WWW Wednesday #26

Hello friends! I hope you are having a spectacular day! It is time for my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

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

I know I’ve not been super active lately, but I’m going to try and get back to proper blog hopping and interacting with all of you amazing bloggers and readers next week (hopefully…)! I also reached 1,000 comments which is an accomplishment as far as I’m concerned so YAY!!

Let’s get started!

All covers are from Goodreads

What I Just Finished:

I didn’t finish anything this past week. However, I reviewed The Bridge of Little Jeremy by Indrajit Garai on Monday! You can check out my review here. I also didn’t review Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland yesterday, but I’ll try to do that tomorrow!

I also DNF’d Captive Witness because I don’t want to ruin my happy memories of Nancy and I don’t have the patience or time to continue either. I was only 24 pages in and I was frustrated with the story-telling and the superhero moments so I’m definitely going to pass.

What I’m Currently Reading:

I am 132 pages in and so far I’m liking it. I’m curious about Stone’s past, and also intrigued by the story. No one seems to have the same theory that I have, which is frustrating, but hopefully, someone will eventually think of it! Or I’ll be proven wrong…

What I Plan To Read Next:

My library copy is ready, so up next, I’m reading The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton! By the way, is it me or does the book have two different titles?

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle? Are there two different titles for it? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

WWW Wednesday #25

Hello my fellow bookworms! I hope you are having a fantastic day! It is time for my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

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

Let’s get started!

All covers are from Goodreads

What I Just Finished:

I finished The Bridge of Little Jeremy last night. It was a an okay story with good characters, but I thought it was a bit too long. My review should be up, hopefully, sometime later this week!

I also finished Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland and really liked it! The mystery was intense, and the conspiracy plot a lot bigger than what it originally seemed. My review should be up next Monday! (07/22)

Finally, I also finished Look For Me by Lisa Gardner. I loved the characters, the mystery kept me guessing, and the ending was neatly wrapped up. My review should be up, hopefully, by next Friday! (07/26)

What I’m Currently Reading:

I haven’t actually started reading Hell’s Corner by David Baldacci yet, but I plan on doing so later today.

I’ve gotten through the first chapter of Captive Witness and it’s hilarious because Nancy and the story are kind of old fashioned. Hopefully, I will still enjoy the mystery!

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next up, I want to read Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco. Hopefully, I’ll have finished both of my current reads first, and caught up on my reviews before I start this!!

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read Hunting Prince Dracula? What did you think? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

WWW Wednesday #24

Hello!! How are you? I hope you are having a fantastic day! It is time for my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

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

Let’s get started!

All covers are from Goodreads

What I Just Finished:

My latest read was Trust Me, I’m Lying by Mary Elizabeth Summer. This was predictable and a bit implausible. I also didn’t like Julep so this was a 2.75 star. Review will be up next Monday.

What I’m Currently Reading:

I’m 36% into The Bridge of Little Jeremy, which I’m reading for review. I was given a copy of this by Estelle, a friend of the author. So far, it’s okay. I’m getting bored, and just want to skip to the end to find out what happens so I’ve decided to take a quick break from it.

My hold for Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland came in two days ago. The summary is interesting and I plan on starting it today.

What I Plan To Read Next:

I went to the library yesterday!! And I only got 3 books lol. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to the library and gotten real physical books so I’m kind of excited. I usually read e-books from the library.

I got Hell’s Corner by David Baldacci just because I had no idea what to get and I randomly pulled it off the shelf right before I left. Hopefully, I won’t be disappointed by this as I was with Long Road to Mercy.

I also randomly pulled Look For Me by Lisa Gardner off the shelf. It’s book 9 in the Detective D.D. Warren series, and I hope this can be read as a stand-alone.

Captive Witness by Carolyn Keene is the last book I got. I’m pretty sure I’ve read it, since I’ve read the ~30 other Nancy Drew books that my library has (and probably well over a 100 in my lifetime), but I snatched it anyway. I hope I still enjoy it!

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read any of the books I’m reading, just finished, or plan on reading soon? Do you know if Look For Me can be read as a standalone? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

I received a copy of The Bridge of Little Jeremy by Indrajit Garai for review, and I started it yesterday. I’m excited to read Mr. Garai’s new novel.

Tag Thursday – The Coffee Book Tag

Welcome back everyone to Tag Thursday. It’s been a while since I did this (2 weeks, yikes!) and I’m glad to be doing this again. Tag Thursday is where I scour the internet and all things bookish to find interesting ‘quizzes’ to answer so that you get to know more about me and my blog. However, today’s tag comes from the lovely Umairah @ Sereadipity (go check her out!) and is called The Coffee Book Tag. I am not a coffee drinker (the smell is is awful in my opinion) but I love the prompts, so let’s jump right in!

(1) Black Coffee | Name A Series That’s Tough To Get Into But Has Hardcore Fans:

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. First of all, it’s long. Second of all, it drags. Third of all, I hated it with all my guts. And it has lots of fans – I’m just not one of them.

(2) Peppermint Mocha | Name A Book That Gets More Popular During the Winter or A Festive Time of Year:

The Grift of the Magi by Ally Carter (I just realized that I’ve been spelling it wrong, LOL). It’s been a while since I’ve read this, but I remember it was about someone stealing from a charity, Christmas, and winter. A cozy heist with a family of characters that I’ve grown to love.

(3) Hot Chocolate | What Is Your Favorite Children’s Book?

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. Anne Shirley, can we please be bosom friends?

(4) Double Shot of Espresso | Name A Book That Kept You On the Edge Of Your Seat From Start to Finish:

The Hit (Will Robie #2) by David Baldacci. Will Robie is an assassin for the US and he’s new case is literally red hot. (Warning: There are deaths, and violence/guns are used a lot cause he’s an assassin)

(5) Starbucks | Name A Book You See Everywhere:

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo. It’s the newest and hottest release on Goodreads right now.

(6) The Hipster Coffee Shop | Give A Book By An Indie Author A Shout Out:

The Sacrifice by Indrajit Garai. A thought provoking collection of three short stories. REVIEW

(7) Oops! I Accidentally Ordered Decaf | Name A Book You Were Expecting More Of:

The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall. This was such a let-down. I was looking for a story with a terrible organization, an unexpected family history, and just lots of action, NOT a ‘heroine’ who runs off to Paris in the middle of the night with a guy who pulled a knife on her literally five minutes earlier without telling her mother or best friend or any soul in the whole universe. Then she gets to Paris and is like: Oh, maybe I should have told Mom. She’s gonna worry. Anyone got a phone?

(8) The Perfect Blend | Name A Book Or Series That Was Both Bitter And Sweet, But Ultimately Satisfying:

Rivals in the City by Y. S. Lee. This is the last book in The Agency Series and I loved it so much. It’s sweet because I’m satisfied with the way the series ended, but bitter because I can not get enough of Mary and James’ ridiculous banter.

(9) Green Tea | Name A Book Or Series That Is Quietly Beautiful:

Honestly, I don’t know. Suggestions are welcome!

(10) Chai Tea | Name a Book Or Place Series That Makes You Dream Of Far Off Places:

Any book that takes place in England awakens the travel bug in me. I really really really really want to visit England someday.

(11) Earl Grey | Name Your Favorite Classic:

Nancy Drew by Carolyn Keene. It is a classic, right?

That’s it! I’m Tagging:

Kay | Crystal | Ashley | Meeghan | Mel | Jess | Jo
