WWW: What I am reading on 18 May 2022

WWW Wednesdays’ home is at Sam’s blog Taking On A World of Words. Check it out!

The three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you will read next?

***

Again, I have not been reading very much. I don’t feel slumpy – I have just been doing other things. We have been hanging out with friends a lot over the last week, so a lot less time for reading. It was a lovely week, but now I am back to the normal more antisocial animal that I am!

What did I finish reading?

Only one book! I read Gold Dust by Ibrahim al-Koni. It was a good read, but my mind was drifting a lot, which says more about my state of mind at the time of reading than the book itself. It’s definitely a book I will re-read in the future as I am not sure my reading it at this time did it justice.

What am I currently reading?

I made little progress in either my audio book (The Life of Olaudah Equiano) or my anthology (Spring, edited by Melissa Harrison) this week. I have started reading Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, which is on my 2022 TBR. I am just over halfway and I am intrigued. I am not quite sure whether I will end up loving it, but I am definitely interested in what I am reading.

What will I read next?

I am not sure. My spring TBR reads are not going well – I have been way too slow reading this month and I have three really big books on there! We’ll see. A lot can change. I may read tons in the next two weeks. Who knows?

  1. Oh, no, you don’t want big books when you’re reading slowly, you need quick wins! Hope you find some! I’m not doing that and reading a big one: Snow Widows by Katherine MacInnes, the story of the women left behind by the men of Scott’s tragic expedition to the South Pole. I just finished Larry McMutry’s Desert Rose, a bittersweet novel about a Las Vegas showgirl and her terrible daughter, for my Larry McMurtry Project, literally a few minutes ago. Up next, one of two British Library Women Writers reprints and a bit of The Virago Book of Women Travellers.

    1. Those sound like good reads! Yes, I think I will stick to shorter reads this month and hope that things will go back to normal. I have quieter weeks ahead (I hope!).

  2. Now that it’s nicer out, I’ve been busier and have had less time for reading too. I hope that you find some quick reads that can pull you out of your slump-ish mood! I hope you have a great week!
