It’s time for another WWW Wednesday!
WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking On a World of Words. It’s a meme that takes place every Wednesday, where the posters discuss 3 Ws:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
What I’m currently reading:
I missed last week’s WWW post because I haven’t been reading a lot lately, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by all the things I want to do to catch up on my bookish goals, and I was feeling really demotivated, to be honest! I started to write this post last week and realized I didn’t even have the energy to post an update. (And then I forgot to schedule it for Wednesday, so it’s an extra day late lol)
I’m feeling a lot better this week, though! I started a new mental health medication about a week and a half ago, and I think a lot of my demotivation last week was stemming from side effects and generally not feeling very well, but I think I’m ready to get back into the swing of things.
I definitely have more current reads than I would like to at the moment, but I’m not yet interested in setting any of these aside for later because I’m genuinely enjoying them all. I thought for a long time that my problem was too many current reads, but maybe a bigger element is that I’m putting too much pressure on myself to finish books quickly instead of just recognizing that sometimes, a book is going to sit on my currently-reading stack for a little while, and that’s okay! I’ll get there when I get there.

What I recently finished:
I didn’t do a whole lot of reading over the past two weeks, between the new meds, a LOT of time playing video games with my spouse and kiddo, and too much social media. 😅
- gallant // v.e. schwab
I loved this even more than I expected to.
- dead silence // s.a. barnes
This was one of my most anticipated 2022 releases, and I’m so glad I finally got over my own apprehension about my self-built hype for it and dove back in, because it did NOT disappoint!
- damaged goods // talia hibbert
A re-read I enjoyed SO much. ♥
- fix her up // tessa bailey (DNF)
This was my first attempt at a Tessa Bailey book, and sadly, I DNFed it around the halfway mark because I couldn’t stand the hero.
- the taking of jake livingston // ryan douglass (DNF)
Another DNF. The writing in this was sadly just… not enjoyable at all.
What I’ll read next:
My only real goal for the coming week is to work on current reads enough to start a few buddy reads I’m looking forward to!
What are you reading right now, or what did you recently finish? Let me know in the comments!
