#WWWWednesday: 08 April

Hello, hello and 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:

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

My big question to you is: WHAT ARE BOOKS?! Because I certainly haven’t been reading them πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ Since last Wednesday I’ve only managed to finish one book and that was a graphic novel for the blog tour I was part of today!

Gotham High by Melissa de la Cruz, illustrated by Thomas Pitilli β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½
I read this one for the FFBC tour and my stop was today! I haven’t read a DC comic before but I have seen seen pretty much all of the movies, so I really enjoyed this graphic novel! I love seeing known characters as their younger selves because I love knowing their origin story and how they end up where they do. The story/writing wasn’t anything ‘wow’ but it was so enjoyable spotting characters and I loved how the characters were diversified–Bruce Wayne is half-Chinese! Check out my full review.

I’ve got three priority books to read right now. One is an eARC and two are blog tour reads for this Saturday and next Thursday! I’m so behind on eARCs *welp!* but I’m trying to not be too harsh on myself on that front because it’s only going to make myself feel worse! I’m about 11% through Ruthless Gods right now and I’m not hating it but I’m not falling head over heels for it either. I’ve been whining to Sammie about my frustrations with not understanding what the hell is going on (I’m sorry, Sammie LOL) but her responses and encouragement are making me enjoy this read more than I expected! πŸ˜‚

I’ve also started They Went Left and it’s an interesting premise but I’m not sure how I feel about this writing style. I understand that the author is trying to convey the mental confusion and instability of the character post-war but it’s making it difficult for me to connect with her. It’s still early days in the book though so let’s see how I feel as it progresses! I’m also planning to start Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits for next week’s blog tour with Algonquin. This isn’t an ARC but it is to hype the author as she has another book coming out soon!

I have so many freaking blog tour reads that are top priority but also ALL THE ARCs!

I have to say I’m disappointed that I’m behind on my ARCs (again) because I started off the year so well!

How is your reading week going and what are you currently reading?

    1. I know, the title is great isn’t it? Totally caught my eye the first time I heard it! They’re short stories though, which is always a bit half-half for me, but I’m looking forward to reading it πŸ˜€

    1. I felt so accomplished finishing my blog tour read and post for Gotham High yesterday πŸ˜‚ My goodness, I’m so not reading these days but I’m hoping to make more progress soon! Gotham High was fun for sure. I love graphic novels ❀ Which one have you read?

  2. β€œWhat are books”….. oh Dini you kill me! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’–πŸ’–
    I think that blog tour pressure is one of the reasons why I’ve only ever participated in one. I find my NetGalley ARCs are more than enough for me to keep tabs on. I also put a big fat notice on my contact page on my blog that I’m not accepting direct book review requests at the minute (I mean not that some authors pay attention to that notice and they still try to get me to read and review their books πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„) but I think with the pandemic I have to keep things simple. I hope that you’ll find your reading groove again soon Dini…or you know, maybe keep enjoying your animal cross thingy. Whatever it is YOU DO YOU DINI πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’–

    1. Ooh, that’s a good idea. I think I’m going to do that somewhere on my blog (now might be the time to finish writing my review policy huh? 🀣) and probably putting that on my Twitter too! I really need to scale ARC mountain before it gets even crazier! Keeping things simple during this period is definitely the way to go, Emer! Totally agree with you. Thanks friend ❀ ❀ ❀ Giant panda hugs to you from my animal crossing island 🀣 Haha

  3. My goal was to not ask for ANY ARC’S this year. I asked for one and got denied. HAHA! It’s been soo hard but kind of nice because I’ve made such a dent in my own physical TBR! Good luck this week! πŸ™‚

    1. NetGalley is honestly so dangerous. I tell myself that I won’t request anymore until I can scale a little of ARC Mountain but whenever I leave a review (or let’s face it, whenever I get bored and feel like browsing the interwebs), I find myself scrolling and requesting before I can even think NO, STAHP! πŸ˜‚ Making a dent in the physical TBR is also total goals! Happy reading πŸ™‚

      1. Yeah, that’s exactly what I normally do too! It’s taking all my willpower to not look!! I also just got declined for one… so that usually keeps me off for a while. Haha!!
