WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words in which you answer three simple questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
The beginning of June has been quite slow reading wise for me, or at least it feels that way. I feel like I have so many books I want to get to, but a very limited amount of hours during the day to actually read. I started at my summer job three days ago, and I have been very busy. But I’m still reading, and that’s what makes me happy: I was worried I was getting into a reading slump, but I realized I’m simply tired. It’ll get better in a few days and I can’t wait for all the books I’m going to read this month.
⛅ What I’m currently reading: Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I think I’m going to finish reading this novel very soon, and I’ve been enjoying it so much. It’s a ray of sunshine at the end of my day with its funny moments but also emotional and heartfelt scenes. I have laughed a lot reading it, but I have also felt so many different emotions. 💖 I have a lot of love for these characters, and I’m so curious to see where the story is going to go. I was suddenly in the mood for a contemporary novel, which is so rare I can’t remember the last time it actually happened, and I’m so glad I picked up Red, White & Royal Blue.
⛅ What I recently finished reading: The Lovely and The Lost by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
This novel was one of my most anticipated novels of the year, and I loved it. I rated it ⭐⭐⭐⭐; I loved the characters, it was so easy to get attached to them. I was sad to say goodbye to them at the end, and I would have loved to spend a lot more time with them. I enjoyed the mystery a lot, I was definitely surprised by the turn it took and all the little clues and history the characters had. I love the family bonds and the friendships portrayed as well. I would have simply liked the novel to be a bit longer and to have more closure at the end. I also listened to this novel on audiobook, which I’ve never done before. I tried listening to one once, but never actually finished it. It was a different reading experience, and I loved the narrator a lot. I tried multitasking while listening to it, but I couldn’t focus so I mostly just listened and I overall really enjoyed it. I don’t think I’ll listen to audiobooks often, but I’m happy I did with The Lovely and The Lost.
⛅ What I might read next: Eclipse the Skies by Maura Milan
I usually say I can’t decide which book I’m going to read next, and have a few options. This week however, I’m sure my next read is going to be Eclipse the Skies. I loved the first novel in this duology, Ignite the Stars, and I have been looking forward to the sequel ever since. It comes out in September, and I was ready to read it then, but I was so lucky to be accepted for an ARC on Edelweiss. 💙 I’m not prepared to read the ending, but I’m definitely prepared to cry. Endings of series are always really emotional for me, and I cry. But I’m really excited to get back to this universe and see what the story holds.
