WWW Wednesday – February 5, 2020

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

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I started Mrs. Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca last night. It’s a little hard to describe, because a) I’m not that far in and b) it’s just hard to describe. The first few chapters are a little disjointed, presenting mysteries and then jumping to a seemingly unrelated story. I don’t think the main character, Mrs. Grace Humiston, until the third of fourth chapter. But the writing is smooth and easy to follow (until I was too tired to read). I’m looking forward to this. (BTW, it’s not about a woman who married Sherlock Holmes; it’s based on a true story of a lawyer and detective in America who was compared to Holmes.)

I’m still, slowly, reading This Chosen by Chaim Potok. I actually really like it, I just am having trouble finding time to read. I need to stay off the computer and YouTube. I need to finish it by the twenty-third, I believe, for my book club.

Last, I’m reading I Thought it was Just Me by Brene Brown. I love Brene Brown. She makes things seem so simple and clear.

I finished The Morning Mind by Dr. Rob Carter, III and Dr. Kirti Salwe Carter the other day. It went a little off for me when it started discussing Ayurvedic medicine in one chapter, which seems like an oversimplification of a complex system. And I wasn’t exactly following everything because I was supposed to download a PDF and take a quiz and I was in the car, so… But, it made me think differently about certain things and how to structure mornings and even how to improve my posture. It was a good read.

I also finished A History of Madness by Rebecca Crunden. I totally called the ending and was vindicated when I got it right. It was a great cliffhanger; I’ll have to read the next book.

So, my dad’s in the hospital again and my birthday is on Friday and unless I go down to see my family, I’ll be spending my birthday alone. So, I’m going to my parent’s house tomorrow and there’s a Barnes and Noble nearby and I’m treating myself to A Heart of Fierce and Broken. And then, I’ll also read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn since my mom lent it to me months ago and I’ve never got around to it.
