Hey, book lovers! Another Wednesday has come and almost gone over on this side of the world. Today I’ll be posting my first WWW Wednesday, which is a meme hosted by Taking on A World of Words. This meme is about answering these three questions:
- What did you read last?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you read next?
So, without further ado, here is what’s happening in my book world right now!
What did you read last?
I just finished two books the other day: an e-ARC for Suddenly Single by Carol Wyer and One of Us is Lying by Karen M McManus. Both books were very different from each other but both were enjoyable, although I enjoyed the latter much more. Suddenly Single was cute and empowering, although the romance aspect left me wanting. This book comes out 08 April 2019 so I’ll be posting a full review up soon! It took me a while to read, and even though I enjoyed it, it wasn’t a favorite. On the other hand, I read One of Us is Lying in about 6 hours! I think this was my first YA Thriller/Mystery and I really enjoyed the Breakfast Club meets Gossip Girl meets How To Get Away With Murder vibes of the story. I’m not a complete noob when it comes to mysteries/thrillers, but this one actually kept me guessing up until the 60% mark, when it all came rushing together. I look forward to checking out her other book: Two Can Keep A Secret!
What are you currently reading?
I finally decided to pick up The Bear and The Nightingale by Katherine Arden. I’ve been reading a lot of romance and chicklit lately, and I’ve missed immersing myself in fantasy, so I’m quite eager to get lost in this. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the Winternight Trilogy, so I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone’s talking about. Plus, the books are all out, so there’s zero waiting time between the first, second and last book, if I end up loving this! Work has been tiring me out the last few days, so if I don’t make much headway during the weekday, I’ll be able to read interruption free this weekend. (I can’t wait!)
What will you read next?
Since March was such a great reading month, I’m hoping that April will be too! After I finish my current read, I’m hoping to get to these three books, whether that’ll be at the same time or one after the other will depend entirely on my mood! The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo, Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker. All of these books have been crazily hyped on bookstagram so I’ve been very excited to get my hands on them. I’m not sure which one to read first though… I’ve been wanting to read The Dreamers since the beginning of the year, but I’ve heard mixed reviews. Daisy Jones & The Six is a recent almost immediate favorite by everyone and their mother, and while I love TJR and haven’t been disappointed with the two books of hers that I’ve read, I’m still a little apprehensive about diving into this one so quickly. Lastly, I’ve heard The Night Tiger is a beautiful novel filled with magical realism, and set in the neighbouring country to mine, Malaysia. Oddly enough, I actually haven’t read many books that have roots in Southeast Asia, so I think this’ll be interesting! Any thoughts into what you think I should read next?
