It’s the first one of 2020! the end of 2019 was a rush so I wanted a slow start… but then I started all the books over the course of a 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?
Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi – I got this as an ARC and here in the UK it came out in the autumn. It’s been a while since I read a YA contemporary and if feels fresh. I should have waited to start this until I finished Feathertide but oh well, I got excited…
Jordmor pa Jorda by Edvid Hoem – a Norwegian book about the authors great-great-grandmother who in 1820 walked to the Norwegian capital from the west coast (that’s really far!) to become a mid-wife. I’ve just tarted this and it’s a while since I’ve read Ny-Norsk or new Norwegian so it took a few pages before I got into it. Already deviating from my TBR 🤨
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern – I’m listening to this on audiobook and the narrators are amazing. I love the setting and the book/library/storytelling theme of the book and where the story lead, though I have no idea where that is. If I like this I will read the Night Circus which I have yet to read 🙂
Feathertide by Beth Cartwright – this is a fantasy based on mermaids and birds I think. Not yet sure. So far it reminds me of a Scottish island or something with whores in a whore house in a small fishing village. It’s interesting but I’m not sure where it takes me yet.
What I just finished?
Nothing. I just started everything….
What I’m reading next?
Based on my TBR I don’t have that many options really. I could start this year’s long classics and be done with it early for a change and not rush to finish it on new years eve as the previous three years… that’s a practical and good idea, but I have yet to make up my mind on which classic to pick. I’ve narrowed it down to The Count of Monte Cristo or Vanity Fair. Any advice?
In the meantime, I’ll pick up The Danish Girl by David Ebershoff which is our current office book club book so this has to be read in January. I just have to finish my current reads first…
until next time
