Hello, friends! It’s time for another WWW Wednesday!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam@Taking on a World of Words.
To participate, just answer the three questions below and link back to her or put the link to your post in the comment section of her blog so that others can look at your answers!
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
As I said earlier, I have been a abit scatterbrained since last weekend. Although I don’t think I’m not getting into a reading slump, I picked up Muriel Spark, The Public Image and then put it back on my shelf. And then I picked up The Alchemist once again since my Twitter friend said that she enjoyed reading it. It wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy The Public Image, but I didn’t get to fly through it as quickly as I had expected, I decided to put it on hold for now and then tackle The Alchemist instead.
As for Best Boy, I’ve been listening to the audiobook and enjoying it so far. But there are scenes that I had a hard time deciphering what the narrator is saying because the narrator employs a heavy accent to play a particular role in the book, so I ordered a paperback at Amazon Japan and am waiting for it to arrive right now. Once it arrives, I am going to physically read it while listening to the audiobook to better appreciate the book, so it’s going to take a while to finish the book, I suppose.
From my last update, I managed to finish four books 🙂 But then again, half of them are really short, like around 100 to 200 pages so there’s not much to speak of. I really enjoyed reading them, especially Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder was unexepctedly good. Unlike most cozy mysteries that I have read in the past couple of years, this book had more than 300 pages and I assume that was why I enjoyed this book so much. The plot was well-contemplated and crafted, the characters are all vivid as well. My favorite goes to By Your Side though, again, I enjoyed most of them 🙂

I wasn’t expecting (at all) that my request for NetGalley would be approved, but my goodness, I got an ARC for Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng that’s coming out on September 12th!!!
Once I’ve finished The Alchemist, I’ll jump right into this book and write a review, and THEN I think I’ll be ready for my long-anticipated read, World Without End by Ken Follett! and Obsession by Amanda Robson that I mentioned in my Goodreads Monday. I cannot wait to see how it goes!
That’s it for today.
