Hey beautiful people!
Welcome back to another W.W.W. Wednesday post! I’m actually really enjoying these … I find it helps me plan out what I want to read next more. The only this is I don’t like to add the book I most recently finished because I post my reviews on Thursdays and I want to link to them … so I basically save it for the next week … still haven’t figured out how I’m going to go about this yet.
Well, enough rambling! Here we go!
What is WWW Wednesday?
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Note: I may or may not do this every week — it will depend on my mood and reading progression.
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
|| Nocturnal by Wilder Poetry ||
Synopsis: Nocturnal is a collection of words and imagery inspired by darkened skies and sleepless nights. it is a journey of healing and self-discovery whether love stays or leaves. it is dreaming with your eyes wide open while the rest of the world is hiding.
and when they ask me,
are you afraid of the dark?
i will remind them that
there’s nothing to fear
when the night is a reason
we can see how honest
while the rest of the world
Brief Thoughts: With The Book Junkie Read-a-Thon coming up in July, I wanted to end off June with something light … and I’ve been REALLY missing poetry!
WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
|| Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston ||
Synopsis: A big-hearted romantic comedy in which First Son Alex falls in love with Prince Henry of Wales after an incident of international proportions forces them to pretend to be best friends…
First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations.
The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince …
Brief Thoughts: Red, White & Royal Blue is a FANTASTIC novel! Honestly, Alex and Henry make me so happy — and the other characters are also so lovely — you basically want to be their friends by the end of the novel. If you’re looking for a cute summer read where you’re bound to laugh so hard, this is for you!
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
|| Matilda by Roald Dahl ||
Synopsis: Matilda is a little girl who is far too good to be true. At age five-and-a-half she’s knocking off double-digit multiplication problems and blitz-reading Dickens. Even more remarkably, her classmates love her even though she’s a super-nerd and the teacher’s pet. But everything is not perfect in Matilda’s world. For starters she has two of the most idiotic, self-centered parents who ever lived. Then there’s the large, busty nightmare of a school principal, Miss (“The”) Trunchbull, a former hammer-throwing champion who flings children at will and is approximately as sympathetic as a bulldozer. Fortunately for Matilda, she has the inner resources to deal with such annoyances: astonishing intelligence, saintly patience, and an innate predilection for revenge.
Brief Thoughts: I thought it would be Love & Gelato, but by the time I finish Nocturnal, The Book Junkie Trials will have begun and this is the first book on my list. I haven’t read this since I was a kid, so I’m actually super excited.
Phew … another week complete! What have you recently finished? Any good recommendations? What books do you have planned next?
