WWW Wednesday: 14th November

WWW Wednesday: 14th November

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves answering three WWW questions about reading.

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading the same three books I have been for the last week. However, after Friday that is due to change seeing as I will (hopefully) have no more exams for the rest of the year. I really want to finish two of the three books I’m currently reading which are:

  1. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
  2. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I am definitely looking to finish Gentleman’s Guide over the weekend and hopefully I’ll make a good dent in Strange the Dreamer!

What did you recently finish reading?

Just like last week, I haven’t finished anything this week but I am really hoping to have two books in this section next week to make up for this week!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Well I definitely want to make a proper start on The Priory of the Orange Tree. It’s my aim to have that book finished by the end of the year so we shall see. I feel like it’s a book you can’t really take out the house because it’s honestly the size of a brick!

As well as reading that, I’d really like to start a book I took out the library which is The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. I’ve seen a hell of a lot about this book over the internet and it sounds like the perfect book to satisfy my murder mystery craving. I’m especially interested to see how I react to an adult murder mystery. As you all can see, I really love YA and rarely read adult fiction so this will be a change for me.

Let’s hope next week I have a proper update for you all on what I’m reading! Have a great reading week!

WWW Wednesday: 7th November

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves answering three WWW questions about reading.

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading the books I mentioned last week but I haven’t actually really even touched them this week. You know, exams and stuff…

Just in case you can’t remember what I was reading last week:

  1. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
  2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
  3. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

What did you recently finish reading?

I still haven’t finished anything this week, my bad.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I will definitely be plodding through my current reads still over the next week but hoping to have a more productive week after my exam which is in about a weeks time.

WWW Wednesday: 31st October

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves answering three WWW questions about reading.

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently making my way through a few different things having picked up another book that I don’t really have the time for but oh well. I usually pick up a load of books when I’m in a reading slump but that’s not really the case this time round. I mean, I am in a little reading slump but I’m picking up books left, right and centre because I really do want to read my books at the moment but I can’t because I have one more exam to do in November and so I’m putting all my efforts into that.

That being said, here are the books I am (slowly) reading:

  1. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee – Featured for the last few WWW Wednesday’s, I will get this off my list eventually. I’m actually really enjoying it and love Monty’s voice but basically, exams.
  2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor – I went to the Laini Taylor signing on Friday in Birmingham so knew that I had to get a wriggle on and at least start Strange before I went to the signing.
  3. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – I was supposed to be reading a chapter a day to get through this, but I read one chapter and haven’t read any since. Again, I have had exams and that has stopped me reading basically everything.

What did you recently finish reading?

Um, so I haven’t actually finished reading anything this week. Oops…

What do you think you’ll read next?

Right now, I’m just focussing on finishing the books I’m actually reading at the moment, except for Priory because I have already planned to read that over a longer period of time. I definitely will not be picking up any more books over the next week unless I’ve finished both Gentleman’s Guide and Strange the Dreamer.

WWW Wednesday: October 24th

WWW Wednesday: October 24th

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves answering three WWW questions about reading.

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue which I haven’t picked up for the last few weeks. I reached the 100 page mark just before I pressed pause on reading it so I’ve been wanting to pick it back up. Since I’ve read the two books I really wanted to get read this month, I finally can. I’m also reading The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon at the moment. I’m currently trying to stick to my plan of one chapter a day but that doesn’t quite seem to be happening…

What did you recently finish reading?

Since my last post, I finished The Witch of Willow Hall which I quite enjoyed (review up on Friday). I’m not really big on horror movies or anything of the horror genre so avoid anything scary at all times, but October is the one month where I’ll actually consider reading anything a little creepy or spooky. I thought that this book offered the right amount of spooky for me. It does feature ghosts which I’ll admit, they do freak me out a hell of a lot, but I was fine with this (or rather, I was fine when I was reading the book in daylight).

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m looking to read The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy but I also want to read The Sisters of the Winter Wood, Sawkill Girls andGirls of Paper and Fire. I definitely won’t be able to read all of those though because I have an exam the later half of this week!

WWW Wednesday: October 17th

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted Taking on a World of Words that I thought would be fun to get involved with. It involves answering three WWW questions about reading.

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox. I’m really enjoying it, more than I thought I would be actually so I am pleasantly surprised. I didn’t expect not to like it as I thought that it sounded like an interesting historical but spooky read and I was definitely right.

I’m just over 200 pages through it so I’m hoping to finish it within the next week but we’ll see as I do have an exam coming up next week!

What did you recently finish reading?

I recently finished What If It’s Us? by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. I’d been reading it very slowly for almost a month but then ended up staying up till 1am on a work night to finish it. I really enjoyed it and would fully recommend it!

What do you think you’ll read next?

I started The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee last month but then started What If It’s Us? as I had an ARC of it that I needed to read. I’m about 100 pages through Gentleman’s Guide so I’d really like to pick that one up so that I can then read The Lady’s Guide to Piracy and Petticoats.

So that’s my first WWW Wednesday for you. A little bit late, but here nonetheless. I’m glad that I found this challenge as I really want to become more consistent with my blogging again, especially after my exams are out of the way as they’ve really been holding me back from reading and blogging for the last year!
