WWW Wednesday – April 5, 2023


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

American PsychoI’m still chipping away at American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis; I haven’t made crazy progress, but it feels surprisingly steady considering the content of the novel thus far. I really am surprised with how much I have managed to enjoy reading through the book up to this point, as a lot of the prose is dedicated to his pathological fixation on superficial qualities and status. I read every word, but having no frame of reference for brand names and designs of suits, my brain kind of glosses over it. Never has the mundane been so alienating, yet I am actually paying attention to the story and I’m not bored. It’s very strange. He has also performed some heinous acts of violence since my last update, which were quite upsetting but not surprising considering Bateman’s character. Seems he’s been active from the start.

Recently Finished

Adventure Time FinnThe other night I finished reading through Adventure Time: Finn by various authors, which I’m technically borrowing from a friend. I’m in the middle of rewatching the series and decided I’d like to check this graphic novel out after we found it at a thrift store. This book is a selection of issues from the Adventure Time comic book series focused on the title character, so a best-of collection of sorts, including some authors I’m familiar with such as Noelle Stevenson. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I’d hoped I would, though one of the bigger stories was pretty interesting. I’m not sure what it is, but it feels to me like something is lost without this world being animated and voice acted, so other than another volume I’m particularly keen on reading, I don’t think reading from these comics will be a regular thing for me.

Reading Next

No real plans for what I’m reading next this week. Kind of just want to focus on what I’ve already got going on.

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