Hey everyone, I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I last wrote a blog post! I’ve been struggling a lot the past couple of weeks, I had to disconnect from social media outlets for a little while (I’m looking at you twitter) and I’ve even struggled to post on Instagram. I’ve left some engagement groups on the platform to just get back to posting for me, because honestly I felt like I was just logging into IG to do admin rather than enjoy content. I’m still not back to feeling fully part of things but i wanted to post today and say a huge thank you to everyone who has been stopping by in that time! I’m back to a WWW Wednesday today for a mid month catch up with where my reading is at!
Whilst the WWW tag isn’t new, I’ve picked it up from the lovely Jemma at Fantastic Books and Where to Find Them!
What am I currently Reading
I’m currently reading Vengeful by V.E Schwab, this is my monthly buddy read with @vegan_shiftworker – you’ve guessed it, we read Vicious last month! We couldn’t wait to dive back into the characters and we’re absolutely loving it, it’s so hard to put down at the end of our nightly chapters!
What did I Recently Finish Reading
In support of #BLM I featured black authors throughout my instagram last week, I changed up my set tbr to read Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron, I’m so glad I did because it was a fantastic book and I’m so cross with myself that it’s been sat on my shelf for so long. The only bonus of taking a bit of time to get to a book is that there’s less time to wait until the next one comes out! I also wanted to spend some time educating myself about black lives matter, I saw a number of books being circulated as ones to read to help understand the issues but I chose to read Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge. Honestly it’s the most eye opening book I think I’ve ever read, I’ve already adjusted my viewpoints of a number of issues and fully understand white privilege. I will continue to educate and White Fragility is next on my list.
What do I Think I’ll Read Next
I’ve tried hard to avoid spoilers, although I’ve fallen foul of one, so it’s time to read Aurora Burning so I can join in with discussions rather than running and hiding from them! I adored Aurora Rising last year and I love a rag tag team and with mention of a heist again too I really can’t wait to jump back into this universe!
What are your WWW’s? Let me know!!
