WWW Wednesday, 9-April-2014

9 Apr

Being a part of MizB’s WWW Wednesday has really encouraged me to keep reading at a break-neck speed!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: Last night I was finally able to pick up Before You Know Kindness by Chris Bohjalian. This is the next book for my book club and I wanted to pick it up right away, but had another book to finish first. I’m only 12 pages in, so no assessment yet. On audio book I put Cabin Pressure by Josh Wolk on hold. I was able to listen to a little while I was cleaning the other day, which kept me in a good mood while I vacuumed. The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith is my main audiobook focus. I’ve been listening on the way to and from work (as opposed to just on the way home as I normally do). I’m scared my next hold is going to come in before I finish it. These are my real problems. The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson is keeping me entertained on my phone. It’s going slowly, mostly because I read during breakfast only.

Recently finished: I finished Life After Life by Kate Atkinson last night! When I drafted this and realized I had no finished books to report on I was devastated! I’m glad I can report some progress today. Look for a review next week.

Reading Next:  As much as I want to read one of my own books, it will probably be a book club book. The next one up is The City and the City by China Mieville which sounds like a trippy science fiction. Not normally my cup of tea, but we’ll see how it goes.

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.

    Cabin Pressure sounds interesting. Life after Life is already on my TBR list, but who knows when I’ll get to it. Thanks for checking out my list.

      Life After Life was a really interesting story. I’ll have to sit on it a bit before I can write a review.

    I’ve been curious about The Cuckoo’s Calling for a while now so I’m excited to see what you think of it 🙂

      I like it so far. Rowling does an amazing job developing unique characters. I like that it’s under a pen name because it helps me separate it from Harry in my head.

    How you keep all the different books that you seem to be reading at the same time straight is beyond me! Pretty amazing! I am strictly one book at a time. I have been reading some middle grade/YA books this week. I just finished Howl’s Moving Castle by Diane Wynne Jones (an entertaining middle grade fantasy that has been around for awhile, but it was new to me), and I just started The Daughter of Smoke and Bone (definitely more YA and very engaging) by Laini Taylor. This is the first of a trilogy and all the books are available, so I may just continue with that. Then maybe I will start The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. So many books to read, so little time!

      I want to read The Daughter of Smoke and Bone sometime so it’s good to hear you like it! It always shows up on recommended lists for me.

      Both are well worth it. I hope to have a review of Life After Life up next week.
