WWW Wednesday #4

WWW Wednesday is a weekly MEME hosted by Taking on a World of Words answering the following questions:

1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

My head is not on straight, and I totally forgot about my WWW post, so apparently you’re getting two posts today!

Currently reading:

When You Trap a Tiger by Tae Keller
I’m about 20% into this and I’m still not sure what I would say if I were to write a synopsis for this book. Keller’s writing is superb though, and I do hope she eventually branches out into other age ranges.

The Mahabharata: A Modern Retelling by Carole Satyamurti
I was not planning to reread this this month, or this year, or in the next couple of years really, because this is a chunker and not exactly easy/light reading, but then I started rereading The Kite Runner and for whatever reason it just really made me want to pick this up. So here we are, I’m about 10% in and I’m still getting the names mixed up, but I’m enjoying the journey nonetheless.

Sailor Moon Eternal Edition Volume 3 by Naoko Takeuchi
I seriously think this is one of those cases where the anime is significantly better than the manga. I’m also doing this series a disservice by rereading it at the same time I’m rereading Yona of the Dawn which is a much better shoujo fantasy but hey, I bought all the Eternal Editions so now I’m going to read them!

Recently Finished

Pippa Park Raises Her Game by Erin Yun
This was so sticking cute and I actually posted my review of it today (click the title link to check it out). I’m so happy to have found a middle grade author that I really enjoy and I’ll definitely be checking out Yun’s future novels.

Lovesick Ellie Volume 5 by Fujimomo
I’m on a manga kick right now. Once a year I have this really strong urge to just binge all the manga, but over the past couple of years I’ve tampered this down in order to drag out my favourite series, and made an attempt to read manga more spaced out over the year. This year I’m giving in because it’s stupid not to, and I really want to read for me this year. This was actually my least favourite volume of Lovesick Ellie so far because a character was introduced for what seemed like the sole purpose of shaking up Ellie and Ohmi’s relationship. I’m pleased with how the matter was resolved though, and Volume 6 is great so far.

Yona of the Dawn Volume 5 by Mizuho Kusanagi
I said I’d take things slow and aim to drag this series out for a while, but then this volume came around and my favourite dragon made his first appearance. Clearly I have no self-control because I finished this volume in one day and now I’m obsessed with this series all over again.

Reading Next

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
I think I’m cheating by having this on my reading next because I’ll probably pick this up today. I’m ready for my next Austen novel and I know I’ll enjoy this more than Mansfield Park!

Yona of the Dawn Volume 6 by Mizuho Kusanagi
This is also probably happening today, will I read the whole thing in one sitting? Only time will tell.

Anna K by Jenny Lee
Anna K probably also shouldn’t be in this spot because technically I’m currently reading it. I decided to put it down for a bit though, because I was reading it physically but decided I much prefer the audiobook. I’ll listen to Anna K once I’ve finished Sense and Sensibility.

What are you currently reading? What have you just finished reading? What are you planning to read next? I’d love to hear it! As well as any of your thoughts on the books above. Happy reading! πŸ’—

    1. Thank you πŸ˜ŠπŸ’— and I think I’m overdue for a re-watch of Sailor Moon too πŸ˜›. Ah, Dune intimidates me! I hope you enjoy it and I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it ☺️.

    1. LOL it’s worse than that, I probably am reading 4-5 books at any given time πŸ˜…. It’s how I keep myself out of a reading slump, if I’m not feeling one book I’ll just switch to another and usually they’re all different genres so it’s a nice change of pace 😊.
