WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme 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 reading? What do you think you’ll read next? To participate, make a post or comment answering the three questions, link up to the host (Sam)’s post, and check out what others are reading and talking about! I typically participate once a month, approximately in the middle of the month, as a halfway check-in on my monthly reading goals.
What Am I Currently Reading?
I’m still working on The Rules of Love and Grammar by Mary Simses. My Instagram followers picked this one for me, which makes it even more fun! So far it’s a bit of a mixed bag; the characters tend to be kind of annoying, and I haven’t entirely figured out the plot yet, but the writing is solid and I like the way Simses has created this beautiful
(but thoroughly affluent) fictional town.
Out of the Blue is a collection of short stories by contemporary authors from Iceland. I’m enjoying reading something outside of what I usually choose, although the stories themselves are so far not terribly interesting.
What Did I Recently Finish Reading?
Yesterday morning I finished reading When Christ Comes by Max Lucado. It was an interesting take on what it will be like – well, when Christ comes, and “after” the end of the world. I did not really like the author’s tone on some topics, but overall, the theology was sound.
At the end of April I read Henry James’ The Portrait of a Lady. Honestly, I found it incredibly boring…but, it is another classic that I can now say I’ve read.
What Might I Read Next?
Last month I read The Keeper of the Lost Cities, and I hope to read the sequel (Exile) soon. Also, after I finish The Rules of Love and Grammar, I will probably read The Catcher in the Rye since I have it sitting on my shelf. I recently put Julie Andrews’ autobiography, Home Work, on hold at the library, so I expect to read it in early June if I have time.
What books are you reading or thinking about this week?
Until the next chapter,
