WWW Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Hey, it’s that day after Tuesday and before Thursday–must be WWW Wednesday!

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words—and shown to me by Aurore-Anne-Chehoke at Diary-of-a-black-city-girl.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Easy Peasy George & Weezy, no?

What are you currently reading?

I’m reading Dead Wrong by Noelle Holten (so different than the first in the Maggie Jamieson series, but just as good) and am listening to The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton, James Cameron Stewart (Narrator)—Pro Tip: don’t start that audiobook on a day when you’ll be interrupted at work 30 seconds to 5 minutes. Never a good way to start an audiobook, but with this one, it’s worse than normal.

What did you recently finish reading?

I just finished C.S. O’Cinneide’s The Starr Sting Scale and my last audiobook was Venators: Magic Unleashed by Devri Walls, Daniel Thomas May (Narrator).

What do you think you’ll read next?

My next book should be The K Team by David Rosenfelt (as part of my great NetGalley Catch-Up). I’m not sure what my next audiobook will be. Maybe Cursor’s Fury by Jim Butcher, Kate Reading (Narrator).

Hit me with your Three W’s in the comments! (no, really, do it!)

  1. I just finished re-reading C.S.Lewis’s “The Horse and His Boy”, my favorite of the Narnia chronicles. I re-read my favorite books from childhood when I feel stressed out or depressed (which I have been due to the sad state of our election system and the fact I live in a COVID-19 “hot spot.”

    I am currently reading “Milkman”, a Booker Prize winner by Anna Banks. At first it was a slog (I am reading it for a book group) but about 100 pages in I got accustomed to the 2-page-long paragraphs and jumpy time line and found myself engrossed.

    Next I plan to read “Season of the Witch”, David Talbot’s history of the last third of the 20th century, focusing on San Francisco’s “Summer of Love” and its causes and consequences. It’s history that I lived through. My son read it and asked me “Mom, how did you ever decide to have kids in a world like that?” so I thought I’d better read it and see what was being said about my time.

    1. I dunno if I’ve ever heard anyone say that about The Horse and His Boy–cool.

      2-page-long paragraphs? Gotta be a heckuva writer to pull that off. And even then, I can see it taking 100 pages to get into it (especially if you throw in a jumpy timeline).

      That Talbot book looks a little heavy–but very interesting.

  2. I’m about 1/2 way through Cursor’s Fury. Great stuff! 😀

    I just finished up “A Very Short Introduction: Entrepreneurship”, am currently reading “Two Noble Kinsmen” by Shakespeare and I have a Jeeves&Wooster book up next.
