26 Feb

I’ve decided to start participating in a weekly post on Wednesdays, WWW Wednesdays hosted by MizB on Should be Reading.

www_wednesdays4The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently reading: I’m a girl who can’t read only one book at a time, so get ready for a list. In print, I have two books, Insurgent by Veronica Roth which I started last night and Harry Potter y la Orden del Fénix by J.K. Rowling which I’ve been working on for over a year. I was a Spanish major in college so I like to practice reading in Spanish when I can. It’s good to read something I’m already familiar with in English so I learn new words. It’s been slow going because I always prioritize other books. On my phone, I’m reading We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver which I’m in love with. His narrator is such a wonderfully developed woman and I adore reading about her. I’m listening to a book on my phone as well, which is The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach. This is for my book club and comes highly recommended by my friend Katherine. Finally, the audiobook in my car is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’m almost done with the behemoth and I’ll be glad when it’s over, but I’m too far in to give up!

Recently finished: Just Kids by Patti Smith. Review will be up tomorrow!

Reading Next: I’ve wanted to read Canada by Richard Ford for a long time now. I finally bought a copy and should have the time to delve into it in the next month or so. I’m excited!

That’s it from me. What are your three Ws? Leave a comment and let me know and also check out the original post on MizB’s blog!

Until next time, write on.

    We seem to have a lot of books in common so I followed. Loved Outlander and of course Harry. If you decide to read the final book in the Divergent series, Allegiant, I’ll be interested in your take on it.

      I will try to read Allegiant as soon as I can get my hands on it! I’m already plotting where to find a copy.

    Interesting choices. I am impressed with your reading the Harry Potter book in Spanish. I recently read The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman. Great book, but it was a very serious read. Moving on to something a bit lighter, I am now reading the nominees for the California Young Reader’s Medal (grades 6-9 category). I am currently reading The Shadow Prince by Jennifer Nielsen (final book in the Ascendance Trilogy). This is a highly entertaining series with a main character and plot that middle school students will most certainly enjoy. Yesterday I finished Bluefish by Pat Schmitz. This is one of those books that I think will appeal across the age groups. Excellent writing, great characters, and an engaging plot. I couldn’t put it down. I read this one in a day. Now that just leaves me Chained by Lynne Kelly to complete the category. That will most likely be my next book. That, of course, is always subject to change!

      I almost feel I have to do more than one at a time so I have a book in some format all the time!
