Merry Christmas! or Happy Holiday to those who done do Christmas – I totally get you… this is stressful
Family time is stealing my reading time… I’m getting nervous about finishing a certain massive book I’m only halfway through with before the end of the year…. 😬
Welcome to my WWW Wednesday 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?
Jotnens Hjemkomst by Anders Bull-Hansen – I really want to finish this book for several reasons. I don’t like the writing style. It’s very telling instead of showing. It’s misogynistic and therefore pisses me off. But the story is partly interesting. And I borrowed it from my sister under her recommendation so I feel I have to at least finish it.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen narrated by Rosamund Pike – I love the voice of Rosamund Pike and she does an excellent job narration this book.
The Dragon Republic by R. F. Kuang – the squeal to The Poppy War. I’m 81% through and loving it 😁
The Gendered Brain by Gina Rippon – I’m about 2/3 through but it’s not an easy read. There are a lot of facts and information but it’s still super interesting.
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 November – 43% (1942/4503). Scarlet has grown a spine over night, and no Rhett, 4th December – 47% (2104/4503), 11th December – 50% !!! (2260/4503) – the struggles of post civil war, 18th December – 53% (2366/4503), 25th December – 53% (2370/4503).
What I just finished?
Nothing. I just started a lot of books instead… wise.
What I’m reading next?
According to my TBR, the choices are many but I don’t think I’ll be able to finish anymore books than what I’m currently got on. We’ll see.
until next time
