Happy Wednesday! I am super excited and a little scared, because I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday in over a year! The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned. I loved doing this challenge, and am so excited to give it another shot.
To take part, all you have to do is answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What I am Currently Reading:
I am kind of all over the place right now, trying to find something to dig my teeth into. I am casually reading Edgar Allen Poe’s Collection of Stories, a copy that I have had for almost a decade, and it is slow going because his language is insufferably stuffy (sorry!) However, I am enjoying it. I am reading Donna Tartt’s The Secret History for the first time, and that is heavy. It is the book I should have read in my teens that is probably better that I didn’t, because once upon a time I almost went to Bennington College despite not getting any financial aid (dodged a bullet I think). Either way, I am really enjoying it, but not sure if my mindspace is right for something this heavy right now.
What I Recently Finished Reading:
To break up a mild case of reader’s block, I read Jenny Colgan’s Bookshop on the Shore, which is the sequel to a book I loved, Bookshop on the Corner. It was a little disappointing, but definitely helped get my back into reading. I read JK Rowling’s Tales of Beedle the Bard for fun, and when I did a Down the TBR Hole Challenge a couple of months ago, I realized I hadn’t read it yet. This struck me as weird, since I am a modest Potterhead.
What I Think I’ll Read Next:
I will probably get into Martyn Carey’s Ordinary Miracles next, since it is on my Netgalley list. It came out July 13, but I received it after the fact so I don’t feel that guilty about it taking this long since it is no longer an ARC. The premise sounds exciting (new magical world, traversing around the UK) but I am wary due to the reviews already out. I will also be reading Flowers and Foul Play by Amanda Flower for some relaxing reading. I really like her Magical Bookshop series, so this should be fun also.
That’s all for now, folks! what are you reading / looking forward to? Let’s chat!
