Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday post, a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Don’t forget to go take a look at what everyone else is reading! You can post your own WWW in the comment thread here.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seirstad (Non-fiction). Seirstad – a journalist – spends four months living with a bookseller and his family in Kabul, shortly after the fall of the Taliban. I started this one last week but it is going slowly. The chapters are almost set up as short vignettes, which is kind of appealing, since I have only been able to read in short spurts. I am still undecided if I like the fact that the author wrote herself out of the account.
Gilded Cage by Vic James – I received this ARC on Netgalley, and overall, I really enjoyed it. In fact, I am still mulling over the characters, so I think it might be a book (dare I say, series?) that I grow fonder of over time. Review here.
Little Girls Can Be Mean by Michelle Anthony. Little Girls Can Be Mean appears on so many parenting reading lists. More than anything, it shows how little is actually out there for parents on the topic of female social conflicts and bullying in the elementary years.
This book is very repetitive, and mostly filled with common sense advice of things we already do. A few tips felt wrong to me, as many other reviewers have already brought up. The authors relied too much on anecdotes from their own children, which took away from the legitimacy of the research aspect of the book. I REALLY did not like it, and probably won’t be reviewing it anywhere other than this mini-review that I put on Goodreads. D

Up Next: I don’t know!!
I think I’m in a bit of a slump, I have absolutely no idea what I am going to pick up next. Here are a few of the contenders:
Sailor Moon, Volume 2 by Naoko Takeuchi – Something fun.
My Experiments with Truth by Mahatma Gandhi – Something uplifting and powerful.
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi – Something that is almost due back at the library.
Of course, it could turn out to be something completely different.
