Welcome to another WWW Wednesday! I skipped last week’s because I hadn’t read but a single book and I just wasn’t in the mood for posting anything. This one isn’t much better in that I read five books + a short story. I have a couple new favorites and a lot of dnf’s. Let’s just get to it shall we?
What did I finish reading?
I’m struggling against a reading slump. Again. I’ve three books before I hit 250 books on my Goodreads goal. I’m hoping to get some reading in the next two days before the new year. I should manage it. Here’s what I’ve recently finished reading:
What am I currently reading?
What am I going to read next?
I’m in such a fantasy mood right now! Finally!!! I’m doubtful that I can read any of these before the end of the year but I’m still including these as my “potentials”. I know Knights Shadow is not the first but I want to read the whole series; same for the others! I’m hoping that next year I will be back into reading with fewer slumps! Doubtful but hopeful! What did you read since last Wednesday? Let me know in the comments!

How do you kill a god?
As her father’s chosen heir, eighteen-year-old Rasmira has trained her whole life to become a warrior and lead her village. But when her coming-of-age trial is sabotaged and she fails the test, her father banishes her to the monster-filled wilderness with an impossible quest: To win back her honor, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year—or die trying.
This surprised me by how good it was! I went into this completely blind and unaware of much of the plot. Sure, some of it was predictable but it was still enjoyable due to the banter, romance and it’s a standalone so I flew right through it. I liked there was a gay main character in it. I liked they all had happy endings. I was fast paced, with great characters and a believable plot. While I didn’t agree with how certain people got their ending, it was still well handled. The writing was strong and the book itself was fun.
