WWW Wednesday- August 15, 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 working on my Classics Club Spin pick: Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh and I can’t wait to really get immersed in the story,

I’ve also started my re-read of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen in this gorgeous (and heavy) annotated edition. I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to finish it this month, but I’ll certainly give it a try.

The Masterpiece by Fiona Davis is proving to be a fairly entertaining historical fiction  ARC from NetGalley. I don’t think it will end up being anything extraordinary, but it does make for good bedtime reading.

 

Recently Finished:

I really enjoyed Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danier and Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng for very different reasons. I think I’m suffering from a slight book hangover from both as well…

 

Reading Next:

I’m not sure what I’ll pick up next, but Human Croquet by Kate AtkinsonIdaho by Emily Ruskovich, and State of Wonder by Ann Patchett are all possible contenders.

I also really need to pick Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain back up. I’ve shamefully neglected it for the past month and a half; and I’m still hoping to finish it by the end of summer.

  1. I really enjoyed Idaho a lot more than I expected to. It’s not the kind of thing that you can expect definite answers from regarding “what happened and why” but there are strong suggestions. I have a theory and I’d be interested to know what you think when you’ve finished it. The prose is gorgeous too.

  2. Jessie, the only book here I’ve read is Austen’s lovely Mansfield Park, which I am also hoping to re-read soon. This week I am reading time-travelling romance Hannah’s Moon by John A. Heldt; Christian non-fiction But is it Real? by Amy Orr-Ewing and children’s classic The Enchanted Castle by Edith Nesbit. Happy reading! 🙂

  3. It’s Saturday, not Wednesday, but that still ends inday, so it’s close enough. I finished Naomi Alderman’s The Liar’s Gospel last week. If you haven’t read it, do. It’s beautifully written and, for me, a thoroughly satisfying book. It’s a very Jewish telling of the story of Jesus, told from the points of view of people around him. It’s deeply rooted in community and tradition, and he’s both central and off to one side. Among other things, it circles the question of whether all stories aren’t lies. Gorgeous book.

    1. haha- I’m always happy to hear about what you’re reading, regardless of what day of the week it is! The Liar’s Gospel does sound excellent; I’ll definitely have to check it out in the future. Thanks for the rec!
