#Blogmas Day 23: WWW Wednesday – December 23, 2020

Round five of WWW Wednesday and Day 16 of Blogmas! For my last WWW Wednesday post, click here. For more information about Blogmas, you can read my introduction post.

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?

If you’re interested in information about the trigger/content warnings, tropes, and representation found in any of the following books, you can search them on BookTriggerWarnings.com

Currently Reading

I am happy(ish) to announce that the only books I am currently reading are two from my last two WWW Wednesday books:

  • Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  • The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

I haven’t made any progress on them this month, but now that I’ve caught up on my other reading, I should be able to finish them within the next week!

Recently Finished

Amari and the Night Brothers by B. B. Alston

Purchase on Amazon (affiliate link)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I read this for a blog tour for The Write Reads and I really enjoyed it! I’m not much of a Middle Grade reader so I can’t really say how well it fits into that age category, but I think readers of all ages will find enjoyment in Amari and the Night Brothers.

You can read my full review here.

The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton

Purchase on Amazon (affiliate link)

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This was another wonderful book club read with my crew at The Write Reads! We don’t have a book club name yet but I’m referring to it as the “Hannah Didn’t Know She Started a Book Club” Book Club for now.

This was a book that took a while for me to get into because I don’t care for historical novels, but once the action started going, I really enjoyed it! Though I was upset with the ending, I was still satisfied by it–if that makes any sense.

All Systems Red by Martha Wells

Purchase on Amazon (affiliate link)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I just finished this one earlier this evening. I didn’t know what to expect, but I guess it was better than I thought it would be? This is one of the books on my TBR that my partner, Rob, chose for me to read and it’s a novella so it was pretty quick. I was surprised (and impressed) by how much happened in such a short amount of pages. I think I’ll definitely pick up the next book in the series at some point.

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Purchase on Amazon (affiliate link)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was another book chosen by Rob and he chose it because it was a 5-star book for him and one of his all time favorites. Although I didn’t like it as much as he did, I still thought it was a really good book! It is just over 800 pages so it’s a bunch of a chonker, but I didn’t feel bored at any point. I read it in 50-150 page chunks so that might have helped a bit.

Reading Next

There are two more books that I want to have finished before the new year!

  • One of Us is Next by Karen M. McManus
  • The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the Train is a book for another book club I’m part of (The Backlist Readers Book Club) and One of Us is Next is the last book that Rob chose for my December TBR. I’m trying to read these as fast as I can, but with Christmas coming up, I also want to be able to take some time to rest. Can I do both? Who knows! Wish me luck!

    Some great books on this list, Jenny! I loved Amari, and The Devil and the Dark Water is brilliantly written – glad you enjoyed. I hope you like your upcoming reads – I read One of Us Is Next recently and didn’t like it as much as the first one.
