Thanks so much to Marianna @ Marianna’s Corner for introducing me to this weekly meme, hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.
Put simply, WWW Wednesday is a little dive into the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Customizing this post a bit since we’ve about come to the end of Scorpio Season and it’s nearing time for my wrap up anyway! As it stands, I have finished two of the four and am working my way through the others! So here goes:
Truth be told, I’m currently reading about eight books. But I’m only going to post on two of them today because eight is just outrageous. I am thoroughly enjoying Winter Counts so far and am about 30% of the way through. It’s heavy, but that’s to be expected given the subject matter. The prose is lovely, in any case, and I am highly invested in the story.
Listen, I have no idea what’s happening in this book. That’s on me, because I was tired when I started the thing and just know that some stuff passed over my head. The thing is, though, that I kindof don’t even care? Because Howzell Hall is such a joy to read that I wouldn’t even mind if the rest of the book was absolute trash. I love everything she writes and will stand by it forever.
This story was a total delight. You can read my full review of this book on Goodreads, though I still plan to post it here in the future as well. The short version: fat protagonists are really having a moment and I am loving the heck out of it.
I can’t say that I disliked this book. But I was less enamored with it than I was genuinely hoping to be? Having recently finished Signal to Noise, another of Moreno-Garcia’s novels, and absolutely LOVED it, I think I was just expecting more from this. It was still entertaining enough and I would still recommend. It made for a good spooky season read, indeed!
I am unveiling my Sag season reading list a wee bit early, but It’s what’s next on my list so, what the heck? Also, only six more days until the release of Ready Player Two and I am VERY excited!!!
What books are you waiting eagerly for? Have you read any of what I’ve been digging into lately? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
