WWW Wednesday – July 7, 2021 – #wwwwednesday #bookishmemes

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?

I had to take an unexpected hiatus from In the Garden of Spite in the very final stretch. I had checked the audiobook out from Overdrive through the Springfield-Greene County Library, and I inadvertently let it lapse. Now I’ve been moved to the bottom of the hold list, so I have also put the physical copy on hold and will see which one comes available first so that I can finish it. It’s a fairly long book, and that’s why I rarely get long books on audio. Hopefully I will get a hold of a copy soon so I can finish the final few chapters.

In its absence, I have checked out How Lucky by Will Leitch, and it’s a delightful and humorous audiobook with a bit of a mystery thrown in. The narrator is charming, and it’s a very short audio, unlike its predecessor I didn’t get to finish. I thoroughly expect to finish this one in the next couple of days.

I’m also reading The Englightenment of the Greengage Tree, my choice for a book from an independent publisher for the reading challenge. I have just started this one, but it’s immediately engaging and I see myself really enjoying the novel.

What have I just finished reading?

It’s been a pretty banner week for me except for not being able to finish my audiobook just yet. In hard copy, I finished both The Maid’s Version, the review for which I posted just yesterday, and Drifting by Steven M. Cross. I had planned on finishing this one much sooner but book club selection and library due dates really got in my way of taking time to read it. I look forward to connecting with Cross to discuss his book. What a fascinating read! I also expect to post my review either tomorrow or Friday.

What will I read next?

Next, I am going to read a poetry collection for the reading challenge, New Poems by Rilke. I very rarely read poetry and really should introduce myself to more. I know Rilke is considered one of the great lyrical poets and I look forward to diving into this. I really have no idea what I’ll read on audio after I finish How Lucky. I’ll leave that one up to fate and my mood at the time.

That’s it for me this week! Look for a review and my TBR update to be posted tomorrow. Until then, happy reading!
