WWW Wednesday- 1/2/19

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 currently immersed in one of my Christmas books (and one of my most anticipated releases of 2018): The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton. I’m loving it so far, and can’t wait to see how the story unfolds.

I’ve also just begun another historical fiction novel, A Well-Behaved Woman by Therese Anne Fowler. I’ve seen a bit of buzz about this gilded age account of the life of Alva Vanderbilt on social media lately, and was reminded that I still had an ARC of the novel that I need to read and review.


Recently Finished:

My final read of 2018 was Heartburn by Nora Ephron. I really enjoyed this witty little novel, but couldn’t help but wish there was a bit more depth to it. Have any of you seen the film version? I can imagine that it’s even better on the screen.

I’m still digesting Maggie O’Farrell’s impactful memoir I Am I Am I Am after devouring it in two days. It’s beautiful, harrowing, and utterly unforgettable. Without a doubt one of my favorite reads of this past year.


Reading Next:


There are almost too many books calling my name at the moment, so I’m not sure which one(s) I’ll be picking up next. Before I reach for any more of the books I got for Christmas however, I’d like to (finally) read Transcription by Kate Atkinson. It’s been waiting patiently on my shelf since September after all…

    1. Thank you! I would’ve been very disappointed if I wasn’t enjoying it. I’d highly, highly recommend I Am, I Am, I Am. Maggie O’Farrell is such a brilliant writer and so many of these stories will stay with me for a long time to come.


    1. That’s good to know about the film. It doesn’t seem to get great reviews from what I can tell, so you’re probably not alone! The protagonists “voice” is definitely the highlight of the novel, so that’s a shame it doesn’t carry over to the screen. I don’t think I’ll be in a hurry to watch this one!


  1. Jessie, my last read of 2018 was Theatre Royal by Michael Coren, a brief overview of the history of Stratford East’s Theatre Royal. Now, I am reading Bellewether by Susanna Kearsley, Jane Austen at Home by Lucy Worsley and I am re-read Emma by Jane Austen. Happy reading!

    1. What excellent current reads, Jessica!! I really enjoyed Bellewether and Jane Austen at Home, and hope you do too. And of course Emma is always enjoyable, but especially this time of year I think. Happy reading and happy 2019!
