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!
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 tearing through The Poison Squad by Deborah Blum. She peppers the history with just enough I-can’t-believe-it facts that you just don’t want to stop reading.
The Pen Commandments will be finished this week and I have really enjoyed this book. It is clear, concise, and easy to apply advice for beginning writers of any age.
And I have just started Aurora Burning. I am a little afraid based on the response from other readers that I will be devastated by the ending of this one but I feel strong enough to take it!
WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?
I finished both Winterwood and Undefeated this week. Winterwood was not for me. This is no reflection on the book or the writing, I was just in no mood for how long it took for the main character to stand up for herself. In another mood it might have been a great coming of age / powers story but not right now.
Undefeated, however, is the story of the Carlise Indian School’s Football Team. Jim Thorpe was the first biography I ever read in elementary school and I will always pick up any book featuring him. I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed this middle grade book that was, at its core, about the history of football. That review will be up Friday for NonFiction Friday!
WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?
Every summer I look through summer reading lists and pick a few that I have never heard of and classics that I somehow missed reading. Both A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and To Kill a Mockingbird were books I wasn’t required to read in my youth and so…I just haven’t. I have a copy of each book and I think I will crack into one of them this week.
Tell me, please!
