WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Sam at Taking On a World of Words. Three questions, three answers. Let’s go!
What did you recently finish reading?
I’ve finished quite a few things since last week, which makes me very happy indeed! Slowly closing that gap on my GoodReads goal! I finished Forever the Night by Norah Wilson and Heather Doherty, the fourth and final book of the Casters series. I am so glad I finally did it! This one has been a long time coming. I also finished How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. While it was extremely interesting and educational, it’s not necessarily a book to be “enjoyed.” Although I did enjoy it because I like learning things. Not sure exactly how I’m going to review it, although I have a few other reviews I need to get out of the way first, so I have some time to think about it. I also just finished Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein last night. What an emotional roller coaster that was!
What are you currently reading?
I am still reading The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman, although I am making very slow progress on it. Since it’s a very familiar re-read, it’s sort of become the book to read when I need to take a break from some of the heavier stuff. Does that make sense? I’m also still reading The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter, which I should hopefully finish either later today or tomorrow. It has been excellent so far and I can’t wait to see how it wraps up. Or what cliffhanger it decides to torture me with, since I know it’s the first in a series and the second book isn’t out yet. In addition to those, I have also started Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. This one is on my antiracist reading list, but it was on my TBR even before I found that list because I absolutely love Trevor Noah. I’ve only just started it, but it’s really good so far. I’m also reading Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson. This is a re-read which another attempt to complete a series, which should be easy to do since there are only two books.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Honestly, the only other book I have current plans to read next is Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. This is the next book for my #StartOnYourShelfathon TBR and I will probably start it tomorrow. And of course, I will read The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman once I finish The Subtle Knife, but that probably won’t be for a while.

Enjoy your books! I am curious about Born a Crime.
Here’s MY WWW POST
It’s really good so far!
I’m reading How To Be An AntiRacist at the moment and finding it such an interesting book. I’m glad you also found it useful. I don’t know how I’ll review it when I finish it either. I’ve seen really good reviews of Born A Crime so I hope you enjoy it.
My post: https://rathertoofondofbooks.com/2020/07/08/www-wednesdays-29/
It was an incredibly interesting book and extremely relevant right now. I have no idea how to review it though because it feels so outside my realm of expertise. This is why I don’t review a lot of non-fiction stuff here.
I find it harder to review non-fiction too. It’s always hard when it’s either someone’s life story or it’s a subject that you don’t know how to write about. I’m sure you’ll find the words.
Enjoy your reading!
Same to you! 🙂
I love how being confined to our homes allows us to finally tackle our TBR shelves. Good luck with #StartOnYourShelfathon and happy reading! xo
Here’s my WWW Wednesday post.
I haven’t been confined as much, since I work for an “essential” business, but my hours were reduced, so I’ve definitely had some extra time. 🙂
I definitely agree with your conclusion about How to be an Antiracist. I actually tried to listen to the audiobook, and I ended up just DNFing it, because while it maybe talked about important topics and discussions, it was just such a bore to listen to, unfortunately. I feel like it’s one of those books that you have to really go in wanting to learn about the topic or it’ll lose you.
I really need to read Born a Crime still, but I’m a little bitter because neither of my libraries have the audiobook, and I really want to listen to the audiobook. xD
Here’s my WWW post.
I didn’t find it boring, it was actually quite interesting and I feel like I learned a lot. But reviewing it will be difficult I think. It’s part of why I don’t review a lot of non-fiction, especially if it is something outside my experiences or expertise. If that makes sense.
Born a Crime is really good so far.
Born a Crime was excellent! And I loved Philip Pullman’s trilogy. I have Code Name Verity on my TBR and now that you have reminded me, I really want to crack into it.
Have a wonderful week!

Code Name Verity was so good. And I am enjoying my re-read of His Dark Materials. It’s been a while. 🙂
