The do-over continues! I knew that I needed to take a break, step away, and start afresh when I couldn’t even muster the courage to post for WWW, my favorite! I cannot wait to see what everyone has been reading.
Thanks, as always to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and this wonderful WWW post to keep me going. If you want to join me, just answer the three questions below about how your reading is going this week and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to admire. Don’t forget to check all the other participants. It is the #1 way I keep my TBR overflowing!
WHAT AM I CURRENTLY READING?
I started I am Malala this weekend. I am approximately half way through and my biggest take away right now is how similar the people misusing Islam are to those Christians here in American wielding religion to wrestle control over others lives. It is terrifying to think how quickly their world changed. I am floored already by Malala’s bravery in speaking out and risking her life.
My Lady’s Choosing is a re-read (hello joyful mood reading!). This is a choose-your-own adventure romance book and, if you are fan of the regency romances, this book is for you.
Finally, I am listening to the audiobook of The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. This futuristic tale of cloning is fantastic. I think I know what is going to happen but I cannot wait to actually find out.
WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?
I have had a great week of reading. First, I finished The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune. This is going to be the book to beat this year for me. It was such a pleasure to read and I cannot wait to reread it. The only downside was reviewing it and not being able to really talk about what I loved for fear of spoiling it for others. If you need a book to lift you up, this is the one. My full review is here.
I also flew through My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite. Whew! This book was a quick read and, while many people found it darkly funny, I cannot get past the question, “What would I do for family?” My full review is up tomorrow.
Finally, I read the excellent graphic novel, The Black Panther Party by David F. Walker and Marcus Kwame Anderson. This book did a fantastic job of remaining neutral and delivering facts leaving the reader the one to judge the actions of the Party and its members. Truthfully, it is a must read. The review will be up Friday.
WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?
After the collapse of my reading and writing in February I am determined to not over-plan. I will pick something that brings me joy!
Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?
