WWW Wednesday! January 09, 2019

img_1384-0

Hi all! It’s crazy when I look back, but I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday post since the end of June and they’re one of my favorite memes! I made one of my blogging goals for this year to try to do more memes (or at least incorporate one or two regularly on my blog), so here goes….hopefully, I can stick with my resolution! 
WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on World of Words. Here’s how it works: all you need to do is answer the following three questions and link back to her, or you can put your answers in the comments on her blog!

The three WWW questions are:

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

 

Currently, I’m reading:

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara*

*Popsugar 2019 Challenge Prompt: a book published posthumously

The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls by Anissa Gray

The Winter of the Witch (Winternight Trilogy #3) by Katherine Arden*

*Popsugar 2019 Challenge Prompt: a book published in 2019

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate, illustrated by Patricia Castelao

 

 Since the beginning of January I finished reading:

More Than Words by Jill Santopolo (3.75 Stars)

Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren* (5 Stars)

*Popsugar 2019 Challenge Prompt: a book that has “love” in the title

Dark Water (Detective Erika Foster #3) by Robert Bryndza (5 Stars)

The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth* (4.5 Stars)

*Popsugar 2019 Challenge Prompt: a book about a family

Wishtree by Katherine Applegate, illustrated by Charles Santoso (5 Stars)

 

Next, I plan on reading:

The Huntress by Kate Quinn

The Secret of Clouds by Alyson Richman

Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid* (my most anticipated winter 2019 read, eek!!)

*Popsugar 2019 Challenge Prompt: a book with no, unusual, or unconventional chapter headings

 

 Well, that’s what my reading has looked like lately! How about yours? What good books are you reading this week or have you recently finished? What wonderful books do you plan on reading next? I’d love to hear what you’re reading so I can have more ideas for my ever-growing TBR pile! 🙂 Have a great week!!

    1. The Mother in Law was good; I think you’ll enjoy it. Hepworth is really fantastic. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark is one I’m enjoying a lot, but it’s scaring me to death because it’s true! I hope you get a chance to finish it.

      You too, Laurel. Thanks for sharing your WWW post!

    1. So far I’m thoroughly enjoying it although it has scared me to death, lol! I made my husband add another lock to our sliding glass door because he works overnights and it’s just me home with my daughter at night now that the boys are away at college, so I really freaked out, Haha! It’s funny that none of the scary horror or fiction books I’ve read have done that but I guess knowing it actually happened just made it real. The writing is stellar; I hate she never saw the book published or him caught. It’s excellent but tragic too. I can’t wait to finish it.
      I’m really looking forward to The Huntress!! I know it’s going to be amazing! Thanks! You too!

      1. I know what you mean, it freaked me out too! I felt so connected to it because it all takes place in CA where I live. He also stalked multiple cities I either lived in or have visited. Not during his rein of terror, but just knowing he was there is very unnerving! I agree, it is a shame she never got to see the book come to light. BUT it is amazing that her hard work really paid off and he was finally caught!

      2. Oh good, at least it’s not just me! If I were in CA right now, I’d be really freaking out, so I can only imagine you were unnerved! My hubby is from Southern CA and grew up there in the early 70s’ to 1990 with his mom and sister, so I kept telling him the other night that he grew up there when the GSK was active and who knows he could have seen him just walking around and never known…he thinks I’m crazy. I probably am, but with all the cities and houses he robbed over that timframe, it’s hard to know who you encountered! I was going to ask my mother in law if she remembered anything about the crimes, but I thought it might freak her out…You’re right, it is amazing that her work paid off the way it did and he was caught! I just can’t believe how old he is; I’m afraid he might just die in jail before he ever gets sentenced. That would be a shame!

    1. My reviewing mojo disappeared over the holidays, lol. I’m hoping doing a meme or two will bring it back or I’m going to be in trouble with a bunch of books about to publish, lol. Memes are fun…hopefully we’ll both get back to them. 😊 Thanks!

    1. Thanks Jonetta! I think I read 1 every day or 2, but I usually read anywhere from 2 to 4 books at a time so I can go back and forth. If one is stellar though, I read it exclusively. They mostly are different genres. I like to mix things up, and I’m homeschooling my 3rd grade daughter this year, so I’m usually going to be reading a children’s fiction or nonfiction each week. Thanks! You too!

    1. Ha, I’m not at all surprised! I hope I can keep the momentum going with my challenge, but I’m glad that I’ve knocked 5/50 out so far! Thanks for the encouragement! Thanks so much, I hope I keep having some great ones!! xoxo

    1. Omg, I thought I answered you! I must have started typing and walked off, lol. Yay for Daisy Jones!! I was planning in starting it next week, or after I finish the 1-2 ARCs I’m reading now, since it comes out March 5th, but I can push it a couple of weeks if you’re reading other things. I’ve never done a Buddy read!! Group reads, yes, but not a buddy read!! Woohoo! And with one of my favorite people! When you get a chance, message me on Twitter and we can work out the dates…and you can explain how a buddy read works, LOL! ♥
