WWW Wednesday

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 reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m currently reading A Case of Possession by K.J. Charles, which is the second in the Charm of Magpies books. I remember this book was a little more difficult to read than the first; the ending was a lot darker, but I still really love the characters and like seeing how they negotiate their relationship in such a restrictive environment.

I loved all three of these books. I read Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer in one evening. It was incredibly good and I just couldn’t put it down. Spellbound by Allie Therin was also very well done. It was an ARC from NetGalley and I cannot wait for it to come out. It’s a great story.

I have no idea. I’m leaving for a trip in about 13 days, and don’t really want to go to the library and check out a bunch of things. I’ll have time to read them, but it’ll be one less thing on my mind as to what I need to do. So, I’m playing it by ear. Any suggestions for Kindle books?

I’m currently reading The Magpie Lord by K.J. Charles, which is the first in the series A Charm of Magpies. This is actually a reread for me; I’ve read it twice before. It’s just such a fun book, and I need something lighter and fun. It’s about a man named Lucien Vaudrey who is under a curse and Stephen Day, the magic user who agrees to help break the curse.

I just finished On the Come Up by Angie Thomas. This book was so amazing! I loved Bri so much and really felt for her and her struggles. It tapped into some issues for me, and I found it hard to read at times, but the characters were so real and nuanced and the plot so good, that, despite having stress dreams, I couldn’t stop reading it.

I don’t know what I’m going to read next. I checked out stuff from the library, but I think they all might be too heavy for me right now. I’ll probably look for some m/m romance or just reread the ones I have. I also kind of want to read Let’s Talk about Love by Claire Kann, and the library does have it, so I might do that.

WWW Wednesday

So, before I get started on my WWW Wednesday, I want to warn everyone that I might be cutting back on how often I post. I’m not 100% sure yet, but I’m in a really intensive therapy program right now that keeps me busy all day and exhausted at night, and, even though it’s only been two days, I’m not as motivated to read. It’s only three weeks, then I go on my big vacation, so we’ll see how it goes. All I know is I’m going to have homework and stuff to work on, so reading might take the back seat. Not what I’d wanted this summer, but it’s what I need. So, I might not be posting as many reviews and I might give up doing tags on Friday. We’ll see how I feel.

Anyway, now that’s out of the way, 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 reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m currently reading The One by Kiera Cass, which is book 3 of the Selection series. I’m a little iffy on it right now, because I’m tired of the same scene playing out between America and Maxon. However, I’m glad that politics seems like it’s going to be a bigger part of it, because that’s what I’m interested in about the world.

I’m still reading Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown, although I just couldn’t read it at all last night. Too much therapy during the day I think; I needed to turn my brain off.

I just finished Every Alice by H.J. Ramsay, which I got from NetGalley, and whoo-boy, did I hate it. There was a part in the middle when I thought it was sort of okay, but then the ending ruined it. I’m not sure how I’m going to review it, but I’m going to try.

I’m excited the library finally got On the Come Up by Angie Thomas because I’ve been wanting to read it. I was less excited that I and J were missing from the Kinsey Millhone books; I hope they were just checked out. I should put Middlemarch on the list, too, because I said I’d try and read it this summer, but I’m quite feeling it yet.

So, that’s my Wednesday. What are you reading today?

While I’m happy to be reading this, I’m sad that this is the only book I’m reading. I brought another book to read on my trip, but finished it on the plane! Braving the Wilderness is an interesting book on belonging, loneliness, and being authentic. I really like Brene Brown and her writing style.

Some Kind of Magic was a very quick read about a werewolf detective who is in love with a fairy. It’s got a bit of a mystery, but to be honest, a lot of it went over my head. I don’t know if it’s because I was traveling or because it wasn’t that well written, but it fell kind of flat for me.

G is for Gumshoe was really entertaining. The mystery wasn’t the main focus this time; a hit is put out on Kinsey’s life and she gets a bodyguard whom I really liked.

And I finally got to read Clockwork Princess, which I enjoyed. It was a solid ending to the trilogy and very satisfying.

I am not sure what I’ll read next. I need to get to the library. Yay!

WWW Wednesday June 12

Ah, it’s Wednesday once again. Of course, days don’t mean much to me right now because I’m on vacation. It’s been nice being able to do what I want, lay around and read, go to the gym, go shopping, and generally destress. I just wish I could sleep at night. For some reason, I’m spending most of the night tossing and turning. Maybe because it’s so hot. I live in an area that rarely gets higher than the 70’s (Fahrenheit) and we were 104 yesterday, so I’m struggling.

I’ve just started G is for Gumshoe by Sue Grafton. It’s the next in the Kinsey Millhone mystery series.

I finished The Elite by Kiera Cass and Outer Order, Inner Calm by Gretchen Rubin on Sunday, and The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White on Monday. I really liked Dark Descent a lot; it was horrifying in a wonderful way and I loved Elizabeth with a burning passion.

I’m probably going to save Some Kind of Magic by R. Cooper for my trip next week because it’s on my Kindle and I just want to take my Kindle with me. I’m also looking for recommendations for other books I should get; I know I have a ton of books on my Kindle already, but I want to read new stuff on my trip.

That’s my week so far. What’s your week looking like? Do you have any suggestions for books I should buy or check out for my trip? Drop a comment below and let me know!

Three more days of school. Three more days! I can do this. I can totally do this. *deep breaths*

I just started The Elite by Kiera Cass yesterday. I enjoyed The Selection enough to continue the series, even though I don’t know how to review it. It’s just so floofy and kind of silly that I don’t have a lot to say about it. It’s fun, though. Sadly, my library doesn’t seem to have the whole series, so I’m not sure how I’m going to proceed after this one.

I also started Outer Order, Inner Calm by Gretchen Rubin. I really like her books and I like reading about decluttering and organizing, so it seems to be a match made in heaven. Right now, though, it just seems to be a list of how you should choose what to declutter and not much else. It did inspire me to start looking at my bookshelf again, but since I started this at one thirty in the morning (damn you, insomnia), I decided not to start unhauling just yet. Gotta save something for summer vacation.

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo was really good. I loved Emoni and her passion of cooking. I liked the relationship between the characters, especially Emoni and her abuela. It was a really fun read and it made me hungry.

Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust was surprising. I didn’t realize it was a Snow White retelling when I picked it up. It had amazing female characters and wonderful and complicated relationships among all of them. I really enjoyed it a lot.

The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau is a kid’s book about a self-contained city that is running out of food and power. Lina is a twelve year old girl who discovers a message left by the builders. Unfortunately, her baby sister eats most of the message. She and her friend Doon manage to decode it and realize that it holds the salvation of the city. This book was tense and exciting. I loved watching Lina and Doon decoding the message and the tension of whether they’d do it in time.

I swear to all holy heaven that if Clockwork Princess doesn’t arrive in my mailbox sometime this week, I will do some damage to someone somewhere. I know the delivery date said June 3 – June 10, but was it really too much to hope that it’d be June 3? Apparently so. *sigh* In the meantime, I got the other books from the library to tide me over.

WWW Wednesday May 29

It does not feel like Wednesday. I spent all weekend reading–except when I went to see Fiddler on the Roof on Saturday–and the weekend flew by. I really appreciated having that extra day; I’m now a couple weeks ahead on reviews and I’m super far ahead on my Goodreads challenge. I’m a long way away from my reading slump in February.

I guess, technically, I’m about to start this book. I’d put a hold on it a few weeks ago and it just became available. It always takes me a little bit to remember how to download loans onto my Kindle, but I’ve got it and I’m about to start. I’ve heard nothing but praise for With the Fire on High and don’t know much about it except it’s about a woman who likes to cook. I’m looking forward to starting it.

Like I said, I went on a reading binge this weekend. Since last Wednesday, I almost got through a book a day. Maybe every two days. I really enjoyed all the books, even The Selection, which I didn’t think I’d like very much. I’m not sure how to review it, mostly because it was just so light and fluffy. I don’t know if it was very good, but I certainly found it enjoyable.

So, I have Girls Made of Snow and Glass from the library, but wait until you hear what happened with Clockwork Princess. Saturday, I stopped by Barnes & Noble and bought all three of the Infernal Devices books. I tore through Clockwork Prince on Sunday. Monday, I sat down to read Clockwork Princess only to find the first 20 pages were missing! Needless to say, I was quite dismayed. I had to drive a half hour to the bookstore and they didn’t have another copy. They didn’t even offer to order me one. I ended up ordering it through Amazon, but it won’t be here until next week. I am so, so frustrated over this. I want the damn book.

After I finish these books, I’ll head back to the library and check out a bunch more. I really want to read Legendary and the second in the Shatter Me series. I’ll read more of The Selection series, too.

So, that’s my Wednesday. What are you reading? Drop me a comment below and let me know!
