WWW Wednesday – May 26, 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 are you currently reading?
  • What have you just finished reading?
  • What will you read next?

What am I currently reading?

I’m still making my way through Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. I’ve had a bit less time to read over the past week so my progress has suffered. Last Wednesday I had only just started and this week I’m about a quarter of the way through. It’s a difficult book, but it’s quite masterfully written and I’m enjoying it very much.

On audio, I’m reading an incredibly strange but highly interesting modern fantasy by Elizabeth Knox called The Absolute Book. This book starts off relatively normal and then devolves into something quite bizarre and borderline absurd. Though I can’t claim I’m not enjoying it, and Knox’s prose is definitely something to appreciate. She’s clearly a masterful wordsmith.

What have I just finished reading?

I just finished House of Hollow on audio by Krystal Sutherland. I really enjoyed this one in all its weird and creepy glory. I have changed my mind from my initial choice of using this novel as my fantasy (#40) for the reading challenge. I’ve decided to use it for the book with an Eye-catching cover at #23. I will use The Absolute Book as my fantasy selection. Sad to say, I’ve only finished the one over the course of the week. I really plan to ramp up my reading in the coming days.

What will I read next?

I’m going to have to renew some books, but I think I’ve decided to pick up Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson. It seems like it might be the quickest read of my current checkouts which will allow me to move forward pretty quickly. I’ll follow that with Agatha Christie’s debut novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles: The First Hercule Poirot Mystery. I won’t be choosing an audiobook for my next read, as The Absolute Book is quite lengthy and I’m not sure I’ll even make it through in the span of this week.

There you have it! I’m excited to keep moving forward with progress this week. Feel free to share your post. Until next time, happy reading.
