WWW Wednesdays March 1, 2017


It's time for the weekly meme, WWW Wednesday hosted by Sam
@Taking on a World of Words.

All you need to do is answer the following questions:
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?
So let's get onto it!

What are you currently reading?  I am currently reading an ARC of The Polygamist's Daughter by Anna LeBaron.  I'm a little over half done.  It's a true story about one of the fundamental Mormon cults, not the one with Warren Jeffs as prophet.  I ended up not finishing the ARC that I started later last week, When You Never Said Goodbye: An Adoptee's Search for Her Birth Mother: A Novel in Poems and Journal Entries by Meg Kearney. I had trouble getting into the story and one, I had thought it was a memoir, but was a fictionalized account of some things that happened and also because it was an ARC, which is in an uncorrected format, any poems were just regular sentences and not formatted as a poems usually would be.  And therefore, it was difficult to determine what was meant to be poetry.

What did you recently finish reading?  I just finished this afternoon listening to the audiobook, The Reluctant Midwife by Patricia Harman.  I really enjoyed The Midwife of Hope River, the first in the Hope River series, but I'm still trying to determine my exact thoughts on this latest addition to this series.  Last week, Thursday,

What do you think you’ll read next? Tomorrow, I'll start the audiobook, Pachinko by Min Jin Lee, which I also have as an ARC from NetGalley.  and is shown to be over 700 pages, which I had not realized when I requested it from NetGalley, so I figured listening to it would work out well, even though it is about 18 hours of listening time. 

I also picked up a couple books at the library also that I need to get to one, I was hoping to read in February in honor of Black History Month, Black Stars of the Civil Rights Movement.  We all know who Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. are, but although I know the names of Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. DuBois. Marcus, Garvey, among others, I can't really say exactly what they are known for and there were several people included in the book that I never heard of.  Being the mother of an African American son, I want to know who all of these individuals are and what their importance in history was and I want to know about them before my son mentions or asks about them.  I also picked up my second graphic novel, Aya by Marguerite Abouet & Clement Oubrerie, which takes place in 1978 in Ivory Coast.

What about you?  Have you read any of these or do you plan to? What are you reading?

  2. Audible is fabulous. I always have one audiobook and one print book going on at the same time. I have a 40 minutes commute to and from work each day so I listen to a lot of books. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your week
