WWW Wednesday: January 1, 2020

Well, Happy New Year! With all the festivities and the planning and posting of the 2020 Challenges I nearly forgot that today was Wednesday! That means it is time for WWW Wednesday. Thanks go to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words for hosting this meme again – it’s an absolute miracle for keeping me organized! Make sure and pop over to all the other participants – you will have a fully stocked TBR forever.

One of my 2020 Challenges to myself was to more fully participate in everything and that means I am even going to list these books in the order requested. I’m so wild.

The Three Ws are:

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


What am I Currently Reading?

I have two audiobooks going which is a bit difficult but I started The Alchemyst by Michael Scott during a drive home to visit family. Then, suddenly, Me, by Elton John became available on my Libby app. I couldn’t forsake The Alchemyst and I cannot stop listening to Me. Both are amazing and the tiny bit of confusion I have in listening to two audiobooks feels completely worth it. Also, my house is staying very clean and my dog is getting twice as many walks.

I also started Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily and Amelia Nagoski this morning in preparation for a blog tour. Ummm, it is jaw dropping good. Like, I immediately made my best friend sit down while I regurgitated everything I have already read. I can only hope it continues to be this good and insightful because so far I am just blown away.

Atomic Habits by James Clear is a re-read for my January book club meeting. It was my favorite nonfiction book of 2019. Even reading it the second time I am struck by how good his tips are for forming and breaking habits.

Finally, I couldn’t help myself. I jumped with both feet into Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. It was on top of so many lists for 2019 so I am excited to read it. Alex and Henry are amazing characters and I cannot wait for the romance to bloom!


What Did I Recently Finish Reading?

I finished Don’t Panic, Douglas Adams & The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Neil Gaiman. I really enjoyed Hitchhiker’s Guide but I had no idea at all how many different mediums the story had been through. The book is fascinating and a true fan will get much more out of it than I did (and I loved it). A full review is coming asap.

Christmas Australis is a short story collection set in Australia that is both holiday themed and scary. I was surprised by how much fun it was to read scary stories at Christmas time! If you are the kind of person that enjoys Die Hard as a Christmas movie, this book might be for you.

Finally, I may not have finished my Harry Potter re-read-through but I did finish the fourth book in illustrated form. I think this is my favorite illustrated book so far. It is just stunning.


What Will I Read Next?

These are all ARC books I need to get on before the pile becomes insane. I am excited about each one and I am trying to get them all done by the end of the Month. Any suggestions?


Tell me, please!

What’s on your WWW?

    1. Oh shoot, I didn’t know about the House editions. That’s probably not something I need…..(must exercise modicum of control)

      I love Goblet of Fire as well and the illustrations brought it to life in a whole new way!

  2. I’ve heard really good things about Red, White, & Royal Blue! I hope you enjoy it. Oooh, I’m glad to see you liked Christmas Australis. You had me at Die Hard. ❤ I might just have to add it to my list to watch out for for the next Christmas season.

      1. It’s so true. XD I was raised on Die Hard, and Hans was probably my first love. Also the first time I realized people that come from other countries sound funny LOL. I mean … I was little, so give me a teensy bit of a break on that one. 😛

      2. I’ll give you all the leeway since I gave my nephew a stuff animal I picked out specifically because it’s tag said his name was Hans. Little guy is wandering around snuggling “Hans Gruber” having no idea he’s living the dream.
