WWW Wednesdays #80 – March 2nd

wwwwednesdaysWWW WEDNESDAYS is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words and is all about answering the three questions below.

  • WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

I’m still reading The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton and so far I’m really enjoying it. The only reason I haven’t finished it yet is that my reading slump is making it hard to concentrate for a long time and I have been reading ‘easy’ reads instead… So that’s why I decided to start reading Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell as well. It’s a short read so I will probably finish it today.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

* The first book I finished was All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I always enjoy a good historical fiction WWII story and this one has to be one of my all time favorites. Such a beautifully written story!
* I then read Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson, which ended up being a very interesting read with a lot of funny moments. Warning: make sure to read it when nobody is around because you will probably laugh out loud!
* I also finally picked up my first Spanish read in ages: Bestiario by Julio Cortázar. I really liked the combination of ordinary things with magical realism elements… But I have to be honest and say that some stories were a lot better than others.
* The last book I finished is The Secrets Of Lake Road by Karen Katchur, a book I picked up on a whim and turned out to be a really quick read.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I might pick up Random by Tom Leveen depending of which genre I’m in the mood for… Although I will probably start my Red Queen series marathon by reading the first of two novellas Queen Song. In case I don’t want fantasy, I have Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover lined up as well; The Liar’s Chair by Rebecca Whitney is still my latest TBR jar pick.

    • I still have to read Tina Fey’s book, but know I’m definitely looking forward to it even more. Furiously Happy is a very interesting mix of humor and darker elements (mental ilness) and definitely made me laugh out loud. Luckily I was at home so it wasn’t that embarrassing. 😉

    • Haha I know the feeling; I had the exact same reaction when I first heard about the title! It’s actually a short story she wrote for World Book Day and really entertaining. 😀 I’m looking forward to read my second Colleen Hoover book soon! I loved November 9 even though I normally don’t read a lot of romance.

  1. I’ve never heard of Kindred Spirit. Is it a short story? Glad you had the same ‘problem’ as me laughing at Jenny Lawson. I adore her humor. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    • Yes! Kindred Spirits is a new short story she wrote for World Book Day; very entertaining. I really enjoyed reading Furiously Happy and I agree that her humor is really contagious. I’ve added her first memoir to my wishlist! Happy reading and thanks for hosting! 😀

    • Rainbow Rowell released Kindred Spirits last month for World Book Tag; it’s a short story and definitely entertaining.
      All The Light We Cannot See is without doubt one of the best WWII stories I’ve read to this date. 🙂
