Happy Hump Day Readers!
I hope your week is going by swimmingly. Mine has been great. I’ve been off work since Friday, and today is my first day back, so I’m kind of dreading all the catchup inherent, but know that I do have to do it.
Hopefully there won’t be too much stress on my shoulders. I’ll definitely be taking my time with things so I don’t burn out. Anywho, back to the post at hand.
Every Wednesday I participate in a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Miranda doesn’t want to be different. On Gale, being different can get you killed. When her seizures began, Miranda tried to keep her abnormality secret. But then the visions started—ominous hallucinations of strange lights in the sky, an otherworldly monster with wings like a dragon, and a girl who appeared from the clouds like a bolt of lightning. Despite the ever-present threat of the Watch, Miranda is determined to find out what the visions mean. Little does she know that the answers might lead her to freedom…
Opinion so far:
I’ve got two days to kill before my next buddy read starts, so this is a good time to get through a couple novellas in the meantime since I usually take a bit longer on full-length books.
I’m currently two-thirds of the way through this novella, and I’m really enjoying it. The premise is simple and very entertaining with some great elements of fantasy woven into it.
Stay tuned for my review!
The Wild Cards universe has been thrilling readers for over 25 years. In Carrie Vaughn’s “The Thing about Growing Up in Jokertown,” a group of teenage jokers yearn to explore outside the confines of their strange little neighborhood and get a real taste of the Big Apple.
Spectacular, my mind was blown!
I read this as a way to get ready for my supervillain buddy read with Misty’s Book Space and absolutely loved this short story. Best of all, it’s free!
I highly recommend this story to anyone who likes the theme of superheroes.

Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
I’m hoping to finish Gale with enough time to read Voltage, another novella that I purchased not too long ago in an ebook haul. It looks superpowered, so you know I’m game.
After that it’s my buddy read of Please Don’t Tell My Parents I’m a Super Villain with Misty’s Book Space. My brief read of the first page preview pretty much sealed the deal. This one’s gonna be great, I just know it!
Last but not least is another Animorphs adventure with Jake at the helm. Cool!
I’m really excited about each and every one of these reads, so wish me luck!
That’s a Wrap!
Okay folks, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.

Gale sounds great. Good luck getting back to work today.
Thanks, I’m having fun with the book!
Work is… eh, work.
Looking forward to our buddy read.
Sorry we had to wait I have kind of fallen a little bit behind.
No need to explain. I had some perfect short reads to tide me over.
Good I’m glad!!
Depending on whether I can finish one more short novella I may be a smidge late starting our read, but with the long weekend I plan on blazing through.
I’m hoping I can finish it within the weekend.
Yeah, we can do this!
