W.W.W. Wednesday #4 || Book Meme

Hey beautiful people!

Welcome back to another W.W.W. Wednesday post! Let’s just get right into this one 🙂

What is WWW Wednesday?

WWW Wednesday is a book meme originally created by A Daily Rhythm and revived by Taking on a World of Words. To participate, simply answer the following questions every 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?

|| 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: The Book Junkie Read-a-Thon has begun! This is the book I chose for the first prompt as part of the Outlaws, so I’d like to get started!

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

|| Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston ||

Synopsis: When 16-year-old poetry blogger Tessa Dickinson is involved in a car accident and loses her eyesight for 100 days, she feels like her whole world has been turned upside-down. 

Terrified that her vision might never return, Tessa feels like she has nothing left to be happy about. But when her grandparents place an ad in the local newspaper looking for a typist to help Tessa continue writing and blogging, an unlikely answer knocks at their door: Weston Ludovico, a boy her age with bright eyes, an optimistic smile…and no legs.

Knowing how angry and afraid Tessa is feeling, Weston thinks he can help her. But he has one condition — no one can tell Tessa about his disability. And because she can’t see him, she treats him with contempt: screaming at him to get out of her house and never come back. But for Weston, it’s the most amazing feeling: to be treated like a normal person, not just a sob story. So he comes back. Again and again and again.

Brief Thoughts: 100 Days of Sunlight is such a beautiful read … honestly, probably one of my top reads this year. If you’re looking for that uplifting read with beautiful writing, read this. AND you’ll be supporting a blogger!

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?

|| Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins ||

Synopsis: Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair, a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond.

While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.



Brief Thoughts: This is the second book I picked for The Book Junkie Trials challenge, so it’ll be next on my list. I’m also just excited because I think it’s going to be SUPER cute!

Well, would you look at that. Post number 4 is complete! What have you recently finished? Any good recommendations? What books do you have planned next?

  1. Hi Jenna … I’ve just finished Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez – excellent. I’m currently reading an ARC of The Glass Woman by Caroline Lea – atmospheric and tense. Next up is Madame Fourcade by Lynne Olsen which is non-fiction. I read her book Citizens of London which was a superb non-fiction account of WWII London and three Americans who made a difference.

And I would TOTALLY buddy read but I plan to read it this month for The Book Junkie Trials read-a-thon! But I’m ALWAYS down for another buddy read!

  2. Love these!!

    I just finished one today that was by far my favorite book this year! A Curse of Gems by Brittany Fichter. It’s the newest release in her Classical Kingdoms series. She does amazing, AMAZING retellings! And her originals were fantastic, too! Reading a request next, a book about a princess who frees gladiators and loses her title because of it? It looks good!

  3. Ooh, Matilda – one of my favourite childhood books!
    Red, White and Royal Blue sounds so so good, I can’t wait to get to it & although I hadn’t heard of it before now, the synopsis for Prince Charming also sounds really interesting!
    Seems like royals is a theme in contemporary this year haha 🙂

    1. I’m about halfway through and I forgot how funny and cute it was! Red, White & Royal Blue was PHENOMENAL!!!!! You are going to absolutely adore it! I heard Prince Charming is VERY cheesy but I’m perfectly alright with that 🙂 I kinda want something more cheesy in the summer 🙂

      And I noticed that as well!

    1. Oh my gosh Kelly … it’s so goooooood! Honestly, a beautiful story! I wasn’t expecting it to be that good.

      I just finished Matilda and i forgot how funny it is! Funny enough, I prefer the film adaptation. The pacing is much better in the film than the novel. Fingers crossed I’ll post my review tomorrow or later today ha-ha!
