W…W…W…Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading
To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
* What are you currently reading?
* What did you recently finish reading?
* What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading? I’m currently reading The Telling of Lies by Timothy Findley. Findley is my favorite author by a long shot. I took refuge in this book after a traumatizing run-in with a Leonard Cohen book earlier this week. You can read all about that incident here.
What did you recently finish reading? I finished up I Do Not Come to You by Chance by Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani over the weekend. Nwaubani’s debut novel won the Commonwealth Writers Prize for best first novel in the Africa category this year. It was an interesting book, but far from what I was hoping it would be. I posted a review for it yesterday.
What do you think you’ll read next? Just glancing quickly at my TBR pile, I think my next read will likely be A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. Last year sometime, I had started hearing rumors about the merits of Australian Fiction. I asked an Aussie friend of mine to suggest some good Australian reads to me and this one was at the top of the list. It is a bit of a chunkster, so I have been putting it off. I don’t know if I can put it off much longer though; it appears that the chunksters are starting to take over the TBR pile.
