WWW Wednesdays 7-25-2017

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme that was previously hosted by Should Be Reading and is now hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

To play along you just had to answer the following three questions:

  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

So, let’s get started!

Recently Finished

It’s been a rather productive week! I am working on Booktube-A-Thon, and I am working through this TBR list I wrote up this weekend.

On Friday, I finished We Could Be Beautiful by Swan Huntley. This was an ARC that ended up on my backlist. The writing is beautiful, but I wanted to punch the character in the face. Check out my review for more.

On Monday, I finished Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker. This comes out on August 8th and I was pleasantly surprised by it.

I am so close to finishing the audiobook of The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty that I am going to put it here because I will probably finish it today.

Currently Reading


This week is Booktube-a-Thon so I am trying to complete some challenges as well as get some of the books off my TBR and backlist.

I am on the last third of The Vegetarian by Han Kang, and I hope to finish it today. It’s a very odd book and I am not entirely sure how I am going to review it.

For the “read an entire book outside challenge” I am reading Almost Famous Women by Megan Mayhew Bergman. My logic being that, since it’s short stories, I can pick it up and put it down when it’s either a) dark or b) raining and read a novel at night and when I am in the car or waiting somewhere.

I also started Indelible by Adelia Saunders. I only read the very first short chapter, and it’s not really my priority right now, we’ll see if I finish it this week.

What Am I Reading Next?


So many options, only four days left in the week! Still hoping to get some Booktube-A-Thon challenges completed.

For my “read a book in a day” challenge, I picked Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf. It’s around 150 pages and looks manageable.

I need a new audiobook, so I am thinking that I will listen to A Madness so Discreet by Mindy McGinnis. It’s been in my audio TBR pile for a while now and I am dying to look up The Female of the Species by this author.

Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer will probably be my next read, only because it’s so different, and also short. Perfect for a readathon.

So that’s roughly where I am this week! What are you guys reading this week? Are any of you participating in Booktube-A-Thon this week?

  1. I post my weekly reader status on Wednesdays, but I like this brief idea 😊

    I just finished, as in a few hours ago at lunch, The Scorpion Rules, first book in the Prisoners of Peace series by Erin Bow. It was near perfect but for some foibles of characterization with side characters. I also finished the first part of Colleen Hoover’s Never Never, which is gripping. I’m on the middle of the second part.

    I’m currently reading six books right now. It was seven, but I just finished the one fore mentioned above. Besides Never Never, I’m reading Tales of the Arabian Nights, which is incredibly racist. Oh. My. God. Then A Torch Against the Night, second book in Sabaa Tahir’s amazing An Ember in the Ashes series; The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess manga; The Archived by Victoria Schwab; and Incognito, a book about brain processes that’s pretty good despite some enraging sexism.

    I’m planning on reading Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor next along with a slew of others that I can’t reall now, but they’re on my TBR list.


      1. I keep notes! I have to, and I have when I’m going to read them scheduled out on my day planner. I’d honestly be lost without hat app lol. What I normally do is read two Kindle books, and I’ll read a chapter at lunch. Then I have physical fantasy/fiction, a classic, and a reference, which used to be it, so I’d read five at a time. But then I wanted to add graphic novels into the mix, so I figured out where to fit them in, and then I wanted to start utilizing my local library, so I’ll usually borrow one book from there at a time!

        I really want to find a day planner app that also has a web version that syncs to the phone, because that would be amazing.
