It’s been a slow week of reading.
Remember how I was reading 3-4 books a week for the last couple months? Well, it slowed down a little this week. Instead, the number went to another section.
You’ll see what I mean.
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 reading MANY books currently. And that’s why I haven’t finished more.
I’m still listening to Pride by Ibi Zoboi on audiobook. I did make progress last week and am 65% into the book. Even though I didn’t get a chance to listen to it more than once, I couldn’t help but think about where I left off multiple times.
I started reading The Color Purple by Alice Walker early last week. I didn’t read the blurb and jumped right in so I was surprised about the story. I didn’t know that it dealt with heavy topics and is not easy to read.
I only read it for about a day before I put a pause on it. I will get back to it slowly over time because it’s not a book I can read at once.
The book actually reminds me of The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison because of the themes and language.
The last book that I’m currently reading is Emma by Jane Austen. I started it just last night actually and am less than a chapter in.
I joined a book club through twitter with a few others and we decided to read Emma so that’s why I picked it up. It has been on my TBR for a long time so its good that I finally have the motivation to read it.
What did you recently finish reading?
I managed to finish two books last week.
The first was I Wish You All The Best by Mason Deaver which I finished last Wednesday.
I’m really glad that I finally read it. It gave me perspective on some things especially since it is my first book with a non-binary main character.
It was really nice. Definitely recommend it.
The second book that I managed to finish was Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal. I finished it just last night.
It’s honestly a GREAT book. I like how the author told multiple perspectives of Indians who settle in other countries hoping to provide more for their children. But the best part was obviously ripping apart the stigma around sex and talking about it.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I don’t think I should plan my next reads because I’m currently reading three haha.
That being said, the books I really want to read next are Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar and Beach Read by Emily Henry.
Of course, there’s also The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins which just released. I’m not sure I’ll be reading it very soon though. I haven’t even gotten the book yet.
