19 Mar

I’m having a blast with MizB’s WWW Wednesday meme. If you haven’t yet, considering joining in the fun!

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 keeping the numbers low. Yay for me! I’m determined to make headway on Harry Potter y la Orden del Fenix by J.K. Rowling. I read 50 pages over the weekend and I’ll make my way to the end soon enough. Reading this is much more academic than fun because I have to look words up so often, so I’m not enjoying it as much as I could. My review of this book will be more about what it’s like to read in another language than the book itself. I started a new audiobook last night, Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I was advised that I’ll need to keep a box of tissues with me while I listen to it. The story is about the reasons why a teen girl killed herself. That does seem to be a topic that would beg Kleenex. My ebook of the moment is The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson. I’ll be reading this one for a while and it’s so far, so good.

Recently finished: I finished The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach last night. It was absolutely amazing and had a very fitting ending. I’ll be posting a review soon, hopefully tomorrow! This was for my book club that meets next on 31-March so there will be a follow-up Book Club Reflection to follow.

Reading Next: Since I got another First Reads in the mail last week, I realized how much I need to read The Geography of Memory by Jeanne Murray Walker. It’s been sitting on my shelf for far too long.

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.

    I am looking forward to reading your take on “Thirteen Reasons Why” and “The Orphan Master’s Son”. Both are on my to-read list. I just finished reading “The Port Chicago 50: Disaster, Mutiny, and the Fight for Civil Rights” by Steve Sheinkin, which is about a little known, but incredibly significant event, that happened during WW II. I am currently reading “The Invention of Wings” by Sue Monk Kidd. I am not sure what I will be reading next. Possibly “Loving Frank” by Nancy Horan, since it is my next book club selection, but I think I can sneak in “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell and still have time to read the other book before my book club meeting. Decisions! Decisions!

      I’ve seen a lot of press about ‘The Invention of Wings’ but I hadn’t seen anyone reading it yet. I look forward to your thoughts. Fangirl is a very quick read so if you think you can squeeze it in, I recommend it. Just a warning, I almost threw it across the room at the end but the journey was well worth it!
