WWW Wednesdays (January 15th)

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Miz B at Should be Reading

To play along, just answer the following three questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you will read next?

1. What are you currently reading?

Fractured by Teri Terry

How do you know where to go when you don't remember where you came from?

Kyla's memory has been erased, her personality wiped blank, her memories lost for ever. 

Or so she thought. 

Kyla shouldn't be able to remember anything. But she can - and she's beginning to realise that there are a lot of dark secrets locked away in her memories. When a mysterious man from her past comes back into her life, she thinks she's on her way to finding the truth. But the more she learns about her history, the more confusing her future becomes... (Goodreads Synopsis)

This is the second book in the Slated series. If you have read my review for Slated, you will know that it was a 5 star read for me, so I am extremely excited to continue the series. I have only just started the book and I am already flying through it. The story is so full of suspense and I can't wait to find out about a certain mysterious and dangerous man. So far, so good.

2. What did you recently finish?

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, 
like Raven taught me to do. 
The old life is dead. 
But the old Lena is dead too. 
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence, behind a wall of smoke and flame. (Goodreads Synopsis)

Oh gosh, the feels. I really enjoyed the first book of this series, Delirium. It was a quick read but I really enjoyed the characters in the story. I gave both Delirium and Pandemonium 4 stars but I loved both books in different ways. In the first book it was the characters, Hana and Alex mainly, Lena was alright but a bit annoying; in Pandemonium, however, it was the world-building that I loved. I will have a full review of this on my blog shortly if you want to know more about my thoughts on both these books.

3. What do you think you will read next?

Unravel Me

it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life
(Goodreads Synopsis)

So, in case you haven't noticed by now, I have recently been on a mission to finish the series I have started (well read as far as my TBR shelf will allow...stupid book buying ban). I recently finished Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (full review to come shortly). I was so excited for this book that I actually bought the second one as well, thinking I would just love the series due to all the hype. I should have known not to trust the hype. I really did not enjoy Shatter Me; for me, it was everything I dislike about YA in one book. Now, why am I planning on reading the second one? The simple answer is curiosity. I really want to find out why everyone is team Warner when I think he is a despicable person who abuses Juliette and purposefully causes a toddler to be hurt for his sick mind games...what in the name of God happens in the second book to make that ok? That is what I need to find out. I have already picked this book up and put it down because the writing style is just not for me, so here's hoping I can finish it next time.
