Whatcha Reading: October 2015

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! The weekly meme formerly hosted by MizB at Should be Reading and revived on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below to participate:

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

My Reading Progress

Currently Reading: Of course I still have Hausfrau and The Jane Austen Book Club on my currently reading shelf because I keep picking up other books to read instead of these. Oh the struggle. I just finished An Ember in the Ashes last night so I haven’t picked up a new book yet. I’m still processing. I think after I write a few reviews I can get moving onto the next read.

Recently Finished: Since my last www update I’ve finished another 6 books (wow! that’s a lot for me):

  • Landline, Rainbow Rowell. I love her writing style so much. Her books are a breeze to read and fun.
  • Everything, Everything, Nicola Yoon. This book was really good. The reading experience while reading this was different, in a good way. Hard to explain.
  • Just Breathe, Heather Allen. I picked this up from the Kindle library because one of my best buds has the same name. This book was missing something for me to really like it.
  • Time Between Us, Tamara Ireland Stone. I have had Every Last Word on my tbr pile for awhile now but never pick it up. I found this instead and it really surprised me. Great read.
  • Twenty Boy Summer, Sarah Ockler. I thought I would like this more but didn’t. I’ll try another Ockler novel but will have lower expectations going in.
  • An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir. The hype surrounding this novel almost ruined it for me. I really loved this book but wasn’t “oohing and ahhing” over it like others have.

Up Next/Reading Challenges:

I will be focusing on my alphabet challenge until the end of the year (only two months left!?!?!) hoping to finish on time. I challenged myself to read 52 books on my Goodreads challenge and I’m currently 4 books ahead of schedule. I think I’ll finish that challenge before this A to Z challenge.


Thanks for stopping in and perusing my bookshelves. If you want to track more of my reading, find me on Goodreads. Happy reading!

  1. I’ve just sent you a friend request on Goodreads 🙂 I don’t know how I coped before Goodreads, it’s been invaluable for keeping a record of all the recommendations I come across.
    I have Everything Everything on my TBR and keep hearing good things about it. I had mixed feelings about An Ember in the Ashes but I expect the sequel will be better now that the groundwork has been done. I look forward to your reviews!
    Here’s my WWW: https://clairehuston.wordpress.com/2015/10/21/www-wednesday-21st-october-2015/

    1. Goodreads really is a life saver. I’ve been meaning to get more organized over on it (basically get reviews done, bookshelves labelled). It will happen. Thanks for adding me, I love reading your reviews.

  2. I have read an enormous plethora of books this last month. Mostly flipping back and forth between historical romance and sci / fi . I read The Martian (Weis) which was riveting and also Saturn Run (Sandford). I am also reading Bill Bryson’s Latest a return to the Little Island. As well I have read five P and P variations… Eight historical freebies off amazon and not blogged about anything once! Oh I’m so bad!! You have been reading lots too!

  3. Glad you enjoyed Landline! I have it on my shelf but haven’t managed to get to it yet. I’m working my way through book club selections all the time. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

  4. Oh this is super cool. I will definitely try to participate next month (hopefully I remember lol)! One thing I really love about Goodreads is that it lets me have the vanity aspect of looking at all of the covers of books I’ve read without having to store tons of books in my house. I use the library a lot more thanks to Goodreads.

    1. I agree Goodreads is the best as well as the library. I’ve just recently started going to the library again. I like to borrow books before I buy them because I’m running low on storage options too.
