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-

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

I can not believe that I have never read A Wrinkle in Time! Now that it is being made in to a movie, of course I had to buy it! So excited that I am finally taking the time to read it!

Just Finished-

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

This book is as good as everyone says it is- better even! If it does not end up on my favourite books list at the end of the year I will be really surprised! I adore Eleanor and I wish she was real and we could be best friends!

I Am I Am I Am by Maggie O’Farrell

I Am I Am I Am was much more than I expected it to be! It is the story of the author’s life told through her near death experiences. It was beautiful, insightful, and had me tearing up by the end. Maggie O’Farrell is an interesting and incredible woman. I can not wait to read her fiction novels!

The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo

I just finished The Light We Lost and I am still trying to sort out how I felt about it. The writing was great, and I could not put it down but I had a few problems with it. I can not get in to a lot of my thoughts without spoiling the book so I will just say I felt the narrator was immature and selfish. This book takes place over a 13 year time period and there was absolutely no character development! I actually found it to be quite emotionally manipulative and it glorifies some things that I do not agree with. If you have read this I would love to know what you thought- I am still unsure!

Reading Next

The Queen of Hearts by Kimmery Martin

First of all, how gorgeous is this cover?! One of my goals of 2018 is to read more debut novels, so I am really happy that Penguin Random House Canada sent me a copy for review! It is a medical drama, which I love watching on TV but never actually read a book set in a hospital. I am so excited about it!

  1. Great post! I really, really need to read Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine! I have been hearing such good things about it, and I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it too 🙂

  2. I wasn’t crazy about The Light We Lost. I felt like Lucy was clinging to something that wasn’t there, and she took a lot for granted. I don’t think Gabe knew what he wanted, and his random poppings into her life were disruptive.

    1. I am so happy that you agreed with me! I have seen so many amazing reviews for it! I felt like Lucy was selfish and I hated how she was always comparing her husband to Gabe. Gabe only called her when he was upset! Not that kind of relationship that should be romanticized in my opinion!

  4. I read A Wrinkle in Time when I was a little older and never loved it so much for it to be my childhood favourite, but I did reread it recently and I cannot wait for the movie! Hope you enjoy the book, can’t wait for your thoughts on it 🙂
