WWW

It is time for WWW Wednesday! This week I’ve done a lot of reading, no reviewing and very little interacting. Thank goodness for Sam and Taking on a World of Words to help me hit the reset button mid-week. Make sure and check out her site for loads of other blog’s wonderful WWW posts. Also, feel free to leave your WWW below in my comments section!


What Did I Just Finish Reading?

This week I carved out a huge chunk of time for reading and finished several books. Daughter of a Pirate King and The Last Unicorn were utter delights. I also finished the audiobook of Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairytales. This was a very good narration of the classic tales done by a cast. Some of the voices were grating but they matched the characters perfectly. There were a few new ones for me and one I just cannot stop thinking about called The Rags. I also finished Preludes and Nocturnes and loved it. I cannot wait to read the next book. Finally, one night of insomnia I read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. There were things I liked, things I was confused about but in the end the story hooked me enough to warrant reading the next two.

All in all it was a great week of reading with everything landing in the good pile! Unfortunately, that puts me seriously behind with reviews.


What am I Currently Reading?

I am still chipping away at The Two Towers and, honestly, at this point I want to scream, “Just give me the damn ring and I’ll take it to Mordor!!!” I am also in the middle of two audiobooks, Homey Don’t Play That! and How to Train Your Dragon, How to be a Pirate. The story of In Living Color is fascinating and a great look at the history and rise of black comedy in America. However, I have ten chapters left in the book and it is starting to drag just a little as the cast and crew begin in-fighting. So, I started weaving in How to Train Your Dragon on audiobook. Finally, I am really enjoying Front Cover which goes through the history of cover designs. History, books and art combined makes for delightful reading!


What Will I Read Next?

I am trying to work through my physical TBR and so I have selected the next two to reflect the coming fall. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is the story of Junior who lives on a reservation but attends an all-white school. The Darkling Bride by Laura Andersen is a mix of historical fiction and mystery and I cannot wait to read it. This type of book all but screams fall to me.


Tell me, please!

How was your week?

    1. I LOVED the Count of Monte Cristo as an adult but when I read it in school (required) I hated it. Also, I probably waited until the last minute to read it and therefore had to read it all in one big chunk – never a good idea. Thanks for visiting! Can’t wait to check your WWW!

  1. You read a lot this week! It’s super satisfying to finish a bunch of books that you’re midway through. I’ve been looking to read The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian for..years, haha. I hope you enjoy it; maybe that will encourage me to finally read it.

  2. Ha – good luck with LOTR! I loved the Hobbit when I read it as a child, so a few years later (in my teens) I started LOTR – I never finished it, never went back to it and have never regretted it! I need to read some Neil Gaiman though, I have read shamefully little! The End of the Beginning and Daughter of the Pirate King look intriguing too…
