WWW Wednesday | 12/05/2021

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

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished Incredible Doom by Matthew Bogart and Jesse Holden over the weekend. This was a YA graphic novel that I got as an ARC and kindly sent by Harper Collins. It revolves mainly around two teens in the 90's trying to just survive high school, form relationships and other issues at the same time as the internet is becoming a major thing. This was a lot darker then I thought it was going to be (in terms of issues such as bullying and an abusive parent being very present) but I did enjoy it a fair bit. Graphic novels are still a new format for me so it didn't wow me or anything but a good first volume.

What are you currently reading?

I began The Duke and I (Bridgertons #1) by Julia Quinn yesterday although I didn't get too far as I started feeling really sick and needed to lie down! I really did enjoy the Netflix series for what it was so I'm hoping that I'll enjoy the books just as much.

I'm about 70% into What Makes Us by Rafi Mittlefehldt and this has been a really quick read. It revolves around an a teen boy who discovers a horrifying piece of his past after an altercation during a protest goes viral. This has been a really thought provoking book so far, it deals with prejudice, identity, religion and family in a really realistic way. The characters are incredibly well constructed and it's honestly been a much better book then I initially thought it was gonna be. 

Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold by Stephen Fry update: I'm six hours in so got another 9 hours and 20 minutes to go! Still enjoying it, Stephen Fry just has a terrific narrating voice!

What do you think you'll read next?

I think I'm going to try and pick The Man in the High Castle by Philip. K. Dick back up after I accidentally stopped reading it a few months back. I got distracted by other books so not that there's some space in my reading plans I want to get back into it again. 

It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war — and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

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!
