WWW Wednesday: March 11, 2020

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! My favorite meme was last hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and has found a new home with Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. Don’t forget to check all the other participants. It is the #1 way I keep my TBR overflowing!


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?

The delightful pairing of Quackery and the second Flavia de Luce mystery has made my week full to the brim of smart humor and poison. Quackery is much funnier than I thought it would be and I am becoming, once again, insufferable in sharing tidbits of information to everyone. And, as you’ll see below, I have become a huge fan of Alan Bradley’s books.

Also, I watched the new Emma movie last week and enjoyed it so much that I immediately borrowed and audiobook from the library. I am already 30% of the way in and loving it. For someone who professed to be uninterested in Jane Austen for so long I am quickly shaping up to be a massive fan.


WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH?

While I didn’t get any posts up this week, I did have a great week of reading. I finished the first Flavia de Luce mystery, Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. This adult mystery features the brilliant and incorrigible 11-year old Flavia and I loved every single page. Clearly, since I couldn’t wait even two minutes before jumping into book two. Review soon!

I picked up The Duff after watching the movie. Unfortunately, the movie did a lot of improving on this story and I didn’t enjoy the book much at all.

The Dark Lord Clementine was great fun! This middle grade fantasy features Clementine, the daughter of the Dark Lord, who is trying to hold their castle together when her father is cursed. A sweet adventure about self-discovery and finding your place in the world and in your home. A full review will be coming soon!

Finally, I finished listening to Cary Grant, A Class Apart. Graham McCann’s autobiography of Cary Grant carries the reader through his life from birth to death with intimate looks at every stage. I have loved Cary Grant since the first time I laid eyes on him and this book did nothing to shake that love. You guessed it – full review soon!


WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

I received Picard as a gift this month and I am barely restraining myself from starting it so I know it will be next. I also want to continue my Austen parade and I have Persuasion on my physical TBR. But, all of this might be changed when I finally work out my TBR for the 2020 Magical Readathon. I cannot wait to participate again this year!


Tell me, please!

What is on your WWW?

  1. Oh how funny, I was just talking about Cary Grant on another WWW post. He’s my favorite actor of all time, I’m going to have to check that out.

    How are you liking the Picard series? I didn’t know there were books! omg

    1. A newer Cary Grant biography came out but I am still waiting for the library to cough up a copy for me. This one was excellent though!! And, I agree, he is my very most favorite.

      As for Picard – I found it on another WWW post! I wish I could remember who because I would love to give them credit. This is something I need to get better at this year.

    2. Aaaaand, I didn’t answer your questions about Picard. I haven’t had the chance to see the series yet but this book pre-dates the new shows is supposed to bridge between the end of Enterprise and the new series. I cannot wait!!

    1. It can really change how you feel about things can’t it?!? I was just blown away because in the movie Biana is pretty strong and in the book she feels more desperate. Buuuuut, if I read the book first I might not have enjoyed the friendship component as much. So weird!

  2. OK I could have sworn I’d commented already but guess not!

    I was talking about Cart Grant earlier today on another WWW post. He’s my favorite actor of all time.

    I love Picard, didn’t know there are books!! I’m going to have to get that.

  3. I’m so glad to read that you loved Flavia! The good thing is that there are lots of books featuring her and you have so much to look forward to! I’m also glad to read that the new Emma is enjoyable!

    1. I have Persuasion on my shelf also! I don’t think I would have enjoyed Emma if I hadn’t just seen the new movie. Listening to the audiobook is really just me re-watching the movie in my mind. Now you have me extra excited for Persuasion!

  4. I haven’t heard of Quackery, but gosh, I’m going to have to look that one up! It sounds really funny and like something I love! Never be ashamed of sharing random tidbits of information. 😉

    The Dark Lord Clementine sounds super cute, too! I love the idea.
