And just like that it’s a whole new month! Welcome friends, to September!
Fall is almost here!
Although I did buy a fall candle on Monday, so does that mean it has already arrived in my house? Ooh, can I put out my pumpkins? Would my husband be a fan of Halloween in September?
I’m going to go with no on that last one. He always asks me to wait on the Halloween decorations.
But why wait, I ask you? Why wait?
Oh dear, I seem to have lost the plot, which is WWW Wednesday! It’s a bookish meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the three W’s: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
Heartless by Gail Carriger
I loved the last three books in this series and had purchased the whole run, but I hadn’t finished it. So I thought, well, why not work on that? So I am. Totally makes sense.
What did you recently finish reading?
Introducing Quantum Theory: A Graphic Guide to Science’s Most Puzzling Discovery by J.P. McEvoy, Oscar Zárate
This book took me two months to slough through, and I remember none of it. At all. Not one iota. You can ask me anything about quantum theory and my reply will be “whatever”. I’m more interested in cosmology or astrophysics. That holds my attention and I can retain that information. But, if you are into quantum theory and want to learn more, this book may be for you.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Timeless by Gail Carriger
I suppose I’ll try and finish the Parasol Protectorate series, now won’t I? This is the last book in the series, but thanks to The Storygraph, I have learned there are tiny little stories set in the world that I now have to track down and find. Bother.
The Hike by Drew Magary
This is the pick for the month of September for the Literarily Wasted book club. If you’re a Sci-fi/Fantasy fan, go join! You can find them on the Facebook in two places, the official page where they host the book club meetings twice a month for one hour each time (online!), or the lounge, which is for members to gather and talk. Each month they split the book in twain, you read up to a certain point and that’s the point the first discussion is up to when they do the live chat. At the end of the month they discuss they whole book. It’s a lot of fun.
So I’m a mood reader (What? No? You’ve never mentioned this before she say’s sarcastically) so who knows if those will actually be the two books I get to next, but we shall see!
