Hi all! I hope that everyone is having a fantastic and a wonderful reading week!
WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Here’s how it works: all you need to do is answer the following three questions and link back to her, or you can put your answers in the comments on her blog!
The three WWW questions are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Currently, I’m reading:
Okay, so I think my daughter is going to make me reread every Roald Dahl book with her before we can move onto anything else (I REALLY wanted to read A Wrinkle in Time with her next, but I can’t tell her no when she bats her gorgeous baby blues at me, lol!) So we’re reading the Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl. It’s short, so I expect we’ll be done in a day or two.
Since last week I finished reading:
It was a good reading week! I took full advantage of having Spring Break off from teaching!
Yay, I had four 5 star reads this past week…outstanding!! The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying by Nina Riggs was just outstanding. This was my heartbreaking, sobbing mess read of the week, and I cannot recommend it enough.
Another 5 Star read was The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor. This has been such a hyped book that I was afraid to read it, but once I actually sat down and started it, I didn’t touch another book until I finished this one the next day.
I gave 3.5 Stars to Red Sparrow by Jason Matthews because it was way too long, too detailed, and I had to skim over those parts. Otherwise, it was complex, thrill-worthy, and enjoyable…I definitely want to see the movie now!
Tangerine by Christine Mangan was also a 5 star read! It was a one sitting read (I literally did not move from my couch until I was done), and it had a very Hitchcock vibe that I loved…I highly recommend it!
At last, I read Exit West by Mohsin Hamid! That’s a VERY good thing since I’m assigning one of my classes the book on March 29th, ha! Nothing like waiting until the last minute. The prose was so smooth and well written, and the story so complex…not completely sure about my thoughts just yet, but it was 5 Stars.
Next, I plan on reading:
The Star Side of Bird Hill by Naomi Jackson is the last book that I’m teaching this semester, at the beginning of April, in my Interpreting Literature class (I’ve never taught this class before since I’m guest lecturing at a different University this semester as well), so I need to read this next to plan for my lectures!
I had completely forgotten that I had an ARC of Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman from Edelweiss when I made my TBR for March, so it’s on my reading list now and is upcoming next since it’s published on 4/3.
Macbeth by Jo Nesbø is an ARC from Netgalley that comes out April 10th, so I want to read soon since April is going to be a super, super busy month for me with school and family things..hubby and I are taking a week-long cruise next month to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary, yay!
Well, that’s what my reading currently looks like! How about yours? What good books are you reading this week or have you recently finished? What wonderful books do you plan on reading next? I’d love to hear what you’re reading so I can have more ideas for my ever-growing TBR pile! 🙂
