WWW Wednesday: 22nd May 2019

The WWW Wednesday meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.

WWW Wednesday

To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:

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

Currently ReadingHow to Be Famous

My NetGalley request for How To Be Famous by Caitlin Moran was approved at the end of last week so I couldn’t resist starting it pretty much immediately. It’s the sequel to How To Build A Girl, a book I read a couple of years ago and absolutely loved. Main character Johanna is most definitely one of a kind and a lot of the things she comes out with are either shocking or absolutely hilarious (and often both). I’m only around 25% through so far as I struggled a little at the start (a bit too much social commentary and not enough action) but getting into it now.

Recently Finished

Skyward (Skyward, #1)Top SecretFinding Audrey

It’s been a pretty awesome reading week with three books finished and each of them almost in one sitting (there has been some binge reading).  Skyward by Brandon Sanderson did take me a little longer but only because I had to go to work. I could have very happily disappeared into the world Sanderson created. I will admit the story is possibly a little longer than it needs to be but I loved it regardless. There’s something classic and a bit epic about it. Not sure how I’m going to manage the wait for a sequel.

Skyward did leave me with a bit of a book hangover but I spied Top Secret by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy on Amazon and decided to splurge. Him is one of my all time fave M/M romances so I was very excited when I found out they were teaming up for a new one. I probably didn’t love Top Secret as much as Him but it made for addictive and enjoyable reading.

The third and final book read was Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella. I love Kinsella and this had been sitting on my TBR for a while. Have to admit it’d been sitting on my TBR for so long I’d forgotten what it was about but that may not have been the worst thing as it was quite nice going in blind. It’s actually a YA story about a girl with severe anxiety and depression so not always the easiest of reads but there’s a lot of humour in it too and it deals with the condition quite sensitively.

Reading Next

I started a new reading challenge on Monday so I’m planning to read I Heart New York and Magic Bites for a couple of the tasks. Both of these have been on my TBR for a while so it’ll be nice to finally knock a couple of books off the backlist. I also really want to pick up One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence. I’ve heard lots of great things about it.

Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1)I Heart New York (I Heart, #1)One Word Kill (Impossible Times, #1)

Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.

Happy Reading ❤

    • It surprised me how much I enjoyed it. I vaguely remember hearing some not so great reviews when it first came out but I thought it was really funny.

      I’d definitely read a sequel.

  1. I tried reading One Word Kill recently and couldn’t quite get into it, so I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts. A colleague recommended Ilona Andrews’ books to me so long ago and I really should get around to reading some of them.

    • I read one of Ilona Andrews other series and enjoyed it and tried to read another and didn’t so fingers crossed for Magic Bites.

      I’ve seen some great reviews for One Word Kill but have to admit I’ve been a little on the fence about reading it. I don’t always get on with sci fi

    • Skyward was brilliant. Maybe not the most original of stories but reminded me of the books and films I love.

      Finding Audrey was a lot of fun despite the seriousness of some of the issues. I do love Sophie Kinsella

    • I loved Skyward but waiting is probably a wise decision. It’s not that Skyward doesn’t have a proper ending, just that I want to stay with the characters and I was enjoying myself. I think it’s going to be a trilogy so who knows how long the wait will be for the final book.

      • If I can get my hands on a book and read it early, I do (and then I suffer an even longer wait), but I figure it’s been this long and I haven’t picked it up yet, so why not wait a few more months and read them together … and THEN suffer a bit while waiting for the next one lol. I would estimate at the end of 2020, since that seems to be the pattern.

    • It’s terrible but I keep starting the I Heart series but never make it past the first few pages before going off and reading something else. Supposed to be going to see the author in less than 2 weeks so feel like I should just do it. Once I get into it I know I’ll enjoy it.

      Finding Audrey was great. I definitely recommend
