WWW Wednesday, 2-April-2014

2 Apr

Being a part of MizB’s WWW Wednesday has been such a great experience. Please join in if you haven’t yet! 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: My co-worker lent me Life After Life by Kate Atkinson so I’ve started in on that. I’m about 200 pages in and it’s slowing down a bit, but I’ve heard it will pick back up. On audio book I put Cabin Pressure by Josh Wolk on hold. I will finish it, but I finally got The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith on audiobook! I’ve been waiting since October and it’s finally here! I’ll be powering through because I have another hold coming in soon. On my phone I’m still working through The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson. It’s getting slowly better, but it really is slowly.

Recently finished: After a year, I finally finished Harry Potter y la Orden del Fenix by J.K. Rowling! I’m so excited, it’s a huge accomplishment for me.

Reading Next: I shouldn’t even try to tell you what I’m reading next at this point. I guess I can say for sure that I’ll be reading Before You Know Kindness by Chris Bohjalian for my book club. I’m going to hear him speak at the end of the month so you can look forward to a review and pictures of that as well! Yay!

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.

    Wow to reading Harry Potter in Spanish. I read have read so many books in Spanish but mostly for my degree (ie Don Quijote) Ugg. The only one I read for fun was Como Agua Para Chocolate but it is just too much work and not enough enjoyment to read in Spanish.
    By the way, I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award. http://hotteaandagoodbook.wordpress.com/2014/04/02/liebster-award/

      My Iberian Literature class senior year was great for short stories, but I wanted to challenge myself to a longer piece. I’m slowly working my way through the Potter series and I also have ‘La sombra del viento’ on my bookshelf. I want to read the original!
      Thank you again for the nomination!

      It’s been on mine for ages. It’s very relieving to finally take it off.

    Congrats on finishing the Harry Potter y la Orden del Fenix. That is, indeed, a significant accomplishment! I remember taking a Spanish lit class in college, and I had a devil of time with a much less challenging piece. So my hat is off to you! I do look forward to your Wednesday postings. I always come away with at least one new book recommendation. Can’t wait to read what you have to say about The Cuckoo’s Calling and compare to my thoughts. You always manage to capture something that adds more depth to my understanding of the same book.

      Thank you so much for your comments! I’m really enjoying ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ so far. I’m about half way through the audiobook but it will be at least a week before I’ll be able to write up a review. Things have been wonderfully busy. Take care!
