#WWWWednesday – 2 Nov 2022

It’s WWW-Wednesday!

WWWWednesdays meme, formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm, has been revived and is now hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

What are you currently reading?

Well #NovNov has just begun I posted my hoped for reads yesterday. It begins with short classics and I listed four books: The Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys, The Lonely Londoners by Sam Selvon, Animal Farm by George Orwell and The Time Machine by H G Wells to choose from or if I manage more than one book.

Are you interested in joining #NovNov22? Rebecca of Bookish Beck and Cathy at 746Books are co-hosting Novellas in November as a month-long challenge with four weekly prompts. There is a ‘buddy read’ feature this year for which Foster by Claire Keegan has been chosen. You can pop to their blog using the links above or check it out on my blog.

What did you recently finish reading?

I’ve just finished reading Havana Fever by Leonardo Padura for the Random Things Tour in November. You’ll find my post on 10 November.

What do you think you’ll read next?

So I may end up reading more than one short classic so that will come from the list above. If I don’t manage more than one I’ll be straight to week two Novella’s in Translation with Under the Snow by Kirstin Ekman (Trans. Joan Tate). This is my only nominated book for week 2.

After that comes Short nonfiction week again just one book for this week, God and Caesar by Shirley Williams.

Then week 4 is contemporary novellas I’ve listed four titles, Foster by Claire Keegan, The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett, Every Trick in the Book by Iain Hood and The Hermit by Louise Walters. I really am hoping to manage all four titles.

I have a lot of shorts on my shelves so I’ll be reading more of them in the coming months.

Well that’s another Wednesday that’s two I’ve actually managed to post in a row for WWW-Wednesday. If you’ve any thoughts or have read any of these maybe leave a comment below and let me know what you think.

  1. A lot of favourites in there – or at least books I mean to read. I found The Uncommon Reader very funny, and I still think about a wonderful immersive event I attended at The London Library based on The Time Machine by HG Wells, just before we went into the first lockdown, which kind of felt… apposite or prescient or something.

    • So glad you have enjoyed some of these – it’s good to know. The London Library event sounds fascinating and, yes, A Time Machine in the first lockdown might have given some freedom, maybe prevented it or, possibly, what havoc could have been wreaked!



Looking for thoughtful discussions about books and beverages? Well, you've come to the right place.
