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?
