WWW Wednesday (8/21/19)

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three 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?

I’m currently 50% through Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane. It’s good so far! The quality of prose is stunning and I’m quite enjoying the premise as it unfurls, but for me it’s missing a certain magical something that could make it a page turner enthralling enough to read for hours on end. I do understand the hype though, and this is one of the few books that is checked out everywhere throughout my library system. Come to think of it, I have never seen a book checked out or waitlisted in every library for miles and miles. Still surprised to have it in my hands so soon from Libby/Overdrive.

What did you recently finish reading?

Girl Made Of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake was a great read, still working on my review of it. The story is heavy and filled with complicated emotions but told with great warmth and sensitivity for the most part. This is a YA novel centered around the aftermath of the rape of a teenage girl. The story is told from the perspective of the alleged perpetrator’s sister who is caught between loyalties but makes a choice on who to believe. There is one area in which I think this novel was particularly insightful and offered an important message, more details on that in the upcoming review but I can say overall that I quite liked this one.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne is a library book, been meaning to read it for some time now. Enemies-To-Lovers themed romance that seems to have way above average prose and sounds fun!

All Systems Red by Martha Wells is a first-in-series novella that has some really fantastic reviews. It’s a short one to make quick work of through my goal of 100 novels this year, and I’m really excited about the plot based on all the positive thoughts I’ve read about this book. Since I don’t read this genre much, a novella seems like an ideal entry point.

The Miracles Of The Namiya General Store by Keigo Higashino is a newly English-translated Japanese novel that I don’t know much about but a cursory glance of a few reviews and summaries has me keenly interested. Was accepted to review an ARC of this and it’s coming out in September, very much looking forward to being on the cutting edge of a new release.

Thanks for reading this week’s WWW on my blog! Have you read any of these books or have plans to? Have you also done a WWW on your blog, if so I’ll check it out. I welcome your thoughts/comments, and as always-
