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 Greatest Love Story Ever Told By Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman
I am currently reading physical copy of this book and I am enjoying it so much that I am also considering listening to the audiobook when I am finished! I adore these two as comedians and as a couple and their banter puts a smile on my face. It is a really refreshing book and I highly recommend it if you need something to pull you out of a bad mood!
Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett
I have an eARC of Serious Moonlight and I am about 30% in to it! It seems to be taking me forever! The story is cute, but not much is happening. I think 432 pages is a bit too long for a YA contemporary romance. I have been wanting to read Jenn Bennett for ages so I am definitely going to keep going with it to see if I start to connect to it more!
Love Her Wild by Atticus
I thought there was some really moving and romantic poems in this collection, but then there were others that I did not connect with or thought had some problems. There was one particular poem- about how brushing a girl’s hair behind her ear will solve more problems than therapists and drugs- that how found to be questionable. That is where they lost me!
Heavy: An American Memoir by Kiese Laymon
Heavy was my first memoir of the year, and what a way to start! Kiese Laymon holds nothing back and bares his soul in this memoir that is essentially a letter to his mother. He shares what it is like growing up overweight, black, and in a violent household. This is a difficult book to review because, as a white woman, it was not written for me, but it should be read by people like me. I will just leave it at that.
Bitter Orange by Clare Fuller
Clare Fuller is quickly becoming my favourite author. I have now rated both of her books five stars on Goodreads. Her books are so atmospheric and descriptive that you have this feeling of heaviness the entire time you are reading them. Bitter Orange is very much character driven and there is an air of mystery throughout. There was actually a few twists that I did not see coming, even though all the signs were there. I thought it was brilliant, even though I know it won’t be for everyone.
The Feather Thief by Kirk Wallace Johnson
I am not currently listening to an audiobook, so I think I am going to start The Feather Thief. I am participating in the Book Riot challenge and one of the prompts is nonviolent true crime. The Feather Thief comes highly recommended! It is about a man who steals birds from The British Museum of Natural History in order to sell their feathers for fly-fishing? Sounds like an interesting story!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

I have Serious Moonlight on my Netgalley shelf! I didn’t realize it’s so long, but, it still sounds interesting!
It is cute! I am hopeful that I will get more in to it as it goes on!
Sorry to hear about Serious Moonlight. I’ve been looking forward to it, because I really like Jenn Bennett’s books. Hopefully it starts to get better!
We are just starting to really get in to the mystery element so there is potential for it to get really good!
I’ve heard good things about The Feather Thief. Enjoy!
I am very much looking forward to it!
All are new to me 😐
It is an odd mix of books!
I have not read any of these books, and none of them are on my TBR. The majority of Morgan Matson’s books are 400+ pages.
I haven’t read any of her books, but I have heard good things about them! My problem with Serious Moonlight so far is that it just seems to be a lot of filler. It is cute though!
Yeah, too much filler is not good.
Hope ye enjoy the feather thief. I very much did. I never knew that I wanted to know so much about feathers, fishing lures, and such. The thief certainly is a jerk. I hope ye review it after yer done.

It sounds very interesting. I will most definitely post a review!
I am so particular about the memoirs I read, it’s not my favorite genre. But when I do read them I do audiobooks. I LOVE Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally! I knew they had a new book coming out but for some reason I just missed the release entirely, so I’ve added this to my TBR!
I think you’ll love their book. Their personalities really shine through! I love their relationship!
The Feather Thief looks awesome, and I’ll be interested on your final thoughts for the Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman book, and the Jenn Bennett one too!
I finished The Greatest Love Story Ever Told and loved it! They have such great banter! I will definitely be posting a full review for it, and the other two books as well!
YAY! Looking forward to it!
I can’t wait to read The Greatest Love Story Ever Told. It’s definitely on my non-fiction TBR for 2019. 🙂
I finished it and it was adorable and hilarious! I think you will enjoy it. Such a feel good book!
I’m looking forward to reading Serious Moonlight. I’ve enjoyed Jenn Bennett’s YA contemporaries.
I have Alex, Approximately! I hoping to get to it this year!
I enjoyed Alex, Approximately. Hopefully you do as well.
I have heard good things!
