WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Each week, participants are invited to answer three questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you just finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I just started Spark Joy by Marie Kondo last night, and it made me want to jump up and start decluttering. I mean, I don’t actually like that plain white tee shirt or gray v-neck, why am I holding onto them? Because I feel like I should? That’s a dumb reason to take up space in my drawer. Anyway, I’m only a little way in, but I’m enjoying it.

I’m also reading The Wellness Project by Phoebe Lapin, which is about her one year quest to take control of her health. The problem is I’m currently on the chapter about getting better sleep and I’m exhausted, so I keep putting it down to sleep. Oops!

As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes was such a treat to read. It made me want to rewatch the movie, reread the book, and just generally wallow in the beauty of it all.

I’ll probably read Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik sooner rather than later because I’m not reading any fiction at the moment. It’s literally on top of my TBR pile because I just keep piling things on the corner of my bookshelf and then checking out books from the library instead of reading. What is going on with me?

What are you reading this Wednesday? If you could do one thing to make yourself healthier or tidier, what would it be?

  1. Both my husband and I are workaholics and spend much of our time in front of computers, so it has been a struggle to keep up with housework and personal care. I’ve been listening to a lot of self-help books on audio and have tried to implement a few ideas. One thing that help me conquer a big house project was dedicating just 30 minutes a day on that project. I got it done so much faster than I thought I would. Hope you are finding some good ideas! Here’s what I’ve been reading: https://greatmorrisonmigration.wordpress.com/2019/10/02/www-wednesdays-october-2-2019/

  2. I adored As You Wish! I was reluctant to read it because I feared that he would complain or be mean but he was an utter gentleman. This is one of my favorite books AND movies so I was cautious!

    I have already added The Wellness Project to my TBR. I need to prioritize some wellness this fall and winter!

    I read the Joy of Tidying Up years ago and while she had some good points, much of it I didn’t use. Still, the parts I did use really helped me declutter when I moved!

    1. While reading Kondo’s books, I’m motivated to declutter, but, yeah, it doesn’t stick for me. But I find it a very pleasant read.

      As You Wish was wonderful. I could feel the love in every page. It made me very happy. 🙂
