WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme currently hosted by Sam @Taking on a World of Words. Each week there are three questions that we answer. What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading? What do you plan on reading next?

I am currently reading 

Heart of the Wolf by Terry Spear. It's ok, so far. I mean paranormal fantasy is what I usually like but the writing is an amateur, and I am finding it troubling when the wolf in human form still growls. It is bothering me that Devlyn has no clue what Volan, the Alpha male of the pack of grays, did to Bella, forcing her to run from him and Devlyn. I mean really? It makes it awkward when the audience knows more than the character, Devlyn who is clueless. It's frustrating to the point I want to shout "HE RAPED BELLA!" She doesn't want to marry the rotten sonofabitch Volan but loves Devlyn. Except Devlyn has to compete and fight Volan just to win Bella. Grrr. I am not impressed with neither of them so far.

What I recently finished reading

Written in Red by Anne Bishop. I listened to the book on audio. It was hard to understand what was happening at the beginning with Meg Corbyn and the massive world that was built around Elementals and Sanguinati living in Thasia? It was interesting, and I liked it.

What I plan on reading next. 

It's a tough choice. Iron Gold just came in the mail yesterday, and I want to read it so much but March Take control of your TBR challenge starts tomorrow and I don't know what to do. Should I just read Iron Gold and then The Bear and the Nightingale, The Return, and Tower of Dawn? I mean technically, Iron Gold is now part of my TBR shelf.

My favourite. . . Movie of 2017

My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it... The world can be a dark place and it’s to share something positive.
2017 was the year for Netflix. I don't recall going to an actual movie theatre last year. How sad. The last film I saw in the theatre was Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them and it was terrific.

On Netflix, I watched Breaking Bad, The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, 100 but I'd have to say The Vampire Diaries is my favourite because it is the longest running with 8 seasons. Season 8 was released in 2017.

The Walking Dead is still going, with the War against Negan, and I hope it never ends because I'm in love with it also.  The Walking Dead Season 8 Part 2 will be released on Sunday 25th February 2018! 4 days guys!
The spin-off of TVD, The Originals, is another exciting show that I love and love to binge watch. It is a close second with season 5 (Final) set to be released in April of 2018. 

The actual movies I watched that I can remember are Guardians of the Galaxy vol II, Season 7 of Game of Thrones, Star Wars The Last Jedi, Wonder Woman, but they weren't my favourite. Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson, when you've seen it once, you've seen them all IMO. I mean Beauty and the Beast is a timeless story, and the Disney animation cannot be beaten.

My Favorite...Website to shop for books.

This week we are talking about

My Favorite... Website To Shop For Books.

When I want a book that I can't get in Chapters or WalMart, I can usually find it on Amazon. The time it takes to arrive is quicker than The Book Depository but the shipping costs more. I have also purchased books from Barnes and Noble. Other than that, I like using Freebooksy for kindle books :) & Audible for audiobooks
