WWW Wednesday – August 28th, 2019

Welcome to WWW Wednesday which is currently being hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. It’s really just a place to do little update on what all you’ve been reading lately. Anyone is welcome to join, just leave a link to your post in the comments and be sure to give the appropriate credit to Sam!

The Three W’s are:

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

What are you currently reading?

  • Surprise, Kill, Vanish by Annie Jacobsen – physical book
  • Morning Star (Red Rising, #3) by Pierce Brown – audiobook, reread
  • Middlemarch by George Eliot – physical book
  • The Game of Love and Death by Marth Brockenbrough – physical book

I’ve finally passed the halfway point on Morning Star, which is pretty exciting since my life has been taken over by podcasts lately… You know, it happens to the best of us.

And no, I haven’t really made any progress in the other novels. My plan is to focus on The Game of Love and Death this weekend and try to finish that one up. I will admit it’s a bit slow-moving and I’m craving a little something more exciting to keep my attention to help pull me from this mini reading slump.

What did you recently finish reading?


  • The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – physical book

Y’all, I have very conflicted feelings on this book. I mean, it took me over a month and a half to finish. I was super excited for this book but it just didn’t live up to the hype for me. It took wayyyy too long to get to any serious action and that it was one of my main pet peeves when it comes to novels.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson – physical book
  • The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #1) by Jessica Townsend – physical book
  • The Oracle Year by Charles Soule – physical book

What are you currently reading? What books did you finish this week? What are you planning on reading next? Have you read any of the books on my list? If so, what did you think of them? Leave a link to your WWW Wednesday post in the comments below!

  1. I’m sorry to hear The Priory Of The Orange Tree didn’t live up to expectations! I haven’t been able to find the courage to start it myself. xD

    Have a wonderful week and happy reading! Here’s my WWW.

  2. Been thinking of reading The Priory of the Orange Tree, but it’s a little daunting… probably won’t be making it onto the TBR pile. But, Nevermoor and The Red Rising trilogy might 😍
