Hello 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:
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What are you currently reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
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. 😉
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.
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!
