Each Wednesday at “Taking on a World of Words“, we are asked to answer the 3 Ws about our reading.
Here’s a glimpse of my current reading life, over the past week:
What are you currently reading?
I am continuing my study/read through of a chapter of The Magic Words by Cheryl B. Klein for the FB book study. (we’re on Chapter 5)
I have made some progress with and hope to finish this week
Wish by Barbara O’Connor
Ms.Bixby’s Last Day by John David Anderson
I am still reading: A Thread So Thin by Marie Bostwick
I haven’t read anything from these books although I am still determined to finish them:
Sixty by Ian Brown
GMC (Goal, Motivation and Conflict) by Debra Dixon
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
What have I read this past week?
Wenjack by Joseph Boyden. A small but powerful book. It looks at the death of a young boy who has come to represent the worst of the residential schools.
Heartstone by Elle Katharine White – a most enjoyable fatasy
I also read 2 romances, both of which I enjoyed:
Always Mine by Ruth Cardello
Christmas on my Mind by Janet Dailey
I thoroughly enjoyed a children’s non-fiction picture book:
Finding Winnie by Lindsay Mattick – an exceptionally well written exploration of the true story of the bear that inspired Winnie-the-Pooh, written by the grand-daughter of the man who rescued Winnie.
What do you plan to read next?
The next book will be: The Lost Girl of Astor Street by Stephanie Morrill, as I will be posting a review next week.
I have 2 books from the library based on a retelling of the fairy tale Rapunzel and hope to start on either and eventually do a comparison:
Grounded by Megan Morrison
Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth
I still plan to read:
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
And finish (finally!!) The Hobbit
