WELCOME BACK to WWW Wednesday! I’m happy to report that I’ve been pretty consistent with my readings from last week. I have been reading quite a few manhwa’s lately as they require short term emotional investments, unlike the novels I have on my TBR list at the moment.
I loved Djun-nim’s illustrations and story, it was so heart-warming and beautiful to read, I’m quite sad that it has ended. I really hope there’s a spin-off for Chu Huan Wen and Yuan since Yu Yang’s story is a spin-off from Djun-nim’s previous work.
Here are a few of the ongoing BL’s I’m reading:
Truthfully, I’m pretty nervous about this class. I am not sure I have what it takes but I’m excited too and I enjoyed reading both of these works. I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of writing I produce because of this class.
I’m still reading White Fragility [Buy Bookshop]. Technically, White Fragility is on hold for now. I need to sort out my work, life, school-balance before I continue reading.
It’s pretty heavy, and honestly, I’ve had an emotionally heavy summer so I’m okay with putting this one of the back-burner for now.
As promised in last week’s WWW Wednesday that I would complete the Spiral of Bliss series (I thought I had but there are 5 books in total, not 3). So, I went into My Book Jar and started the fourth book in the Spiral of Bliss series, Adore. I did not re-read books 1-3; I jumped right in.
Friend’s I find myself shaking my head at some of the thoughts swirling around Olivia’s head, but then I step back and remember when it was written and that maybe it’s okay for these (in my opinion) outdated thoughts.
Sure, I’m a mother, a business-woman, festival coordinator, member of a mom’s group, et cetera… but I’m also a wife.” Adore– Nina Lane
Last I checked, she’s also a woman, but I maybe that’s included in the “et cetera…”
I am enjoying it so far and will leave final judgements till the end *fingers crossed*
I am excited to read coming of age graphic novel The Times I Knew I Was Gay. I received an advanced reader’s copy (ARC) from NetGalley. The Times I Knew I Was Gay is author Eleanor Crewes’ debut novel about accepting oneself.
We’ve all been on a similar journey of finding where we fit in which is why I’m looking forward to a different kind of coming of age story presented in the form of a graphic novel, a medium of reading I’ve been obsessed with lately.
I will read it this weekend and post a review before it publishes on October 6, 2020. [Buy Bookshop].
I didn’t realize how much I had read and have to look forward to reading. I must say, I am looking forward to my Professional Writing course this semester, and of course, reading The Times I Knew I Was Gay this weekend.
