Well hello everyone! And how are we doing today? I treated myself to a movie yesterday and went and saw Tick Tick Boom!. The movie musical based on Jonathan Larson’s (the guy who wrote Rent) life, and directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda. If you don’t know, Larson’s life was tragically cut short and he died the night before Rent began previews on Broadway. He wrote Tick Tick Boom! before he wrote Rent, and it just so happens to be an autobiographical musical. If you like musicals, and you like Rent, I encourage you to see it.
As for my Mental Health this week, it’s doing pretty good. My life has been consumed by Animal Crossing though, so I have been slacking on my reading. That’s filling me with dread. Oh well. The month’s only halfway done. I have time.
Today is WWW Wednesday! WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words but was previously hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm. WWW Wednesday asks three simple questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
We Could Be Heroes by Mike Chen
I started this one last night and only got a few pages in before I realized how late it was. I will be continuing this as the first few pages seem really good. Plus it’s on my TBR for the month, and I’ve been wanting to read it for a while.
The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell
I know, I was reading this two weeks ago, but in my defense, I really didn’t like the way the one character was voiced on the audiobook. So yeah, I stopped listening to it for a week. I just picked up the Kindle version the other day and have been reading that since.
What did you recently finish reading?
Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
I finished this just last night and I still don’t know how I feel about this book. Was it an interesting read? To be sure. But was it a good read? Eh. I felt it fell more middle-ground for me. This is a book that commands your presence but it leaves you wanting more, and not in a good way. So yeah. I gave it three stars Goodreads.
What do you think you’ll read next?
The Unbound Empire by Melissa Caruso
This has been on my TBR pile for a year! A year! To be fair, I’ve had lots of books on my TBR for that long. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and will be happy to see how it concludes.
