WWW Wednesdays #65 – November 18th

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

  • WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

I’ve decided to put Outlander by Diana Gabaldon on hold for now because I don’t seem to have enough time… So I’m currently reading only one book (it’s a miracle!): Winter by Marissa Meyer. I have been looking forward to this read ever since I finished Cress, and so far it’s just as good as I was hoping for.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

Three finished titles this week; not bad at all!
* The first is George by Alex Gino, a Goodreads Choice Awards finalist and definitely worth reading even though the prose can come over a bit childish at points. It has a very strong message…
* I picked up Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli afterwards and I have to say I absolutely loved this read. I wish I had gotten a copy sooner, because this book is simply brilliant!
* The last book I finished is The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes. I think romance fans will probably love this read, but I’m not a fan of the genre and thought part of the plot was quite predictable as well.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I will start Melophobia (ARC) by James Morris as soon as I’ve finished Winter. I also want to try and read The Death Code by Lindsay Cummings so I can finish another series, and I have been looking forward to Between Shades Of Gray by Ruth Sepetys as well. (I might actually read the second one first because it’s been I while since I’ve read a book during WWII.) And my next TBR jar pick is still Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple.

WWW Wednesdays #64 – November 11th

I started The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes during the weekend because I needed a light read, but I wasn’t really overwhelmed by it… So I decided to finish Six Of Crows first before continuing with this one. At least it’s a fast read so I will probably finish it soon. I still haven’t picked up Outlander by Diana Gabaldon again; not because I’m not enjoying it, but there are a few other books I want to finish first before fully commiting to this giant.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

Four books finished this week and three of them are over 400 pages… I guess I will have to “thank” the wisdom tooth extraction for extra free time. 😉
* The first is The Valentine Circle by Reinaldo DelValle. I got this one as a kindle freebie a few months back and it turned out to be an interesting, although not great read.
* I then picked up my copy of Carry On by Rainbow Rowell as pain medication, and it worked perfectly. I absolutely loved this read and I have the feeling it will end up on my 2015 favorites list.
* I needed another light read afterwards, so I decided to read Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling. I don’t really watch her shows, but I enjoyed reading it anyway. Her essays are both funny and feel ‘real’…
* I decided to continue with Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo afterwards. The tricky names make it hard to follow the story in the beginning, but as always Leigh Bardugo doesn’t disappoint. Her prose is simply brilliant!

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I have a new ARC lined up to be read: Melophobia by James Morris. I’m also probably going to ignore my November TBR and read Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli; I have been wanting to get a copy for ages and I can’t wait to finally read it. George by Alex Gino is high on my list as well, especially since it has been nominated for the Goodreads Choice Awards… And my next TBR jar pick is still Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple.
