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 Common Rule by Justin Whitmel Earley – Nonfiction, Christian living
This is my current breakfast read. It isn’t going to last much longer as I am flying through it!
🎧 The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart – Middle Grade Fiction
Listening to this during my commute! The same blogger who recommended the Keeper of the Lost Cities series recommended this one, so I decided to give it a try.
📚 House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski – Experimental Fiction
I have no idea how I am going to finish this 700+ page book before it is due back at the library, and there are a lot of other people on the library’s waiting list for it, but I’m giving it my best shot! So far I am not enjoying the actual reading process, but I am greatly enjoying the references to classic literature and formative myths, as well as the academic process of trying to put all the pieces of this narrative puzzle together.
📚 Laddie by Gene Stratton-Porter – Historical Fiction, lesser-known Classic
Choosing to read this book was a two-fold decision: first, because I love everything I have read by Gene Stratton-Porter, and second as an antithesis to House of Leaves. It’s lighthearted, innocent, fun, and set in the country during the late 1800s – everything that HoL is not!
What Did I Recently Finish Reading?
📚 A Very Bookish Thanksgiving by Kelsey Bryant, Sarah Holman, Rebekah Jones, J. Grace Pennington, and Amanda Tero – Collection of novellas set around Thanksgiving (which I started just before Thanksgiving, but then set aside between then and Christmas); ⭐⭐⭐⭐
What Might I Read Next?
📚 Shuttle, Houston: My Life in the Center Seat of Mission Control by Paul Dye – Nonfiction, Memoir/Autobiography
📚 Eubeltic Quest (Eubeltic Realm #2) by Nadine Keels – Fantasy with a Historical Fiction feel; I know, I’ve been saying for weeks that I am going to read this book next – I mean it this time!
Do you have any thoughts or opinions on the books I listed? What books are on your mind today?
Until the next chapter,
