WWW Wednesday, 7-May-2014

14 May

As anticipated, my carpool has slowed down my audio book consumption. It’s still at an okay pace, but nothing like it was before. I’m sad to say that my edition of MizB’s WWW will, for the first time, report little progress!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 trucking through The Geography of Memory by Jeanne Murray Walker. I should be able to finish this before next week! It’s a bit slow right now. A little too much memory and not enough action. The flashbacks are long and seem disjointed. On my phone I’m reading The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson. It’s still a slow drive, but I’ve been reading in very small pieces. I’m on m second part of The Maze Runner by James Dashner. My first Read-Along post will be up tomorrow so check back to read that. If you’re interested in joining, let me know soon before we get too far along! We’re just starting chapters 10-19 and will be done with them by 26-May. On audiobook I’m working on I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak. It’s nice that this audiobook is on my phone because I can listen to it while I do house chores.

Recently finished: Nothing new to report! I posted a review of The City & The City by China Mieville, but I finished it a few weeks ago. Hopefully there’s more progress next week.

Reading Next:  Still planning on reading my NaNo. I’ll get a new book club selection on Monday but I hope that doesn’t slow me down! There’s a Poets & Writers on my nightstand I need to read, too!

Expect slower progress from me in the future, unfortunately. I’m trying to figure out a way to balance this carpool and my book obsession. 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.

You can follow me on GoodreadsFacebookTwitterPinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at SamAStevensWriter@gmail.com. And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

    Just ask your carpool people how they feel about books. Maybe they’d like to listen too!! 🙂 Here’s my WWW Wednesday.

      I’m thinking about asking her. We’ll have to find titles we’re both interested in which might be a struggle!

    What is I Am The Messenger like? I’ve heard lots of people talk about it but haven’t really heard any solid thoughts or opinions. Have you read The Book Thief? Is it similar/better/not as good? Thanks for your visit to my WWW!

      ‘Messenger’ is VERY different from ‘Book Thief.’ It’s set in semi-modern Australia and tells the story of a kind who is given mysterious messages telling him to help people. He’s really helping himself. I like it and it’s well written, but it’s not really comparable to ‘The Book Thief’ on topic or style. I hope that answers your question!

    I keep intending to read The Maze Runner, but never seem to get around to it! 😀 Happy Reading!

      If you’re thinking about it, consider joining my Read Along. Shoot me an email if you want more information. We’re reading Chapters 10-19 by 24-May so you’re not very far behind if you joing now.

    I adore I Am The Messenger! It seems like a great book to listen to on audio!
    Happy reading & listening!

      Thanks! I’m really enjoying it.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on the Maze Runner! I need to read it before the movie comes out >__< Thanks for stopping by my blog; have a wonderful week!

    I Am The Messenger seems like an interesting read! Also don’t think I’ve said it before but I think it’s very cool that you did NaNoWriMo 🙂

      The real problem with NaNo is editing the darn thing! I have it printed out and I’m going to have to do a really deep read with it to be ready for another draft.
