WWW Wednesday #10 (June 10)

Hey! Time for another WWW Wednesday (what a coincidence it’s my tenth one, on the tenth of this month!) A meme formerly hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading, WWW Wednesday is now hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.

All you have to do to play along is answer the following questions:

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

Currently Reading?

I’ve been reading Deception So Deadly by Clara Kensie since last Wednesday (check out a teaser on it here) and today I just started Unleashed by Liz Coley. Unfortunately I’m not that far into either of them, but so far they’re both enjoyable.

Recently Finished?

The immediate book that comes to mind is Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer. Other books I’ve finished include A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas & Zaria Fierce and the Secret of Gloomswood Forest by Keira Gillett. (Reviews to come for all, hopefully soon!) I also finished reading the play script of Romeo & Juliet on a spontaneous decision, for my Popsugar challenge. I’m still deciding whether or not I should do a review on it or not. What do you guys say?

Read Next?

There are still the books I was planning to read this week (for the Popsugar challenge) which include:

  • The Lying Game by Sara Shepard
  • Anna & the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (No longer being used for the challenge. Will get to it another time)
  • Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilber

And I’m also thinking of re-reading (for the challenge):

Apart from these books, I also have a couple of review copies:

  • Wash Me Away by Wendy Owens
  • Unknown Sender by Ryan Lanz

So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! What have you been reading then, now and next? Let me know in the comments below or link your post! 🙂

Happy Wednesday!
