WWW Wednesday — Yay!

Hi everyone! After yesterday’s lengthy posts : Aliens : Comparing and Contrasting Five Diverse Examples and folklore book tag : completely unoriginal post idea but with my very own thoughts I was going to post tomorrow, but when I (finally) found out what WWW Wednesday was after seeing it at The Cosy Corner and an explanation at Caitlin’s blog, I wanted to do it (especially since it’s Wednesday)!

This will be a short, snappy post (I think), don’t worry!

What I Finished Reading

The Dark Forest by Liu Cixin

This is the second book in the Three Body Problem trilogy (I will do a full length book review on this trilogy soon) and it really goes into the nitty gritty of how Earth would react to an alien invasion — on the global scale, political scale, and public scale. It is indescribably impressive how Liu Cixin was able to envision such a world and put it so clearly on paper.

What I Am Currently Reading

Death’s End by Liu Cixin

This is the third and final book in the Three Body Problem trilogy (yep, you guessed it, when I finish this book I can write a review of the trilogy) and I’m a little over halfway through. *SPOILERS AHEAD* When the strained peace between Earth and Trisolaris is shattered after Trisolaris’s betrayal, and the dark forest theory is terminated, Earth goes back to chaos. But when Trisolaris is eliminated by a dark forest strike, Earth must face an even greater threat : the rest of the universe, essentially a massive dark forest. Our home planet has to figure out a way to defend itself from a dark forest strike and broadcast to the rest of the universe that they are harmless. The key to doing this? Three fairy tales.

Not joking.

What I Am Going To Read Next

A Phoenix First Must Burn: Sixteen Stories of Black Girl Magic, Resistance, and Hope by Sixteen Authors : Elizabeth Acevedo, Amerie, Patrice Caldwell, Dhonielle Clayton, J. Marcelle Corrie, Somaiya Daud, Charlotte Nicole Davis, Justina Ireland, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Danny Lore, L. L. McKinney, Danielle Paige, Rebecca Roanhorse, Karen Strong, Ashley Woodfolk, and Ibi Zoboi.

That title is just so pretty 😀 and the summary is fascinating. I put a hold on the ebook version, but unfortunately it won’t be ready for a while. Still, I can’t wait to read this book!

Here are the gorgeous covers of these three books. Images are not mine.

    1. Hi Jheel! Yas I loved your WWW Wednesday post, and The Girl Who Drank the Moon is one of my favorite MG novels! Sisters is a fun read too, and I’d be too scared to read Coraline so kudos to you for being braver than me!! You and Krisha come out with such great posts, of course I’ll keep visiting! Plus, I’m following 😀 so that’ll make it easier to see whenever you post something new.

    1. Aw I’m glad I was able to find your post! Yes, I hope you can read The Three Body Problem when you have time! I’m going to post a review on the trilogy soon :D. Based on your blog’s book reviews, I understand that character is a huge thing for you? With the Three Body Problem, it’s not very character focused, but what it lacks in character it more than makes up for with its immense scope of world and plot! Hopefully these books can be an exception because they’re excellent reads! I’ll stop rambling now 😅 thank you so much for stopping by!

    1. No worries! 😉Ooh The Henna Wars was a fantastic book, I finished it a couple days ago. ARCs sound fun to read, the entire concept just sounds so cool!! Ah, that’s ok, at least you were able to do a few this summer!

  4. I read the first book The Three Body Problem and was amazed by how the author Cixin Liu interweaves Chinese and Western philosophies, science, and human cultures, etc all together into this beautiful saga. Can’t wait to read two other books in his trilogy. And thank you for introducing me to the book A Phoenix First Must Burn. Looks like another must read.

    1. Yay I’m glad you think so too! Yes, Cixin Liu does so flawlessly. I hope you like the other two books — they’re just as amazing, if not even better 😀 Totally! Anthologies seem really cool and I hope to enjoy more of them after A Phoenix First Must Burn.
