WWW Wednesday #4

These are seriously some of my favorite posts to write, so excuse me if I seem to ramble on… 🙂

WWW Wednesday is a blog meme started by Should By Reading. In this blog post, I’ll answer the following 3 questions:

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

Here we go!

  • What are you currently reading?

I try to stay one (or two) steps ahead of the game when it comes to posting reviews on my blog. I’ve been pretty consistent and post 2 reviews a week just in case I get a lull in reading or am in a reading slump. Anyway, here’s what I’m currently reading:

I picked Tell Me Things Things from my TBR jar a few days ago. I read Buxbaum’s What to Say Next before this one, which I enjoyed, so I have high hopes for Tell Me Three Things. I’m barely halfway through, but I am enjoying it so far, though there are a few things that turn me off.

I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about Illuminae. The physical book looks crazy intimidating, so I decided to listen to the audiobook instead. I know that the book has a unique writing style and format, so I’m afraid some things may get lost in translation (loosely speaking). But it’s definitely fun to listen to so far and because I own the physical book, I peeked inside to see the format. It’s so interesting! I hope it’s good enough for me to want to continue the series. 🙂

  • What did you recently finish reading?

A List of Cages by Robin Roe was such an emotional read. My review for it will be posted tomorrow, but wow! It’s so hard to describe a book like this, especially because of the content (trigger warning: child abuse). I won’t say anymore, but if you haven’t picked up this book, please do!

I started Illuminae after I finished listening to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. My review of that book will be up next week. I did enjoy it, and it’s the first time I’ve read about a half-white, half-Korean main character (like me!). Again, I won’t say anything else–you’ll just have to keep an eye out for my review! But I will say I did want to start it because I know the movie is in the works for it! 🙂

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Haha. Funny thing you should ask. Having a set TBR is so hard for me. Even though I’m a creature of habit and surprises are a no-go for me, I don’t mind it with my books (hence my TBR Jar). But I do have a few books in mind:

I picked up Three Sides of a Heart at the Oklahoma Teen Book Con a few weeks ago. While I don’t normally read anthologies, this one has a few authors that I’ve enjoyed, so I’m willing to give it a try. It releases on December 19, 2017.

A publisher contacted me about Between the Blade and the Heart and gave me access to the title via NetGalley. It releases on January 2, 2018. I haven’t read anything by Amanda Hocking, but this one sounds fun, and I know I’m going to enjoy the mythology aspect of it.

I’ve tried nearly everything short of asking the publisher personally to get an ARC of A Treacherous Curse by Deanne Rayborn. It’s the third book in the Veronica Speedwell series, the story of a young, very independent Victorian woman. I picked up the first book, A Curious Beginning, at the local library and loved it. Then I requested an eARC of the second book, A Perilous Undertaking which I loved even more. So imagine my delight when–yes!–I finally have an early copy of the third book which releases on January 16, 2018 (the day before my birthday!).

Anyway, who knows about my TBR list! I don’t at times, so we’ll see if there are any changes. I checked out some books from the library, so you might see those splashed in here somewhere, too. But for now, that’s all I have! 😛

    I considered Illuminae on audio but I wasn’t sure how it would even work as an ebook so ended up buying a physical copy. I’ve also bought the second book but as yet haven’t read either. Will be interested to see your review.
