WWW Wednesday ~ 3.20.19

Hi everyone! Its Wednesday again! As I think you all know,  Waiting on Wednesday is brought to you by Taking on a World of Words, who revived this weekly meme for us book bloggers to use at our will. As always, the three W’s are:

What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What will you be reading next?

15728452What did I recently finish reading?
I just finished reading (literally….as in my lunch break!) The Umbrella Academy, Vol. 1: The Apocalypse Suite! Of course, I started off with the Netflix series and now I am diving into the comic book trilogy, the third of which is actually set to release this July! Little known fact about the series (at least I had no clue about it): the author, Gerard Way, is actually the frontman and co-founder of the band My Chemical Romance (get out your hair gel, nose ring, sk8 shoes, and let’s go back to the ’00s and rock out with these guys!). Once I get through volume 2 as well, I will write my thoughts on the comics so check back soon!

36337550What am I currently reading?
I have two books in progress currently. The first one I am trying so hard to get through as quick as possible because I have been stuck in it for too long, and that would be The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. I am listening to the audiobook on this and I think I might enjoy it so much more if I was reading a hard copy. I’ve heard great things about this book but ugh, it is painstaking to listen to this! 😫 Also, I am reading an ARC of Wicked Saints. I am so in love! You better believe a review of this is coming up soon!! I am seeing a lot of mixed reviews for this book coming out so far but honestly, I am really enjoying it so far. I hope that as more people read it, the ratings go up because I think…well, I really don’t want to say anything until I write up my review.

28186322What will I be reading next?
Well, as I mentioned, I am continuing on in the Umbrella Academy Suite. My next audiobook will be a group read of A Curious Beginning, which was recommended to me by a friend who knows my sense of humor. I am pretty excited to read this YA historical mystery since I recently finished up the Jackaby series. And for a physical next-up, I am moving on to an ARC of The Raven’s Tale by Cat Winters. If you haven’t heard of this one yet, its actually a story of a young Edgar Allen Poe meeting his Muse. The synopsis doesn’t give too much more detail than that, but still, its another book I am really looking forward to checking out!

If you participate in this on your blog, drop me a link in the comments below! Or just answer any or all of the questions and let me know what book your nose is in because I always like to know what people are reading. I look forward to hearing all the deets!

  1. I didn’t even know Umbrella Academy was something other than a Netflix series now that I know Gerard Way wrote it, I think I’ll need to read it lol. Also, I’m looking forward to your review for Wicked Saints! I’m excited for that book and I’ll be curious about A Curious Beginning so I’ll keep an eye out for your reaction to that one too! ❤

  2. I’ve heard so many good things about Umbrella Academy, and my completionist self will probably have to read the comics in addition to watching the show – so I’m looking forward to seeing what you think!

    personally I loved 7 1/2 Deaths, but it’s pretty convoluted and fairly long so I definitely don’t think I’d be able to keep up with the audiobook. hoping your next few reads are awesome 💕
