It’s been a few weeks since I did a WWW Wednesday post, so I have a lot of recently finished books to tell you about.

What are you currently reading?

a night in with grace kelly (libby lomax #3)Novel (in print): A Night In With Grace Kelly (Libby Lomax #3) by Lucy Holliday

I randomly picked up the first book in this series at the library last year, and I loved it. Libby is hilarious. The situations she gets in are ridiculous. And the funny, sweet romance is a lot of fun. This is the conclusion to the series and I’m cringing at the misunderstandings and hoping for the best for Libby and her friends.

Novel (audiobook): Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Abertalli

Simon is gay. But nobody knows except his email pen pal (who goes by the pseudonym Blue) and Martin, the guy who saw Simon’s email and is now blackmailing him with the knowledge. Pair this with the ups and downs of high school, managing friendships, and just living life. I’m loving this book. Simon is freaking adorable! I’m hoping for the best for him too!

 

What did you recently finish reading?

the little paris book shop by nina georgeNovel (in print): The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George

What a lovely read. This book is so different from so much of what I’ve been reading lately, but it was refreshing. Mature and sweet and about embracing life — both the joy and the grief — and really living. Monsieur Perdu is a 40-something bookseller who finally opens the letter that the love of his life gave him before she left him. He hasn’t seen her in 20 years. The letter starts him off on an adventure to find her and find himself.

 

Novel (audiobook): The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Abertalli

I identified with Molly so much. I remember the wonderful sweetness and exhilaration of my first boyfriend and the weirdness of high school and trying to figure out where and how you fit. This book is super fun and I sped through it.

 

The Hating GameNovel (in print): The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

This may be my favourite book of 2017. It may even be in the running for my favourite book ever (although I’m not sure anything will be able to knock Pride & Prejudice out of the top spot). I laughed out loud so many times. I couldn’t put it down. I snuck glances at it while it rested in my purse during the hours between when I arrived at work and when I could take my lunchtime reading break. This is definitely one of those books that lived up to all the hype around it.

 A Court of Wings and RuinNovel (in print): A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas 

I waited a year for this book and it was worth the wait. A full review will be coming to the blog soon. But, I must say, that as much as I liked it, I didn’t love it as much as ACOMAF. When I finished it, I didn’t have an immediate pressing need to reread it. I did have that with ACOMAF.

What do you think you’ll read next?

thetightropewalkersNovel (in print): The Tightrope Walkers by David Almond

I mentioned this book in my last WWW Wednesday post. I meant to read it right away. But, then I got the notification that The Hating Game was waiting for me and I had been wanting to read that book for months, so I read it first. And then ACOWAR came out, and well, as you probably know, it took over my life. But this book is next!

  1. I am currently reading Her Father’s Daughter by Gene Stratton Porter. Published in 1922. It’s about a high school girl in California. She drives a Bear Cat roadster. Her parents were killed in a motor car accident 4 years ago and she is just beginning to know that her sister is working at cheating her out of her inheritance. The sister is also cheating people out of their lovers, out of land they want to buy, out of their position in society.
    I am not enjoying this book, but I am reading it for historical context. The white supremacists that we have in the United States government are disgustingly prevalent in this novel and I am interested to know how it was woven into society 100 years ago.
    I did finish reading Captives by Jill Williamson. I didn’t really enjoy that one either.
    I reread Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea. I know they would never have been published in our era. Why do we read classics if we are not allowed to write like them?
    I read His Banner Over Me by Jean Little. Very interesting true story look at the life of Missionary Kids 110 years ago. Sent away to Canada when they were old enough to go to school (age 7). I have a friend who suffered the same fate. She doesn’t feel she belongs anywhere. Gorrie in His Banner Over Me is honest about God, that He is the cause of all her sorrows. She still goes back to the mission field when she grows up.

  2. Current: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
    Recently Finished: The Revenge of Seven by Pittacus Lore
    Read Next: whatever strikes my fancy!
