Wednesday Wrap Up August 17th, 2022

I know it’s been 2 weeks again since the last one but I had nothing to post last week really. Hell, I don’t have much now.

What I am currently reading

Nothing at the moment.

What i’ve recently finished

Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law by Haban Girma – 5 stars!

This is a wonderful autobiography! I loved how stories from her life was told in the present tense, it felt so much more personal. It’s also infused with humor. You can learn so much from this, in an accessible way and having a nice time while doing it. Please read the discussion questions at the end, they give food for thought.

I have also been disabled my entire life but for entirely different reasons. I am neither deaf nor blind. I do have auditory processing disorder though so when she mentions there was too much noise to make anything out, I relate to that. I can’t make anything out in those situations either.

She’s the first deafblind student to graduate Harvard, and she’s barely 6 months older than me. We still have so far to go, but that’s not meant to take away from how far we’ve come.

What do I think i’ll read next?

Something for netgalley? A magazine? Who knows. Maybe something else.

Other Stuff

Me and my mom are sick. It’s not covid but it still sucks and I can’t get a break because it’s one thing after another trying to recover from intense surgery still and now i’m sick on top of it and my body has a lot of trouble healing in the best of circumstances :(. But the drain sites look better so hopefully in time i’ll get better. If this cold doesn’t turn into pneumonia which they love to do with me. Please, send good vibes or whatever.

Weekly Wednesday Wrap Up August 3rd, 2022

I know it’s been more than a week, because of surgery, and I was going to try to do one last week but the only book I read was The Gender Friend: A 102 Guide to Gender Identity by Oakley Phoenix which I had already wrote a review for Here. So here’s just the past week!

What I am currently reading

Nothing at the moment. Hopefully that’ll change soon, we’ll see. There is at least one book I need to read this month but since i’m feeling like shit (I appear to have an infection from the surgery drains I still have but I am on an antibiotic now so here’s hoping i’ll be ok) i’m not sure what else i’ll get to.

What I finished in the past week

Paradise Club by Tim Meyer – This was good gorey slasher fun! And I liked the characters to, even cried a little bit at a certain death. Gave it 5 stars.

Discover – May/June 2022 by Kalmbach Publishing Co. – Science Magazine. Gave it 3 stars.

BBC Wildlife Magazine – May 2022 by Immediate Media Company London Ltd – Animals and nature magazine. Gave it 4 stars.

What do I think i’ll read next?

Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law by Haban Girma – This book is the bare minimum I need to read this month, because I picked it for a book club, The eclecticist of eclectic book club. Hopefully i’ll read more but, who knows. I certainly don’t. I do have an August Pile of Possibilities that’ll be posted on Saturday.

Weekly Wednesday Wrap Up  July 6th, 2022

What I Am Currently Reading

Nothing at the moment. I’m guessing that won’t last long.

What I Finished in the Past Week

BBC Science Focus Magazine – April 2022 by Immediate Media Company London Ltd – 4 stars

Just a magazine

Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt – 5 stars

OMG This book means so much to me now! It’s character-driven and it’s one of those books I want to shove in everyone’s face lol. I felt so much of what Tova was going through for my own reasons. And felt for Cameron. And Marcellus the Octopus is amazing, all three of these characters are amazing. I loved so many lines. It made me cry. I found so much depth in these pages personally. And I had to hug the book! I wanna give it more than 5 stars!

Monster Musume, Vol. 7 by Okayado – 5 stars

A manga. I enjoy these characters. Has some depth to it now and then. Often funny.

What do I think i’ll read next?

Saga, Volume 5 and 6 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples – Need to continue my reread for Volume 10 in October

Monster Musume, Vol. 8 by Okayado – Last I checked (Just yesterday, for awhile it kept getting pushed back) Volume 17 is due out in December. I have some catching up to do.

NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman – I’m autistic and this is very highly rated.

Of course I do not need to read these. They are just what i’m thinking of reading at the moment.

  1. What are you currently reading?

Exactly what I said last week. At the moment, nothing, but I expect that to change soon. Sorry I seem to finish a book Tuesday night and then have to write this before I start another book😂.

2. What did you recently finish?

Please note if you are looking for Garden Gnome Sex Party on Goodreads you’ll need the original title, Garden Gnome Gangbang. Amazon didn’t like gangbang.

Joyland by Stephen King – 5 stars I loved this so much! I have a review on Here.

Garden Gnome Sex Party by Fannie Tucker – I liked this one but I won’t say more because a Taboo Thursday review is going up tomorrow for this.

CattyWampus by Ash Van Otterloo – 3 stars

I found some of it off and the religion aspect kinda weird. Also not sure if i’m supposed to be offended at part of it, but I digress. Listening to it instead of reading it with my eyeballs might be to blame.

I had some laughs and some feels. I was both annoyed with and felt for the characters at different times. I’d say over-all I liked it, it just wasn’t exactly my cup of tea and that’s ok. I loved the diversity. Katy, one of the MC’s, is intersex and has a deaf brother and another character has 2 mom’s.

I also watched Season 4 Episodes 1-4 of Stranger Things so far! I love Stranger Things!

3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Trans Wizard Harriet Porber and the Bad Boy Parasaurolophus: An Adult Romance Novel by Chuck Tingle

Maybe? I’m not sure. I’ll find out later today hopefully what I ultimately decide on! You can always friend or follow me on Goodreads if you want to stay up-to-date with what i’m reading or you can just wait until next week on here when I do next weeks WWW Wednesday.
