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?
📚 The Grace of Enough: Pursuing Less and Living More in a Throwaway Culture by Haley Stewart
Nonfiction, Memoir, Christian Living
I’m really enjoying this! As a non-Catholic Christian, it’s interesting to see the documents the author uses to support her statements. The farm is such a wholesome and enjoyable setting, too.
📚 South Pole Station by Ashley Shelbey
Contemporary Travel Fiction
Reading this book promises to be a lot like trekking across Antarctica: a bit of an adventure, sometimes dull and disappointing, might seem endless about halfway through, but worth it in the end.
I really don’t know how I feel about this book yet; I just really wanted to make that analogy.
📚 Angels at the Table by Debbie Macomber
Christmas Romance Fiction
Since the very beginning of when I started working in the library (so close to ten years now), I have been intrigued by Macomber’s books, especially the Christmas ones. I’ve always thought I should read one to see what the fuss is about and whether the stories live up to their pretty covers, and now that I have finished listening to all of the Keeper of the Lost Cities audiobooks that are out so far, this seemed like a good time!
📚 Faithful in Love (Cliff Walk Cousins #1) by Cecily K. Wolfe
I’ve set this one to the side recently, as reading on my Kindle is a bit inconvenient at the moment. I’m pretty far in though, and look forward to finishing it soon!
What Did I Recently Finish Reading?
📚 The Silence by Don DeLillo
Contemporary, Experimental Short(er) Fiction
📚 Legacy (Keeper of the Lost Cities #8) by Shannon Messenger
Young Adult/Older Middle Grade Fantasy
Dramatic! Exciting! Cliffhanger!
What Might I Read Next?
📚 A Very Bookish Thanksgiving by Various Authors
I decided to save this one for the week of Thanksgiving. Surprisingly, I get four days off for Thanksgiving this year! I am looking forward to reading, hanging out with my family, and baking a lot. Probably also watching fluffy movies and decorating. (As a side note, I’m trying to hold off on decorating for Christmas until I am done with this semester’s classes, but I keep seeing cute and cheap decorations! It is so hard to say no, but I keep telling myself I’m experiencing the full effect of Advent, which is meant to be a time of anticipation, early.)
📚 The Lost Crown by Sarah Miller
I came across this book on my digital TBR list while preparing Monday’s Tackling the TBR post. When I realized the my library system only owns one copy, I decided to go ahead and reserve it to read right away so that I don’t miss out on it. Given the volume of books I really want to read soon, I can’t promise it actually will be next, but at the moment it is looking likely!
I only listed the three most likely books in the “might read next” section, but I went a little overboard with reserving books from the library recently and have quite a stack of them ready for me to finish up class and shift my attention to them! So we will see what ends up becoming prioritized. Probably holiday stories, mostly. Probably not the “teach yourself to code” book. But, who knows!
I love this beautiful season. I hope you’re finding beautiful and enjoyable things in life, Readers. Regardless, I hope you’re reading good books. Tell me about one in the comments!
Until the next chapter,
