WWW Wednesday (August 23rd, 2017)

WWW Wednesday (1)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?

Currently Reading-


East of Eden by John Steinbeck– Steinbeck is my favourite author.  He wrote my favourite book of all time and I have enjoyed every book I have read of his. It is absolutely ridiculous that I have yet to read East of Eden- arguably his most beloved book! I only just started it but it so beautifully written! I know I am going to love it!

Just Finished-


Uprooted by Naomi Novik– I have such mixed feeling about this book! When I wrote my WWW Wednesday last week I was just starting to really enjoy it but then I started to struggle with it again.  I do not know what it was but I had a hard time connecting with the characters and the story.


Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy–  This was exactly what I need after finishing Uprooted! It was light, funny, and heartfelt! The romance was not my favourite but I enjoyed every other aspect of the story.  I can’t wait for the movie to be released!

Reading Next-


Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty–  I am not 100% sure this is what I will read next because who knows what kind of mood I will be in when I finished East of Eden!

Have you read any of these books? I would love to know your thoughts!! Happy reading everyone!

  1. I loved Truly Madly Guilty…and it’s been years since I read East of Eden…but I still remember loving it.

    I’m curious about Dumplin’. Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s MY WWW POST

  2. I keep saying I really must make more time to read some classics but those new releases are just too tempting.

    I’ve been a bit on the fence about whether to read Dumplin as the reviews seem decidedly mixed.

  3. I really liked Uprooted.

    Let’s see: Currently Reading – Kobold Guide to Plots and Campaigns edited by Michelle Carter
    Just Finished: Writing with Style: An Editor’s Advice for RPG Writers by Ray Vallese
    Reading Next: umm…maybe Warcross by Marie Lu or The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

      1. Thanks! It was one of the many ARCs I picked up at BookExpo. But with all the press lately around the movie for Ready Player One, I really want a book with similar vibes, and I’d like to have a Warcross review up prior to release day, so timing wise it really works out. 🙂

  4. I had to read Cannery Row for one of my American Literature courses, and I actually loved it. It’s the only Steinbeck novel I’ve read. It’s a bummer when you can’t connect to the characters. Makes it hard to enjoy. I hope you have better luck with Steinbeck and your next pick.
