I keep starting books…arg!
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 currently Gothtober and my TBR can be found here.
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?
Sofia Khan is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik – a muslin rom-com book? Yes please 🙂 I’m only an hour in but so far it’s very funny and I really like her writing style.
The Heartforger (The Bone Witch #2) by Rin Chupeco – it’s good to be back here. I’m loving the way this story is told with present and past side by side. The present time never matches the past which means there is always some questions up in the air making me absorbed.
Nod by Adrian Barnes – Pandemic book during a pandemic? was this a wise choice? It’s a slow-moving book with fancy language so I’m definitely sure if it’s not for me, but I’ll finish it. I’m almost halfway and getting through it slowly but surely.
Sex and Lies by Leïla Slimani – who knew Morocco was so uptight? It’s all about “you can do what you want as long as you don’t talk about it”. Also about what people do inside their houses are nobody’s business as long as you keep it inside. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to live like this. Super interesting book. I’m almost halfway.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas – Started this during TomeTopple in August. It’s 52 hours long and by the end of the readathon I had 38 hour left. No progress since last week so I’ve still got 28 hours left 🙂
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley – This was not what I expected. Though to be honest I don’t know what I was expecting. I’m glad I finished it. I’m not sure if I liked it or not. I need to think about it…
Archangel by Robert Harris – I’m glad this is over…
White Fragility by Robin D’Angelo – Such an interesting book! I learn so much and not just about white people and racism, but about my own reaction and to listen to myself when my white fragility surfaces. I hope this book will linger in my head and that I in the future will stop getting defensive when accused of racism and rather stop, think and figure out what I said/what happened. Then work through it without making excuses. I’m buying a hard copy for my own reference soon.
until next time
