WWW Wednesday – July 8th 2020

Another week, another Wednesday! The days seem to slip by and trip over each other at the moment, and after a hard-hit depression week last week, I’m doing my best to get back on track. I’ve been reading a lot but sleeping more, while putting any additional energy into trying to persuade my husband that we absolutely, definitely, need a cat. Still working on that last one.

There’s been a lot of comfort reading happening since the end of June and the two readathons. I’ve had a bit of a gap in my schedule, and so I’ve been able to really focus on pleasure / relaxation reading, with my next scheduled blog tour not for a week or so. It’s been really nice actually, just to binge read, especially of an evening, when everyone else is asleep, and I’m just alone, with the darkness outside, and my book. It’s a beautiful time.

I’ve read the entire A Court of Thorns and Roses series during the June readathons, and despite it having been so recent, I’ve started reading them again. There’s something special to be found in the comforts of a healthy, respectful relationship being represented, especially when the world seems so oppressive.

As always, WWW Wednesday is about three questions:

  • What have you recently finished reading?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What will you be reading next?

I don’t manage to do this every week but do so when I can because it’s just so much fun.

What have you recently finished reading?
I’ve just finished reading the Court of Thorns and Roses series, again. I only read them a few weeks ago, but needed the comfort read factor that I’ve found in them. The positive role models that can be found in there, and healthy relationships, are especially soothing when the world seems to be imploding around you. Now just to wait for January very impatiently….

What are you currently reading?
As normal, I’m reading multiple books at the same time – it’s just the way I roll. But today I’m focusing my energy on Neon, a crime fiction novel I’ll be taking part in the blog tour for in the next couple of weeks. It’s fast paced, and a real page turner, perfect to read while I’m supervising my son doing any school work that doesn’t need my input!

What will you be reading next?
I have a rather long list of books on NetGalley that need attacking. That was the handshake I made with my brain when I reread A Court of Thorns and Roses; read the series, then get that statistic up! Some of the books I have for review aren’t due to release until 2021 so I’ve been putting it off, but I think it’s about time I clear the board a little.

A fairly brief post this week – for once I don’t have much to say about these questions! And normally I can talk about nothing; I’m doing it right now. Hopefully you’re all enjoying your books today, and don’t forget to let me know of anything you recommend, or would like to see here in the comments.

  1. I while back (as “while as you can get as I’ve only started blogging maybe 3 months ago haha) I almost burned out because I felt like I NEEDED to stick to a rigid reading schedule and with a brand new large client at work, I was already burning out at work only to come home and feel the need to force myself to read. I’ve since stopped and enjoyed reading a lot more, though, my reading speed is now suffering for it. No matter, health first right? Hopefully, the rest of July spells good things for you!
