Hello, friends! How have you been doing lately? It’s time for another WWW Wednesday!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam@Taking on a World of Words.
To participate, just answer the three questions below and link back to her or put the link to your post in the comment section of her blog so that others can look at your answers!
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Now, here are my 3Ws…
Always by Sarah Jio. As I’m aiming to read at least 2 romance/women’s fiction this month, I picked up this book and I’m currently on page 102.
Kailey, the heroine who will soon marry her perfect fiance, unexpectedly bump into her old flame, Cade, outside the restaurant and finds that Cade had fallen into a state of homelessness and is devastated by his downfall. Although Kailey thinks she loves her fiance, Ryan, and she knows she’ll marry him, but her strong urge to save him from his distress starts to occupy her mind.
Now, this book hasn’t gripped me as much so far, but there are scenes that I found pretty compelling and that squeezed my heart. The issue of homelessness and discrimination are also interwoven, I think it gives some depth to this book and hopefully, this doesn’t end up just a saccharine, fluffy romance book. I have to say, some scenes are overly sugary for my liking, and I don’t appreciate that much. Nevertheless, for the sake of the social element, I haven’t thrown this book across the room yet lol I’m kind of curious to see how the story goes down from now.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. I thought it would take me at least two weeks to finish this Classic, but this read surprisingly fast and gripping and I literally devoured this book. I enjoyed every single moment while I was reading this and I just couldn’t put it down.
You can read my thoughts at the link below.
As I told you in my Goodreads Monday post, I’m still on a biiiiig Classic kick but I don’t feel like tackling a massive book right now. So, I think I will pick up Anne of Green Gables for my ‘Remember November (hosted by Kathy@Books & Munches)’ challenge.
In addition to that, in a bid to complete my another challenge, ‘read at least 2 romance/Women’s fiction,’ I have these two books in mind at the moment.
Paradise is a personal recommendation from my dear friend, Nel@Reactionary Tales and she says this book is really good and the synopsis sounds really delicious and enticing.
On the other hand, Sarah Jio’s writing kind of makes me want to pick up Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler which I bought last October but haven’t read yet (oh, my, it’s been a year already!!), and I think I need to read this by the end of this year (hopefully).
So basically, as for contemporary romance/women’s fiction, it’s toss-up between these two books. I have yet to decide which one I will pick up after Always, but we’ll see!
That’s it for today.
