Happy hump day, readers! We’ve reached the middle of another week, which makes it time to catch up with what’s being read! WWW Wednesday is a weekly reading update 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?
The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller
Still working on this one, definitely not a contemporary fan. This genre just seems to drag on and on and leave me wanting something more. I don’t want to DNF it, but it’s definitely one that I keep putting down; even the audiobook can’t keep my interest for long.
A Map is Only One Story edited by Nicole Chung & Mensah Demary
This is another one that I’ve been picking up and putting down a lot. I’m enjoying the stories, but this is one that needs focus and concentration on the individual essays so I don’t miss anything. If you haven’t seen my last WWW, this is an essay collection that brings together “twenty writers on immigration, family, and the meaning of home.”
The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
Yeah, I just saw the trailer for the movie, and Tom Hiddleston is in it, and the story line looked interesting from what they showed, so I figured I’d give it a go.
What did you recently finish reading?
I finally finished Curse of the Night Witch by Alex Aster. I enjoyed this one. It took me a while to get through because I kept putting it down, but it’s a solid 3/3.5 star read for me.
What do you think you’ll read next?
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
This is still on my read-next list. I totally forgot about it, and then the loan expired so, oops.
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
I’ve heard mixed reviews on this, but Libby had it in the Lucky Day books and it sounds all right.
