Hi there! I am finally now reading non-OBOB books. The reason is sad though, the state competition was canceled because of the coronavirus. So was basically everything else, including school which has been canceled for me the 28th. Of April. The one good side to that however is that I am having a lot of time to read and to write, so that is
good great amazingly fantastic. Anyways, here is my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday! WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words, and how it works is each week I answer three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading The Beginning of Everything, by Robyn Schneider, The Maze of Bones, by Rick Riordan, the Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho and Anne Frank, la vie en cachette, by Johanna Hurwitz.
The Beginning of Everything I kind of randomly picked up because I was looking for a book to read on my kindle (which is actually the first book I’ve read on my kindle in a really long time) and I’m actually really enjoying it!
I started to read The Alchemist, which I received as a birthday present back in October. Well, I’ve read a few chapters so far and it’s ok. I’ll finish it because I want to see how it ends, and because it isn’t too long, but I’m not really enjoying it a lot.
I just picked up The Maze of Bones because I was trying to find an audiobook to listen to and the 39 clues series is 1) really long and 2) has a really good narrator.
The book I’m reading about Anne Frank I’m actually reading for school, (which is why it’s in French; I’m in a French immersion program) so I’m not actually making any progress on it. That’s because my school’s closed until April 28! I don’t know when I’ll finish reading this!!!!!
What did you recently finish reading?
I recently finished reading The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl, by Stacy McAnulty, Before We Were Free, by Julia Alvarez, Black Radishes, by Susan Lynn Meyer, The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill, Turtle in Paradise, by Jennifer L. Holm, and Like the Willow Tree, by Lois Lowry. Some of these are from my winter TBR from a while ago, so I wanted to finish as many of those as I could. I also wrote of a review of The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl, which I very much enjoyed.
If you want to see all the books I’ve read so far this year, check out my Goodreads, where I (mostly) keep up with all the books I read. Because I’ve probably left something out and I don’t feel like being really accurate with my own reading.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Next. Hmmm. Well I want to read a bunch of the books I’ve been wanting to read but haven’t read but that I can’t name right now but that I’ll think of later. I also want to read Children of Ash and Elm, by Neil Price. I requested this book in Netgalley and as I’m still figuring it out, I didn’t realize exactly what it was about. This book is a *nonfiction, adult book about history. I’ll see how well I get through it! I’m actually interested for it, because it’s about the vikings and I have viking ancestors!!!
*I actually don’t enjoy nonfiction books that much usually and I don’t usually enjoy adult books, but I wan’t to give it a try.
A little general update:
As I mentioned, along with all the other schools in Oregon, where I live, my school is closed until April 28. Which is crazy. Really really crazy. Looking on the good side of this, I am going to try to use this time to read more and to write more! I am going to try and post more reviews, and also other non weekly meme posts as well.
You know how I was talking about my favorite formats of books? Well, although it is my favorite format, I only have a large yet limited supply of physical books (and I’m staying away from physical libraries because of everything that’s happening), and I have a kindle that I for some reason (I really have no idea) rarely use anymore, so I am going to be reading a lot more e-books. Which is a good thing I’ve been wanting to do for a while. E-books are great!
I also just got a Netgalley account, and I have mostly figured that out. Anyways, I’m really excited for that because I think that it’s really cool that book bloggers have the opportunity to get advanced reader copies!!! I also want to try and read more new releases. I haven’t ever (before the last few weeks/months) payed attention to new books coming out, but now that I am, I just want to read them.
Have you read any of the books I mentioned? How is the coronavirus affecting you? Is your school, or work canceled? Is it online now? Chat with me in the comments below!
