WWW Wednesday – May 26, 2021

Hey everyone! I’m back again this week for another WWW Wednesday. I skipped last week because I didn’t have anything to update, but I finished a few books since then! 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 two weeks and still haven’t made any progress on it since then. I was buddy reading this with my partner, Rob, and he finished it weeks ago OOPS.

Hopefully I can get to it now that I’ve finished some of the other books I was reading.

City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

I’m reading this for Middle Grade Marvels and missed the last two updates because I literally kept forgetting to read it.

I read the first 1/4 of the book and really enjoyed it so I have high hopes!

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 haven’t listened to any of it in over a week so again you can expect this to remain on my WWW Wednesdays for a while.

In the past week I’ve finished:

The Five by Hallie Rubenhold

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I read this with my TWR crew as part of the Hannah Didn’t Mean to Start a Book Club book club.

I think Hallie Rubehold did a really nice thing here trying to give the lives back to the women whom Jack the Ripper killed. We often forget about them and focus instead of the murderer rather than the people whose lives he ended.

Unfortunately, since society is terrible, a lot of this book had to result to being hypothetical since we don’t actually know much about these women. It got a bit frustrating seeing how much of this non-fiction book was guesswork (which again is not the fault of the author).

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.

A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Hallie Rubenhold

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

This cover is super freaking cute, so I was very excited to read this book. I received a physical copy from Unplugged Book Box, but I ended up listening to the audiobook on Scribd instead so I could do work at the same time.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of the main character and I was disappointed that she didn’t go through the growth that I wanted to see in her.

Reading Next

There are a few books left on my May TBR, and I’m definitely not going to get to all of them in time, but I’ll list them here anyways.

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