Happy 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’m almost halfway through my ARC of The Rumor Game by Dhonielle Clayton and Sona Charaipotra. This is turning out to be a good YA contemporary. There’s a lot of multi-media elements to it that aren’t quite formatted right in the ARC so missing a bit there but a good story.
I started Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins to continue my reread of The Hunger Games series. I’ve only read a chapter or two but love having it there to pick up when my brain isn’t ready for new info but I want to read.
First, I finished my ARC of By Any Other Name by Lauren Kate. This was a cute contemporary romance except the characters drove me crazy in the very beginning. It ended up at 3 stars. You can read my full review here.
Then I had my first DNF of the year and first DNF on NetGalley with Tell Me and Ending by Jo Harkin. After reading over 50 pages of this very slowly, I needed to give up. I couldn’t make it through another almost 400 pages. This isn’t a bad book but it isn’t for me and I didn’t rate it. The story is told from multiple POVs in a kind of inner monologue-style that was driving me crazy. There were flash backs/memories that kept confusing me and some of which was dialogue with no quotation marks which I find very difficult to read. It just didn’t work for me at all. I’m disappointed, I was really excited about the premise of this one but I just couldn’t do it.
I have no idea what I’m going to read next. I’m on my last March 1st ARC so nothing left I need to read this month. I’m excited to jump into my March Trope-ical Readathon TBR but if I need a book to bridge the gap, I’ll just pick up whatever I’m in the mood for.
