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.
- Jade City by Fonda Lee: I’m not too far into this book but it certainly starts off with a bang! I also kind of already love Hilo and this seems like a bad choice to make? I dunno, there’s something about that hot-headed idiot that entices. The entire Kaul family are an interesting bunch and I can’t wait to learn more about them. I’m loving the writing, as well! So… so far, so good.
- Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett: I’m finally continuing on reading the Discworld books! I’m glad that you can kind of pick these books up at your own place and easily fall back into the story. And I had forgotten how much I enjoy Sir Pratchett’s writing! I love the humor and the wit. The fact that this story centers around a girl who is determined to become the world’s first female wizard is certainly making this an interesting read. Esk is such a great character and I can’t wait to watch her kick the patriarchy’s butt.
- Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert: AHHH, THIS WAS SO GOOD!! Definitely my favorite of the Brown Sisters series! I love Eve with every fiber of my being. And Jacob? Jacob deserves every bit of love that Eve will surely lavish upon him. They are both incredible characters in their own rights but together? Together they made this book truly special. And steamy af 🥵 I adored this romance!
- Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley: I do love when I have two five star reads back to back! It took me awhile to read this one, but that was through no fault of its own. This book was absolutely stunning! I loved how immerse the reader becomes in Ojibwe culture, I loved Daunis and her scientific approach to her Secret Squirrel job, and I especially love that there was no neat bow put on this story at the end. It was messy and real and heartbreaking, yet still hopeful. I can see why so many people were talking about this book last year. It was incredible.
- Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid: This book surprised me in how much I enjoyed it! Which, looking back, I’m not 100% sure why 😂 I’ve loved every other book I’ve read by Taylor Jenkins Reid, after all. I think I always approach books about famous people, fictional or not, with a little trepidation. I don’t tend to enjoy them, but TJR has a way of writing rich people drama that is so compelling that I immediately get sucked into the story. Malibu Rising was no different and I’m so glad that I gave it a chance.
Ya know, I don’t have any books on the plate right now for when I finish what I’m currently reading. It’s almost the end of the month and I’m participating in two readathons next month! I need a little breather before I try to read ALL THE BOOKS next month 😂 Wish me luck!
