WWW Wednesday 02/16/2022

Instead of blogging, I have been very busy with several performances, a playwriting contest, a book-related contest, and more. However, I have managed to write a WWW Wednesday this week, a challenge hosted by the blog Taking On a World of Words.


Answer the three Ws:

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

Currently Reading

I am currently reading a lot. Here they are, in order of how much I am enjoying them from most to least.

I don’t love any of these books so far, but the best one is the first book of the Renegades trilogy by Marissa Meyer. I also like The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller, which I’ve been slowly reading since September.

For school, I’m reading Trapped: How the World Rescued 33 Miners From 2,000 Feet Below the Chilean Desert by Marc Aronson. It’s interesting, but I can’t purely enjoy it since I have to annotate and log my reading.

A friend recommended the YA novel Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin, which I find neither bad nor good. I’m also only twenty pages in.

Horrid is a little boring but tolerable so far. I need to finish it by this Monday.

Finally, I am almost done with Furia by Yamile Saied Méndez, the book in my Reading Next section for WWW Wednesday two weeks ago. It’s school-related, so I can’t abandon it, but I can’t wait to be done with it.

Recently Finished

Yesterday I brought home a considerable stack of books, mostly graphic novels, from the library. Since then I have finished Kiss Number 8 by Colleen AF Venable and Ellen T. Crenshaw and Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki and Rosemary Valero-O’Connell.

Reading Next

Once I’m completely done with the books for the competition, and I finish Renegades, I’ll probably continue the series with Archenemies.

Trapped is not even 150 pages, so I will probably finish it before the deadline. After that I’ll need to pick another book from the list of available options for that class, and I will probably go with The Borden Murders: Lizzie Borden and the Trial of the Century by Sarah Miller.

Not to mention the fifteen books to go in my most recent library haul, which includes some graphic adaptations of books like Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds, Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys (a beautiful book that still haunts me), and The Odyssey by Homer.
