WWW Wednesday – June 22, 2022

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 Dictionary of Obscure SorrowsUnfortunately, I didn’t get a whole lot of reading done this past week. I’m not sure what happened, but all of the potential reading time just slipped through my fingers. I’ve been feeling a little burnt out, so I guess I gave that time to more carefree hobbies. I only read about 20 pages of Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson since last week, so I don’t really have much more to say about it. I really want to make a push to finish this book in particular before June is done, so I’ll try to make a greater effort to prioritize it. I didn’t pick up The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows by John Koenig  at all either, though I do have another entry saved from my last reading, so I can share another word.

This week, the word is solysium, “the unhinged delirium of being alone for an extended period of time—feeling the hours stretch into days until a weird little culture begins to form inside your head, with its own superstitions and alternate histories and a half-mumbled dialect all your own—whose freewheeling absurdity feels oddly liberating but makes it that much harder to reacclimate to the strictures and ambiguities of normal social life.”


Recently Finished

Nothing again. This is a really unfortunate trend.


Reading Next

I still want to read the first volume of Animosity by Marguerite Bennett et al. and start Stories of Jedi and Sith. I’ll probably need to start thinking about whatever will properly follow Son of a Trickster too, I just need to get my in gear with what I’m currently reading.

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