Hello and Welcome to WWW Wednesday! Forgive me for being a little late today but my hubby and I are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. He’s so cute and attentive.

What I’ve Read

Rating: 4 out of 5.

As you can see from the rating, I enjoyed this science fiction thriller slash moral quandary. I found it interesting how Gilmartin managed to have so much happening in such a confined space. Would recommend for readers who appreciate suspense with a bit of character depth. For more of my thoughts and an excerpt visit my blog tour stop for this book.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This was my second time reading The Autobiography of Malcolm X and I took home a considerable bit more than the first time. I know age factors into this but I also feel that the current political climate had me looking at his life and his opinions through a different lens.

What I’m Reading

Currently on page 205/333

I usually don’t like post-apocalyptic fiction so I am surprised by my response to this book especially during the middle of this current pandemic. I am reading Station Eleven as part of the Tournament of Books Super Rooster where it got knocked out in the opening round. But I am invested now and truly want to know what happens to the characters so I will read on merrily.

In this book Payne is trying to give a more personal look at Malcolm X’s life by including interviews of the people closest to him. So far I am the most intrigued by his secret meeting with the Ku Klux Klan back in 1961.

What I’ll Read Next

Goodreads: From the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Resistance Reborn comes the first book in the Between Earth and Sky trilogy, inspired by the civilizations of the Pre-Columbian Americas and woven into a tale of celestial prophecies, political intrigue, and forbidden magic.

  1. Wow! It’s your second time reading Malcolm X? It’s been on my shelves for years, I want to read it but it looks too long and dense but I should read it!
    Anyway, I enjoyed Station Eleven though I am not much into post-apocalyptic stories, too. I hope you like it to the end. 🙂
