It’s time for another WWW Wednesday!
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
To participate, leave a comment on today’s post over at Taking on a World of Words with your responses, and check out the books everyone else is talking about! This series occurs every Wednesday, and I participate about once a month as a sort of midway check-in.
What am I currently reading?
I’m working through several books at the moment, with the most interesting being Eubeltic Descent by Nadine Keels. Technically it’s fantasy, but it feels more like historical fiction set in a different land. The protagonist, Abigaia, is a mute girl coming to terms with her unclear family history and trying to make her way in a discouraging land.
What have I recently finished? The last book I reviewed was Miss Someday R.J. Ryker. I’ve also read a few short stories recently, including a fun one about an old library called Give Attendance by Rebekah A. Morris. Since it’s a short story, I probably will not review this on its own, but part of my end-of-the-year wrap-up may include a section on short stories like this one read this year.
What do you think you’ll read next? Once I finish Eubeltic Descent, the next book on my list is a historical fiction novel titled A Dream of Steam by James W. Barry. Set in Michigan in the 1890s, this looks at one sawmill’s transformation from being water powered to steam powered, and the toll that updating takes on the family running it. It promises to be “a story of sailing ships and lumberjacks, aspirations and disappointment, love and heartbreak, peopled by men and women who take control of their destinies in an era of rapid change” (from the back cover).
