Hello everyone! WWW Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words and you just answer three questions and leave your links down below!  Sorry I’ve been missing in action for the last few months, but hopefully I’ll be getting back on track with my reading this time around!

 

WWW 3 Ws

 

WWW What are you currently reading

I’m finally reading “Illuminae” by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and it’s pretty interesting so far!  I will admit that the narrative was a bit confusing at first, because I’m not used to reading a book that is mostly set up as an interview or as a Wikipedia page, but it’s starting to grow on me a bit.

WWW What did you recently finish reading

I just finished reading “Shadow of the Fox” by Julie Kagawa and it was amazing!!!  I just loved the Japanese mythology that went into this book and all the characters were awesome, especially Yumeko, Tatsumi and Okame!  After reading the ending of this book, I am so ready to read the sequel “Soul of the Sword!”

WWW What do you think you'll read next

The first book I wanted to read is “Our Dark Duet” by Victoria Schwab.  I had just taken a break from reading this book and hopefully I’ll dive back into it! The next book I wanted to read is “The Cruel Prince” by Holly Black. This was a book that I had owned for awhile now and I’ve been hearing so many good things about this book that I wanted to read it as soon as possible! I had just recently picked up a new book written by C.G. Drews called “A Thousand Perfect Notes” and this would be the very first book I actually read that is written by a fellow book blogger (Paper Fury, anyone?) and I can’t wait to dive into this book soon!

DOWN THE TBR HOLE #2


down-the-tbr-hole

 

Hey everyone! I just saw this interesting book meme on It’s All About Books’ post, which was started on Secret Library, which was started on Lost in a Story and I was really interested in this meme since my TBR shelf is getting way out of hand at this point and it’s time for me to do some cleaning out on my TBR shelf!

RULES:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

So, here’s my first 10 books from my TBR pile that I’m going to go through!

  1. A World of His Own: In the Land of the Creoles by Arlette Gaffrey

TBR 1

VERDICT:

GO

I don’t think that I’m into this type of story, so this book will be off my TBR.

 

2. Across Australia from East to West by Thomas Palfy

TBR 2

VERDICT:

GO

This is another non-fiction work that I am not interested in and the Goodreads rating for this book is a bit troubling for me since I tend to go more for books that are rated 4 stars or higher.

 

3. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

TBR 3

VERDICT:

GO

At the moment, I’m not that interested in reading this book, despite the fact that many people have read it.  I might pick it up later, but for right now, I’m taking it off my TBR.

 

4. The Stranger by Chris Van Allsburg

TBR 4

VERDICT:

KEEP

I had read this book many years ago and I wanted to reread this book to see if my opinions about it had changed. So, I’m keeping it on my TBR.

 

5. Zathura by Chris Van Allsburg

TBR 5

VERDICT:

KEEP

Another book I had read years ago and I wanted to reread again. So, I’m keeping this book on the shelf.

 

6. Mr. Goethe’s Garden by Diana Cohn

TBR 6

VERDICT:

KEEP

This sounds like a cute book that I got to read, so I’m keeping this on my shelf!

 

7. Books for Children of the World: The Story of Jella Lepman by Sydelle Pearl

TBR 7fffff

VERDICT:

KEEP

This sounds like an interesting read, so I’ll keep it on my shelf!

 

8. The Sugaring – Off Party by Jonathan London

TBR 8

VERDICT:

KEEP

This sounds like a cute read, so I’ll keep it on my shelf.

 

9.  Behind the Columns by Arlette Gaffrey

TBR 9

VERDICT:

GO

This book sounds way too depressing for me and I’m not in the mood to read depressing books. So this book will go.

 

10.  The Juniper Tree and Other Tales from Grimm by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm

TBR 10

VERDICT:

KEEP

No way! There’s no way I’m taking this book off my shelf, especially since I love the Brothers Grimm stories so much!

 

I had actually added more books to my TBR since then, so the numbers might be higher than expected.

TOTAL NUMBER OF BOOKS REMOVED:  4

TOTAL NUMBER OF BOOKS KEPT:  6

TOTAL BOOKS LEFT ON TBR SHELF:  729

I just picked up “Shadow of the Fox” by Julie Kagawa and it’s really interesting so far!  I just loved the Japanese mythology going on in this book since I love reading about folklore in general and I can’t wait to see what will happen to the main characters next!

WWW What did you recently finish reading

I just finished reading “The Agitated Agenda” by Candace N. Ford and I LOVED IT!!!  I loved the fact that this was an interracial romance  since it’s rare that I read books that deal with interracial romance.  This book also had a nice balance between being a sweet romance while also being tragic.
