WWW WEDNESDAY | #40


It's time for this week's WWW Wednesdays, hosted by Should Be Reading blog (head over and check them out!).

This link up asks three questions
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What do you think you'll be reading next? 
Here are my WWW answers!

What did I recently finish reading?

I have not finished a single book in two weeks.

Ugh. I don't want to talk about it.

What am I currently reading?

 
Well, if you can call it that. Obviously I'm not getting much reading done lately, which is making me VERY cranky. I'd advise avoiding me until I finish off at least two books. Preferably in a sitting.

What do I think I'll be reading next?


A new friend of mine lent me Newjack after a (somewhat heated) discussion of Orange Is the New Black. This is the real story of life behind bars from the perspective of an undercover journalist who secured himself the ultimate insider's view of the prison system - that of a prison guard. Piper Kerman's book has directed some light onto the issues intrinsic to the criminal justice system in the USA, which is a good thing. But while she spent time behind bars, she is not your typical inmate. Your typical inmate doesn't get a chance to share their perspective - and they definitely don't get heard if they do (let alone a book deal and TV adaptation). So I'm interested to read this account which I expect to be darker but more important. Us is a book I've been wanting to start for a while, and hopefully will be a lighter counterpoint!

Well, obviously my reading hasn't been up to much lately (I haven't finished a book in ELEVEN DAYS), but there's still hope that I can turn it around before the end of the month with a bit of effort and luck.

What about you guys? You can't possibly be having as much of a slump as I am, so let me get my vicarious thrills by telling me which books you've polished off recently in the comments!
