WWW Wednesday – May 19, 2021 – #wwwwednesday #bookishmemes

Welcome to a new week of WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. In it, we answer three questions and leave a link in the comments sharing our own posts for other bloggers to view.

The three W’s are:

  • What have you just finished reading?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What will you read next?

What have you just finished reading?

I just finished two books over my weekend of traveling to and from Dallas, Texas, for a family reunion. Yay for car reading. I posted my reviews for both The Midnight Library by Matt Haig and The Future is Yours by Dan Frey yesterday to my blog. They are drastically different books, one fantasy of a very philosophical nature and the other science fiction dealing with the ethical conundrums sparked by technological innovation. On the whole, I enjoyed both of them, so it was a good reading week.

What am I currently reading?

In hardback, I’m reading Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. Seriously, this book has a 4.46 on goodreads out of 213,158. I’m on page 1, so give me time to develop a sense, but this is the kind of book that typically makes me gush with praise and wax poetic after finishing, so I’m very excited to dig into it. On audio, I’m currently reading a delightfully creepy modern gothic fairy tale called House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland. From the reviews I see, this is one to stick with you. Eerie, twisted, shocking are some words I see scattered about. I’m about 1/3 of the way into it, and so far I agree. And how beautiful is that cover? The whole thing just sucks you in and won’t let go. Props to Sutherland for her seriously strong prose. I find this to be a joy to read. Looking forward to keeping going with the audio.

What Will I Read Next?

SO MANY CHOICES! I’m at a bit of a breaking point. I’ve put so many things on hold and now they are all coming available both at the library on the hold shelf and on overdrive, so I’m drowning in choices. So I think I’m going to do something a bit different this time. I’ll post a gallery of the choices that are on my to-read ASAP list and say I have no idea which two I will pick, but I will pick two of them to start on after finishing the two H’s up above. Have you read any of these? Is there one you recommend I pick? Tell me in the comments. Until we meet again, happy reading!
