WWW Wednesday February 3

What sort of week has it been? Crazy busy with writing. I had a bunch of book reviews piling up since the new year so this past weekend, with no football to watch, I cranked out a bunch of reviews that will post throughout the month. It’s a great relief to me, as I like to work ahead but only had one scheduled post until I got to work.

It’s also WWW Wednesday, so let’s get to it:

The Three Ws are:

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

What are you currently reading?

Finally received Anxious People by Fredrick Backman from the library. This was a much talked about book for the end of 2020. “A poignant, charming novel about a crime that never took place, a would-be bank robber who disappears into thin air, and eight extremely anxious strangers who find they have more in common than they ever imagined.”

The House of Kennedy by James Patterson (Amazon). I was a bit dubious about this book because it’s written by a best-selling novelist, not a historian.

“Across decades and generations, the Kennedys have been a family of charismatic adventurers, raised to take risks and excel. Their name is synonymous with American royalty. Their commitment to public service is legendary. But, for all the successes, the family has been blighted by assassinations, fatal accidents, drug and alcohol abuse and sex scandals.

To this day, the Kennedys occupy a unique, contradictory place in the world’s imagination: at once familiar and unknowable; charmed and cursed. The Kennedy Curse is a revealing, fascinating account of America’s most famous family, as told by the world’s most trusted storyteller.”

The Camelot Caper (Vicky Bliss #0.5) (Amazon) I decided that this year I’d go back and listen to all my Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels books (the pseudonyms for Barbara Mertz). This volume isn’t read by the normal narrator, so it’s a little weird listening to it. But it’s just as good as I remember it. Mertz is one of my favorite authors so this is like comfort food for me.

What did you recently finish reading?

Reviews to come in the next few weeks with all these titles.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Borrower of the Night: The First Vicky Bliss Mystery by Elizabeth Peters (Amazon) on auido. I love the Vicky Bliss mysteries, almost as much as Peters’ Amelia Peabody Emerson books, so this should be a nice trip down memory lane. I absolutely adore narrator Barbara Rosenblat and will listen to anything she does. The Clue in the Crumbling Wall (Nancy Drew Mystery Stories #22) both the 1945 novel as well as the 1973 revised edition is also on the docket, with a review coming next Friday.

I’ve also got a slew of library books to pick up, including many winners and runners-up for the best children’s books like the Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King awards. Also, Cecily Tyson’s memoir and a biography of VP Kamala Harris to name a few. We’ll see how many I actually get to in the next three weeks.
