It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This blog hop is hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for this week, and just answer the three questions.
Though first, I wrote a blog post about my weekend spent at the Canberra Writer’s Festival, if anyone is interested. There was so much I didn’t get to, but the sessions I did attend were very inspiring.
What have you recently finished reading?
It’s been one of those weeks where I have neither finished nor reviewed anything. Blargh. Lots of things going on, very few of them enjoyable. I did DNF Utopia by Lincoln Child on audio… it wasn’t exactly terrible but it was published in 2002 and for something supposed to be set in the near-future, it didn’t date very well. And more interesting audio books became available.
What are you currently reading?
Still trucking along with Miss Muriel Matters by Robert Wainwright. Light at the end of the tunnel! I am within the last 80 pages. It has been fascinating reading about someone at the heart of the women’s suffrage movement in Britain though. In 1908, Muriel Matters and a fellow suffragist chained themselves to the Grille which separated the Ladies’ Gallery from the House of Commons, and in the raucous, Muriel became the first woman to speak in the House.
I have started An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir on audio. I’m about a quarter of the way through and it’s… fine? I’m not entirely sold on it yet, but I’m not disliking it. It’s distracting that Laia sounds like “liar” so every time someone says her name, it sounds like they’re accusing her of not telling the truth. I thought it was pronounced like “layer” but apparently not.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I honestly have no idea at this point! Probably something easily digestible. Maybe some of my Writer’s Festival purchases. One of those is short stories, and that would be nice and easy to get through.
