WWW Wednesday #18 (August 5)

Hello! How are you all on this fine Wednesday? I am taking a little break from my sighting around Quebec to take the time to update you guys on my reading! Let’s get to it—It’s time for WWW Wednesday, 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 3 books (kind of a relief after these past weeks of reading 4-5 each week, lol). I’m really enjoying both of them, and I’m constantly finding an excuse to read them! Even though technically I’m supposed to be spending time with my family and visiting places around Quebec, hehe. 🙂 The writing in The Summer of Chasing Mermaids is so beautiful, I’m loving it! And Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares and The Wrath and the Dawn is a really interesting read.

Recently Finished

I read 5 books this week, as you can see. They were all great, I’m happy to say! Me Before You was a touching and wonderfully written story (it managed to get me to shed a tear, actually! And if you know me you know how rare that is for me). Hide and Seek was thrilling and suspenseful, just like its predecessors. Your Voice is All I Hear is another great book, but my emotions are still a bit all over the place. And I was so excited to read Every Last Breath, I’m so glad I received it before I left for Mont Tremblant, because I got the chance to read it on my trip. It was really good! I would say I’m pretty happy with it.

Read Next

I can’t wait to start The Wrath and the Dawn! I wanted to start it during this past week, but I never got the chance, and plus, I wanted a bit more summery reads. I didn’t want to start The Wrath and the Dawn when I was in the mood for a different genre, it would ruin the experience. But I’m definitely going to be starting this book this coming week, I can’t wait! And Until We Meet Again and The Sister Pact are both looking great too. And as for The Night Circus, I think it’s high time I start this one! I’ve heard generally positive reviews on this, but there are some mixed opinions, so I’m curious.


So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! What do you think of this week’s selection of books? And what have you been reading now, then and next? I’m running a bit late now, so that’s it for now! I gotta go and visit some more places in Quebec but feel free to leave a comment below with your thoughts and your WWW Wednesday!

Happy reading!

WWW Wednesday #17 (July 29th)

Hello! It’s time for WWW Wednesday, 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 am currently reading 2 books; (a record low for me these days) Me Before You by Jojo Moyes & Hide and Seek by Sara Shepard.

Recently Finished

I finished 6 books this past week:

So far I only have a review on Simon vs, [which you can check out here] but I will be posting a review on Made You Up later this week, along with a review on What You Left Behind. Hopefully. I’m still trying to sort out my thoughts on Yes, Please, so I can’t really guarantee a review on it yet. In any case, I did enjoy the majority of these, especially Simon vs., Made You Up and What You Left Behind.

Read Next

Wow, I can’t believe the number of contemporaries I’ve been reading lately! I must really get to some fantasy and paranormal reads, I’m missing out on so many of them! Lol.
I can’t wait to read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, I read so many great reviews on it (like Summer’s one) and I really want to read it, along with Finding Audrey, I’ve heard great things about that one too. I’ve also heard good things about Your Voice is All I Hear and Until We Meet Again, and I got approved for them on Netgalley so I can’t wait to start them both! The last two books are books I will be reading as part of August read-alongs, I’m so excited to start them, especially readalong for The Wrath and the Dawn, which is being hosted by Bibliophile Gathering  .


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

• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) (I’m doing one) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

Me Before You_bookcover

This week I have for you a teaser from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, a touching story I’m really enjoying so far! I’ve actually been kind of neglecting the other book I’m currently reading, now that I think about it! Oh well.

“I hadn’t realized that music could unlock things in you, could transport you to somewhere even the composer hadn’t predicted. It left an imprint in the air around you, as if you carried its remnants with you when you went.”

-Me Before You (43%)

What do you think of this teaser? Have you read this book? Are you planning on reading this book? Let me know in the comments below!

WWW Wednesday #16 (July 22)

Hey there fellow bookworms! 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 3 books. I’m enjoying them all, even Yes Please, to my delight. 🙂 Usually books like Yes, Please isn’t my thing, but I guess I’m okay with it so far. What You Left Behind is an e-ARC I was approved for on Netgalley, and I’m also really liking it! I actually think I might be able to finish it today or tomorrow. Like Candy is a review copy and is also pretty good! This week’s current reads are looking pretty good so far, thankfully! 🙂

Recently Finished

I finished 6 books throughout this week:

Oh god, just looking at this list shows me how behind on my reviews. In my defense though, I have lots of books I’m reading! But still. No excuse for my slacking…again. Either way, I enjoyed most of these, although The Almost Moon & Hello, I Love You are… still under debate, let’s say. It took me a LONG time (like, REALLY LONG) to get through The Almost Moon. I don’t know, I had other books I was reading, and I just wasn’t in the mood to read The Almost Moon most of the time. Magonia, Spellbinder and The Heartbreakers, on the other hand, were super quick reads; they were all addicting and I finished them really quickly!

Read Next

Learning to Swim and Me Before You are both for my Popsugar challenge. After I read read those I think I’ll have only a few left! XD Hide and Seek is the fourth book in The Lying Game series, as I recently finished the third book, I felt compelled to continue with the next book! I finally got a Netgalley account (Yay!! I’m so excited!) and I got approved for an e-ARC of Until We Meet Again. It’s on my TBR and I’m super excited to read it! Simon vs and Made You Up have both been quite hyped up in the bookish community, and I really want to read them this week! I’ve heard such great things.


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

Have a great Wednesday!

Top 10 Tuesday #8 (June 02): Top Ten Books That Are Planned to be Movies

Hello lovely bookworms! The time has come for another Top 10 Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is top ten books I’d love to see as movies or TV shows, but I’m going to change it up a bit and do top ten books that have been optioned/are under development/are soon to be movies, since I already covered this topic on ABEA Day 4, but oh well.

Eleanor and Park

1. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

This would make an awesome movie! There haven’t been much details about this movie yet, but the rights were purchased, I’m pretty sure. Definitely would go to see this movie!

2. All the Bright Places by Jennifer NivenAll the Bright Places_bookcover

This is also going to be a movie! I believe Elle Fanning has been chosen to play the role of Violet. You can see more details about this here. This was such a heartbreaking story, and simply amazing. Perfect for a movie!

The Night Circus_bookcover3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

According to Popsugar, there hasn’t been any casting news yet, but Jane Eyre writer Moira Buffini will pen the script. I know lots of people loved this book so I’m definitely excited if they’re making a movie! I actually have this book on my shelf, so I’m going to try and get to it soon.

4. Dark Places by Gillian FlynnDark Places_bookcover

Don’t know much about this, but I believe Chloe Moretz (If I Stay) is going to be a part of the cast, along with several other people. I haven’t read this book yet, but I want to! (Have you read this? What did you think of it?)

The Scorch Trials_bookcover5. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

This one is already a planned movie, as it is the sequel to The Maze Runner. I know some people didn’t like The Maze Runner, but I personally was okay with it, and I’m interested in seeing how they do the second movie! Here’s the trailer:

6. Paper Towns by John GreenPaper Towns_bookcover

This is another planned movie, that will be released summer 2015 if I remember correctly, starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne. Check out the trailer below:

Beautiful Disaster_bookcover7. Beautiful Disaster Jamie McGuire

I have this on my TBR, and I actually just found out today that it might be a movie. Better read it soon!

8. Me Before You by Jojo MoyesMe Before You_bookcover

  • I haven’t read this yet (although I will for my Popsugar challenge) I’m dying to read it, especially now after finding out there will be a movie! Apparently Emilia Clarke will be playing the character Louisa opposite Sam Claflin.

Fantastic Beasts_bookcover9. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K Rowling

  • The queen J.K Rowling revisits the Harry Potter universe in this book about Newt Scamander, who “wrote” the textbook that Potter and his classmates would study. (Popsugar)
  • No one has been cast yet, but David Yates has signed on to direct.

10. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom RiggsMissPeregrine'sHomeforPeculiarChildren_bookcover

This will be an amazing movie! I’m not sure if it’s 100% sure that a movie will be made, but if it is, it would be awesome. According to Popsugar, Eva Green and Asa Butterfield will star, with Tim Burton directing.

 


So that’s it for this week’s Top 10 Tuesday! What books would you like to see as a movie/TV show? What books are being planned to be a movie/TV show? Let me know in the comments below, along with other thoughts you might have!

Happy Tuesday!
