WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: August 7, 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 feel free to 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?


What Are You Currently Reading?

I’m trying desperately to maintain some semblance of control as moving week is next week so I am reverting to my tried-and-true four book policy.

I’m listening to A Man Called Ove as an audiobook. It is as wonderful as everyone promised. I am about 80% through and loving it.

I am still only a few chapters into Dragonwatch, Wrath of the Dragon King because I couldn’t remember what happened in the previous book. Now I am ready to sit down and enjoy the story.

I started English Grammar: 100 Tragically Common Mistakes and How to Fix Them this week. It is a short nonfiction work with each grammatical error on a single page. I think it will be a quick read.

Finally, I have Parental Guidance on my kindle. Thankfully I selected this one yesterday since my fire alarms went off at 2:00 and 3:00 this morning. I got quite a bit of this one read in the small hours of this morning! It is setting up to be a sweet reluctant lovers contemporary romance.


What Did I Recently Finish Reading?

I finished both The Extraordinary Series by Mary Frame and Artemis Fowl, The Eternity Code. Mary Frame’s contemporary romance series was fine but I was consumed by the third book in the Artemis Fowl series. This book has some serious excitement and humor in it and kept me entertained the entire time. I cannot wait to listen the next book.


What Will I Read Next?

I still need to start and finish Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry to round out my middle grade required reading for the summer. I’ll be interested to see how differently I view this book as an adult than when I read it last.


Tell me, please!

What’s on your WWW?

    1. Oooh, that really depends. I am decently new to audiobooks so I am picky there. It has to be an exceptionally good narrator. These are great for when I am working out, cleaning the house, walking my dog or doing a terrible commute.

      Meanwhile, my ebooks are what I like to read at night in bed. I have some trouble with insomnia and for some reason, the glow of my kindle doesn’t keep me up as long as a physical book.

      In the end, my physical books are my best friends and I have been known to buy a physical copy of an audiobook or ebook that I loved.

      Which is your favorite?

  1. Four books is showing impressive restraint. Good luck with your move! I’m so glad you’re liking A Man Called Ove. I highly recommend Fredrik Backman’s My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry, if you’re looking for something in a similar vein by that some author. It’s equally as beautiful and emotional, with quirky, fun characters.

    Here’s my WWW post.

      1. Oooh, I hope you love it, or I’ll be a liar. xD I really liked Ove, but “Grandmother” is one of my all-time favorite books. I will warn that it hits aaaaall the feels. I’m not a huge crier, and it had me ugly crying in some places. Could’ve just been me because I was also close to my grandmother and lost her so I really related to Elsa, but my gosh, it’s beautiful and funny at the same time.

    1. I know! I was a volunteer on a mock trial team and now I cannot remember which is part of the book and which was part of the fake mock trial. I do remember it confusing me at points so I’ll be interested in seeing how it goes as an adult.

    1. Yes to the re-read! Or re-listen because the audiobooks are wonderful. With the movie coming out I am going back through the series and making sure I hit them all…I feel like I skipped one someone here or there.

      Ove is really wonderful. It was everything everyone promised me and more.

  3. I keep hearing about Backman, but haven’t read any of his work yet. This will bump him further up on my list.
    I recently finished Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire by John August. I’m currently reading So Young, Brave, and Handsome by Leif Enger. Next I’ll probably reread The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by CS Lewis.
