WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking on a World of Words

The Three Ws are:

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

What are you currently reading?

forever innocentForever Innocent by Deanna Roy

“Our baby died on prom night, and nothing was ever the same again.”

Corabelle doesn’t feel like any of the other college girls. On what should have been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never returned.

Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters. The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction.

When Gavin shows up in her astronomy class four years later, he is hell-bent on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she can’t resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love completely. And once again, she’ll lose the only person who always believed she was innocent.

I’m still not decided about how I feel about this. Some parts are super good but then other parts are really bad and very cliche.

What did you recently finish reading?

that summerThat Summer by Sarah Dessen

The more things change…

As far as Haven is concerned, there’s just too much going on.

Everything is changing, and she’s not sure where she fits in.

Then her sister’s old boyfriend shows up, sparking memories of the summer when they were all happy and everything was perfect…

But along the way, Haven realizes that sometimes change is a good thing.

Probably not a good sign that I don’t remember much of this right?


summer days

Summer Days and Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins

Maybe it’s the long, lazy days, or maybe it’s the heat making everyone a little bit crazy. Whatever the reason, summer is the perfect time for love to bloom. Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories, written by twelve bestselling young adult writers and edited by the international bestselling author Stephanie Perkins, will have you dreaming of sunset strolls by the lake. So set out your beach chair and grab your sunglasses. You have twelve reasons this summer to soak up the sun and fall in love.

Featuring stories by Leigh Bardugo, Francesca Lia Block, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Brandy Colbert, Tim Federle, Lev Grossman, Nina LaCour, Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Roth, Jon Skovron, and Jennifer E. Smith.

This was kind of a let down. Out of the 12 different stories I think I enjoyed maybe 4 of them? But also part of me hopes that Stephanie Perkins makes another anthology like this… maybe an autumn themed one?

What do you think you’ll read next?

after the rainAfter The Rain by Renee Carlino

I’m very desperately hoping this arrives in the mail later today. Maybe tomorrow. I’ve been dying to read another book by Carlino so I hope this one doesn’t disappoint!

 

What are you reading this week? Have you read any of these books? Let me know!

    Sorry to hear that Summer Days and Summer Nights was a bit of a disappointment because a collection of stories like this is a great idea. As you say, hopefully she’ll put together another anthology which will be better. Perhaps Christmas themed? There always seem to be loads of short romance novels released for Christmas, so why not short stories?

      She actually does have a Christmas themed anthology 🙂 It’s called “My True Love Gave To Me” and it was 10x better than Summer Days. I think it was just the choice of authors that were included in this collection that made me not like it as much?

    I’m sorry the anthology let you down. I tend to have a similar experience with short story collections and I avoid them for the most part. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
