The WWW Wednesday meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.
To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I have to admit to making very little progress with Every Sky a Grave since last week but I am determined I’m going to read it. I am finding sci fi and fantasy really difficult to read at the moment. I’m drawn more to “real” than speculative fiction and have been looking for character driven stories so I’ve been struggling to get started. I do think though once I do get past my initial reluctance I’ll be fine.
On audio I’m still listening to Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I have been a little lazy over the last week, not much walking, so I’ve only listened to a couple of hours but I’m enjoying revisiting it in a different format.
Due to some book avoidance and lots of netflix binge watches over the last week I’ve only managed to finish one book this week, Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid. I’d been seeing quite a bit of buzz around it so despite it not being especially excited by the blurb I thought I’d give it a go. I ended up really enjoying it and more or less read the whole thing over the weekend. I loved how character driven it was and in particular how female character driven. I wouldn’t say I especially liked any of the characters but there were elements to many of them I found very relateable. I also liked how it covered issues of racism and class and presented it from different perspectives. A very engaging read.
I have no idea what I’m going to read next, I’m doing that thing where I pick up a book read a few pages then put it down and pick up something else. I did start Idle Hands by Cassondra Windwalker this morning so I may continue with that or I may pick up the second book in the Jay Qasim series Homegrown Hero. Or I may just watch Frozen 2 a few more times and not read anything 😀
Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.
Happy Reading 🙂
