WWW Wednesday: 23rd February 2022

It’s February WWW Wednesday time! This is a weekly (but I tend to do it monthly) challenge, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. 

If you’re curious about what other people are reading right now too, join in! All you have to do is answer the three bookish questions below and put your blog link on Sam’s weekly post in the comments.

/ WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW?

I started Impossible by Sarah Lotz not really realising what it was about. It turns out, it takes a little sci-fi spin, which I wasn’t expecting but am really enjoying. Nick and Bee meet through a rogue email and hit it off, digitally. But when things in their realities don’t align, it’s clear something else is going on… A unique concept for a love story, really enjoying it so far.

/ WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?

I loved New Animal by Ella Baxter. I appreciate it might not be for everyone as it explicitly deals with death and sex and the link between the two (specifically in pain and substituting one kind of pain for another), but I found it fresh, raw and a brilliant read.

I love the look and sound of Vagabonds! by Eloghosa Osunde – here’s the blurb:

Vagabonds are those whose existence is literally outlawed: the queer, the poor, the displaced, the footloose and rogue spirits.

Eloghosa Osunde’s brave, fiercely inventive novel traces a wild array of characters for whom life itself is a form of resistance. As their lives intertwine—in bustling markets and underground clubs, churches and hotel rooms—vagabonds are seized and challenged by spirits who command the city’s dark energy.

Whether running from danger, meeting with secret lovers, finding their identities, or vanquishing their shadowselves, Osunde’s characters confront and support one another, before converging for the once-in-a-lifetime gathering that gives the book its unexpectedly joyous conclusion.”

I’d love to know what you’re reading this week / plan on reading soon – let me know below!
