Recent, current, and future reads | WWW Wednesday [5.4.22]

This is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words that asks us to answer the three Ws:

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

Happy Wednesday, and Happy May!! I’m feeling very optimistic about my reading this month. I’ve already finished one book, close to finishing another, and have lots of free time for reading coming up since finishing classes for the ’21-’22 year.

I was able to get through a lot of These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong last night at work. Technically, I’m not supposed to have headphones in while at the circulation desk, but I think my customer service was top-notch, regardless. I’m 69% done with the audiobook, and I hope to finish this soon because it is so good. Nothing like I imagined it to be. Just a truly wild story.

I also went to Barnes and Noble yesterday to pick up Book Lovers by Emily Henry which I had to start immediately, obviously. Only about 40 pages in, but I can tell I’m going to love it. And because I couldn’t just get one book at B&N, I came home with about 6 or 7 books (post on my haul forthcoming).

I’m reading a third book as well: Of Beast and Burden by Kelsey Kicklighter. I know, wild. I usually like to be reading one book in each format: e-book, audiobook, and physical copy. This one is an e-book, and it’s a review copy, coming out next Tuesday. I’m about halfway through. It’s a quick read, but pretty underwhelming so far.

I finished The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes the other day (review to be published in the next few days). It was my first read of May, and it’s making me feel pretty optimistic about my reading habits this month! It was definitely an interesting read, and I’m looking forward to starting the next book soon.

Like I said, I’ll be starting The Hawthorne Legacy soon. I could wait on this, but I checked it out from the library, so I only have about a week and a half to actually get to it. I also think that if I don’t pick it up now, I won’t ever get to it. It’s not that I didn’t like the first one, I just wasn’t completely sucked in. I do want to see what happens next, so I’m making myself pick this one up.

My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell is part of the haul I brought home yesterday. I didn’t know anything about it until I saw it on the shelf. I’ve obviously seen it everywhere, I just never really looked into it. After reading the back though, I’m absolutely intrigued and super looking forward to starting it.

What are you all reading today?

  1. That pretty much sums up my feelings on Of Beast and Burden, too. Underwhelming. So much potential, but it just doesn’t quite get there!
