WWW Weds: Wattpad Horror and Ben Shapiro

I have some really interesting interviews in the works and I absolutely can’t wait to share them with you all! But in the meantime, let me try to act like a book blogger (I know I really need to give up and accept that I’m not longer a book blogger).

WWW Weds is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

It’s three simple questions:

What Are You Currently Reading?

What Did You Recently Finish Reading?

What Do You Think You Will Read Next?

Let’s get into it!

What Are You Currently Reading?

So, firstly I’m reading Heidi, a classic. Like most public domain works, it is available on wattpad in its entirety. It’s really cute so far. I remember watching the Shirley Temple adaptation of this as a kid with my grandmother. Fun read.

The next three are wattpad originals.

Cutie Cutie Ghost Show is a really interesting dystopian about a near future where everyone’s lives revolve around social media, even after they die. It’s both creepy and a little whimsical.

Just a Circus Puppet is exactly the sort of horror story that does great on wattpad. It’s surreal and gory and visceral. I remember seeing the author say somewhere that the idea for the story came to her in a dream. It really shows. The story is so strange. It’s a bunch of people who are in some weird version of hell, forced to be puppets in a circus, with needles piercing and puncturing their flesh and everything. The body horror is real.

Lastly, there is Persephone by one of my favorite wattpad writers (and someone I’m blessed to call a friend!) Emily Hurricane. This book is gritty, sassy and all-around just fun and heartfelt at the same time. It’s a coming-of-age story about a girl from a dysfunctional home learning how to navigate the world.

What Did You Recently Finish Reading?

Did not so much finish this as I did finally decide to DNF it. I’ve been slowly plodding through this thing since March. It was time to admit defeat.

There’s nothing really wrong with the book, but 50 pages from the end, I just didn’t really care what happened. It was an okay book, but I couldn’t really tell which of the plot threads I was supposed to care about. Becky trying to plan the perfect Christmas is presented as the main plot thread, but honestly, her overspending, terrible decisions, and flirting with and fantasizing about her ex-now-rock-star-boyfriend seem like way bigger problems.

There was so much going on and all of it was pretty entertaining, but it didn’t feel like the book was wrapping up and….I guess I just had fatigue over the whole thing. Didn’t hate it, but reluctant (yet necessary) DNF on this one.

What Do You Think You Will Read Next?

Well, I just got this gem from my city library.

And this one is at the very top of my TBR!

Yessss. This is the energy the book community needs.

My game plan is to first read all of Ben Shapiro’s books and review them. Then read all of the books in the incel wiki. (Click that link! It goes to the incel wiki book page!)

I just want to do book blogging like nobody else does book blogging ❤

Anyhow, what are you reading? Anything on wattpad? Anything that will destroy you with facts and logic?

Let me know in the comments! 🙂

  1. You will certainly be a unique book blogger if you follow this plan.

    I am getting destroyed by the facts and logic in Nancy R. Pearcy’s Love Thy Body. Actually I’m getting destroyed because it’s a dystopian vision of the world which we are actually living in. I think I’ll post a review of it around Halloween, because it’s the scariest thing I’ve read in ages.
