What is WWW Wednesday?

This weekly meme is originally hosted by Taking on a World of Words, and all you have to do is answer 3 simple questions that represents each W:

What are you currently reading?

What have you recently finished reading?

What do you plan to read next?

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading 4 books: 1 science-fiction, 2 fantasy and 1 contemporary. To be completely honest, I’m not very motivated with the first 3 books, but I’m still going to read them even if I take more time to finishe them. So here’s what I’m currently reading:

  1. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
    This book was borrowed from a good friend who told me she loved the story. I have to admit I’m a bit intimidated by this book not only because it is over 800 pages, but it’s genre is science-fiction (which I’m not the biggest fan of). I’m trying to keep an open mind while reading this, but I’m still a bit intimidated. I also picked this book as a challenge for this month just because I would probably struggle a bit… but I have faith in myself, so fingers crossed!
  2. A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
    I’m still reading this one and I admit I lost a bit of interest in the story. I don’t know if my enthusiasm died a bit or the story slowed down to the point that I’m not that interested anymore, but I’m reading it VERY slowly. I need to finish this to pick the next book in the series that is on my TBR for this month!
  3. Descendant of the Crane by Joan He
    This book was calling me and I answered. The bad thing is that I haven’t paid too much attention to it yet. I haven’t made a lot of progress, but I promise I’ll be more commited and I’ll give it more love from now on!
  4. The Good Girls by Claire Eliza Bartlett
    I just recently started this and I still don’t have a lot of thoughts about it. But I think this will be a fairly easy book to go through since the chapters are so short. I hope the story is good!

What have you recently finished reading?

I’ve read some amazing books these past days! Here’s 3 I finished recently:

  1. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden: 6/5⭐
    The best book I have ever read. There, I said it. I recently read this and I felt so sad when the story ended because I didn’t want it to end. I frantically searched for more books from the same author, but unfortunately he didn’t write any more complete novels. I’m so happy I read this book and I know I’ll reread it for the rest of my life.
  2. Little Darlings by Melanie Golding: 3.5/5⭐
    This was… disturbing. But I honestly like the story a lot. The motherhood aspect in this book is something I will never forget… as well as the creepy moments!
  3. The Night Swim by Erin Morgenstern: 4.25/5⭐
    I knew this was marked as a thriller but it was way darker than I thought it would be. I felt incredibly sad after reading this book, but I don’t regret it. It’s really good and it deals with very serious topics that are worth talking about. Highly recommend it.

What do you plan to read next?

  1. If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin
    This is on my priority TBR list! I want to read this book so badly… but I need to be patient and finish some of my current reads first. 🙂
  2. Sunkissed by Kasie West
    I mean… it’s a Kasie West book, what else would you expect from me. I devour Kasie West’s books like no man’s business and this one will not be an exception. I’ll definitely be reading it soon.

What about you guys? What are you planning to read, currently reading and have read lately? Let me know! And if you did a WWW Wednesday, comment the link so I can check yours out!

Thank you for reading and stay safe!

WWW Wednesday | 7th April 2021

Hi guys, I hope you’re all doing well 🙂

Today I’m starting something new. I kept seeing some of my amazing blogger friends such as Mani’s Book Corner blog, Georgia’s Lost in Neverland blog and Tessa Talks Books blog doing WWW Wednesday posts, and that inspired me to do it myself! I honestly don’t think I’ll post it every Wednesday, but I still want to do it from time to time.

What is WWW Wednesday?

This is a weekly meme originally hosted by Taking on a World of Words, and all you have to do is answer three simple questions that represents each W:

What are you currently reading?

What have you recently finished reading?

What do you plan to read next?

So let’s see this week’s answers!

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading six books – and yes, I know, I’m crazy. But don’t worry, this is how I usually function and it works well for me! I like having variety while reading because this way I can switch stories according to my mood. So here’s what I’m currently reading:

  1. A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
    I’m loving this series so much! I’m currently about 1/5 in and so far I’m liking it a lot. The style didn’t change compared to other books, so I already know I’m going to love this! I’m not sure when I’ll be done with this because it’s a huge book, but hopefully I’ll still finish it this month.
  2. The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
    I swear this book is neverending. I considered DNFing this, but I really want to finish it still! Right now I’m trying to read a few pages a day just to keep it going, but I’m definitely not motivated. The writing is beautiful, but I’m bored and the story isn’t that interesting to me. So I don’t even know when I’ll be done with this book, but it probably won’t be soon.
  3. The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune
    This is such a cute book! I’m about 1/4 in and I’m impressed with the story. This is such an interesting and unique book, and I hope it continues this way. So far so good, I’m enjoying it!
  4. Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wroebel
    I’m loving this book! I’m about 1/3 in and I’m super invested in the story. I’m not 100% sure if this is right, but I feel like the story is based on Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s life. The story is fiction, but it’s very similar to what happened to her. We’ll see how it goes, but I’m really liking it so far!
  5. We Are the Wildcats by Siobhan Vivian
    This book is starting to get painful. I even considered DNFing this, but I also really want to finish it. It’s just so painfully slow and there are like six girl POVs, so it gets confusing and I mixed the girls up. I’m not loving it and to be honest, I’m not expecting it to get better, but I’m still hopeful!
  6. Namesake (Fable #2) by Adrienne Young
    This is one of my most anticipated books for this year, and I’m currently reading it. I haven’t made a lot of progress yet, but I’m enjoying it so far. I missed Fable’s story and I hope this conclusion to the duology is good! I’ve heard great things about this one, so I have high hopes.

What have you recently finished reading?

These are the last three books I finished:

  1. Horrid by Katrina Leno: 3.75/5⭐
    I liked Horrid, but it is not the best book I have ever read. The story is entertaining, but there are some things that could be better (especially regarding the characters and the plot). For a horror book, it wasn’t too strong but there were definitely some creepy moments here and there. You can find the full review here!
  2. Kill Joy (A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder #0.5) by Holly Jackson: 5/5
    I wasn’t planning on reading this book, but it was so short that I figured I could read it quickly… and that’s exactly what happened! I absolutely loved it and it exceeded all my expectations. I’m such a huge fan of the series and this was just at the same level, even though it was a novella. I even said in my review (that will also be up soon!) that this is probably my favorite novella of all time – and that’s saying a lot!
  3. The Stolen Kingdom by Jillian Boehme: 4/5⭐
    I didn’t start The Stolen Kingdom this month, but I finished it in April. I got this e-arc from NetGalley and it surprised me how much I liked it. The only major down point for me was the romance, but overall I enjoyed it and I thought the story was very unique and creative. You can find my full review on The Stolen Kingdom here!

What do you plan to read next?

I don’t know yet, but I can say Under The Lights (Field Party #2) by Abbi Glines is calling my name! I also hope I’ll be able to pick up The Midnight Library by Matt Haig soon! The last one is part of my TBR list for April 🙂

I hope you liked this post! What are you guys currently reading, finished reading or are planning to read in the near future? Tell me in the comments, and leave your WWW Wednesday link if you have one so I can check it out!

Thank you for reading!
