WWW Wednesday: Feb 26, 2020

It’s time for another WWW Wednesday! This is a bookish meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words where bloggers answer the 3 Ws:

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

If you’d like to learn more about any of these books, click on the cover to be taken to the Goodreads page.

Current Reads

The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu: I won an ARC of this from BookishFirst after reading an excerpt. I’m enjoying the rest of the book as much as I enjoyed that small taste! This is the story of a young woman named Nannerl Mozart and her soon to be well known brother, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Both Nannerl and Wolfgang are musically talented, but she is still a young girl in eighteenth century Europe. She makes a wish to not be forgotten, a wish that is heard by a faerie princeling in a magical kingdom. This is part historical fiction, part fairytale and I’m absolutely loving it!

Recently Finished

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia: Ya’ll, I looooooved this dark, weird, funky book! It centers around a treasure hunt that is heavily influenced by the works of Edgar Allan Poe. It’s an amazing ride and I’m so glad I stumbled upon the synopsis on Goodreads. You can read my full review here.

What’s Next

The Last Human by Zack Jordan: My other March ARC that I want to read before it’s release date. This is a sci-fi that I talked about on my last WWW Wednesday and I’m excited to read it! Probably won’t be finishing it before the end of this month, but I’ll definitely have it done before the release date on March 24th.

The Deep by Rivers Solomon: I’ve been meaning to read this for MONTHS! It’s so short, I really have no excuse for why I’ve put this off for so long. So I’m picking it up next! No excuses!

So what are you reading this week? Did you do a WWW Wednesday post? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!


Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Would Follow On Social Media

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish back in June 2010. It is currently hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and, as is stated on the blog, it was “born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”

It’s time for another TTT and I’m loving the theme for this week! Dive into your imagination and think of the top ten characters you would like to follow on social media. Just thinking of my faves having a Twitter or an Insta makes me wistful because it’s not gonna happen but I WANT IT TO!

*cough* Anyways. To the list!

#1. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series

Can you imagine Hermione with a Twitter account? In a world where there is a magic-compatible Twitter? Calling out everyone’s bullsh*t and just generally being awesome.

#2. Zachary Ezra Rawlins from The Starless Sea

I bet Zachary would have an amazing book blog. He seems like the type that would be able to wax poetic about books that he loves. And Mirabel could help with the aesthetic! I would read it.

#3. Tuesday Mooney from Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts

If Tuesday decided to have a social media presence, I feel like she would have a super weird and Gothic Instagram that I would drool over. Or just a weird blog that features interesting obituaries. I’d be all over it!

#4. Olive Torres from The Unhoneymooners

Olive’s humor is my humor, so I’m sure I would be trying to stifle laughter at work as I casually scrolled through her Twitter. Her sarcasm is on point and Twitter is basically built on sarcasm, so I’m sure she would thrive.

#5. Gideon Nav from Gideon the Ninth

Gideon is hilarious. This is just facts. And her dark humor would fit so well onto Twitter! I would follow her to get a good chuckle throughout the day. Also, maybe she would post random sword-fighting videos! Ugh, I would die.

#6. Jack Wolcott from the Wayward Children series

I’m having difficulty deciding what type of social media Jack would go for. Probably a blog about the science of reanimation or some such thing. Perhaps a Pinterest with just a bunch of macabre pins. Whatever form her social media presence would take I would jump all over. She’s just so intensely interesting and I want to know more!

#7. January Scaller from The Ten Thousand Doors of January

I don’t know why, but I feel like January would have a beautiful Instagram. Especially if she’s travelling around between multiple doors and taking photos along the way. Can you imagine how amazing that would be?! Instant follow.

#8. Jess Brightwell from The Great Library series

I bet Jess would have a killer book blog. The man is obsessed with book! And he’s clever and funny, so I’m sure he’d have rather engaging posts. His love of books would shine on his blog. I can’t imagine not being drawn to that!

#9. Fie from The Merciful Crow

I just want to see Fie destroy anyone and everyone on a large, social platform. Probs Twitter. She is short and to the point, so Twitter would be perfect for her. And her dry wit would fit in so well. She would be a complete troll to all the privileged asses and I am here for it.

#10. Maia Tamarin from Spin the Dawn

Maia would have THE most amazing Instagram (and probably Etsy shop)! I want to see pictures of all the beautiful clothing that she sews. I mean, I have a visual in my head, but I want to actually see them. I would scroll through her Insta all the time and dream of being able to afford her clothing.

Are there any characters you would love to follow on social media? Did you do your own Top Ten Tuesday? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!
