WWW Wednesday: March 6, 2019

I am joining all my fellow readers and Sam for WWW! My original plan from January was to read some classics…yeah, that went swell. “I’ve been missing my classics…so my plan is to read a couple off that list. To get me through the rest of winter I’m thinking 20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Diary of Anne Frank, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.” So I didn’t do that…at all. After I finished The Screwtape Letters, one of these books was my intent, but I realized I wasn’t reading as much as I had been and I didn’t want to get out a library book, just to renew it twelve times to finish it. (okay, fine…that’s a slight exaggeration. So I started another book that I had at home, canceled 20 Thousand for now cause I had a ‘V’ author, pushed off Anne Frank until summer and Ivan Denisovich until fall. Ah well, plans always change. Have to be fluid!

Recently Finished!

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis – I thought it was good to see temptations and sin from hell’s perspective, if you will. It really convicted me as to my behaviors and attitudes.

Currently Reading!

 Still Alice by Lisa Genova – I have wanted to read this book for a while, but never got around to it. I decided to finally just do it!! It’s not hard to read and understand, but it’s hard to read because of the topic. I find myself feeling fuzzied and empathizing with her memory troubles. I’m 34% with it right now!

Coming Up!

I think I’ll read Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote as it’s a short read and I haven’t been reading much lately, so I assume the trend will continue!

What’s your WWW this March?

WWW Wednesday: January 9, 2019

Fall was a slow season for reading as I was doing so much other stuff and I didn’t have a a vacation to laze around and read. Winter wasn’t super fab either. But honestly….I’m proud of what I did read and was able to check off my list! I am joining Sam for WWW.

These books were all on my 2018 Fall TBR. I read two of them in the fall and one of them in the winter.

Recently Finished!

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane – I read the book and then watched the movie about a month later. I think it might’ve been the first movie that was extremely similar to the book and didn’t disappoint! I really enjoyed this book as I love prison stories and stories about the brain and how it does the crazy things that it can.

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson – This book kept me questioning what actually happened originally. Excellently written and I didn’t see it ending the way it did!

All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda – She wrote this book from ending to beginning and I have never read a book like that before. It was unique and took me a little bit to get used to it, but I really enjoyed it! I loved the way the book ended. It made me so very happy.

Currently Reading!

I was given a copy of C.S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters for Christmas and so I am reading that right now!

Coming Up!

I’ve been missing my classics…so my plan is to read a couple off that list. To get me through the rest of winter I’m thinking 20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Diary of Anne Frank, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.
