“Most of recorded human history is one big data gap.”First line in Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez
Hi, guys. I hope you’re all doing great. Today I’m using WWW Wednesday to give you a reading update. WWW Wednesday a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and it’s meant to give you all a little insight into my reading this week. I’ll answer the 3 questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish?
- What do you think you’ll read next
What did you recently finish?
I finished Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez. Not really sure how to rate non-fiction but I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads mainly because I want more people to read it. Especially if you think the world (or parts of it) has already reached complete gender equality. This book exposes all the many ways that that is simply not the case. It’s also not a book that’s too hard to understand. All the data is presented fairly straight forwardly. I highly recommend it.
During this last week I both started and finished Firestarter by Tara Sim, the final book in the Timekeeper trilogy. I actually completed a series, guys! Unfortunately, it was the worst book in the series for me, but I still gave it 4 stars. I still like the characters very much, but the plot went in circles a lot in this final book and the dialogue seemed quite cliché. I might write a full review of it with spoilers because I have thoughts.
What are you currently reading?
I’ve started Burn by Patrick Ness which I’m 53% into. I didn’t actually have very high expectations for this one going in. It was due to a combination of a synopsis that didn’t really interest me and some mixed reviews for it so far. But I read everything Patrick Ness writes so I picked it up anyway… and I’m really loving it! I’m just not sure why 😂. I’m very intrigued about what’s going on even though I don’t completely understand it. This man’s writing, though, is just as phenomenal as always.
Also still working on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Currently at 57%.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I actually expect to be starting two new books in the upcoming week. The first is The House in the Cerulean Sea by T. J. Klune. I’m very excited to be reading my first book by T. J. Klune.
Before next Wednesday, we’ll also have passed the release date for Drowned Country by Emily Tesh which is the sequel to Silver in the Wood. I’m dropping everything else to read that one immediately.
