WWW Wednesday // 13th May 2020

Hey everyone!

Okay so I wasn’t actually going to update my reading this week. Mostly because I posted just yesterday and also my eyes are STRAINED this week. Like, my eyes are kinda red as I type this right now.

But I’m on the laptop anyway right now as I’m chatting with my friends on Discord. I was doing my assignment but since that’s done, I thought why not blog.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly blogging meme hosted by Taking On a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

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

What are you currently reading?

I’m still in the middle of Pride by Ibi Zoboi on audiobook. I made some progress but not much. Reading has been more my thing.

The ebook I’m currently reading is I Wish You All The Best by Mason Deaver. This book first caught my eye when I was going through 2019 releases back in end of December 2018. So it’s been over a year!

I’m really enjoying it so far. I think this is the first time I’m reading a book with a non-binary main character. It’s sad that it’s my first, but at least I’m getting to it.


What did you recently finish reading?

I read two books in the last week. It’s half as much as the week before, but oh well. Work has been hectic, and I blogged more and spent time blog hopping as well.

#1

The first book I picked up was Darius the Great is Not Okay by Adib Khorram. I actually meant to pick up Truth or Beard by Penny Reid but I chose Darius the Great is Not Okay on Kindle by mistake. I didn’t realize the mistake until almost a whole chapter in so I just continued.

It was such a nice read! I loved Darius, first of all. The book also introduces us to Iran and their cultures which was super interesting. Darius’s relationship with his family was also interesting to read about. I always love family focus.

4/5 stars.

#2

The second book was what I initially meant to pick up. Truth or Beard by Penny Reid has been a book I’ve looked forward to for a long time. I remember loving the Knitting in the City series so I had similar expectations for this.

Unfortunately, the book disappointed me. It was nowhere near my expectations and I’m SO SAD.

It definitely had some good parts but it wasn’t much on the whole and there were multiple things that annoyed me. I tried to like it but I couldn’t. I feel sad. Not sure if I’ll continue with the series soon.

2.5/5 stars.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Honestly, no clue. I’m not going into the next week with any plan because I know I’ll have a lot of work to do for both college and internship. Let’s hope I have time to read in the first place.

  1. I hope your eyes will be better soon. Don’t overdo it. Maybe they are too dry? Do you have any eyedrops at home?
    I have seen Truth or Beard around but I don’t really know what it’s about. It sounds a little bit like somebody took a dare or something. I’m curious what you’re thinking when you get to it.

    1. Thanks! I don’t think dryness is the issue. It becomes red only due to strain of looking at screens. I’m a software engineer so screens are my life haha and blogging doesn’t help either. I currently do use glasses to reduce the light and they’ve worked for me for the last 10 years. But now with the sudden increase of screen time (due to work from home), it’s not enough.

      Truth or Beard was not good haha. I had expectations but it didn’t live up to them.
