WWW Wednesday! March 13, 2019



Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I missed WWW Wednesday last week because I was in Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA so my recently finished books will cover everything I’ve finished since February 28th through March 12th! Thankfully, I was able to read quite a bit the past 2 weeks but would have loved to read more–but wouldn’t we all?

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:

 Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer

Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder (with my daughter)

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang *

*Popsugar 2019 Challenge Prompt: an “own voices” book

I’d love to hear what you’re reading so I can have more ideas for my ever-growing TBR pile! 🙂 Have a great week!!

    1. Saving Meghan is fascinating since it deals with Munchausen syndrome by proxy. I loved The Southern Side of Paradise. I think you’d enjoy The Editor since the editor is Jackie Kennedy, and I just loved every minute she was in the book…it was just wonderful. Thanks for sharing your WWW post!


  1. Stephanie, you’re a reading machine! I’m amazed at all the books you’re reading. Jealous! 😉 I did start The Silent Patient, but need to finish it. Have an awesome week.


    1. Haha, Jenn! I would not have been able to read all those if I hadn’t been on vacation with no teaching to do. Or had the flu, lol. But thanks! It was nice to read all of them. I hope you enjoy The Silent Patient! It shocked me at the end. You too! 😊😍

    1. They were such fun,fast reads! I’d love to see them made into movies. It’s good. I’m listening to the audiobook, so it’s going a little slower than I’d like just because I don’t listen as often, but the story is very well written. I think you’ll enjoy it.

  2. Once again we have so many overlapping books! You had a wonderful two weeks of reading, Steph! Happy you had a nice vacation and are feeling better. What did you find out about your tooth yesterday? Thinking of you! ♥️ xoxo

    1. We usually do! I thought we might and I’m sure we do the rest of spring and summer! I did have a nice vacation…it’s always nice to get away. I’m better with just a slight lingering cough and hope you are too. He thinks it’s my TMJ flaring up again and not the tooth. I have a history of severe TMJ and about 6 years ago did 6 months physical therapy for it because I couldn’t open my mouth wider than 1 finger width, it was causing severe headaches, and causing tooth and jaw pain. I was also getting steroid injections into my TMJ joint for pain…fun stuff right there! Anyway, it calmed down after all the treatment and with a special night guard prescribed by my neurologist especially to treat migraines, but I bit through my 2nd one (or clenched, idk) a few months ago and just stopped wearing it…apparently I should not have been able to bite through layers of acrylic but I did! So I was fitted for a new night guard yesterday, and I’m supposed to wear it for a couple of weeks whenever it comes in and see if that does the trick, as well as start my physical therapy exercises again. If this doesn’t work, then we’ll see if I need a root canal, but the problem is it feels like several teeth hurt and none reacted to the tapping, air, etc. Ugh!! And I’m still in severe pain. Sorry for the book, Haha! Thanks for thinking of me! ❤

      1. Aw, another thing we have in common! I’m a clencher! But I only have flare-ups at really, really stressful times, so my dentist doesn’t treat it. I actually got my bite all out of alignment recently and had discomfort from that – all my teeth were hitting each other wrong, and he witnessed that at my last appointment, but sure enough, a week or so later, I was back to normal. He said it was a pretty bad “stress bite.” Years ago when I was finishing up grad school and working full time, my jaw was so clenched, I could hardly talk and I went to work that way. 😂 I still laugh when I think about trying to cover up the fact that my mouth didn’t open! (And I was scared because it was the first time it had happened!). So all that to say, I am so sorry about that, but I completely understand because I also went in for ONE tooth hurting, and he found the exact same thing with me…But I do not have the serious history and all the PT, etc. you have had, and he doesn’t want to go more invasive unless I need it. I actually appreciate that right now because one more thing would probably stress me out more. I hope your tooth is feeling much better soon. Thinking of you still! ♥️

      2. Ha! I bet we could come up with a big list of things we have in common! ♥ I hate that this is one of them. I was a bad grinder when I was a kid because of my severe anxiety, and I remember my dad waking me up when I was 4 and 5 telling me I was grinding my teeth!! That messed up my bite badly, so I was in braces for 5 years but now my bite is just way off again and I wonder if that’s not playing a big role in this. My dentist is great, but he’s not an expert on TMJ, but I feel like I’ve seen everyone in the Raleigh area, lol! I’ve been treated by my neurologist, my ENT, a TMJ specialist here in Raleigh (who I may go back to if I get desperate even though he takes no insurance, ugh), my oral surgeon, a pain specialist at Rex hospital, a chiropractor, and the physical therapist since moving to the area for my TMD (I say TMJ since it’s more commonly used and a lot of people aren’t sure about TMD, but I bet you’ve heard of it). I totally understand you not being able to open your mouth, and how awful that was for you! That’s about where I am right now with the pain although mine is radiating up into my jaw and ear, and I’ve had a migraine since this started, which I thought was a headache from the flu, but it’s just not gone away. They told me when I was doing physical therapy to never open my mouth more than two fingers width apart, and I have to wonder if having 3 dental visits the end of Jan into Feb for a cleaning and then 2 more visits 4 days apart to have 3 cavities filled that kept my mouth open very wide because they were molars triggered all of this because I was sore after the first cavity was filled for about 2 days then fine but after the 2nd visit, once the Novocaine wore off, I have been in severe pain ever since! And he even took one of the fillings out a week later when I called still in pain and replaced it in case it hadn’t cured properly and that was the problem…no luck! Since it’s been hurting after that cavity was filled, that’s why I was almost certain I’d need a root canal. I think I would have almost rather have need the root canal, lol. Then at least it wouldn’t still be hurting. Who knows how long it will take for this to resolve. I’m glad your TMJ hasn’t caused you severe issues because it is a pain and probably would stress you out a whole lot. I hope it never causes you any more problems! Thanks for thinking of me, and I hope so too (I’d love to sleep)! ♥

    1. Thanks! I had the flu and was on vacation last week or I’d never been able to read that many. I’ve been reading the same book since Sunday, which is depressing after last week, lol. Thanks for sharing your WWW post! 😊

  3. Such great books, Stephanie. I have just finished Saving Meghan btw. I have The Editor coming up eventually. I really liked The Silent Patient and the Christina Lauren books are such fun. I have The Stranger Diaries on hold at the library. Right now, Jan and I are reading Daisy Jones and the Six. I am reading After the Green Withers. Coming up is The Last Year of the War and Henry Himself and The Age of Light. We are all reading machines! 🙂


    1. Thanks, Marialyce, I’ve really enjoyed the ones that I’ve finished the past two weeks and hope to enjoy the ones I’ll be reading soon. I just finished Saving Meghan about 10 minutes ago and am pondering it; I enjoyed it but am thinking my rating through for a bit before I weigh in. I believe you will really enjoy The Stranger Diaries, and I hope Jan and you love Daisy Jones and the Six as much as I did-I know it’s going to be on my favorite book list this year. U ended up putting The Last Year of the War aside for now after trying to read it for about 5 weeks and not progressing past the 10% point. I don’t believe that it’s a bad book at all, but I couldn’t connect with it right now and do plan on trying it at a later time. I typically don’t have that issue, so I think it’s more of a mood reading thing. have The Age of Light to read when I get a chance and look forward to that one. Enjoy all your books! We definitely are reading machines! 🙂

      1. I thought it was a quick, enjoyable read, but I had much of it figured out and thought a lot of it was given away too early, so that’s my biggest issues. I’m so slow when writing my reviews that I’ve got about 10 ARCS read, including this one, and no reviews written with publication dates looming for four of them in the next couple of weeks. I love the reading more than the reviewing, but I hope to get this one written and reviewed next week (that’s the plan!). I look forward to reading your review!
