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-

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

33294200

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!

Just Finished-

Tin Man by Sarah Winman

36676536

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

13623848

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.

Reading Next

The Ensemble by Aja Gabel

The Ensemble

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!

  1. 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!)

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

      1. 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!

  4. 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). 😊

  5. 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.
