WWW Wednesday | 16/09/2020

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words that highlights three questions:

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

What did you recently finish reading?

My most recently finished book was The Art of Taxidermy by Sharon Kernot. This was a novel written in verse that looks at grief and death through the eyes of 13 year old Lottie as she comes to terms with the death of her mother. Verse novels aren't usually what I reach for but I thought this was beautifully written and a great portrayal of handling the death of a loved one. I didn't really connect with the main character though and I found it quite repetitive as well.

What are you currently reading?

I've had a couple of slow days recently so I've only just picked up Man is Wolf to Man by Janusz Bardach which is my main non-fiction read for the month. This book is a memoir about Janusz and his experiences of being imprisoned in the harshest labour camp during the Nazi occupation of Poland. I'm only 26 pages in but this book is already breaking my heart but it's also incredibly enthralling so far.

Yes, I'm still listening to Tris's Book by Tamora Pierce! I only have four chapters left to listen to though so I will finish it within the next day or two!

What do you think you'll read next?

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green is next on my TBR.  I don't really have any strong feelings about this one to be honest, I've heard it's one of John Green's weaker books. I've owned it for a while now though and it is super short so I'm hoping I'll be able to speed through it.

Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail
K-19 broke his heart

When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun--but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl.

Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? What are you currently reading and hoping to pick up next? Leave a comment or link your own WWW Wednesdays below for me to check out!
