WWW Wednesday: October 17, 2018

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words! All you have to do is answer the following three questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?


What are you currently reading?

thewitchofwillowhall

I know I have been “reading” The Witch of Willow Hall for the past several weeks. I am legitimately going to try to get this read this week. We’ll see how that goes 😂

bookishboyfriends

I am excited to finish up Bookish Boyfriends: A Date With Darcy this week! I got to see Tiffany Schmidt and get her to sign my book this weekend at the Southern Festival of Books (go check out my post about the festival here!), and it just made me more excited to finish it.

thebelles

I’m listening to The Belles on audio right now. I had it on hold at the library, and it finally became available. I’m enjoying it so far!

What did you recently finish reading?

practicalmagic

I have been hearing so many people talk about how much they love Practical Magic lately, and I figured that it was a great time to finally read it, seeing as Halloween is in a few weeks. I listened to it on audio, and I really did enjoy it. I happened to see the movie first, so I was definitely comparing the characters to the movie actresses, and I felt like the casting was done very well. It was very fun to get to dive into the story more in depth and get more of the creepy details. Overall, I enjoyed the book and would certainly recommend it to people like me who don’t like scary things, but want to read something to get them in the spooky, Halloween-y mood. (4 Stars)

ashprincess

Ash Princess was a really fun read for me. I don’t read just a ton of YA fantasy, so I had been putting this off for a while, but I’m glad that I finally picked it up! I really enjoyed the world building. Also, even though most of the book takes place within the castle walls, I really enjoyed the setting. I always find it impressive when someone is confined to such a small area and can still make the story interesting. I really liked Theo, but I hope that we get a lot more of her personality in the next book. I was racing to the end to see what was going to happen, which is always a good sign for me! (5 Stars) 

edinburghtwilight

I decided to pick up Edinburgh Twilight because I could get it on audio on Kindle Unlimited, and I love Edinburgh. Win, win! I’m not generally a big mystery reader, but I did find the story interesting. The setting, obviously, made the book for me. I was able to say, “Ooh, I’ve been there!” a lot! I was highly bothered by the fact that it felt like every time I liked a character, oops, they’re going to be the next one to die. So, that is the main reason that I gave this a lower star rating. (3 Stars)

What do you think you’ll read next?

cityofghosts

I saw Victoria Schwab talking about City of Ghosts at the Southern Festival of books this weekend, and now I am super jazzed to read it!

lolita

Lolita is our book club pick for October, so I’m going to start on the audiobook for this soon (read by Jeremy Irons, which makes me way more excited for this than I was initially haha)


Have you read any of these books? What are your thoughts on them? What are you currently reading? Let me know down in the comments!

Love and happy reading,

Author:

Hello!! My name is Whitney, and I love books! I spend a huge amount of time reading (way more time than I should, if we are being perfectly honest!) I live in Nashville with my husband and my two dogs, who are a total mess and generally are my reading buddies. I will probably share them with you, too. I also love to sing, play guitar, hike, play The Sims, watch tons of YouTube videos, and drink creamy tea and coffee.

  1. Lolita is such an uncomfortable book to read. I read it about ten years ago and there are scenes that have stuck with me to this day that still make me cringe when I think about the book. I don’t regret reading it but have no desire to go back to it again. lol.
    I read Rust and Stardust earlier this year, which is based on the real kidnapping case which is thought to have inspired Lolita, and it was incredible. If you haven’t read it, I really recommend it. Beautifully written and imbued with respect for the victim; it portrayed the helplessness and emotional state of the little girl without ever going into graphic detail about the actual acts of abuse she suffered.

    1. Yeah, I’ve never really been interested in reading it. I’m going to listen to it on audio because I have traditionally had more luck getting through difficult books in that format. Rust and Stardust definitely sounds interesting though. Thanks for the recommendation!
