WWW Wednesday 8/14/19

WWW Wednesday is a meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s very simple – answer the three questions and leave a link in Sam’s post.

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next

Another month has passed since my last WWW Wednesday, and this time I actually accomplished some reading! I’m pleased with this development. A 13-hour drive one-way to Virginia and a 9-hour drive back from Washington DC helped finish a couple audiobooks which seemed to spark something within me. I just may be able to complete the NEWTS read-a-thon.

What am I currently reading?

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier- I am reading this on the recommendation of my Best Friend Jen. I’m about 3.5 hours into the audiobook, and I’m warming up to it. The narrator is great. This book has pretty high praise everywhere so I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.

This is Kind of Epic Love Story by Kheryn Callendar- At the time of this writing I have read just under 70 pages and I am in love with this book. It’s cute, the narrator is funny and clever. One of the main characters is deaf and the book discusses different ways the other characters communicate. I’m going to love this.

Ever Alice by H.J. Ramsay- I’m not starting this one until Saturday, because I’m reading it on a tablet. I  have an ARC of this book so I can’t read it on a computer for Amazon is dumb reasons, but I’ve seen positive things and I enjoy Alice in Wonderland stories and fairytale adjacent stories in general, so I think this will turn out lovely.

What have I recently finished?

Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabot- (review) I greatly enjoyed this book about an ex-pop star solving murders. It was fun, a bit silly, and highly enjoyable.

An Assassin’s Guide to Love & Treason by Virginia Boecker- I loved this trip Elizabethian England and the stage of Shakespeare. Murder plots and mistaken identities, girls dressed as boys so they can be in plays. It was a good time.

The Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton- I did enjoy the first one a little bit more because there was more happening, but I did enjoy the fight to change the world as the Belles knew it and the charge for social change. It was a good book.

The Raven’s Tale by Cat Winters – I love Edgar Allan Poe. I have yet to read a Cat Winters book I haven’t loved. She’s brilliant, this book is brilliant.

What am I reading next?

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray- I have had this book on my bookshelf for approximately 100 years. I will be reading it next week.

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi – I will be reading this on the recommendation of several of my friends because I need a graphic novel for the NEWTS read-a-thon. I’ve heard good things about this, and I believe a movie version was nominated for a bunch of awards, so I’m really interested in this book.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid- From what I’ve seen from fellow book bloggers, this book is a ride. I’m looking forward to it.

 

For the first time since February, I’m ahead of schedule on Goodreads. I’m thrilled I found my stride again with reading. All it took was a drive halfway across the country.

What are you reading this week?

Until next time Internet,

Deanna
