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?
Progress on A Carnival of Snackery has been slow but steady. I’m just over 50 pages in now, having just finished reading the collection of entries from 2004 now. I’m kind of hoping I can finish at least a year each week. That should keep me well on track. Other than that, I haven’t got much more to say about the book right now, other than I continue to enjoy it.
I’ve made a modest amount of progress in Pet Sematary by Stephen King now too. I’m right now sitting at 70 pages in. I was hoping I’d crack 100 pages this week, but work has continued to be rather busy, so I’ll take what I can get in terms of progress. The timing on this book turns out to be a little uncanny, as I’ve had to grieve the passing of a couple of beloved pets the past few months and I have another at the moment who is not doing well. It does not deter me from reading, but it makes the active discussions about death between the characters hit a little closer to home now. My father has often remarked to me that the most impactful thing about this book to him was its exploration of abject grief, so perhaps the impact will only be stronger as I get further.
Nothing this week.
I still intend to read the second volume of Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn et al. soon, it’s just a matter of setting aside the time to read it. I’ve also got a few spooky reads lined up for October. With my current pace, I doubt I will get to all of them, but I nevertheless want to share one of the hopefuls with you here. The King in Yellow by R.W. Chambers is a collection of weird horror stories by an author that actually influenced Lovecraft, so it’s from the 19th century. This book isn’t on any of my lists for this year, but it’s rather short so I’m hoping I can squeeze it in somewhere.
Until next time, thank you for reading! Feel free to share your own post down below.
