Reading Wrap-Up (June 10, 2020)

Good evening everyone! I’m in quite a good mood for reading lately, so I thought I’d share a reading wrap-up with you all today. I’m joining in with WWW Wednesday.

What I’m Currently Reading

Last week, I downloaded a couple of autism-related books off Bookshare. I started with Our Autistic Lives edited by Alex Radcliffe. This is a collection of personal accounts of life with autism, organized by author age.

Then I stumbled on Diagnosis by Lisa Sanders. This is a collection of colums by the author about strange medical cases. I’m 20% done with it now.

Lastly, today I picked up Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott again after a few weeks of not reading it. I’m not sure I’ll finish it, but we’ll see. I don’t think I like this book as much as I’d originally thought.

What I Recently Finished Reading

I spent all of last week-end reading Full Disclosure by Camryn Garrett and finished it on Sunday. See my review, which I wrote on Monday.

What I Think I’ll Be Reading Next

I put a few other autism-related books on my virtual shelves this past week, including Spectrum Women by Barb Cook. I also downloaded a few more books in honor of #BlackLivesMatter, namely On the Come Up and The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.

However, I’m a true mood reader and I’ve had Clean by Juno Dawson on my radar for a while, so I may buy that one soon and read it first.

What have you been reading lately?

  1. The Meanjin literary magazine which came in my mailbox a few hours ago. It was so funny to know that the cover-writer had read the books and authors I read: Deborah Levy; Louisa May Alcott; Simone de Beauvoir; Sally Rooney [Conversations with Friends]; Rachel Cusk [Coventry] – that author is Lucia Osborne-Crowley.

    [the one of her mentions I haven’t read is Cheryl Strayed].

    The Volitaire impromptu by Moliere.

    Pan Tadeusz – two of my favourite things are in the Fourth Part – Diplomacy and Hunting!

    PAWEL EDMUND STRZELECKI – the man who climbed and named Mount Kosciuszko – this is by historian Marian Kaluski and I picked it up as a library book more than twelve years ago. I put my watch on Strzelecki’s cravat from a family portrait of his.

    Jewel’s poetry – A NIGHT WITHOUT ARMOUR

    Liza of Lambeth [Maugham] – read his nephew’s biography not long back and it was great.

    BERLIN DIARY by William L. Striker.

    Margaret Atwood’s THE HEART GOES LAST.

    Chocolat by Joanne Harris

    And The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work by Alain de Botton. Reading about Transmission Engineering and the Pylon Club.

    Anticipating your FULL DISCLOSURE review.
