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!

Exploring My Bookshelves: June

Hi! It is the last Friday of June, which means a Exploring My Bookshelves post is in order! This is a weekly meme created by Victoria @ Addlepates & Book Nerds, adapted into a monthly meme here at Book Snacks following Summer, who originally came up with the monthly idea over at her blog, Xingsings. Make sure to check out both of these lovely blogs, for they are quite wonderful!

Anyway, on to it. The rules for this meme are the following:

1. Post a picture of your bookshelves (preferably literal, but e-book shelves work too)

2. Follow the theme/question about the books on your shelf that Victoria will have set out for us for that week. (Eg. favourite author, cover, etc.)

3. Include the cover and what you thought of it (if it’s read).

4. Link your post!

EMB #8: a book you were gifted (June 5th)

I actually realised that I don’t really get actual books as gifts, I mostly get Indigo gift cards or something. But I do have a few books I was gifted, one of them being The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m planning to!

EMB #9: a book you regret buying (June 12th)

My first answer for this would be Flash Point by Nancy Kress, but since I already used that book for another Exploring My Bookshelves post, I’m going to say Since Last Summer Summer by Joanna Philbin, sequel to Rules of Summer. It’s not that it was a bad book or anything, but I could’ve easily done with reading it from the library or something, instead of actually buying it.

EMB #10: an author you can’t stop reading (June 19)

So many for this one! But I’ll go with three: Cassandra Clare, Jennifer Armentrout & Sarah J. Maas. I absolutely love all the books I’ve read from these authors!
Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments & Infernal Devices series is addicting, and I love both of them, especially the Infernal Devices.
I have yet to read Jennifer Armentrout’s New Adult books, but I love her Covenant series, her Lux series & Dark Elements series! They were all amazing. I also really loved her stand-alone novels, Don’t Look Back & her novel on Wattpad, The Dead List.
As for Sarah J. Maas, I love her Throne of Glass series & A Court of Thorns and Roses, the first book in a planned trilogy. The world-building is just great, and her writing is great!


There is technically supposed to be one other EMB post, as there is 4 Fridays in June, but as Victoria is on vacation, there is not another topic set.

So, that concludes this month’s Exploring My Bookshelves! Feel free to comment on the above topics or link your posts!

Happy reading!
