Happy Wednesday bookworms! I hope you are all finding things to do during this time, or maybe you are still working, and in that case I hope you are finding time to relax. Since it is a new month, it is high time for another WWW Wednesday post. As most of you know, I like to do these posts once a month to keep you all up to date with what I am currently reading. I also wanted to quickly reflect on April, as I completed my first ever readathon! I participated in the OWLs Readathon hosted by @BookRoast (find her amazing videos on youtube). It was a lot of fun, and I definitely underestimated how many books I could read in a month, so next time I will really try to push myself. Now on to the book meme!
For those who don’t know WWW-Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam from Taking on a World of Words where anyone who wants to participate answers three questions about what books you are currently reading, just finished and want to read next. As always I want to hear from all of you about what you are currently reading down in the comments!

Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood
By: Sarah J. Maas
Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life—working hard all day and partying all night—until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.
Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose—to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.
As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion—one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.

It’s been three years since Rowan and Citra disappeared; since Scythe Goddard came into power; since the Thunderhead closed itself off to everyone but Grayson Tolliver.
In this pulse-pounding conclusion to New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman’s Arc of a Scythe trilogy, constitutions are tested and old friends are brought back from the dead.
