WWW Wednesday: March 24, 2021

We made it to Wednesday! Thanks, as always to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and this wonderful WWW post to keep me semi-organized. 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 forgt to check all the other participants. It is the #1 way I keep my TBR overflowing!


WHAT AM I CURRENTLY READING?

I’ve made it through the second chapter of Holy Sh*t, A Brief History of Swearing. I am determined to finish it but it is very dry. Occasionally though, the history quotes of people cursing make me laugh so hard.

I started The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai as an audiobook. This book has two intertwining stories. One, of the AIDS crisis in Chicago during the 1980s and the other, of a women’s search for her daughter. I have only just started the book but I am already looking forward to listening to more!

Finally, the library has come through with a copy of The Art of Showing Up, How to Be There for Yourself and Your People by Rachel Wilderson Miller. I love Miler’s other book, Dot Journaling – A Practical Guide and, while the two topics may not seem related, if she can explain the mystifying bullet journalling process in such a fun way I cannot wait to see her thoughts on showing up.


WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?

I finished two this week! Quintessence by Jess Redman was such a cute middle grade fantasy story. I really loved the different kids coming together to save the fallen star. There was just one thing I really didn’t like about the book and I am trying to get my mind around it before I review.

I also finished The House of the Scorpion as an audiobook and – whew! – this is a great book!!! I will be reviewing it this week (hopefully) and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.


WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?

After the collapse of my reading and writing in February I am determined to not over-plan. I will pick something that brings me joy!


Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?

  1. Aaaaah, I can’t wait for your Quintessence review. I really wanna read it. I’m so sad that her books are not available as ebooks or at the library.
    I have to admit that I have never heard of any of the other books on your list but I wish you happy reading! ❤

  2. So tough when a book can be both dry but also have those moments that make you laugh so hard!

    I’m confused by bullet journaling too, “mystifying” is the right word there for sure. A friend loves it and tried to explain and I don’t get it.

  3. What am I currently reading?
    At the moment I’m reading ‘The Great Believers’ too! Not really surprising, considering we’re in the same Book Club 😆 I read a few chapters but got caught up in life, went back again later and read on thinking “I’ll remember who everyone is eventually…” but nope. I am so confused I now have to go back and make notes on who everyone is!! Argh 🤪 I hate it when that happens. Still, I’m enjoying the book, especially all the references to places around Boystown and Lincoln Park, having lived in the area until recently.

    What have I recently finished reading?
    ‘Wild’ by Cheryl Strayed. Loved experiencing the journey with her, all the unexpected twists and turns. It made me think of the 3 day (MUCH shorter!) hikes I’ve gone on in the past and how enjoyable, self affirming, difficult, resilience building I found them.

    What am I planning to read next?
    ‘American Nations – A History of The Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America’ by Colin Woodward. Fascinated by American culture and history as I am, hopefully it’ll be a deep dive into how the early history of the different parts of America affects the politics and culture of particular states today.

    Enjoy your week of reading, Molly! Looking forward to your next reviews
