WWW Wednesday, November 16

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!

  1. It actually written in the first person POV. I think it works well to move the story along, plus the writing is really good! This was a fun book meme, I’m glad you started it. 🙂 Have fun with NaNoWriMo! Maybe one day I’ll participate. 🙂

  2. I have to give the credit to another blogger who ended up dropping the meme, I picked it up from her. NaNo is fun even if you don’t win! I’m a rebel myself but I still love all the hype. Happy reading!

  3. Hi, BJ!

    The Mary Todd Lincoln book sounds fascinating. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on Rebecca.

    I’m reading The Rover, Part 2 by Aphra Behn.

    I just finished reading Lady Cop Makes Trouble by Amy Stewart. It’s the second novel in the Kopp Sisters series. BJ, you might like this series. It’s based on the real-life story of the first woman deputy sheriff in the U.S. who was hired in 1915. Her story begins in Girl Waits with Gun.

    Next I’ll be reading selected poetry by Aphra Behn.

  4. Hi, Ms. Arachne! I must admit that I haven’t gotten very far into the Mary Todd Lincoln book yet, but I think that it will be interesting, although, incredibly sad. I’m afraid my reading has slowed down considerably. I’m hoping to get back into my regular routine now that the holidays are over.
    I haven’t heard of the Kopp Sisters series, but I’ll bet it is very interesting. Then again, how could a story like that not be interesting??! 🙂
    Happy reading and Happy new Year!

  5. Happy New Year and happy reading to you, too!

    I’ve had the same problem throughout the autumn. I finally have time for reading and writing again now that the new year is here.
