WWW Wednesday: January 13, 2021

WWW Wednesday is the post I look forward to every week and it is the last one of the year! Thanks, as always to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and this wonderful WWW post to keep me going. If you want to join me, just answer the three questions below about how your reading is going this week and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to admire. Don’t forget to check all the other participants. It is the #1 way I keep my TBR overflowing!


WHAT AM I CURRENTLY READING?

I am listening to Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi as an audiobook loan from my library. I have had a beautiful copy of this book on my shelf forever and I had intended to just listen long enough to get into the story but I am loving this audio version. I may just listen all the way to the end!

Why She Wrote is an ARC and it is supposed to be a graphic novel of famous female artists. While I have enjoyed everything I have read so far, it is not a graphic novel. More like an upper middle grade nonfiction with some illustrations.

The library also came through with Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer. I rewatched the movies a few months ago and I am already half way through this book. I find this series fascinating. Why do I like it so much, I just cannot help myself! It is the most enjoyable ridiculousness

I am still working through Thank You For Arguing and The History of Sweets. I couldn’t bring myself to give up on either of them (although I still think about it a lot). They are both books about things I love but I am not enjoying the way either are written.


WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?

This is two weeks worth of reading. I sat down at my computer during my lunch break last week to post my WWW and could not tear my eyes away from the news at the Capital.

Jane is Love by Rachel Givney was fantastic! It is a science fiction story of Jane Austen traveling through time and I loved it so much. I didn’t get a chance to review it before the new year and I just drew a line under everything from 2020 and moved on. Still, if you love Jane Austen and time travel, this one was super cute.

Pipsqueak was a book my neighbor lent me months ago assuring me it was “super weird and I would love it.” I am always so flattered when people care enough about me reading a book to lend me a physical copy. He was right. This mystery is very Stephanie Plum like (minus the never ending love triangle) and I plan to have a review up tomorrow for Throwback Thursday.

The Willoughbys Return by Lois Lowry was a book I was so excited to read and it was…disappointing. There were so many new characters and problems and nothing quite like the first book. Sigh.

D-Days Girls took me forever to read and it was worth it. This book lays out all of the women behind enemy lines in France who set the stage for a successful D-Day invasion. I struggled (as usual) to keep the women straight and, my only complaint, is that the authors of these books should put the chart of people in the front of the book. Why do they put it in the back? I always find it after being so confused!

Teen Titans Beast Boy by Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo was a little underwhelming but I am holding off judgment until I read both Raven and Beast Boy Loves Raven. I didn’t realize when I started reading it that Beast Boy is the middle book and I am holding out hope that reading these other two will elevate my opinion.

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig did not disappoint. My full review is here but, if you enjoy Haig’s other books, I think you will enjoy this one.

I tore through You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria. If you are looking for a contemporary romance with two great characters, this is one I highly recommend. My full review is here but, just know, I couldn’t put it down!

Finally, I finished reading (and re-reading) In Love & Pajamas by Catana Chetwynd. I was unfamiliar with Catana Comics before this book but count me in as a massive fan. This book is love love lovely! My full review is here.


WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

This is the only book I am certain I will read next. It is an eARC and the book is due to come out next month. Why do I leave things on my to-do list for so long?!?


Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?

  1. I read (and loved) The Gilded Wolves at the end of last year, but I never thought about the audiobook! It sounds like a wonderful experience, and I might have to think about that in order to reread it before the third book comes out.

    I’m so glad to see that you enjoyed The Midnight Library! I hope to start that this week, and did enjoy Haig’s “How To Stop Time,” so it sounds like it’ll be a good one for me. 😀

    1. The Midnight Library was just lovely. I closed it and just sat there. Such a poignant reminder of so many things. Jane was such fun! And, I cannot wait to start Three Ordinary Girls – I just need to break through the two nonfiction I have on the stack right now. I must pop over and see what you are up to this week!
