I meant to post this a lot earlier, but I was at school all day and then had some trouble with my blog, so a late night Wednesday post is what you get! Today, I’m doing my very first WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer these three questions (that all cleverly start with “W”):
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
So here’s a snapshot from my current reading life!
I got an eARC of The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding from Netgalley a few months ago, and am now racing to finish it before the archive date! I just started it this morning, and already LOVE it! I’ve missed the middle grade genre, with its sarcastic opening lines and adorable characters. Prosper’s family is definitely on the wacky side and I can’t wait to read the rest of his story! Hopefully since it’s a MG it won’t take me long.
These are the two most recent books I’ve finished. A Thousand Splendid Suns was actually my summer reading assignment, though I didn’t hate it like I usually do required reading! It’s a ridiculously sad and stressful book, but the writing is both beautiful and simple to understand – a rarity in books I read for school. It’s also a very important story, about two women struggling through the political turmoil of late-20th century Afghanistan. Then last night I just finished an ARC of Girls Made of Snow and Glass. Unfortunately, this book had an amazing premise but poor execution. The story was really slow, and overall kind of dull. It’s also the first book I read for #ARCAugust (let’s pretend that the month isn’t already half over okay?).
I’ll be continuing to power through my list of Netgalley eARCs with these two! They both release in September, so I really have to get to these. But Moxie is probably one of my top anticipated releases of the year, I have a feeling I’ll just fly through it since the story is so kickass. Invictus is another anticipated release, anything with time travel and heist gangs tend to be right up my alley!
