WWW Wednesday – May 12, 2021

Hey everyone! I’m back again this week for another WWW Wednesday. If you missed my last update, click here.

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

Seeking Whom He May Devour by Fred Vargas

I featured this last week and unfortunately did not get any progress on it since then. I honestly keep forgetting that I’m currently reading it 😂😂😂

City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

I’m reading this for Middle Grade Marvels so I’m around 1/4 of the way through it for our first check in.

This is my first Schwab book and I’m enjoying it a lot!! I’ve got high hopes (cue that song by Panic! at the Disco).

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Rob and I are listening to this together so we haven’t made much progress since both of us have to be in the mood to listen to it. We made a bit of progress since my last check in but we’re still less than 1/4 of the way through lol.

You can expect this to show up on the next few WWW Wednesday posts.

Recently Finished

In the past week I’ve finished:

Things to Do Before the End of the World by Emily Barr

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I read this for a book tour with The Write Reads and really enjoyed it!

It’s a story that takes place at the end of the world, but the real focus is on the main character, Libby, taking this opportunity to finally break from her shell. The first half was a bit slow but it really picked up after that!

You can read my full review here.

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I listened to this on audiobook and it was fabulous. I highly recommend listening to it rather than reading it because the narrator really brought these ridiculous characters to life.

The story is told non-chronologically through a bunch of intertwining narratives that connect at several places in time. It was an absolutely wild ride.

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I started this as a book club read a few months ago and then switched from reading the physical book to listening to the audiobook instead.

I have no idea how Julian is supposed to be pronounced because the audibook narrator pronounced it one way and Aiden Thomas at the end of the book pronounced it another. Regardless, Julian was my absolute fave.

Dismal Dreams by Red Lagoe

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I got this as an ARC from the author so thank you so much Red Lagoe for sending this to me!

It’s a horror anthology of 13 different short stories. I rated them all individually and should have a post about it up soon, but overall I think 4 stars is right.

A lot of the stories aren’t actually “horror” in the sense that I was expecting (I always default to ghosts idk why). Many were about the horrors of human nature rather than anything supernatural. Still, it’s sure to get your pulse going!

Reading Next

I read one of the books I listed on the last WWW Wednesday, so I’ll shift them over and add A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow to this list. It’s on Scribd so I should be able to get through it via audiobook!

Do you see any books you’ve read or want to read? Let me know in the comments!

    So many good books here! Glad you liked Things to do at the end of the world! I really want to get to Shadow and Bone and City of Ghosts. I read The Archived by Schwab years ago and loved the style!
