Hi Friends! Happy Spring! WWW Wednesday is here once more so I figured I would update on my reading agenda. Today’s post will be done in twos, meaning two books for each W!
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Alrighty! Let’s get started!
I’m working on this eArc from NetGalley called, The Remarkable Inventions of Walter Martinson by Quinn Sosna-Spear. I really like the steampunk vibe this book gave me when I initially read the synopsis. I’m still at the beginning, but I’m already excited to see how it will turn out. Released date is 4.2.2019.
The second book I’m working on is Laurie Halse Anderson’s poetry memoir, Shout. Most known for her work, Speak, Anderson has never been afraid to write, speak out, and advocate for survivors of sexual assault. For the first time in 25 years, she is telling her story. I’m only halfway through this book and I can feel the raw emotion that Anderson has poured into her poetry. Like Speak, this is not for the faint of heart, but definitely one of the most important works I’ve ever picked up. This book was released 3.12.2019.
A friend of mine on Goodreads finished the book, The Boy, The Bird, & The Coffin Maker by Matilda Woods (released 5.1.2017) and, like so many people out there, I judged the book by its cover and was intrigued to see what it was about. This fairytale-like story was as hopeful as it was sad, and the illustrations were whimsical. Did I mention the text and illustrations are printed in blue? Because that was an awesome surprise when I opened this book!
Of course, I could not pass up the opportunity to read Angie Thomas’ latest book, On the Come Up (released 2.5.2019). If you have not read her first book, The Hate U Give, you should stop reading this post and go get that book now! On the Come Up is a separate novel set in the same neighborhood as the previous story. This book is about Bri and her fierce passion to become a famous rapper. Like The Hate U Give, this is a book you will have A LOT of trouble putting down once you’ve started reading it.
The next eArc on my list is Hurricane Season by Nicole Melleby. Looking at the title, it may seem obvious what the book could be about, but after reading the synopsis, it seems to be more of a metaphorical title than a literal one. I’m looking forward to reading this one and seeing how it unfolds. In this story, 12-year-old Fig wants nothing more than to be closer to her father. But with her being a math and science wiz and her father a once renowned pianist, Fig feels far from understanding him. This book will be released 5.7.2019.
The next book I’ll be reading next is Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeymi (released 3.6.2019). I have been seeing this book all over social media and have heard AMAZING things. When the book appeared in the stack at my library, I snagged it before anyone else could. I read the synopsis and now I’m itching to get started. I have a feeling this is going to be a un-put-downable book.
