It’s the middle of the week and time for another WWW Wednesday! It also happens to be October 3rd, for all myย Mean Girls fans out there! I think today may be a good day for a rewatch – it’s been a while since I last saw it. I babysit later tonight so maybe while the kids are asleep, I’ll watch it. Also, it’s a Wednesday … so obviously I need to wear pink!

Mean Girls October 3rd - The Contented Reader

I’m so happy it’s October. October is the start of a three month block that is my absolute favourite. I love the fall colours, Thanksgiving and Halloween in October. My birthday is in November and it’s the official kick off to the Christmas season in December.

But with October comes the fact that I am DROWNING in ARCs! There are so many incredible books coming out this month which means I will have some awesome reviews coming out in the next couple of weeks. I just love being a book blogger!

For those unfamiliar, WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam, who blogs over at Taking on a World of Words. The purpose is to answer three questions: what you’re reading, what you recently read, and what you’re going to read next – that’s it!

Currently Reading

When We Caught Fire by Anna Godbersen - The Contented Reader
The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee - The Contented Reader

When We Caught Fire by Anna Godbersen // I am very excited to be starting this book! I was a huge fan of The Luxe series when I read it back in high school. I love historical fiction and I just think this is going to be a great book!

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee // In preparation for The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, which came out yesterday (!!) I wanted to re-read the first book. I also realized that similar to Warcross, I never actually posted a review of this book. So, I want to immerse myself in the world again and post my review!
