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:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- 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.
- Highway of Tears by Jessica McDiarmid: I’ve just started this non-fiction about missing and murdered Indigenous women, so I don’t have a true feeling for how I’m liking it. So far, I’m liking the tone of the story. It doesn’t read like a textbook, which is something I’m always worried about when going into a non-fiction book! As predicted, I’m already angry about the injustices that have been highlighted so far. Initial thoughts? I’m going to love this and also want to fight people after reading it.
- The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi: I have read a page of this so I truly have no thoughts yet. I’m picking it up for the various readathons I’m participating in this week/month! It’s been on my TBR for what feels like forever and I’m excited to finally give this heist story a shot!
- Tripping Arcadia by Kit Mayquist: This was my book for the morally grey prompt in the Trope-ical Readathon. I wasn’t sure if it would fit the prompt, but, having finished it, I can guarantee it 100% DOES! Morals were very loose in this story, let me tell ya. But that’s kind of why I loved it. It also had an interesting mystery at the heart of it and anything set in/near Boston instantly gets brownie points from me. I like knowing the various mentioned locations, haha. This was an intense, gothic read with a sapphic romance sprinkled in. I had a great time reading it!
- Dead Voices by Katherine Arden: This book was not on any of my March TBRs, but I picked it up to read for this week’s Orilium: Gear Up readathon. It was the perfect, short read to get my quarterstaff conduit! Also, it was a lot of freakin’ fun. I’m really enjoying Katherine Arden’s middle grade horror series because she is an expert when it comes to vibes. This one was perfectly wintery and, yes, creepy. There were moments that sent shivers down my spine! I kind of wanted to shake Ollie (how you gonna make the same mistake TWICE in under an hour, Ollie?!) but Coco really grew on me in this book. I can’t wait to continue this series.
- Witchlings by Claribel A. Ortega: I have so many books I need to get to, but their about to all be thrown to the wayside for this one, haha. I really want to read it before it’s released in April, so it’s bumped up the TBR pile! I also just really want to read this. It looks and sounds so good! Like it’s gonna have all the heartwarming, found family feels with plenty of whimsical elements that is like my favorite recipe for a middle grade. And there are witches!
- The Ivory Key by Akshaya Raman: This one is actually on my TBR! I’ve been super slacking with my Trope-ical Readathon reads, but I want to at least read the team book for Team Fantasy. It sounds like it’s going to be an immersive and fast-paced read, so hopefully I can speed right through it. I’ve also been hearing great things about it, so I’m really looking forward to picking it up.
