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 in the middle of a million things. So, get ready for this long ass list. I’m physically reading Pahua and the Soul Stealer by Lori Lee. I’m about 30% of the way into Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune. I’ve also just started A Shadow in the Ember by Jennifer L. Armentrout because it just came out yesterday.

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

What did you read most recently?

Amanda- Yesterday, I finished the two audiobooks I was in the middle of: Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman and The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave.

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

What will you read next?

Amanda- I don’t know what I’ll pick up for my next eBook, but I’m planning to pick up Into the Dying Light by Katy Rose Pool for my next physical book. I need to pick out a new audiobook too, but I’m going to see what my library has for that.

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

What are your W’s this week?

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. This week’s topic is a list of books I read because someone recommended them to me (and who recommended them!)

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

The City of Brass by S. A. Chakroborty

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

Rules for Being A Girl by Candace Bushnell and Katie Cotugno

A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow

Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds

These are all the books Amanda recommended for me. What recent recommendations have you gotten?

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. This week’s topic is Books I Read Because Someone Recommended Them to Me (tell us who recommended them, if you want!)

The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker
My good friend Adrianna recommended this over and over and I’m so glad that she did. You can find her on twitter here!

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune
I loved this book so so much. I’m so glad that I watched one of Riley Marie’s vlogs (watch here!) where she read this book and loved it.

Rules for Being a Girl by Candice Bushnell & Katie Cotugno
Forever thankfully to my Twinny for coming at me with the best recommendations. Check out her blog, The Bookish Chick, for some great reviews.

For a Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig
Paige (find her on Twitter here!) raved about this book. I’d previously read and enjoyed one of Heilig’s books and I bought this one to get signed at an event I saw her at. But Paige is the reason I actually picked it up.

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
I was at the point of almost unhauling this before even reading it (while trying to cull my physical TBR to a less overwhelming number) but the way that Heathur from Aphrodite Reads absolutely raved about it had me rethinking that. I’m so glad I kept and read it because it was incredible.

There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool
My best bean got this book for me and I am eternally grateful. Check out Avhlee @ Tea Cups and Torn Pages, you won’t regret it. This, so far, hold the space for my favorite book of 2020.

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
This one was fabulous and I liked Thorne’s second book even better. Big thanks to Chelseadollingreads.

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee
This is a wonderful book that is horrifyingly underrated. I wish more people knew about this series. It’s basically Percy Jackson but with Chinese Folklore and every second was nothing but enjoyable. Also, I listened to the audiobooks which I highly recommend. The only other person who I’ve seen talk about this series (and she’s why I discovered the second book was out) is Books in the Skye.

Belle Révolte by Linsey Miller
Another amazing book that I only read because of my dear friend, Avhlee.

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada
My wonderful friend Rae (find her at Novels & Notions) bought this book for me and I am so so glad because this trilogy earned a place in my all-time favorites list.

What books have you read because of someone else and ended up loving them? I’d love to see your post this week!

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
