WWW Wednesday – December 7, 2016

www-wednesdayWWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words.
Each week we answer the following three questions:
-What have you recently finished reading?
-What are you currently reading?
-What are you reading next?


Wow! It has been a full month since my last WWW Wednesday post. I mentioned in my November wrap up that I had a not so great month of reading in terms of finishing books so I didn’t really see the point in posting WWW during November.

I’m back in the reading game now and have recently finished two awesome books!  These were both ARCs that I had received from the publisher and they both ended up being 4 star reads for me.  The Wolf Road is kind of a post apocalyptic dystopian adventure about a girl named Elka who realizes that the man who found and raised her is a killer.  Love and First Sight is the story of a high school boy named Will who was born blind and is re-entering mainstream school after attending a school for the blind.  This was my first finished book towards #readthemargin challenge.

Currently I am reading two books for the #readthemargin challenge.  Labyrinth Lost was actually the first book that I had started for the challenge but I’m kind of struggling through it.  I started None of the Above this morning and am really enjoying it so far.  It is about a girl who finds out that she is intersex.

Since the #readthemargin challenge lasts the entire month of December, I decided to put these two beauties on hold for awhile.  I was originally going to come back to them in January but I hate leaving books partially read when transitioning to a new year so I may rethink that decision at some point. Technically A Breath of Snow and Ashes would work because it was written by a woman and Gemina was half written by a woman but I may just have to stray a bit from the challenge to read those so I can start 2017 with no partially read books.

Next up on my TBR will be any one of these books that doesn’t have a green star.  Those are the two that I have either finished or am currently reading for #readthemargin.  Any votes for which of these I should read next?


What have you been reading lately?

#readthemargin Reading Challenge

picture_20161201_201557732Hey everyone! Happy December! Hard to believe it’s almost the end of 2016 already.  Today I’m coming at you with most of my December TBR.  Originally I had planned to catch up on some ARCs but  I was scrolling through my Twitter feed and this particular post stuck out to me.  I immediately clicked on the hashtag to find out more.  From what I could gather it was a reading challenge to read marginalized books.  Eventually I found the original source of the hashtag and confirmed that that was indeed the case. Read the original post here.

Basically from December 1st through January 1st, you read books written by marginalized authors (marginalized people includes groups like women, the queer community, people of color, disabled people, muslim and jewish people, etc.).  Have fun and share what you’re reading on Twitter and Instagram using #readthemargin.  I will also be doing a weekly check-in with this challenge about what I’ve been reading and any books I’ve added to my TBR that would qualify for this challenge.

I’ve been having a pretty slow couple of reading months lately so I’m not sure how many of these I will read but it’s always nice to have some options.  For this month I will just be reading books that I already own but haven’t read yet.  These are the books that I will be reading from this month.picture_20161201_201231423
