WWW Wednesday, 8-April-2015

8 Apr

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?


SombraCurrently reading:  No movement with La Sombra del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. It’s on hold for a while as I work my way through some book club selections.
I got Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins back! Nothing major with this one, just moving forward slowly. I hope I can hang on to it for a while and make some more progress with it.
The audiobook is Stonehenge by Bernard Cornwell. It’s interesting but a really long story. The characters’ names a bit hard to keep separate because they’re all so strange and 2000 BC-esque. I’ll have to look up a character list to write the audiobook review.
I’m really enjoying Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo. It’s a lighter story in my opinion, which doesn’t seem to go with the subject well but is still enjoyable.

Recently finished: Fail, again. Nothing new. On the bright side, I posted a review of The Round House by Louise Erdrich yesterday. Check it out!

White TigerReading Next: I’m now very definitive that The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga will be my next book. I promise I’ll get to it soon and I hope to speed through it to get back to ‘Sombra.’


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.

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!

    I’ll look out for your thoughts on Stonehenge, I’ve always wondered if I’d like Bernard Cornwall’s books. My post is here: https://lipsyy.wordpress.com/2015/04/08/this-week-in-books-08-04-2015/

      My initial thoughts are that the story is good but it seems to be going on and on and on and I don’t know where it will end! Happy reading.

    I read The Shadow of the Wind a while ago and enjoyed it. Stonehenge sounds interesting – I’ve not read any of Bernard Cornwall’s books so far. My post is here:http://www.booksplease.org/2015/04/08/this-week-in-books-8-april-2015/

      ‘Stonehenge’ is my first Cornwall as well. He’s written so much that I’m surprised I haven’t read anything else he’s written. Happy reading!

        I haven’t, though I’ve toyed with the idea of reading another Louise Erdrich book. I’ve only read the Antelope Wife and that was for school a few years ago.
