WWW Wednesday // 29th July 2020

Weekends are when I do most of my reading.

I usually do read during the week as well. But in the last week, I found myself scrolling on my phone and texting more than reading. Sometimes I just watched Netflix. But when the weekend came around, I was pumped to read and read a lot.

After the weekend ended, I have not read one word so far.

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 currently in the middle of the audiobook of Black Flamingo by Dean Atta. I’ve seen many people recommend this and it has been on my audiobook shelf for a while now. I’m almost an hour in and its turning out to be good.

I also picked it up because it’s short. My audiobook usage has been reducing lately.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished 3 books, 2 of which I had been reading for about 2 weeks.

#1

The first one that I finished was Meet Cute: Destined to Meet by Jennifer L. Armentrout and other authors. Many YA authors come together to write meet cutes in many different settings. The book also has very diverse characters and stories. I really liked reading this, and each story ends during/after the first meeting. The rest is up to you to imagine.

3.5/5 stars.

I had been planning to read Room by Emma Donoghue for at least a month but had been procrastinating. My goal for July was to finish this book because I kept pushing it off. Since the month is almost ending, I finally made myself pick up the book Friday evening.

And I finished it in 24 hours! It was not an addicting book but it was easy to read and breeze through. I also did skim some parts because they were boring and had more details than what I cared for.

The book is written well and captures a 5 year old’s perspective well, especially with changes and new introductions. It was interesting. But it wasn’t very engaging. I also wasn’t moved by it. And hence, the book was just okay for me.

2.5/5 stars.

Take A Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert was the last book that I finished. I was listening to it on audiobook, which was a nice experience. I do think that I would have enjoyed the book more if I had read it instead of listening to it, but it was still good.

The characters were very charming! The main couple were funny and easy to relate to. Their chemistry was also very on-point.

My only problem was with the audiobook because “Zafir” sounded like “Zafia” which was very annoying. But on the other hand, Zafir’s accent in the audiobook was so cool. I really liked that.

3.5/5 stars.

What are you planning on reading next?

I have an ARC blog tour coming up for Dating Makes Perfect by Pintip Dunn next month so I’d like to start that this week. I usually do take a while to review so I want to read it a little bit advance.

Also, I’m doing a blog tour after SO LONG. I generally don’t go for blog tours or ARCs unless I’m really looking forward to it and can commit my time to it. This book sounds really good so I signed up for it and can’t wait to read it!

Other than that, I’m not sure. I might pick up something for the 2020 Popsugar Reading Challenge maybe? Let’s see.
