WWW Wednesday

Hello hello! I haven’t made a post in a bit because of the intensly busy Thanksgiving holiday last week. I was off work for 5 days but I legitimately stayed busy every single day. Now I am heading into finals week at school! But I want to get this post out there because it looks fun and quick. Plus it gives you a little update as to where I’m at with my reading plans.

I saw this post over at Books and Blends. The original tag was created by Taking on a World of Words

 The Three Ws are:

What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

I am still reading  A Court of Wings and Ruin. It is taking me forever and a half to get through it. It is not taking me awhile because it is bad or even slow. It is jus
huge at about 700 pages. I am nearing the halfway mark but I am fearful I will not be able to finish this book before the two read-a-thons coming up on Dec. 3rd 
I am also still listening to The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. I am almost done and I have thoughts. I am looking forward to reviewing this book because I need to vent about quite a few things in this book. Heres a hint: I can’t wait for it to be finished!

If you’ve read my previous posts, you know that my last read was Nevermore by Jessica Townsend. and A Court of Mist and Fury. It has been a slow reading month for me but thats ok. I plan to do a full series review for The Court of Thorns and Roses trio (plus the novella) as soon as I finish them all.

Besides the books I am reading for Cosyathon and Tis The Season A Thon, there are a few books I want to finish before the year is out. The first book is The Real Michael Swan by Brian Reardon
One of my best friends, Mindi, lent me this book over the summer and I still haven’t read it yet. I fell into discovering YA fantasy for the first time and let go of my adult fiction TBR list. But now that I have had a solid 3 months of reading YA, I am ready to start incorporating my classic reading style back into the mix. This is a suspense/thriller that revolves around a man being stuck on a train. That is all I really know about it. Mindi gave it 5 stars, so I’m anticipating liking it!
The only other book I want to read before the year is out is A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult. I have always loved Jodi Picoult. I discovered her in high school and was captivated with her story building and writing style.
I have read almost all of her books. Spark of Light is her latest novel. Picoult often revolves her plots around moral dilemmas and offers a variety of perspectives to really make the reader struggle to take sides. From what I understand, this is a multi perspective narration style of several people experiencing an active shooting scenario inside an abortion clinic. I know Jodi is considered a progressive in the realms of politics, so I am interested how she offers the perspective of the anti-choice movement. I am also interested to read about her research process because I know that she goes in depth with her research when she is writing about a topic.
Thats it! I hope you all have a great day!

  1. I dont k ow iv I need to create an account in order to comment, but I’m just gonna write this out and see what happens lol.

    Firstly, I miss you on booktube but I gotta say your blog is looking pretty cool! There was once a time when I debated starting one, I still consider it now and again.

    Sucks that ACOWAR is taking forever for you, I sped right through that book like it was no bodies business lol, I actually dont remember a lot of what happened because I read it so fast, I might have to reread it. Regardless I do look forward to your review for it.

    The cover of The Hating Game always reminds me of the cover of The Kiss Quotient so I always get the 2 plots mixed up lol. But I’m pretty sure the Hating Game was well received so it’s interesting that you have such strong feelings. Is it a smutty book? That’s really the only thing that will get me to read a contemporary romance, honestly lol.

    I am so excited for you to get back into your love of adult thriller! I really need some recs in this genre. I’ve never really read anything in that genre, I dont know if You by Caroline Kepnes counts lol. I really want to pick up Dark Places and Sharp Objects.

    Jodi Picoult was in my city a while ago doing a signing for this book, I had no idea what it was about until now. The cover definitely doesnt give me abortion clinic shooting vibes lol. Have you read The Pact by her? That’s the one book that keeps getting recommended to me.

    Great post Shelbi!!!



    1. Tabby my love! Thanks so much for coming over here to read and comment! I sometimes miss Booktube too and I’ll probably still occasionally create some content over there!

      The Hating Game is kinda smutty. Not really though. Not enough for me to recommend it to you if you don’t like contemporary. I have 2 hours left in the audiobook and they still haven’t had full on sex. *sigh* I CAME HERE FOR THE SEX. I read The Kiss Quotient too and have similar feelings about it as The Hating Game. But The Kiss Quotient actually has some pretty good sex scenes!

      So Gillian Flynn who is the author of Sharp Objects and Dark Places is just a bit too dark for me lol. Same with Stephen King. I recommend The Good Girl or Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica. I really liked those!

      I have read The Pact by Jodi Picoult but it wasn’t my favorite. I remember loving Vanishing Acts and Keeping Faith. Let me know if you read either of those because I’ll re read them for a buddy read since it’s been so long since I read them!
