Well, I forgot to do this yesterday, I was traveling. So a day late but here’s my 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?
I just started Jade City by Fonda Lee. I took it on vacation and never picked it up. I’m only about 30 pages in an just wasn’t in the mood. I’m still deciding if I’m going to pause and pick this back up when I’m more in the mood or give it another go now. I definitely want to read it but it wasn’t working with my vacation brain.
The one thing I did make progress on was my reread of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It was great to read this on the plane when if I got distracted, it was totally fine. I definitely teared up on the plane but whatever, that scene gets me every time. I’m getting close to the end, I’ll probably pick this up one night soon and finish it off when I’m in the mood for some easy reading.
Nothing here. A weeklong vacation and very little reading happened.
Same as last week: I plan to pickup The Gaps by Leanne Hall next. I have the ARC for this one, it will be published February 8th. I’m looking forward to this one, it sounds intriguing and a bit of a change of pace for me. Here’s the blurb:
When sixteen-year-old Yin Mitchell is abducted, the news reverberates through the whole Year Ten class at Balmoral Ladies College. As the hours tick by, the girls know the chance of Yin being found alive is becoming smaller and smaller.
Police suspect the abduction is the work of a serial offender, with none in the community safe from suspicion. Everyone is affected by Yin’s disappearance—even scholarship student Chloe, who usually stays out of Balmoral drama, is drawn into the maelstrom. And when she begins to form an uneasy alliance with the queen of Year Ten, Natalia, things get even more complicated.
Looking over their shoulders at every turn, Chloe and Natalia must come together to cope with their fear and grief as best they can. A tribute to friendship in all its guises, The Gaps is a moving examination of vulnerability and strength, safety and danger, and the particular uncertainty of being a young woman in the world.
