Welcome to a new week of WWW Wednesday, a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. In it, we answer three questions and leave a link in the comments sharing our own posts for other bloggers to view.
The Three Ws are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What have you just finished reading?
- What will you read next?
What am I currently reading?
While I’ve made progress on everything I had started last week, I haven’t finished all of them. I finished 2 of the 3. I’m almost done with Drifting by Steven M. Cross. It’s an incredibly quick read, but I felt more pressure to finish American Dirt so I could be prepared for book club on Friday so I found myself focusing more of my attention on that. On audio, I am now about halfway through In the Garden of Spite. Boy, is that a great title for this book. The villainous Belle is something to behold, and though this is a fictional account of her ascension to the throne as one of the most prolific female serial killers in American history, I find this prospective trajectory to be quite believable.
I’ve also picked up a super short novel, which is a buddy read I’m doing with my sister and historian, Madame Morbid, whose channel you can check out on youtube. The Maid’s Version by Daniel Woodrell is a fictionalized account inspired by the Bond Dance Hall Explosion in West Plains, Missouri, in 1928. Madame Morbid has already done a video on the actual historical event and will soon be posting an on-site video, and I’ll be reviewing the novel at the same time. This is something we’ll be doing on a semi-regular basis. You can expect that series to be posted at the beginning of next week. For now, check out Madame Morbid’s detailed account of the tragedy by going to youtube.
What have I just finished reading?
I did finish and review American Dirt and had a lot of things to say about it, controversy and all. Check out my review for more details on that. Just before that, I had also finished The Reincarnationist Papers and posted my review on the 24th.
What will I read next?
On audio, I think it’s about time I checked out Antkind by Charlie Kaufman. It’s a long book and it’s incredibly complex, from what I’ve heard. I’ve chosen that one, which will probably become the “Book that makes you think” for the reading challenge. Additionally, I am picking up my Independent publisher pick, The Enlightenment of the Greengage Tree by Shokoofeh Azar. So that’s what I’m getting up to this week! How about you?
Until we meet again, happy reading!
