I’ve had a great reading week!
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?
The Darkness by Ragnar Jonasson – I’m listening to this on audio and it’s quite good. It’s Icelandic crime and after The Boy Trilogy I feel like I need a bit more Iceland in my life.
Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James – I’m halfway though this and really enjoying it, but I have now decided to go over to ebook instead of audiobook. I have several audiobooks I need to get to and Black Leopard was the only one I could find with an ebook alternative via the library. Also it’s nice to have a map now which you don’t get with the audiobook format.
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… I’m getting this back tomorrow and I hope to have time for it this weekend.
What I just finished?
Gutten (The Boy) by Jon Kalman Stefansson – I FINISHED! It was really good and weird and expressive and lyrical and amazing and different! And I just discovered it exists in English: Heaven and Hell by Jon Kalman Stefansson. Highly recommended and it’s about 200 pages! It’s only book 1 of the trilogy while I read the bind-up of the trilogy.
What I’m reading next?
This weekend it’s #FemmeFanTale or the female authors of fantasy readathon hosted by Jen over at Bookishthoughts. I will publish my TBR tomorrow so look out for that 🙂
until next time
