WWW Wednesday October 10, 2018


Today is the day we see whether I have been reading a lot or binging on-demand television too much. It’s WWW Wednesday! Brought to you by Sam at Taking on a World of Words we will cover the books you just finished, the ones you are currently reading and what you plan to read next.

What did I just finish reading?

I whipped through The House With a Clock in Its Walls by John Bellairs and loved it. I saw the movie this weekend and it was a lot scarier than the book but still within the parameters of family fun. I continue to wish that they cast a child that looked like the book version Lewis (who was mocked for being overweight) because I think it would have brought a unique perspective to the movie. My full review is here.

I finished The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood as well. It is now haunting me. I cannot stop thinking about it. If you haven’t read it I highly recommend it but, beware, it is terrifying. My full review is here.

I also started on the new comic book series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and the first one was fantastic. I hope to finish the series and post a review for my Sunday Morning Comics.

What am I currently reading?

Heap House is very weird. I am only about 30-40 pages in and it hasn’t grabbed me yet but I carry on because of the level of weirdness.

I am working through the Hercule Poirot Puzzle Collection. It was supposed to be fun but it is making me feel like an idiot.

Scythe has long been on my to be read shelf and it seemed thematically perfect for a Frighteningly Good Read. I am tearing through it much more quickly than Heap House.

And, I have the second Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. So dark, I love it!

What do I plan to read next?

Here be Monsters remains in my “next” pile this week. I have also added The Hound of the Baskervilles because I don’t think I have ever read it.

Tell me, please!

WWW are you reading this week?

  1. I’ve read The Handmaid’s Tale twice, and have been watching the Hulu show. The events are more terrifying now than they were the first time I read it, probably because the world in which we now lives seems to be veering in the direction of those events. Sigh.

    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  2. Great group of books! It has been so long since I read The Handmaids Tale – I should read again. Scythe looks like something I would enjoy – I’m going to mark it as a “to read.” Thanks! 🙂

  3. I’ve never read The Hound of the Baskervilles either. I think there are a lot of classics I’ve not read (kids and adults) and others I should definitely read again as I don’t remember them very well. I might make it a goodreads challenge….

  4. It’s been months since I’ve read “The Handmaid’s Tale”, and I still think about it and some of the powerful words in the book. I love that you are going to read “The Hound of Baskervilles”. Sherlock is a great choice!

  5. Some interesting reads, will have to check some of these out.

    I’ve only read The Handmaid’s Tale from the titles you’ve mentioned. I thought it was a good read. As you liked this book I think you might also enjoy VOX by Christina Dalcher. I really enjoyed reading VOX.

    Happy Reading!!!

  6. I only ever really have a passing interesting in reading Sherlock Holmes books, but I’ve always been curious about The Hound of the Baskervilles. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about it.

  7. Here be monsters looks like such a good book!
    I’ve started A Handmaid’s Tale a couple of times and it’s such a heavy book. Haunting might be the best way to explain it.
    And I hope Heap House gets better soon, it looks awesome and weird in the best way!
    Great books and great post! Happy reading xx
