By: Manuela Soares

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?

The Day the World Came to Town by Jim DeFede

Reading this for an Around the World book challenge in my Goodreads book club, this will mark off Canada.

The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor

Read this a few years ago and loved it, saw that my library had it again and decided to re-read it.

Nefertiti’s Heart by A.W. Exley

I like fantasy. I like archaeology. I like ancient Egypt. Put all three together and I’ll pick it up.

The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

I recently read Milk and Honey by this author and decided to give this one a go as well. It’s alright so far, the poems are easy to understand, but I think this is one where you have to be in the right kind of mood to read it.

Curse of the Night Witch by Alex Aster

This is one that I found out about on Instagram, thanks to the author’s reel constantly showing up in my feed.

 The Arctic Fury by Greer Macallister

This has been on my TBR for a while, and it’s a book rec from someone in a book club I’m in. I got it from my library, and I’m not far into it, but it’s good so far.

What did you recently finish reading?

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

I admit that I’m not much a poetry person, mostly because I typically have a difficult time with it, but I heard good things about Rupi Kaur and my library had a couple of her books, so I decided to give it a go. These were simple enough to understand but at the same time very powerful poems that made me angry on her behalf yet proud that she is strong enough to publish something like this; not many people are willing to let their vulnerability out into the world.

The Hallowmas Train by Gloria Pearson-Vasey

Won this on Goodreads, and it wasn’t terrible.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m in a mood right now where I want to read but at the same time don’t. So, I have no idea what I’ll read next. I’m open to suggestions, so please send them on over.

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

Happy reading!
