WWW Wednesday | 30th January 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

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

This week started off as a great reading week but ended up with a bit of a reading slump due to some issues I’m having with one of my current reads. I’m also pretty tired from juggling working part time, studying, writing my PhD applications and trying to have some other sense of life outside of these things. Finding time to read is hard and my brain is very tired!

Currently Reading

the science of science fiction

 

I’m struggling so much with reading this and finding it difficult because I want to love it so much but it just doesn’t seem to be happening for me? There are some good bits in the parts that I’ve read so far, but the issues I have with it are distracting to the point where I find myself just not wanting to read it… I know that’s a sign I should DNF yet I just feel so guilty!

I did also pick up this great anthropology book from my uni library today – I thought I would just dip into it to get a feel for it, but I’ve been loving it so much I might actually read the whole of the book. It’s written in such a lovely way and explores issues of representation, subjectivity/objectivity, the presence of the anthropologist, and how personal issues come to influence our research and research interests

 

 

Recently Finished

tempests and slaughter
This book. This book. It was too good and I feel so sad that our time together is over (at least for now). Tempests and Slaughter completely took me by surprise. It was hype ARC request that I ended up not feeling motivated to read because I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it but then Tamora Pierce came along with her great writing, story and characters and I loved every aspect of it. I want my own copy of this ASAP. 

 

moonstruck

 

In an attempt to stick to one of my new years goals – read books soon after I buy them – I sat down with Moonstruck last week and finished it in one sitting. It’s such a great soft magical queer graphic novel full of cute feels, cute characters, and cute affirmations about loving yourself!

 

 

Next Read?

th outcast hours
Choosing my next read has been tough because I still feel unresolved over my current read and it’s been making me dither about my next read and when to actually start it! I should be picking up The Outcast Hours next so I can write the review in good time for its blog tour which I am part of! I might also continue reading an academic book alongside my fiction book so I have more choice of reading material to suit my moods/energy levels
