WWW Wednesday #4

I’ve had like a slight slump (blogging and reading) ahaha but here’s to that not happening anymore! And this is also a day late but that’s fine.

I’m pretty sure this is my fourth WWW Wednesday post. Sam @ Taking on a World of Words hosts this so I hope you like this!

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

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris – A friend lent me this and while, yes, it is set in a very dark and extremely sad and devastating time (and I’m not going to try to be like “I don’t like the setting”); the characters are a bit boring and the dialogue definitely reads like a screenplay but also one I wouldn’t really read…or maybe even see…

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi – I’ve been reading this since last year (but like November, okay). But I’m just LOVING IT and I guess I just don’t want it to be over. I LOVE all the characters?! Hypnos is everything.

Red Glove by Holly Black – A longo buddy read but a good one 😁 you know that feeling when you’ve got about 100 things to do and there’s only x amount of hours in the day (depending on when you wake up and go to sleep) and you just… go watch the Jurassic Park trilogy even though you’ve seen it about 70 times?

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman – I need to get into this one again now I have The Toll so I might set some time tomorrow to delve into the world of Scythedom.

The Rising by Ryan Troske – A reread for reasons. But it’s a good book if you’re looking for a Percy Jackson meets X-Men book!

Recently Finished

Release by Patrick Ness – I LOVED THIS BOOK. I would also DIE FOR ADAM. This was my first Patrick Ness book and it made me hungry for more, so I will definitely try his other books! Which one do you recommend for me?

The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees – Because I like to be honest here, I spent so long reading this book and there were times that I wanted to dnf it. But I decided to keep on reading it. AND I WAS REWARDED. It was spooky but also excellently mesmerizing. Also the cover looks more like a face. And then hands are somewhere in there too. Tell me I’m not alone?

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – This was BEAUTIFUL – I also love the movie. Mostly because Keiynan Lonsdale (amazzzing singer). I unfortunately did give it 4 stars instead of five, because I did not like Simon’s friends.

Read Next

I’m flying home on the second of February and because I don’t really sleep on planes (if you’re someone who can, you’re amazing), my Kindle will be fully loaded and I’ll just watch movies or listen to music and readdd. That is, unless the airline decides to cancel the flights as it’s come into a lot of trouble – but then again that’s just South Africa in a nutshell.

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord – I succumbed to the hype. But in my defense I read there’s banter and someone said the one character uses a Sure, Jan gif and my mind went “All right! We’re doing this.” Because I use that gif a lot.

Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland– This is probably like the second or third time I’ve put this book on the Read Next part but like… I MEAN IT this time! Do you hear that, brain??

Rogue Princess by B.R. Myers – Sci-Fi Gender-swapped retelling of Cinderella with that cover? You best believe I’m interested in reading it.


I’m only listing three books. But hopefully I’ll start like 2 or 3 more books at the same time – as the drive home is under an hour. And it’ll be around noon when I get home so uh yeah, coffee and a good book. But yeah! That’s what I’ve been reading recently, what I’ve just finished and what I’ll be (hopefully) reading soon!

    Anyways, I wasn’t a fan of Rogue Princess, it was one of the ARCs I got at YALLFEST and I didn’t click with the writing AT ALL. It ended up not being my thing, but I think you may like it! (I still struggle with Sci-Fi, and this read very similar to Lunar Chronicles which I also didn’t like, so that may explain it.)

    1. I’m loving the characters from TGW! I’m listening to the audiobook and I am laughing at some of the dialogue and scenes because I love them.
      Oh no! Sorry you didn’t click with the writing – hope you picked up a book after that that you really liked! As much as I love sci-fi, I have trouble reading hard sci-fi – so I hope it isn’t hard sci-fi.
      Haven’t read Lunar Chronicles yet 🤦🏻‍♀️


  2. 😂😂😂 we will eventually finish Red Glove!! (maybe…)
