WWW #3: February 6, 2019

www wednesday

I’m back this week with my answers to Taking On A World Of Words‘s three W questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Yeahhh!

Sapphicathon week = amazing week

This has been a great week of reading. So many of the books I’ve been picking up touched on topics I’ve been thinking about recently and I want to keep that going for the rest of the month.

CURRENTLY READING

WWW

These two are on hold

A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole — 65%

The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells — 44%

Actively reading

Under the Udala Trees by Chinelo Okparanta — 66%

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan — 8%

Bad Blood by John Carreyrou — 31%

17 people have Bad Blood on hold so I’m doing my part and getting it read quickly

RECENTLY READ

Kim Reaper | ★☆☆☆☆

This did not work for me at all. The character’s didn’t engage me and while the world was interesting it was overshadowed by the plot (which I was also not into).

Ripley’s Believe it or not | ★★☆☆☆

Ask the Passengers | ★★☆☆☆

This book gets a lot right, but it’s portrayal of sexuality was very 2010 and I’m happy I didn’t read this when I was younger. The gay or straight binary would have been very damaging.

Long Road to Liquor City | ★★★☆☆

Fearless | ★★★☆☆

I didn’t like this as much as I liked Knit One, Girl Two. It was underdeveloped and I didn’t feel attached to the characters so their connection didn’t engage me.

An Anonymous Girl | ★★★★☆

Little & Lion | ★★★★☆

WHAT’S NEXT?

11

I think I’ll be able to finish one more book for Sapphicathon, but here is what I hope to get to afterwards:

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory

23 people are waiting for this one so either I finish A Princess in Theory then pick this one up or I just get this one read as soon as possible.

Some Molière

Second month of French lit here I come! I need to make a list of how many of his plays I have and to see which one I want to read now. Reading them chronologically would be the most logical way to go about it, but I can also classify them by topic and pair them with recent books.
