WWW Wednesdays #95 – June 15th

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?

wwwjun15th2016currently

The only reason I haven’t finished The Munich Girl by Phyliss Edgerly Ring yet is that I don’t have a lot of time to read, because I’m really enjoying this historical fiction story so far. Hopefully I will be able to finish it before the weekend! And I haven’t actually read any new pages of A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas since last week, so process is still minimum. It’s not that I don’t want to read it, but I wanted to finish other books first.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

Three books sounds like a lot when I didn’t have a lot of time, but when I wrote last WWW I had the first title already almost finished… And the other two are a collection of short stories and a novella, so supposedly ‘quick’ to read.
* I really enjoyed the Sherlock Holmes retelling A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro, and I will definitely be looking out for the sequel. Fast-paced, entertaining and it really shows the main characters were based on the original duo.
* The Opposite Of Loneliness by Marina Keegan wasn’t as good as I was hoping for, but I guess that was mostly because I didn’t realize there was going to be a fiction part. I didn’t really like the fiction stories in general, although there were a few exceptions. The non fiction essays are really good though.
* I don’t like to say this about any book or novella, but reading Heart Of Tin by Danielle Paige was simply a waste of time. I REALLY didn’t like this sappy romance story where all that happens is that the Tin Woodman pines over Dorothy and tries to win her over… But since I’ve been promised this is the worst novella and the others are better, I will still read the next two.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I have a new ARC pending:Cascadia by H.W. “Buzz” Bernard. It promises to be an adrenaline-filled suspense story about the after effects of extreme natural events (in this case a massive earthquake and tsunami), and I’m definitely looking forward to read it soon. And I decided to keep both Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum and The Ex by Alafair Burke on my list since they sound like really entertaining and ‘easy’ reads (which is something I need right now since I don’t have a lot of spare time to read). My newest TBR jar pick is The Hired Girl by Laura Amy Schlitz.

WWW Wednesdays #94 – June 8th

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?

Basically, I haven’t been having a lot of free time to read, so I’m still reading A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro even though I really enjoy the story so far. I’m hoping to finish it today though! I also have The Opposite Of Loneliness by Marina Keegan and A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas on my currently reading list, although the process with both books is so minimum that I can’t say anything constructive yet.

  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

Wait, only one book finished since last week?! I don’t think this has happened in a long time… I definitely wasn’t lying when I said I didn’t have a lot of time to read. 😦 I finished More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera though, which took me ages to read because I didn’t really enjoy the first part of the book. I actually thought about DNFing at one point, but I’m glad I continued reading because the last part of the book was really good.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

I still have the following ARC pending:The Munich Girl by Phyllis Edgerly Ring. I love historical fiction set during WWII, so I’m looking forward to start reading it as soon as I finish my current reads. And since I don’t have a lot of time to read I decided to put some ‘easy’ and entertaining looking reads next; I’ve heard great things about both Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum and The Ex by Alafair Burke, so I can’t wait to read them myself. My newest TBR jar pick is The Hired Girl by Laura Amy Schlitz, which works out perfectly because it’s a historical fiction read set in the 1910s, which is one of the periods I still needed for the When Are You Reading? challenge.
