WWW Wednesday is a book blog meme hosted by Taking On A World of Words where book bloggers answer these questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What are you reading next?
- What did you just finish reading?
As noted in my weekly wrap-up from last week, I finally finished the Grisha trilogy! And it was great! I’m still so ashamed of myself for not reading this series sooner, especially considering how much I liked it. It is totally worthy of all the hype it gets and I can’t wait for the Netflix series and I can’t wait to see Oncat on screen. Oncat is the best thing to ever happen to the Grisha trilogy, full stop, period, etc.
I started reading SCYTHE by Neal Shusterman because it’s one of my library’s summer reading books for the teens and I do want to read at least most of them so I can book talk them at outreach and when kids start signing up for the program. I thought I was over dystopian books and was a little nervous going into it, but Shusterman IMMEDIATELY sucked me in because the writing is SO GOOD and the premise is actually kind of cool and different. I’m only about 7% into the book so far but I am HOOKED and can’t wait to keep reading it.
I really need to read RUKHSANA ALI because I’ve had it out from the library for a few weeks now and it was one of my most anticipated January reads. I’m all for queer books PLUS this one is partially set outside of the US which is a not often explored land in YA I tend to read which is exciting plus other diversity plus just OMG I need to read this book.
I also just checked out Gretchen Rubin’s book THE HAPPINESS PROJECT. It’s a self-help book, which is a genre I’ve gotten somewhat interested in the past couple years, and it’s about her journey of trying various methods of getting happier, basically. I’m not familiar with her blog or podcast but I’m very curious about this book and hope it has some helpful tips for me to keep going on the positive trajectory that I have been on as of late.
