25 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. Please, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. 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?


round houseCurrently reading:  There’s been a lot of forward movement on La Sombra del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. My goal is to finish this book by the end of the year, and I’m hoping to finish it off this summer if not sooner. It’s slow going to read in another language, but it’s been enjoyable.
I lost my eBook, Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins until another copy becomes available. On hold.
The audiobook on my phone is Stonehenge by Bernard Cornwell. It’s slowing down a bit, but I’m still enjoying it. Seven hours into a seventeen-hour story.
The audiobook in my car is The Round House by Louise Erdrich. I’m making great progress on this one and the only problem seems to be that the narrator’s voice makes me sleepy! I have to turn it off for a minute and listen to some rock music if I’m going to stay awake for the drive home. Audiobook problems.

Atomic CityRecently finished: Yikes. Nothing yet again. This is bad, I know. The books I’m moving through are all very long so it’s going to be a while before I finish any of them! This will make for an interesting post at the end of the month. Oh boy.

I was able to do one book review this week, The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan. I really enjoyed the story and recommend it to anyone interested.

White TigerReading Next: I’m still waiting to read The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga. I heard the other two woman in my book club talking about this one and I think it will be interesting to read because it seems very ingrained in Indian culture and I might put my knowledge to the test! And have to Wikipedia a few things.


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.

      It should warn you on the audiobook if the narrator has an overly soothing voice! Happy reading.

    I’m looking forward to see what you think of The White Tiger! I personally didn’t enjoy it that much, so I hope you will able to enjoy it better than I did.

    Happy Wednesday! Here’s my WWW.

      I’ve heard it’s hard to read if you don’t 100% understand the culture. We’ll see. Happy reading!

        I’ve read books set in India before and enjoyed them, but it could be that The White Tiger is different. I should probably do a reread at some point to see if I enjoy it better the second time around.
