WWW Wednesday: Apr 6, 2022

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

  • Local Woman Missing by Mary Kubica: This will be my second read for the Magical Readathon and I’m glad I picked it as my quick read! I am flying through this thriller and having a great time while doing it. Do I sometimes want to shake some of the POV characters? Yes. Very much so. Kate. But the fact that I’m so invested tells me I’m really enjoying myself. I was thrown off by the use of the r-word near the beginning by a pretty terrible person. I get that this person is the type that would throw that slur around… but we couldn’t find something else to demonstrate they’re awful? In 2021? I dunno, I’m probably being overly sensitive. That aside, I’m having a great time with this read!

Recently Finished

Rating: 5 out of 5.
  • Dread Wood by Jennifer Killick: I’m not going to talk too much about this one because I have a blog tour post going up for it tomorrow. The Write Reads tour group has a way of picking middle grade novels that are just spectacular! This creepy middle grade horror was such a fun read. I mean… maybe not if you have arachnophobia, but I had a great time 😆 Check back tomorrow to hear my full thoughts!
  • The Hill We Climb by Amanda Gorman: This was my first read for the Magical Readathon. What a way to kick off the month! This was a truly magnificent poem, in both spoken and written form. I was a little worried it wouldn’t hit as hard when it was words on a page, but it was just as compelling and inspiring! I still prefer watching Amanda Gorman perform this poem, of course, it brings back a lot of great feelings. That being said, I loved reading it and it got an easy five stars.

What’s Next

  • May Day by Josie Jaffrey: I’m reading this book for an upcoming BBNYA finalist blog tour post. It won first prize last year, so I’m excited to get to it! I was wondering how I could fit it onto my Magical Readathon when I was lucky enough to claim a spot on a quest. The quest requires me to read a book with a building on the cover and this fits the bill perfectly! I’ve been promised murder and vampires and an overall good time, so I’m eager to dive in.
  • The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary: This is yet another one of my Magical Readathon reads and one I’m really looking forward to picking up. Every time I mention this book, someone tells me it’s one of their favorites, and that has me pumped to read it! It’s also due back to the library soon, so I gotta pick it up sooner rather than later 😂 Let’s see if this romance can help me determine what I like and don’t like in the genre.
