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?

This week I got to 50 books read this year! I don’t really care about the total number books I read, but the more books I read the larger sample size I get for end of the year stats ;).

CURRENTLY READING

1The Disordered Mind by Eric R. Kandel — 12%

I’ve only just started this one but from what I’ve read I’m threading carefully. There have already been some questionable comments about autism and personality disorders…

2The Leavers by Lisa Ko — 79%

This one is giving me a lot of feelings. If you know any trans racial adoptee who reviewed this please let me know.

RECENTLY READ

3The Seven Lives of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton | ★★★☆☆

I enjoyed this one, but in addition to some issues with the writing, the level of fatphobia and casual misogyny really took away. Read my review here.

4The Time Machine by H.G. Wells |★★★☆☆

This was not what I expected; it’s my favorite H.G Wells I’ve read up to now.

 

5Mighty Jack vol. 1 by Ben Hatke |★★★★

With Mighty Jack you get all the best parts of MG fiction in a short graphic novel: the adventure, the fast pace, the relatable characters… I particularly loved that it showed homeschooled kids for what they are. Weirdos, but cool weirdos. For real, a homeschool teen having home? Totally possible, my brother has one.

6Bloom by Kevin Panetta |★★★☆☆

If this hadn’t been pitched to me has a romance I would have given it four stars because while I didn’t buy the romantic connection I loved the family relationships and the ”I’m an asshole and I don’t know what I’m doing with my life” aspects.

7Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell |★★☆☆☆

This was not thrilling in any way, but it’s strength as a character driven story still made it an interesting read.

WHAT’S NEXT?

11Mighty Jack vol. 2 by Ben Hatke

LIFE

Daylight saving time is kicking my ass and I’m one of those people who get seasonal depression in the spring so my sleep is terrible. Since this weekend I’ve played Clue with my family almost every night which is making me remember how much I love board games (and winning).
