  Hosted by Taking On A World of Words .      The Three Ws are: What are you currently reading?   What did you recently finish reading?   What do you think you’ll read next? I'd been in a reading slump for awhile, and couldn't get into anything! It was such a bummer. But I finished two amazing books this week so things are looking up! Recently Finished I loved The Kiss Quotient!! Stella was such a great character. I flew through the book.  I also stayed up late last night to finish Where the Crawdads Sing, the Reese Witherspoon September pick. It was fantastic! One of my favorites of her 2018 picks. Currently Reading     I started this one right before Where the Crawdads Sing came in for me at the library, so I set it aside. Excited to dive back in because I was hooked right away! Up Next I've heard this one starts out a bit slow, but I've also heard it is amazing! Have you read it? What did y

  Hosted by Taking On A World of Words .      The Three Ws are:   What are you currently reading?   What did you recently finish reading?   What do you think you’ll read next?     Recently Finished     Was so disappointed by the August Reese Witherspoon book club pick. It started out with potential, but I just didn't care about or connect with any of the characters. To All the Boys I've Loved Before was delightful. I can't wait to watch the Netflix movie! Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine was absolutely fantastic. Quirky, relatable, honest. So, so good. I highly recommend it.   Currently Reading   JUST started this one. Have you read it?     Up Next     What are you reading this week? Happy Reading!
