WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. To play along just answer the three questions!

What are you currently reading?

Amanda- I’m currently reading Vampire Hearts & Other Dead Things by Margie Fuston. I’m listening to the audiobook Axiom’s End by Lindsay Ellis. I’m also diligently working on clearing my NetGalley shelf, so I’m reading The Boy With Fire by Aparna Verma.

Antonia- I’m currently reading Furyborn by Claire Legrand.

What did you read most recently?

Amanda- I most recently finished Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao and I loved it so much. Please read it right now.

Antonia- I most recently read The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson.

What will you read next?

Amanda- I have a few things I could read next, but I don’t have anything specific picked out because my November TBR is huge and I don’t want to be in the middle of anything when October is over.

Antonia- Next I think I’ll read Winterkeep by Kristen Cashore.

Blogtober Day Twenty-Seven (Part Two): Antonia’s Top Ten Tuesday: Halloween Freebie



Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. For this freebie I’m going with Top Ten Villains in honor of spooky season.

Blogtober Day Twenty-Seven (Part One): Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Halloween Freebie


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana.

The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

Zodiac by Romina Russell

Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter

Ancient Magic by Linsey Hall

Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes by Denise Grover Swank

The Queen’s Poisoner by Jeff Wheeler

Most of these are books that I borrowed from others or books I discovered after signing up for Kindle Unlimited and binging so many books. What books made your list?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

Blogtober Day Twenty-Seven: Books That Haunt


Hiii, lovelies! For one of the final days in Blogtober, I want to talk about some books that are haunting me. These books are not necessarily ghostly but the messages or characters or something in them has really resonated with me. And so, they haunt me. They have stuck with me, lodged in my brain, for all of time.

Dry by Neil & Jarrod Shusterman
Date Read: 2018
An all too real portrayal of the potential near future. I want to read it again.

Air Awakens by Elise Kova
Date Read: 2018
This series did some serious damage to my little hormonal pregnant heart. I can’t get the story or the characters out of my head.

A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest
Date Read: 2017
This series is never-ending and gets weirder and more creative with every installment. I’ve taken a break from the newest books recently, but I still think about them all the time.

Looking for Alaska by John Green
Date Read: 2010
My favorite book of all time. This story will be with me forever. It saved my life at a time when I didn’t really see the point. I’m always grateful for this story.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Date Read: 2014
This one haunts me like a ghost. It whispers, “Reread meeee.” and “Finish meee” because I never finished the series and it’s been so long I would need to reread all the ones I’ve read already.

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Date Read: 2013
My first dip into YA dystopian and I was (and still am) obsessed.

Anger is a Gift by Mark Oshiro
Date Read: 2019
A haunting story that I cried through probably 60% of the pages. This is a must-read.

People Kill People by Ellen Hopkins
Date Read: 2018
An all too real conversation about guns.

Beartown by Fredrik Backman
Date Read: 2019
Another book that I mostly just sobbed through.

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green
Date Read: 2018
Aliens, a conversation on social media and internet fame, plus that ending!

These are just a few books that really have stuck with me after reading. This list of books is a lot for me because I have a terrible memory. So, when a book really sticks in my mind, you know it’s a good one (in my opinion). Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what books would make your ‘haunting books’ list in the comments!

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
