WWW Wednesday – May 12, 2021

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

ThePrincessDiaristI’m a good 70% of the way through The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher. I’d have liked to have had it done, but some personal plans got in the way of any further reading time (not that I’m complaining). I’ve got a mix of emotions about this book. On the one hand I’m really enjoying it as a rather frank memoir about a young person who grew up around Hollywood stardom having her own whirlwind experiences on the set of a film she had no idea would become so big. On the other hand, I feel like there was some sleight of hand here, because it’s much more about her affair with Harrison Ford and what she recalls of their relationship than it is her experiences around the film, which is what I was expecting. I am enjoying it regardless, but I can’t help but feel misled.


Recently Finished

Alas, nothing this week.👻 I really ought to get back to reading comic books. I’m really letting those slide now…


Reading Next

Doctor Aphra A Rogue's EndI’ve yet to start those High Republic comics yet, which I’ll certainly get to, but I think I’ll also read the final two volumes of Doctor Aphra by Simon Spurrier et al, Unspeakable Rebel Superweapon and A Rogue’s End. These are the last two volumes in the first series about the character. There’s a whole other series to start, which I believe began in 2020, but I really need to finish this up first. I feel much more comfortable letting a new series languish than one I’ve been in the middle of for years.

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