WWW Wednesday – September 15, 2021 #wwwwednesday

Well, I’m back. Last week I missed WWW Wednesday due to the sickness in our house that kept me at home. The kids keep me a bit too busy for blogging so I tend to not get anything done. Thankfully, that means I have nothing but progress to report this week.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme where bloggers share weekly progress and plans for future reading endeavors. This meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

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’m currently reading the book club selection on audio. It is The Facts of Life and Death by Belinda Bauer. So far this is an incredibly exciting book and its kept me on the edge of my seat. Things are really starting to get moving at this point. I’m also reading Verity by Colleen Hoover. It’s a very fast read, and I also find this one very exciting. It’s been difficult to put down, which has caused me to get a bit less sleep this week because I keep staying up late to read more. I hope to finish it today.

What have I just finished reading?

Speaking of Colleen Hoover, I just happened to read two books of hers almost simultaneously. And that was really just a coincidence and not something I did purposefully. They are two very different books. The one I just finished is It Ends With Us. I haven’t yet gotten my review finished of this one. I listened to it on audio, and it was a really enjoyable read despite the heavy subject matter. I also finished the historical fiction novel I was reading, The Girl in His Shadow. I really enjoyed this one and I’m glad I stumbled across it. I have both of these reviews to work on this week, but I’m doing a lot more reading due to due dates at the library for books that I can’t renew.

What Will I Read Next?

Next I will read The Sweetness of Water by Nathan Harris. I’m finally getting back to the reading challenge. This one takes the place of the Oprah’s Book Club pick for the reading challenge. I really need to get cracking on the last few categories or I won’t get finished despite surpassing the 52 books for the end of the year. I’ve done a lot of duplicating, especially lately. I will also probably get the chance to pick up A Promised Land by Barack Obama. It came available for me on Overdrive but I put a freeze on it until I get the book club book finished. I anticipate it will be ready for me again in a few days, hopefully just enough time for me to get done with the other one. Then I’ll be able to tackle this monster of a book, which will also take a place on the reading challenge as the Nonfiction New York Times bestseller.

That’s it for me! What have you accomplished this week? What do you plan next! Thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!

  1. I enjoyed It Ends with Us. That reminds me that I have an unread Hoover book on my Kindle: Layla. Enjoy your books, and here’s MY WWW POST

    • That was my first Hoover book, which is interesting because it’s supposed to be different than the other books she writes because it is much more personal. Aside from the odd naming conventions she uses, Verity is a COMPLETELY different book. Doesn’t even feel like the same author.

  2. Verity was so so dark oh my goodness 😭 are you enjoying it?
