11 Feb

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at Should be Reading, and revived here on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses. So, let’s get to it!


The Three Ws are:

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

Currently reading:  No movement on The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. It’s hard being so close to the end but not moving forward. I hope I can keep pushing this one soon.
One of my resolutions this year was to read a book in Spanish and I’ve picked La Sombra del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I was able to get through a bit this week, but nothing to be proud of. This one will be here for a while.
I started a new audiobook that I’m really enjoying, Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I read another of Rowell’s books at the end of last year and really enjoyed it. She has such a natural flow with characters and this is no exception. I’m really liking it.
I got a new eBook, Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. This one is slow so far and that’s how I usually am with eBooks so no surprise. I saw that this was made into a Nick Cage movie recently so I’ll have to compare the two once I finish it.

Recently finished: The snowfall of finished books continues! I finished the audiobook of The Diviners by Libba Bray last Wednesday. I almost changed my post but decided to keep it for this week. Woo hoo!
Thursday night I finished The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera for Read Along #3. My post will probably go up next week to finish off the discussion. I’ll be starting up another Read Along soon so stay tuned for that! I’d love to have you all join in.
I finished Claire of the Sea Light by Edwidge Danticat early this week. It was a lot faster of a read than I thought it would be and I enjoyed it a lot.

One review finished this week as well. You can read my review of California by Eden Lepucki but I’ll warn you, I wasn’t a fan.

Reading Next:  I’ll be going to my book club tonight and our next book is Zeitoun by Dave Eggers. I’ve read two Eggers books before and really enjoyed them so I’m excited to start this one tonight!

Leave a comment with your link and a comment (if you’re so inclined). Spread the word, WWW Wednesday is back!

Until next time, write on.

    I liked Left Behind. I read the series up until book 8 and then there were just too many characters to keep track of. I think the set had 12 books total. EEP 🙂

      I’m always excited and nervous to start a long series. It’s good to know the story doesn’t end when the book does, but intimidating to see how much there is to read!

    What do you think of Eleanor & Park so far? I loved that book, but it is not my favorite of hers. Thanks for hosting! Here’s my WWW: https://darcysbookblog.wordpress.com/2015/02/11/www-wednesdays-feb-11/

      I’m devouring E&P. I liked Fangirl more because I could relate to it better, but I love these characters. Happy Reading!

      I’d been putting it of for a while, too, but a good time came up and now I’m hooked!

      So far I’m really liking it! I hope this continues through the end.

    Happy Wednesday! I listened to the audiobook of Eleanor & Park last year and really enjoyed it.



    • Sam February 11, 2015 at 3:34 PM #

      Audio is the way to go! I love that this one has dual narrators. Happy Reading!

    Ah Eleanor And Park, definitely a book that would be interesting as an audiobook! I’m not a big fan because I normally don’t like the voices of the narrators, but I might give it a go… I’m also most likely going to do a La Sombra Del Viento reread myself this year.

    Here’s my WWW.

      I like these narrators okay the male narrator does a weird voice for Eleanor, but the rest of it is great. Happy reading!

    I hope you are enjoying Eleanor and Park. I LOVED that one! It is my favorite of Rowell’s books that I have read . . . but then again, I have only read two. Ha


    • Sam February 12, 2015 at 6:27 AM #

      This is my third of hers and I really like it but I related more to Fangirl. Nothing against E&P, just personal preference. Happy reading!
