WWW Wednesday: 23 September 2020

Happy Wednesday everyone!! It has been a MINUTE since I’ve participated in WWW Wednesdays, and I definitely miss this weekly meme.

As a reminder, WWW Wednesday is a meme sponsored by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. To take part, you just have to answer the following questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you will read next?

Currently Reading

  • Each of Us a Desert by Mark Oshiro (ALC) – I’m finishing this one up now. This is such a fantastic story and I’ve been savoring it. It reminds me so much of Rivers Solomon’s The Deep (without the trauma).
  • A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik (eARC) – I’ll be honest, this one is in dangerous DNF territory. I am really not enjoying the writing. The sentences and chapters are ridiculously long. The first chapter starts with an attack from a magical being then literally takes a 20+ page info dump detour before we finally reorient ourselves to what we were talking about in the first place. I’m at 15%. I’m going to try another chapter, but if things don’t change, I’m out.

Recently Finished Reading

  • Welcome to the New World by Jake Halpern and illustrated by Michael Sloan – 4 stars. An incredible and poignant graphic novel detailing the life of refugees during Trump’s America. Check out my review here.
  • And Now She’s Gone by Rachel Howzell Hall – 4 stars. A fresh narrative in the thriller genre featuring a Black female PI who is determined to rescue battered women from their abusers. Check out my review here.
  • Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots – 4 stars. Unlike anything that I’ve read when it comes to superheroes and villains. The hench people are the expendable people who work for villains, but Anna Tromedlov shows that even the most mundane skills (data analysis) can take down superheroes. Check out my review here.
  • Dear Justyce by Nic Stone – 4.5 stars. This highly anticipated follow up to Dear Martin was everything that I could have hoped for and me. Quan’s story tore me apart. Review to come.
  • Crownchasers by Rebecca Coffindaffer – 4 stars. A high-octane space romp that is full of sarcasm and wild space adventures. This is touted as Aurora Rising meets The Hunger Games…and it’s so true. Review to come.
  • Ties That Tether by Jane Igharo – 5 stars. OMG this book. I was expecting a light rom-com, but this book had me in my feelings so hard. Review to come.
