WWW Wednesday February 24

After a ten-day arctic deep freeze, it has warmed up enough that I’m starting to see grass on the edges of the yard. In Wisconsin, that doesn’t mean winter is over. Of course not! I’m sure we’re in for some more serious weather eventually. It reminds me of one of my favorite books and a quote from it:

“I used to try to decide which was the worst month of the year. In the winter I would choose February. I had it figured out that the reason God made February short a few days was because he knew by the time people came to the end of it they would die if they had to stand one more blasted day. December and January are cold and wet, but somehow, that’s their right. February is just plain malicious. It knows your defenses are down. Christmas is over and spring seems years away. So February sneaks in a couple of beautiful days early on, and when you’re stretching out like a cat waking up, bang! February hits you in the stomach. February is a mean bully.”-Jacob, Have I Loved by Katherine Paterson

I am sooo over February, I’m ready for March and signs of spring, which, for us, doesn’t happen until April or early May. So really, it’s a pipe dream at this point. A girl can dream, can’t she?

It’s also time for WWW Wednesday and I’ve been BUSY! Take a closer look.

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?

She Come By it Natural: Dolly Parton and the Women Who Lived Her Songs by Sarah Smarsh $2.99. I actually started reading this book from the library some months ago but didn’t have time to read the whole thing before it was due. Just a few days ago, the book went on sale on Kindle so I snagged it because who doesn’t love Dolly Parton?

Also, another Kindle deal, The Chalet by Catherine Cooper $.99. I’m only half way through this book, another one bought on sale, but it reminds me so much of The Guest List by Lucy Foley (review below) which I found to be an excellent Who Done It in the vein of an Agatha Christie locked room mystery.

On audiobook, I’m listening to two different books: From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I got the audiobook when it was on sale last week. The book is not normally my sort of book, but I’m trying to expand my reading universe a little this year so I added this YA Fantasy book. At least I think it’s a YA Fantasy; that’s my impression so far as I didn’t read any reviews. The cover and description sold me on this one.

I’m also listening to The Last Correspondent by Soraya M. Lane. I can’t remember if this was an Amazon First Reads book some months ago or if I just happened upon it because it was only $1.99 on Kindle (it still is) and so was the audio book. I’ve a tendency to avoid more WWII historical fiction just because it has been done so much it seems that’s all I see when I’m searching the genre. But it’s about a female journalist during World War II and the old journalist in me wants to read more about a trailblazer in the field, even if it is fictional.

Lastly, I’m making progress with  The Kennedys in the World: How Jack, Bobby, and Ted Remade America’s Empire (Amazon), an ARC I got from NetGalley. I’m about 40% done with it but put it aside when I picked up a ton of books from the library last week. I’m hoping to finish the book and review it by it’s March 1 release date.

What did you recently finish reading?

Books with reviews posted this week:

#ReesesBookClub Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

#TheRoyalNanny by Karen Harper

The Ghost of Grey Fox Inn (Nancy Drew Diaries #13)

#ReesesBookClub #TheGuestList by Lucy Foley

I also finished The Grace Kelly Dress by Brenda Janowitz. Review to come tomorrow, and The Mystery of the Tolling Bell (Nancy Drew Mysteries #23) both the original and revised texts. That review comes Friday.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Same as last week.

I still plan on reading  The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue (Amazon) It seems every other person I know has read this book except me, so I’m curious. I actually had it checked out of the library twice but had so many books I didn’t get a chance to read it. Then I saw the Kindle edition for only $3.80 and figured what the heck and bought it.

I also plan to get to The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman (Amazon) (AbeBooks), hopefully soon, and watch the DVD and compare.

I’ve also got some more ARCs from NetGalley to finish, and a trip to the library is in the works for later this week.
