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?
The Subtle Art of Not Giving of F*ck by Mark Manson– I like to end the year with a non fiction book that focuses on self improvement. This book is not like anything that I have ever read but I am intrigued by its message! I have only read the first chapter and I am not sure what I think yet. If anyone has read this I would love to know what you thought.
Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton– Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars? Yes please! I have not read a lot of this one yet but I am in the mood for evil ballerinas!
My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins– There were some stories that I absolutely loved, and some that I could not even finish, but I think that is the beauty of anthologies. I also discovered a couple new authors which is awesome! I am hoping to post a full review soon!
The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock– The writing is beautiful, the characters are vivid, and the story comes together magically. It is evident that the author lives in Alaska and understands the lives of the people that live there.
Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks– Well Christmas is next week and this book is the only book that I asked for! I have a good feeling that I will find it under the tree and will dive right in to it.
I would love to know what you are reading! I hope everyone has an amazing holiday!

I’m reading Furyborn by Claire Legrand (ARC) and I so love it!
Ahh that’s is exciting. I have that one on my tbr!
I’ve been so tempted to read The Subtle Art. As a worrier it’s certainly something I need to learn 🙂 I’d never heard of Tiny Pretty Things but I’ve just put it on my Amazon wish list, you’ve sold it with the Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars. I can’t believe I’ve never come across it before.
My True Love Gave to Me is a great anthology, yes some of the stories aren’t brilliant but some of them are. It did absolutely killed my TBR though as I added so many books by the authors to my list. Have you read the other one Summer Days, Summer Nights?
Tiny Pretty Things is so fun. It’s definitely a guilty pleasure! I can not put it down!
I have no read Summer Days but I am planning to next summer. Have you read it?
I have and it’s just as good. It also has the sequel to Stephanie Perkins story. Worth reading for that and a Bardugo.
Oh awesome! Stephanie Perkins story was my favourite so I am excited to hear she wrote a part two!
I loved the subtle art! I thought my True Love gave to me was a cute anthology I love throwing a few anthologies into my TBR every year to break things up ☺
Oh good I am glad you enjoyed The Subtle Art! I am starting to really appreciate anthologies!
I am getting ready to start reading Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. I was feeling like I wanted a sort of holiday themed book and I rather like reading fantasy this time of year, so a Discworld novel seemed like the perfect blend of the two.
I am ashamed to admit I have never read anything by Terry Pratchett! I really want to!
Nothing to be ashamed about. I haven’t read much Pratchett myself, but a friend was getting rid of a lot of her books and she offered her 24 Pratchett novels to me and I honestly couldn’t say no to that deal.
I love how unique your book selections are 😊 I’ve heard of Mark Manson’s book, but I haven’t felt the inclination to pick it up yet. I would definitely be interested in reading about your thoughts on it, though, if you choose to write a review! And *gasp* the cover of The Smell of Other People’s Houses is gorgeous!!! I’m in a book club that focuses on reading books about unique places around the world… do you think The Smell of Other People’s Houses would be a good pick for a book about Alaska? I enjoyed reading your post! 😋
I will definitely post a review for The Subtle Art! I think The Smell of Other People’s Houses would be perfect. It’s beautifully written, it is short but there would be a lot of good discussion!
