WWW Wednesday: March 24
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 just finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you'll read next?
I haven't been posting as much lately--life has just been crazy! I finally got a break last week--I took all last week off of work. I did not sit in front of a computer for the entirety of my time off and it was much needed! I didn't go anywhere (thanks covid) but enjoyed some relaxing time at home reading, relaxing, watching TV, and doing yoga. It was super chill and just what I needed! This post will cover what I've been up to, reading wise!
I really enjoyed the majority of these reads--especially The Rose Code, Fly Away, and Summertime Guests. If you love historical fiction, The Rose Code is a must read. Fly Away (the sequel to Firefly Lane) was fantastic. I noticed on goodreads that it gets a lot of criticism for being too sad but....that's the point, considering the subject matter. I thought the book was heartbreaking yet completely on point. Summertime Guests was also a great read with so much depth--more than I expected at least. Full review right here on April 9 as part of the blog tour.
I also finished listening to The Heart's Invisible Furies--which EVERYONE had been telling me to read. I don't know if my expectation were too high, but I liked it but didn't love it. The second half was definitely better--the first half was a bit slow for me. I didn't like The Sanatorium--but that genre just isn't for me in general. If gothic thriller is your genre, you'll probably enjoy it.
I'm so excited about The Women of Chateau Lafayette! Stephanie Dray co-wrote My Dear Hamilton, one of my favorite reads so far in 2021. Homeland Elegies is for our Yoga + Beer book group and it's fantastic so far. This is what I love about book groups--this book wasn't on my radar until it was chosen for this month. I hear about The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake on Sarah's Bookshelves Live podcast about backlist books--Catherine from Gilmore Guide to Books recommended it and it sounded interesting to me. Since it's back list (2010) it was easy to find the audio copy through the library. I'm enjoying it so far!
I'm not sure which of these exactly, but these are on my soon to be read list.
What are you reading this week? Happy Reading!
