The last day of the month already, the clocks changed at the weekend, so it must surely mean spring is properly here. Finally! It has felt like a long winter.
WWW Wednesdays’ home is at Sam’s blog Taking On A World of Words. Check it out! (It’s her birthday today, so wish her a happy birthday!)
The three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you will read next?
What am I currently reading?
I am currently reading Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, but my reading has been a bit on the slow side. I like story so far, but I just haven’t found myself caught up in it yet. Hopefully I will. I had fully expected to finish it by the end of the month, but I’m not even halfway! Oh well 🙂
Same goes for The Flowers of Evil by Charles Baudelaire. I started this classic book of poetry quite early on in March and had expected to finish it by the end of the month, but I haven’t. It is not because I am not enjoying it. I am! In fact, I love these poems and that is also why I don’t just want to finish it just for the sake of finishing it. I want to enjoy these poems and take them in.
I started Pride and Prejudice on audio yesterday, read by actress Rosamund Pike. I was not sure what new audio book to pick and I have actually been meaning to re-read this one. It’s good, because it’s also when I can dip in and out of when I have a different audio book that I should read, as I know the story so well already. I have only just started, but I am enjoying listening to it!
What have I recently finished reading?
I did finish two shorter audio books and a paperback this past week, so I have done quite well. The two audio books were Ayoade on Top by Richard Ayoade and Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig. The first was wonderfully light relief and the second was kind of confronting, but really interesting to me and a relatively light read on mental health. Both were 6* reads for me.
I also finished Wilder Girls by Rory Power. This one was just ok for me. It did not quite grab me and I felt like it needed a little more flesh on its bones. (4*)
What will I be reading next?
It looks like last night my favourite music book club chose Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers) to read next, so I will probably pause Pride and Prejudice and listen to that one on audio instead.
As for a physical book, since my reading is a bit slow I will be mood reading and just pick up what I feel like when I finish my current read.
