WWW Wednesday | 29 July 2020

Hello!! I was in a slump for the most of this month, unfortunately but I am finally back to reading. And that is all thanks to audiobooks. I am planning to be more consistent over at my blog because I feel inspired. Let us see if I can manage to blog regularly on top of my busy schedule.

Coming to this post, the WWW Wednesday which is a weekly blogging meme hosted by Taking On a World of WordsI came across this meme over at Sumedha’s blog “The Wordy Habitat” which I absolutely love reading and you should definitely check out her blog!

The three Ws are:

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading “Seeing like a feminist” by Nivedita Menon. I have been reading this one since quite some time and will finish it this week hopefully. This book is very  well-written and informative so far. It’s interesting to read about feminism from an Asian point of view because that is what I have grown up experiencing and I can understand the context of so many issues dealt with in the book. So far I like how the author has put across the issues that feminists have to deal with. Let’s see how the rest of it goes.

I am currently listening to the audiobook of “Stay Gold” by Tobly McSmith. Its an #ownvoices book and I like it so far but I have not listened to a lot of it yet. The reviews on Goodreads have quite a few trigger warnings so I would suggest that you check them out if you are planning to pick this one so that you go in fully aware of what to expect.

What did you recently finish reading?

I only finished one book this week and month so far, unfortunately and it was the audiobook of “Felix Ever After” by Kacen Callender. Felix Love is a Black transgender teenager. He is dealing with transphobic messages and a public display of his pre-transition images by an anonymous student. While trying to find out the person behind the gallery and navigating his emotional turmoil, Felix learns to fight for himself and stand up to haters, and love himself. “Felix Ever After” is Felix’s journey of self-discovery. I had a bit of a problem getting into the book initially and did not agree with some parts but they were all dealt with by the end of the book and I absolutely loved that it was pointed out that those incidents were not okay. Overall, I loved this book and would recommend it to everyone. This book has lot of diversity and amazing queer representation. Please read it already if you haven’t read it yet. I will post a full review of this one soon 🙂

P.S.: I absolutely adored Ezra ❤

My rating: 4/5 Stars

What do you think you'll read next?

I plan to pick up two books next:

  1. A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth which I had started reading in June but did not finish because its a huge book and impossible to finish in a month. Also, my reading slump did not help AT ALL. Anyway I plan to pick it up as soon as I finish “Seeing like a feminist”.
  2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen which is technically a re-read. I had started this re-read towards the end of June but sadly the infamous reading slump happened and the rest is history. However I will start reading a chapter or two of this one everyday this week onwards.

What are you currently reading? Have you read any of the books I mentioned or are of those on your TBR?

  1. Is Stay Gold a reference to The Outsiders? It’s one of my favorite books of all time and I had a ring made with Stay Gold stamped on it because I love the meaning of the quote from the book. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
