Another week has passed and it’s time for WWW Wednesday again!
Hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words
(formerly hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading)
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
To join in this meme, just answer these three questions and post the link to your responses on Sam’s blog and in the comments below.
I am currently reading:
The Beauty That Remains by Ashley Woodfolk
Music brought Autumn, Shay, and Logan together. Death wants to tear them apart.
Autumn always knew exactly who she was—a talented artist and a loyal friend. Shay was defined by two things: her bond with her twin sister, Sasha, and her love of music. And Logan always turned to writing love songs when his love life was a little less than perfect.
But when tragedy strikes each of them, somehow music is no longer enough. Now Logan can’t stop watching vlogs of his dead ex-boyfriend. Shay is a music blogger struggling to keep it together. And Autumn sends messages that she knows can never be answered.
Each of them wonders: How different would my life be if this hadn’t happened? And now that it has . . . what’s next?
This is an ARC I received from NetGalley. I’m really liking it so far and LOVE the diversity of the characters. The only complaint I have so far is that when I first started reading it, I had trouble remembering the names and backstories of each character because there were just so many of them. I even pulled out a notebook and started writing notes to try to keep track. But once I got about a third of the way into the book, I finally had them all figured out and started enjoying the story more. Now I’m fully absorbed in the story and can’t wait to see what happens next.
I just finished reading:
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
The instant #1 New York Times bestseller–soon to be a major motion picture! In theaters May 19, it stars Amandla Stenberg as Maddy and Nick Robinson as Olly.
Risk everything . . . for love.
What if you couldn’t touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face . . . or kiss the boy next door? In Everything, Everything, Maddy is a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world, and Olly is the boy who moves in next door . . . and becomes the greatest risk she’s ever taken.
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
Everything, Everything will make you laugh, cry, and feel everything in between. It’s an innovative, inspiring, and heartbreakingly romantic debut novel that unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, illustrations, and more.
I really enjoyed this book and gave it a 4/5 score. I’m super excited to watch the movie when it comes out and see how it compares to the book (of course, the book is usually better, but I can see how this book would make an excellent movie).
What I’m reading next:
Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.
Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.
Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.
Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…
And she’ll need to play.
This is an ARC I actually won from a GoodReads giveaway. I loved the title and cover art and the description is definitely intriguing. Hopefully, it’s as good as it looks.
So that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week. What have YOU read this week?
