WWW Wednesday #1

Hey y’all! 

I have decided to start participating in WWW Wednesday to better keep up with posting regularly and keep track of my reading. WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. 

To participate, all you have to do is answer 3 questions and link back to Sam’s page.

3 questions: 

  1. What are you currently reading? 
  2. What have you finished recently? 
  3. What are you planning on reading next? 

what are you currently reading?

Right now, I am in the middle of 3 books: Beowulf // (Seamus Heaney translation), She is Stong, But She is Tired // R.H Sin, and Mortal Remains // Mary Anne Fraser. 

Beowulf was assigned for one of my English classes for university. In total honesty, we have surpassed discussion on this work, but I am determined to finish it. I know that most American high schools teach an abridged version of Beowulf in 12th grade; mine did as well, but I am reading the poem in its entirity for the sheer pride that I did it. 

She is Strong, but She is Tired is a poetry collection written by RH Sin, and I love it. Personally, I use poetry as a sort of journal prompt where I will comment and annotate the poems, but they are all extremely personal insights. For this reason, I am slowly making my way through it. 

Mortal Remains by Mary Anne Fraser was kindly gifted to me by the publisher, and I do plan on reviewing it as soon as I am finished. So far, I am enjoying it and the storyline is super interesting. I am not the biggest fan of the writing style, but it looks to me that this is a whole different type of novel than the author typically writes. Until I finish, I am withholding my full thoughts, so be on the look out for that review!

what have you finished recently?

Nothing. I mean, I guess I finished The Shining by Stephen King relatively recently…about a week or two ago, but that wasn’t super recent. Lately, I have just been drowning in school work and academic reading that I put off pleasure reading, but that stops here!

what are you planning on reading next?

After I finish Mortal Remains I am planning on reading, Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender and Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Theifby Rick Riordan for my Adolescent Literature class. 

What are y’all planning on reading this week? Anything that should be on my radar? 

Let me know!
