WWW Wednesday – September 22, 2021

Welcome to a new week of WWW Wednesday! I’m happy to have some progress to report today. Also, I’ve posted two book reviews today and still have two more to write! I’ve obviously fallen a bit behind in that department, which is why this is a nice to post to do to catch my breath. WWW is a weekly series hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. In it, bloggers share their reading progress and plans for the coming week. Let’s get started!

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 am currently reading my Oprah’s Book Club selection for the Reading challenge, The Sweetness of Water by Nathan Harris. I’m not very far into this, but I’m kicking things into high gear today because I need to get it returned to the library ASAP. It’s overdue and on hold so I can’t renew it. Oops. I also just started A Promised Land by Barack Obama and I have literally listened to this every chance I could possibly get over the past two days and have already made my way through a full third of the book. It’s very engaging and I’m enjoying it very much, so that helps. I hope to have it finished by this time next week if things keep going the way they have lately.

What have I just finished reading?

I just finished reading the book club selection on audio. It was called The Facts of Life and Death by Belinda Bauer. This was an exhilarating read, for sure! It could be really difficult to read, at times, due to the nature of the murders. I should have a review for this one in the next couple of days. I also finished my other Colleen Hoover book, Verity. My word, that was a wild ride. It’s a completely different book from It Ends With Us. I will find it difficult to review without getting into spoilers, so it might be a short review.

What Will I Read Next?

Honestly, I don’t really want to pick an audio to do next because I’m always changing my mind anyway. In hard copy, I’m going to pick up another selection by a local author, because it’s a book loaned to me by the author’s family and I’ve already been sitting on it too long. Since I’ll have caught up on library books, it’s time to pick up Apples of Stone by Phillip Marsh. Odds are you have not heard of this book or the author until now. I have no idea what to expect, and I hope to have something to share soon.

    This is really stupid, but Whenever I pick up A Promised Land, I always feel suspenseful. 🥴 I know what happens next. But, the way President Obama writes really adds to the behind the scenes suspense. The Sweetness of Water is also on my TBR.

    I hope you have a good week!
