WWW Wednesday – November 25, 2020

This is my first time doing a WWW Wednesday so I hope I do it properly!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Taking on a World of Words, where you answer the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What have you recently finished?
  • What are you reading next?

Currently Reading

I’m technically in the middle of severals books but I’m only going to count the ones that I’m currently active on.

Tiger Eye by Marjorie M. Liu

I started this yesterday and I hope to finish it today! I got this book in a Bubbles and Books subscription box and I’m using it for the “Fall Colored Cover” prompt for Readathin.

So far I’m liking it an okay amount. It’s more enjoyable than I thought but the main characters don’t make sense to me and this book suffers from the insta-love trope.

The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

Rob and I have been listening to this on audiobook for a while and we’re finally nearing the 90% benchmark! We should be finished with this either today or tomorrow.

This is a reread for me but I legit do not remember how much I liked it the first time around. So far it’s pretty good but the main character can be EXTREMELY foolish at times which can get annoying.

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I wasn’t sure if I should include this because Rob and I started this book as a buddy read months ago and we just never picked it back up. I’m using it for the “TBR Repeater” prompt on Readathin since I’ve been meaning to read it for a long time.

This book focuses on Ronan from The Raven Cycle and he was my FAVE so I’m hoping it goes well.

Recently Finished

In the past week I’ve finished the following books:

The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I really really wanted to like this book but I didn’t like the way it was written and I didn’t like either of the main characters. They would both randomly say a sentence out loud when they were alone and thinking and the love-interest was clearly written to be unrealistically good for the main character.

I should be writing posting a review for this within the next month.

It’s Raining Men by Rich Amooi

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I was part of a blog tour for this book so you can read my full review here!

This book was grounded in a weirdly sexist premise but it was a light and fun read. It also kind of suffers from insta-love trope but the whole plot is meant to be ridiculous so I didn’t mind.

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This book was basically the epitome of average for me. I thought it was fine and that’s basically as far as my feelings went. I don’t feel particularly happy having read it but I don’t regret reading it either.

The review for this should go up within the next month as well.

The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

This was another book that I really wanted to like but was disappointed with. I had so many high hopes.

Unfortunately the main character is a total dick and I don’t really know if he or the author realized how terrible he was. In fact most of the side characters were bad as well. It’s extremely hard for me to care about a book when I hate the protagonist.

A review should be up for this next month.

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

I read this book as part of a book club so you can expect my review to be posted as soon as our final discussion wraps up this Sunday!

I absolutely hated this book for over 50% of it and then the latter half was a lot better so I wasn’t sure how to rate it. I would have definitely DNFed it if it weren’t for this group read.

Reading Next

In order to blackout my Readathin board, I need to finish the following books before the 30th!

All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson

I’ve been wanting to read this for a while! I borrowed a copy from the library and it’s my next read after Tiger Eye.

The Cousins by Karen M. McManus

I’m doing a blog tour with this for The Write Reads so you can expect my review for this on the 27th! I’m SO EXCITED!!!

A Real Royal Christmess by Linda West

This is also a blog tour I’m doing with Rachel’s Random Resources and my review will be posted on the 29th! I love light Christmas reads so I’m looking forward to it!

Smash It by Francina Simone

I got this ARC for free from a user on Twitter who was giving it to an OwnVoices reader so I’m super excited to finally start it! I’ll be using it for the “Own Voices” prompt.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

This will probably be my last read of the month because I’m terrified of this book. I honestly probably wouldn’t have read it but Readathin has a prompt for “Book starting with ‘N'” and this is legit one of the only books I have that starts with that letter.

How did I do? Do you see any books you’ve read or want to read?

I’ll try to post another one of these next Wednesday! See you then!

    Love it! You did great and I am so looking forward to reading The Cousins. Also, the guy on the front of Tiger Eyes is the spitting image of a guy I used to watch on the soaps. I will have to investigate this further. ❤️
