Hello and welcome to my May 2020 reading status! I hope you are all well in this tumultuous times and that you stay safe, preferably at home as much as possible.
This is a WWW Wednesday post, hosted by Sam@Taking on a World of Words about the past, current and future reads.
1| What are you currently reading?
I’ve just started reading “The Heart Goes Last” by Margaret Atwood. I bought this book without knowing anything about it. It caught my eye during an online purchase from Nautilus, a local English bookshop, and right after that I was recommended to read it 🙂 So it had to be the next read!
2| What did you recently finish reading?
I managed again to finish 2 books in a month ❤
First I finished “The Little Friend” by Donna Tartt. I had very high expectations, after reading “The Secret History” and “The Goldfinch” by the same author … unfortunately, I was a little bit disappointed. In a nutshell, it is about a girl who wants to revenge the death of her younger brother.
The second book finished is “Deep” by James Nestor, a book about freediving and our (limited) understanding about the oceans. I read this book very quickly, during one weekend. It was amazing how many things I learnt about the underwater world.
3| What do you think you’ll read next?
I am oscillating between “The History of Bees” by Maja Lunde and “The Golden Thread” by Kassia St. Clair. “The History of Bees” recently caught my eye when I read about Maja Lunde’s Climate Quartet.
“The Golden Thread” was long awaited after reading the other book written by Kassia St. Clair – “The Secret Lives of Colour” – a book I enjoyed a lot!
I guess it will depend a lot on my reading mood – a dystopian story or a non-fiction book about the history of textiles. Or both! 🙂
‘Till next time … happy reading and #stayhome!
