Hey bookworms, I hope everyone’s February is going fabulously so far. It’s time for another WWW Wednesday, which is a weekly meme hosted by Sam from Taking on a World of Words where anyone who wants to participate answers three questions. Please feel free to leave your own answers in the comments, I always love hearing what other people are reading. I am very excited about the books I have read so far this month, and even more excited to share them with all of you, so here it goes…

Wonder Woman: Warbringer
Daughter of immortals.
Princess Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mortal. Diana will soon learn that she has rescued no ordinary girl, and that with this single brave act, she may have doomed the world.
Daughter of death.
Alia Keralis just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted by people who think her very existence could spark a world war. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
Two girls will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. Tested beyond the bounds of their abilities, Diana and Alia must find a way to unleash hidden strengths and forge an unlikely alliance. Because if they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war
I am currently in the process of reading this book, and I am still not sure how I feel about it. I think it was hyped so much that it feels a bit like a let down. I am still enjoying it, and I love Leigh Bardugo so hopefully the story picks up as I get more into the book.
What did you recently finish reading?
As two lethal elemental gods set out to destroy Mytica, sworn enemies must become allies in the final fight to save the kingdoms.
Jonas continues to willfully defy his destiny, but the consequences of plotting his own course are drastic. As the fight for Mytica rages on, he must decide just how much more he’s willing to sacrifice.
Lucia knows there’s something special about her daughter and she’ll do anything to protect her, even if that means facing Kyan alone.
Amara is called back home to Kraeshia. Grandma Cortas has her own plans for Mytica’s future. She promises Amara power, revenge, and dominance if she agrees to be part of her scheme.
Magnus and Cleo‘s love will be put to the ultimate test. Dark magic is causing widespread destruction throughout the kingdom. Enemies across the sea are advancing. And unrest is stirring throughout the land. Is their love strong enough to withstand the outside forces tearing them apart?
I both purchased and read this book yesterday instead of doing my school work like I probably should have (what can I say I have not self control when it comes to books). I have been waiting over a year and a half for this book to come out and boy was it worth the wait! Full review will be coming this Sunday, but let me just say it was the perfect ending to a wonderful series.
What do you think you’ll read next?
The Cruel Prince
Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
I was super lucky to get this book in my latest Fairyloot box, and I am so excited I did because it was on the top of my TBR list! I can’t wait to start reading it, as I have heard great things about it from other bloggers.
Have you read any of these books? if yes, what were your thoughts, and if not what books are you reading/ hoping to start soon?
