Reading Time: 2 minutes

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Samanneelizabeth over at Taking on a World of Words. It’s all about books we are Currently Reading, Just Finished Reading and Reading Next.

THINGS ARE STILL hectic around here for me. Required readings have been front and center and so I haven’t been able to read as much. I thought because of school I would have to put my TBR books to the side. Luckily, some of the books I have to read are on my TBR list, so win, win.

Currently Reading

Cover of The Interesting Narrative and Other Writings by Olaudah Equiano

So today actually, I started The Interesting Narrative by Olaudah Equiano. It’s required reading for my Travel Writing in English course, I’m only a tiny bit in but so far it’s very interesting. It’s the travel memoirs of Olaudah Equiano an African man from the 18th century who was captured and became a slave. I’m sure that it might be heavy especially considering what is going on in the world, but we can’t ignore his account. I’ll let you know how it goes. 

Recently Finish Reading

Cover of The Metamorphosis and Other Stories by Franz Kafka

The last story I finished was The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, another required reading, this one for Literature of the Fantastic. This was a weird one. But fortunately, it was on my TBR list. Not to give too much away but a guy turns into a bug. I think this was on my list because it’s considered a classic, one of those books to read and so I did. 

Reading Next

Cover of Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut Jr

I know that I have to read Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. for Literature of the Fantastic. Another classic and another book on my TBR list. I’m not sure what this is about, but I’ve read his other book Cat’s Cradle and did not like it. Is this one the same? Tell me what you thought of it?

So, that’s what I’ve been up to this WWW Wednesday. What about y’all?

Happy Reading!

    The Metamorphosis is one of my absolute favorite stories! SO GOOD! I felt like it really spoke volumes about male disposability. A man who can no longer produce is cast aside. His family just waits for him to die. So poignant and sad.
