WWW Wednesday – July 28, 2021 #wwwwednesday #bookishmemes

Greetings book lovers! Welcome to a new week of WWW Wednesday, a weekly series hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. In it, we share our reading progress for the week by answering three questions beginning with W and invite others to do the same.

The Three Ws are:

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

What am I currently reading?

Oh, Antkind, will I ever finish you? I don’t usually spend so many weeks on an audio, and that frustrates me. I am now on Track 15 of 22, so I’m definitely getting closer. It seems to get weirder, though slightly less irritating, as I move forward. He’s stopped using “thon” quite so much. I’ll explain that one more thoroughly in my review, but trust me, it’s annoying. I can’t claim to like this book, but I definitely respect it for the absurd satire that it is.

In hardback, I’m reading an incredibly interesting creative nonfiction book called Radiant: The Dancer, the Scientist, and a Friendship Forged in Light” by Liz Heinecke. I hope to finish this one today if I read like mad. I’ve realized I really need to pick up the pace on my library reads or I won’t be able to read all of them. Either that or I’ll owe my life savings in late fees to the library once I’m done.

What have I just finished reading?

Eh, not much to be honest. Nothing new to report on audio, though I did finish and post my review for The Enlightenment of the Greengage Tree at the first part of the week. I managed to finish the book over the weekend. It’s definitely a book I recommend for fans of magical realism.

What will I read next?

I found a quirky little book on audio called Peaces by Helen Oyeyemi. At one point, I thought I would take a break from Antkind and read something different in between, but I decided to just blaze right through and get done, so I tabled it again. I will pick it up as soon as I’ve finished Antkind.

In hardback, I’m going to pick back up the poetry collection, New Poems, by Rilke. I have actually started this one but I didn’t keep up with it so I plan to finish it before I start a new novel. In hardback, I’ll read One Two Three by Laurie Frankel. This is getting really great reviews and I’m excited to read it. But so far none of my friends have this one under their belt so I haven’t gotten any feedback from anyone I know, which is actually a good feeling because I’m typically behind on the newer books.

That’s it! Pretty short update for today! I’ll be back tomorrow with my TBR cleanup post. Unless I turn into a reading machine today, I doubt I get another review posted before the weekend, but miracles do happen. Happy Reading!

  1. Peaces may be the most odd yet interesting book cover I’ve ever seen! Curious to see how it is

      Reviews suggest the book is exceptionally odd. They are very mixed, which I find to be quite intriguing and makes me want to read it even more. Plus, how can you resist a book with a major character who is a mongoose??!!

    I hope you get through your audiobook this next week! I’m crossing fingers for you. If I would have switched books it would have been really hard to go back. I totally get just pushing through. I hope it picks up and you can get through the rest at a quicker pace. I have seen One, Two, Three around and I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

  3. I am curious about Peaces. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    I’m very curious about several of the books on your list. Great post! Visiting you today from Sam’s WWW Wed post. Here’s my first ever 3 W’s post. https://ginaraemitchell.com/www-wednesday-for-28-july-2021/

  5. So many great reads! I think I’m adding Peaces to my TBR list. Have a great week!

    I just started listening to more audiobooks over the past couple years, but the narrator can make or break the book for me. Feels like I’m multi-tasking if I read a couple while listening to another, lol.
