NaNoWriMo is going well and I’ve given myself some time to read and there is where I’m at.
I have a feeling I’m about to derail my 4-books-at-one-time train… I am currently on four books but I will not finish either for these before I start the next one. I’m derailing… but hey NaNo is great!
WWW Wednesday meme post is originally hosted by Taking in a World of Words. All I need to do is answer the three questions below which all start with a W.
The three W’s are
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll be reading next?
What are you currently reading?
Selfish, Shallow and Self-absorbed edited by Megan Daum – Essay anthology by 16 writers on the reason why they don’t want children. 16 writers 16 opinions. I don’t want kids, but I’m open to changing my mind. I know a lot of people are not. I picked this collection for ReadHarder Challenge 2018 for that reason; to understand all the different reasons why some people don’t want kids, ever. And I’m learning. There are many different ways of being a parent. There are just as many different ways of being a non- parent.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater – this is a book I started for LALAthon. I didn’t finish, but I’m halfway and loving it.
The Colour of Madness edited by Samara Linton – an anthology by BAME artists in the UK with a focus on mental health. This anthology is a mixture of art forms from paintings, poems, nonfiction and fiction short stories. It’s very interesting and I’m getting a deeper insight into cultures and how they view mental illness. Truly fascinating! I will do a review of this when I’m done.
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy – This is the longest read on my ReadHarder challenge this year. and I’ve just started it… I’m hoping to finish it before the end of the year. It’s my lunch book so it will last until Christmas, and then I’ll have to finish the rest during Christmas. But that is was Christmas is for; reading 😁

Love Beyond Body Space and Time edited by Hope Nichols – Review can be found here! I loved this book a lot!
What do you think you’ll be reading next?
So I’ve decided I should try TomeTopple… As If NaNoWriMo and LALAthon weren’t enough.
The first book for that is last months book club pick; Small Island by Andra Levy. This book follows the Windrush generation post WW2 and trying to make a life in London as a Caribbean immigrant. its 530pages and therefore covers several TomeTopple challenges.
What are you currently reading? Any good?
Until next time 😁
