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
What am I currently Reading?
My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows: So far so good. I’m three chapters in and I love it. The humor the characters the story line. It’s really just what I need right now. I need something weird and silly to help get me through these hard times.
FUN FACT: shortly after I bought this book, my car was broken into and this book was stolen, but I chased the guy who broke into my car and got it back. I’m sure I will tell this story in greater detail in my review of this book, so check back here for that.
All Out by Various authors, edited by Saundra Mitchell: I have, at the writing of this blog post, read one story, and it was very good so believe the rest of the stories will be just as good and I will love this collection of LGBTQIA+ historical fiction short stories. I’ve been looking forward to reading this for a long time, I think I bought it the week it was released but decided I could only read it during pride month. Well, the time has come.
What did I recently finish reading
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black: My review for this book dropped on Monday, but I loved it. It was a bit weird to read during the pandemic because vampirism is described as a virus spreading slowly across the world, which is … well, you’re alive now, you know. Anyway I’ve read a lot of YA paranormal books in my time, and this one was different because it kept the horror roots of the vampire story. There is romance and even some of the “vampires are so neat” stuff that many YA books about vampires have, but it keeps the dark creepy story. Holly Black is a genius.
The Mall by Megan McCafferty: The complete opposite of the dark horror novel is The Mall. This is a little bit of a silly book about that weird summer between senior year and going off to college. How to deal with life when everything changes. Friendship and fun and growing up. Plus it takes place in a suburban mall in 1991, so it’s, you know, perfect.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: I don’t think much more can be said about this classic novel. I have never read it, but I’ve heard so many people talk about it and it’s one of the books my best friend Jen really wanted to me read — someday she will read my recommendation, The Biography of Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. I listened to the audiobook, so it took me about 35 years to get through it, but only because my commute isn’t as long as it used to be. I listened to the Rosamund Pike audio and I very much enjoyed it.
What will I be reading next?
The Gravity of Us by Phil Stamper: I have heard such amazing things about this book from the internet and I’m so excited it’s next on my TBR list. I can’t wait to dig in it sounds incredibly cute.
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson I got this as and ARC from Netgalley because I like books about murder, and the goodreads reviews are amazing so I’m pretty hype to dig into this book too.
If you’re a regular follower of mine you’ll notice I’m missing a currently reading audiobook and a reading next audiobook. I’m curious to see what y’all think. Is anyone else having a bit a time squeezing in audio? It’s usually what I listen to in the car, but now I’m not going anywhere. How are y’all doing your audio books. I love them and I have a ton of books in my audible library I want to listen to 2020 is terrible. Drop me a comment with suggestions? I would love to hear them.
Until next time Internet,
