WWW Wednesday – 23rd June 2021

Hey Everyone, I hope you are doing well! Welcome to my WWW Wednesday post for this week. WWW Wednesday’s is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and all it involves is answering three simple questions:

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

What are you currently reading?

At the moment I am making my way through This Fragile Earth by Susannah Wise. I am not sure what I think about this one at the moment! I really like the premise but I feel that there is a disconnect between the characters that I am not liking. I am finding myself getting annoyed with the characters and the way that they are behaving, which is detracting from my enjoyment of the book. But I am hoping that it is going to pick up in the last 100 pages or so that I have to read. If you want to see what I fully think of This Fragile Earth check out my review which will be coming out today.

What did you recently finish reading?

The most recent book that I finished was Only, Mostly, Devastated by Sophie Gonzales. I really loved this book and the way that Sophie Gonzales told the story. There were so many different little Grease Easter eggs that I loved, but I was so happy that they didn’t overtake the whole book. I also loved that it tackles some really serious topics delicately, while also keeping the lighthearted and cute moments. I can’t wait to pick up some more books by Sophie Gonzales.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The next book that I plan to pick up is The Bone Way by Holly J. Underhill. It is a sapphic retelling of Orpheus and Eurydice and I am so excited to finally start it. Orpheus and Eurydice is one of my favourite Greek myth/legends and it hardly ever gets retold (apart from Hadestown, which I love), so I can’t wait to see what Holly has done with it. But I know that I am going to need the tissues if it sticks to the original story.

There you have it, what I am reading this week! Let me know what you are reading this week!
