RAINY DAY READING: WWW WEDNESDAYS

Today I’m participating in WWW Wednesdays, at Taking on a World of Words Here’s how it works:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?

 

***

Currently Reading:  I am enjoying an e-ARC from NetGalley, to be released on 2-5-19:  The Winter Sister, by Megan Collins:   a young woman haunted by the past returns home to care for her ailing mother and begins to dig deeper into her sister’s unsolved murder.

 

Last week, I was reading Sadie, by Courtney Summers, but I had to DNF it at 117 pages.  I tried, but it wasn’t working for me.

BOOKS FINISHED SINCE LAST WEEK-(Titles/Covers Linked to My Reviews):

I only finished one book.  Forget You Know Me (e-book), by Jessica Strawser, will be released from NetGalley on 2/5/19.

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

I have put a library hold on From the Corner of the Oval, by Beck Dorey-Stein.  I should have it in 12 weeks.  Or maybe I will grow impatient and buy it.  No, I’m going to try to wait.

Synopsis:  In 2012, Beck Dorey-Stein is working five part-time jobs and just scraping by when a posting on Craigslist lands her, improbably, in the Oval Office as one of Barack Obama’s stenographers. The ultimate D.C. outsider, she joins the elite team who accompany the president wherever he goes, recorder and mic in hand. On whirlwind trips across time zones, Beck forges friendships with a dynamic group of fellow travelers—young men and women who, like her, leave their real lives behind to hop aboard Air Force One in service of the president.

As she learns to navigate White House protocols and more than once runs afoul of the hierarchy, Beck becomes romantically entangled with a consummate D.C. insider, and suddenly the political becomes all too personal.

Against the backdrop of glamour, drama, and intrigue, this is the story of a young woman making unlikely friendships, getting her heart broken, learning what truly matters, and, in the process, discovering her voice.

That was my less than stellar week.  What did yours look like?

  2. The Winter Sister definitely sounds interesting! Shame Sadie did not work for you. It’s not one I am that interested in, but I know a lot of people seem to love it.

    Hope your next reads will hit the right spot 🙂
