I love the idea of sharing reading experiences with fellow writers and bloggers, so I’m participating in the challenge from Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.
Along with other bloggers, I’ll answer the three questions and share my blog and visit others to see what they are also enjoying. Yes, I’m aware I’m a day late, but shhh…..
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Currently reading: I’m currently reading Becoming by Michelle Obama in hardback and The Dutch House by Anne Patchett on audio. I’ve been reading Obama’s book for quite some time. #1 my time for actually sitting and reading has been woefully rare between the pressures of work, kids, and the multitude of distractions I seem to find myself with of late. I’m also savoring it. I revel in her inspiring and effortless prose and I’ll be sad when I’m finished. The Dutch House is, so far, a very lyrical book. It’s narrated by the incomparable Tom Hanks. It’s a very intimate narration. A slow burner that I feel is probably building to a satisfying conclusion. Check back with my blog in a few days to see if I still feel this way. 🙂
Recently finished: I recently finished Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal. I absolutely loved it, and for more detailed thoughts, please see my entry from October 7 for a full review.
Reading next: I will next be picking up Mary Doria Russell’s newest work, The Women of the Copper Country. I’ve had the pleasure of reading every novel of Ms. Russell’s, and I’m really looking forward to diving in to this one, as her historical fiction is typically quite spectacular.
Thanks for stopping by to visit me, and feel free to share your reads in the comments and follow me if you’d like to see what I think about my current reads!
I read The Dutch House and loved it! I hope Hanks is doing a great narration. The ending is very satisfying. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
I like the sound of Tom Hanks reading anything to me to be honest, but even better if it is a good book, too! 😅I hope you continue to enjoy your reading and listening this coming week. 🙂
He’s really a fabulous reader! I didn’t even know he did audiobooks until this one. Thanks for the comment!
I hope you enjoy Becoming! I read it at the beginning of this year and really enjoyed it! It took me a while to read it, but it was such an inspirational book 🥰
Thank you, I just finished it yesterday and am working on my review now. It was a wonderful book!
