I don’t often participate in these sorts of weekly posts, but I enjoy reading other bloggers’ WWW posts and throught it’d be helpful to bring some order our of my scattered Currently Reading pile.
The weekly meme, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words, asks bloggers to list what they’re currently reading, what they’ve just finished reading, and what they’re planning to read next.

I’m balancing the usual trifecta of formats (an audiobook, an ebook, and a print copy) that makes it easy to zip through titles.
I’m really enjoying Courtney Summers’ YA suspense novel Sadie. It received a lot of hype during release last summer and was given great ratings by bloggers I follow like Destiny at Howling Libraries and Rae at Thrifty Bibliophile, so it’s been on my TBR for a while. Unfortunately, it took me a while to get to it, and even longer to get the audiobook from my library. I’m really glad I waited, though–this might be one of the best audio productions I’ve ever listened to. Not only do each of the dual narrators get their own excellent actor, but the book gets a full cast, which makes the book more enjoyable and easier to follow.
If you loved Sadie or just want to try out Summers’ writing, definitely check out her incredible short story in the third issue of FORESHADOW YA, which is online for free here. (The story has some mature content–see content warnings here.)
I’m also making my way through a deeper backlist title, Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt, in paperback. The book is on loan from a friend and I’ve neglected it for too long, so I’m hoping to finish it up this week. It’s an absolutely wonderful book, but it’s easy for me to find myself taking breaks from quieter reads like this. Hopefully my guilt/need to return it will be the push I need.
Finally, I’m just starting my eARC of The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day by Christopher Edge from Netgalley. I don’t read much MG, so I’m excited to dive in.

I recently finished the strange, character-packed Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty (three stars – review) and Oyinkan Braithwaite’s delicious My Sister, the Serial Killer (five stars – review).

On deck, I have the newest Grishaverse installment by Leigh Bardugo, King of Scars, which I’ve tried to start a couple times but keep putting aside for other things. My next audiobook will be Two Can Keep a Secret, Karen M. McManus’ follow-up to last year’s bestseller, One of Us Is Lying (four stars – review). Finally, I have an eARC waiting for Nina Moreno’s Don’t Date Rosa Santos, which looks like a delight.
