Welcome to the first WWW Wednesday for 2019! Well, the first one I’m participating in. For those who are new: WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme/post series currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s stand for the following questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish? What do you think you’ll read next? To participate, make a post or comment answering the three questions, link up to the host’s post, and check out what others are reading and posting about! I typically participate once a month, in the middle of the month, as a sort of halfway check-in on my monthly reading goals!
What are you currently reading?
I’ve got several books in progress at the moment: In the mornings, I’m reading a Christian nonfiction book titled Start With Amen by Beth Guckenberger. On days I babysit (which is a lot), I’m reading Throne of Grace (#1 in the Cliff Walk Courtships series) by Cecily Wolfe on my Kindle. This is a Christian Historical Fiction Romance, and while some of the characters feel a bit shallow, I’m enjoying it so far! It’s light and escapist, which is nice between some heavier books. I’ve also picked back up Thief of Corinth by Tessa Afshar, which I started last fall but had to put aside due to time constraints. I’m about halfway through, and it just keeps getting better!
What have you recently finished?
Last week I finished and reviewed The Blue Bench by Paulk Marriner. You can read my review here. This is a historical fiction set between WWI and WWII. I had high hopes, and I really wanted to like this book, but ultimately I was disappointed. In the first week of January I read Unto Him by Rebekah Morris; I will post my review of this next December (which feels like it is forever away!). I also barely finished The Carols of Christmas on New Year’s Eve to complete the 5-book Christmas reading challenge I participated in!
What do you think you’ll read next?
I plan to start reading Far Away and Further Back by Patrick Burns as soon as possible. It looks like an exciting, personal account of one man’s nomadic lifestyle, covering the years from World War 2 to the Cold War. I’m not entirely sure what to expect, but I’m still excited for it! Once I finish Start With Amen, I plan to read It’s Not What You Think by Jefferson Bethke. I’ve read one of his other books, and his conviction and persistence make his words really stand out to me. It’s Not What You Think is another Christian nonfiction book, looking at different perspectives on God. And, assuming Throne of Grace continues to be enjoyable, once I finish it I will read the second book in the trilogy, Crown of Beauty.
Are there any books you either have recently read, are currently reading, or intend to read soon that you really want to talk about? What are your thoughts on the books I’m working on?
Don’t forget to check out Sam’s post, and see what others are reading and talking about!
Until the next chapter,
