Oh my! I missed more than a week! Yikes! And I still have two of my reviews to write. It’s been a difficult month for me, but I’m slowly getting back into things. WWW Wednesday 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?
Currently reading Liane Moriarty’s newest release, Apples Never Fall, which I’m using as my book set in Australia for my reading challenge. I’ve filled a few slots in on my reading challenge this month thankfully. Though I’ve finished more than 52 books this year, I doubled up on some categories so I still have 7 books to read to finish the entire challenge not counting the ones I already have in the works. The audiobook I’m listening to is My Heart is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones. Mr. Jones will be at the Springfield-Greene County Library next week, so I want to get this one finished by then. Basically I have a lot of reading to do between now and the end of December and I hope I make it.
What have you just finished reading?
I have just finished reading the audiobook version of Unf*ck Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life by Gary John Bishop. I will likely write a pretty short review of this one today. It wasn’t exaclty earth-shattering, but it was useful for its intended purpose and I think it was quite a big dose of reality that I needed this week. The other book I finished I will post a more detailed review of. It is The Women of the Copper County by Mary Doria Russell. Russell is one of my favorite authors and I’ve read everything she’s put out to date. It took me a while to get to this one simply because I owned a copy, and I always wind up setting those aside to meet library deadlines. I finally pushed myself to finish it, however.
What Will I Read Next?
Next I’m going to pick up the book club selection for October. It’s a nice scary Halloween classic, The Exorcist, by William Peter Blatty. I’m not super squeamish like some of the other folks in our book group, so I doubt this keeps me up at night. I hope not, anyway. On audio, I am going to keep going with one I’ve already started. It’s Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. To be honest, though a classic, I don’t find Twain as charming as I used to. Maybe it’s my current mood. Not sure, but I’m still going to finish it for the reading challenge.
Until next time, happy reading!
