27 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?

BohemiansCurrently reading:  No movement with La Sombra del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I really want to work on this one over the summer so I’ll be getting to it in the next few months.
Good progress with A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’m not sure how far I am into it because the format I’m using isn’t very conducive to figuring that out. I guess it will end at some point?
I hope to finish The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine soon. I’m listening to it while I cook which will be more this week because my triathlon is over and I don’t have to worry about training for a bit.
I’m still a bit skeptical of Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. So far, it’s interesting but not anything special for me. Reviews I’ve looked at said to wait until you pass the first section because then it becomes amazing. We shall see
I’m making steady progress with The Bohemians by Ben Tarnoff. It’s a bit dry, but it’s a historical narrative so that’s to be expected. I hope to finish it soon and move back to some fiction. Also, the author favorited my #FF tweet, so that was awesome!

Recently finished: After finishing two last week, I’m not surprised I didn’t finish anything. I did get to a review for The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer so go check that out when  you have time.

WidowReading Next: Still planning on it being A Widow for One Year by John Irving. I hope to get it soon and read it second so I’m not the last of our group to read it this time!

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.

    Well it looks like you are making steady progress with your reads – I wasn’t impressed by Cloud Atlas either but I know lots of readers loved it. Here is my Wednesday post https://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2015/05/27/this-week-in-books-may-27/

      So far I’m on your team but I’ve read Adam Ewing’s part is the hardest to get through. Happy Wednesday!

    I couldn’t get into Cloud Atlas either. Perhaps it’s one of those books you need to read at least twice to fully appreciate it? (no time for that, unfortunately!). I’m so impressed you read more than one thing at once – my brain wouldn’t cope.

      I love reading more than one book at a time because I tend to suffer from a book burnout if I’m stuck with just one. I need the variety. Happy Wednesday!

    I have to have more than one book on the go at the same time too – I like to switch between them and at different times of day. Here is my post for this week – http://www.booksplease.org/2015/05/27/this-week-in-books-27-may-2015/

    Happy Wednesday! 🙂 Looks like you’re in a similar situation to me – sometimes there’s progress and sometimes there’s not.

      Haha true I hope I can get through some of these soon! A lot of them are very good. Happy Wednesday.

    I’ve heard really mixed things about Cloud Atlas as well, and I’m not sure if I want to read it any time soon… I hope it will get better for you as you continue. Happy reading and thanks for visiting my WWW post! 🙂

      I’m keeping my fingers crossed! I want it to be good. Happy Wednesday!

    I am the same way about reading books that I am not that interested in. I am usually a one book woman but I will occasionally read more than one book at a time if I just can’t get into it. This always seems to help. I have never read Cloud Atlas but I own it (story of my life) so hopefully when I do it will not drag that much. Here is my post: http://thepetitebookworm.blogspot.com/2015/05/www-wednesday-may-27-2015.html


    • Sam May 27, 2015 at 8:50 PM #

      Haha that happens to me all the time! I see books on other people’s WWW and think ‘oh, I own that.’ I like having the variety. Makes my day go faster! Happy Wednesday!

    Man! I really need to read Game of Thrones soon! Here’s my WWW Wednesday list:



    • Sam May 28, 2015 at 3:24 PM #

      My apologies that I didn’t get to this before now. It got caught in my spam filter somehow. Welcome to WWW Wednesday! I’m really enjoying it even though high fantasy isn’t normally my genre. I hope you enjoy it. Happy Wednesday/Thursday!

    I was thinking about purchasing Cloud Atlas for months however I hear such mixed things I’m never sure if I should spend the money or not! Maybe I’ll wait until it’s cheap on kindle before I rush into buying a $20 book… A shame you’re not having too much luck though!! Here’s my post: https://nicareads.wordpress.com/2015/05/28/www-wednesday-27th-may-2015/


    • Sam May 28, 2015 at 6:03 AM #

      I got it from my library so I haven’t paid for it. I think I’d push myself through it more if I’d paid for it lol. Happy Wednesday/Thursday!
