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 Midnight Library by Matt Haig
This one is different than a lot of the things that I’ve read in the last few years. I’m enjoying the premise so far and what’s been happening. The library of life possibilities is fascinating, and I like how the lives so far have and haven’t been exactly what she asked for. I do feel for the main character; depression is no joke, especially when help is being sought and still not helping in the way hoped for. Spiraling sucks, and add in a hefty dose of self-pity and unfulfilled potential, and it’s a recipe for disaster. Looking forward to seeing how this one continues.
ARC of The Forgotten Bookshop in Paris by Daisy Wood (PUB: October 27, 2022)
NetGalley is always a great place to find new and upcoming books. This is a WWII historical fiction that jumps between the war and modern day. I’ve only read a few chapters of it so far, but I’m liking what I’m reading.
ARC of Daughters of Paris by Elisabeth Hobbes (PUB: August 5, 2022)
This was released this past Friday, and I’m still not done with it, but I’ve been enjoying it so far. It’s another WWII historical fiction that I got from NetGalley.
What did you recently finish reading?
My most recent reads are an ARC of An Artful Murder by Judi Daykin and an ARC of Tarot by Numbers: Learn the Codes that Unlock the Meaning of the Cards by Liz Dean. I enjoyed both books; Daykin’s book was easy to follow, and I liked the way that she presented the story, and Dean’s book was informative and kept my attention – books like this can be dry reads sometimes.
What do you think you’ll read next?
A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book, and my library has both the ebook and audiobook, so this will likely be my next read.
I recently saw the trailer for the TV adaptation that Apple is doing (premiers in a couple of days, I think) of this on YouTube, and it looks so good! I didn’t realize that it was based on true events that took place in the days following Hurricane Katrina and that there was this book about it. My library, fortunately, has a copy, so I checked it out and it’s one of the next on my list.
