WWW Wednesday- November 15, 2017

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

The three W’s are:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

 

Currently Reading:

I didn’t get much reading done last week, so I’m hoping I’ll make up for it a bit this week. I have about 120 pages left in We Were Villains by M. L. Rio, and I have a feeling that they’re going to fly by as I approach the dramatic climax. I’ve heard that the ending is pretty shocking and I cannot wait. I finally started Murder on the Orient Express last night, and am already loving it.

 

Recently Finished:

31409135

This was one of the best nonfiction books I’ve ever read. The Radium Girls was inspirational and utterly heartbreaking, and I have no doubt that it will stay with me for years to come.

 

Reading Next:

 

I’m planning on continuing with my #NonfictionNovember TBR list, so will most likely start Quiet and A Secret Sisterhood soon. I’m also anxiously awaiting the Classic’s Club Spin #16 on Friday, and may pick up my chosen book over the weekend.

 

What have you been reading lately?

  1. Currently Reading The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor. I only have about 30 pages left. Barring the author completely ruining it in the last chapter, I’d definitely recommend it if you’re interested in the Cottingley Fairies and that whole story. http://amzn.to/2zI4tRo
    Also dipping into and out of The Genius of Jane Austen by Paula Byrne. It’s slower going but it’s an interesting analysis of the role that theatre plays in Austen’s novels, as well as what is inherently “theatrical” about them: http://amzn.to/2zIWVOh

    Recently read The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda http://amzn.to/2APW78z which was just kind of “meh”. I also read Autumn by Ali Smith. It you’re in the mood for something contemplative, I found it lovely. http://amzn.to/2zIXVlN

    Next on my list is likely The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis, if only because it’s due back to the library next weekend. http://amzn.to/2zJnqDt

    1. That’s good to hear about The Cottingley Secret-it’s a super fascinating story, so glad the book does it justice. I loved Byrne’s The Real Jane Austen, so I’ll have to check out The Genius of JA too. I’ve also been wanting to read Autumn, or any Ali Smith for that matter. And this summer I read Fiona Davis’ latest (The Address) and thought it was an entertaining enough historical fiction novel, although nothing special. The Barbizon Hotel is really interesting though, so hopefully The Dollhouse will be a fun read. Happy reading Fran!

      1. I finished the Cottingly Secret last night. There were no major surprises, so it was definitely worth a read. Don’t expect brilliance, but it’s an interesting take on the story. I also started The Dollhouse. So far it seems like what you said of the Address is also true of this. Entertaining but nothing special. But I’ve only read the first chapter so that might change.
