#WWWWednesday: 02 October

It’s time for another WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words, which means I’ll be answering these questions:

  1. What did you read last?
  2. What are you currently reading?
  3. What will you read next?

What did you read last?

๐ŸŽ‰I FINALLY FINISHED PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE LAST WEEK! ๐ŸŽ‰

Excuse the all caps because I was SO excited that I managed to finish that hunk of a tome before the end of September. I was so certain that I’d be reading it straight through to October. I still haven’t written my review for it because I’m still not really sure how I feel about it. I enjoyed reading it and when I had it in my hands I would be speeding(ish) through the pages; but when I put it down I didn’t feel compelled to pick it back up again. I knew that I couldn’t have set it down to just read any other book too as I’d probably never come back to it ๐Ÿ˜‚But I still enjoyed it. I think? Anyway, my review will hopefully be coming soon! I binged The Perfect Moment (review coming soon) and Two Weeks Notice (my review for Two Weeks Notice). on Friday night/Saturday morning (yes, both in one night lol) because my soul was craving something super light and fluffy after Priory, and I had no regrets staying up all night reading!

What are you currently reading?

I was feeling restless not knowing what I wanted to read after binging on two contemporary romances after finishing Priory last week, but I ended up choosing The Bookish Life of Nina Hill on a whim the other day and I’ve been speeding through it! The style is not at all what I expected and I wasn’t sure how I felt about Nina at the start, but the style and characters have grown on me. There’s a lot of quirkiness going on in this book and I’m actually really here for it! I’ve laughed aloud countless times since I started and it’s giving me some lightness that I need right now.

What will you read next?

Okay y’all, I have TONS of books outside of my ‘possibility pile’ that I need to get to this October before even turning to look at the ones I want to read! These definitely fall in the ‘must read’ category because they’re eARCs. I’m gonna give priority to several eARCs that are well overdue (I’m sorry pls don’t judge me) and ones whose pub dates are very quickly approaching! I’m actually pretty annoyed at myself for thinking the Shadow Frost pub date was later this month when it was actually yesterday! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธEpic fail, Dini! I’ve had this e-ARC for a while so I’m annoyed at my ability to push things off until they’re overdue. Someone tell me, why isn’t this a skill we actually need in life?! Lol

What are you currently reading? How’s your week going?
Leave me a comment and let’s chat ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh, I know! I’ve heard SO MANY good things about that book. I think it was last week when everyone on my instagram was basically posting 4-5 star reviews about it! I definitely should get to it sooner rather than later ๐Ÿ˜…

  2. Ooh I know the feeling about ARCs piling up… I had that recently and have only just got it back under control. Until I logged in today and saw SO MANY good ones I couldn’t resist requesting. It’s a never ending cycle haha

    1. Hahaha it really is a never ending cycle! I think I haven’t logged on recently out of guilt and coz I know there are some deadlines coming up and I want to get them read as soon as possible so I can stop feeling the pressure ๐Ÿ˜‚I guess it’s lucky that I can’t actually request a lot because of my location, so there are limits to what I usually get (compared to others)!

    1. I agree I wouldn’t put it in the ‘never’ pile because it is an interesting journey, but I also just felt so much of it could’ve been cut down and it wouldn’t have lost quality either? It wasn’t a bad story and the characters weren’t bad either, there was just A LOT in there ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. Well, I got an eARC for it, and the terrible person that I am I still haven’t read it yet and I’m truly a horrible person! ๐Ÿ™ˆIt was one of the first eARCs that I got on Netgalley actually! I was very surprised! I’ve heard quite some mixed reviews about it that has me hesitating but let’s see how it goes! Hope you enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Haha thanks! It was one helluva journey that I was certain at times would never end ๐Ÿ˜‚
      I’m really glad to know I’m not the only one with ARC pile ups. It doesn’t make me feel any less guilty but it does make me feel a bit better knowing I’m not alone in them heh

      1. Oh hell no! Show me a blogger that hasn’t gone through then and I will show you a blogger without an ability to access to Netgalley and Edelweiss (that is a very real and unfortunate reality).
