WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s open for anyone to join in and is a great way to share what you’ve been reading!
Well, it’s the second week in a row where I’ve just been reading every chance I’ve got so it really feels like the reading slump might finally be over. I’m still reading my way through my NetGalley shelf and this focused approach is really working for me. I’ve been approved for one book this week but I’ve read and reviewed four books so my shelf now stands at 11 books and my ratio is at 98% (for the first time ever!!).
The End of Men by Christina Sweeney-Baird
I only started this one last night so have only read the first couple of chapters but I’m gripped already! This is set during a pandemic that is killing men. It feels a bit strange to read a pandemic book during a pandemic but I think this is going to be a really good read.
Perimenopause Power by Maisie Hill
I’m finding this book really interesting and helpful so far. It’s a good book for women in their early 40s to pick up and it’s set out in easy to follow chapters on different aspects of perimenopause. Some of it is less interesting to me personally but other bits are incredibly helpful.
West of Jim Crow by Lynn M. Hudson
I’ve been reading this one slowly over the past week and am now over a third of the way through and am finding it to be such an eye-opening read. I had no idea that the Jim Crow laws had such an impact on the laws in California well into the 1900s. This is quite an academic book but it’s very accessible and I’d recommend it.
I’ve already reviewed all of the books that I’ve read this week so you can find out more about what I thought about them by clicking the titles.
What I Might Read Next
Madam by Phoebe Wynne
Black Buck by Mateo Askaripour
One of Them by Musa Okwonga
As I said at the start of this post I’m working on reading my way through my NetGalley shelf and so these three books are the next ones to be published so I hope to get to these this week.
