Hi all! I hope that everyone is having a fantastic and a wonderful reading week! And it is finally spring, yay!! I hope wherever you are that it is finally warming up…it’s a only supposed to be a lovely 42 degrees (Fahrenheit) here in NC today, which is totally not normal, lol!!
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:
I’ve been leaning towards reading more contemporary, literary, cultural, or family fiction recently and The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer checks the boxes for contemporary and literary. It’s been on my radar for a while since it explores some very relevant feminism themes. I’m almost halfway in, and I can say the writing is brilliant. I’m loving it!
I finally started The Star Side of Bird Hill by Naomi Jackson, and it is amazing so far! It is probably the best book that I’m lecturing about in my Interpreting Lit class this semester! I can’t wait to finish it…fingers crossed it stays as good as it has been!
I could not be more excited that my daughter and I are reading (well, rereading for me for the millionth time) Nancy Drew: The Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene! I love, love, love…I can keep going on…Nancy Drew, and these books are why I love mysteries as much as I do now! I hope my daughter enjoys it as much as I did when I was her age 🙂
Since last week I finished reading:
I enjoyed The Broken Girls by Simone St. James and it was a 4 star read. The first part was better than the second part, in my opinion, but I would recommend it if you like an eerie ghost story slash mystery!
Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl was a 3 Star read…not Dahl’s finest, and I had to question some of the morals of Mr. Fox. I was able to use the story as a teaching moment about not trying to shoot people, act nasty, steal, etc, so I guess that worked out…my daughter and I are taking a Dahl break for now.
Next, I plan on reading:
I love Nesbo’s Harry Hole series, so I’m interested to see his take on my favorite Shakespearean tragedy…if it’s done well, I plan on using it in my British Lit class when we study Macbeth.
Scottoline is one of my favorite authors-I’ve been reading everything she has published, without fail, for almost 25 years and adore her as an author and person…she is just such a sweet person! After Anna is one of my most anticipated reads for spring!
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! 🙂
