WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday May 29, 2019

Today was my weekly grocery shopping day, so that means it’s time for another WWW Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Thanks for hosting, Sam!

(Also, I just remembered it’s WWW Wednesday. Just as my daughter started to recover from what was eventually diagnosed as a sinus infection, I started my downhill slide and ended up coming home from the doctor with two prescriptions yesterday. The three day weekend was no fun, and it’s been a looooooooooooooooong few weeks around here. I’m SO far behind on blog-related stuff, so if I owe you a post, I WILL get to it; I haven’t forgotten anything, I’m just sick and in pain. Anyhoo.)

WWW Wednesday is a superfun bookish meme all about answering three bookish questions:

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

Let’s get this party started!

What are you currently reading?

I’m a little over halfway through The Butterfly Mosque: A Young American Woman’s Journey to Love and Islam by G. Willow Wilson. The author had found herself drawn to Islam in college and ended up converting on a plane on her way to working as a teacher in Cairo. After a little bit of difficulty getting into this, I found my bearing and am really enjoying seeing Cairo and Islam through her eyes.

What did you recently finish reading?

This weekend, I finished Everything I Know About Love I Learned From Romance Novels by Sarah Wendell, she of the fabulous Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. After that, I plowed through This Will Be My Undoing: Living at the Intersection of Black, Female, and Feminist in (White) America by Morgan Jerkins. I enjoyed both of them, though for very different reasons, and I still need to get my reviews written up. Being sick has slooooooooowed meeeeeeeeeee dooooowwwwwwwwn. 😦

What do you think you’ll read next?

Up next, I have two graphic novels, which I always enjoy. Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel, and The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui. Both are straight from my TBR and I’m very much looking forward to reading both of them.

And that’s it! Hopefully by the next WWW Wednesday, I’ll be feeling more human, instead of feeling like I’ve been kicked in the face, because that’s apparently the thing with a sinus/double ear infection. (And if not, I may take a chainsaw to my own head…)

Happy reading, friends! What have you been reading this week???

    1. I ended up really enjoying that one. I found the author to be a really likable person. She does have the zeal of a convert and gets prickly a few times at fellow Muslim writers who have criticized Islam, but other than that, I enjoyed reading her thoughts and about her life in Cairo.
