WWW Wednesday – 7th August ’19

It been a slow week filled with gardening and not much reading, but I’ve started something new ๐Ÿ™‚

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 Wโ€™s are
  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think youโ€™ll be reading next?

What I’m currently reading?

The Undoing of Arlo Knott by Heather Child – I meet this author a few months back and was very exited for her new book. Arlo Knott is a boy who starts begin able to undo the last few seconds of his life. He can retract a reply, a punch, a question and purchase, a beer, etc. It’s a fun book. I’m only a few chapters in and I’m not entirely sure where this book is going.

Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James – I have this on audiobook which I’m slightly regretting. The narrator is doing an amazing job, but I struggled in the beginning for keeping up and figuring out who was talking and where they were. I’m now 4h into this 24h book and I have finally figured this stuff out, I think. I always struggle with listing to fantasy books on audiobook unless it’s a sequel and I already know the world and the characters. I knew this was a fantasy, and I knew I usually struggle with those on audio, still I blindly went ahead… silly me, but I’m enjoying it and it’s quite good ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s Not About The Burqa edt by Miriam Khan – An anthology by Muslim women about Muslim women for once. They talk about Islam, feminism, sexism , faith and race. It’s very interesting and funny and heartwarming. Finally we get to hear their side of the story and not from the men, or from the non-Muslim community. I’m currently 1/4 through and it’s really good but I had to return it to the library and there is now a very long waiting list… it’s not coming free before 15th August… Not long now. I hope to finish Black Leopard Red Wolf before this one comes back to me.

Gutten (The Boy) by Jon Kalman Stefansson – I didn’t managed to finish this in July, but I read 10p yesterday so yeah I’m still going. I’m currently on page 633, which means I have about 80p left!!

What I just finished?

I haven’t finished anything in a while….

What I’m reading next?

I need to get the book club book read, so I can lend it to others in the club who don’t own a copy.

until next time

  1. The Undoing of Arlo Knott sounds like a pretty interesting concept. I really want to read Black Leopard, Red Wolf! I have trouble sometimes, even with reading, keeping track of a large cast of characters, too. I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying it, though. Happy reading!

    Here’s my WWW post.
