WWW Wednesday – August 19, 2020

www_wednesdays

WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme run by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Check out her post and others over on her blog!

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Currently Reading

The Long Way to a Small Angry PlanetRegretfully, I haven’t read much more of The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers since last week. Not a big week for reading overall, really. A lot of energy was being put into my review of Into the Unbounded Night, which took longer than I thought. Nevertheless, what I did read of Chambers’s book continued to be enjoyable; I got a firsthand account of what creating a tunnel in space is like, which sounds like a trippy and horrifying non-Euclidean experience. I also got to meet the last crew member finally, who seemed surprisingly mellow considering the unique way their brain works. As a final aside, the way the food is described in this book continually makes me hungry for the strange space delicacies described. It’s not fair.


Recently Finished

Nothing this week, I’m afraid. See above. Also, new WP editor is the devil.


Reading Next

Venus in the Blind Spot

I’ve procrastinated reading any Star Wars comic books this past week, and they’re likely going to have to wait a little longer, because Venus in the Blind Spot by Junji Ito has come out this week. It’s finally another English collection of his short stories, and I expect to be picking up my copy later today. I’m not sure which stories are included in this collection, except for “The Enigma of Amigara Fault”, which was included in Gyo. I’m really excited to get this book read and reviewed soon. Maybe I’ll squeeze in some Star Wars after all too, to make up for a lackluster week.

Until next week, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.

  1. Reading about fictional foods makes me so hungry too! Then there’s books like Dune, which make me feel bad about drinking water while reading.🤷🏻‍♀️ Depending on the way you’re hosted there should be a classic editor plugin if you want that back.
    I also haven’t tried any of Junji Ito’s work yet, but I definitely want to – I’m curious to hear your thoughts on Venus in the Blind Spot!

    • I did use the classic plugin, but there were still some hurdles to figure out that I just didn’t have any patience for at the time. If you’re not sure where to start with Junji Ito, the collection Shiver is a pretty good place to start at. Uzumaki or Tomie are also really great if you’re looking for something longer.

  2. My last read had a lot of delicacies too which really made me want to try all sorts of new dishes. This pandemic stopped me though. 😅 Hope you enjoy your books. Happy Reading.
