WWW Wednesday – 8th May ’19

I can’t believe the first week of May is already gone. Where is this month going?!? I’m lagging behind. Wait for me…!

Welcome to my WWW Wednesday meme post, 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
  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll be reading next?

What I’m currently reading?

The Bone Witch by Rin ChupecoAsian Readathon – The first proper book from my Asian Readathon TBR. I’m almost halfway already. It’s a really quick read and I’m loving it!

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare – The last book in the series! I started this just after TomeTopple and I’m still going. It’s a 30h audiobook! It’s going to take me some time but I’m in no rush with this. It’s enjoyable so far. It has taken some twists and turns I didn’t expect.

Gutten (The Boy) by Jon Kalman Stefansson – I managed half of this book (almost) during TomeTopple, now I’ve got the other half to get through. I like and enjoy thus book, it’s just a bit dense. It oddly philosophical in a child-logic-way if that makes sense. Its funny at times. But mostly there is description of snow, ruff sea and of storms that the boy is travelling through. It’s amazing how someone can write 300p about snow without it getting boring. Impressed. Also this is and probably always will be my favourite cover of 2019! So simple yet so beautiful.

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah HarariI got it back! – I’ve gotten this back now, Reading bits and pieces. I’m over halfway and currently on the science and progress bit.

What I just finished?

The A-Z of Gender and Sexuality by Morgan Lev Edward Holleb – I’m finally finished! I really enjoyed tjis reference book. It contains everything you need. Review to come.

Monstress Vol 2 & 3 by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda – My first read for the Asian Readathon! I love this graphic novel. I don’t have much experience with graphic novels but Monstress is one I loved instantly and wanted to continue to read. The story has good in vol 1 and 2, but in vol 3 it starts to pick up for real and I’m loving it. Also the art is f***ing fabulous!! Once by buying band/leach is over, I’m buying all of these!

What I’m reading next?

I ‘m not sure but its probable something from my May TBR or my Asian Readathon TBR.

until next time

    1. Yeah I had the same feeling. I looked at picking it up for years and then didn’t. Now that I finally have I’m not regretting it one bit! I’m very much enjoying it. So far, I highly recommend it 😁

    1. I tend to like Cassandra Clare’s other books better that the mortal instrument series. I loved her infernal devices series and dark artifice series is a god second favourite. I hope you get around to picking it up 😁


  2. Oooh, I still have to read The Bone Witch! I’ve heard it was good. Glad to see you’re enjoying it!

    30 hours?! x.X I’m always in awe of people who can listen to super long audiobooks like that. I just … I wish I had that sort of attention span. xD Or, you know, any sort of attention span.

    I definitely need to read Monstress. I’ve heard such wonderful things about it, and that cover artwork is just breathtaking!

    Here’s my WWW post.

    1. I highly recommend it! Even though I’m only halfway 🤷‍♀️ it’s a quick and fun read.

      Yeah I find long audiobooks are something you need to get used too. I usually speed them up as I find the narration to be too slow which then makes my thoughts wander instead of listening.

      Yes! Monstress is really good and so beautiful! And a really quick read 😁

      1. My library does not have Monstress. T_T Looks like the only way I read it is if I go buy it lol. And I don’t want to read it on the Kindle, so I suppose I should just buy all three at once. Welp. Not like I need an excuse to buy more books, but it looks like I have one. xD
