W… W… W… Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Worlds is a weekly meme showcasing what you just finished reading, what you are currently reading, and what you plan to start reading next. Except I’m changing it up a bit, since I can never plan what I’m reading next (moody reader). Instead I’m going to talk about a book I’ve recently added to my TBR that I’m excited about!

WWW post on Thursday…life has been a bit busy this week! My husband was off work the past 3 days, so I took a few vacation days. And my brother and sister-in-law were visiting from South Carolina. We’ve been focused on family time and doing last minute fun things with Sunnie before she starts school next week. That also means I haven’t gotten a lot of reading done the past few days.

 

what i recently finished reading

  

I rarely re-read books, but I decided to listen to the audio of All Your Perfects after having read it a few months ago. And it was just as good the second time. Now I’m planning on listening to all of Colleen Hoover’s books on audio.

I enjoyed The Perfect Couple, but it took me until about halfway point before it pulled me in and I found myself dying to pick it up and finish. I was a little disappointed by the ending. It seemed really anticlimactic. I’ve come to the conclusion this author just isn’t for me, since I’ve tried her books a few times now, and none of them have blown me away.

Good Luck With That is everything I hoped it would be. I find myself reading it slowly, because I’m enjoying it so much and don’t want it to end.

I have been on the library audio hold list for I’ll Be Gone In The Dark for a long time and am really excited to finally get to listen to it! So far it’s really creepy and intriguing and I love the narrator – she’s doing an awesome job!

Taylor Jenkins Reid is another auto-buy author for me, and I’m really excited for her next book!

I’m glad I kept listening to Something in the Water, despite its slow start. I really enjoyed it.

I was on a long audio hold list for The Cabin at the End of the World and finally got a copy last week. What a bizarre and creepy book. There were parts that bored me, and then other parts that were gripping. I listened to the entire book in almost one day just because I had to know how it ended.

I’ve mentioned before how much I love R.S. Grey and her romantic comedies. Not So Nice Guy was just as good as I hoped it would be!

I am enjoying The Perfect Couple, and I’m curious to see how the mystery is going to unfold. At this point in the book I have no clue what’s going on, and I prefer it that way. If I figure out the twist early, the book is ruined.

Good Luck With That is one of my most anticipated books of the year. I was so thrilled that my copy from Amazon arrived a day early, and I started reading it immediately! Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get very far, as the past few days have been super busy.

I read All Your Perfects a few months ago, but started listening to the audio version this week. I’m over halfway and it’s breaking my heart all over again.

Amy Harmon is another auto-buy author for me. I can’t wait to read this book!

I buddy read A Spark of Light with Tina from Reading Between the Pages and really enjoyed chatting with her all week about it. This book is told in reverse order of events, which I wasn’t a big fan of. I think the author was trying too hard to be unique when the subject matter alone was enough to stand out. Not an easy read, as is the case with all of her books, but I did enjoy it.

I finally finished Us Against You. And racked up some small library fees for it being overdue, but oh well. Lol. It was a wonderful read.

I’m listening to Something in the Water on Overdrive and it’s so good! It starts out a little slow – honestly, I almost returned it to the library. But I’m glad I kept listening, because it got really good.

I started The Perfect  Couple last night and so far I’m enjoying it. I haven’t read a book by this author in years, but it seems like a perfect summer read.

what i have recently added to my tbr

R. S. Grey writes awesome romantic comedies. I look forward to every one of her books.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype.

I usually try to stay away from hyped books for fear that they will be really disappointing. But sometimes I just can’t resist the temptation, and thankfully all of these books lived up to the hype.

HYPED BOOKS I LOVED

    

    

 

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

I loved The Simple Wild so much more than I imagined I would. One of my favorite books this year.

Desperate Girls took a little while for me to get into it (I picked it up and started it over 3 times), but once I pushed through the beginning, I ended up loving it.

The Last Mrs. Parrish was messed up. I won’t give anything away, but it was definitely a good suspense, especially on audio.

 

 what i’m currently reading

  

Yes, I’m still reading Us Against You. I’m now halfway through and it’s wonderful. Just taking my time.

I’m buddy reading A Spark of Light with Tina from Reading Between the Pages. It’s been years since I’ve read a Jodi Picoult book. I kinda got burnt out on her stuff, but so far this one is really good (and super controversial…as is most of her books).

 

what i have recently added to my tbr

When my friend Stephanie at Stephanie’s Book Reviews almost gives a book 5 stars (because she never does that) – I know it’s worth getting a copy. I’m excited to read this one!
