WWW Wednesday | Hello world I am half-dead*

*I am really tired and my head is a mess right now so if this post is a mess, I’m sorry. The past two days have been really stressful…

In this weekly meme which is hosted by Taking on A World of Words I talk about what I am reading this week. WWW Wednesday consists of three questions:

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


What I am currently reading

Yes I am still reading The Beauty of Darkness, and I am going super slow. Not because I am not enjoying it, but I have barely any time to listen to the audiobook.

I quite enjoy Northanger Abby by Jane Austen! Jane Austen keeps surprising me with great books 🙂 Also, I am about halfway through but there still hasn’t been anything spooky or supernatural, but is labeled as paranormal, so I don’t know when that’s going to happen.

What I recently finished reading


You can read my review of this book here. I have actually been in contact with the writer about my review, so that’s new and kinda exciting. Also I’ve learned that the book is actually written for 12-15 year olds, and that is probably one of the reason why I didn’t like the book that much.







What I am going to read next

Look at that pretty cover of Hold Back The Stars by Katie Khan! I will start reading this very soon.

The blurb looks so interesting:

Carys and Max have ninety minutes of air left.

Unless they can come up with a good idea, they’re going to die in about an hour and a half.

But it doesn’t need to end like this.

Adrift in space, Carys and Max can’t help but look down at the world they left behind; a well-oiled, efficient machine that they can no longer call home. Perhaps they might have done things differently if they’d known what was going to happen…

Katie Khan’s debut novel is an epic love story that will leave you breathless. Set in a future world that bans relationships before a certain age, Hold Back the Stars begs the question: How hard would you fight for the chance at love?

Someone else’s summer by Rachel Bateman reminds me of Morgan Matson’s Since You’ve Been Gone, so that’s why it wanted to give it a go.

Anna’s always idolized her older sister, Storm. So when Storm dies in a tragic car accident on the night of her high school graduation, Anna is completely lost and her family is torn apart. That is, until she finds Storm’s summer bucket list and decides to honor her sister by having the best summer ever—which includes taking an epic road trip to the coast from her sleepy Iowa town. Setting out to do everything on Storm’s list along with her sisters best friend Cameron—the boy next door—who knew that Storm’s dream summer would eventually lead to Anna’s own self-discovery?

Both books are requested from Netgalley.

  1. I will be reading Illuminae and Percy Jackson this week and next week if I don’t finish them this week. I hope that I get my Hogwarts House Cup TBR done soon so that I can start Northanger Abbey soon and My Lady Jane.

    1. I’ve never read Percy Jackson but I’ve heard so much about it, I’m really curious to see what you think of it! I hope you get to finish your tbr 🙂

      1. Thank you, I hope so too. I have read Percy Jackson in Dutch first, but I love reading the originals, so I bought them in English when they were really on sale.


      2. You guys have to read Percy Jackson. It’s amazing. Especially the Heroes of Olympus series. But idk, if you would like it Lia, I read Percy Jackson when I was in 8th grade and my 14 year old brain loved it. 😊

      3. I feel like I missed out on all the books you “had” to read when you were younger, I read Harry Potter when I was 17 and never read Percy Jackson… I will read it, one day, but there are so many books on my tbr that it might take a while…

      4. I still love Percy Jackson so much. But I has been years since I have read them. So in order to understand Heroes of Olympus, I have to re-read Percy Jackson, which I will be doing in English this time.
