WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: November 18, 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’ve made a MESS of my currently reading stack. It started innocently enough (lie) and now I have a stack next to my bed that threatens my safety every night.

I’m continuing with The Canterbury Tales. I’m through the Friar’s story and this book is excellent. Filthy, but excellent. I cannot believe that (1) I read this in my Catholic high school and (2) that I didn’t really appreciate its awesomeness.

I am into both The Woman of No Importance and D-Day Girls. They are part of NonFiction November reading and I am really enjoying them both.

And as Believathon continues I am still balancing my nonfiction with middle grade books. The library has delivered a new Enola Holmes to me. The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan is the fourth in the series and I cannot wait to really dig into the mystery. I also started Animal Farm on audiobook for part of the Believathon’s challenge. I have never read this book but it is commonly read here in 6th grade so I am counting it as middle grade. And I have finally started Witness Protection! I am not far enough into it to form an opinion yet but I am just excited that I finally moved it from one toppling pile to another.


WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH?

I did finish What If? this week by Randall Munroe and the full review is here. If you are looking for a present for the difficult to shop for scientist / engineer in your life, this selection of scientifically correct answers to absolutely ridiculous questions would be perfect.

I also finished The Trauma Cleaner and, while I really enjoyed it, it was not about trauma cleaning as much as it was about a survivor of trauma and her story. My full review is here.

I tore through Show Me a Sign by Ann Clare LeZottle. This Own Stories tale is a middle grade historical fiction with a slow start and an absolutely riviting second half. I sat down to read a chapter or two and didn’t stop until the very end. The history of the Deaf on Martha’s Vineyard and Mary’s own personal struggles felt so real to me I just couldn’t put it down! My full review is here.

Finally, this week I read a graphic novel that I want to buy for every middle schooler in my life, Go With the Flow. This story about periods, friendship, and making social change was so clean and accessible….sigh, where was this book when I was younger?? My full review is here.


WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

Believathon is more than half way over and I need a LOT more clues so I know there will be more middle grade in my coming week. These are the three on top of my pile. I plan to read them all but if anyone has recommendations on where to start, let me know!


Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?
