WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Samanneelizabeth over at Taking on a World of Words. It’s all about books we are Currently Reading, Just Finished Reading and Reading Next.
IT’S BEEN A hectic few weeks for us. We’re lucky to have books, even more so during quarantine. Books are a great escape from reality, it has always been mine, especially when I’m feeling overwhelmed.
Needless to say, I did a fair bit of reading before bed last week.
I’m technically still reading The Bride Test. I’m sure once I get into it I’ll enjoy it. The problem is that I just don’t have the time to make the investment. And an investment it is, Kai has Asperger’s and his mom went to Vietnam to find him a bride. I’m insanely curious to see how this bought and paid for the bride wins the heart of a man who doesn’t think he has one. Having read Helen Hoang’s previous book, The Kiss Quotient, I know I’m going to enjoy this. I just don’t want to do it a disservice by half-paying attention.
Recently Finished Reading
I’ve been on a LOT of M/M Romance books lately. Spring Strings was a part of a Spring Fling short story give away from May 1-7, so I snagged a copy to read for later. When I saw the author’s name I knew I was going to read it. Lily Morton’s books are funny and entertaining and the men have an English accent (just imagining it is hot). They’re a quick read when you have a lot going on. Last summer, I went on a Lily Morton kick, they were light, easy and steamy.
Again she didn’t disappoint when I was looking for a little distraction. Review to come soon!
The purpose of My Book Jar is to motivate us to read the books on our TBR list. It’s definitely why we have this Reading Challenge.
So, I’m going to read Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park which has been on my list since December 27, 2013, *wince*
Not going to lie, I feel like I have outgrown YA novels. That’s one of the reasons for this book being on my TBR list for so long. However, Carmen and quite a few other adults love reading YA so I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone and give Eleanor & Park a chance and maybe not steer so clear of them in the future.
I’ll be reading Fyodor Dostoyevsky this week for my Literature of the Fantastic’s course.
So far I am reading and watching books and films that are classified as horror which is NOT my go-to but I don’t really have a choice now do I?
Eleanor & Park will be a welcome respite from the doozy I’m sure this will be.
