Hello, hello and welcome back to another episode of WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words, which means I’ll be answering these questions:
- What did you read last?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you read next?
Wow, so you know how I’ve been reading like crazy for the past two weeks? I finally met my match and I think I’m in a bit of a smol slump or something like that! And I’m pretty sure it’s all thanks to the one book I managed to finish (although I did DNF a book before finishing this). But back to the book I read: it was EPIC and it’s one of my top reads this year and perhaps one of my favourite fantasies ever? You might’ve seen me gushing on Twitter but if you didn’t, the book I read was The Poppy War (★★★★★ – obvi). Believe the hype, friends, because it is so freaking real! I wasn’t ready for how amazing this book would be. I also wrote the longest ass review I have ever written and I will be posting it at some point, but just know, this book was fantabulous. Although I do warn that there’s about a million CW/TW to consider before picking it up. Kuang does not shy away from the horrors and violence of war and at times it was sickeningly a lot.
I had a ton of books on my ‘currently reading’ list last week, but I put them all aside to focus on Tristan Strong Punches A Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia. It’s an awesome middle grade fiction full of African Gods and African-American folklore and it’s *chefs kiss*. Gimme more of these Gods and these folktales, please! What I find funny is that I’ve never heard of these Gods and folktales before (save for Anansi) but their names were somehow familiar to me. Sammie has been raving about it for ages and now that I’ve finally picked it up I absolutely get her love for this book!
Blog tour reads. Blog tour reads. Blog tour reads.
I have quite a few coming up, especially in October and I can’t believe it’s already almost the last week of September?! 2020 is speeding by 🙈
How is your reading week going and what are you currently reading? Hope the rest of your week goes well!
