WWW Wednesday – 22nd May ’19

Aaaaaand I’m behind on my reading… SURPRISE!!

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?

This Is Going To Hurt: Secret Diary of A Junior Doctor by Adam Kay – This is a funny, real diary of a junior doctor in the NHS (public health care system) here in the UK. I’m listning to this on audiobook and loving the author’s narration 😁

Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit by Nahoko UehashiAsian Readathon – My translated choice for Asian Readathon. This Japanese story is a mix of westeren storytelling and Japanese stories. I read 7 pages on Saturday and haven’t picked it up since… promising.

Gutten (The Boy) by Jon Kalman Stefansson – Yup! Still going. It’s slow and I’ve made no progress since last week.

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah HarariIt went back to the library. No progress since last week. Who knows when I’ll finish this one…

What I just finished?

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare – The final in the trilogy. Interesting ending… 🤔

I’m Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya – A powerful little book about toxic masculinity, about misogyny, about negative attitude, and about pulling through. It’s about a cummulation of experiences as a boy, as gay, as trans and as a woman that lead to being afraid of men. It fell close to my heart and said out loud those things I didn’t felt like saying but had to be said. I found myself nodding along on several occasions. It’s a very short book and I highly recommed this 1h30min audiobbok which she narrates herself.

What I’m reading next?

Unfortunately I will have to pick up this general piece of fiction for the book club which is meeting next wednesday. I’m not looking forward to it and have delayed it for a very long time. But it’s got to be read, or attempted at least.

until next time
