WWW Wednesday (June 26)

WWW Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading. To participate, answer the following three questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading:
1I received an ARC of Mrs. Poe from a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. It’s really interesting so far – aside from knowing that he married his cousin, I knew next to nothing about Poe’s married life.

 

 

 

 
Recent Reads:

2This book was strange but good. The biology major part of me was intrigued by the idea that there could be a biological explanation for vampirism and was fascinated by all of the detailed descriptions of parasites (many of which I learned about in zoology class).

 

 

 

To Read:
5 6I was finally able to pick these up from the library, and I can’t wait to start them. The Shadow of the Wind was one of the best books that I’ve read, so I can’t wait to see what further adventures take place at the Cemetery of Forgotten Books.

 

What books are you planning to read this week?

    • It isn’t quite what I expected, given that the narrator is Frances Osgood, a fellow poet who was also rumored to be Poe’s lover, and not Poe’s wife, as the title would suggest. Despite that, I’m really enjoying it so far. It’s a beautiful mix of poetic prose, mystery, romance, intrigue, and historical documentation – all of which make for a rather compelling and informative read.
