6 May

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?

KingfisherCurrently reading:  No movement with La Sombra del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I’m hoping to get back to it really soon, though. I’ve sped through a few books so have some time to read this between book club selections.
Still going with A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’m liking it so far. I hope the story lines start to cross more because they seem a bit disjointed.
I’m enjoying The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine. It’s pretty great and I’m sad that it’s only 8 hours.
I began a new book club selection, The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer. The author is going to be in town soon to speak so there will be a few more posts on this book and this author. Stay tuned!
I just grabbed a new eBook, Waiting to be Heard: A Memoir by Amanda Knox. I haven’t read a memoir in a while and the Amanda Knox story sounds like a really good one!

White TigerRecently finished: I finished The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga. I didn’t expect to like it too much, but I did enjoy it. My book club discussion will hopefully be tomorrow and I’ll get to see what the other ladies though.
I also finished Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins which was my ebook for the past few months. It was very different from what I normally read and I liked the story but wasn’t a fan of the characters. I’m looking forward to writing a review on it and sorting out my feelings on it.

OceanReading Next: Nothing immediate, especially because I hope to work on ‘Sombra.’ In a few weeks, I’ll be getting a copy of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman for book club. I’m excited to read my first solo Gaiman work. The only other one of his I’ve read was Good Omens, co-written with Terry Pratchett.

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.

    The only Neil Gaiman book I’ve read was The Graveyard Book and I really enjoyed it and I’m glad you’re liking Game of Thrones.

    The Amanda Know memoir sounds interesting; she was in the news recently here again so very topical.

    funny, I had not participated in this meme for so long that I didn’t even know we had a new host! Wonderful, nice new home!
    I also read lots of books at the same time, but I decided to only post 2 for each category, 1 being an audio.
    I wanted to much to like Zafon, but I had to DNF the first volume about half way…
    BUT I LOVED the book by Gaiman, actually my 1st Gaiman ever. If you like audiobooks, you should try it, he reads it himself, perfect tone and voice for it. Awesome.
    Here is my own post: http://wordsandpeace.com/2015/05/06/www-wesnesdays-562015/

      I’m a big audio person myself. I have a 40 minute commute (each way) so it’s a good way to spend time in the car.
      I was thinking about doing the Gaiman as audio, but I’m in the middle of Game of Thrones and the sheer length of that one intimidates me.
      Welcome back to WWW Wednesday! Have a good one!

    I’m glad you ended up enjoying The White Tiger! I personally loved The Ocean At The End Of The Lane; I think it’s one my favorite Neil Gaiman novels. I hope you will enjoy it as well.

    Happy reading and thanks for visiting my WWW.
