WWW Wednesday, 16-September-2015

16 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?

SilkwormCurrently reading:  Slow going on Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. I don’t have a lot of time to read it so I’m not sure how soon I could finish this. My hold expires soon and I’m not sure if I can renew it so this trend might continue…
I haven’t look at I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai yet because I’ve had Cloud Atlas. If the hold expires, I’ll get back to this one soon, but I’m almost hoping I can power through Cloud Atlas first.
Getting really close to the end of The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory. I’m enjoying it a lot. Katherine Howard’s character is really fun to read. I hope to finish it up really soon!
I’m stopped about 2/3 of the way through Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. It’s still interesting, but I’ve set it aside for my new audiobook…
I got The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith! I’m really excited about this one. It’s the same narrator as The Cuckoo’s Calling which is really nice. I’m enjoying the focus on publishing in this one. I bet it’s something Rowling/Galbraith knows a lot about!

Recently finished: Nothing finished this week. I know, I know, it’s my own fault because I keep putting books on hold. This is true, I can’t fight it.

Though I put out two book reviews since last week! Please check out my reviews of The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton (3 Stars) and Dark Places by Gillian Flynn (5 Stars).

Bird BoxReading Next: My book club met on Monday and I got my copy of Bird Box by Josh Malerman. I’m going to pick it up as soon as I finish The Boleyn Inherritance. I’m not putting another book on hold!

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.

    Happy Wednesday! I just finished a book a few minutes ago otherwise I wouldn’t have finished one this week either. I really need to get around to reading the Silkworm, especially since I loved The Cuckoo’s Calling.

      I’m really enjoying it so far. I hope you’ll like it, too. Great job finishing one and then posting! Happy Wednesday!

      I’ve been dragging my feet till now, too. It’s really good so far. Happy Wednesday!

    I like to have several books on the go, and with long books like Cloud Atlas it does mean there will be weeks and weeks before you finish them. It’s a shame you may not finish Cloud Atlas. It did take me an age to get to the end and I think I scan read some of it!

    Looking forward to hearing what you think of the Boleyn Inheritance! I finished my Gregory the other day. Here’s my list for this week http://hollykerr.ca/what-im-reading-this-week-in-books/ Happy Reading!


    • Sam September 16, 2015 at 12:22 PM #

      I’ve got about 60 pages left and a good idea of how it will end (Katherine Howard). Loving it so far! Happy Wednesday!

    I really need to take a look at the Robert Galbraith books. I wonder how many holds are on them at my library… Hope you enjoy Bird Box!

    Here’s my link.


    • Sam September 16, 2015 at 12:24 PM #

      Hopefully the first one isn’t too hard to get still. Happy Wednesday!

    I’ve really enjoyed the Galbraith books. They may not be award winning fiction but they are entertaining and well written. This is my WWW Wednesday. http://dublinbookworm.com/2015/09/16/this-week-in-books-16-9-15/


    • Sam September 16, 2015 at 5:21 PM #

      I’m enjoying them as well. I don’t read a lot of mysteries but I’m liking these and may need to look into it more. Happy Wednesday!

    You read such a lot of books at once! I’m not sure I could do that, I wish I could. I really need to read The Cuckoo’s Calling. I’ve had it for ages.


    • Sam September 16, 2015 at 5:22 PM #

      It’s really good. I’m not sure what I was expecting. The ending caught me off guard and I liked that. Happy Wednesday!


    • Sam September 16, 2015 at 5:25 PM #

      I’m having trouble commenting on your blog. Glad to hear you enjoyed ‘Liar of Dreams!’ I have high hopes for that one after enjoying the first in the series. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!


  12. Amanda Marie September 16, 2015 at 11:58 AM #

    Hooray for Wednesday! Glad to see you liked Dark Places. I haven’t read anything by Gillian Flynn yet, but want to read that and Gone Girl this Fall/Winter.

      I hope you enjoy it. It took me a bit to get into it, but once I did, I skipped chores and eating to finish it. Happy Wednesday!

    You’re keeping quite busy with all those books, aren’t you? Question, since you said you like Gregory: which book of hers would you recommend starting with?
    Here’s my WWW Wednesday:


    • Sam September 16, 2015 at 5:28 PM #

      I’d start with ‘The Queen’s Fool,’ ‘The Virgin’s Lover,’ or ‘The Constant Princess.’ Those have been my favorites. I like her books about the Tudors more than the Cousin’s War series she also writes. Personal preference I guess. Happy Wednesday!

    I hope you enjoy The Silkworm!

      Haha, good to know you liked it! The author is from a town near me and I’m tweeting him to try to see if I can meet with him after my book club meets. Happy Wednesday!

    Can’t wait to hear what you make of Bird Box. I thought it sounded really intriguing but then the reviews I read were really split – half loved it, half thought it was awful!
    It’s a bit late in the day, but here’s my WWW: https://clairehuston.wordpress.com/2015/09/16/www-wednesday-16th-september-2015/


    • Sam September 16, 2015 at 5:35 PM #

      I expect my book club will be split as well. I love the discussion when not everyone agrees! Happy Wednesday!
