WWW Wednesdays: November 6

WWW Wednesdays

WWW WEDNESDAYS… is a weekly event where you share (1) What you’re currently reading, (2) What you recently finished reading, and (3) What you think you’ll read next.

I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday because I’m ready for the weekend! Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to post a quick update by participating in WWW Wednesdays.

Truly

Yesterday, I finished reading Truly by Ruthie Knox, a contemporary romance novel that was made available in serial form. It’s one of my favorite romance reads this year and the whole book is now up on Wattpad if any of you would like to check it out. Before that, I finished read the two volumes of the Saga graphic novel series by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples that are currently out. Another really good read! Hopefully I can review them soon.

The Scarlet Pimpernel

I’m in the middle of The Scarlet Pimpernel on my Kindle. This title has been recommended several times for fans of Megan Whalen Turner’s writing and I decided to bump it up since I’m curious about a retelling of it (Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund). I also started Fire and Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones, which was supposed to be my Halloween read but I haven’t been able to get back to it.

The Boneshaker

I’m planning to start on The Boneshaker by Kate Milford because the YAckers will be discussing it this month. A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I wanted to read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak before the movie comes out and I still haven’t done that. Although I haven’t seen an announcement on when the movie will be released in Singapore.

What about the rest of you, what book have you just finished, what are you reading and what are you going to read next?

WWW Wednesdays: October 2

WWW Wednesdays

WWW WEDNESDAYS… is a weekly event where you share (1) What you’re currently reading, (2) What you recently finished reading, and (3) What you think you’ll read next.

It’s Wednesday, middle of the week! The weekend is just around the corner. While I don’t participate in WWW Wednesdays every week, I still think it’s fun to do from time to time. This way, I get to talk about books that I might not get a chance to review later on.

My Most Excellent Year outdoors

Last book I finished: My Most Excellent Year by Steve Kluger, which I wrote a Retro Friday review for. It’s an under-the-radar contemporary YA novel that I think more readers should check out. It was such a fun and heartwarming read for me.

The Dream Thieves in Times

Currently reading: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, the sequel to The Raven Boys. I enjoyed reading The Raven Boys but my favorite Maggie Stiefvater novel is still The Scorpio Races. However, several book blogger friends have been raving about The Dream Thieves so I have high hopes for this one. I’m halfway through and I’m enjoying it but still waiting to be wowed.

The Chocolate Heart galley

Planning to read next: I requested and got approved for The Chocolate Heart by Laura Florand on NetGalley, the fifth book in the Amour et Chocolat series. I’m so excited to read this because the release date isn’t until November 26 but the galley is already available. I love the Amour et Chocolat series and it’s nice to have a new Laura Florand title in my Kindle.

What about the rest of you, care to answer the three questions thrown out by this meme? What book are you currently reading, what have you just finished and what are you thinking of picking up next?

WWW Wednesdays: September 11

WWW Wednesdays

WWW WEDNESDAYS… is a weekly event where you share (1) What you’re currently reading, (2) What you recently finished reading, and (3) What you think you’ll read next.

I’ve seen WWW Wednesdays around the blogosphere but this is the first time that I’m participating. You know when you feel like publishing a post on the blog but don’t have the energy to write a review? I think memes like WWW Wednesdays are a good idea for times like these.

Butterfly SwordsWhat you’re currently reading: I’m currently in the middle of Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin, a Chinese historical romance. I’m enjoying it so far and I find it interesting because this is the first time I’ve read an Asian historical romance.

Blue Sword

What you recently finished reading: I just finished rereading one of my favorite novels, The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley. It’s this month’s pick for our book club discussion. It was just as lovely as I remember it and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of rereading it. I need more books like that in my life.

Eleanor and Park US

What you think you’ll read next: I haven’t read any contemporary novels, both adult and YA, in a while so I’m thinking I can read either Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell or Paper Chains by Nicola Moriarty next. Or any other contemporary book in my TBR pile.

What about the rest of you, care to answer the three questions above?
