Happy Thanksgiving!

 My reading has slowed down somewhat, but that’s okay, it usually does this time of the year. I can’t believe Thanksgiving is already here, but here we are, and I am very thankful that I will be spending time with my family  today. With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, and sometimes life in general, it’s nice to just enjoy spending time with family and friends. I hope wherever you are today that you are able to spend some time with the people who matter most to you.

I wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Autumn, Everyone! I hope your enjoying all that this wonderful season has to offer: cooler temperatures, fall colors, butternut squash soup and pumpkin…everything! 🙂 And, I hope your reading some good books too! Its been a while since I posted a weekly book meme. I should try to participate in more of these because they are so much fun and there are quite a few out there to participate in. Here is a fun one hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Books. She is also participating in NaNoWriMo, so check out her blog to read more from her:)

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived here on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses. Please, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. 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?


A coworker recommended this book to me and then lent me her copy. I have had it for a while now, but I have only recently started reading it. So far, I find it incredibly well written and engaging. I think I am going to enjoy this book. It’s also happens to be my favorite genre: historical fiction!

It’s about Mary Todd Lincoln. It starts off with Mary in an insane asylum and when her son doesn’t support and defend her the way she expected, she starts to write about her life. She does this partly to combat the lies she reads about herself in the newspaper and partly to keep her sanity. I’m not very far into this book yet, but the writing is great and I find that I really want to know more about Mary.

I finished this book recently and I thought that it was a great! It’s was so informative and interesting; it was fascinating to learn more about our Solar System, and the science behind it all sheds some light on our origins. You can read my review of this book here if your interested. 🙂

Finally, I am eagerly looking forward to reading this novel for the Women’s Classic Literature Event. Once I finish my current book, I will be moving on to this one!
