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?
Circe by Madeline Miller
I am not very far in to Circe but I can already tell that it is going to be a favourite! Retellings can be hit or miss for me and it is always really exciting when I find one that I connect with. I adore Circe as a character and I can not wait to see where her story goes. I have a feeling I am going to want to read The Song of Achilles as soon as I am done with this one!
Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel
I am so sad that my favourite series as come to an end, but oh boy what an ending! This book was pretty much perfection! I really loved what Neuvel did with the story and how this last book had a little more political intrigue and commentary on what is going on in the world today. There were a lot of moral and ethical questions throughout the entire series, but even more so in this book! Sylvain Neuvel is a genius! He came up with his own alien language for this book! If you are a fan of Illuminae, then I think you will adore this series. It is also SciFi and told through interviews and log files. I can not say enough good things about it- just brilliant!
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
After reading Only Human, I was in the mood for more SciFi so I finally picked up Dark Matter. This is a book that I have been meaning to read for ages and I am glad that I did. The story is so unique that I could not even begin to explain it to you! This is definitely a book where it is best to go in to it knowing very little about it. There was some science lingo that went over might head but I do not think that matter too much. It is definitely a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and you’ll be thinking about even when you’re not reading it!
I am not sure what I will be in the mood for after I read Circe! I think I am going to do the Try a Chapter Tag next week so I will be reading whichever one of those books stands out the most to me. Keep an eye out for that!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

happy to hear you’re enjoying circe! i can’t wait to read it. hopefully i’ll find some time to read it this month, if not then next month. glad to hear that you enjoyed dark matter! i loved that book so much.
Circe is really great! Dark Matter was so addicting! I could not put it down!
I have been seeing Circe everywhere, and while it is not typically the type of book I read, it sounds so fun and interesting that I might have to pick it up! Everyone seems to love it! I read Dark Matter last year and loved it!
Here is my WWW: https://musingsofabookishnerd.com/2018/05/09/www-wednesday-9/
I am not usually drawn to retellings or Greek Mythology but this book is excellent so far! Dark Matter blew my mind!
I loved Dark Matter, as well. I definitely agree it’s best to go in cold, because that twist basically blew my mind!
My mind was blown the entire time! Crouch is a genius!
I’m so glad you’re liking Circe! It’s a favorite of mine now too. Dark Matter was awesome as well! I still need to read Sleeping Giants though.
Yay that is good to know! You definitely need to read Sleeping Giants!
So happy to hear you’re enjoying Circe, this will be my next read. I am gently kicking myself for not starting my copy of Sleeping Giants which I’ve had sitting on my shelves for over a year *shameful head drop* I’ve heard so many amazing things but the invention of a alien language in this book seriously takes the cake! as a lover of all things sci-fi, adding to my summer tbr 🙂
Happy Reading! <3 <3 <3
Thank you! I think you are going to love Sleeping Giants. It is brilliant!
I hope so, I think I will too though 💜 thank you! 😄

It is great so far! Thank you!
i’ve heard amaaaazing things about Circe! hope you continue to enjoy it! & i read Dark Matter last month on a whim knowing very little about it and enjoyed it so much.
Thank you! I think manner people would love Dark Matter! It is such an adventure!
Circe is at the top of my TBR list as I have heard great things about it. I’m so happy you love it too, another reason for me to read it. I’m the same with retelling, it could be a real disappointment or an utter joy.
Happy reading. 😊
Thank you! I am definitely nervous when I go in to retellings because there are so few that I enjoy! I am so happy that I am loving Circe!
Dark Matter looks really interesting!
It is an adventure that is for sure!
So good to hear you enjoyed Only Human. I just finished the second book and really enjoyed it so I’m happy to hear it wraps up just as strong! I hope you continue to enjoy Circe- one of my favorites of the year so far!
I think you will be very happy with Only Human!! I can definitely see why everyone has been loving Circe!
I hadn’t heard of Circe or Madeline Miller’s books before. I’ll need to check it out. Circe is one of my favorite mythological “villains”!
Ah then this book is perfect for you!!
I’ve been dying to read Circe, I can’t wait to read your review of it!
It is amazing! Hopefully I will have a review posted soon!
I’m so glad you’re enjoying Circe!
I am loving it! Taking my time with it because I don’t want it to end!
Ah that makes it sound even more awesome!!
