Hey beautiful people!
Welcome back to another W.W.W. Wednesday post! Let’s just get right into this one 🙂
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?
|| 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?
