WWW Wednesday – #5

Hello lovelies!

It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This meme was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm but was revived by Sam from Taking on a World of WordsIt’s a place to talk about the books you’ve been reading, plan to read and have read. I don’t usually keep track of my reading, except for my Goodreads Challenge, but I’ve found this meme to be really helpful with keeping me on track.

To take part all you have to do is answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?

What have you recently finished reading?

What are you going to read next?

Currently Reading

I’ve SOMEHOW managed to over-commit myself to ARCs and my goal this week is to get through as many of them as possible! I’m currently reading three great books right now. I enjoy changing it up every couple of chapters and these ones pair so well together!

I’m in a bit of a historical mood so Realm of Knights and Hunting for a Highlander satisfy this perfectly. I requested these ARCs because they sounded so good but I have to admit I’m genuinely surprised by HOW GOOD they’re actually turning out to be. To be Taught, If Fortunate is a delightful reprieve for when I’m feeling like something more futuristic.

Recently Finished

This was a pretty packed week of reading for me! Two of these are graphic novels and were super quick reads though… so it looks more efficient than it was haha. I ADORED HeartStopper, Nimona and A Lie for a Lie. I enjoyed reading A Curse so Dark and Lonely (mostly) and am still (slowly) working my way through the Chronicles of Nick series. I was quite disappointed with Everything, Everything though so that was probably my low point of the week.

HeartStopper Review
Nimona Review
A Lie for a Lie Review
Everything, Everything Review
A Curse so Dark and Lonely Review

Reading Next

Coming up, I’ve got another ARC with The Earl’s Christmas Pearl and then a Buddy Read with Ngoc from Nish and Ngoc’s Book Nook for These Broken Stars. Lastly, I’m keen to give These Rebel Waves a try. The cover is what initially caught my attention but I’ve also read reviews on its world building being phenomenal so I’m excited for that!

// what are you currently reading? have you read any of the books on my list? //

      1. Oh no! Well it’s great that the narrator is awesome but it sucks when you’re LOVING something and then have to live with a sequel that’s DEPRIVED of the same audio experience. I’m sorry for that Evelyn!

  2. Wow, you’ve finished so many books! I recently added These Broken Stars to my Kindle library and I’m looking forward to reading my first solo Kaufman! Wondering if I’ll end up loving it as much as I’ve loved my first solo Kristoff (Nevernight) 😃 Happy reading!

    1. I’ve got a lot of time on my hands lately so books keep me sane 😂 I’ve read a few pages of These Broken Stars and I have to say I’m surprised so far. It’s good but totally not what I was expecting in some ways. It’s almost historical… in space? At least the first two chapters are. I still have to read Nevernight! I’m like fourth in line at the library and it’s going to take AGES 🙈 hope you enjoy Broken Stars 💙 Jen

    1. My Uni course is online and nothing is happening in it right now so I’ve been BORED OUT OF MY MIND. Books are my escape 😂😂 May have gone a bit overboard with the reading this week. I’m enjoying the buddy read so far! Here’s hoping the book turns out to be great 🤞 Jen

  3. Lovely post!! It’s so nice to see that you enjoyed Nimona! I’m planning on picking it up soon! I really hope you enjoy These Rebel Waves! It personally wasn’t for me, but the world building in it is awesome! I’m currently listening to Obsidio, and it’s pretty good so far! I can’t wait to see how it concludes!

    Happy reading! ❤

    1. Thank you Kelly! I really did enjoy Nimona, it was so sweet and captivating! 🙂 I’m actually really enjoying These Rebel Waves. I think the story has the perfect amount of action and political intrigue for me. I can see why it might not be for someone else though. What made you not like it as much? Hope you enjoy Obsidio! ❤ Jen
