Reading is way slower than I expected, but I am enjoying my reads, so I won’t complain too much! Also, the weather had turned lovely and summery! Finally!
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?
What am I currently reading?
My main read is Gardens of Delight by Erica James. I am not even halfway and it’s a 500-page book. I kind of expected this to be to be a simple chick lit and I guess it is, but there is a whole host of characters and it’s almost like three books rolled into one. So far it’s a joy to read actually. I’m just not reading that much in general, but I am making an effort today to actually sit down and read a good chunk. I’ve just been busy!
My side read is Liberté, Égalité, Phoenix!, which is a book chronicling the career of French band Phoenix, who I love a lot. It’s told in interview style and actually really works. The chapters are the albums and they talk about making the albums and what happened when they came out, even winning a Grammy! It’s a really fun book to read and a gorgeous one too. It’s almost coffee table size and has lovely pictures throughout.
Finally, I am still listening to Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. I think I will be able to finish that one this week.
What have I recently finished reading?
I only finished one book, which was A Lullaby in the Desert by Mojgan Azar. That was a really impressive read that I can’t quite shake it off yet. It tells the story of a female refugee, and it was not an easy read by any means, but it I am very glad I read this and would highly recommend it.
What will I read next?
Because of my slow reading lately, I am a bit behind with most things, but the weather has picked up and I am sure I will spend more time sitting outside reading. That’s the ideal anyway. I will keep mood reading, but I did make a Summer TBR of books I’d like to get to. I also got one new book in this week that I would really like to get to sooner rather than later.
