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 Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
I am currently listening to The Poet X on audiobook, and I am really enjoying it. I highly recommend listening to the audiobook because it is read by the author and you can hear her passion for the story. She brings the characters alive because she herself created them. I am not too far in to it but I already love Xiomara, and the book is pretty short so I am trying to savour it.
She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb
I am so close to finishing She’s Come Undone and it has been a difficult read but I think I like it?!? Dolores, the main character, is one of the most unlikable characters that I have ever read about but I can understand a lot of her actions and sympathize with her. I want to scream at her a lot of the time, but the fact that I am so passionate about the story is a good thing. I have no idea how her story is going to end and I am actually a little nervous about it!
Tin Man by Sarah Winman
Tin Man has officially become one of my favourite books of the year. It is quietly beautiful! It is a book that has weighed heavy on me and I have feeling I will continue to think about often. I appreciated the fact that it is a story about an almost-romance because I know it is something a lot of us have experience but is not something I have read a lot about.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
I knew as soon as I finished Circe that I needed to read A Song of Achilles ASAP! I am not sure which of the two books that I loved more! Madeline Miller is a master with words and I was completely captivated by The Song of Achilles. Even though I knew how the story was going to end, I was still not prepared for it. I think that is a credit to her writing and how she made me invested in these mythological characters.
The Ensemble by Aja Gabel
I received The Ensemble in my first Page Habit box and I wanted to start reading it right away. How stunning is this cover? I also love books with a focus on music and they are so hard to find. I am looking forward to reading about this group of friends who form a musical quartet and all the drama that ensues!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

I’ve heard such great things about Circe and Song of Achilles! I need to read these ASAP.
They are both amazing!!
I agree with you on Circe and The Song of Achilles! They were both amazing and I can’t decide which is my favorite! (TSoA definitely made me cry waaaay harder though!)
Oh yes TSoA is much more heartbreaking but I loved Circe as a character!
Song of Achilles has been sitting on my Kindle for a while. I’ve heard such good things about Madeline Miller, but I just haven’t had the time to get to it yet.
That is the story of my life. So many books I want to read and it’s impossible to fit them all in!
I’ve heard so many great things about Song of Achilles! Also, I’ve been wanting to read The Poet X since it was released. I’m glad you’re enjoying it. 🙂
I highly recommend The Song of Achilles! I just finished The Poet X and thought it was pretty amazing. A short but powerful story!
I’m so glad to hear you loved them both! I need to get to them very soon!! 🙂
I love the Poet X. Glad to see you’re reading it.
I’m currently reading The Arrangement by Sarah Dunn and Love & Luck by Jenna Welch
I finished reading Lies My Girlfriend Told Me by Julie Anne Peters
After I finish reading those two books, I’ll move on to The Girls in the Garden.
I just finished The Poet X and loved it. I have had my eye on The Arrangement! I hope you are enjoying it! Sounds like a great at lineup of books.
Oh, those look good! I just finished reading We Were Liars, and all I can say is…WOW. Have you read it?
I haven’t read it! I was spoiled for the ending so I am not sure if it is worth reading now? What do you think?
I did not get the ending spoiled, and it was such a shocking plot twist for me! I would still read it even if I’d known the ending, but I think the experience won’t quite be the same. It’s still a really good book though!
Yay I’m so glad you enjoyed song of achilles- I loved that book!
It was so good!!
Some great books! I really want to read both Circe and Song of Achilles. I’ve heard so many great things about them and I’m so happy you enjoyed them! 😊
I’m currently listening to ‘So you have been publicly shamed’ by John Ronston. It’s sooooo fascinating… and seriously disturbing. I’m loving it and recommend it as an audiobook (narrates by author himself). 😊
I think you will love both Circe and Song of Achilles! I have been trying to find a copy of SO You Have Been Publicly Shamed!! It sounds so interesting!
Damn The Song of Achille seems so good!
It really is!
I have wanted to read The Poet X for ages, I will definitely have to check it out.
It’s amazing!! I highly recommend the audiobook!
Hopefully one of my digital libraries will get it soon.
So many books I want to read on your list this week. Like you as soon as I finished Circe I knew I had to get my hands on Song of Achilles. I just need to find the time to read it.
I’ve also been tempted by Poet X (listening to it sounds ideal) and Tin Man.
It was so fun to read A Song of Achilles soon after Circe! I have completely fallen in love with Greek Mythology. The Poet X is truly an amazing audiobook and Tin Man is a must read in my opinion!
The book narrated by the author? That’s amazing! I don’t think i have seen this before😂.
Happy reading ♥️
It’s the first time I listened to a book narrated by the author and it was awesome! Thank you!
I’ve been hearing such great things about the poet x! Glad you’re enjoying ❤️
Thank you! I finished it and it was really great!
Getting in to Poet X soon!
I think you’ll love it!
