WWW WEDNESDAY - DECEMBER 23rd

December 23, 2020


WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.

The three W’s stand for:

What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

We're almost at the end of the year and my reading still hasn't picked up. I'm hoping everything changes in the new year. I'm still reading what I want, when I want, and I'm loving it. That reading buddy thing I was doing with my daughters has been put off until the new year and we still haven't picked a book or series, but I'm optimistic that we'll get it done. I hope you've been having an amazing reading week!

What I've Read


Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia - 3 ★ - after all the hype this book got, and for how long I had a hankering to read it, I'm glad I got the chance. It was a bit different than I expected, a bit slower than I liked, but an enjoyable experience nonetheless.
Fear For Me by Cynthia Eden - 3.5 ★ - a thriller about a serial killer known as the Bayou Butcher, who has escaped from prison and is out for revenge.

What I'm Reading

Yellow Wife by Sadeqa Johnson


In the tradition of Wrench and Twelve Years a Slave, this harrowing story follows an enslaved woman forced to barter love and freedom while living in the most infamous slave jail in Virginia.

Born on a plantation in Charles City, Virginia, Pheby Brown was promised her freedom on her eighteenth birthday. But when her birthday finally comes around, instead of the idyllic life she was hoping for with her true love, she finds herself thrust into the bowels of slavery at the infamous Devil’s Half-Acre, a jail where slaves are broken, tortured, and sold every day. Forced to become the mistress of the brutal man who owns the jail, Pheby faces the ultimate sacrifice to protect her heart in this powerful, thrilling story of one slave’s fight for freedom.




What I'll Read Next


I'm still not planning anything. It's working and why fix what ain't broke?

    1. The entire series is about serial killers. There's romance, but the thriller part is what really drew me in.

  3. I enjoyed Mexican Gothic more mostly because I loved the descriptions and the creepy vibe, but I do agree that it was a lot slower than I thought it would be... I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading! Here's my WWW.
