Thank you again to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words for hosting this weekly meme. I’m pretty sure you all know the drill by now, but in case you don’t and you want to join, here are the three questions we always answer:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you will read next?
- I Love You So Mochi – Sarah Kuhn
- All I’ve Wanted All I’ve Needed – A. E. Valdez
- Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow – Gabrielle Zevin
- Bow Before the Elf Queen – J. M. Kearl
- A Rover’s Story – Jasmine Warga
Zevin’s novel is still giving me a hard time. I may have to switch to the audiobook and see if that will help me get through it but right now I’m still working on the hardcover. It’s okay though… but right now I’m just not feeling it.
I’m really enjoying Warga’s novel though! It’s a potential BOB book and I would totally want to read it with the middle school kids. I love how Warga makes Res seem like the kind of Rover that is able to have some human thoughts and it was just absolutely adorable! I’m not done with it yet but I’m really enjoying it. So that’s one book that I’m at least enjoying right now, which is great to hear.
- Never Look Back – Lilliam Rivera
- Rosewood: A Midsummer Meet Cute – Sayantani DasGupta
- Letters from Cuba – Ruth Behar
I listened to two amazing books this past week as well that I absolutely adored. One of them is BOB Research and the other one was for the Astrology readathon, which I’m glad that I was able to get through. I need to get through the next set of books for the Astrology readathon and I’m super proud of myself for keeping up with my goal so far.
Speaking of keeping up with goals though, I’m really proud of myself for keeping up with tracking my reads for the year as well. Both on the spreadsheet I’m using and in my physical reading journal. This is the first time that I’ve actually keeping up for almost half the year without totally giving up, so that’s absolutely amazing! I plan on continuing to keep up, so I hope to be able to share my progress as the months go by.
- Together We Burn – Isabel Ibanez
- She is a Haunting – Trang Thanh Tran
- The Fraud Squad – Kyla Zhao
- Spin the Dawn – Elizabeth Lim
I haven’t changed my list. I really want to get through these this month. It may be the 10th day of the month but my goal is to at least get through three of these if possible. Since I’m going to listen to three of them, I should be able to get through them fairly quickly. I’m debating on whether I should just set aside Tomorrow x3 since I’m not into it like I want to.
What do you think?
Oh dear. This week is definitely a tough one. I need to get into writing my reviews again. I just need to do it. You know? Just sit down and write what I can. I think again I’m thinking too much and putting too much into it. Just take some time to sit and write and then I’ll slowly and surely catch up.
I also have an interview for an internal position at the library on Friday and I need to work on a presentation for the meeting. It’s going to be interesting since right after my interview I need to go into work. I don’t know if I really want this job, but I want to see if I have what it takes. I love my position right now honestly, but I wanted to see if I wanted to shift gears. I’m still going to give it my all, no matter what. I don’t want to fail just because I’m not sure if I want it.
Okay friends, I’ll see you when I can.
One thought on “WWW Wednesday | 10 May 2023”
Best of luck with the job interview! I hope you can at least figure out if that’s a direction you want to go. And for the book reviews, sometimes writing short mini-reviews works for me to help me get back into the habit. It might work for you, too.
