Thanks, as always, goes to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words for hosting the meme that keeps my TBR under some semblance of control. The groundhog says we will have six more weeks of winter. That is six more weeks of dedicated reading time without having to explain to people why you don’t want to be outside.
If you want to participate in WWW, feel free! The more the merrier (and the bigger my TBR becomes). All you have to do is answer the Three W’s:
- What did you recently finish?
- What are you currently reading?
- And, what do you think you’ll read next?
Yup. Still working through Persuasion. I am determined this one this shift into “recently finished” by next week.
The library may still be holding onto Baggage but they did delivery The Road Trip to me. I love Beth O’Leary’s books and I am looking forward to enjoying this one.
After my January Wrap-Up I realized that I was reading a lot of white books about white people. That has got to change. I grabbed Never Caught, The Washington’s Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave Ona Judge, by Erica Armstrong Dunbar. I’m 10% into this audiobook and riveted. It is a lot about the Washingtons that I really should have learned years ago.
I picked up The Shortest History of China by Linda Javin. After listening to Vigil: Hong Kong on the Brink by Jeffrey Wasserstrom I realized that I really didn’t understand Chinese history and therefore, couldn’t comprehend the issues related to Hong Kong. I’m approximately 1/5 of the way into this book and fascinated.
WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH?
I sat down on this past cold Sunday and read the whole of Sophie Kinsella’s newest, The Party Crasher. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is just what you would expect from a Kinsella book.
I also finished I Hate, I Bake, and I Don’t Date which was….meh. This book had a lot of great characters and moments that were overrun by the constant joke that the main character eats her feelings and some really not great open door sex scenes.
I also put Center Center on my DNF shelf. I read almost 75% of it and then I couldn’t read any more. He must be tremendously talented but holy moly this book needed an editor. There were chapter upon chapter written in odd third person about his family, random essays about his DJing….I just had enough. “Almost memoir” is very accurate.
Your Guide to Not Getting Murdered in a Quaint English Village was a hoot. Short, with illustrations that I couldn’t stop looking at, this book was such fun. If you are a fan of murder stories set in England this one is perfect for you
WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?
No idea at all!
Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?
