WWW Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Taking on a World of Words.
I sort of waffled about posting an October TBR this week, but since I already made a TBR post for the R.i.P. XII reading challenge that covers the majority of that TBR, I decided to hold off and post an update instead. Maybe I’ll still end up posting one. I don’t know!
What am I currently reading?
At the moment, I’m only reading one book! This is super weird for me, as 2-3 books at a time is my norm (and sometimes there are more). I’m about halfway done with Night Film by Marisha Pessl, which I put on my October TBR honestly sort of skeptical that I would ever pick it up, but after reading the first page of several TBR books sounded like the most appealing. I’m very much enjoying it so far; it’s fascinating and creepy without being TOO scary (at least so far) and I love that there are newspaper articles and whatnot included along with normal text. This book is over 600 pages long, but it’s flying by so far.
What did I recently finish reading?
This morning, I finished Sourdough by Robin Sloan, which was my Book of the Month Club pick for September. I listened to some of this on audio and read the rest with the actual physical book; it’s a very quick, light read which didn’t blow me away but was a nice contrast to the darker mystery-type reads I had going simultaneously. I’d say that if you are in a mood where you want to read something fluffy and delightful where nothing bad will happen, pick up Sourdough.
What am I planning to read next?
Night Film will probably keep me occupied for another few days, but I’ll be looking for an audiobook to pick up soon (I needed a little audiobook break after listening to a few in a row) and Final Girls by Riley Sager just popped up in my library holds list. This was my BOTM pick for July and I do also own the physical copy, so I’ll probably jump between the two. It’s a thriller about survivors of horror-movie-type massacres who are later targeted themselves by an unknown killer; it’s very much in the October reading type vibe. I think I’ll also be in the mood to pick up Fever Dream by Samanta Schweblin soon, which is a very short and weird book that was on the Man Booker shortlist and sounds like something I’d be very much into.
