WWW Wednesday // 8th July 2020

Hey everyone!

It felt like I posted reading updates just two days back but it’s been a whole week. Where is the time going?

Also, I have the same attitude when it comes to reading nowadays. I barely notice time and just.. don’t seem to read books as much? My pace is slowing down because I’m watching stuff on Netflix.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly blogging meme hosted by Taking On a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

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

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading 101 Essays That Will Change the Way You Think by Brianna West. I’m reading one chapter a day so… you’ll see this book in my updates for a long time haha. It’s still going good, though!

The next book I’m currently reading The Marriage Game by Sara Desai which is a book from my TBR that I’ve been meaning to get to. I’m really glad I finally picked it up because it is GOOD. All the desi chaos + rivals-to-lovers makes for a great book.

I’m also currently reading Seeing Like a Feminist by Nivedita Menon which I’m buddy reading with a friend. I specifically bought this book as a paperback so I could annotate a lot. And I am! There are so many annotations so far and it shows how well I’m processing everything in the book.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished two books in the last week which is lesser than my recent average of 3 but I’m not sad about it. Better reads > many reads.

#1

The first book that I finished was The Boyfriend Project by Sarrah Rochon which I LOVED. It was a great book with really good characters. There were multiple factors about the book that appealed to me and I will be posting a review on this in a couple days. Keep an eye out for it!

5/5 stars.

#2

The next book that I finished was Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds which I “read” as an audiobook. It was good in the beginning but it’s a long book and I started to lose interest about 4/5ths into the book. I honestly pushed myself to finish it yesterday because there were other books that I wanted to get to.

2.5/5 stars.

#3

I actually also started another book but I didn’t finish it because it was so bad. The book was The Dare by Elle Kennedy. I randomly picked it up because it was on the New Adult section in Goodreads. It sounded like an unlikely romance so I tried it.

And it was the same, recycled story that we’ve seen too many times where the fat girl thinks she’s ugly and a hot guy comes along and validates her. It’s so frustrating. I gave up on the book around half-way through. It reminds me of the old romance books that I used to like because I thought there was nothing better.

Not recommended.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve been waiting for Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall to release and it finally released yesterday. Hopefully, I can read it soon because there’s been a lot of talk around it.

I also hope to pick up Room by Emma Donoghue soon because I!! Need!! to read!! it!! soon!!!!

  1. I’ve only read one Elle Kennedy book. I think it was The Dare? But I’m not sure. Memory fails me lol, but it was the first book in whatever was her really big NA series that now has the Briar U spin off. Anyway… long story short, I didn’t like it at all! And yet everyone else I know that has read it thinks it’s great 🤷🏼‍♀️ Just don’t get the hype with her as an author I guess ☺️💚💖💜

    1. The author’s works apply to a certain taste, I believe. Bland college stories that are mostly ONLY about the romance. And generally don’t have diverse characters. So yeah, it’s not surprising you didn’t like it.

  2. It looks like you have a very interesting time reading. So many different feelings about your books. That’s neat. (Well, obviously, it would be better if you would only read great books but hey.) 😉
