Happy Hump Day, readers! We’ve reached the middle of another week which makes it time to catch up with what’s being read! WWW Wednesday is a weekly reading update hosted by Taking on a World of Words

The Three Ws are:

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

What are you currently reading?

Sunflower Sisters by Martha Hall Kelly

Still working my way through this.

The Deep by Alma Katsu

I’ve been reading this on and off for a long while, and I’m just over halfway through the book. It’s had its interesting parts so far, but it is kind of slow and drawn out, and one of the main characters has me slightly concerned as to where it may be going. The premise of the book is right up my alley honestly, but this is one that I’m forcing myself to keep reading just in case it gets better.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

A classic that I’ve only ever read bits and pieces of, so I figured that it was as good a time as any to read the whole thing.

The Historians by Cecilia Ekbäck

I saw this on Goodreads, and it sounded good. I was surprised that my library had a copy as it didn’t come out very long ago.

What did you recently finish reading?

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Book 3 in the Shadow and Bone series, with the show being advertised everywhere, I’ve been reading the main trilogy. I enjoyed the first two books in the set and am thus far enjoying this one. I’m about halfway through as I write this, so I’ll likely have it finished in the next couple of days.

The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmer

This one made me cry. I love historical fiction, especially surrounding WWI and WWII, and this story as so moving, and the ending was just ugh! So good.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m still waiting on Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows duology from my library, so whenever those come in, I’ll be reading them. I also checked out An American Marriage by Tayari Jones, To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Humankind by Rutger Bregman, and Atonement by Ian McEwan, so I’ve got a variety to pick from.

Have you read any of these? What are you reading this week? Let me know in the comments, and have a good week!
