WWW Wednesday – September 1, 2021

Happy WWW Wednesday! If you’re unfamiliar with WWW Wednesday, it’s a weekly blog meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s are simple:

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

Current Reads

I finished two books yesterday so I actually don’t have any current reads.

I haven’t read any more of The Mask of Mirrors by M.A. Carrick but still have it on pause.

Recently Finished

I finished 4 books in the last week to finish off August and the Trope-ical Readathon.

First I finished All the Ever Afters by Danielle Teller. This was an interesting Cinderella retelling that follows the story of Cinderella’s stepmother. I gave it 3.5 stars. You can see my full review here.

Then I finished up the last Harry Potter book. I reread this series every couple of years, it’s such a comfort and I love it. I don’t support the author in any way and only read the books I already own but it’s part of my childhood and I know I’ll be back reading them again soon.

Then I finished the audiobook of The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. Oh boy, I didn’t like this. It was a predictable sappy, cheesy teen romance awkwardly interspersed with life lessons and motivational stories. It didn’t work for me at all, I don’t understand the hype. I gave it 2 stars.

Lastly, I finished Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B. Alston last night. I loved this new middle grade fantasy and will be posting a full review soon.

Up Next

I’m planning to read a couple or ARCs next. I think I’ll start Where the Stars Sing by Aminah Fox tonight. I’m a little scared because the Goodreads rating is really low but it’s only based on a few reviews so trying to go in with an open mind. I’m also planning to start Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim as my next audiobook.

  1. Happy Thursday! 🤗 Congratulations on finishing four books last week! You read a few of my favorite books this week.

    I love rereading the Harry Potter books every few years since they’re a comfort read for me too and loves The Sun Is Also A Star. However, I’ve been trying to read Yoon’s newest book, Instructions For Dancing isn’t working for me for the very reasons you mentioned disliking The Sun Is Also A Star.

    School started last week and I’ve been struggling to finish reading any books. I talk about it more in my newest WWW Wednesday post:

    I hope you have a wonderful week!
