WWW Wednesday – August 3, 2016

I found this meme from Chloe over on Paint and Butterflies Books. WWW Wednesday was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and was revived by Taking on a World of Words. The idea is to answer three reading-themed ‘W’ questions and then post the link to your post in the comments of Taking on a World of Words weekly post.

The questions are:

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

What are you currently reading?

Far From You coverRight now I’m in the middle of Far From You by Tess Sharpe. I decided to pick up a bunch of LGBT YA titles recently and this one seemed to be on a lot of recommended lists. I’m really loving it so far because not only does it feature wlw characters, but it’s also a murder mystery. I can hardly put it down!

 

What did you recently finish reading?

Bossypants cover

The last book I read was Bossypants by Tina Fey. I picked this one up at the recommendation of my brother, who loves Fey and spent a few solid days quoting his favourite parts of the book to me via text message. I don’t often read non-fiction, so it was a nice (and funny) departure for me.

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

Anything Could Happen cover

I’m probably going to move on to Anything Could Happen by Wil Walton. This is another LGBT YA title that has come highly recommended. Based on what I’ve heard about it, I feel like I’m really going to like the main character.

      Far From You kind of reminds me of Pretty Little Liars in a way, minus the petty nonsensical drama and wealthy white girl squad (which I say with love because there was a time in my life when I was all about PLL).

      The entirety of Bossypants is quotable, but the best part in my opinion was the prayer for her daughter. Oh, man. Just trust me on this one. Classic.

    I’ve been planning to read Bossypants ever since I read Yes Please by Amy Poehler and enjoyed it. Tina Fey gets mentioned a lot in that book (as you’d expect) and I’ve actually seen more of Fey on TV than Poehler and I think I’d enjoy reading her voice. In fact, I should probably see if I can get the audio book version, which I’m guessing she’d narrate herself.

    Plus, like you, I don’t often read non-fiction, and need to push myself to read more!

      I’m not surprised to hear that Fey comes up a lot in Yes, Please – Poehler is a pretty big part of Bossypants, too! I haven’t made it very far into Yes, Please yet but right off the bat I noticed that Poehler’s writing is a bit more refined. Reading Bossypants is basically like sitting and listening to Fey tell you her life story; it’s very much in her own voice. Listening to the audio book would probably be a riot!

    I hope you loved Bossypants. I really liked the audiobook which Fey narrates herself. I think she’s a great role model and it was great to hear her story. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
