#WWWWednesday: 24 July

Omg, is it only Wednesday?! Welp, my brain keeps tricking me into believing it’s Thursday and that there’s only one more day standing between me and my beloved weekend. Well, on that note, it’s time for another WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words, which means I’ll be talking about:

  1. What did you read last?
  2. What are you currently reading?
  3. What will you read next?

What did you read last?

This weekend I finished reading The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah (solid 5 stars!) and in the very early hours of this morning, I finished my first read for The Reading Rush: Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. Y’all, I’m really sorry to say this, but I didn’t love it as much as everyone else seemed to and trust me, no one is more disappointed about it than me. While the last 30% of the book really shifted my feelings about it and I did leave the book feeling, lifted, warm and happy, it still wasn’t enough for me to give it more than 3½ stars. I’ll be posting my review for both these books in the coming days, so keep your eyes out for it! Finishing RW&RB means I can tick my first prompt for the RR challenge: ☑️Read an author’s first book!

What are you currently reading?

I’m putting all my other reads aside for now and I’m focusing on these next three reads, which are also for The Reading Rush this week, not to mention my buddy read for TIHIAI is coming up this Sunday so I really gotta get going with this read! Here’s the list of challenges that I’m reading these books for:

Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan: Read a book with purple on the cover
Everyone’s an Aliebn When You’re an Aliebn Too by Jomny Sun: Read a book in the same spot the entire time and Read a book with a non-human main character
This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel: Pick a book that has five or more words in the title

What will you read next?

After my current reads, I still have two other books (three if you count reading seven books for the challenge), plus my buddy read for A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult. The other books and prompts for the RR challenge are:

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo: Read a book you meant to read last year
The Green Mile by Stephen King: Read and watch a book to movie adaptation
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein: Bonus/ Read 7 books

What are you currently reading?
Have you made good progress on your Reading Rush TBR?

  1. Ugh, I hate when I think it’s later in the week than it really is. Such a letdown! I can understand your feelings about RW&RB. It has been so insanely hyped as if it’s the Best Book Ever. And maybe for some it is! I enjoyed it and gave it 4 stars, but it definitely wasn’t a 5 star read for me. I can’t wait to start The Great Alone! I seriously love Kristin Hannah. She is an amazing story teller. Good luck with The Reading Rush!

    • It was… Really…. No. Not for me 😭I was expecting cute things but I’m sorry, it was NOT cute. The MC was wholly frustrating and so selfish it made me want to smack her! Ok wow, I thought giving myself days to calm down about how frustrated and URGH I felt about this book would make the feels subside. Obviously not LOL

      How’re you finding Priory? I’ve also heard quite a few mixed reviews about it!

        • I’m surprised that I didn’t hear a lot of bad reviews it. It’s only the more that I looked on GR after finishing that I found them all hiding under the glowing reviews 😂

          Ooh, nice one! It’s definitely a chunky one lol Looking forward to reading your review of it (if you’ll review it)!
