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); ⭐⭐⭐⭐
📚 Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple – Contemporary Fiction; ⭐⭐⭐⭐ My Review
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,
Good luck with trying to finish the beastie, House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski before it has to go back to the library! And happy reading for the coming week! 😃 Here’s what I’ve been reading this week: https://thebookwormchronicles.wordpress.com/2021/01/13/%f0%9f%93%9a-www-wednesday-13th-january-2021/ 🙂
