Hello Hello! How are you?

My week has been so busy so far and since France announced lockdown and my university announced another week of “holidays” because they haven’t gotten everything figured out yet, I have been running around like a headless chicken.

NaNoWriMo has started and I haven’t gotten that far into my ongoing project yet, but I’m still making progress and I’m hoping to set aside a whole afternoon soon to have a big writing session! I’m determined to win this year, so please wish me luck!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking On A World of Words.

WWW Wednesday is based on 3 questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

One Of Us Is Lying (#1) by Karen M. McManus

One of Us is Lying (One of Us is Lying, #1)

I’m buddy reading this book with Stephen from Stephen Writes. We’ve only just started it but I am already loving it. I am getting the same vibes from this as I got from A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson and I’m in a really happy reading mood with this book because I know it’ll be good!

The Cousins by Karen M. McManus

The Cousins

I also just started this other Karen M. McManus book because this month, I’m on the blog tour organised by Dave from @The_WriteReads. I’ve not gotten that far into this one yet either, BUT, I also love this one already. It’s definitely different from the other book and is giving me more The Inheritance Games vibes, but I’m really looking forward to continuing it.

I haven’t read that many new books in November yet, I still have the ones from last week at the same point as my last check-in, so check out that post for more info about other books I’m still in the middle of!

I had a great reading streak over the weekend and was able to finish 4 books, I’m really happy about that!

Ghostly Echoes (#3 Jackaby) by William Ritter

Ghostly Echoes (Jackaby, #3)

I finished this book over the weekend with Candyce as our buddy read and we both loved it. It was amazing and there was just something a bit extra about this one that was missing from the previous two books! I’ll have my review up in a few weeks!

Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee

Dragon Pearl

Unfortunately, this one was less of a great book for me. The October BOTM for the Middle Grade Marvels books club, the other members seemed to love it but it flopped for me. I don’t know if it was the writing style or what but the characters just felt so fake and I thought that the plot needed some fine-tuning, I was left with so many questions! I’ll also have a review up soon.

Under the Lesser Moon (#1 The Marked Son) by Shelly Campbell

Under the Lesser Moon (The Marked Son, #1)

I read this book for my first-ever blog tour with Mythos & Ink, I actually read most of this in one sitting and really enjoyed it. It was a very unique book with a lot of great elements, great world-building and I am definitely going to pick up the second book in the series when it comes out. You can read my thoughts here!

Legends Rise (#3 Venators) by Devri Walls

Legends Rise (Venators #3)

And finally, on Sunday I was able to finish this marvellous book. I’ve been reading this series this year while participating in the blog tours organised by Dave from @The_WriteReads. Once I had read the first book, I knew that I was going to love this series, and it has not disappointed me yet, this book was so good, and I gush all about it in my review!

Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

Rebecca

This is the November pick for the book club that I’m in with a bunch of other blogger buddies! I’ve heard a lot about this book and I actually read a few excerpts a few years ago and they left me intrigued. I have to admit I’m a bit worried to start it, but the discussion is on Friday so I have to get my reading cap on!

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott

Five Feet Apart

And finally, I think I want to start this book this week. I am starting to read all the books I want for my thesis and this one was right at the top. Unless you couldn’t guess, I’m doing my thesis on disability and illness in literature and I’m very excited to finally get a chance to read this book. If it’s anything like The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, I’m going to need loads of tissues.

That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed this post, see you soon, stay safe,

    I also got The Cousins but I think I will read that a little later because I still have time for the blogtour.

    1. Don’t worry, you still have time, it’s only the start of the month! 🙂 The Cousins is so good so far!
