WWW Wednesday: August 19, 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!

The Three Ws are:

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


I am looking a little less disorganized this week! I still haven’t gotten some really old books off of this pile but I am feeling quite proud of the fact that I haven’t added any either. I keep picking up books and then stopping myself from starting them – the modicum of self-control will hopefully blossom into full fledged organization this week. Of course, this week is also when WordPress has decided to force me into block editing so….we shall see.

I finished City of Beasts by Isabel Allende this week and, my goodness, I loved this book. The story of Alex accompanying his Grandmother into the Amazon to find the answers to a mysterious beast was thrilling. This coming of age story felt so honest and inspiring – I wish I could be as brave as Alex. I cannot wait to review this one.

The only book I can say I will certainly read next is the audiobook version of The Three Musketeers. I joined the free trial of Audible months ago and they refuse to let me quit. I keep wanting to quit and you cannot until you pick a book. This month I decided I would get my money’s worth and picked a long book I might never get around to otherwise. I decided on The Three Musketeers which is a whopping 34 hours – certainly the longest audiobook I have ever read. We shall see how it goes!

Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?

  1. The City of the Beasts sounds so good – I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’m not a big audiobook person, but I did listen to Emma recently on audiobook when I didn’t want to finish it physically – it seems like a good strategy!


  2. How are you liking the Silent Patient? I remember absolutely flying through that book. I think I stayed up until 3 AM finishing it.


      1. I read it last year. Stayed up until like 3AM to finish it and was VERY shocked 😂
