WWW Wednesday 15-Jan-2020

img_1384-0Hello there! Welcome to my first WWW Wednesday this year, hosted by Sam from Taking On A World of Words. The last time I did this was a month ago, I was, and I am still, very busy at work and life that I  only get to read on whatever little free time I get. By the way, happy new year homo sapiens! I hope you all started the year great! Anyways, let’s get started.

As usual, just answer the three W questions:

  1. What did you recently finish reading?
  2. What are you currently reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Recently Finished:

I enjoyed A Christmas Carol and I really think this story is Christmas. Wonderful read. Kitchen is my second Banana Yoshimoto work, The Lake being the first. Character-focused and great writing. The Setting Sun is a first for me from Osamu Dazai. A very interesting read despite the absence of action. Lastly, The Driver’s Seat, another first, from Muriel Spark. I’ve got mixed feelings on this one, it was suspenseful and funny, but there’s something ugly about it, I don’t know. Let’s see when I write a review later. πŸ˜‰

Currently Reading:

It’s taking me too long to finish The Russian Concubine. It’s an interesting story but it gets slow on some part that I somehow lose interest reading. I’m 80% through it, though, so hopefully, I could finish it this week. I’ve also started with a few pages of Half of a Yellow Sun and I think I will greatly enjoy this book.

Up next:

I’m supposed to include A Dance with Dragons here as I plan to resume reading it but thought it better to put it on hold for now. Maybe I’ll get to it around the second quarter of the year. One of my reading goals this year is to read at least 5 non-fictions because I seem to neglect this genre. And so I think, The Story of My Life by Helen Keller is a good start. Also, I am looking forward to another historical fiction (my favorite genre), The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.

I’d be glad to know what you’re reading, what you’ve just finished and what you plan to read next so drop a link so I can check them out or share them on the comments section.

Happy reading, homo sapiens!

  1. Hello, Half of A Yellow Sun, is a good one, you’d enjoy it. I’m currently reading ‘The Leader Who Had No Title” by Robin Sharma. Before this, I read “The Introvert’s Edge” by Mathew Pollard. I hope to get to more lighter reads next month.

  2. Sounds like you’ve had a great reading week! I recently read the Afterlife of Holly Chase, which is inspired by a Christmas Carol. I think next christmas I might have to try out the original! I loved two of Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie’s books last year so I really want to read some more by her this year. Have a great week! πŸ™‚

  4. I hope you enjoy The Tattooist πŸ™‚ I’ve always wanted to explore Yoshimoto but with the number of books in my book pile (and no Yoshimoto), I think she will have to wait. LOL. I hope you enjoy Half of a Yellow Sun, it belongs to your favorite genre. πŸ™‚

    Happy reading!

    1. I’ve been wanting to read The Tattooist for a long time but something always gets in the way so I’ll make sure I’ll read it next.
      Too bad for Yoshimoto, she has to wait a bit more, huh? πŸ˜‰
      I’ve only started with a few pages of Half of a Yellow Sun and I really think I’m gonna enjoy it.

      Thanks for visiting and happy reading to you, too! πŸ™‚
