WWW Wednesday! January 30, 2019

img_1384-0
Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! Can you believe that this is the last Wednesday in Jan? This month has gone by entirely too fast for me.
WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a 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:

 

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly

Her One Mistake by Heidi Perks

Since last week I finished reading:

 

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn*  (5 Stars)

*Popsugar 2019 Challenge Prompt: a book that should be made into a movie

A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult (5 Stars)

*Popsugar 2019 Challenge Prompt: a book that takes place in a single day

Last Breath (Detective Erika Foster #4) by Robert Bryndza (5 Stars)

Cold Blood by Robert Bryndza (5 Stars)

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate, illustrated by Patricia Castelao (5 Stars)

Call Me Evie by J.P. Pomare (3 Stars)

Next, I plan on reading:

 

Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid*

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

A Beautiful Corpse (Harper McClain #2) by Christi Daugherty

The House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne, illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard 

 

Well, that’s what my reading has been like since last week! 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. A Spark of Light was very good, but I think I’ve enjoyed all of Picoult’s books. I hope Her One Mistake is good. It sounds intriguing. You too and thanks for sharing your WWW post.

    1. I bought the hardcover copy of A Spark of Light but ended up listening to it on audio, which worked better for me with the story for some reason. I’ve never read Amanda Prowse but have one of her books. I hope you’re enjoying what you’re reading/listening to!

    1. Thanks! I really enjoyed everything I finished this past week, so that was a plus! I can’t wait to read Daisy Jones either! It’s been so hard to wait, especially since I’ve had it since August! I hope we both enjoy both of these! Thank you…you too! ❤

  1. I wasn’t as crazy as I wanted to be over Lilac Girls although I do have the sequel lined up to read. The Alice Network also left me feeling somewhat disappointed and A Spark of Light was a bit disappointing. I think the Picoult book didn’t work for me because I just do not gel well with the notion of time travel in books. I do hope that you enjoyed them all, Stephanie. Super interested in the Daisy book.
    I am reading The Heart’s Invisible Fury with Jan, The Dinner List, and Love and other Words.

    1. Thank you, Marialyce. I’m only one chapter into Lilac Girls, so I guess we’ll see how that one goes! I think I will love Daisy Jones, but I have loved all of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s books-if I don’t I’ll be rather upset since I’ve been waiting since August when I get the ARC to read it. Oh, I hope you love Heart’s. I’ve been meaning to read it since it was published and will read it this summer! I read Love and Other Words a few weeks ago and loved it, so I hope you both do too! The Dinner List is on my TBR as well.

      1. Fantastic! Just know that her other books are way different than Evelyn Hugo if you’ve read that one and Daisy from what I can tell by reading the first chapter. Her previous books are more Romance mixed with Contemporary Fiction, but they are wonderful. She just really came into her writing style/chops when she wrote EH and it looks like she’s continued to grow with Daisy.

    1. I have not heard of that book, but I hope you’re enjoying it! You sound like me! I just keep reading without writing my reviews because I really hate writing reviews (and anything else), so I now have 9 reviews that need written. But I keep on reading, Haha! I’ll get desperate the night before one needs posted to my blog and write in a frenzy and promise to catch them all up and never do that again….but I won’t!

      1. I don’t feel so bad then! I maxed at 19 over the summer and almost had a panic attack. Oh, it would take me days to write 15 review or even my 9 since I edit myself 20 billion times and stare at a blank screen so if I can get 1 cranked out in 2 hours or less, I’m lucky (one reason why I put off writing them because of the time). I hope you get some written though! I do have to get at least 3 written between now and then end of next week or I’ll have no reviews to post, haha.

    1. Thank you! Annie and I are going to buddy read it, so I’m super excited about that!! It’s one of mine too-well, my most anticipated winter release, so I hope it lives it to my expectations. But I’ve loved every book that TJR has read, so I’m hopeful. Thanks!

  2. Lots of highly rated books you’ve just finished, I quite like the look of a few of them. And the one on your TBR list, A Beautiful Corpse, looks like my cuppa tea (big crime thriller fan). I’ve just finished a few more Linwood Barclay novels as I’ve read a lot in the same series out of order, and now I’m on another James Patterson women’s murder club book, 16th Seduction. Addictive reading.
    Happy Reading lovely 🙂

    1. I did have a great reading week, that’s for sure! I was glad for no duds, lol. I think I read one Linwood Barclay book years ago and enjoyed it, but I didn’t realize at the time I started it that it was a series and just never read more. I just read so many series and like to read them in order. I love Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club series-that and his Alex Cross are about all I read of him any more when I used to read everything he wrote. He just publishes too much now, lol. I love crime thrillers too. I’ve not read the 1st book in the series that goes with A Beautiful Corpse, but the publisher sent me the book-fingers crossed I don’t miss too much by not reading book 1. It’s set in Savannah, GA, so I’m excited about that since I love that city, and I’ve heard outstanding things about book 1 and so far book 2! I think you’d like it (them) if you like crime thrillers! Happy reading to you too, Caz! xoxo ♥

  3. Lovely post, Stephanie! These look like some really great books!
    I’m looking forward to reading Daisy Jones and the Six as well! I loved the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, so I’m very eager to get my hands on more of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s work!
    Anyways, happy reading! ❤

    1. Thank you so much! I really enjoyed the ones that I just read. Daisy Jones is going to be so good–I just know it! Evelyn was brilliant! I’ve been reading Taylor Jenkins Reid since she published her first book and have loved all of them although I have to say that Evelyn was much different than anything she wrote before and it appears that Daisy is too. Her backlog is more Contemporary/Women’s Fiction/Romance, but they are great, in my opinion. I highly recommend them. I think as long as you know before reading them that they are much different than Evelyn then your expectations won’t be for another EH. Thanks-you too! ♥

    1. Thanks–I’ve only had a chance to read 2 chapters in it, but I liked what I read so far! I got caught up reading some March ARCS and had to put my personal book aside, but I hope to finish it this week. I’ve heard it’s so good!

  4. These all are so marvelous!! I have Call Me Evie up on read next list. I hope to get to it this week. Fingers crossed and all of that. Also, add me to the list of those who are far behind on their reviews. I read and read and it seems like I’m always writing but I’m still behind. I’m not behind on reading, just writing.

    1. Enjoy Call Me Evie–it’s a twisty read because I had no idea what was going on until about the last 1/3rd! I’m glad that it’s not just me behind! I’m almost done reading my March ARCS, but I haven’t written reviews for now 12 books, haha! And one releases tomorrow, so that’s not good but I sat and tried to write the review for it yesterday for almost 2 hours and came up with 3 sentences, so I got so frustrated. I’ll try again later. I don’t know what to do when I like the book but just can’t come up with the words because that’s my biggest downfall when it comes to writing my reviews…writer’s block and it’s so time-consuming for me. I’m always reading and trying to write anyway. One way or another, I’ll get them reviewed…
