WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking On a World of Words. Every Wednesday, the posters discuss 3 Ws:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
This is my first time participating in WWW Wednesday! I’m a student, and unfortunately, I haven’t been doing as much reading as I would like to the past few months. But it’s summertime at last! I’ll be working full time, but I know I’ll have more time to read again, and I can’t wait to catch up.
What are you currently reading?
- Blood and Money by Thomas Thompson: I started this book on a plane last week, on my way to visit my family. Unfortunately… I left my Kindle at my parents’ house, so I won’t be reading more of this book until my Mom mails my Kindle to me. I thought I was smart to charge my Kindle before heading to the airport, but I ended up leaving it plugged in to the wall. I am so irritated with myself! Have you ever done anything like that? Anyway… I was really enjoying this book. It’s a fantastic true crime piece, and I can’t wait to get back into it!
- On Immunity by Eula Biss: This book had the same fate as Blood and Money! And I was really enjoying this one, too. I’ll be working in public health this summer, and I know that a big part of my work will be about vaccination policies. I picked this book up because I thought it would be a nice little primer about vaccines, but it’s more like a collection of essays about the author’s decision to vaccinate her son. We’ll see…
- The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski: I am LOVING this book! It’s a collection of short stories about the Witcher (who you might know from the video games). I’ll definitely be reading the rest of this series!
- The Perfect Nanny by Leila Slimani: I picked this short little book up after I listened to a NYT Book Review podcast hailing it as one of the best novels of 2018. I’m honestly not that impressed so far. It’s creepy, I guess, but slow.
- Perfect Murder, Perfect Town by Lawrence Schiller: Okay, I’ve been working on this book for months. It’s so long, and it really doesn’t have to be. I almost wish I’d chosen a different book about the John Benet Ramsey case.
- Playing Big by Tara Mohr: I read the first few chapters of this book a couple months ago and haven’t felt like reading more, but it’s still on the stack of books on my nightstand, so I guess I’m technically still reading it. It’s not for me.
- The Butterfly Mosque by G. Willow Wilson: I LOVE G. Willow Wilson, and I love reading about world religions, so this book is doubly amazing! I really should have finished this by now, though.
What did you recently finish reading?
- Public Health Law in a Nutshell by James G. Hodge, Jr.: I read this book in anticipation of starting my new job! It’s an excellent introduction to the field. I’ll absolutely be referencing it at work all summer.
- Saga, Volume 7 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples: Saga is one of the best things I have ever read. Period. This wasn’t my favorite book in the series, but it was still amazing.
- Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley: Fantastic YA novel. You can read my full review here!
What do you think you’ll read next?
I wish I knew! My TBR is currently 1,696 books deep. It increases almost every day as I hear about new books I want to read. Do you have that problem, too? However, I think I have my next reads narrowed down:
- In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire: I love the Wayward Children series, but I’m been low-key dreading reading this book because I didn’t love the last book in the series. We’ll see.
- The Demonologist by Gerald Brittle: I’ve been dying to read this book. I love horror movies, and The Conjuring is such a fun movie… I can’t wait to read about the real couple who inspired the film! The reviews are mixed, which worries me, but I’m staying positive!
- The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan: Please give me all the LGBTQ YA novels. The reviews are mixed on this one, too, but I finally got my copy from the library, and I’m excited to read it.
- The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf: The reviews for this book are AMAZING. Another library book I can’t wait to read!
This is such a fun tag, and I’m glad that I got to participate this week! I can’t wait to read everyone else’s responses. Happy reading!
