WWW Wednesday – August 25, 2021 – #wwwwednesday #bookishmemes

Welcome to another week of WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme where bloggers share their weekly progress and plans for their future reading adventures. This meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. I did finally finish my two books last week, so I actually have progress to report! Yay for me! Here we go!

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’ve just barely started my new hard copy read of The Comfort of Monsters by Willa C. Richards. I took it with me to Kansas City but literally didn’t read one page. So we trudged back to Ozark together and I still haven’t picked it up this week. I definitely plan on diving into it today as much as possible.

On audio, I’m listening to Balli Kaur Jaswal’s new novel, The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters. I first read her novel from 2017, Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows. I read the latter back in October and positively loved it. To read my review, click here: Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows. So far, this one isn’t near as enjoyable, as it lacks that endearing but slightly raunchy wit of the first, and I haven’t really grown to love the characters yet. Honestly, I find I really dislike two of the three sisters and am very “meh” about the third. Yikes. I hope that I’m able to develop some affection for them since I’m only about a quarter of the way in.

What Have I just finished reading?

I finished two books at the end of last week before I left on my trip. My review for Nine Perfect Strangers was posted earlier this week, and you can find it here. I also finished my audiobook version of The Secret Keeper of Jaipur, but I haven’t gotten a review posted yet. I really enjoyed revisiting the world Alka Joshi created with The Henna Artist. I don’t think I liked this sequel quite as well as the first, but it was still a really worth-while read and did justice to the characters I’d grown to love. I should get my review posted tomorrow.

What Will I read next?

Next I’m going to read a historical fiction book I picked up from the library, The Girl in His Shadow by Audrey Blake. I think I stumbled upon this one on the library’s website and thought it looked interesting and girl power-ish. On audio, I’m going to do something I’ve planned to do for a long time. I’m going to reread Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone! It’s the version narrated by Jim Dale and I can’t wait!

That’s all for me this week! Until we see each other again, happy reading!

    I love your reading taste! Balli Kaur Jaswal is a writer I adore. I still need to read “The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters.” “Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows” was one of my favorite reads in 2019. It has so many genres mixed into it. I’ll have to checkout out your review.

    Here is my WWW Wednesday post:

    A Pho Love Story by Loan Le & Somewhere Between Bitter and Sweet by Laekan Zea Kemp (#BookReiew #WWWWednesday)

    This week I’ve been reading a lot of food themed books. Hopefully, I get to read Jaswal’s newest book before the end of the year.

    Great list! I am almost finished rereading the Harry Potter books. I listened to the books narrated by Stephen Fry and they are just fantastic. I’ll be sad when I’m done! x
