WWW Wednesday – Jan. 8, 2020

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 recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

So, this week is bumping along for me. I’m back to work and back to my writing routine, which means I’m up at 4:30 so I can get my journaling and breakfast done and start writing for an hour at 5:30 and still get to work on time. Basically, it means I’m exhausted today. But that’s okay, because my coffee will wake me up and everything will be great. Really.

Onto the meme.

Currently reading:

I’m finally reading The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh, which I’ve been wanting to read forever. I’m not very far in yet, but I’m enjoying what I”m reading so far. I really like Celine and her spunk.

I’ve also started The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. It’s interesting, but kind of dry and not as readable as Atomic Habits and The Power of Habits were.

I’m listening to The Self-Care Solution by Dr. Jennifer Ashton, because I”m a sucker for books where someone does a series of month-long challenges. So far, it’s good. Dr. Ashton is narrating and she’s a lively narrator that keeps the pace flowing.

Recently finished:

I finished The Vampire Lestast on New Year’s day, which killed me because I really wanted to finish it last year. But, instead of staying home on New Year’s Eve and reading, I went to a party, which was only okay. The food was good, but some of the people were really crabby and I think I would have had more fun reading. Anyway, I really liked the book and can’t wait to read Queen of the Damned, which I got at a book sale for fifty cents.

I also finished reading Modern Girls by Jennifer S. Brown. It’s about a mother and daughter in 1935 who both find themselves pregnant at the same time, much to both their dismay. The book is how the deal with their problems and how they grow together while, at the same time, growing apart. It was very good, but sad.

Reading Next:

The only book I know for sure I’ll be reading next is The Chosen by Chaim Potok. It’s for my Jewish book club and as I didn’t read any of the books last year, I figure I should make more of an effort this year. (For the record… no one else read anything, either. It’s kind of a “book” club.)

What are you reading this week?
