WWW Wednesday is a book blog meme hosted by Taking On A World of Words where book bloggers answer these questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What are you reading next?
- What did you just finish reading?
I finally finished something after two weeks of July going by! Woo! I don’t know why it took me so long to read this book even though I really loved it. Actually, I do know why; I haven’t been reading as much as usual because I haven’t been reading in the morning before work. Anyway. THE GRAVITY OF US is queer and cosmic and amazing; I loved all the amateur reporting stuff that Cal did and thought it was so cool, and the space stuff was cool, and I shipped the ship so freaking much and just…this book was perfection. I loved it so much. I’m so happy I got a signed copy at Book Expo that I can treasure forever.
I also read a couple of picture books since I am transferring to children’s librarianship that one of my colleagues recommended and really enjoyed them. You can read more about those on my new children’s book-focused Instagram.
I am doing a lot again and trying to read three books at once even though I’ve barely been reading over the past few weeks. Here’s what I’ve been reading:
- Lumberjanes | Mariko Tamaki – this is a kids’ chapter book based on the graphic novel series LUMBERJANES which is all about flora, fauna, and friendship! The Lumberjanes are serious #friendshipgoals. Also it’s queer.
- The Raven Boys | Maggie Stiefvater – I’m giving this one a try again and am liking it so far. I was skeptical about it for a long time and avoided it because I HATED another one of the author’s series, SHIVER, but I seem to be having better luck with this series.
- Daisy Jones and the Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid – I am still reading this one because as previously mentioned I have not been reading a lot. I REALLY need to fix that.
I’m still planning to read THE WEDDING DATE, since I could use a dash of romance in my reading life. I’m also planning to read my library copy of Connie Glynn’s first kid’s book, UNDERCOVER PRINCESS, which is about a princess and a normal girl who switch places at a boarding school.
