Arden, Katherine - Winternight Trilogy 3 The Winter of the WitchWhat am I currently reading?

I am currently reading The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden. This is the third and final book in the Winternight trilogy, which started with The Bear and the Nightingale. I planned to read The Snow Child, but I pre-ordered this one (shock! horror!) and since it has the word Winter in it, it suits my Winter Reading Project and I decided to read this one instead, or first anyway. I read a lot last week, so I am reading far less so far this week, but that’s fine. I am really enjoying this story. I am about halfway and I feel like Arden’s writing has really grown throughout this series and I love the weird and wonderful world she creates.

What did I recently finish reading?

Since the last WWW I have finished The Wrath and the Dawn (Renée Ahdieh), which was entertaining enough, but did not blow me away. I also finished Winter: an Anthology for the Changing Seasons, which I really loved. I read a poetry collection: Wild Flowers, by Michelle S Smith, which I thought was really excellent. And finally I read a children’s book by Matt Haig with my daughter: The Truth Pixie, which is poetry as well really. I enjoyed reading poetry and I definitely want to read more in 2019.

What do I think I will be reading next?

The Snow Child (Eowyn Ivey) is STILL top of my list this month. I would like to read something small and very different inbetween my current read and that one, but we’ll see. I also have a non-fiction book I would like to get to that I received via NetGalley, which is Carolina of Orange-Nassau by Moniek Bloks, which is interesting to me as I am Dutch and Orange-Nassau is our royal house. The publication date is at the end of this month.
