29 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?

White TigerCurrently reading:  No movement with La Sombra del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Please don’t be mad. I want to finish this and I will return to it.
Steady progress with Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. I’m close to the end but know that I’m nowhere close to the end of this story. It’s obvious this first book will barely touch the tip of the iceberg in the series.
I’ll be a long time reading A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. It’s been a good journey so far, but I’ve only just begun. Not sure how long this is going to take, but I’m guessing a while.
I finally started The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga! Yes, after such a long wait, I’ve finally started. So far, it’s alright. The narrator has a very strong voice that makes the whole thing really fun.
I’m unable to cook without an audiobook now so I started another on my phone, The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine. My amazing friend Katherine suggested this one to me because it’s set in the 1920s and she knows how much I love the 20s. So far it’s really fun. I’m excited to get more into it.

DarklyRecently finished: I finished A Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick last week. It wasn’t my favorite, but it was ok. Review coming next week.

Speaking of reviews, I posted two this week. I reviewed Very Good Lives by J.K. Rowling on Monday and posted a review for Stonehenge by Bernard Cornwell yesterday. Take a look and tell me what you think!

Reading Next: My book club met Monday and our next book is going to be The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer. This is part of the ‘Everyone’s Reading’ program so I’m sure there will be some other posts about this book. I hope I enjoy it!

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 really do enjoy seeing which books you’ve made progress with each week – shame Stonehenge didn’t really do it for you! Here is my Wednesday post https://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/this-week-in-books-april-29/

      Thank you for reading! When I read something and have been told to compare it to something I loved, chances are I won’t like it. Sad reality. Happy Wednesday!

      I was reluctant for a while but I figure it’s time to dive right in! No time like the present. Happy Wednesday!

    I’m glad you are enjoying The White Tiger so far! I’m considering doing a reread of that one to see if I enjoy it better the second time around…

    Happy Wednesday! Here’s my WWW.

      I finished it a bit ago. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would! I hope you can find something you like about it a second time around. Happy Wednesday!

    Ahh, you’re still making the trek through Game of Thrones! I’ll actually be picking it up soon as well (random decision maybe triggered by you) and I’m hoping to like it. 🙂 My wednesday reads are here: https://snailswithbooks.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/www-wednesday-april-29th/


    • Sam April 29, 2015 at 8:53 PM #

      I’ll be trekking through it for a long time! It’s 35 hours on audio and I’m not pushing to finish it soon. I hope you enjoy it, I’ve liked it so far. Happy Wednesday!
