WWW Wednesday #1

Happy Wednesday, everybody! Between the unveiling of iPhone X, the “Hand in Hand” benefit/telethon, and several highly anticipated book releases the internet was ablaze yesterday.

Did anyone watch/participate in any of these events? Did anyone add some new books to their collections? Did you:

If you did, please let me know! I’m needing help determining my future book purchases!

On a different note, today’s post is devoted to a new-to-me book meme known as WWW Wednesday!

What it’s about? WWW Wednesday is a meme currently hosted by Sam @TakingOnAWorldOfWords that requires you to answer the three W’s:

1) What are you currently reading?

2) What did you recently finish reading?

3) What do you think you’ll read next?


1) Lost Boy by Christina Henry

So I’m only a few chapters into this villain-redeeming narrative, but I am captivated! As a girl who grew up adoring Peter Pan, it’s fascinating reading about a world where he’s painted as the evildoer. I can’t wait to see how the story plays out.

2) Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

I just started this yesterday and I want to kick myself for not reading it sooner — and for starting it during the workweek!! This is one of those books that I can tell is going to have serious staying power and I cannot wait to see how it comes together.


1) Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

This Sci-Fi thriller hit the shelves yesterday and definitely deserves to be added to your TBR! Check out my full review here!

2) My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

I wrapped up my weekend with this quick contemporary that left me feeling torn. On the one hand I enjoyed that it took some new twists atypical of the genre, but on the other it didn’t really make me feel anything…at all. Except for George — the precocious 4-year-old that stole my heart. Stay tuned for my future review.


1) 13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough

“I was dead for 13 minutes. I don’t remember how I ended up in the icy water but I do know this – it wasn’t an accident and I wasn’t suicidal.” That’s both the first two lines from the book jacket and the only criteria I needed to request this from NetGalley!

2) Final Girls by Riley Sager

Clearly I’m getting ready for October with all these psychological thrillers. Final Girls centers on the lone survivor of a decade-old killing spree who’s life soon becomes entangled with two fellow “final girls.” There’s a lot of mixed reviews out there for this one so I’m intrigued to see where I stand.

That’s it for my first ever WWW Wednesday. Hope this was fun for y’all and let me know what you think of my picks! And as always, happy reading!

    Oh man, I just finished listening to the audio book of Lost Boy. I’m coming from the “I hate Peter Pan” camp when it comes to that story. However, I loved that book. It was just so well done and captivating. I hope you enjoy the rest of it!

    Happy Reading!

    I keep hearing about ‘Lost Boy’ and I really need to read it! I enjoy well-known, much-loved classics retold through the eyes of another person, more so when that person is a character we traditionally see as a villain. I guess every story has two sides! I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts 🙂

      Aw you’re so kind! I hope you enjoy Nyxia when you get to it and I’ll keep you posted on Lost Boy!! It’s a struggle every time I go to read because Lost Boy and Dark Matter are equally appealing! #BookNerdProblems

    Ohh I’ve been meaning to read Dark Matter and Nyxia is next on my list. I’ve also had My Life Next Door on my TBR forever. I actually read a few chapters a while ago, but it just wasn’t holding my interest that much so I stopped. I put it back to my TBR hoping to read it, but up to now I still haven’t… I’m curious to read what you thought about it.

    Anyway here’s my WWW Wednesday Post – https://sincerelykarenjo.wordpress.com/2017/09/13/www-wednesdays-4/

      Dark Matter is definitely keeping my interest right now and I’ll let you know soon whether you need to get to it ASAP lol

      Nyxia — as you can see from my review — was an intriguing first installment and I saw you have it listed as one of your next up! Let me know what you think!

      And I’m still unclear how I feel about MLND. I’m hoping to have it all sorted by the time my review comes around! =D
