WWW Wednesday: October 7, 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?

I am so close to finishing David Copperfield! I have about 100 pages left. Actually, I was hoping that I would have the chance to finish it before this post but it is almost 7:00 p.m. here and I needed to just admit it wasn’t going to happen.

I just started The Girl and the Witch’s Garden by Erin Bowman and I am working my way through Death in Salem which takes a personal look at the individuals involved in the Salem Witch Trials.

WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?

I finished The Crucible by Arthur Miller and posted my review here. My goodness, the morals of this play are still applicable to so many situations today. I am so happy that I re-read it.

I also started and finished Castle Hangnail by Ursula Vernon which I simply could not put down! This is such a sweet middle grade story and my review is here.

Finally, I finished The Woman Who Smashed Codes by Jason Fagone. This is the story of Elizebeth and William Friedman life, love, and work with codes during WWI and WWII. I plan to have this review up for Non-Fiction Friday!

I also DNFed Code Name Lise. I was listening to this as an audiobook and while the storytelling was riveting I could not keep track of the people. Every person is referred to by their name, a nick name, their last name, a code name, a name while on assignment, and each of these seems to have a French version. I couldn’t tell what was happening and at 50% of the way through there was still no spying. I might try this book again in print and see if I can keep track of the people better but for right now – I am just annoyed.

WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

In keeping with my Frighteningly Good Reads theme for October I hope to start reading more of the books I have on my shelf!

Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?

    1. When I read The Crucible the first time I came away certain that those lying girls caused the whole thing and really, Salem’s Witch Trials were so much more complicated and nuanced than that. I would definitely recommend looking into the history of it one way or another when reading The Crucible!
