  WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Sam over at Taking On A World of Words .    The three W's are:   What did you recently finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you'll read next? Recently Finished       I listened to You Are Not Alone on audio and I loved it!! My full review was on the blog Monday!  Currently Reading I'm 2/3 of the way through In Five Years and I'm loving it! Both it and A Good Neighborhood , which I just started on audio, are coming out March 10th. I'm reading State of Wonder for #theunreadshelfproject2020 and...I'm not loving it.It's just OK.  I'm totally fine with DNF'ing books, but can I DNF a book for the unread shelf project? I'm torn. Up Next ...I have no idea! The last few weeks my "Up Next" picks have rarely been my next read.  It's so hard for me to pick what I"m going to read next until I am done with

The cost to you is exactly the same. *I receive this book from the publisher via NetGalle y and Libro.fm's ALC program to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and I received no other compensation. About the Book: You probably know someone like Shay Miller. She wants to find love, but it eludes her. She wants to be fulfilled, but her job is a dead end. She wants to belong, but her life is so isolated. You probably don’t know anyone like the Moore sisters. They have an unbreakable circle of friends. They live the most glamorous life. They always get what they desire. Shay thinks she wants their life. But what they really want is  hers. I loved both of Hendricks and Pekkanen's  previous books, The Wife Between Us and An Anonymous Girl, so I was thrilled to get an ALC

What do you think you'll read next? Recently Finished    I love both of these authors and really enjoyed both of these books! Summer of '79 is a novella--my only complaint about it was that I wished it was a full length novel!! It was so good! I LOVED Summer of '69 so it was great catching up with all the characters again. It's only available on ebook for a limited time so get your hands on it now!   I absolutely loved Side Trip--Kerry Lonsdale's summer 2020 release! This will be the perfect summer beach read! Add it to your TBR now!!   Currently Reading  I'm listening to my ALC of You Are Not Alone and I'm totally hooked in and loving it so far. Greer and Sarah are an incredible team! Up Next      Need to get to

Review: Nothing to See Here

Nothing to See Here By Kevin Wilson 254 pages Published October 29, 2019 by Ecco Source: Library Purchase on Amazon   Note: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. The cost to you is exactly the same. From Goodreads:   Lillian and Madison were unlikely roommates and yet inseparable friends at their elite boarding school. But then Lillian had to leave the school unexpectedly in the wake of a scandal and they’ve barely spoken since. Until now, when Lillian gets a letter from Madison pleading for her help. Madison’s twin stepkids are moving in with her family and she wants Lillian to be their caretaker. However, there’s a catch: the twins spontaneously combust when they get agitated, flames igniting from their skin in a startling but beautiful way. Lillian is convinced Madison is pulling her leg, but it’s the truth. Thinking of her dead-end life at home, the life that has consistently disappointed her, Lillian figures she has nothing to lose.

What do you think you'll read next?   Recently Finished      I absolutely loved Nothing to See Here--a good friend recommended it. I probably wouldn't have read it otherwise, so I'm so glad she recommended it! Finally finished The Starless Sea! What a beautiful, but dense, book! Fantasy is not my usual genre but I ended up loving the book, the characters, and the world it created. Currently Reading I started The Book Charmer Monday night. It's cute so far, but I'm not sucked in yet.  I always love a new Susan Mallery read, so I'm reading her latest on my kindle. I JUST found out about Elin Hilderbrand's novella and follow up to Summer of '69. Just downloaded Summer of '79 to my kindle and itching to read it! Summer of

What do you think you'll read next? Recently Finished   My Review: Despite the controversy, I wanted to read this for myself and review it as it is—fiction. I enjoyed the book, though it wasn’t a 5 star read for me. I didn’t connect to the characters as much as I wanted to (except Luca) and the story moved a bit slowly for me. I was definitely engaged in the story and couldn’t stop reading. That being said, the story being told is an important one, as are stories from #ownvoices authors, which I have read in the past and will continue to read and support. Currently Reading I haven't been listening to audiobooks as much lately so I'm still making my way through The Starless Sea. It's not my usual genre, so I have a bit of "wait.....what??" go
