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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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 ❤
