It’s WWW Wednesday! – 1/10/2018

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words

The 3 Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty. It’s the first book in The Daevabad Trilogy.

I spotted this book while perusing the pop-up shop at The Bookery, an independent bookstore coming to Manchester this spring! I actually bought it for my sister-in-law for Christmas (using the “I want to read it, so she’ll want to read it” logic). But about a week after Christmas, I caved and bought it on my Kindle.

I only had a few minutes to start it on Sunday morning, but I was hooked after the first few pages! The City of Brass is a fantasy novel set in 18th-century Cairo. I’ve had a minor obsession with Egyptian culture since I was a child, so this was really the perfect marriage of some of my interests.

I’ll be sure to post my review when I’m finished!

 


What did you recently finish reading?

I just finished re-reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury over the weekend.

It had been more than a decade since I read this in high school (eek — that’s a long time!), and although I remember liking it in high school, I actually think I liked it more this time around.

Even though it was terrifying. Highly recommended to ANYONE. Read my review here.


What do you think you’ll read next?

26755479_10215080631349295_1843687110_nThe next book I plan on reading the princess saves herself in this one by Amanda Lovelace.

“Ah, life- the thing that happens to us while we’re off somewhere else blowing on dandelions & wishing ourselves into the pages of our favorite fairy tales.”

A poetry collection divided into four different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, & you. the princess, the damsel, & the queen piece together the life of the author in three stages, while you serves as a note to the reader & all of humankind. Explores life & all of its love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, & inspirations.

The black and white contrast of the cover and the title just grabbed me on this one while I was browsing Barnes and Noble with Sarah on Monday.

I paged through it briefly and instantly HAD to buy it. It’s a little different from my usual reads as I’m not typically into nonfiction, but I do love poetry!

Stay tuned for my thoughts!
