The final sprint…
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.
It’s that last week of NaNo, and I’m nervous.
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?
Becoming by Michelle Obama – Just started the audiobook for this. I bought my own copy a while ago but when I hear she narrates her own audiobook I reserved it at the library and have finally gotten it. It took several months. I haven’t gotten far but so far it’s interesting and I enjoy her narration.
Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell – It’s a surprisingly easy and entertaining read. But it’s over 1000 pages so I hope to finish it around Christmas… Progress so far: started on 2nd September, 4th Sep on 3% (iBook page 118/4503), 11th September on 5% (iBook page 243/4503), 18th September on 14% (iBook page 614/4503) – Well, hello Rhett…!. 25th September on 16% (iBook page 718/4503), 9th October on 27% (iBook page 1226/4503) – the long gazes #swoon, 16th October on 30% (iBook page 1350/4503), 23rd October 32% (iBook page 1476/4503) – Mistress!? how rude, 30th October – No progress, 6th November – 36% (iBook page 1635/4503), 20th November – 39% (1752/4503), 27th Novemeber – 43% (1942/4503). Scarlett has grown a spine over night, and no Rhett.
What I just finished?
Naturally Tan by Tan France – I love Queer Eye and especially Tan. I loved this audiobook! When other books might finish at the point of fame or the transition from normal to famous, Tan goes further. He talks about the economy, the social media, the ability to walk down the street, his family, and his life in general after the success of Queer Eye. Obviously he talked about his journeyfrom a queer childhood and fashion college to getting into Queer Eye. I also loved how Tan invited Antoni to come and talk on the audiobook twice! First Antoni comments on Tan’s description of when they first meet. It was very funny. The second was at the end and more of a dialouge. It was a great bonus feature which I belive was not in the physical copy of the book.
What I’m reading next?
QUEEN OF NOTHING BY HOLLY BLACK!!!!!!!!
I have the audiobook and super tempted to start itnow, but I need to prioritise NaNo and finish that if not I will fail NaNo this year. I will start the audiobook as soon as I can on the 1st December or as soon as I finish NaNo. I can’t wait!!
