Welcome to another WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. To participate, just answer the following three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
So, let’s begin!
I’m currently reading…
The Miseducation of Cameron Post, by Emily M. Danforth
The movie adaptation of this comes out August 3rd! I thought it would be nice to get a review up before the movie comes out. Always read the book before you watch the movie!
Before I Go to Sleep, by S. J. Watson
This is a thriller about a woman who is unable to form new long-term memories and loses her memory each night as she sleeps. I should have anticipated this problem with the premise, but this book feel mind-numbingly repetitive. A full review should be up soon, but the short version is that I don’t recommend it.
Beside A Burning Sea, by John Shors
I’m admittedly not very far into this historical fiction novel, but it’s really not grabbing me so far. It doesn’t help that between this and Before I Go to Sleep, I’ve been hit with two lackluster novels at once. This will probably be the first one I’ve DNF’ed in months. I have too many exciting books waiting on the shelves.
I recently finished reading…
Eliza Hamilton: The Extraordinary Life and Times of the Wife of Alexander Hamilton, by Tilar J. Mazzeo
I received an ARC of this through NetGalley and it was stunning. A full review will be up when the book comes out in September.
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating, by Christina Lauren
Another ARC I received which is coming out in September. This was a romance novel that kind of oscillates between cutesy and steamy. Full review to come in September closer to the release date.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman
This book destroyed me and I’d do it all over again. A beautiful story and mental health, love, and loneliness, this novel is totally deserving of all the hype. A review will be up tomorrow.
The Chemist, by Stephenie Meyer
Yes, I’m a grown woman and I willingly subjected myself to Stephenie Meyer’s latest work. It went… about as well as I expected. Review to come later this week.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I’ve mostly randomized my TBR lately when it comes to books I already own, but I’ve decided I’m going to take a short break to catch up on my Book of The Month books. I received this in June and I’m dying to see what all the fuss is about.
On Burning Mirrors, by Jamie Klinger-Krebs
I recently received a copy of this courtesy of NetGalley.
“Jules Kanter is a wife, a mother and a successful journalist; but she’s completely fallen for the subject of her latest story—a talented musician/bartender named Erin. While plagued with guilt over an affair that causes her to question her sexuality, coupled with the fear of hurting everyone she loves, Jules pours her emotions into her writing. But, she never imagined her words would be discovered when she wasn’t there to explain them.”

Before I Go to Sleep dragged on forever. I really enjoyed The Miseducation of Cameron Post though. How are you liking it so far?

I’m about 1/4 of the way into Cameron Post and loving it so far. 🙂 And I agree, Before I Go to Sleep dragged on far too long. I feel like the idea could have been done fairly well in a novella rather than a full length novel; as it is, it fell super flat for me.

You’re right, a novella would have been better. The movie wasn’t that great either smh.
Love your book selection here! I loved Eleanor too, I read it months ago and still find myself thinking about her. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is also one I keep meaning to read – it looks so intriguing!
I can see your problem with Before I Go To Sleep, but I think I might actually be into the repetition, depending on how it’s done. I certainly like the premise, at any rate.
