WWW Wednesday #7

Hey everyone! It’s been over a month since I did a WWW Wednesday and I’m excited to be back at it. I’ve read a ton of pages since last month (thanks, Empire of Storms) but don’t have a ton to talk about. I PROMISE I’ll be reading more once KOA comes out and I put myself on a “no more than 400 page book” ban.

Black Wings Beating by Alex London

I can’t believe I was finally able to pick this book up. What drew me to it was that it is a fantasy book that involves falconry. I’m a sucker for fantasy with animals, and have a hidden obsession with bird of prey (hi, I have an owl tattoo and one of my favorite books as a kid was My Side of The Mountain).

The first thing I love about this book is that it revolves around two siblings and their struggles. Brysen wants to be the best falconer to ever live, and the other sibling, Kylee may be the best falconer, but doesn’t care to use her gift. This book already has a m/m romance (and I think eventually a f/f romance?) but I haven’t gotten far enough to find out.

I listened to Alex London’s podcast episode on First Draft and realized how invested he was in making this book accurate. He spent time with a master falconer and learned about all types of birds. You really have to admire an author who wants to get it right.

I honestly can’t wait to read more and my review will be up soon!

2. What did you recently finish reading?

Need I say more? Check out my review here. Spoiler alert: I loved the ending and I’m still thinking about it.

3. What do you think you’ll read next?

I mean, realistically who DOESN’T have this on their TBR? I know ToG isn’t for everyone, but the hype surrounding this is real. I’ve been seeing a TON of stuff out there warning everyone about spoilers. I personally want to find out on my own what happens. There’s soooo many crazy theories about what might happen, and all I know is I don’t want to be let down!

Will you be reading KOA? Have you finished TOD? I haven’t read it yet but I’m hoping it isn’t REALLY needed. Plus judging by how long it took for me to finish the other books, I don’t have time hahaha.

See ya next week!
