WWW Wednesday / August 2nd

new blog title1

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme that was previously hosted by Should Be Reading and is now hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

To play along you just had to answer the following three questions:

What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

The Hollow Girl was sent to me on Netgalley. If you follow me on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter – pretty much anything then you know how much this book means to me right now. It’s a book set in my country!! That never happens. It tells the story of Bethan, a Welsh Romani who lives with her grandmother and will succeed her as the community’s healer/witch/badass. Full review to come closer to release date!

Queens of Geek was a book I desperately wanted to get around to after hearing it had an autistic main character. If you guys didn’t know, I was diagnosed with autism at the age of 18 so reading about it in a young adult novel was a big deal to me. This book is fun, especially if you’re a fan of all things fandom. Not only that but it’s diverse! An autistic main character with an anxiety disorder and a biracial (Chinese/Australian) bisexual main character who’s also a HUGE Youtuber! Although I didn’t love this book, I still really enjoyed it!

The Alice Network is my current read after I got sent it in exchange for an honest review. I’m only 100 pages in so far but I am absolutely loving it. I love that it switches between the two women – Charlie who trying to solve the mystery of her missing cousin in 1947 and Eve, a former spy who tells us of her life during 1915. The two women’s lives become entwined and it is making for an excellent story so far. I love historical fiction but having two very different women as the protagonists is definitely my jam.

Nyxia is hopefully my next read after being accepted for it on Netgalley. If I’m honest, I don’t know much about this book. In fact, I’ll have a look right now… Okay, it’s young adult and it’s sci-fi. It sounds perfect. It has been compared to The Hunger Games without killing but with added magic. It’s character driven, has multiple POVs (including one by a black character) and it has a lot of POC. Oh, and it’s a trilogy! I’m excited now so definitely ready to get into it!


I’m really enjoying this tag. Let me know what you’re currently reading in the comments!

The King of Bourbon Street is the first book in the NOLA Nights series. This was unlike anything I’ve read before (an adult erotica fiction) but I absolutely loved it. It was diverse, including a fat protagonist and despite being based on a dom/sub relationship, it still managed to be healthy and consensual. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

Eliza and Her Monsters  is a young-adult contemporary that tells the story of Eliza, a teenage girl with a perfectly normal every day life but online, she is famous as the creator of an online web comic series. This book deals with internet life vs real life, depression and social anxiety. It was everything I want in a book. An immediate five stars for me.

When Dimple Met Rishi is my main current read that I am more than halfway through. I’m really enjoying it. It’s really interesting to read about Indian culture and from the perspective of two characters who come from the same background but have very different views. Excited to see how it ends!

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is my second current read that I am only around 30% finished with despite attempting to read it for the past few days. I don’t know if it’s because I’m not in the mood for historical fiction or because it’s just not my type of book but I’m slumping really hard with reading it. I’m going to keep going though, purely for the characters of Percy and Felicity.

The Tiger’s Watch is the most recent book I got from Netgalley and as I am a huge fan of Julia and her previous works, I’m so excited to get into this one! I believe it has a gender-fluid protagonist(!) a slow burn romance and magic. Plus, just look at that cover.

The Alice Network was recently sent to me for review. I received an email a while back promoting this book and I just knew it was something I was guaranteed to love. It tells the story of two different women during World War II – a spy and a socialite. I’m excited to get into it and my copy has deckled edges *insert sobs*


So that is all my previous, current and future reads! Have you read any of them? And what are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments!
Lots of love,
