WWW Wednesday, 2-September-2015

2 Sep

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?

Never ToldCurrently reading:  Slow going on Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. I don’t have a lot of time where I’m sitting on my phone now. Not as many doctor’s appointments. I guess that’s good?
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai is still on hold.
Close to the end but not quite done with. The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer. I’m really close to the end and I’m thinking there’s no way this can end well.
I’ve just started The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory. Not far enough into it yet to say something so look for more next week.
I’m waiting for an eAudio from the library but in the meantime, I’m starting Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. This was a free Audible book from the Ford Audiobook Club, which is making a return so if you haven’t joined yet, I encourage you to! Free audiobooks!

Hold HandsRecently finished: Got through two! Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands by Chris Bohjalian was an audiobook I’d been excited to read. It wasn’t my favorite title by this author but was a solid story. The review will be out in a few weeks.
The second on was The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. It was a quick read and I sped through it over a weekend trip to the cabin. I wanted to read it before the movie comes out because I’m pretty sure I’ll see it even though I didn’t like the first book or first movie. I feel like they should just print money and charge me for it. Ugh.

One book review this past week. I’m not a big fan of Alice Hoffman and my review of The Museum of Extraordinary Things shows that. Take a look if you’d like.

SilkwormReading Next: I put a hold on The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith on eAudio. I hope it comes in soon!
I don’t have plans for any other books right now. I’ve got a few to get through before I start thinking of that.

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!

    It always amazes me how you can read/listen to so many books at the same time! How do you do it?

    • Sam September 2, 2015 at 8:47 AM #

      Having different formats and different times to listen to each in my day helps me keep the plots separate in my head. They’re also very different subjects! Happy Wednesday!

        Yes! If I read more than one book at a time they always have to be different genres and about different topics. Otherwise they blend together and that’s no fun. 🙂

    I feel a little bit like that about The Maze Runner series. I don’t really like it, but I kept reading and will probably keep watching!


    • Sam September 2, 2015 at 12:46 PM #

      I thought the writing was better in this one at least. Oh well. Happy Wednesday!


    • Sam September 2, 2015 at 12:49 PM #

      I can’t comment on yours from my phone. I love the cover for Mechanica! I hope the book lives up to it. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    On the bright side, from the trailer at least, it looks like the movie of The Scorch Trials is going to be quite different to the book. Perhaps it will be an improvement?

      I hope so. The first film deviated s lot from the book as well. Happy Wednesday!

    I didn’t enjoy The Maze Runner at all so I didn’t bother with the movie or the sequels. Glad I’m not the only one who didn’t quite care for it. Here’s my WWW. 🙂


    • Sam September 2, 2015 at 12:52 PM #

      I did a read along for the first boo before the movie came out and most of us felt that way too. Happy Wednesday!

    I could never read so many books at the same time. I can now only handle one!

      If you switch the format it helps. Happy Wednesday!

    Happy reading.

    I’m looking forward to your opinion of Silkworm; I got a hard copy as a NaNoWriMo prize last year and have yet to read it, as it’s not my normal cup of tea.
    A day late, but here’s my entry for WWW Wednesday:

      I liked the first one so I’m excited. Have a good one!
