WWW Wednesday: May 6, 2020

WWW Wednesday 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 about how your reading is going this week 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!

I will admit that I hit a wall (or went down a well perhaps) this weekend. I watched TWO entire television shows instead of reading. Technically, I watched both television series on Sunday when I found that I couldn’t cope with the idea that I was stuck inside again with no real end in sight. I wanted to go read outside. Or read at a coffee shop. Or read on a bus. ANYWHERE but here. I’ve taken a lot of deep breathes since then and I am marginally calmer and back to reading (most of the time).


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 am still slowly but surely working through Tap and A History of the World in 100 Objects. Both are interesting and are ideal for reading in sections.

I have just started the fifth of the 43 Old Cemetery Road series by Kate Klise and Sarah Klise. I love this series featuring a ghost, a writer, and an eleven year old boy. The format is perfect for quarantine reading too because the ghost, Olive C. Spence, spurs all technology and the whole book is made of letters and newspaper articles.

Finally, I have just 10% remaining in Matt Haig’s Notes on a Nervous Planet. After finishing Haig’s wonderful The Humans I wanted to pick up one of his nonfiction works and, honestly, I credit this book for helping me regain control of my social media and unnecessary technology use during this time. I cannot wait to finish and then review this book.


WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?

I have decided to dedicate May to reading Middle Grade Books. I know there are a couple of readathons and challenges out there but I feel pretty happy just reading on my own. Also, I didn’t sign up in time. And, really, who knows where my mood will take me mid-May. So, I started with the first four of the 43 Old Cemetery Road books and they are excellent. These pun-filled illustrated delights have also inspired me to start writing letters again. I cannot wait to sit down and finish reading the series!

I also finished Matt Haig’s The Humans. This fantastic story of an alien coming to Earth  to inhabit the body of a mathematician and falling in love with our species and the family of the body he snatched was perfect. Echoes of Haig’s research for his book, Notes on an Anxious Planet are woven throughout as the alien tries to figure out the motivation for so many of our everyday actives and social obsessions. I would love to say that I will review it soon but, seriously, this has not been my forte lately!


WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

I want to continue with my middle grade reads and these are the ones that are catching my eye right now!


Tell me, please!

What’s on your WWW?
