergent came out, but I have sensed it was popular and am thrilled to be finding out why. Hey, better late than never, right?


 What-I-Finished-(PINK)

The Vault of Dreamers is a book I first learned about through the Goodreads First Reads program and vaguely remember on a blog or two. It ties together wonderful concepts and I couldn’t resist the formula: YA + boarding school + competition based on ranking + love interest + conspiracy + psych thriller (ish). I mean… how could this go wrong? (Spoiler alert: by being half baked). I loved the first half, or even three quarters of the book, but the last portion was rushed and the end was unbearable. I am going to read the second book, but I don’t have high hopes. I plan to rate this after ending the second. It’s a 2 stars if the second doesn’t make the first one worth reading, 3 stars if I’m pleasantly surprised. Cross your fingers for me. πŸ™‚


 What-Is-Next--(PINK)

From the user reviews I read, I am worried about this sequel.

Hope everyone is having a great week ❀️

  1. Fingers crossed you will like the sequel better than the first book! It’s always a shame when a series doesn’t live up to expectations. I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading! Here’s my WWW.

  2. The Vault of Dreamers sounds like it should be good so I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy it. Hopefully the next book will be better.

    I read and loved Divergent but I’d be tempted to try the audio too. How are you finding the narrator?

  3. I hope you like Divergent. Insurgent was my favorite of the series so I would say it didn’t suffer from ‘middle book syndrome,’ haha. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

  4. I hope you get better soon from being sick! I really loved Divergent when I read it back in the day but… gave up on the series when I found out things about the last book. I actually meant to read vault of dreamers back when it came out too but never got to it! hopefully the sequel will be better?
