WWW Wednesday for week of October 4, 2017


The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam of “Taking on a World of Words”! The meme consists of 3 W questions that we are supposed to answer for each WWW Wednesday. The questions are:

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


Currently Reading: 

Last week I mentioned that I picked “Fablehaven” up to read randomly at the library, so I got started with it. I am not that far into the book at the time of this writing, but I would say that I can tell this is going to be one of those interestingly fun reads. It already has elements that I enjoy, like weird family members that are trying to keep secrets and creatures that no one can really explain, but think are something else. These elements suck me into a story and so far this one is definitely enjoyable considering I randomly picked it up off a shelf without knowing anything about it. I also started “Finding Home” by Garrett Leigh (one of the first times I am reading 2 books at the same time). This I got through NetGalley and finding I am getting through it rather quickly for me. I am enjoying most of the elements of the story thus far. We will have to see if that continues.

 


Recently Finished:

 I finished the first of the “Fear Street” series books that I will be reviewing for the month of October and then I finished a graphic novel that I picked up from the library as well. I had been wanting to read some of Raina Telgemeier’s works for awhile, since I kept seeing them popping up on book shelves wherever I would go. I finally saw sitting on the shelves at the same time “Smile” and “Drama” thus I plucked them both quickly from the shelves. “Smile” will be getting a review tomorrow here on the blog, so look forward to that tomorrow.


Read Next:

I recently was going through “NetGalley” and I came across this book. I decided that I would give it a read based on the cover primarily, but I also thought the description sounded like something that I would enjoy. See the synopsis and more over on NetGalley. I am finding myself wanting to read more mystery books lately. I also wanted to try for more “request” books since I feel like I am starting to get a handle on this blogging regularly thing and I wanted to go for a genre that I know that I would want to read in a reasonable amount of time. This book fits that bill and I am looking forward to starting it after I finish “Fablehaven” and possibly another “Fear Street”, we will see.


Have you read any of these in the past yourself? Ever taken your own trip down “Fear Street”? What book are you looking forward to next? Leave a comment below answering this question and if you are book blogger leave a link to your blog below so I can check you out!

      I am hoping that “The Lost Child” doesn’t suck me in too deep since there are more books in the series. Then again if it does I have a new series to read hmm.

    I love the cover of Fablehaven. Getting a Rumplestiltskin vibe from it.

    I’ve never read any Fear Street though I read quite a lot of the Goosebumps books when I was in primary school, and the Give Yourself Goosebumps books were my first introduction to choose-your-own-adventure type stories.

      “Fear Street” was Stine’s teenager series. They are similar to Goosebumps in that they have clichéd horror elements and the chapters usually end with a shock and quick resolve in the next chapter. Main difference is that they take place in one town and usually involves Fear Street in the plot, whereas Goosebumps took place anywhere they wanted.

      So far Fablehaven is more all types of fantasy and less Rumpelstiltskin.

    I don’t think I’ve ever come across any of these before, but Finding Home looks like it might be an interesting read. I can’t handle more than one book at a time usually either!
