WWW Wednesday

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 been wanting to read these two books for a while now! Not only are the covers so pretty and colourful but the books have quietly received so many glowing reviews.

All the Bad Apples is captivating so far and I can’t seem to put it down. We Set the Dark on Fire had a very interesting start but has seemed to plateau a bit in pace. I’m hoping it will pick up more toward the end!

Recently Finished

Overall, this was a decent week of reading. I enjoyed One of Us is Lying however it did not seem to hold up to the hype others had placed on it. My review goes in to more depth about the reasons that it fell flat for me.

A Thousand Perfect Notes was a dark, gritty YA that was short, simple and by no means sweet. I still don’t know exactly how I feel about this book yet. It was equally heart-wrenching, emotional and overly simple with a lack of exploration in some areas where it felt desperately needed. The review will be up later today.

Reading Next

Next up this week will be a combo of YA fantasy (my love, my life) with Ghosts of the Shadow Market and Legend. I love Clare’s characters and have been wanting to give this one a try for a few months. Legend made my TBR list from Emer’s ( A Little Haze Book Blog) obsession and recommendation of it.

I’m also taking a small break from the usual with a mystery/crime novel The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. I was recommended this book by a friend and hope that it meets expectations. I’m always a bit wary when reading outside of my usual genres.

// have you read any of these books? what were your thoughts on them? //

    1. Thanks Kaya! I’m really looking forward to them 😀 I’ve read so many positive reviews and it’s making my expectations higher than they probably should be haha. Oh well, at least I’ll have something to write about! Jen

      1. I response to most!! Most people call me Lily online- it’s a pet name from childhood that has basically become a part of me!
        All the bad apples certainly sounds great!!

      1. You’re welcome!! Awesome – I look forward to seeing your thoughts! I will definitely give it a go eventually since I will be doing a TMI reread in 2020 so it would be great after that at some point! 💜

    1. It’s started out really interesting and slowed down a bit but the world is still so well built and interesting. I’m keen to see how it picks up and where the characters are at the ending! Jen

    1. They’re surprisingly good! I feel like I’ve been so negative with my reviews lately so it’s great to have books I genuinely am enjoying and can share the love with 😀 I hope you enjoy them too!
