Hello everyone and welcome back to readlogy’s new post! I hope everyone having a good day ahead! Today’s post features WWW Wednesday, a book meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words and formerly hosted by A Daily Rhythm. So, what is WWW Wednesday? Every Wednesday, we post our weekly reading update. The three Ws on WWW Wednesday stand for:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finished reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Without further ado, let’s get started!
⋆ Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo ⋆
I’m finally reading it! I’m 50% done with the book and I understand where the hype comes from. I thought this book would be like those “serious fantasy only” book, but there are some scenes that I found really funny it reminds me that these characters are still teenagers under 20. Because of amount of contents I see from Twitter and Tumblr, I thought I’d fall for Kaz—he fits all my fictional men type, but Wylan van Eck stole my heart.
(proof that Wylan stole my heart)
⋆ Sadie by Courtney Summers ⋆
Sadie is this week’s group read with Not that Bookclub Bookclub, thank you Sunny for suggesting this book for us! I’ve been wanting to read Sadie for a while but I keep putting this book aside. I just started listening to it this morning so I haven’t really shaped my opinion about it. However, the audiobook is so good and I love the way the narratives (yes, plural) read this story for us. As I write this post, I’m currently listening to it and hopefully I can finish Sadie today or tomorrow!
⋆ Filosofi Teras by Henry Manampiring ⋆
Filosofi Teras is self help book, written by Indonesian author in Bahasa Indonesia. I was having trouble purchasing this book but I think the wait is worth it. This book introduces us about Stoicism and how it applies in our daily life. Filosofi Teras is a very light reading (despite its name). There are a lot of messages, suggestions and motivations that we all can take here. Honestly, I’m not a fan of non-fiction book but I kinda needed a how to be an adult self help book, and I’m so glad this book exists! There are few sentences that made me goes, “Oh, that explains everything.”
⋆ Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi ⋆
Well, I have a mixed feeling about Children of Blood and Bone. This book has been mentioned three times now and I promise I’ll stop bringing this book up. You can read my review about Children of Blood and Bone here.
⋆ Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds ⋆
This book… THIS BOOK! I can’t explain how good this book is. Yes, the synopsis seems like this is just another young adult romance, but no! This book is about navigating your relationship with your friends, family and of course, significant other. This book tells you that you can save anyone without superpower.

⋆ The Tyrant’s Tomb by Rick Riordan ⋆
Okay, I’m both excited and scared about this fourth installment of Trials of Apollo. Rick Riordan has been tweeting excerpts and instead of making me excited, he scared me. I don’t think I’ll be ready for what’ll happen in the first few chapters of the book.
Though, I’ll read The Tyrant’s Tomb because I want to support Rick Riordan with all my heart.
⋆ The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee ⋆
Listen!!! I love Percy, Monty and Felicity equally. I’ve been avoiding this book because how expensive the hardcover is. I really, really want to hold this book in my arm, because I know I would love The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy. I’ll make sure to purchase the book once I get my salary this month.
⋆ The Hating Game by Sally Thorne ⋆
The book arrived at my door earlier this month and I’ve been wanting to read this for a while. If my BR schedule fits and I don’t have a lot of works to do, I’ll read The Hating Game before September ends. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book, so, let’s see if those are all true.
What about you? Do you have any TBR for this month? What book are you currently reading? Let me know in the comment below and let’s have a talk! See you later!
