Sam at Taking on a World of Words is the host for this weekly peek into what everyone is, has and will be reading. You just have to answer three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
What am I currently reading?
If you follow my blog I have a Goodreads link that gives you a peek into my “currently reading” list. This is a total sham. That list is actually just the books I have borrowed from the library and have at home so I don’t forget to prioritize them and avoid paying fines. I actually have a whole bookshelf in my workspace and a giant bookcase full of books that are waiting. Sometimes, I get a lot of things from the library that are all one type of book (see my non-fiction heavy pile below) and I balance that out with books that I have on hand.
So, what is the true? Truthfully, I am currently reading these books.
So, Scott Pilgrim (volume 1), The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy, Eliza and Her Monsters….I wonder why I picked up Awkward, The Science of Why We’re Socially Awkward and Why That’s Awesome by Ty Tashiro? Goodness, sometimes these WWW Wednesdays do more that get my book stacks organized – they make me just a little more self-aware!
What did I recently finish reading?
Now that I am finished with my Frighteningly Good Reads of October 2017 I am trying to put away all of my spooky, scary and mysterious stories. But, I find myself craving some of the good ‘ol what-will-happen-next. So, I have been reading some mysteries. My favorite of the last week is absolutely The Good Byline by Jill Orr. It was a sweet story that reminded me of that television show Heart of Dixie – set in the south, sweet girl and a couple of cute boys except for there is a dead girl. I am just so thrilled that there is already a sequel!
And then there was the scrumptious Geekerella. You can read my full review here but I will just take a moment to say – loved it. The whole thing is 100% huggable.
What do I think I will read next?
These three books are on the top of my physical stack of TBR books. I really need to start cracking through my When are you Reading books for my the 2017 challenge (also from Taking on a World of Words) or I am not going to come anywhere near completing everything. So, The Last Days of Night will fill in my 1800-1899 nicely as it covers the legal battle between Edison and Westinghouse over the patent of the lightbulb.
Leonardo Da Vinci by Walter Isaacson is a tome and I am concerned that I will not successfully get through the whole thing. Not that I am a quitter! It is a library book and new and they only let you keep them here for two measly weeks. It is my hope that my fascination with Da Vinci will give me the dedication I will need for all 524 pages, quickly.
And The Paper Trail, An Unexpected History of A Revolutionary Invention by Alexander Monro is a book after my own heart. Without paper there would be no books. When people cite the wheel as the most important invention I can accept that, I supposed. For me, it has always been paper.
Now, this is a very non-fiction heavy stack so I know that I will probably also bust into some fun fiction books to balance things out.
Thanks for reading my WWW Wednesday! I would love to hear what you are currently reading and make sure and head over to Taking on a World of Words to see what so many other bloggers have put on their WWW lists!
