WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Uprooted by Naomi Novik- To be honest I was struggling to connect to the characters and the story for the first 100 pages but then something changed for me and I am really enjoying it immensely!
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah- This book has been on my TBR for a long time now and I am so glad that I finally got around to reading it! I really did enjoy the story and the characters, however, I have read a lot of WWII novels and this one just did not live up to some of my favourites. I will post a review soon!
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy- It is being made in to a movie so obviously I have to read the book first! It sounds cute and hilarious so I am really looking forward to it.
Have you read any of these books? I would love to know your thoughts!! Happy reading everyone!

I loved Uprooted! There aren’t enough stand alone fantasy novels out there.
That is so true!
haven’t read any of those, but i heard great things about “uprooted” and “dumplin'” 🤗
I am really excited to read Dumplin’!
i hope you’ll write a review 🤗
I read Dumplin’ last summer and LOVED it!! I hope you’ll like it too 🙂 Uprooted and The Nightingale are both books I want to read at some point. I just need to find the time to do it!
Glad to see you’re enjoying Uprooted. I’ve been going back and forth for like a year now on if I want to read it or not, lol. I LOVE DUMPLIN’ SO MUCH! I’m pretty sure I read it in a day, it was so good and hard to put down. I am impatiently waiting for the sequel, which doesn’t come out until next year ahhh!
Uprooted has gotten really good!!
I’m so even more excited about Dumplin’ now!!
I loved The Nightingale…and I’m curious about Dumplin’. Thanks for sharing…and here’s MY WWW POST
I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on The Nightingale. My book club just read it, and it got mixed reviews.
I have sort of mixed feelings about it! Definitely going to try and gather my thoughts and write a review! What did you think?
What is Dumplin about? I like the cover and it gives me some idea – but probably the wrong one…
I will post the synopsis for you so you get an idea!
Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked…until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.
Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.
Yayyy I’m glad you’re enjoying Uprooted!! <3 And Dumplin' is such a cute read, I can't wait to see what you think of it! 🙂
Yay that is good to hear!!
I loved Uprooted, it’s one of my favorite fantasy books of the year! However, I didn’t enjoy Dumplin’ at all and I had a lot of problems with it. I hooe you enjoy it, though.
I have seen mixed opinions of Uprooted and Dumplin’. I’ll definitely have to write reviews when I am done!
All of these are on my TBR list! Hoping to get round to them one day! Enjoy.
That’s awesome! I’ll definitely check out your post!
I’m Polish so I wanted to read Uprooted for the longest time but also my mother’s name is Agnieszka & it just………. seems to weird to have a character share her name lmao idk if I can do this.
Haha that would be a little weird! You would just have to name her character something else in your mind 😝
I must try that! I don’t wanna miss out on like the only fantasy novel w polish setting just bc of this??? In any case! I’m really glad tho that the names the author chose are actually, you know, common & used everyday here.
I loved Uprooted! I’m glad you’re enjoying it.
I really liked Dumplin’! It’s such a fun book. I hope you enjoy it!!
I’ve heard such great things about all of these! I’ve been wanting to read The Nightingale for a long time, mostly because the title intrigues me, haha xD.
This is such a fun meme! I’ll have to try it sometime.
It is fun! I love know what everyone is reading!
The Nightingale was good! Interesting story! 😊
Oh Dumplin is really good!! I’m really excited it’s being made into a movie too, because I think it’ll be really perfect with all the fashion pageants at the end as a film. Like Miss Congeniality!😂
Yay that’s good to hear! Can’t wait to read it and for the movie!!! 😀
