WWW Wednesday

Okay, I’ve made three days this week. I can do two more. Then, I’ll be on vacation. I can make it!

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

What are you currently reading?

What did you just finish reading?

What are you planning on reading next?

Currently Reading:

So, here me out on Interview with the Vampire: I haven’t touched it since Thanksgiving but I’m totally going to finish it next week when I’m on vacation. It’s my goal. I’ve been dithering around too much with it and just want to get through.

I’m about halfway through Finale by Stephanie Garber, and I’m really liking it. I’ve just been so tired before bed at night, I’m not getting through as much as I thought I would.

Beyond the Grave by C.J. Archer is the third Ministry of Curiosities books and, while I’m not very far into it, I’m still enjoying it. I’m just getting a little frustrated by the romance. I want it to progress and it’s regressing before my eyes.

I started On Writing by Stephen King last night. So far, it’s pretty interesting. I’m impressed by his dedication to writing at an early age. I spent every day of my life from childhood to earlier this year insisting I would never, ever be a full time writer. Now, that’s all I want to be.

Just Finish Reading:

I finished The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg over the weekend and thought it was interesting. It had some great explanations on how habits form and how we can exert control over changing them.

Her Majesty’s Necromancer by C.J. Archer was very good. I thought the the falling action of the book went on a little long. It didn’t have as exciting as climax as the first book, bu the ending made it all worthwhile.

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman was okay. I’m not really into contemporary fiction, especially adult contemporary fiction, but this was cute enough. I’m just not sure if I agree with the message. Or, at least, what the book club questions at the end are implying the message is. I have no idea of Waxman intended it to be read the way I’m reading it, but, yeah. My review will be up next week.

What I’m reading next

I plan to read ALL THE BOOKS next. I borrowed a literal ton of books from my sister at Thanksgiving and bought a few more from Thrift Books. But, I think the winner will be:

It’s in my possession, it’s supposed to be good, and I’m going to devour it.

What are you reading this week?

  2. I absolutely LOVE Stephen King’s On Writing! It’s always the first thing I recommend people when they’re looking for books on writing. I mean, it’s even in the title, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think I had pretty much the same experience as you as far as The Bookish Life of Nina Hill goes. It was … okay. Also not really my cup of tea, either. Probably because I prefer coffee. xD

    Reading all the books next is the best plan ever. That’s my 2020 goal, before all my unread books here rise up and overthrow me. Happy reading!

    Here’s my WWW post.

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only one who was underwhelmed by the Bookish Life. It was fine, but just… eh. It’s too bad, because I heard the author on a podcast and really liked her. Just, her book didn’t do it for me.

      I’m really enjoying On Writing. I shouldn’t have waited so long to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Happy reading!

      1. The good thing is that authors aren’t their books. But I feel you. There are authors whose work I just want to love as much as I love the author, and I just … don’t. It’s a bit of a shame, but at least you can follow the author still lol.

    1. The only other Anne Rice book I’ve read outside of the Vampire Chronicles was the Mummy, which I really enjoyed. Oh, wait. I also read the first in the Sleeping Beauty books, which was… really eye-opening. ๐Ÿ™‚
