WWW Wednesday: Roar, Evelyn, and Jane

Hi friends! WWW Wednesday is a meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Game plan is simple – answer the three questions and leave a link on Sam’s post. Kind of like Goodreads but more intentional.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

So without further ado:

What did you recently finish reading?

Over the weekend I finished Roar  by Cora Carmack and loved it. It is a YA fantasy with all the best magic, romance, and a kick butt heroine. The book is about 400 pages, but I managed to finish it in a few sittings and late nights. No regrets.

This morning I read the last bit of The Wildling Sisters by Eve Chase. I am still processing it, but I loved the dual-timeline and elements of Gothic fiction in the book. The book is centralized over events that take place in the Summer of 1959 so I felt like it was the perfect time of year to dive in. The book is due to be published late next month.

What are you currently reading?

I just started reading my library copy of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and even though I am only twenty pages in I already know that it is going to be just as marvelous as its recent reviews. I love a book full of strong women characters, and I knew this novel was going to move mountains when I read the dedication.

On audio I am waxing a little nostalgic, wrapping up The Complete Works of Oz with Glinda of Oz , the fourteenth installment in the series and the last book Baum wrote before his death in 1919. All of Baum’s books can be found on Amazon free for the Kindle. I was inspired to read the series by my daughter’s ballet recital, and it has been more enthralling than I had anticipated. With over 90 hours of audio the read through has been quite an undertaking, but well worth the time to check this childhood classic off of my bucket list.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Next on my list is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë and Reader, I Married Him, a collection of short stories inspired by the book. I have read Jane Eyre once before, but it has been ten years since, so I thought it was high time for a refresher.

Question of the Day:

What has been on your WWW list? Any books you’re particularly excited about? This summer I have been cycling through four books at any time, so I like seeing where I’ve been and (maybe) where I am going.

    I’m so embarrassed to say I never read The Wizard of Oz. My brother read the first two but I never borrowed them. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

  2. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Roar, but I’m still not sure if I actually want to read it. I’m not totally sure what it is about the book that has me questioning it though, haha. Regardless, I’m glad to see you liked it 🙂
    Thanks for stopping by my WWW!
