WWW Wednesday: July 24, 2019

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s simple. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your own WWW post or a comment with your responses. The best part is visiting other participants to see what they are reading. It is my favorite meme of the week!

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Note: I cannot help but list them in chronological order. It’s the history enthusiast in me. Let’s see what I have been reading!


What did you recently finish reading?

pinned

I was lamenting my lack of blogging this week. I have been reading so much and not writing at all. I did get two posts up this week, one about Factfulness and one on Norse Mythology but, apparently, that cut into my reading time. Ah well, at least I was doing something!

The only book I finished this week was Pinned by Sharon G. Flake. I volunteer with various groups of kids and I like to read books off of the required summer reading list. Pinned is for a local school for seventh grade. I can’t say I enjoyed it as much as I will enjoy talking about it with the students I hope to see soon. It was a unique story of two students trying to overcome internal adversity and had some wonderful themes about perseverance.


What are you currently reading?

I started Ghostanother required reading for a local school. I am only a few chapters into the book so I haven’t formed an opinion quite yet.

I am so close to finishing the audiobook of Hello Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly and I have so many thoughts about this middle grade book.

I am slowly reading The Extraordinary Series by Mary Frame. I am happy to say that I haven’t read it for two days. This is a good thing as it is my designated insomnia book. That’s two nights of sleep – in a row!

I also started listening to A Man Called Ove as an audiobook. I am a few chapters into it and my inner old-person is really enjoying the character of Ove.


What do you think you’ll read next?

I have been holding onto this book because I know once I start it I won’t be able to put it down. Fablehaven is one of my favorite series of all time.


Tell me, please!

What’s on your WWW list?

  1. A Man Called Ove is one of my favorite books (and Fredrik Backman is one of my favorite authors). I hope you love it! It’s so easy to relate to Ove in all his curmudgeon ways. xD I haven’t read Fablehaven yet, but I keep seeing it at my library and thinking I should pick it up one of these days. Hope you enjoy!

    Here’s my WWW post.

  2. Oooh, I’ve heard so many people rave about A Man Called Ove! I still need to read it, but I hope you enjoy it!
    And Jason Reynolds! I’ve only read Long Way Down by him, but I really enjoyed it.
    Happy reading!
