It’s been so freaking long since I’ve done a WWW Wednesday and I’m kind of glad I skipped so many weeks because April has proved to be a terrible reading month. I couldn’t finish anything for weeks but I finally have some books to update you all on!
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?
Among the Beasts & Briars by Ashley Poston
I’m super close to finishing this one so hopefully I can get it read today or tomorrow!
This is a buddy read with my crew from TWR as part of the “Hannah Didn’t Mean to Start a Book Club” Book Club. I’m enjoying this very much. It’s fast paced and is sure to keep you hooked as soon as you start!
Seeking Whom He May Devour by Fred Vargas
I’m buddy reading this with my partner, Rob, though he’s reading his copy in French.
What’s interesting is that we’ve compared our versions and the translator has changed some of the words that are actually in English in the French version to different English words which is really weird.
So far it’s unclear what is happening in the book, whether it’s supernatural or not. I’m curious to see what the plot has in store next!
In the past week I’ve finished:
The Order of the Key by Justine Manzano
I received a free copy from the author almost a year ago and this book got lost in the sea of my TBR.
Thankfully, I was participating in “Netgalley April” with a few of my bookish friends where we decided to spend April catching up on our backlog of requested reviews.
I’m so happy I got to this because it was a great YA fantasy novel. My review for it posted yesterday so you can read my full thoughts here.
Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli
I read this for a blog tour so you can read my full review here.
This book was absolutely lovely! I’ve read I think four of Becky Albertalli’s books and this was definitely my favorite of all of them. The plot centers around two best friends who have a crush on the same guy. And while I absolutely hate love triangles, this book handled it so well.
Janey Trelawney’s Year of Surprising Triumphs by Georgie Hill
This was a sweet story about a woman who is struggling to get by at work now that a new (and evil) manager has taken over. There’s also a nice side plot about her love life.
What I thought was the best thing about this story was the emphasis on working together to get something done. It was a very nice “found family” type of feeling.
This was for a blog tour, so you can read my full review here.
Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie
Poirot Investigates is a collection of 11 short stories about Hercule Poirot. I read the collection from a different book than the picture included here but because that book includes a bunch of other short stories, I decided to use this version when logging my Goodreads shelves.
Overall I thought the stories were very average. Since they’re so short, you can’t really connect with any of the characters so I didn’t feel any emotional reaction to the results of each crime.
I’m not sure what I have coming up next but I do have a few books that Rob still wants me to read and some requested reviews from authors so I’ll include some of them below!
Do you see any books you’ve read or want to read? Let me know in the comments!
