I’ve done it. It’s official. I have caught Nikki Fever. This is my latest TTT post ever, and I don’t even have a good reason! Honestly? I wasn’t even that busy, I was just reading and playing my instruments. (Plus, I had a bit of a sneak peek at the topic. You’ll see what I mean in a minute)
Well, better late than never, right? I’ll stick my WAYRW post in here, so put on your patient face! (No scowling! Do it!)
I couldn’t pick between TTT pics: (haha I’m so funny- what’s that you say? Corny? Oh, that reminds me, I had corn for lunch yesterday and it was delicious)
Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity/Diverse Characters (example: features minority/religious minority, socioeconomic diversity, disabled MC, neurotypical character, LGBTQ etc etc.)
Uh…. I don’t know what half of those words mean…. Wow, this post is going to be super lame.
Now, if you scroll up (or just trust me, either way), you’ll notice that I “had a bit of a sneak peek at the topic”. You are all going to kill me now, but… Surprise! I decided not to do my TTT this week. Instead, I’ll tell you a bit about one of my most recently finished reads, and move on to the WAYRW (yes, I promise I’m not skipping that).
I recently finished East by Edith Pattou. I actually read it a few years ago, but my reading choices have branched out in all different directions since then and I had completely forgotten the plot. I loved that I felt like I was reading it for the first time, and how it was based on a Norwegian tale. The author wrote a bit at the end explaining how the ending came together “like fate”, which was really cool. (I can’t tell you about it without giving away a lot of stuff, sorry) The writing style was so unique; I really connected with the characters in a lot of ways. I am excited to read other interpretations of the same tale, such as Ice by Sarah Beth Durst and Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George. Have any of you read this book? What did you think?
Now for the WAYRW!
In case you haven’t heard of it, What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Its A Reading Thing. Simply answer these three easy questions:
1. What’s the name of your current read?
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your ebook and share one complete sentence.
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
(By the way, I just finished Clockwork Angel and LOVED it! Although not a fan of Will’s. At all. Whatsoever.)
1) I’m reading Across The Universe by Beth Revis.
2) “I try to look confident, assertive- but it’s wasted, because Eldest hasn’t looked back at me once.” Not the best quote….
3) I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure Sol-Earth doesn’t count, since the story isn’t really placed there, but with all the “issues”, I most certainly wouldn’t want to live there. And Godspeed is dependent on Elder. Heck, there’s no sky! They’ve never seen the stars! No way, no how. Uh-uh. Not happening.
Well, this concludes one of the suckiest posts ever. Hope you didn’t mind. On your way out, I have some friends that would like to wish you a belated happy Tuesday! 😉 Enjoy.
Bye guys! I promise that my TTT next week (haha, technically this week) will be Wednesday or before! I plan on holding myself to that! Anyway, for whoever may still be reading, thanks for sticking around. I don’t know what I’d do without you. Well, I’m tearing up. So… *clasps hands* Bye now! 🙂 👋🏻
