WWW Wednesday, April 17

My first time doing this weekly meme! There are 3 questions. 

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin (reread) – A buddy read on GoodReads for one of my favorite science fiction novels. A Nebula+Hugo Award Winner for Best Novel. This is my third time reading it.  
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman  by Mary Wollstonecraft (readalong with Ruth @ A Great Book Study) I will write a review when I finish, but for now I am following along with Ruths posts. I am caught up through next week. 
Why Poetry by Matthew Zapruder – An impassioned call for a return to reading poetry and an incisive argument for poetry’s accessibility to all readers, by critically acclaimed poet Matthew Zapruder. 

I Explain a Few Things: Selected Poems by Pablo Neruda — I haven’t read anything from this since Sunday, though. I will get back to it this weekend. 

What did you recently finish reading?

I wrote reviews for Monstress, vol. 2  by Marjorie Liu (graphic novel, fantasy) and The Truro Bear and Other Adventures: Poems and Essays by Mary Oliver. I still need to write a review for City of Bones by Martha Wells. All good books — the Mary Oliver book is one of my favorites. 

What do you think you’ll read next?

This weekend: 
She Had Horses by Joy Harjo (poetry collection)
finish The Left Hand of Darkness 
start As You Like It by William Shakespeare
draw another card for the Deal Me In challenge. I am more or less keeping up with this, but I haven’t been taking notes on the last few stories I read.

This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.
