OMG this month is disappearing in front of my eyes…
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
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll be reading next?
What I’m currently reading?
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 and I only have 4h left!!
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 this 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 300 pages 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. I have about 300 pages left of this ginormous book.
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari – I went back to the library On Hold – I managed some this time. but it went back too soon. I have send feedback to the apps creators that I would really like to have the option of renewing a book instead for letting it go back. It’s just a piece of feedback not a complaint. Though I’m getting annoyed about this book constantly going back and having to read it when I finally get it. I wonder if I’m reading this book because I want to read it or whether I’m reading it so I can finish it. I’m not sure anymore…
What I just finished?
I have been reading a lot of short stories and books in relation to Asian Readathon including:
The Terracotta Bride by Zen Cho – a lovely novella about the Chinese afterlife with sci-fi elements. Very interesting concept. Less than 100 pages.
Waiting of a Bright Moon by J. Y. Yang – A queer sci-fi and magical novella/short story with empires and rebels. Less than 100 pages.
Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars: A Dangerous Trans Girl’s Confabulous Memoir by Kai Cheng Thom – as the title said a dangerous memoir with magic and a confabulous femmes through out. Less than 300 pages. I loved this! Review to come!
What I’m reading next?
I actually know what I want to read next for once. I’ll be reading Tali Nohkati: The Great Crossing by Koza Belleli and Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit by Nahoko Uehashi. Moribito is for Asian Readathon, while Tali Nohkati is an ARC. I’m cautions of Tali Nohkati and will be reading with a critical eye. However, I’m very exited from Moribito (it’s translated from Japanese) and feel I will binge read this in a day!
until next time
