WWW Wednesday: May 18, 2022

Mea culpa. How did it happen that the last time I posted anything was in March?!? At least I can say I was reading!

Thanks, as always, goes to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words for hosting the meme that keeps my TBR under some semblance of control and brings me back to blogging.

If you want to participate in WWW, feel free! The more the merrier (and the bigger my TBR becomes). All you have to do is answer the Three W’s:

  • What did you recently finish?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • And, what do you think you’ll read next?


The library has finally delivered my long awaited Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche. I really want to purchase all of these books but the publisher will not put out the series in matching covers. I just cannot bring myself to have them all mis-matched. I haven’t even started the book, really, because my loan only came through this morning. No opinion yet but I expect to love it!

The library did take back Unwinding Anxiety and, after waiting 10 weeks and seeing no hope, I have purchased my own copy. I am looking forward to getting back into this book.


I finished a ridiculous stack of books during my hiatus from posting. Most of them have been Lucy Score romances off kindle unlimited and I am decently obsessed with the author. I think I have only read six of her books and, thankfully, she has at least ten more.

I also tried, and failed to read The Power of Now by Eckhard Tolle. I put this in the DNF pile approximately half way through. I just could not get past the circular talk and the nonsense.

I finally managed to get my hands on two Elizabeth Wein books – The Pearl Thief and Code Name Verity and loved them both. I cannot wait to read more of her books.

I also, quite randomly, picked up and read Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin. This book was wonderfully weird.

No idea!

Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?

  1. Ah, lovely Tales of the City – it is a funny one, though! I’m currently on Snow Widows by Katherine MacInnes, about the women left behind by the men of Scott’s tragic expedition to the South Pole. I just finished at lunchtime Larry McMutry’s Desert Rose, a bittersweet novel about a Las Vegas showgirl and her terrible daughter, for my Larry McMurtry Project. Up next, one of two British Library Women Writers reprints and a bit of The Virago Book of Women Travellers.

      1. exactly…. black dove white raven had me researching Ethiopia to see if the facts that were in the book were true and it was definitely true and fascinating and interesting.

  2. I hope you get as much out of Unwinding Anxiety as I did. Tales of the City is one of my favorite books, I’m glad you loved it! I wonder if it would feel dated today, I plan to reread it soon. They are some of my favorite book characters. Also glad you loved Code Name Verity, I haven’t read Pearl Thief but should!
