WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words and you just answer three simple questions and BA-DA-BOOM! You are done.

So the three WWW’s are:

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

Currently reading:

I am putting ‘An Offer From a Gentleman‘ on the back burner for now because my mind is getting kind of tired with the historical romance trope (see I do get tired of historical romance too ya know). Now, this is rare for me but I am SUPER STOKED to read ‘Holiday in the Hamptons‘ because the heroine in this book of Felicity Knight and I got a teaser of her romance in ‘New York Actually’ and I was beyond intrigued so when I knew it was on Netgalley I had to request for it and I JUST GOT APPROVED FOR IT TODAY!!!! ‘Murder on Black Swan Lane‘ will probs be my second read.

Recently finished:

Read ‘New York Actually‘ and ‘Lies Jane Austen Told Me‘ consecutively actually so both of them only took me two days and a half then I had to literally force myself to stop reading because including last weeks books I have been reading all of them consecutively and I can FEEEEELLL my eyeballs are straining to keep up and for a girl who already has glasses with the degree of 500 plus I better take the hint.

Reading next:

Huh. I tried making a TBR for myself and I tried to stick to it. It didn’t work. I lined up 6 books already set for me to read so I can reign in the beast that is my Netgalley books list but it completely went haywire and I only read 2 out of 6.

So the three WWW’s are:

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

Currently reading:

Wow two Regency era-ish books and one contemporary but inspired by a woman who lived in the Regency era (correct me if I am wrong though).

Recently finished:

I went on a reading rampage, okay not really because the Sherlock Holmes books and Pride and Prejudice were audiobooks. With Julia Quinn’s books, that I really did went on a reading rampage. After I finished ‘Because of Miss Bridgerton‘ I immediately read ‘The Duke and I‘ and subsequently ‘The Viscount who loved me‘ (both of which I read and finished in the same day, how is my eyes still functioning is a mystery to me). Aside from ‘Ensnared‘, June proved to be a very good reading month and it isn’t over yet yeay!

Reading next:

All books by Julia Quinn especially the Bridgerton series. I will attempt to finish reading it all by the end of this week.

Was supposed to be The Captive Heart but I wanted something fun and upbeat to counter the murder mystery I just finished so Geekerella it is.

Recently finished:

stalker on the fens

This book was okay I suppose. I didn’t really like how it panned out at the end but I’ll explain more when my review is out.

Reading next:

I am back to the usual I have no idea what I am going to read next answer. Hahah.

Currently reading:

Yeah, still attempting to read Dorian Gray albeit unsuccessfully. It is not my fault that the book is tedious to read what with its intense and in depth prose. You really need a lot of focus to read it man.

Stalker on the Fens and The Captive Heart is my random Netgalley choices for this week and they seem like a very interesting read. One is detective-murder-mystery-ish whilst the other is romance with a hint of murder mystery at least according to my understanding of the blurb.

I will try my very best to finish these two first and Dorian, well with him I’ll see how it goes first.

Recently finished:

 

I had a good reading week with these two and gave them both a 5 rating. With Evidence of Love I loved how it delves into the lives of everybody that was even slightly connected to the gruesome murder of Betty Gore in the 1980’s whereas Finding Kate, I liked how it managed to change my mind about it the more I read it. I was out to hate this book and at the end I was impressed how it wasn’t how I initially thought it would be.

Reading next:

 

As you guys who have been reading my blog knows I really don’t like to set whatever I am reading next. I like to go with the flow but I really have to get on top of my Netgalley TBR list and thus I chose Geekerella and Above Suspicion. Why I chose these two was because there was a lot of hype surrounding Geekerella and I want to see is it worth it and also I think these two books complement each other. After reading some heavy material that is Above Suspicion (what with it being non-fiction) I can read Geekerella to take a chill pill.

Now if I manage to read all of this that means 6 down in my TBR list and another 76 more books to go. Huh. Why did I go overboard with Netgalley, all the articles I read said to control oneself. CONTROL ONESELF! and I have obviously gone and done the EXACT OPPOSITE.

and I hopelessly failed this test 😥

Death and Her Devotion by Kendra Elliot (Rogue Vows #1)

To be quite honest I read this kind of halfway and left it to read something else so now I have to reread it because I completely forgot everything. Ma bad. I requested it in Netgalley pretty much because I thought the cover was pretty cool. Has a very ethereal out of this world feel, if you get what I mean.

Recently Finished:

 

I am starting to think that whenever I read a 5 star rating book (in my opinion), I will definitely read a book that is just ugh or worse leaving me so confused I have no idea what rating nor review to give it. Why? I was already frustrated enough reading the ending for ‘The Devil’s Prayer‘ then for me to read something so not worth my time such as ‘The Bachelor Auction‘ which let me tell you girlfriend was so all over the place what with characters that defo do not act their age is just B-SHIT….AND THEN to read a story that was so confusing for me as to whether it was good or bad or in between or WHAT???? until I have no idea what rating to give it on Goodreads I just gave it a 3  (I am talking about you ‘All Darling Children‘ don’t you try to slither yo-damn-self away from me). I just feel so frustrated man. FRUSTRATED! Can anybody just relate to how I FEEEEELL?? THE FRUSTRATION I FEEL IN MY HEART??? Huh. Cait from PaperFury was right when I took her quiz of what type of book reviewer am I and I got ‘The Flammable Feels Master’ and damn straight I am! Huh. I legit feel so sad over my frustration with the two books I just read. They ruined my happy reading streak. HAPPY READING STREAK *pooooof out the window* Her post/quiz is here btw, you guys defo need to try the quiz. It is so much fun.

one gif isn’t enough to portray MY FEELS

 

Reading Next:

I seriously have no idea how people just know what to read next? How? Tell me how. I usually go into deep debate on which book to read from my Netgalley TBR list. DEEP DEBATE PEOPLE…WITH MYSELF. Maybe I will read another romance novel or the next novella in the Rogue’s Vow series. Maybe. I ain’t promising nothing.

This is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words and pretty much you just answer the three questions below and voila! You’re done.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently reading: 

Hmmm.. I am currently reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (J. K. Rowling) and Ink and Bone (Lisa Unger). 

I am reading Ink and Bone because it’s going to be archived soon on Netgalley and since I just recently got approved for it I gotta speed read it so it won’t affect my rating score. Not easy to do since I am just into my new hobby… brush calligraphy!!!! 

Also, I am STILL reading HP because I kinda got sidetracked reading Red Queen so I thought hey with HP I can afford to postpone reading cause I have read the book *many many MANY times* AND I own it.

Recently finished:

41VTPDCAq5L._SX330_BO1,204,203,200_Recently finished Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. This book went from a 4 rating and plummeted to a 2 rating once I started thinking long and hard about it. Yeah I do realize that in the blog post it was a 3 rating BUT in my Goodreads I put a 4 then it went down to a 3 then at last a 2 rating.

I have been disappointed by the books I have been reading lately. They’re either just okay or just plain ugh *shudders*.

I NEED ME SOME INSPIRATION!!! Because let’s be honest when reading multiple ‘okay’ books coupled with a few ‘ugh’ ones, one tends to lose hope and goes into a READING SLUMP! I want to avoid that thank you very much.

Reading next:

I think I will start reading The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell next since I am already a few pages in. I borrowed it from the local library because I thought the book cover looked really funky and beautiful. Don’t you think so? It’s kinda a bit much but it’s still interesting all the same and besides I am a sucker for anything bright colored. My favorite colors are anything bright… even neon colors.
