WWW Wednesday #14 (July 08)

Hi! It’s time for a WWW Wednesday post, a meme formerly hosted by MizB @ Should be Reading and now hosted by Sam @Taking on a World of Words. To play along, answer the three questions:

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


Currently reading

I’m currently reading 4 books:

I started Emerald Green on July 5th, I believe, Pretty Dark Sacrifice on July 6th, and the other two yesterday. My reading schedule has been quite busy! Luckily, it’s summer vacation here in Canada, and I have lots of free time on my hands. 🙂 I’m currently around 35% in Emerald Green (sadly I haven’t been able to read this much!), 30% in Pretty Dark Sacrifice, 40% in Never Have I Ever, and 45-50% in Ugly Love.

Recently finished

I finished 8 books this week:

I’m extremely happy and surprised with the number of books I’ve been able to get through this week! I finished the three books I had been reading last week, and finished 5 other books (even though only 2 of those books are ones I had actually been planning on reading). Of course, The Twits & The First Lie are pretty short books, basically novellas, but they still count as books read! 🙂 I wasn’t planning on reading Sapphire Blue (and now, Emerald Green) but after re-reading Ruby Red I just felt like binge-reading the series! XD

Read next

I didn’t get the chance to get to Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold or The Ugly Stepsister by Aya Ling this week, so I’ll be focusing on these books next.

I’m also thinking of reading Twisted by Holly Hook, Learning to Swim by Sara J. Henry, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling, and/or Hello, I Love You by Katie M. Stout.

I’m extremely wary of Hello, I Love You, and after reading so many bad reviews on it, I had been seriously considering to forego my usual rule of giving all books a chance (no matter what reviews I’ve read said). But in the end I decided I’m going to read this for my Popsugar challenge; ‘a book with bad reviews’.


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

Happy Wednesday!

That’s What HE Said Thursday #12 (July 02)

Hi there! I’m back from my day outside yesterday celebrating Canada Day with a That’s What He Said Thursday post, a meme hosted by Chapter Break. Today I’ll be featuring Gideon de Villiers, from Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier!

Ruby Red_bookcover“You have a mother?” Only when I said it did I realize what a silly question it was! For heaven’s sake!
Gideon raised one eyebrow. “What did you expect?” he asked, amused. “You thought I was an android put together by Uncle Falk and Mr. George?”

This isn’t a romantic quote or anything, it just kind of shows Gideon’s sense of humour and an interaction between Gideon and Gwyneth. 🙂

 

So that’s it for this very brief That’s What He Said Thursday post! Have a great Thursday!

Teaser Tuesday #12 (June 30): Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

It’s Teaser Tuesday time, (a meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm)! To play along, simply open to the page you’re on in the book you’re currently reading and share a ‘teaser’ from it.
Today I have a teaser from Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. This book is a re-read for me, and I’m really enjoying it. 🙂

Ruby Red_bookcover“How can she expect us to believe a word of what she says anyway?” asked the man by the mantelpiece. I thought his way of acting as if Mum and I weren’t even in the room was very arrogant. “I have the clearest recollections of the lies Grace told to protect Lucy and Paul at that time. It was her fault they got away from us. If it hadn’t been for her, we might have been able to avert the disaster.

-Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
