Hello, all! Sorry I’ve been pretty scarce this last week–I’ve fully dived into Camp NaNoWriMo and my WIP. My goal is to complete 50K word draft this July, so writing as taken up a lot of my headspace. 😅
But once again, it’s been a bit since I’ve participated in a WWW Wednesday, so I wanted to quickly update you on my reading (or err, non-reading). Now instead of webcomics, TV dramas are the main loves of my distractions and lack of motivation (when I’m not writing or napping, that is 😉 ).
For those of you who don’t know: WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words where you answer 3 ‘what’ questions about your reading.
(Also, wow, apparently this reading update marks my 200th post?! It simultaneously seems like I’ve written too much and too little content to reach this number!)
What did you recently finish reading?
My reading has slowed down a bit, but the last book I finished was Girl, Serpent, Thorn back in June! I’ve already screeched about it in my last couple posts, but I’ll say it again: IT WAS SO GOOD! It’s a YA fantasy that’s simultaneously a fairytale retelling/mashup and also uniquely its own tale! It draws inspiration from Persian mythology and Zoroastrianism, contains & monsters, and features a cute sapphic rommance! I wish there had been more, and I want there to be more books like this one! You can read my full review here.
What are you currently reading?
A lot still, whoops. I’m currently buddy reading Sorcery of Thorns with Sammie @ The Bookwyrm’s Den and adoring it! I’m also buddy reading Stamped from the Beginning with my writing buddy (the audiobook is free on Spotify FYI). I, Coriander is a book that I actually picked up yesterday. I read it like 11 years ago as a child, and was actually given a copy as a gift. I was thinking about it the other day when compiling Part 2 of my favorite fantasy standalones and decided to go back and reread it! AND finally, I still keep meaning to go back and finish The Silmarillion and The Unspoken Name (which I haven’t touched in, erm, months).
What do you think you’ll read next?
Great question. Hopefully some ARCs?? I’m participating in the blog tour for Lobizona in early August, so I need to make sure I pick it up soon. Ballistic is an unrequested ARC I was sent by 47North. It technically released in May, but I didn’t finish the first book until last month, so I want to make sure I continue on with the series soon.
