WWW Wednesday [03/05/17]

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted on Taking On A World Of Words (previously hosted on A Daily Rhythm) that asks you three very important questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you finish reading recently?
What do you think you’ll read next?

So I’ve been sitting here staring at this post for a few minutes now, trying to think of something clever to say, and I have nothing. So let’s just get to the questions, eh?

What Are You Currently Reading?

Louna, daughter of famed wedding planner Natalie Barrett, has seen every sort of wedding: on the beach, at historic mansions, in fancy hotels and clubs. Perhaps that’s why she’s cynical about happily-ever-after endings, especially since her own first love ended tragically. When Louna meets charming, happy-go-lucky serial dater Ambrose, she holds him at arm’s length. But Ambrose isn’t about to be discouraged, now that he’s met the one girl he really wants.

Sarah Dessen’s many, many fans will adore her latest, a richly satisfying, enormously entertaining story that has everything—humor, romance, and an ending both happy and imperfect, just like life itself.

I am loving this book so much. It’s such a flashback to my teen years and while I’m not as big of a fan of this one as Just Listen and Saint Anything, it is really good. It’s a great summer read.

What Did You Finish Reading Recently?

Would you travel through time to save your brother’s life? How much would you be willing to sacrifice for the good of your family?

Two brothers fight for their lives in two hospitals, one in 2007 and the other in 2017. Meanwhile their younger sisters, Kim and Violet, find themselves traveling a road where time is no longer constant. The four of them are hurtling toward an unknown future, or an unknown past. Determined to save the lives of both their brothers, Kim and Violet seek the help of a mysterious man who seems to hold the key to everything. Can they find the answers they need before time runs out?

This was a fun little read, and the time travel in this is really great. There are some things in this book that I wasn’t such a big fan of, but overall it wasn’t a bad story. I’ll have a review coming up for this one towards the end of the month.

What Do You Think You Read Next?

Winter, 1945. Four teenagers. Four secrets.

Each one born of a different homeland; each one hunted, and haunted, by tragedy, lies…and war.

As thousands of desperate refugees flock to the coast in the midst of a Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom.

Yet not all promises can be kept.

Inspired by the single greatest tragedy in maritime history, bestselling and award-winning author Ruta Sepetys (Between Shades of Gray) lifts the veil on a shockingly little-known casualty of World War II. An illuminating and life-affirming tale of heart and hope.

I got a copy of this book not too long ago, and I am super excited to get to reading it, so I’m sneaking it in before my next review copy.
