What do you think you’ll read next?

The Alienist was such a good book. I loved the characters and the mystery. I watched the first episode of the show, but I’m not sure if I’ll continue. Too many changes to the characters that I don’t like. But, I might give it one more chance.

I’m actually not 100% sure this is what I’ll read, but it’s what I was going to read next before Legendary became available at the library. My TBR list is longer than it usually is and I’m getting a little stressed about it!

I’m currently reading The Alienist by Caleb Carr. I’m only a few chapters in, but it’s really good. However, it’s also really heavy, so I think I’m going to start something light and fluffy to offset the heaviness of this one.

I just finished The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern on Sunday. It was such an incredible book. I finished Stepsister last week and loved it, even though it took me forever to read. The beginning of the school year had me so stressed, I couldn’t concentrate on it and kept losing the thread of the plot. But I loved the book.

After I finish The Alienist, I’ll read The Butchering Art by Lindsey Fitzharris, but I think I’ll start Lord of the Last Heartbeat by My Peterson in the next few days and read it concurrently. It doesn’t sound very light and fluffy, but it’s got magic, mages, and romance, so it’ll give me a break from child murders.

I just started The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, and am really enjoying it. I’m also still listening to Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly. I’ve got about two hours left in the book.

I was finally able to finish both The Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger and Treacherous is the Night by Anna Lee Huber. I really liked both of them a lot. They had great female characters who were different from one another but both very strong.

I also just finished No Good Men by Thea McAlistair. She posted on Twitter that she had ARCs available, and murder mystery with a m/m romance sounded right up my alley. I replied to her and she sent me the book. I flew through it. My review will go up next week.

I plan to read The Alienist by Caleb Carr first, then The Butchering Art by Lindsey Fitzharris next.

That’s my Wednesday. How is yours? Reading anything good?

I’m still listening and loving Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly. Isabelle is such a wonderful character. She’s smart and brave and, after being disgraced, humble and kind. I love her quest to find the missing pieces of her heart, and I love how she’s kind of a badass too.

I’m still enjoying Treacherous is the Night by Anna Lee Huber. I was actually able to read three chapters yesterday despite being exhausted from an invasive medical procedure and anesthesia in the morning. I… just hope I remember what I read.

I also got my new copy of The Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger, which does not randomly turn into Oscar Wilde and the Vampire Murders near the end. I’m excited to finish this book!

Nothing. I have just finished nothing. Well, technically I finished Whoever You Are by Mem Fox as a read-aloud today. It was a beautiful book about how, despite our differences, we’re so much the same. When I finished it, one of my students smiled and said, “That was a good book.” I certainly made me feel good.

I plan to read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern next, followed by The Alienist by Caleb Carr and The Butchering Art by Lindsey Fitzharris. I’m also going to read stories from and ARC entitled An Anthology of Works Inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by a variety of authors.

That’s a lot! But, I have Monday off which means I’ll have time to read and hopefully get back into my groove.

Also, if you’re feeling generous and want to help out a teacher, you can go here to donate to my DonorsChoose project or here to buy something for my class.

I am currently reading Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger. I started it on my trip after I finished Eat, Pray, Love and then had to leave it behind in Canada because it wasn’t my book. Luckily, I found it on Thrift Books and now have it in my hot little hands.

I’m still reading Daring Greatly by Brene Brown, which is due next week, so I think I’ll have to renew it.

I also just started listening to Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly, which is really good. The narrator, Jayne Entwistle, sounds a lot like Judi Dench, and it took me a long time to figure out who she sounds like. I’m highly enjoying the story.

I just finished A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce, and I need to get off my butt and review it already. Spoiler alert: I loved it. It was just wonderful.

I feel like I actually have a lot of books I’m supposed to get to, but this one will be next. I know last week I said I’d read Changeling by Molly Harper, but that was before I actually got Treacherous is the Night by Anna Lee Huber, and I said I was going to read this book months ago. I need to start writing down the books I want to read because I know I had a list of five or so, but I can’t remember what they are now. Teacher brain has started early this year.

WWW Wednesday July 3

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.

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 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?
