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?
Okay, so I didn’t actually finish this one because I DNF’ed it, but I haven’t finished anything yet this month because I’ve been debating whether I would keep reading THE PAPER & HEARTS SOCIETY or if I should give it up. There were some things I liked about it, but in the end some of the things that annoyed me about it just got to me too much. The main issues I had were that the plot was extremely predictable and Tabby had no personality. She has anxiety and likes books but other than that, she’s perfectly bland and just wasn’t an interesting character. I wish the book had been about Olivia or Cassie instead. The romance was also extremely predictable and boring, and the characters had no chemistry because they were the most white bread boring characters of the book. I liked the quiet writing style in this one, but I just couldn’t get past being annoyed at Tabby for some of her decisions, lack of agency, and boring personality in the end.
I already talked about THE GRAVITY OF US in my last WWW Wednesday post so I won’t repeat myself other than to say it is AMAZING and keeps getting better and better as the story goes on. LOVING it. Anyway. I bought DAISY JONES AND THE SIX on impulse last weekend when I went to Books a Million for the first time in forever and decided to give it a go because the book community is in love with Taylor Jenkins Reid. I am loving it so far and will definitely be reading my eBook that I bought a while ago of THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO when I’m done because I need more of this author in my life.
Since I’ve been on a mini romance kick this year I’m debating giving Jasmine Guillory a shot next. I bought THE PROPOSAL a while ago and keep meaning to read it. I also bought THE WEDDING DATE on the same whim that got me DAISY JONES. I think I’m just in the mood for a little romance, I guess.
