WWW Wednesday – May 3, 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 coming up on the last 100 pages of American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis, and I’m really wanting to get this book over with. I’ve said it before, there’s no denying Ellis’s talent as an author, but I am really finding this book to be a chore, which is troubling in a book with such recognizable quality. I’m not sure I’ve ever been confronted before with a book so unpleasant yet well written. I understand that the unpleasantness is part of the point, but I still have my limits, especially with it being so character focused. I’m just hoping something comes up in the narrative by the end to tie everything together in a way that I’ll like. I can’t say with certainty that I’ll even be done by next week though, so it seems I’m stuck with it still for a while yet. This one is going to be rather difficult to review, though I can already imagine how I will rate it.

Recently Finished

Despite not having anything to post about last week, I still haven’t finished reading anything else.

Reading Next

I still mean to read Spores by Joshua Barkman and Tombs by Junji Ito sometime soon, I just need to make a point of actually starting them. Although, I suppose if I’m wanting to focus on finishing American Psycho that I shouldn’t sacrifice reading time for anything else right now.

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