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 still reading Circe! I have not picked it up in a few days, and that is not because I wasn’t enjoying it (I am loving it!), but I felt a reading slump coming on and decided to take a break from reading physical books. I think the break was helpful and I am excited to pick this book up again. I have seen so many amazing reviews for it this week!
I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh
I borrowed the audiobook of I Let You Go from my library and I am not too far in to it. I have heard amazing things about this book and am excited to dive in to it. I have never listened to a thriller/mystery on audio before and I think it will be a fun experience!
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
I listened to the audiobook of The Belles and I enjoyed it. It wasn’t anything groundbreaking or original but it was fun to listen to. The world building was pretty good, and the magic was interesting but I was not a huge fan of the main character. I wish she had a little more depth! I will probably continue on with the series because I need to see what happens next!
Saga Volume One & Two byBrian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
I have officially read my first graphic novel and I loved it! So many people have said that if you are in a reading slump to pick up a graphic novel and that really worked for me. Saga was definitely not at all what I was expecting! It was so weird but so good! I can not even begin to describe it to you. It is definitely not for everyone! It is graphic but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One by Amanda Lovelace
I was really trying everything to not fall in to a slump so I decided to pick up my first poetry collection! I saw this on Hoopla so decided to give it a try. I thought it was powerful and I really liked what she had to say. There were a couple of points where I thought went a bit too far but I understand that these poems comes from a place of anger and being fed up! I will have to try her first collection soon!
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Since I started this blog almost a year ago, I have been talking about wanting to read The Giver! It is a book that so many people have read and the reviews seemed to be very mixed. I saw it was available as an audiobook so I finally decided to just give it a try, and I am happy that I did! I really loved it and thought it was an interesting story. I wish I read it when I was younger! Is the rest of the series worth reading?
I am posting my Try a Chapter Tag tomorrow! So I will talk about the physical book that I will be reading after Circe in that post!
Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil Degrasse Tyson
I am hoping to listen to this audiobook once I am finished I Let You Go! It is a quick audiobook and narrated by Neil Degrasse Tyson himself. I am not very science minded but I am obviously curious about the universe! I am hoping this book ‘dumbs’ it down for me in a way I will connect with.
As you can see it has been a really interesting week of reading for me! I have only listened to two audiobooks before this, yet I listened to two of them this week! Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
