WWW Wednesday -September 5, 2018

img_1384-0Hello everyone! It’s time once again for WWW Wednesday ! Even more exciting… it’s the First WWW Wednesday for September!!
Since so much sickness hit my home (and me in particular) over the last couple of months, I’m really looking forward to a healthy September!!!  I could totally complain for a whole post, but let’s not get distracted…
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.
Don’t know what WWW Wendesday is or how to participate??? All you need to do is answer the following three questions and link back to Taking on a World of Words, or you can put your answers in the comments on her blog! (You can also leave your link in my comments to be sure I don’t miss your post!)

The three WWW questions are:

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

Here’s what I’m currently reading:

the_sun_king_by_allison_lee_palmer_200

I just started reading The Sun King by Allison Lee Palmer last night so I don’t have much to say about it yet… Don’t worry, we all know that won’t last long!
 
 
 
 

I recently finished:

Unfortunately, being sick the last couple of weeks didn’t mean I got to lay around and read. Instead, I laid in my bed surrounded by books I couldn’t read. It really sucked! I did manage to finish up a couple of books though…
38336382
The Swan Keeper by Milana Marsenich started out kinda slow for me. Once I was past about the first chapter though, I had a hard time putting it down! My review will up soon!
 
 
 
 
 
 
38141069
 
This may be one of favorite Christian reads of 2018 so far! I love the way it explores the difference in going through life as a pilgrim instead of as an exile. Review should be up next week!
 
 
 
 

What I’ll be reading next:


 
What’s your WWW? Any thoughts on the books above?  Leave a comment or send me a message through the Contact Me page.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy The Swan Keeper by Milana Marsenich at first, but by the end of the first chapter, I was hooked!
 
 
 
 
 
 
38141069
 
I’ve been reading Born to Wander by Michelle Van Loon with my husband. It’s really interesting and has led to some great discussions!
 
 
 
 
 

I recently finished:

I may have missed the last couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t carve out some reading time…
38769727
 
I absolutely loved Mammoth by Jill Baguchinsky and I’ll be sharing my review soon!
 
 
 
 
 
40081069
Edge of the Known Bus Line by James R. Gapinski was a super quick read that gave me chills!
 
 
 
 
 
80176
For some crazy reason, I decided to start reading classics that I either never got around to or just discovered…Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson was not a good one to start with! I was pretty disappointed and upset that it was recommended to me.

Their Houses by Meredith Sue Willis is another book I recently finished that I fell in love with. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since I got to the end and can’t wait to share the review with you all!

WWW Wednesday -August 1, 2018

img_1384-0Welcome to August 2018 everyone!!!
I was going to add a list of my current reads to my July Wrap-Up yesterday, but since today (then tomorrow) is Wednesday, I skipped it.
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.  I’ve been doing it for a couple of months now (I think) and it’s a lot of fun sharing what I’m currently reading, but I’m also really enjoying visiting the other participant blogs to find more great books to add to my TBR pile!!! (Which is probably not a great thing…my TBR could kill if it fell on someone.)

Here’s what I’m currently reading:

38769727
I’ll be finishing this book today and I cannot wait to write the review and share how awesome Mammoth by Jill Baguchinsky is!!! The main character is smart, cute, a fellow blogger, and she’s into paleontology… how could it not be great, right???
 
the_irrationalist_cover
I just started Andrew Pessin’s The Irrationalist. The summary of this book hooked me before I even started reading, so I’m reserving any real judgment until I’m farther in. So far though… I’m enjoying it!!
 

I recently finished:

Yeah, so this is awkward…

Nothing!!!

A book blogger who’s not reading enough to finish ONE. SINGLE. BOOK. this past week???
Yeah, that totally happened. Moving on…
 

What I’ll be reading next:

the_sun_king_by_allison_lee_palmer_200

Today’s WWW Wednesday is going to be much shorter than usual (I skipped my normal little comments). We’ve got a stomach bug wreaking havoc in our home and well, I love WWW Wednesday but I’ve got 2 dogs, 5 kids and a husband… and I’m still semi-standing. Basically…

(Hehehe… I’ll be honest… I probably could’ve added in a few sentences, but I’ve been dying to use that meme!)
So here’s my shortened WWW Wednesday

Here’s what I’m currently reading:

I recently finished:

37795839-_sy180_Beneath the Same Heaven, by Anne Marie Ruff

So… I became so attached and involved with the characters in this book that when their world fell apart, I actually had to take a break for a while and come back to it when I could handle it.  I’m not sure what that says about my emotional stability, but I do know it says great things about Anne Marie Ruff’s ability to connect her readers with her characters!

Priceless, by Jen Barrick
My daughter and I were going through Priceless together. She’s been gone most of the summer and so it was pretty slow going, and I ended up finishing the remainder without her, although we’ll still be finishing it up when she gets back from the beach! I’ll have my review up soon!

Mystic Dragon, by Jason Denzel
I really loved reading this! I didn’t know it was the second in the series until I visited the Goodreads page, so that was a bit of a bummer… I can’t believe I missed out on the first one! (Don’t worry, it’s been added to my TBR). I’ll be posting a review soon!

Here’s what I’m currently reading:

38749523
Priceless, by Jen Barrick
I’ve been going through Priceless: Who I am When I feel… with my daughter and I’m still not quite sure how I feel about it. She is currently at her father’s house and was in Europe hopping about for a couple weeks before that so I’m reserving further opinion until I’ve been able to read more into it with her. As I’ve said in previous weeks, I love the idea behind this devotional and my daughter seems to be enjoying it. The problem may just be that it’s geared toward her age and understanding/dealing with the MANY emotions that come with being a teenage girl and holding those emotions and feelings up to God’s truths.  Maybe I just need to tap back into those emotions in order to get more out of it?
 
37795839-_sy180_Beneath the Same Heaven, by Anne Marie Ruff
I wasn’t able to get much reading done on this one lately, I’m sorry to say.  I am definitely still enjoying Beneath the Same Heaven, it just didn’t make the top of the list this week as I tried to play catch up from last week’s sick household shutdown. I’ll have more to say about it next week, I’m sure!
 

I recently finished:

small Truth Seer coverTruth Seer, by Kay L. Moody
I am really enjoying Truth Seer!  I flew through the first 100 pages…no small feat when you’re caring for 6 month old twins, a two-year old, and a recent high school graduate, all while worrying about your 13 year old daughter that’s currently hopping about Europe! I can already tell I’ll be reading the entire series! You can read my review of Truth Seer here.
 
 
22914448-_sx120_The Dead Key, by D.M. Pulley
I picked up The Dead Key at the West Virginia Writer’s Conference earlier this month.  It’s a fast paced mystery novel that I really had a hard time putting down at night! For me, mysteries/suspense stories are either love it or hate it, with no in between, and this one is firmly in the love it category! I’ll have a review up for it soon!
 
 

What I’ll be reading next:

the_irrationalist_cover the_sun_king_by_allison_lee_palmer_200 cover132474-medium
As you can tell, it’s been a crazy slow couple of reading weeks for me! It feels a little strange, but I guess you’ll have that.
