WWW Wednesday: 14 April 2021

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking On A World Of Words. WWW Wednesday is a quick look and current update in the life of a reader, by answering three simple questions.

The three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you finish reading recently?
  • What do you think you will read next?

What are you currently reading?

The Scarlet Dress by Louise Douglas. I absolutely loved The House By The Sea by the same author, so I have been excited to start The Scarlet Dress. So far I have not been disappointed although it does have a very different feel. It is a multi person POV, which is not always my preferred style in a murder mystery, but I am enjoying the read.

101 Creative Journaling Prompts by Kristal Norton. I’ve been trying to get a bit more inspired in my writing lately, so I’ve been working my way through some of the prompts in this book.

What did you finish reading recently?

Fan Art by Sarah Tregay. I thought this book was just okay. It was light and easy to read, but honestly the main character Jamie really annoyed me. The entire premise of Jamie’s plot was created, manipulated, and solved by people seemingly controlling his life, and him allowing them to do so, without him actually doing anything throughout the entire book. It just didn’t quite work for me. Several of the chapters ended with some beautiful poems which I thought were a nice touch, but honestly it doesn’t have a whole lot else going for it.

Tanabata Wish by Sara Fujimura. I loved this book. Skyler is a teenager who reluctantly joins her family on a summer trip to Japan. At first she is sullen and sulky, annoyed that her parents have essentially ruined her summer (and therefore her life), but gradually she discovers more and more things that she loves about the culture. This is a great mental visit to Japan. You can find my full review of this book here.

Break Your Glass Slippers by Amanda Lovelace. I’m still on a bit of a poetry kick, and I have been loving these books by Amanda Lovelace. Her poems keep me thinking for hours.

Milk And Honey by Rupi Kaur. This was another book of stunning poetry that kept me thinking.

What do you think you will read next?

How to write funny characters by Scott Dikkers. This is the next on the list for a bit of writing inspiration.

Hetty Feather by Jacqueline Wilson. Jacqueline Wilson was one of my favourite authors when I was growing up, and I have been patiently (well not so patiently) waiting for my daughter to be old enough for me to be able to read these books with her. Hetty Feather was one I hadn’t ever read, so I’m looking forward to checking it out.
