WWW Wednesday #5

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?

I’m warning you now, I’m in some strange sort of reading mood.

Currently reading:

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
I’m on the cusp of a reading slump, and the only thing I can think to do to get me out of it is to pick up Spinning Silver. This book means the world to me, and it’s my absolute favourite. I’ve read it four times but put off writing a review of it for the past two years because of how much it means to me. I think with this reread I’ll finally be ready to review it.

Yona of the Dawn Volume 1 by Mizuho Kusanagi
If you’re wondering WTF I’m doing given that I just finished volume 8, the answer is that I am now buddy rereading this with a friend of mine. I did want to properly review the entire series so I’m up for starting over. Also, I promise not to flood my blog/goodreads with reviews.

Joy at Work by Marie Kondo and Scott Sonenshein
I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’ll read any book Marie Kondo writes. I also have a love of tidying up and this book is making me want to do all the tidying!

Recently Finished

Yona of the Dawn Volumes 6, 7, & 8 by Mizuho Kusanagi
Like I mentioned above, I’m in a really weird reading mood. I feel like I want to read everything and nothing all at once. I’ll think I’m in the mood for a certain book, pick it up, start reading it, and then decide it’s not actually what I want. Have you ever experienced that? Right now the only thing that really seems to be sticking and that I’m not forcing myself with has been Yona of the Dawn. We answered some big questions in volume 8, and I really love this story, the art, and the characters.

Reading Next

Yona of the Dawn Volume 2 by Mizuho Kusanagi
Gotta keep up with that buddy read! 😉

The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar
I’ve been really looking forward to this one and its the perfect book to pick up during the Asian Readation. Plus my library hold on the audiobook came in, so I better hurry it up 😅.

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! 💗

  1. I’m almost done with Late to the Party by Kelly Quindlen, and I should be finishing Time of Our Lives too – but who knows. I already have 5 other audiobooks lined up – lol.

  2. I adore Spinning Silver as well, and also very highly recommend the audiobook of it as well; I believe the reader is a classically trained singer, and it shows,because her voices are amazing.

    1. Really? That sounds incredible! In all honesty I’ve been afraid to pick up the audiobook because I’ve read it so many times that at this point I have voices for them in my head and I doubt they’ll match up with the audiobook, but maybe now I have to check it out 😊

      1. That’s a fair point; I’d only read the book once or twice before I picked up the audiobook as my Audible freebie. Still, I think it’s worth a listen if you can borrow it from the library (and just wait til you get to the lines from “C” (not wanting to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read it yet. :p) ~ I’ve probably now listened to the audiobook 5 or 6 times in the past few years (and have it DL to my phone in case I’m stuck somewhere with nothing to do); I just don’t get tired of it.
