Hello and happy Wednesday everyone!
Since this week’s Banned Books Week, I’ve been reading a few banned/challenged books to prepare for my blog posts! I haven’t done one in a few weeks and felt like this was the perfect opportunity to get back into it. Although I will mainly focus on banned/challenged books, I’ll include a couple other books that don’t fall into this category that I’ve read recently.
WWW Wednesdays were originally, hosted by A Daily Rhythm but has been revived by Sam from Taking on a World of Words.
Now, let’s talk books!
What I’ve Read
I did end up finishing The House On Mango Street, which I posted about on Monday for Banned Books Week. After finishing, I did continue reading The Hero Of Ages, but I also listened to I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy. It was the first audiobook I’ve listened to in full, so that was fun! I have wrote a whole Instagram post about it if you want to hear more of my thoughts.
What I’m Currently Reading
I told myself I wanted to read some other stuff before starting the final Mistborn book from the original trilogy… but in case you can’t tell, I started The Hero of Ages. I’m also reading through If Beale Street Could Talk, and I’ve been enjoying it so far! This is the first book by James Baldwin that I’ve read, and his writing style is fun to read. Baldwin does talk about issues of racism that were prevalent during the early 70s, but it’s interwoven with some interesting thoughts on feminism as well.
What I Plan On Reading
Right now, I’m thinking of reading The Bluest Eye next. Even if I don’t get to it this week, I would love to get to it sometime before the end of the year!
And that’s all I have for this week’s WWW Wednesday! Let me know what you’re reading, or what you just finished reading, in the comments below 👌
On that note, I will see you in the next post coming out tomorrow!
