WWW Wednesday – 29th March

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words and it’s my weekly reminder to blog! No actually it’s a fun way to share my reading habits and a simple way (especially with hubby at footy training) to get something written. Anyone can participate. All you’ve got to do is answer the three Ws . Go check out other blogger’s contributions too, it’s a great way to connect.

What are you currently reading:

Making actual progress on Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert, finished a chapter on the history of marriage which has given me food for thought and inspiration for a future blog post on civil unions

Finding Fraser by K.C Dyer is officially deleted but I did start a new audio book I picked up from the library – The Luminaries by Elanor Catton. I’m not 100% taken by the writing style but the mystery and secrets will keep me listening.

What did you recently finish reading:

Snow and Shadow by Dorothy Tse – a strange book of short stories best explained by this wonderful review. My favourite story was The Love Between Leaf and Knife which I found very relatable despite the bizarre characters and actions.

What do you think you’ll read next:

I downloaded Left Neglected by Lisa Genova, same author as Still Alice but it will go back on my TBR pile I think along with A Year of Wonders from the library. I’m after a light easy read next which I think will be Coming Home by Stacy Hawkins Adams, it’s book one in a series which I already read and purchased part 2 of, a christian novel.

I’d like to add this week…

Which children’s book I’d recommend:

The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark by Ken Geist and illustrated by Julia Gorton. A modern take on The Three Little Pigs with Jim, Tim, Kim  and their finny fin fins. I love the font and layout of the words, they make it so easy to do voices. Plus it has the feminist touch of Kim choosing the safest housing option.

Which tv series am I binge watching now:

I was desperately need in something worthwhile to watch on tv and am loving my introduction to Season One of A Place to Call Home. Strong characters and I just love the 1950’s time period in Australia. Also giving me food for thought in relation to marriage.

 

What’s keeping you sane this week? Feel free to add your own W questions 🙂

    1. Thank you Lori. I have been enjoying your posts for awhile now and the blessings keep flowing – I’m getting better at some of the simple housework gifts, next step is food preparation. Looking forward to hearing your Mum has safely moved to your neck of the woods. Thank you for reading and commenting. (I only have 2 episodes left in season 1, not ready for a break while I find season 2!)
