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 Dressmaker’s Secret (The Chronicles of Alice & Ivy #1) by Kellyn Roth
Claire will stop at nothing to provide for her daughters. An unwed mother, she does everything possible to raise them whilst avoiding her scandalous past. Some secrets are best kept, even between mother and daughter.
Alice longs for a father, especially if that means her mother will be happy. She takes matters into her own hands—but she never expected what she finds.
Despite her efforts to shelter her daughters, Claire’s ghosts rise up to haunt her, and any semblance of control over her life vanishes. If her secrets are uncovered, what will become of her family?

What Might I Read Next?
📚 Eve in Exile and the Restoration of Femininity by Rebekah Merkle
📚 Ivy Introspective (The Chronicles of Alice & Ivy #2) by Kellyn Roth
📚 On Our Knees: 40 Days to Living Boldly in Prayer by Phil Wickham
I’ve finally started reading Kellyn Roth’s The Chronicles of Alice & Ivy series from the beginning! I’ve read one of the later books and I think all of the novellas that are scattered throughout, but this will be the first time I have properly read the series as it is intended. I’m enjoying it so far! The motivation for this comes from the fact that the author is hosting a casual read-along in preparation for publishing the latest book in the series in September. Assuming I keep up with it (which is the plan at this point), I will probably write a few check-in posts and reviews along the way.
The nonfiction that I am reading in this season is also rather exciting to me, even if some of the titles sound a bit dull. How Much More? is a book that I first saw on TikTok, making it the first that I came across on that platform and then followed through with finding and reading. And it’s even more enjoyable to read than I expected! I don’t share all of the author’s theological convictions, so I’ve gone in fairly guarded but intrigued, but none of the aspects we disagree on have come into play as of yet and I am greatly enjoying her style.
What books are on your radar this week? Have you finished or started reading anything that really stands out lately?
