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?
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
I am about 200 pages in to the Scythe and I am absolutely loving this book so far! It is a book that has my mind reeling and I keep asking myself whether or not this is a world I would want to live in. I can not wait to see what happens in the end, and I will need to get my hands on the sequel ASAP!
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
I am listening to My Lady Jane on audiobook, and even though I am not too far in to it, I think I am really going to enjoy this one! The narrator is amazing and really adds to the humour. I am happy that I will have the sequel, My Plain Jane, to read when I am done with this one!
A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
This book has become one of my all time favourites! I loved absolutely everything about it! What I appreciated the most is the fact that Becky Chambers recognizes the fact that other species in the universe who are not from earth would have different traditions and behaviors. The world that she manages to great is exceptional and one that I can not wait to return to.
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
The Kiss Quotient was so cute!! My cheeks hurt when I was reading this book because I was smiling so much. I absolutely loved these two characters and seeing them navigate their complicated relationship. I will say that it is a big sexier than I was expecting so do not make the same mistake I did and read it in public!!
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
I am sad to say that I didn’t enjoy Little Fires Everywhere as much as was hoping I would. I felt the same way about Celeste Ng’s other book so there must just be something about her writing style that does not mesh with me. I think part of the problem is that I do not connect with her characters. I never find myself truly caring what happens to them, and being that there are so many characters in this book and they are driving the story, that is definitely a problem. I did think it picked up in the second half and I loved getting more background information about some of the characters. I just wish there was a bigger focus on the adults as opposed to the teenagers! I am still glad that I read it and think it will translate well in to a TV series.
The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
I have been seeing The Poppy War everywhere lately and it sounds amazing! I can not wait to read it. I have been making an effort to read some bigger books lately and this is one that I am really excited about.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

Great selection of books! Scythe is my next book I pick up.. 💗
It’s so great. I highly recommend it so far!
Oooo…Scythe and The Poppy War look really good!!!
Scythe is amazing so far and I have heard nothing but great things about The Poppy War!!😀
I keep hearing such great things about Scythe and have even owned it ever since it was released. I probably should really pick it up soon! The Poppy War has been on my radar for awhile as well. I’ve only heard amazing things about it! I hope you enjoy it!
You really should. I am absolutely loving Scythe and it’s a quick read! Thank you. I am so looking forward to The Poppy War!
I need to get my hands on Scythe already! Everyone seems to love it. I’ve had My Lady Jane since release day and still have not read it. Hopefully I’ll finally get around to it ASAP. I need to pick up my copy of The Kiss Quotient too. Everyone is raving about it and I am so stoked to read it. The Poppy War sounds so interesting. I was stoked that I got it on e-book sale last month.
Yes you do! Scythe really lives up to the hype! I am also really enjoying My Lady Jane so far. I hope we both love The Poppy War!!
Ohh I love the poppy war.. Enjoy 😀
Yay! I am really excited about it!
I’m only a few chapters in lot the poppy war but so far it’s really interesting 😊
Thats great to hear!
I have Scythe and I really want to read it. I was trying to hold off closer to the third book release but I don’t know if I can wait. haha. The Poppy War is good!! Hope you enjoy it.
I should probably have waited for the third book too! It’s such a great book and I know I will just want to know what happens! That is great to hear!
Haha, it’s so hard to not read books that everyone is talking about!
I am so happy that you enjoyed The Kiss Quotient!!! Cute indeed 😉
It really was adorable!
Is the Poppy War a tome, I’ve been trying to get into longer books, as well.
It is! It’s 549 pages! I have been trying to do that as well and The Poppy War looks like a good one!
Yeah, I recently read The Time Traveler’s Wife and that’s over 500 pages too
I read Becky Chambers’ recent third Wayfarers book and loved it, but I haven’t checked out the previous two yet and I really should. And whoo for The Poppy War! I hope you enjoy it!
I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the third book! I am so excited about Poppy War! Starting it today!
Nice! I enjoyed My Lady Jane too, and I have Scythe and Kiss Quotient on my TBR; that latter one I’m particularly excited to read as I’ve heard it’s one of the most healthy and fun romances out there. 😉 Great post!
Thank you! I definitely agree with that for The Kiss Quotient! There were no moments that made me feel uncomfortable or I felt the male protagonist was too possessive, which is something that I find a lot in romance!
