WWW Wednesday // October 14, 2020

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?

libraries and gardens cover📚 Libraries & Gardens: Growing Together by Carrie Scott Banks

Truthfully, I started reading this for a school project a few weeks ago, and after I got through what I needed for class, I haven’t gone back to it. It’s really interesting though! My goal is to finish it by the end of the semester.


🎧 Legacy (Keeper of the Lost Cities #8) by Shannon Messenger

As per usual, this is what I’m listening to during my commute. It’s hard to believe I’m almost caught up with everything published in this series! I don’t know what I will listen to when I’m done with this book!


8130077. sy475 📚 The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

The book two of my friends and I started chose this as our first pick, so I’m reading it in preparation for our first official meeting in a few weeks. It’s going really well; it’s much less creepy and more philosophical than I expected, and I’m liking how short each letter/chapter is so that I can easily pick it up, read a few pages, and set it down again knowing it won’t be difficult to do the same thing later.


📚 The New Librarianship Field Guide by R. David Lankes

This nonfiction book is for my Foundation of Library & Information Science course. We’re going to discuss it close to the end of the semester. I should probably be taking notes, but I’m not. I’m about halfway through at the moment, and the content is interesting, but only in small doses. When I sit and read several chapters at a time, I find my mind wandering a bit. I’m fairly confident that everything important is sinking in anyways!


18118316📚 Murder Simply Brewed (Amish Village Mystery #1) by Vanetta Chapman

I’ve only read the first few chapters of this book, so I’m not sure yet if it will really be my cup of tea. Mysteries are really hit or miss for me, with more than not being a miss. Still, this one sounds fairly lighthearted and enjoyable, and coffee plays a strong part, so I decided to give it a try.

What Did I Recently Finish Reading?

29430006📚 Making Sense of God by Timothy Keller

⭐⭐⭐⭐

I spent about a month reading through this with my morning cup of coffee. Definitely worth the read, if theology is something you enjoy.


📚 A Girl’s Guide to the Outback by Jessica Kate

⭐⭐⭐

This book wasn’t bad but it was disappointing. I’m trying to get all of my thoughts on it together for a proper review, which I will probably share next week or so.

What Might I Read Next?

I really don’t know! Here’s a complete guess.

📚 Eubeltic Quest (Eubeltic Realm #2) by Nadine Keels

This is the sequel to Eubeltic Descent, which I reviewed last year. I got an eARC, and I’m looking forward to reading it!


54125446. sy475 📚 A Very Bookish Thanksgiving by various authors

This book is one of my Top 5 Most Anticipated Fall Releases! It’s a collection of 5 stories (short story or novella length) inspired by classics and centering around Thanksgiving. They draw on some of my favorite classics, including Little Women and Jane Eyre. It hasn’t released yet, but by the time I get to read another book it might be out!

And there we go! What books are you reading and thinking about this week? What’s up next on your reading radar?

Until the next chapter,

Jana

  1. Wow Jana, what a lot of books you’ve been having on the go! The only one I’ve read is Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, which I love so I hope you and your group will enjoy it as well. I will also have to keep Keller’s Making Sense of God in mind, as I do enjoy reading Christian non-fiction, too. Happy reading! 👋📚😃

    Here’s what I’ve been reading this week: https://thebookwormchronicles.wordpress.com/2020/10/14/www-wednesday-14th-october-2020/ 🙂

    1. It is a lot, and yet it doesn’t feel like much since most of it is for school. I am generally enjoying The Screwtape Letters, and I’m glad Making Sense of God caught your eye!

      Happy Reading!

    1. I agree! And the ebook version of A Very Bookish Thanksgiving is currently having a pre-order sale for $2.99! I think it will go up to $4.99 when it publishes later this month, but I’m not 100% sure. I know it will go up some, at least.

      Happy reading!

    1. My course is going pretty well! Group projects are trying to drive me crazy, but with the semester about halfway over, the end is in sight and I’m moderately confident that all will turn out well. Thank you for asking! Happy Reading!

      1. Several different group projects at the moment! One of a presentation analyzing a database, one creating a website using certain types of resources to help customers, and one tackling a hypothetical, ethically challenging situation within the library. I’m most excited about building the website! Who would’ve thought that blogging would be good preparation for pursuing an MLIS?
