Hello everyone! Hope you’re all good and safe!
WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. This consists of answering three questions:
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What are you currently reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
This is my first WWW Wednesday and yes I know I’m two days late. I completely forgot about it until now (*face palm*). Great start…
What did you recently finish reading?
- These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner – 4/5 stars
I have no read a YA sci-fi book in a while…well except Illuminae but besides that I rarely pick them up. I found this on my shelf, pretty sure it had been sitting there for a few years now, and as I saw one of the authors was Amie Kaufman I knew I just had to give this a shot. It turned out to be a great surprise and I flew through the audio book (I listened to the audiobook while reading along).
- The Wallflower Wager by Tessa Dare – 4/5 stars
Tessa Dare my go-to for a comfort fun, historical romance read. As usual I found myself smiling and laughing quietly to myself. It also covered a more heavier topic.
TW: childhood sexual abuse
What are you currently reading?
I’m in that mood where I’m finding it hard to stick to one thing and have been picking up books with only short essays.
- It’s Not OK to Feel Blue (and Other Lies) by Scarlett Curtis
I’m not rushing myself through this book. It consists in short essays about people’s experience with mental health. I read a few essays here and there and appreciate each one. There’s so many variations of mental health and this is a good book to help understand that.
- The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
I’m happy to pick this up again. I only put it down because I was prioritising other books. I’m really enjoying this. All written in verse and I’m sad that I can’t find the audiobook. It’s recommended but it seems to not be available anywhere for me.
- Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Tales of Extraordinary Women by Elena Favilli, Francesca Cavallo
This is a nice audiobook to pick up and sometimes listen with my siblings in the car. I’ve always wanted to buy the book but when I saw on Libby that there’s an audiobook version I knew I had to try it. It includes as it says 100 stories of extraordinary women in history and they are short, in the audiobook are only a few minutes for each women. It’s enough to pique your interest and leaves you wanting to research about them all.
- Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History by Vashti Harrison
It’s very similar to the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls but this focuses solely on Black women in history. It’s a great way to get to know extraordinary Black women in history and hearing their influence. I’m listening to the audiobook and it’s only slightly under an hour and a half. It’s amazing hearing all their stories.
What do you think you’ll read next?
- A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
I need to start this one as it’s the one up next on my TBR for the #MakeYourMythTaker readathon. I’m really looking forward to this as it’s a Beauty and the Beast retelling.
What are your current reads?
Until next time…
