WWW Wednesday May 1

And we made it to May! April was actually a pretty quick month for me, what with spring break, but it’s nice to be in a new month. And it’s Wednesday, so let’s get this started.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Each week, you answer three questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you just finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m currently reading An American Duchess by Caroline Fyffe. It reminds me a little of Downton Abbey in that an heir dies and they have to search for the new heir. Only this one is the son of the duke, thought to be illegitimate but it turns out he’s not. When he finds out he’s going to be the new duke, he marries his new love in a whirlwind and they swan off to England so he can assume his responsibilities. There’s also a girl named Charlotte, who works in the village bakery but takes over as a scullery maid when her cousin falls ill. It’s interesting and I’m enjoying it so far.

Play it Again by Aidan Wayne is about a popular YouTuber named Dovid who starts following a gamer on Youtube named Sam. Dovid promotes Sam’s channel on his, and Sam’s popularity soars. They being exchanging DMs, which eventually leads to a relationship. It was a cute book, but without much substance or depth. It felt very safe and superficial. My full review will be up Thursday.

Next, I’m going to read Aru Shah and the Song of Death by Roshani Chokshi. I just reread the first book, and I am ready to the next. I love the characters, I love that it centers around girls, and I love learning about new gods and goddesses. It’s a win all around.
