Welcome to my second WWW Wednesday! This is originally hosted by SAM@TAKING ON A WORLD OF WORDS.
The mechanics for WWW Wednesday is quite simple. You just have to answer three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What have you finished reading?
- What will you read next?
I’ve been seeing this meme quite often in my fellow blogger’s pages. As it is bookish and quite simple to complete, I decided to take the plunge. Oh the bandwagoner in me! This is my first time doing it so do bear with me. Happy reading! Without any more ado, here goes.
What are you currently reading?
To conclude my July Asian Literature month, I decided to take on this contemporary piece written by Syrian-American author. Due to my tight schedule in the past two weeks, unfortunately, I was unable to finish reading the book before July ended. This tale set in the Middle East is about two young lady’s individual journeys in their respective time period. The reading journey is going fine so far; I have about a hundred more pages to go but it has already proven to me what I have always known, the proclivity of Asians for storytelling and their love for tales and adventure.
What have you finished reading?
Since my first WWW Wednesday edition, I have completed reading two books. Pachinko by Korean-born author Min Kin Lee and Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie form part of my Asian Literature Month. The former is a family saga which almost always pluck the proverbial strings in my heart while the latter is a magical tale that is reminiscent of the famed Middle Eastern lore collection One Hundred and One Nights. In their own ways, both are riveting.
What will you read next?
I plan August to be my Pulitzer Prize month. I already did a Man Booker Prize Month (and it was quite successful) last October 2018 so I feel compelled to do one with purely Pulitzer Prize winners. As I am on the cusp of my 700th book which I fully resolve to be the colossal American literature classic Gone With The Wind. Reading these two Pulitzer Prize-winning books felt fitting to what is bound to be a literary masterpiece of a reading month.
So that’s my second WWW Wednesday. How about you fellow reader, what are your WWW Wednesday reads? Care to share it in the comment box? Or you can do your own but don’t forget to tag me!
