WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme run by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Check out her post and others over on her blog!
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Unfortunately, I’ve not made any progress in A Carnival of Snackery by David Sedaris. I’ve been emotionally compromised due to the loss of a pet so I just didn’t make time for it.
I have however managed to read more of Pet Sematary by Stephen King, though only about 50 pages or so. Things have finally taken a spookier turn in the story, as Church the family cat has met his untimely end and Louis and Jud are currently taking his body to the real cemetery where what you bury doesn’t stay buried. I’ve not finished reading this chapter yet, but I really like how hauntingly King describes the landscape on the way to the burial ground, especially with whatever massive creature passes nearby them on their way there. I’m almost positive that will not be revisited in the story, but I just love it as a little detail, that there’s a lot paranormal or unnatural going on at that location.
Nothing once again.
I figured I would supply you once again with a Halloween hopeful for the month. Again, with my pace, I probably won’t get to all that I’ve been sharing here, but I want to make the attempt anyway. The book is Tracking the Chupacabra by Benjamin Radford, which is also on my yearly to-read list. This is spookiness from a nonfiction angle, investigating the history of the cryptid known as the Chupacabra, alleged sightings with which actually only date back to the 1990s. I know the gist of some things this book explores, but I’m looking forward to a proper deep dive. I’ve been wanting to read this since I first heard about it on The ParaPod many years ago, so I’m really hoping I’ll be able to get to it this month.
Until next time, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.
