WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday May 22, 2019

It’s Wednesday, so you know what that means! *drumroll* It’s WWW Wednesday, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Hello, Sam!

WWW Wednesday is a super fun meme, all about answering three bookish questions.

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

(I always read these in the same tone of voice as “What is airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?” Just me?)

Let’s get started!

What are you currently reading?

I knew within mere seconds of hearing Dahlia Adler’s interview on an episode of Smart Bitches, Trashy Podcast, that I wanted to read her books. She’s fun and funny and smart and bubbly and outgoing, and I actually sat up from lying down under the covers to put her books on my TBR list (which is no small deal, because sleep is something I take very, very seriously!). Behind the Scenes is one of those books, and I checked out an ebook from my library last night. I didn’t get much time to read it, but what I have read, I love so far!

What did you recently finish reading?

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund (review to come; I’m behind on reviews and all things blogging due to being sick). This was…I’m not quite sure. I didn’t care for the structure or the narrator’s voice much, and the whole thing left me feeling like I’m not quite smart enough to understand this book. It didn’t quite work for me, but it was on the list for the Man Booker Prize a few years back, so it obviously worked for others!

What do you think you’ll read next?

My daughter and I stopped at the library after groceries (because that’s obviously what’s most important when you’re sick!!!) and I grabbed the stack above, straight off my TBR. I’m super, super excited about reading all of them, but I’m going to start off with Everything I Know About Love I Learned From Romance Novels by Sarah Wendell. I fall asleep every night with Ms. Wendell’s voice in my ear as I’m listening to Smart Bitches, Trashy Podcast, and I adored her Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches’ Guide to Romance Novels when I read it years ago, so now is definitely the time to pick this book up.

And that’s it for this week! Hopefully I’ll get a crapload of time to read and enjoy all of these books, because I’ve got some good ones coming up!

What are you reading this week???

    1. Thank you! *coughcoughcough* I’ve been lying down in the afternoons when my daughter naps (which she has badly needed, due to being sick), so that’s cut down on my reading time, but I need it. This crud I have is the pits!

  1. I hope you’re fully recovered — or at least well on the way.

    I tried to read History of Wolves, and I just couldn’t get into it, even though I REALLY wanted to like it. Kinda glad to have the validation of your not loving it, either. (though I regret that you had a less-than-enjoyable reading experience)

    1. SO glad it’s not just me! I found it to be a really strange book and couldn’t quite get the hype. I’m still working on my review, but yeah…definitely not the book for me either! Sorry you disliked it as well, but I’m happy to not be alone on this bench, haha! 🙂

      I’m *starting* to feel better, kind of. So far, I don’t seem to feel as achy as I have the last few days, so that’s a start and I’ll take it! 🙂
