WWW Wednesday

It’s Wednesday! Let’s celebrate the middle of the week with a weekly tradition! 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 reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I stared A Touch of Death by Rebecca Crunden a few days ago, and so far, I’m enjoying it. I’m not entirely sure what’s going to happen or where it’s going so far. Two of the character just risked their lives, leaving their town and walking through freezing rain and mud to escape, only for one of the character to contact her father once they got to the next town and find out everything was okay. So, I’m not quite sure what they did or why they had to run, but I’m sure it’ll all be explained.

I’m listening to The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well by Meik Wiking. It’s about how the Danish people, who are consistently ranked as the happiest in the world, manage to make themselves so happy through their devotion to all things comfortable, or hygge (hoo-ga). It’s… okay. It’s a little repetitive, and I had to skip most of the chapter on recipes because it was so boring to listen to, but it’s fine. It convinced me to break out some candles to make my space more comfortably lit and I like it.

I’m also sorta still reading Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice, but most nights, I’m too tired to get to that one. I’ll devote myself to it next week, when I have off.

I just finished Fable by Michele Packard, which I didn’t enjoy. I wanted to, because it was about a female covert operative, and the world needs more of them, but it just was not very well written. You can find my review here.

The very next book I’m reading is the ARC of The Night Country by Melissa Albert. I’m very excited for that one. After that, I’ll start The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner, which I thought sounded fun.

That’s it for me. What are you reading this week?

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?

I’m currently rereading Think of England by KJ Charles, which is a gay romance about a man named Archie Curtis who was injured in an accident during World War I that he suspects to be sabotage. He goes to a house party being thrown by the suspected saboteur only to find a web of deceit and blackmail. I love this book to death.

I also started rereading Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice. I caught part of the movie on Halloween and have been hankering to read it again, so I stopped inside a local used bookstore. I found and purchased it within two minutes.

Technically, I haven’t started My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsberg and others, but I’m planning on it today, so I’ll say I’m currently reading this as well.

I feel like I’ve read another book beside A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas, but I don’t know what it was. I really enjoyed this book and loved the twist on Sherlock Holmes. I can’t wait for the next book. I reviewed this one here.

I’m going to try Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn next since it’s literally on the top of my TBR pile. I’m thinking I might also try the first in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare and I might listen to Her Majesty’s Necromancer by C.J. Archer, because it looks intriguing.

That’s what I’m doing this week. What are you reading?

Currently reading:

I think I’m overextending myself a bit this week. I’m reading Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik, which I love, Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin, which is interesting, Rage by Jonathan Maberry, which is super intense,and I’m listening to 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do by Amy Morin, which is good. I’m enjoying everything I’m reading, I’m just reading a lot.

Recently Finished

Even though I listened to Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis a month or so ago, I bought the book and reread it in my spare time (I’m not even being sarcastic; I read during recess). I quite enjoyed the reread and got a lot out it.

Reading next: I have no idea what I’m reading next. Either something off the huge pile of books in my room, or I’ll get something I don’t need from the library. I can’t focus enough to decide.

WWW Wednesday October 16

Oh, boy, has it been a week. Especially last night when ALL THE THINGS went wrong. But I’m not here to talk about all the things. I’m here to talk about books. It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Each week, participants answer three questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you just finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently listening to 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do by Amy Morin, which is a companion to her book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, which I read earlier this year. I find myself relating to a lot of the things she says and recognize myself in a lot of the “Do any of these sound like you?” section. I hope that changes.

I’m reading Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin. I read her The Happiness Project a few years ago, and this is a companion where she concentrates on how she can be happier at home (duh). It’s a nice, easy read.

I also started Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik, and I’m already hooked. I was so sad last night when my exhausted brain stopped understanding what was going on and I had to put it down.

I’m also sort of rereading Girl, Stop Apologizing, which I had listened to earlier this year. I’m just going through my copy and making notes.

What did you just finish?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I have no idea. I have a huge stack of books and I’m barely remembering to pull from it. Instead, I keep checking out books from the library. I might read My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Mary Hartnett and Wendy W. Williams, since that’s on top of the pile.

I’m reading Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin. I read The Happiness Project by her a few years ago and liked it. I also listen to her podcast. I’m in a real mood for nonfiction fiction right now, so I decided to borrow it from the library the other night.

I’m also listening to 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do by Amy Morin. Again, I listened to her book on 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do earlier this year and got a lot from it. I decided to give this one a whirl. It was so funny today because I drove home from work, I started the chapter on how mentally strong women don’t overthink things. and that’s so me. It was like listening to a chapter all about me.

I’m also trying to read Nocturnal Blood by Villimey Mist. I got it for free off Amazon. It’s not quite my taste, however, and, like I said, I’m really into non-fiction right now, so it’s not quite working for me.

I just finished Spark Joy by Marie Kondo, which I really enjoyed. My review will be up tomorrow, but, suffice to say, I decluttered a lot while reading this book. And I feel very good about it.

I also finished The Wellness Project by Phoebe Lapine. In it, she undertakes a year long project to improve her health and well-being. She tackles diet, exercise, skin care and more. She’s also a professional chef so each chapter included recipes that I bookmarked to go back to.

Gosh, I don’t even know. I’ve got so many things to read and no desire to read them because they’re all fiction. I’ve been carrying Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik around with me, but haven’t opened it yet. Maybe I’ll start this weekend.

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?

I’m not feeling very chatty today. I had another asthma attack at work and ran off to the doctor. They prescribed some stuff and the pharmacy still hasn’t filled it. I’m a little frustrated.

Anyway, onto the questions.
