11 Mar

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:  I’m still working on my resolution to read a book in Spanish and I’ve picked La Sombra del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I have a plan to get to it, but haven’t reached that point yet. As I say every week, it should be soon!
I’m working on my new eBook, Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. Not a lot of progress this week, just breakfasts and waiting at the chiropractor. Ho hum.
Atomic CityI’m reading a physical copy of The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan. I’m making the majority of my movement here and I’m clipping along at a good pace. I hope to finish this week and get back to Sombra.
The audiobook on my phone is Stonehenge by Bernard Cornwell. The narrator’s voice is still a little bit grating, but I’m really enjoying the story so far and I’m looking forward to being with this one for a long time because it’s 17 hours! Yep, a whopper.
I began the audiobook of The Round House by Louise Erdrich. This is my book club’s next selection and I’m excited about it. It’s been recommended to me several times and I missed the meeting where my other book club met to talk about it.

Recently finished: After all the progress last week, I’ve got nothing this week. I guess that’s the way this reading stuff goes. Oh well.

Two book reviews since last week! I reviewed Zeitoun by Dave Eggers and The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey by Walter Mosley. Both were quality reads.

Reading Next: I’m still waiting to read The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga. Yes, this has been here forever, but it’s the only upcoming book on my radar and I’m not sure when it’s going to get here. I plan to spend my time getting back to Sombra and making movement on that one.

Leave a comment with your link and a comment (if you’re so inclined). Take a look at the other participant links in the comments and look at what others are reading.

Have any opinions on these choices?

Until next time, write on.

      I like having a lot going on at once. Round House drew me in very quickly and I’m really enjoying it. Happy Reading!

      There’s a lot of controversy surrounding the subject of the novel which makes it an even more interesting read! Happy Wednesday.

    I was not the fan of Roundhouse that most are… I have no idea why that is 😉


    • Sam March 11, 2015 at 2:35 PM #

      The writing so far is reminding me of ‘The Art of Fielding’ which I adored. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the story holds up to expectations!

    Your list always astounds me!
    Thanks for already visiting my Wednesday post

    There are a lot of interesting titles on your list! I saw The Round House over at goodreads; it sounds like an interesting read! I like historical fiction and the story is set in my birth year, what more can I ask? 😉 Seeing you mention La Sombra Del Viento makes me remember that I should start reading Spanish books as well…

    Happy reading! Here’s my WWW.

      Good luck reading in Spanish!!! It’s been a challenge for me but really rewarding. Happy reading!

        It’s been ages since I read something in Spanish! But since I have to use it all day long, I don’t think it will be too much of a problem picking it up again… That leaves only the hardest part: actually picking a title to read next. 😉


      • Sam March 11, 2015 at 9:33 PM #

        Haha the endless possibilities. Good luck!

        I have a few titles on my TBR: Conversación En La Catedral by Mario Vargas Llosa, La Reina Del Sur and Limpieza De Sangre by Arturo Pérez-Reverte… Plus a few series sequels that have been translated in Spanish (Legend, The Grisha, The Maze Runner). A lot of choices! 🙂
