Welcome to the first installment – on this particular blog of mine – of WWW Wednesday, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words! The rules for this meme are simple – bloggers and readers are to list what they’re currently reading, what they’ve just completed, and what they’re planning to read next, hence the three W’s!
I’ve got a bunch – six to be exact – books listed as currently reading on Goodreads right now! The first is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring, which I began reading over a year ago! While I’m enjoying the first installment in the Lord of the Rings series, I’ve put it on the back burner in favor of other books for challenges, etc.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss is the next book on my list. Although I’ve only made it through 2% of the book – LOL – I’m already sucked in and know I’ll love the whole story.
Rothfuss’ work has come highly recommended and I love his writing style!
I’m looking forward to being able to get back to this behemoth, which will probably be in early 2020 to start the year off fresh, but hopefully, I’ll be well beyond 2% by then!
Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines is my third currently reading – and I use that term loosely – book on my list.
Thus far, I’m loving this story. I would be finished with it by now; however, I had it as a loan from the library and it got sucked back into the stacks before I could continue.
So, I’m waiting for the first installment of The Field Party series to show back up in my active loans list!
Origin by Dan Brown is the fourth book I’ve got going. I’m 60% through it, but it’s pretty heavy reading to be honest.
Although I’m loving the story and heart Dan Brown’s books in general, I just needed to put it aside in favor of lighter reading for a bit.
I’m also loving the nonfiction book by Alison Weir, The Six Wives of Henry VIII, which incredibly thoroughly covers seemingly every aspect of life, and those of the main players, in the time of Henry VIII.
Like Until Friday Night, this book was ripped from my eyes by the library; however, I have another hold on it and I’m next in line to get it onto my loans list.
FINALLY – the book I’m actually actively reading is Murder, She Knit by Peggy Ehrhart. I made the silly mistake of requesting and being granted my wish to read this cozy mystery, which is the fourth book in the series!
I’m reading from book number one so I’ll know more of what’s going on before getting to the most recent book, Silent Knit, Deadly Knit, which takes place during Christmastime, making it perfect timing for a holiday read!
Most recently, I’ve finished reading some short and sweet books, mainly to keep up with my Goodreads goal for the year; I’m still 12 books shy of my reading goal!
I’ve read and completed three books in the past couple of weeks – the Graphix edition of Boy-Crazy Stacey by Gale Galligan, The Voice on the Radio by Caroline B. Cooney, and Sisters by Raina Telgemeier.
Well, there are tons of books I’d love to read immediately, but, with my six-book currently reading shelf, I believe I shall focus on those at this time – and probably for a while! I will, however, read shorter books in between the longer books, primarily to attempt reaching that Goodreads goal this year!
