WWW Wednesday – 7th August ’19

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

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 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 🙂

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.
