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:

If you’d like to learn more about any of these books, click on the cover to be taken to the Goodreads page.
- Scorpica by G.R. Macallister: I was sent an e-ARC of this book through Netgalley because the publisher sent an email asking if I was interested and, after reading the synopsis, I couldn’t say no! It sounds epic in the best way, with lots of moving parts and intricate world-building. So far, it’s living up to what I was imagining. Of course, I’ve only just started it, so who knows if it’ll keep up, but right now, I’m really loving it! Let’s hope that continues.
- Dread Wood by Jennifer Killick: I’m reading this book for a blog tour sponsored by The Write Reads. It’s a middle grade that promises creepy vibes and, so far, it is delivering! I’m having a great time with this story and am fully invested in what happens to these kids. Also, love the fact that there are pigs, though I am a little worried for their well-being…
- Highway of Tears by Jessica McDiarmid: This was a very interesting read. I don’t know much about the plight Indigenous women (specifically in Canada for this particular book) go through and I want to learn more. This book did a great job of laying out some depressing information. It did skip around a lot, which led me to be a bit confused sometimes. There were so many cases brought up that I tended to get confused when it hopped from one to the other. Overall, though, this was a well-researched non-fiction that I think is a good start if you want to learn more about the overwhelming number of missing and murder Indigenous women.
- Witchlings by Claribel A. Ortega: I LOVED THIS BOOK! This is the witchy middle grade novel I didn’t know I needed. Now, I want more! This was just an absolute delight to read. From the wonderful world-building to the fast-paced plot, I found myself completely wrapped up in the story and could have stayed there for much longer. I’m glad this is part of a series because I already miss Seven, Thorn, and Valley! Who are incredible, by the way. If you’re looking for a fun, sometimes creepy, and certainly touching story about friendship and finding where you belong, I highly recommend this one!
- The Hill We Climb by Amanda Gorman: I’m participating in the Spring Equinox of the Magical Readathon next month and one of the prompts I need to complete for my calling is reading a book under 100 pages. As a reader who usually sticks to fantasy… I have very few books under 100 pages 😂 Then I remembered that I had the book form of the inaugural poem by Amanda Gorman on my 22 in 2022 TBR, so what better time than now to read it! I’m so excited to read this powerful poem.
- The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin: If you saw this on my readathon TBRs from last month… no you didn’t 😅 My reading mojo was in a weird place in March where my mood reader brain absolutely took over. This is why I very rarely do TBRs! Still, I’m putting this book on yet another readathon TBR and I am bound and determine to actually read it this time. Wish me luck, y’all!
