WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: September 23, 2020

WWW Wednesday is the post I look forward to every week! Thanks, as always to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and this wonderful WWW post to keep me going. If you want to join me, 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 admire. 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?

This week I am still reading David Copperfield and still enjoying it tremendously. I am more than 50% through but a little behind on the daily reading assignments I have made myself. Those twenty to thirty pages have kept me trucking through this massive tome. I hope to catch up today and plan to be done in the beginning of October.

I am also reading A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies by Bartolome de las Casas. It is tragic reading, short and terrifying in its accounts of the destruction wrought by the Europeans against the indigenous people of the Americas. I am determined to finish it but find myself perpetually furious that this writing was done in the 16th century and the treatment continued…

To alleviate the anger and sadness caused by A Short Account I have been listening to The Ghost Hunter Next Door by Danielle Garrett. It is a light and cute mystery with some romance angles and I am enjoying it. I have started Halloween early this year and I can hardly wait to get into my annual Frighteningly Good Reads.

Finally, I got a digital copy of The Woman Who Smashed Codes by Jason Fagone. This book featured the story of Elizebeth Smith who married William Friedman and became an expert on code making and breaking through both WWI and WWII.


WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?

This week I finished The Diary of Anne Frank. I have no intention of reviewing it – not for my usual reason (that I don’t review books I didn’t enjoy) but rather because I don’t feel that it is a book that needs to be reviewed.

I also finished Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Everyone who raved about this book was totally right and I was obsessed with all the characters in this book. My full review is here if you are interested!

I also finished Enola Holmes: The Case of the Missing Marquess by Nancy Springer. I loved it and, happily, the Netflix movie is on tonight. I have cleared my schedule, bought popcorn etc and I am going to have a wonderful mid-week movie night! My full review is here.


WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

With so few days left in September, I know I probably won’t finish my whole September Reading Plan so I am going to prioritize the books I have borrowed from the library. One of these three will be one of the next books I read.


Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?

  1. So many good books on this list! The Woman who Smashed Codes sounds so good – it is great how much attention the women of WWII have been getting recently. Also, I have been meaning to read Enola Holmes, and the movie was SO GOOD! I hope I didn’t make a mistake in watching the movie first, but I couldn’t resist. Hope you ended up enjoying it 🙂 Happy reading!
