WWW Wednesday- January 3, 2018

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’m about 80 pages into Autumn by Ali Smith and I am loving every word. I’m in awe of her prose and her play on words; there are so many sentences I want to highlight and reread over and over.

I’m also enjoying another Furrowed Middlebrow novel, A Winter Away by Elizabeth Fair. It’s a charming and comedic story of life in an English village, complete with a delightful cast of characters. This is my second Elizabeth Fair novel, and I can’t help but wish she was more widely read. Fair is like a kinder, more gentle Angela Thirkell, and is full of the best observations of human nature. I highly recommend her books if you’re looking for a lovely light read!

Recently Finished:

In the final days of 2017, I read my Classics Club Spin pick 1984 by George Orwell. I hadn’t really been looking forward to this dystopian classic, but I ended up loving it. It was the perfect book to close out the insane year. I can only hope that it will feel a lot less relevant in 2018…

Reading Next: 

I’m not sure what I want to pick up next, but I need to sort out my TBR for next week’s Bout of Books readathon. My goal is to finish 3 books, so I need to choose wisely!

  1. Another blogger mentioned Elizabeth Fair a couple months back and I’ve got her on my TBR – looks right up my alley. So many have praised Autumn and now Winter that I really do need to read Smith. 1984 is another one I’ve never read – I intend to! 🙂
