My first ever WWW Wednesday post!

November 28, 2018

I’ve been wanting to add a new meme to my blog’s weekly schedule for a while, so I finally settled on the one I’ve been interested in: WWW Wednesday! WWW is hosted by Taking On a World of Words. It’s a meme that takes place every Wednesday, where the posters discuss 3 Ws:

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

I’m reading waaaaay too many things right now (which is the biggest reason I’m taking up this meme—hopefully it will motivate me to have fewer CRs at one time!).

1. Small Spaces — 15%
2. Hark! The Herald Angels Scream — 20%
3. The Language of Thorns — 42%
4. The Shadow of What Was Lost — 10%
5. The Faithful — 46%
6. Dear Heartbreak — 8%
7. The Gilded Wolves — 41%
8. Kingdom of Ash — 13%
9. The Sorrows — 19%
10. The Truth About Forever (reread) — 16%
As you can see, not only do I have too many current reads, but I’m not nearly far enough along in any of them, either!
My goal for the week is to finish Small Spaces, Hark! The Herald Angels Scream, The Language of Thorns, Dear Heartbreak, The Gilded Wolves, The Sorrows, and The Truth About Forever.

40870568For some reason, I’ve really been struggling with actually… you know… finishing anything lately? (In case you couldn’t tell by those 10 current reads, haha)
The only thing I’ve finished within the last week was The Wicked King, which you can read my review for here.
It was absolutely incredible. I devoured it in two sittings and immediately needed the third book! 😭

With all those current reads, I don’t plan on adding too many things to my current reads this week! The only new title I plan on picking up in the next week is The Battle of the Labyrinth, which I’m buddy reading with my friend Sylwia, and The Lights, a new f/f YA horror novella eARC I just received.

Have you read any of the titles I mentioned in this post, or are any on your TBR? Let me know in the comments!

    OMG 10 books currently reading?! I need to breathe into a paper bag for you!!!

    This is so cool, I might try this on my blog as well
    I admire the fact that you can read so many books together, I get super confused when I do so

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 28, 2018 at 5:56 pm

      You totally should, it was REALLY fun to do! I could honestly see this becoming my new favorite weekly post!
      I usually try to limit myself to less than this, but for some reason in 2018 I have been so bad about constantly letting my current read number get up to 10-15, and I actually kind of hate it!! I need to stop. I think it’s mostly because I had such a bad slump the first part of November and so I kept picking up other things hoping they would fix the slump.

        That’s nice, maybe I’ll start doing this post from next week
        Reading slumps are the worst I’ve been in one since October, I haven’t finished one single book in November and it sucks

  • Reply Shalini November 28, 2018 at 2:12 pm

    Wow… How do you read 10 books at a time. Omg omg omg… I barely read 1

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 28, 2018 at 5:56 pm

      I need to stop honestly!! I’m happiest when I have maybe 3-4 current reads so my goal for 2019 is that I’m literally just not going to allow myself to have more than maybe 5 at any given time.

      • Reply Shalini November 28, 2018 at 10:19 pm

        Only one expression… 5??😳😳😳😳

        • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 1, 2018 at 9:13 am

          Haha yep! It gives me room to do buddy reads alongside my regular reading! Plus I always like to have at least one ebook and one physical book at the same time ☺️

          • Shalini December 1, 2018 at 9:46 am

            Wow😮😮

  • Reply Kacey Lewis November 28, 2018 at 2:22 pm

    I’m almost done with Kingdom of Ash. It feels like I’ve been reading it for foreverrrrr. I’m hoping to finish it this weekend. *hoping* ahahah. Good luck with your pile!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 28, 2018 at 5:57 pm

      Oooooh good luck! And thank you! I literally read the first 150pg of KoA a couple weeks ago and haven’t picked it up since because my brain is just like “NO, WE ARE *NOT READY*” hahaha

      • Reply Kacey Lewis November 28, 2018 at 6:38 pm

        I think that’s what my brain is also telling me. Because I’ve either started/finished other books instead of just finishing KoA,hah!

    Welcome to WWW Wednesday! Wow! You really are reading a lot at the moment. I hope this meme helps you get everything sorted out. 🙂

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 28, 2018 at 5:57 pm

      Thank you! I really hope so, too. I didn’t realize I was reading so many things until I did this post. :/

  • Reply What’s My Page Again? November 28, 2018 at 2:50 pm

    I read The Truth About Forever back when I was in middle school and I remember really liking it and being a favorite. I need to do a re-read of it!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 28, 2018 at 5:57 pm

      It’s so good! It was one of my favorites as a kid and I read it soooo many times, but this is my first reread in years and I’m loving it all over again.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 28, 2018 at 5:58 pm

      Oh noooooo 🙁 I’m so sorry you lost your copy, that’s so sad. I hate losing books!

  • Reply ChrissiReads November 28, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    Oh my goodness. 10 at once. You legend!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 28, 2018 at 5:58 pm

      Hahaha thank you! I’m hoping next week’s update will be, like, FIVE at the most!

  • Reply MetalPhantasmReads November 28, 2018 at 6:42 pm

    Holy crap girl that’s a lot of currently reading! I can’t wait to see your thoughts on The Gilded Wolves; I’m dying to read it so badly!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 1, 2018 at 9:10 am

      Haha it’s too many! I’ve got it down to 9 right now, I started a new one but have finished 2. I’m hoping to get it down to 5-6 by next Wednesday’s update. 🙂 and TGW has been pretty good so far! It’s one of the ones I’m hoping to finish today.

  • Reply Sam November 28, 2018 at 7:55 pm

    Good luck trying to finish some books! You’ve got a crazy big pile. How do you decide which one to pick up? Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 1, 2018 at 9:11 am

      Thank you! I usually base it either off of my mood or what needs to be reviewed soonest if they are review copies 🙂

  • Reply Rachel @ Typed Truths November 28, 2018 at 8:36 pm

    i hope you adore small spaces! and wow, so glad to hear you adored the wicked king. i wasn’t the biggest fan of the cruel prince (i know, i weep) but i’m hoping the sequel is going to surprise me

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 1, 2018 at 9:12 am

      Thank you! I was listening to the audiobook of Small Spaces and honestly not totally loving the narrator so I’ve decided to switch to the physical copy ☺️ I think I’ll like it better that way. I hope you like TWK better than TCP! 💖

  • Reply silverbuttonbooks November 28, 2018 at 9:19 pm

    Welcome to WWW! This weekly post always helps me star organized and when I started someone told me they called it their “Goodreads with intention.” I love almost all of your currently reading so I totally understand how you got to 10. Been there! Small Spaces is amazing though – finish that one for sure. Here is my WWW: https://silverbuttonbooks.com/2018/11/28/www-wednesday-november-28-2018/

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 3, 2018 at 6:47 pm

      Thank you so much! I love that term, that sounds perfect. 🙂 You know what, I just finished one book and was trying to decide which current read I should try to finish next, and I think your comment just made my decision for me – Small Spaces it is! Thank you! <3

  • Reply Marie November 29, 2018 at 2:35 am

    HOW are you reading so many books at the same time, I admire that so much haha. I hope you’re enjoying The Gilded Wolves, I can’t wait to read that one! 😀

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 1, 2018 at 9:15 am

      Hahaha thank you! I honestly don’t know but the funny thing is that I’m always so impressed by people who can read just one book at a time, I genuinely wish my attention span would allow that because then maybe it would be easier for me to review them right away!

  • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches November 29, 2018 at 4:53 am

    Ooh, you’re a good chunk into The Gilded Wolves already! Liking it so far?
    [Not commenting on KoA but.. just.. tissues, okay?]
    I’m hoping to pick up The Language of Thorns next month but we’ll seeeeee. I’m so allowed to pokelaugh you if I manage to start AND finish it before you finish it, just saying. 😛

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 1, 2018 at 9:22 am

      It’s alright! I love the characters but the world building is a little confusing? I’m hoping to finish it today and one of my buddy read partners said the ending is the best part so I’m pretty excited!
      I finished TLoT, so HA. 😂 it was one of my unhaul challenge picks and I was NOT unhauling that beauty so I finished it two nights ago. SO GOOD.

      • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches December 2, 2018 at 1:25 am

        Hm.. Well, we’ll see! If the world-building’s confusing, I might have to make sure I don’t pick it up after reading another fantasy or I’ll doom myself.. 😂
        HAHAH. Well, at least that unhaul challenge works! 😂

        • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 2, 2018 at 8:21 pm

          So I’m at 75% now and it got WAY BETTER. It’s still a liiiittle confusing but the banter is just so fun and I am in love with literally all of the main characters. So I think/hope you’ll like it 😀

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches December 3, 2018 at 5:46 am

            Whoooop! I’m really looking forward to it. Although I’m currently battling a case of “I should read that book, but also that book. Oh, wait! that one!” and it just won’t stop. :’)

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 3, 2018 at 6:35 pm

            I know this feeling so well right now. 😂 So my solution so far has mainly been to look at my current reads and say, “But I’m ___ far into this one, so I HAVE to finish it before picking up THAT!” and repeating.

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches December 4, 2018 at 1:41 am

            That’s the way to go! Especially with all the current reads you got going on, haha. 😛 I only have two and.. I keep reading on my Kindle even though – this ONE time – the ARC is the physical copy. -_- Stupid brain.

  • Reply tasya @ the literary huntress November 29, 2018 at 10:09 am

    10 books? I can’t even imagine how you managed to juggle between all of them xD I love the Truth About Forever, but I think you should finish Language of Thorns first since it is a collection of short stories and you’re pretty far along with it 😀

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 1, 2018 at 9:23 am

      I don’t do a very good job of it, sadly 😂 and thanks! I actually managed to finish TLOT a couple of nights ago and it was wonderful!!

    DESTINY OH MY GOSH! I can see why you needed to take this meme up, lol.

  • Reply Kelly Brigid November 29, 2018 at 10:22 pm

    I aspire to be able to read that many books at once. I lose track of where I’m at when I read more than two books. LOL!
