WWW Wednesday | (15/3/2022)

Hello, my fellow Spirals!

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. The three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?
Rich Dad Poor Dad – Robert T. Kiyosaki

Okay reading this book makes me wonder WHY DO THEY NOT TEACH THIS STUFF IN SCHOOL?! I am starting my job in June and it was a goal for me this year to read this book before that and learn about personal finance. And honestly, this book has opened my eyes. I am learning so much that I literally had no idea about before reading this book.

I think this is a MUST read for everyone out there. However, don’t expect to find solutions or ideas on how to make money but rather to think about money differently. It teaches you how to gain power of money rather than working for it your entire life.

The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus) – Rick Riordan

This is actually a re-read for me. I never really liked this one because… well, Percy isn’t there. And we suddenly have new characters that I didn’t care about because I missed Percy so much.

But reading it the 2nd time after reading the entire series, I definitely appreciate it a whole lot more. In fact, I am really enjoying this book and like the characters so much more now.

Convenience Store Woman – Sayaka Murata

This was such an odd yet thought provoking read. It highlights how our society has certain expectations from us and anyone who doesn’t meet them is immediately deemed as weird or “abnormal”. I will be posting a mini review on this book on Friday so stay tuned to hear more on it!

The Help – Kathryn Stockett

Oh my god this book is stunning. I picked this book up and finished a few chapters and immediately knew that I am going to love this book. So naturally I dropped it to pick it up later.

From what I have gathered so far, this book is basically about the black community of women working as the help in white people’s house and how they are treated. It follows the story of Aibileen: a black maid raising a white child, Minny: a wonderful cook with no control over her tongue and Miss Skeeter: a white woman who wants to know what happened why her beloved maid disappeared.

I was and am reading Brittle with Relics by Richard King, which is an amazing oral history of Wales 1967-92 which I worked on, too. And yesterday I finished Margaret Atwood’s new book of essays, Burning Questions, much of which was very good indeed.
