WWW Wednesday: January 4, 2022

I know, I know, I haven’t posted a book review in a hot second. That’s what the end of a year and holiday busy-ness and 2022 wrap-ups will do to a blog! I’ll have a book review up next week, I promise.

Anyway, for those who are unfamiliar, WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme revived and hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

The idea is to answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses.

What are you currently reading?

What have you just finished reading?

What are you going to read next?

Currently Reading

Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil GaimanThe Woman They Could Not Silence by Kate Moore

Stunningly, I’m currently reading more than a couple of books. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I don’t typically read middle grade books, but I loved the cover of OOD AND THE FROST GIANTS. Since this is a book I physically own, it will go toward Project Backlist by Kal @ Reader Voracious.

I started THE WOMAN THEY COULD NOT SILENCE because I needed another “Available Now” book on audio from the library. It helps the time go by when enduring chores. I read RADIUM GIRLS by the same author years ago and found it fascinating. So why not try another?

Lastly, I technically started THE SUBTLE KNIFE last month and, um, I’m still not very far. But I want to finish the series so I can finally watch the HBO adaptation.

Recently Finished

I finished WHAT’S THE T? by Juno Dawson over the weekend. I don’t feel qualified to write an official review of this book. I found it informative as an ally. But ultimately I think it’s more of an approachable guide for trans individuals, hence its subtitle: THE GUIDE TO ALL THINGS TRANS AND/OR NONBINARY.

I also listened to the audiobook of ICE PLANET BARBARIANS by Ruby Dixon. I can’t believe I just typed that sentence. Truly, I had absolutely no plans to read this because it’s not my jam. But I really needed something “Available Now” on Libby to listen to while I primed our hallway. And, surprisingly, this was near the top of that list (unsorted for genre). It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but it was certainly entertaining and helped the time spent painting fly by!

Reading Next

I think I’m going to take another try with THE STARS UNDYING. If anything it will fulfill a prompt in the January TBR Challenge I joined on StoryGraph. This challenge is organized by Books Are 42, from.TBR.to.READtheartsy_bookworm88, and hplreads.

  1. Best of luck with the His Dark Materials series haha. I gave up at the beginning of the third book. Loved the first, but the series dragged – and got a little bizarre to me – as it went on. However, the show looks cool and I do love Lin Manuel Miranda, so I might give it a go and see if I enjoy it more than the books (it happens. Rarely, but it happens haha).

    1. Thanks! The beginning of The Subtle Knife is a bit confusing because it’s not really where we left off in The Golden Compass. But I’ll roll with it. Also, I didn’t know Lin Manuel Miranda is involved with HBO’s HDM adaptation…just learned something new! I’ve heard good things about the show from friends, so I suppose you should give it a try, haha.

  2. I’ve been curious about that HBO adaptation too and would love to dive into the books before…eventually. I hope you have a good time reading them! Happy reading, Celeste. 🙂
