WWW Wednesday-September 15th

Ah, another week, another Wednesday.

That means it’s time for WWW Wednesday!

What is WWW Wednesday? Well, it’s a bookish meme that was previously hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and was revitalized by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

It asks the three W’s: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?

On to the answers!

What are you currently reading?

The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss

This particular book is a book club pick for my in person book club. I just started it the other day and am excited to really get into it. It has such a good premise. The daughters of Victorian monsters team up with Sherlock Holmes? Sounds amazing.

What did you recently finish reading?

The Hike by Drew Magary

So, I don’t know if it counts as finished, but I DNF’d this one. It was just a little too weird for me. And I really enjoyed The Postmortal by the author, so I had high hopes. This was a pick by my online book club, and yeah. The premise sounded good. A man goes on a hike, but if he strays from the path, he dies. Oh, and lots of weirdness happens. This book just wasn’t for me.

What book do you think you’ll read next?

Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn

I know what you’re thinking: “but Lauren, didn’t you already read this book this month?” Kinda? I haven’t finished it yet. I got about halfway through when I realized I had book club deadlines I had to reach, so I had to stop reading it. I’m hoping my ADHD rattled brain will allow me to pick this one back up instead of starting another book. We shall see.

And there it is! My WWW Wednesday for this week. Books are fun, aren’t they?

WWW Wednesday-September 8th!

Happiest Wednesday to you all! Are you having a good week so far? If you are in the US of A, did you have a relaxing Labor Day?

I did. I sat at home and read. Big, huge shocker. I know.

Anyhoo. It’s time for WWW Wednesday!

It’s that time of the week when we ask our selves three simple questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?

It’s hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words, but was originally hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm. We thank them for it, because it’s fun!

What are you currently reading?

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

I first started this book as an audio book some years ago. I am determined to finish it before the first season comes out in November. I am still listening to it as an audio book, but that’s while I work on my Animal Crossing island. I’m trying to finish that before October comes. Zeesh.

The Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn

I’ve been meaning to re-read this book for years, so I added it to my TBR for this month. It’s been fun getting to know all the characters again. Though I still have no idea how to pronounce any of their names. Part of the fun.

What did you recently finish reading?

Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune

I recently received the ARC of this from NetGalley and couldn’t have been more excited to get this one. I have a book review of it coming next week that I’m excited to share with all of you, so that will be fun! For me at least. I don’t know if you will find it fun. You know how I ramble when I get excited.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

I’ve been meaning to pick this series back up for a while, so I figured this month was the perfect month to do that. Here’s hoping I’m not wrong!

What does your WWW Wednesday look like? Comment below!

WWW Wednesday-September 1st!

And just like that it’s a whole new month! Welcome friends, to September!

Fall is almost here!

Although I did buy a fall candle on Monday, so does that mean it has already arrived in my house? Ooh, can I put out my pumpkins? Would my husband be a fan of Halloween in September?

I’m going to go with no on that last one. He always asks me to wait on the Halloween decorations.

But why wait, I ask you? Why wait?

Oh dear, I seem to have lost the plot, which is WWW Wednesday! It’s a bookish meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the three W’s: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

Heartless by Gail Carriger

I loved the last three books in this series and had purchased the whole run, but I hadn’t finished it. So I thought, well, why not work on that? So I am. Totally makes sense.

What did you recently finish reading?

Introducing Quantum Theory: A Graphic Guide to Science’s Most Puzzling Discovery by J.P. McEvoy, Oscar Zárate

This book took me two months to slough through, and I remember none of it. At all. Not one iota. You can ask me anything about quantum theory and my reply will be “whatever”. I’m more interested in cosmology or astrophysics. That holds my attention and I can retain that information. But, if you are into quantum theory and want to learn more, this book may be for you.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Timeless by Gail Carriger

I suppose I’ll try and finish the Parasol Protectorate series, now won’t I? This is the last book in the series, but thanks to The Storygraph, I have learned there are tiny little stories set in the world that I now have to track down and find. Bother.

The Hike by Drew Magary

This is the pick for the month of September for the Literarily Wasted book club. If you’re a Sci-fi/Fantasy fan, go join! You can find them on the Facebook in two places, the official page where they host the book club meetings twice a month for one hour each time (online!), or the lounge, which is for members to gather and talk. Each month they split the book in twain, you read up to a certain point and that’s the point the first discussion is up to when they do the live chat. At the end of the month they discuss they whole book. It’s a lot of fun.

So I’m a mood reader (What? No? You’ve never mentioned this before she say’s sarcastically) so who knows if those will actually be the two books I get to next, but we shall see!

WWW Wednesday-August 4th!

Well hello there!

Any excuse to use that gif, honestly.

It’s WWW Wednesday! This bookish meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. I had so much fun doing it last week that I thought I’d give it a try again this week.

All you have to do for this meme is answer three simple questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? And what do you think you’ll read next?

Onto the questions!

What are you currently reading?

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

I stated reading this one, like, today. As in, I got five pages into it when I remembered that I had this post to write up so I can tell you absolutely nothing about this book. Go me! I can tell you based on what I have read that I am excited to continue it.

Introducing Quantum Theory: A Graphic Guide by J.P McEvoy & Oscar Zarate

This is an informative read that I picked up on Kindle Unlimited a while back and actually just started getting into reading it. It’s very informative. And the illustrations range from actual art to copies of actual pictures from history. It’s pretty neat. Also, yes, I am that kind of nerd.

What did you recently finish reading?

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

The story of a boy who thinks he’s just a regular, if troubled, kid who finds out he’s a demigod and then has to go on a quest? Yes, I will read that. Except I didn’t like this book. I didn’t hate it either. It was just meh. I looked up some reviews online and found out the series does get better, but I don’t know, should I continue it?

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave

Do I know if I’ll actually read this book next? I have no idea. I’m a mood reader with a TBR. It doesn’t always work out. But this is one of my book club’s pick for August, so I do need to read it. Might as well be sooner rather than later, right?

And there we go, a nice new empire, I mean list of books for WWW Wednesday. What are you reading?

WWW Wednesday- July 28th

Well hello! Me, posting on a Wednesday? Whatever is happening?

I’ve seen this post going around the blog-o’sphere and thought I’d give it a try! WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words! It’s a pretty simple concept. Every week you answer three questions:

What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?

Now, I won’t do this every week, because I don’t read that many books in a month to make it worth doing. Also, I’m mood reader so I don’t always know what I’m reading next, but I know what I’m doing this week, so I figured, why not!

What are you currently reading?

Blameless by Gail Carriger. I’m loving this series. I read the first one for a virtual book club I’m in and I couldn’t put it down. It was described as Buffy meets Jane Austin and I would have to agree…although there is a little bit of spice thrown in there.

The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn by Tyler Whitesides is good, but it’s also a slow read for me. I started it while on my two week trip and am still working on it now.

Could i be reading two more different books?

What did you recently finish reading?

Changeless by Gail Carriger was great. I’m telling you, this series is fire, and it starts with Soulless, so pick that up! I’m moving through it at a fast clip and should be done with it before the month is out. I started reading it last week.

Psalm for the Wild Built by Becky Chambers was a great book. I would absolutely love to see more of this world and am hoping for exactly that. It’s very heartwarming and Mosscap made me smile.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Heartless by Gail Carriger. This one was easy. I’m very excited to finish this series. One book left after this one, and then there is a follow up series set in the same world. I love it when I find an author whose work just sucks me in.

That was fun! What do you think? Do you like seeing what people have read, are reading, and will be reading? Let me know!
