Welcome back to another episode of WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words, which means I’ll be answering these questions:
- What did you read last?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you read next?
Despite still being sick and ordered on bed rest by the doctor, I haven’t been able to read very much since last Wednesday and only managed to finish three books (one e-ARC and blog tour book)!
The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead ★★★★★
This was a book I was expecting to be five stars and I’m so glad I was right. This was an incredible read. I hadn’t read anything by Colson Whitehead until this book but I’m very eager to read his previous and future books now. He writes so simply but with words that cause such a big impact. I found myself tearing up constantly while reading about the Nickel Boys and their mistreatment. I know that these things have happened in the past and in some countries still continue to happen, but gosh, my heart. It makes me feel so sick to think about what these children go through. It’s a tough and painful read, but so worth it! Review coming soon.
Let’s Get Textual (Texting #1) by Teagan Hunter ★★★★★
This was the much needed light read I needed after finishing my previous read. This was a fun, fast and absolutely hilarious romantic comedy with two loveable and nerdy MCs that I was constantly rooting for! Zach is now also my latest fictional man crush because yeah, who doesn’t love a hot nerd with fantastic nerd humor?! Check out my full review.
(e-ARC) The Queen’s Assassin (Queen’s Secret #1) by Melissa de la Cruz ★★★☆☆
I was lucky enough to be chosen as part of The Fantastic Flying Book Club (FFBC) blog tour for The Queen’s Assassin and it’s my first of quite a few that I’ll be joining this year! I just finished this book today with time to spare to prepare my blog post for Saturday–so be on the look out for that post coming up soon! 😉
I mean, technically The Most Fun We Ever Had is still on my current reads but as I mentioned before, I have a feeling it’ll be on there for a while? I just haven’t been in the mood to keep reading it and to be honest, I could push through the read but when it comes time to finally review it I will probably just draw blanks. SO… while I’m not giving up on this book (because I don’t feel like I really gave it that good of a chance) I will be putting it on hold for now! I have some more blog tour dates coming up so I’ll likely be reading Kingshold and Wicked As You Wish now!
I’ll once again be prioritising my blog tour reads for the coming months. I also need to be double-checking with my NetGalley ARCs and making sure that I’m reading them all in good time because we’re all about tackling that TBR this year, amirite?!
How is your reading week going and what are you currently reading?
