WWW Wednesday June 13, 2018


It is Wednesday! I have not participated in a WWW Wednesday for a while but it is always a great way to jump start my reading organization. And, as I head into the end of June and start thinking of my 2018 challenges, I know I need to be more organized! So, thanks as always goes to Sam at Taking on a World of Words for hosting this so I can have some semblance of organization. Here we go!

What did I just finish reading?

Well, since I haven’t participated in a WWW for a month I’m not sure what qualifies as “just” finished so I just update you all! Here are the books I read in the past month. I hit the jackpot in that almost every book I read I loved enough to review.

For non-fiction I started reading a chapter a day (at least) and that took me through Ask an Astronaut by Tim Peake, The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell by W. Kamau Bell and The Book of Joy by The Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu and Douglas Abrams. I finally finished The Book of Joy! It has been featured on my WWW list for far too long.

I also enjoyed a bunch of graphic novels including BrazenAmerican Born Chinese, The Prince and the Dressmaker and Be Prepared. I am loving the graphic novels and how incredibly diverse they are.

I also read Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyumi, Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner and both Love books by Jenna Evans Welch. Whew!

What am I currently reading?

I am still using my one chapter a day tactic to work through non-fiction. I am currently really enjoying Grit by Angela Duckworth. It is a fascinating examination of a facet of our personality that I never really thought about before. I started Stiff by Mary Roach at least a year ago and never finished it so I am determined to get to the end of the interesting look at how we use human cadavers. Since I am also knee deep in iZombie on Netflix it feels like a natural connection. I just started A Problematic Paradox this week because I am determined to work through my physical TBR!

What do I plan to read next?

Speaking of that physical TBR….it is still in a shameful state. I have made a summer challenge for myself to help reinvigorate my 2018 beat the backlist challenge. Both Stiff and A Problematic Paradox are books I purchased and then stuck on my shelf. It is a bad habit. I do have a collection of Captain Marvel books from the library that I am working through but my next reads will definitely be off my home library shelf. If you want head on over to see my big (alphabetized) TBR list and let me know what you think I should crack into next!

Tell me, please!

What is on your WWW for this week / month / summer?

  1. I have loved the look of Love & Gelato since I first saw it a while ago. And I guess Love & Luck follows it.

    Jennifer Weiner is a favorite, and Good in Bed was one of my earlier picks from her. And that reminds me that I have another of hers, still unread: Hungry Heart.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.


  2. I’m glad you liked Children of Blood and Bone, I really loved everything about that book! I love Jenna Evans Welch’s book covers, but I’ve never read one of her books. Would they be good summer reads? Stiff is also on my nightstand, one of the next ones I’m going to pick up SOON (I hope).


    1. Jenna Evan Welch’s two Love books are perfect summer reads. I preferred Gelato but found myself really cheering for the characters in Luck. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Stiff – I find her humor interspersed throughout a good stress buster but others have been offended. So very interesting either way. Thanks for visiting!

  3. Whew! When I first saw that huge list of books, I thought that was what you read just this week. I was floored! I’ll admit, I was a bit relieved to find out it’s your finished list from the last month instead. Doesn’t make me feel so inadequate, lol.

    I haven’t read any of these books myself, but I see a couple books on there that I really want to read – namely Children of Blood and Bone and the Love series by Jenna Evans Welch. I’m glad to see you liked both! 🙂


    1. I am trying to do better about posting reviews more frequently but that means that I was missing out on the WWW – hence the massive pile of books! Hah! Children of Blood and Bone is excellent while the Love books are sweet and fun. It struck a good balance. Happy reading!
