WWW Wednesday December 9

It’s Wednesday, so it’s time to take a look at what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I’m planning on reading.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

I have to be honest; this is getting harder and harder to do with my work schedule. More than 40 hours a week (for which I am very grateful for) leaves so little time to read! This past weekend I worked all day Saturday and Sunday took my family to a company-held socially-distanced event. I’m surprised I made any progress at all this week!

What are you currently reading?

I’m still working on Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy (Amazon) (AbeBooks). Instead of reading it I’m listening to it in little bits and pieces.

From the publisher: “The definitive biography of the most dangerous demagogue in American history, based on first-ever review of his personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently unsealed transcripts of his closed-door Congressional hearings.

I’m also reading a book I got for a steal on Kindle a while back: Jo & Laurie (Amazon) (AbeBooks). Wow, do some people have some really strong opinions on this book!

Bestselling authors Margaret Stohl and Melissa de la Cruz bring us a romantic retelling of Little Women starring Jo March and her best friend, the boy next door, Theodore “Laurie” Laurence.

1869, Concord, Massachusetts: After the publication of her first novel, Jo March is shocked to discover her book of scribbles has become a bestseller, and her publisher and fans demand a sequel. While pressured into coming up with a story, she goes to New York with her dear friend Laurie for a week of inspiration—museums, operas, and even a once-in-a-lifetime reading by Charles Dickens himself!

What did you recently finish reading?

I did finish listening to When We Believed in Mermaids, which is a fabulous price on Amazon Kindle or Audiobook right now.

An Amazon Charts, Washington PostWall Street Journal, and USA Today best seller

From the author of The Art of Inheriting Secrets comes an emotional new tale of two sisters, an ocean of lies, and a search for the truth.

Her sister has been dead for 15 years when she sees her on the TV news….

Josie Bianci was killed years ago on a train during a terrorist attack. Gone forever. It’s what her sister, Kit, an ER doctor in Santa Cruz, has always believed. Yet all it takes is a few heart-wrenching seconds to upend Kit’s world. Live coverage of a club fire in Auckland has captured the image of a woman stumbling through the smoke and debris. Her resemblance to Josie is unbelievable. And unmistakable. With it comes a flood of emotions – grief, loss, and anger – that Kit finally has a chance to put to rest: by finding the sister who’s been living a lie.

I also finished Can’t Slow Down: How 1984 Became Pop’s Blockbuster Year by Michaelangelo Matos (See my review here) which was a wonderful trip down memory lane. I also finished and reviewed Before the Crown: a Novel of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip by Flora Harding (Read my review here) Both books were very good.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I wanted to read some Christmas-themed books for the blog, but with so many work hours, and most decidedly not in a reading mood when I get done with work, I’m not sure I’ll get to anything else. High on my TBR is A Nancy Drew Christmas (Amazon) (AbeBooks), so that’s probably what I will shoot for.

I’ve also still have three ARCs from NetGalley and 2 Goodreads Giveaway winning Kindle Books to get to. Who knows when I’ll have time to actually read them, though! We all know that as the holidays approach, there’s generally less time to read, not more.
