WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: October 14, 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 W’s 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 need to just sit down and finish Witches: The Absolute True Tale of Disaster in Salem already. It is a short book but I found myself distracted by a good many other wonderful ones this week!

I am half way through Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost which I am loving. I have never read it but I had seen the movie with Patrick Stewart as the Ghost and it is easy to picture him when I read this book. This story is shockingly funny at times. The ghost is just too dear!

I’ve also started listening to The Winterhouse by Ben Guterson and I am approximately 25-30% of the way into the story. This mystery begins with 11 year old Elizabeth being sent on a paid for vacation by herself to Winterhouse. Elizabeth is a puzzle aficionado and wordsmith and Winterhouse is perfect for her – or is there more than meets the eye?

Finally, in an attempt to continue my momentum coming off of David Copperfield I am going to re-read The Canterbury Tales. Is may not entirely be a Frighteningly Good Read but, through the years, I found that reading only “spooky” books takes away a bit of the fun.


WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?

I finished David Copperfield! This was a great story and I enjoyed it tremendously. I am going to treat myself to the new movie staring Dev Patel on Friday. I didn’t review the book but I did give some tips and tricks that helped me get through this massive book. Those can be found here.

I also picked up How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous by Georgia Bragg last week from the library. I picked it up rather impulsively and read it obsessively. This middle grade non-fiction was awesome and I found myself gasping aloud and calling friends to say, “Can you believe this?!?”

I’ve struggled with insomnia this week. As usual, my trusty kindle was there for me. Sadly, one of my favorite contemporary romance author’s story The Bachelor Club wasn’t great. Lovely female lead, wretch of a male and the motivation of the characters was missing. I don’t plan to review it.


WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

October is flying past me and I need to read more, more, more!!! I want to read all of the books on my FGR reading list even though I know it won’t happen. One of these will absolutely be next though!


Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?

  1. The Winterhouse sounds so good! Do you prefer listening to audiobooks, or reading? Also, I hope you enjoy the new David Copperfield movie. It looks like a really fun and fresh take on the book. Happy reading 🙂

    1. I love both reading and audiobooks. I struggle with listening to middle grade audiobooks because I feel like the narrator is also pandering just a bit. Non fiction audiobooks are my favorite though.

      I cannot wait to see the new David Copperfield movie. I miss going to the theater and having to wait for it on DVD seems interminable.

  2. Haha I know what you mean about October flying by and needing to more! I have not actually got to any of the books I listed for my favourite reading event: R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, yet!! Looks like you have been doing some very suitably spooky reads that would count for the event though and I am pleased you enjoyed David Copperfield. Happy reading in the coming week! 👋📚🎃
