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?
📚 Piranesi by Susanna Clarke; Science Fiction
Piranesi’s house is no ordinary building: its rooms are infinite, its corridors endless, its walls are lined with thousands upon thousands of statues, each one different from all the others.
📚 Americanon by Jess McHugh; Nonfiction – History & Literature
Jess McHugh brings alive a cast of core American figures—Benjamin Franklin, Dale Carnegie, Emily Post, and more—to demystify the origins of the great American fable.
📚 Disruptive Witness by Alan Noble; Nonfiction – Theology (reading for the third time)
Disruptive Witness casts a new vision for the evangelical imagination, calling us away from abstraction and cliché to a more faithful embodiment of the gospel for our day.
What Did I Recently Finish Reading?
📚 Jo: A graphic Novel Retelling of Little Women (Sort of) by Kathleen Gros; YA Fiction; ⭐⭐⭐
A modern-day graphic novel adaptation of Little Women that explores identity, friendships, and new experiences through the eyes of thirteen-year-old Jo March.
What Might I Read Next?
📚 Discernment (Legacy Chronicles #3) by Lauren H. Salisbury – I know, I’ve listed this book here a couple of times now! I really want to read it, I just haven’t found a time to fit it in yet.
A misfit, a fugitive, and a sacred destiny. Everything changes when all three collide.
📚 The 12 Cats of Christmas by Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick – This one came up while I was working on Monday’s post and since it’s a short story I’m hoping to read it before the end of the month (a slight nod to Christmas in July, perhaps).
“What you need is a cat.”
A fun batch of books this time! Not a whole bunch, and I’m not moving through anything very quickly, but it’s what I can keep up with. I’m enjoying a wide variety of genres at the moment, too, and honestly I’m looking forward to reading a Christmas book very much. While the longer days are nice, I’m one of those people who would live in the fall and winter seasons all the time if I could.
What books are in your orbit this week, Reader? Is there a certain genre you’re really enjoying these days?
Until the next chapter,
