WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking On a World of Words. It’s a meme that takes place every Wednesday, where the posters discuss 3 Ws:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
📚 Piranesi by Susanna Clarke – Still struggling with this one to be honest. Maybe it’s the writing style? I don’t know but when I put it down it’s a struggle to pick it back up again.
📚 The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien – I finally got a new boxed set of The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy for my birthday on Monday. I’m planning on reading all the books this summer. I read The Hobbit when I was in elementary school and I continued until halfway through Return of the King then stopped because it was so descriptive for a grade 5 kid.
📚 Consent by Annabel Lyon – I really loved this book and the parallel between Saskia and Sara was so well done. The writing was suburb, and I can see why it was on the long and shortlist of the Women’s Prize this year.
📚 A Chorus Rises by B. C. Morrow – WOW! Just… I will read anything Morrow writes. I was super skeptical upon finding out this book would be about Naema, I didn’t like her AT. ALL in A Song Below Water, but she was 100% re-deemed in this one. I’m still in awe at Morrow’s writing and how she weaves current issues into her novels. Standing ovation yet again.
📚 The Queen Bee and Me by Gillian McDunn – this was such a fun middle-grade book! I really enjoyed the characters, they acted very similar to grade 7/8 girls. It was also informative as there were facts about bees interspersed throughout the novel but it was in such a way that didn’t deter from the characters or plot.
📚 The Red Word by Sarah Henstra – Yet another Canadian book. I heard this one is HEAVY so I plan to read it with something light as well.
📚 More Than Us by Ryan Jones – This author is local-ish to me. By local, I mean about a 40 minute drive down the highway.
