It is time for WWW Wednesday, my favorite meme! The gracious Sam from Taking On a World of Words continues to host even when she is on vacation! So, without further adieu, I give you…
What Did I Just Finished Reading?
I had a doozie of a week! Thanks to the Dewey’s 24 Hour (Reverse) Readathon I had a fire lit under me and I made reading a priority all week long. If you want to see how very poorly and erroneously my participation was you can read about it here. The above are the physical fiction books I read this week. The standouts are, hands down, Circe by Madeline Miller which I gushed about here and The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin which I reviewed here. I also enjoyed Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella and that review will be up on Saturday.
As for audiobooks, I finished Stuff Matters by Mike Miodownik and loved it. If you are looking for a non-fiction book narrated in a crisp British accent that uses everyday objects to explain quantum mechanics this one is for you. I will give this gem a more thorough review in my Non-Fiction Friday segment soon.
I am also on the hunt for more Graphic Novels for my Sunday Comics section. I read The Cardboard Kingdom by Chad Sell. It was a sweet short story graphic novel about accepting yourself and others through cosplay. I checked out Robot Dreams by Sara Aaron. And, finally, I got my hands on the second in a children’s series I love called Mighty Jack and the Goblin King by Ben Hatke.
What am I Currently Reading?
This week I continue to journey through The Two Towers. I am approximately one-third of the way through the book and still enjoying it. Those Ents, even though they are a favorite of mine from the movies, take forever to make a decision and that passage slowed me down. But, I plan to get back to around 20 pages a day.
I am also in the middle of both the graphic novel The Sandman Vol 1, Preludes and Nocturns by Neil Gaiman and the middle-grade book, Black Panther the Young Prince by Ronald L. Smith. Finally, just this morning I started listening to the audiobook of Homey Don’t Play That: The Story of In Living Color and the Black Comedy Revolution by David Peisner.
What Will I Read Next
I need to read a western for my Read Harder Challenge and instead of a cowboy perspective I thought I would go with the Native American viewpoint. Yesterday I saw a post by Amanda from Literary Weaponry raving about Daughter of the Pirate King and since I have it waiting on my shelf I decided it was up next.
Tell me, please!
