Not yet in isolation…
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 Rabbi’s Daughter by Reva Mann – This has been on my shelves for years. I initially picked it up after a trip to Israel and Palestine back before the Syrian Spring. I started reading it back then too, but never finished. I enjoyed it and wanted to read it fully but never got that far until now. Its about Reva Mann who is the daughter of an orthodox Rabbi in London. She on the other hand lashes out against the strictness by doing everything she shouldn’t do before sending herself to an super strict and super orthodox school to reclaim herself.
The City We Became by N. K. Jemisin – LOVING THIS! It’s funny! Surprisingly funny. Well the first PoV is funny and slightly off hinged. It’s so different from anything else I’ve read. Its original and super cool!
Jordmor pa Jorda by Edvind Hoem – ON HOLD – This is a slow read but very interesting. A mix between non-fiction and historical fiction. Very original. I should probably un-hold this now but I’m not ready yet. I need fast paced stuff right now and this doesn’t have that.
What I just finished?
Don’t Tell My Mum I Work On The Rigs, She Think I’m A Piano Player In A Whorehouse by Paul Carter – A non-fiction account of the late 70s through to the 90s working on the rigs in and around Australia, Brunei and south Asia. This was brutal and funny at the same time.
My Sister, The Series Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite – This is very interesting a fast read. It’s an original take on a serial killer and a crime novel where the main character is the killers sister and they are living a normal life, but the MC is struggling to believe her sister in her self defence claim, especially since this is the third time. I’m very much enjoying this 🙂
Recursion by Blake Crouch – What is memory is the only thing we have that indicate time? What is time doesn’t exist in the way w think? What if memory is the only way to measure time? A mind bending sci-fi that is really interesting. I’m listing to this on audiobook and the narrator is doing a good job 🙂
What I’m reading next?
Based on my March TBR I should have picked this up last week, so I’m definitely picking it up this week…! I think.
until next time
