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.
What did I Recently Finish Reading?
I don’t know if it’s the move or my inability to focus but I have been deep into middle grade books lately. I finished Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly as an audiobook and it was an incredibly interesting middle grade book. It was a familiar story line of self discovery but the layers of culture and the added perspective of the bully was a fresh take for me.
I have also been working my way through the 6-8th grade required reading for my current area and for my new town. This is how I found When Zachary Beaver Came to Town by Kimberly Willis Holt and Ghost by Jason Reynolds. If you want to see the issues in a community (or lack of awareness of those issues!) check out the required reading list for your local schools.
I also stumbled across Einstein, a graphic nonfiction book while at the library this week. It was cute and is a good primer on all things Einstein but, like most graphic novels, is limited in depth. This is also a good example of how a book can look appropriate for children but has mature themes.
What am I Currently Reading?
I am listening to two audiobooks, A Man Called Ove by Frederik Backman which I am loving. I am approximately 40% of the way through and it is really helping me when I have to do menial tasks around the house to keep it clean. Artemis Fowl, The Eternity Code (Book 3) is my car audiobook. I am maybe 20% into that one and I love it as much as the first two.
I have finally started reading Dragonwatch, Wrath of the Dragon King by Brandon Mull. Fablehaven is one of my favorite series of all time and so I am trying to make the book last but it is so difficult because I just want to sit down and read it all.
What Will I Read Next?
Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry is another required reading book for a local public school. I haven’t read this book for years and years but last year I volunteered with a mock trial team and the problem was based on this story. Of course, they change the facts so now I cannot remember which is which! I am going to do a quick re-read.
Tell me, please!
